A rise in prepping? Imagine that…

CANTERBURY, England — “Doomsday prepping” or stockpiling food, medicine, weapons and other supplies in case of an apocalyptic scenario has long been considered peculiar behavior only exhibited by conspiracy theorists and other extremists in the United States. However, such prepping has actually been steadily on the rise in the U.S. over the past decade. So, what’s causing this surge in stockpiled rice packets and underground bunkers? One group of researchers say it is an ever growing sense of impending doom in American culture.

    Maybe its the realization that the government can’t be trusted and the knowledge that when the welfare stops flowing millions of self entitled leeches will gladly kill you for your shoes.

    We’re trying for the Mormon one year for everyone in the household. But man, it’s hard.

    All I can say is, welcome to the real world, so you decided to grow up and own some stones. Now getting going to the black market and get a gun and a shit load of ammo! Ya going to need it!

    Those Brits better take notice and do the same. The Liberty ships might not be sailing next go around.

    My wife tells me we can easily go a year with what we have in the basement. I hope it’s a complete waste of money. We rotated some stuff out a few years ago and some down and out friends used it for six months. We got some landscape rock from them so they wouldn’t feel beholden to us. Now I know it’s edible. She went a bit wild. We even have canned butter from Australia. Things may go to hell but I’ll have butter for my bread. (See “The King’s Breakfast” by A.A.Milne.) Note a years supply of salt is less than $5. It’s a start.

      The aussie canned butter is nice, keeps forever and is great for cooking with. Most other oils have a fairly short shelf life before flavor starts to go.
