    Shade-it would be nice if you would give a hint what the link is to.

    The 5 First Symptoms of SHTF
    Symptom 1: More violence in your area
    Symptom 2: Group behavior changes, survival brings people closer and makes others less human
    Symptom 3: Dead streets
    Symptom 4: New leaders emerge
    Symptom 5: Nobody to trust anymore

    I don't know, the constant rattle and clink of tank treads from down the street?

    You pass out on the couch downstairs and when you wake up you notice your house is gone from above the basement.

    Everyone seems to be walking past your house like they have low blood sugar and then in unison they begin chasing some screaming guy.

    The test pattern on your tv is in Chinese.

    The new sheriff drives an 83 F150 and wears a wife beater with a desert eagle tucked in his camo pants.

    My DVR quits.

    When the dead body lying in the street is still there a week later.

    When all the trees, fences, and whatever else in the neighborhood that can burn is getting scarce, you will know its that time

    Interesting

    That was interesting. I think most of us think about SHTF as a sudden catastrophic event like the day after Katrina? It would be more difficult to recognize a slower decline.

    SHTF is a Urban Legend.

    It's fueled by merchants, who are selling out of all their

    rusty barbed wire, WW2 canteens and combloc gas-masks,

    sitting back at Martha's Vineyard, sipping maitais, and

    LAUGHING at us. TEOTWAWKI is just a scary bedtime story,

    designed to sell worthless crap for ten times it's value.


    In any event, if we had a real SHTF, I doubt it would be any

    kind of not obvious...

    When the stock market tanks and your money is worthless, that's when the SHTF.
