Preparedness is the key for preventing a disaster from turning into a catastrophe. When the shit, and I mean the real shit, goes down you may have only minutes or seconds to react. In this crucial window of opportunity every action you undertake may have ramifications for days and weeks to come. Your survival three months in the future may hinge on you making the right decisions in that critical moment.
You have to be ready for GO TIME.
Could be a natural disaster, could be man made. Your life is threatened and where you are is no longer safe. There is no way you could possibly in a million years plan for every scenario, but you can at least be ready for some of them.
Possible shit going down in your area:
So shit is going down. You know it, which means it is GO TIME. You got to act to confront the problems at hand. What do you do?
a) Panic. Shit yourself and piss your pants like a baby and start crying (like a baby).
b) Call 911 and tell the cops to save you.
c) Ignore that shit.
d) Plan ahead.
Wrong! The correct answer is none of the above, because all of those things are retarded. You got to plan ahead, but you can't plan ahead during GO TIME there is too much shit going on! You got to do it in advance. You got to get ready, and I'll show you how.
Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.
Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
Ignore the hype. Find out how these games will likely go right or wrong.
