Taking prepping a bit too far?

There comes a point when you are dropping your bucket down a dry well.

And that’s why the man who wrote the book on the impending end of the world …won’t show you his doomsday bunker.

Asked to take us to the safe house, he and his wife and three children will be fleeing to today, he was adamant that its location had to remain secret.

”I’ve turned down every request for a visit,” he said.

”One of the fundamentals of prepping is you don’t let anyone know what you’ve got or why you’ve got it.”

The reason for the secrecy has less to do with paranoia and more to do avoiding awkward situations, he said.

Usually preppers only stock enough for them and their family.

If, you know, it is the end of the world, the end of time and, well, The End, I don’t really see the point of stocking up on beans and bullets, you know?

    Yeah, when the time comes for a human extinction-level event, the only thing I’m doing to prepare is ask God to forgive me, and go sit on the porch.

    The Mayan calendar has a short count. My Gregorian calendar has a short count called months. The Mayan has a long count that ends on 12/21/2012. My Gregorian calendar has a long count that ends December 31st. Earth will look the same, people and all December 22ed as well as January 1.

    * If the Mayans were so good at predicting the future, there would still be Mayans.

    (I made this one up last Friday) :
    * Next Friday, the Mayan long count calendar will end as we usher in a new era of humanity known as “Saturday”. Seriously, folks – I have a calendar in my kitchen which ends every single year.
