    There's preparedness, emergency preparedness, natural disaster preparedness, apocalyptic preparedness and then there's Doomsday preparedness which consists of placing your head between your knees and ..............

    From the previews, I think it's going to be a big bowl of granola; what isn't fruit, or nuts, is flakes.
    A few doomsday scenarios and the likely outcome:
    If we get into an all out nuclear exchange, and I mean a BIG exchange, you gonna die.
    If the sun has a MASSIVE solar mass ejection and it hits us, you gonna die.
    If a meteor or comet 1 mile in diameter or larger hits the Earth, you gonna die.
    If one of the nearest stars goes supernova and hits us with particle and gamma radiation, you gonna die.
    If a pulsar forms from the supernova it would bombard us with the full spectrum of electromagnetic and particle radiation and, you gonna die.
    Biological attacks are going to be localized due to the delivery of the pathogen. Travel will spread it, but once recognized, travel will be stopped. But once the source is identified, it will probably precipitate a nuclear retaliation, but that will most likely be localized to the country of the guilty party; they gonna die right back.
    Preparing for emergencies is prudent; preparing for doomsday is we-taw-did.

    Reminds me of Y2K.

    Acquaintances asked me if I was stocking up on food. I told them "No, I saw my neighbors stocking up on food so I'm just stocked up on ammo."
    That's all I got.

    Sounds like the Woody Woodpecker cartoon where he and a wolf are facing each other starving to death.

    You got one of their posts, and I reported the other before I found this one
