I ran across this today while doing some research, and thought I should share.
"Some people believe that we are hurling towards physical disaster with our delicate electrical grid. Just how that disaster might occur is open for debate, but we need only look at major power outages over the last few years to see how precarious our grasp on electricity is. It isn’t a matter of “if” the lights will go out, but a matter of “when”."http://www.shtfplan.com/emergency-preparedness/what-will-you-do-when-the-lights-go-out_11302012

This is the first time I've seen this video. Not sure if any of you have, but thought I would share it. Very interesting. The video looks five years old, but I wonder where this stands today.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vuBo4E77ZXo

What do you think will cause the end of life as we know it? I'm interested in seeing if there is a large majority of our members on the same page, or do we all have different ideas of our future end.. Maybe this will also bring up ideas or discussions not thought of... Thank you all for participating.
I know its possible for more than one to be the cause. example, a sun event could be followed by war. So when answering please choose the initial event that starts the downward spiral.

Not sure if this topic has been researched, so please fill free to move this if necessary. There will be few things available to mankind once the crud hits the fan. Most likely wood/trees will be the only thing beneficial and easy to come by. I'm hoping to stir the intelligence combined by the members of this site and come up with creative ways to use wood to help make our lives more comfortable. To kick it off I'll start with sharing the information I found on a travel stove. Would be light weight and make cooking/boiling water easier. I look forward to the ideas you all can come up with... Again, if this has already been discussed please point me in the right direction. Thanks..http://bushcraftusa.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6270

Has anyone done any research on walkie talkies? I've read there are two types FRS and GMRS. I'm wanting to have something for communication with my family when and after the SHTF. I'd like to be able to scout/forage outside my home after "the event" and be able to still communicate with my family held up in the house. Example: If we were to run out of water, there is a river about 1/2 a mile from my house. there are several houses and trees between the two and no straight line of view. I'd like to be able to take a communication device and leave one at home to allow constant communication. Also I'm sure half of my neighbor hood will not be prepared, so they will either pass away or try to travel to a larger city seeking help. This would leave multiple houses with possible supplies waiting for the taking. Having a communication device would be great for someone to keep a watchful eye while another is searching a home.
I've read you have to have a license for GMRS. Would GMRS even work if there was a power outage? Could someone in range of my home hear our communication on another walkie talkie. If so, is it worth the risk? The below link is a 2012 review of some popular walkie talkies. The one which came in first seems very affordable, but will the features even be useful once the shtf? I hope to purchase 2-4 in the next month. Any input/suggestions will be appreciated.

Not sure if this has been done yet, but it would be great if we had a list of recent TV shows and Movies that deal with events that cause a global catastrophe. I've loved these types of movies ever since I watched the original Planet of the Apes. Some of these movies/shows can give some great ideas. I'm just wondering if there are any out there that I haven't seen yet. I will start the list off with a few. Some of you might not agree with some choices, but I feel everyone has their own genre...
1.Walking Dead (TV Show)
2.The Colony (TV Show)
3. 2012 (Movie)

– NASA shut down its Buzz Internet Forum almost immediately after someone posted a recalculated trajectory for Elenin at only 0.004 AU (that’s less than 40,000 miles from Earth) as opposed to the official claim of 20 million miles or more.April, 2011
- SETI shuts down their Allen Telescope Array, placed into “hibernation.” (The SETI Institute was founded in 1984, the year following the supposed discovery of Planet X and operates one of the only arrays of this kind.)July 21, 2011

Once the population starts to die off. there will be dead bodies all over the place. We won't be able to burn them all.. SO, does anyone know how long a body would have to be dead before mosquitoes quit snacking on them? I'm wondering the mosquitoes will contract deases from the dead, and pass it along to us when they bite us? Maybe a stupid question, but makes me want to stack up on mosquito spray even more, at least until someone tells me otherwise!!

The Colony is a reality television series that is produced by the Discovery Channel. The program follows a group of people who might survive in a post-apocalyptic environment.http://dsc.discovery.com/tv/colony/
I've watched the BBC series and the US series. Both were very good. You can get a lot of ideas from the show.

I currently own a mossberg 500 12g shotgun. I'm thinking I'll need something for long range. My dilemma is I'm spending most of my money to stock up on food and other small things, so I need to get something affordable. Should I go with a rifle, or handgun. I know rifles can be cheap compared to handguns. Would a 22 rifle even be worth buying? I saw one at Walmart the other day for 129.00!
Or, should I buy what ever has the cheapest ammo?

I'm currently building a Faraday cage for my laptop and smart phone along with a few other things. I was wondering what kind of ideas everyone could come up with in regards to computer programs and phone apps that might help us survive after the crap hits the fan. I have a couple of ideas that I will share later. I just wanted to see first if anyone shares the same. Thanks in advance for any input..

This poll can benefit those who find it hard to come up with the money for preparation. The first step is the most important when moving forward. When it comes to survival, there is no room for mistakes...

Not sure where to place this query, but has anyone thought about placing a News Ticker on the site with up-to-date news about Elenin, etc? Would be great to be able to read it, and find out everything here, instead of searching the net for the latest. The news in the ticker could also point to topics already created. Just an idea. Thanks.

We have images from stereo B. Not all that great, but still something. Has anyone created a timeline recently? I'd like to have some predictions to work with the new data in regards to the size of the coma. Is it possible Elenin will he become more visible sooner than expected?
If Elenin was so close to stereo B, why did it appear so small in the images. I expected something a little closer. If it is an ELE, do you think the government will ever leak any info?
Destiny comes to those who listen, and fate finds the rest.
So learn what you can learn, do what you can do, and never give up hope!
