I have a spring so that shouldn't be an issue.

Until it's befouled.
Your setup may be better than I imagine, but it still seems like a temporary respite. I honestly don't think it's possible to stay hidden long enough to survive when essentially everyone who didn't plan as well is your enemy.
If you have a plan, that puts you ahead of probably 75% of the population. If it is a good plan, you're ahead of 95%. Then there is chance.
I'm not particularly concerned with the end of the Mayan calendar, although there may indeed be something to it. Who knows?
But civilization falling scenarios will leave survivors, and it won't necessarily be the strongest or those with the most resources. There will be a strong 'random' element to it.
Regardless of what they actually meant by that, there is a real foundation to that logic: the end of the world as we know it most likely to occur due to overpopulation or the side-effects thereof. I'm not saying the best solution is ritual human sacrifice, but at least they were doing SOMETHING about a real problem that most of us seem to be ignoring.
Also, the 'Mayan' calendar is not actually Mayan. They inherited its system from a much older culture. We know it dates back as far as the Olmecs, but may be much older still.
Despicable savagery is in the eye of the beholder. The Mayans were what they were. The Spaniards were what they were. If there is an argument for one of those two groups being despicable savages, then that argument applies equally well to the other group.
I was so beat that I couldn't think clearly and actually celebrated once the troopy was out of the sand's grip - only to realize I then had to dig the tire out again and fill in the hole!
It is good honest work though and the body sings afterwards (in a painful way).
But so were the acts of the Spaniards.
When they arrived at Cholula, Cortez and his men were welcomed as Gods. They believed Cortez to be the Plumed Serpent, returning from the ocean. The people celebrated around them. They took advantage of this reception to quietly close off the exits of the celebration venue and slaughter the celebrants.
Chuckles and is sure I passed that puddle of Malcolm a couple of weeks back and understands fully the requirements of survival with no outside source and is glad her kids are very well trained and have good chances of taking care of at least their own needs with the onset of overpopulation. My main goal in life is to teach my kids to provide for all their needs without outside assistance if necessary, and they're already at 7 and 8 years of age quite capable in that regard (and look outwardly quite normal I might add... not little wild haired savage things)
My point was that all the preparation in the world didn't help him in the end.
I'll be sure and do that, I'll bet it misses you too!
I wonder where the NFL has built their underground football fields. In America, El Shaddai ("God Almighty") will "trump" 21 December 2012.
As the date approaches, I plan to start killing people. I hope to "outdo" Harold Fredrick Shipman (14 January 1946 – 13 January 2004). I think I should go ahead and get started.
"Harold Frederick Shipman (of the U. K.) is the most prolific serial killer in modern recorded history with 250+ murders being positively ascribed to him. Another suspicious deaths may be linked to Shipman."
It reminds me of those idiotic books like Who Moved My Cheese, a book that spurned a literal cottage industry of similarly worthless and silly books (I think "Sniff" and "Scurry" were frauds, but that is jmho).
Touché. I'll go shread our Wills asap.IFF:
i was going to make a will but then i realized why bother as there would be no one left to be an executor of it.
Sure it counts, but "preliminary stages"? Time runs short, my friend.86Dude:
I’m in the preliminary stages of building a bunker/fallout shelter/bug in box. Does this count?
That reminds me of what my father-in-law (deceased) told his son,Freedom&Liberty:
Kill them and take their shit. Survival has no rules.
"Never, ever fight, Greg. Avoid them. Run. Get out of the situation. There is no shame in even being called a coward, for it could be worse. But if you cannot get away from a fight and you must fight; if there is no way to avoid it; if you know it is inevitable? There is only one rule: Win. If you have to use a hammer, a pick ax, a gun, run over some one with a bull dozer, it doesn't matter. Win. Whatever it takes, win. It beats the hell out of getting losing your life."
I'd never thought about it but my father-in-law had a point.
I guess DA will shut down on Dec 21.
