I'm gonna' watch it. I'm always looking for ideas, although I have no plans for a bomb shelter. Now, a bunker, maybe.


Thanks for the heads up. I will schedule it on my DVR.

Every age has their bits from the Old Testement. If you lived in Spain during the inquisition, you may have felt the end was near. If you had lived in Virginia during the War of Norther Agression, you would have thought the same. Or maybe France in 1918, or Poland in 1941.

Every day is one day closer to your personal end, the interesting thing is we never know where we are on our journey. Maybe we should have mileposts.

Maybe we do have mileposts.

Can you say situational awareness?

It's that thing the Nanny-State refuses to teach its wards.

It's tonight if you want to watch. Although TLC does repeat some shows.

Screw it. I'm not wasting my time. If they're putting on douche bags who think the world's gonna end in 2012 from "all these prophecies" then that's crap and it mocks folks who are looking at legitimate, real goings-on who are taking intelligent steps to mitigate potential problems based on what's happening. The show should be about how prepping is beneficial when nothing goes wrong or when something does. But, as is so often the case, the media thinks it will attract more viewers with the extreme b.s. than with what normal folks are doing.

The media will do what the media does and their bias doesn't change fact. It looks worthwhile enough to watch and I'm always happy to learn something new.
