    Viscount St. Albans

    National Geographic Discovery Channel is looking for you:

    Relatedly, is this guy from episode #1 brilliant or insane. I can’t quite decide.


    In answer to your question… if he is insane, then I am somewhat off, if he is brilliant, then I am rather smart.
    What he is doing, his preparations for for protection in case of disaster I find unsustainable (hungry hordes would, or will, overrun him) however I do think we should make some preparations for some very difficult times ahead. But more emphasis should be on localizing and community building.

    Viscount St. Albans

    I hate crowds,

    and this new Reality show on Prepping is like Mr. T telling people to invest in gold.

    When I see it, I run like hell in the opposite direction.


    My feelings thoughts: If I have to go to these lengths, given my life experience, current and expected health/fitness status and education, well – it’s already over and an old fashioned revolver with one bullet will suffice.

    My wife and I (is that sexist/paternalistic?) have discussed this sort of stuff on several occasions and whilst we may choose different final resolutions our ultimate conclusion is that it would be pointless trying.

    WE are a bigger problem than CME’s from my perspective and this is all a bit of Jungian projection – placing the problem within, without.

    Entertaining – Yeah?
