    and if we ran out of food, we could live off beer and water. With the ones Andy has Aging, int he fridge and his closet, we prob have almost 100 22 ounce bottles.
    We're kinda hoarders now that I think about it.

    Im used to not being able to use ATM cards. Theres a few stores I go to that have a habit of going offline, unable to make transaction, I guess they are getting us read for the shitty fan.. You have no idea< no you have a idea how pissed a person can get when they have 100+dollars worth of stuff, been shopping for a hour or longer and you get to the register and your debit card will not make a connection. One store I go to has a alternate form, they fill it out the credit credit card info, Like they did it 10,15 years ago with that metal swipper thingy. < I guess that not everyone recycled them.

    scenario 1 - if that were to happen now, I have twenty dollars on me, a tank of gas, and enough food for a week, maybe a bit less but I could stretch it, I think I could take that one in stride.

    scenario 2 - in the event of a collapse of civilization, or at least general law and order for an undermined amount of time I would probably be quick to gather several close friends and assuming they had the will, raid the grocery store, I would most likely back into the glass doors right upto the isles. After this four or five guys run in armed and start gathering food and loading it in the truck while two or three guys protect the truck itself. Kill anyone who tried to stop me and leave. When I got home we would divide the food and drink. After my friends parted ways I would get my dogs (2 pitbulls) and put one chained to the front door protecting the front of the house, and one in the backyard to protect the back of the house (there not mean but they bark and intruders wouldn't know. I may repeat similar attacks for supplies as needed. Most likely would spend my days driving in circles around my house with my father in the back of the truck with a rifle, you know just so everyone knows who's in charge. Man that would rock as a movie.

    Scenario 1) Not much of an issue. I generally have enough staples on hand to last a month. Granted, I'd be eating the fuck out of beans and rice...but I wouldn't starve. The only real problem that I could see in my situation would be fuel for my vehicle. I tend to keep it at least half full and don't really drive much...so I'm thinking I could get by on that.

    Scenario 2) As stated, I've pretty much got food covered for up to a month. After that though? I live in an apartment so there's only so much stuff I can lay up.

    If this scenario ever happened...I would have to assume that things are pretty good and fuckered and would have to make some serious decisions. Number one...assuming I'm still employed...I'd ask to be payed in cash. If that wasn't possible (and I'm almost certain it wouldn't be) I'd have to cosider getting creative. In other words, time to start foraging.

    Longer than two months and I say fuck it...take my knives and gear and start roughing it.

    Then I'd probably get real skinny for the first time in my life. And die shortly thereafter.

    i think youd find starving to death much less work and probably more enjoyable..;)

    i'd be prepared, i have enough food water, and med supplies to last me and my family...i been stocking up on staples for the past 2 months, i've got enough beans rice and ketchup and bbq sauce for quite a while. granted i hate beans but i'll eat them if i have to.

    although i've never heard of any drug dealer not taking money in case i did have to get one on the line, but that aspect is covered as well it goes right along with the meds

    I don't think anythings coming so I'm not preparing.

    Although if that day came, the grasshopper could shoot the ant.

    I'd just sit back, relax, and let Mr. Key & The Government deal with it and save us all :)

    I would be able to live exactly as I am now, as I have neither bank accounts nor stocks/shares.
