    don't get me wrong, still a nasty matter. Makes you wonder just what the word 'privacy' means these days. Takes you back to the old 'conspiracy theory' thing aswell.

    This is where i'd say some rubbish about Lord Lucan or Freddie Mercury.

    teotwawki doesn't necessarily have to be the result of any conspiracy (although there are several theories that hold a bit of water)

    think of the global debt crisis. so many modern countries just hanging on by a thread. the possibility of societal, economic, or full government collapse is very real in many countries around the world. It's truly a shame that this topic tends to get laughed at more than it is taken seriously.

    think of it... if the good ol' US of A crashes, we'll most likely drag most of the rest of the civilized world down with us. the topic of teotwawki/WROL/SHTF (whatever you want to call it) is very realistic, and shouldn't be treated as "conspiracy".

    I'm sorry to get so roweled up about it, but this is the subject that I've spent the better part of 3 years preparing for. not zombies, not crazy government conspiracy theories, but simply the realistic possibility that my government CAN collapse under the right circumstances, and I'd like to be able to provide a future for my family if that happens.

    3 years? I've been at it since 9/11 and I've got a friend who's been at it for over 30 years.
