12-12-12. T Minus 9 days and counting till TEOTWAWKI

I’m watching the 12-12-12 benefit concertRoger Daltry of The Who looks to be about 100 years old.  But the music still rocks – without a doubt.

Nine days till  <<THE END>>.  Here’s what the hedgehog sees as he peeks above the rim of his burrow:

Over a half  million family farms threatened by Obama’s new death tax.

Large “Ball of Light” crashes in Sweden.

More on the mystery orb:  UFO recovery team dispatched.

Obama plans direct talks with Iran.

Iran admits exporting drones to Chavez

Next 9-11:  Iranian death squads are here.

Teotwawki: T Minus 10 days

(((Polar shift to occur in 10 days)))

The polar shift theory encompasses everything we’ve ever considered to be a disaster — all rolled into one mega disaster, as predicted by the Mayans.  Earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, drastic temperature changes, you name it.  When north rapidly becomes south, and south rapidly becomes north, everything changes. 

So, there you have it.  December 21, 2012, ten days left, and counting.

Other disaster scenarios, partial scenarios, and just plain old bad stuff:

Three months to live

Writing a blog post generally begins with an idea, followed by a quick run-through, getting as much down as I can without losing the original inspiration.  After that, a quick edit or three, and finishing touches of a photo, then a title.

Today, I began with the title first.  Now I’m trying to backfill with a post.

Today is Friday, September 21, 2012.

Today, there are 46 days till Election Day.

Today, according to the Mayan calendar, we’ve got three months to live.

Today, Mississippi State is making final preparations to raise their record to 4-0 against another Sunbelt Conference opponent.

Today, if the Mayans are correct, the December 20, 2012 football polls will have Mississippi State ranked #1, and scheduled to face a Big-12 opponent, probably Oklahoma, in the BCS National Championship Game.


This is the World Famous Friday Open Thread, End of the World edition.

WFFOT:  And I feel fine.

Shutting down the web

I saw most of the pilot episode of a new series last night on AMC.  The promo had this tagline:  “Not every conspiracy is a theory.”
That’s pretty good.  Right up there with, “Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not all out to get you.”

Last night, Swampie asked if there were any back up plans in the event we were censored by the Gub’mint.  I hadn’t really thought much about it, even though I had read about the Feds shutting down some 73,000 WP blogs. Then, I find out later that were shut down by the FBI, who said they were being “used by al-Qaeda operatives to distribute recruiting materials and to offer bomb-making tips.” Dang.

Sounds like a good reason to shut down the bad guys to me. But, all 73,000? The words ‘heavy handed’ come to mind. Hopefully the bloggers not involved will get their digs back soon. But, I guess that’s why I wasn’t too concerned about this kind of scenario. Being hosted on wordpress.com gives a sense of security and safety from malicious attacks, and, it would be hard to imagine the Feds shutting down all the hundreds of thousands of WP.com blogs just because of some bad actors.

And then I read this story, and I changed my mind.

This is it, folks. This is the end of the internet as we know it (TEOTIAWKI).

Seriously.

Hard to believe there isn’t a conspiracy here someplace.

Hate to leave you on a sad note, so here’s a riddle that might put a smile on your face …

TSHTF open

Zevon style.

Silver buyers

Thinking about putting away some silver coinage in your savings?

I ran across this site recently.

Franklin Half-Dollars for $8.49, which is about 15% over today’s $18.62 spot price from Kitco.

[by wt, 12.5 g = 0.440924 oz of junk silver (90%) = 0.396846 oz pure silver]

A tough day, a tough trend

Argentina didn’t take too kindly to CIA Director Leon Panetta’s warning about economic instability in South America …

Argentina’s foreign ministry summoned the US ambassador to Buenos Aires “to explain the lamentable statements” made by Panetta earlier this week, describing them as “unacceptable interference” in its affairs.

No wonder.  Argentina didn’t fare well in the last big downturn.

As the market continues its decidedly negative trend, I was reminded of an old article about Argentina after the tech-bubble crash of ’01.  TSHTF became much more than a “what if” proposition.  Here is an excerpt.

OK, If I had to do all this from scratch? Say, for example, if I had a 2 year warning, fairy godmother appears one night , all dressed in blue waving a magic wand, saying “ Your country will go down the sewage in 2 years, consider yourself warned dear”
There are several things I would have done differently, and things I would have bought:
Food: I’ll get to the food issue soon enough, but you can never have too much canned, or other long shelf life food. This was probably one of my greatest mistakes, I overlooked the food problem.
I was talking to my wife today while driving, asked her the same question Nomad asked me “what would you do if you could go back in time, before the 2001 crisis”.
My wife, though smart, isn’t much into preparedness, but she answered “I’d buy food” in a heartbeat.
“ Don’t you remember that you could only buy one small bottle of oil at a time, same with sugar, flour and milk. Don’t you remember all those empty shelves at the supermarket.?”
Definitely, more food, specially food that lasts for a few years.
CAR: I would have bought a 4×4, even though I live in the city. A 4×4 allows you to dive over the sidewalk or through wasteland, away from roadblocks or riots. I’ve see those that have 4x4s simply go off road, climb over a boulevard and leave while the rest of us poor car owners have to stay.
A 4×4 truck also has more mass and power in case that someone tries to cut you off or rams you with the car. It’s less likely to stop running if you hit someone or several people (in a riot situation) since it’s prepared for cross country use and the engine is much more protected.
Fuel containers: Not only jerry cans, but those big metal containers, that hook up like small “u-hauls” ? I’m not sure about their capacity, maybe they can hold one or two barrels of gas. I saw them at construction sites, and they were not that expensive if bought used, before the 2001 crisis. Now , I don’t know. Haven’t seen them for a while.
A generator: These are imported and very expensive for us. I think that they are now making them here, but I’m not sure about the quality.
A nice TV and DVD player:

Good places are too expensive, and just going out for a walk at night with your wife/girlfriend is out of the question. All of a sudden popcorn , pizza and a movie sounds like a good plan.
I’m not saying that you should spend all day in front of the screen like a zombie. Reading is nice, I love reading myself, but once the SHTF, going out with a date at night wont be that easy, nor will it be that cheap. You will end up paying for that added security the shop/bar/theater owner hired, the higher price of gas and food, while a DVD copy can be found everywhere, and costs only a couple of bucks. After the SHTF there will be a lot of “why don’t we watch a movie” nights. Like it or not TV is cheep, safe entertainment. A play station or xbox is also nice to have.
Even if the country collapses, there will always be a guy with a DVD writer making copies. Just something to think about if you like movies.
BOOKS: Oh, almost forgot. If you like reading a lot, buy books now, even if you wont read them for some time. If your economy crashes, paper will become a source of income for many. We have thousands of scavengers collecting cardboard and paper all day long, specially at night when people take out the trash. As a result, books are not cheap, because they have a value of its own in the form of paper.
Also, consider that books are heavy, making transportation expensive and many are printed abroad.
Just as an example: I returned from visiting my parents in Spain with three suitcases. ONE suit case was entirely full of books. Books cost about 80%-200% more than what they cost in USA or Spain.
Guns & ammo: I always liked guns, so I always had weapons. But I didn’t have an adequate survival battery. If you don’t have a good survival selection of weapons, buy them now, or as soon as your budget allows. Make it one of your priorities, just after food, water and shelter.
