    The following videos are posted on YouTube. These videos are property of History Channel, and are being posted only for educational purposes. It adresses TEOTWAWKI, courtesy of a viral pandemic. I recommend showing these to your friends, family, anyone who needs to be educated on TEOTWAWKI, preparedness, and the mindset. Our civilization is so fragile. I love the line: "We have a saying, we are 9 meals away from anarchy".

    I saw the entire documentary today...very folks living in la-la land would be in some serious doodoo when SHTF...And the documentary was only about an EMP...Knowledge is power!

    An interesting series.....a good discussion starter, and training tool for wargaming potential shtf scenarios. Plenty of what-not-to-do situations to dissect and come up with better strategies.

    The thing that scares me most in SHTF is people panicking and acting crazy and irrational...You never know what they would do...And if your spouse or kids don't take you seriously and say things like "Nothing will ever happen" and "You are nuts!", you have a very serious problem. I bribed my kids into watching After Apocalypse, and I'm taking them camping, and I try to make them learn as much as possible through games...

    Falcon, indeed I did. I opened my eyes a bit further and made my resolution to stay prepared even stronger. You know, we can prepare physically with tangible items such as food storage, water, medical supplies but it's harder for me to prepare mentally in terms of what to expect from other people. Especially those who aren't thinking about the future.

    i am so glad that my wife isn't even close to a city girl. if she was like that, i unfortunately would have to bury her in the back yard during the first few weeks.

    My wife said if she was like that, she would kill herself. and if she didn't well ...

    it is sad but these videos are pretty much what might happen. The revelations of ny during the blackout and New Orleans just drive the point home.

    them city slickers are just nutz. glad i got out of the big city years ago.

    note to self, need more ammo, fuel and water ![js]

    I cheated and downloaded the whole vid as one file so i can go back and reinforce my position that i'm not going to be a statistic. passing it around to some prepper friends. thanks for the headsup on the video.

    This video was made with information from Katrina and NY. IMO this is the best way to, as you put it, reinforce the prepper mindset, and at the very least, edu-ma-cate those who don't have one.

    I like the Viral pandemic angle because the Swine Flu scare is still relatively fresh in people's minds. Even though this last "scare" led to very little fruit, in the SHTF sense, people here in Texas were downright wide-eyed and seriously puckered from the few who DID have swine flu, and died. School districts were closed, some even stayed closed for an extended period of time. Loads of rumors and second hand information had people in a near panic. We were quite literally on the brink, and God saw fit to pull our chestnuts out of the fire. Next time, He may not.

    It's quite an eye opener for people who are new to the prepping lifestyle, and for those who aren't "into" prepping. It's a real good "what if" scenario to think about as well.

    This is something that all the city people with the ideas of heading out to the hills should watch. I am willing to bet that about 90% of them will not even be able to get to the hills once something does happen.

    Thanks for the links. I am going to watch this over the weekend, or sooner if i get the chance and ask my wife to watch it, she agrees with having some things in reserve but is kind of half hearted about prepping.

    To her a months supply is plenty, I am preparing more than that anyways but it always helps if your on the same page.

    This is a pretty decent series. I showed this to my two boys (ages 18 and 15) and both of them have now become interested in prepping.

    After dragging three male teenagers through that age bracket, do your best to keep them interested. It is going to be a chore, but eventually worth it.

    this looks like a pretty good recipe for keeping mankind from ever becoming more than a hairless ape. If this was done in the first place there would never have been more than a dream of leaving earth. Nothing worthwhile would have ever come of mankind's sad and doomed existence.

    I've found that some media has been helpful to a point in getting their interest up. The movie Book of Eli did a pretty good job with that, as did Red Dawn and The Road Warrior.
