It's all about people who are abso-freaking-lutely convinced some major global catastrophe resulting in the end of the world as we know it will befall us, and they want to be prepared.
Not prepared in the way that you or I might have a first aid kit or even a box in the garage that contains a radio, batteries, flashlights, canned foods and distilled water. We might feel "prepared" for your average natural disaster such as an earthquake or flood.
Not these people. They are going so much further than disaster preparedness.
We're talking about shelves stocked full of non-perishable foods and other supplies. Everything from beans to toilet paper, to seeds and weapons.
They also build special "alternate homes" they can go to when the shit hits the fan.
My question is: Why?
Why are these people so concerned with surviving an apocalyptic event? Why do they want to be left when everyone is gone? Why do they feel the need to take on this enormous endeavor?
Personally, I'd rather just go with everyone else. I would prefer to just accept fate.
If the world is ending....doncha think there might be a reason for that?
It's the circle of life, man.
And honestly, the people who are into this....let's just say I'm not sure I would want to be around in a world where they're the ones being the leaders.
So I guess you could say it's win-win. The apocalypse happens, I die, the preppers live, and they can all have their messed up, fight for survival world with all their like-minded friends.
I'm thinking they don't have anything else to worry about. Must be nice.
