    we are Preparednoid. Just thought I'd toss out my word for it. I usually respond with this when people think I'm on the nuts-o end of the DOOM stick.

    I've experienced blizzards, ice storms and hurricanes which left me off the grid for weeks. I call being prepared common sense.

    The firearms are cheap insurance which I can also have fun with; try that with you home owner's or medical insurance. ;)

    We foresee things other people refuse to see. The main thing is our minds are prepared and trained for unforeseen circumstances, which will blow out the mind of an unprepared person.
    They will be thirsty, hungry and in shock, easy prey.

    Are you planning on eating them, or just keeping them away from your preps, like you do the other vermin.....

    Yeah, humans are the other, other white meat. Kinda like pig. I think. [drooling] ha, no just kidding. But yeah, like pig. We eat just about anything, plenty of fat. Much like a pig. Maybe Japanese would taste more like rubbery scallops. Vegetarians would be kind of like a starved piglet, but the average couch potato might be more like an enormous boar. Instead of cysts and other parasites, you might have to worry about biting into dark areas of cancerous, festering flesh. That would be not good. [yack] Look at me jabber.

    I vote humans taste like pigs. Maybe I will do some reading on cannibalism. I doubt many have to share their strange cuisine tastes in this department, but it's worth a look.

    Hrm. Wikipedia reports veal.
    Interesting. So, perhaps a veal-like taste with more of a pork texture. I'll take their word for it.

    Yep, I would rather be Preparednoid than be a sheepanoid, caught with my pants down unprepared!

    Some people are so totally unprepared although they have a gas grill they didn't own a metal pot.

    Yes, we loaned her some pots. :D

    Unlike other times when people worried about future events such as y2k, Now it is not just an educated guess, the Numbers just doesn't add up. Our spending is out pacing our growth and we lost our manufacturing base. More people in government than farming, and manufacturing, and the government is the only one hiring now in fact they decide they need someone to operate their face book page and will pay 115,000 a year.
