    Call me crazy, but does anyone else secretly wish for S to HTF? Like, some catastrophic event that forces us to fend for ourselves, band together with like-minded individuals, slay the zombies.....all that jazz...

    For example, winter of 2006 brought a major ice storm to my (and many other) area of residence. We were without power for a few days. People were worried about looting and break-ins.

    Now, other than the costly damage done to some people's houses, I LOVED IT!!!! I had to have a fire going at all time, candles were placed strategically, food was rationed, doors were locked, and a steady watch was kept.

    I'm not totally sure where I'm going with this, but I was just wondering if I'm out of my mind, or if there are others that share my same 'secret wish' of a zombie catastrophe, or something along those lines...

    I don't wish for calamity, but I would welcome a national "slap in the face" to wake the people up of some kind as it would bring us togather. I could understand what your saying though. I think that train of thought could be born out of not being able to find a reasonable solution to a problem. SHTF situations can be an opportunity for some but it is a disaster for others. At this point I have no solution to this senerio we are currently in, so I am preparing for myself and my family should something "go wrong". I'm afraid mostly that the people no longer have the ambition to defend this country, the constitution, or even their own families. I wish to be proven wrong!

    Self-reliance is great, but I agree, it takes teamwork to survive a real SHTF event.

    I have been in similar situations, ice storms, blizzards and hurricanes. I have to say I enjoyed the survival mindset. I don't know if I would say I want the s to htf but like Kinber said, I want the slap in the face to wake America up and if that's what I takes then fine. We have been preparing for it and if/when it happens I know our preparations along with the good Lord's grace we'll be ok.

    Are you kidding me? The only reason my friends and I went camping in Raccoon city every summer back in high school was because we were not-so-secretly hoping for a Zombie attack! We figured if it was gonna happen anywhere, Raccoon City seemed the place to go... :D

    Yes!!!!!!... i would love some type of calamity. not one that kills alot of people but a " nice " one would be good. maybe like solar flares knocking out our power grid for a couple weeks, or something of similar proportions:cool: americans wouldnt know what to do if we went into a dark age for a couple weeks. also it would help me figure out what else i need for my shtf bag, or what i dont need in it

    Nude Bomb. We have the tech, why not use it? I, for one, would brave a nude bomb attack proudly.

    Benning, why on earth have you not been made a mod yet?

    Um, dude, wishing for the zombies is one thing, but wishing to be at ground zero? That's not the most effective way to survive.

    Heading into a warzone is never the most effective survival technique, but sometimes the lives that can be saved outweigh the risks! I'm sure I'm more equipt to deal with Zombie attack than local law enforcement; I've been preparing for it for 20 years! (I'm currently 25.)

    Ok, I accept your premise. Next time I die in a Zombie attack, I'll buy you a drink.

    It may take some type of horrendous calamity to halt this Country's descent into socialism.

    If a shift in philosophy, a return to the Constitution and the roots of individual freedom could occur as a result, I would start praying for disaster.

    Indeed, I agree it takes team work and trust. I spent a lot of time with team members, in sh!thole places blending in, living with and training poor indigenous populations. Even though I would not trade my experiences for anything, they were the most extreme survivalist and dangerous situations I ever want to experience again, especially not in my own home countries backyard, but if SHTF or goes FUBAR here, I would be good to go. :cool:
