Hmm,another doomsday article on MSN Money.... I give up some of you think the world will end tomorrow good luck...
I've been hearing about the collapse of society for decades now, first it was atomic war, or some virus, now it's collapse of... Something is always going to destroy, oh my I give on this doomsday crap.
Without Knowledge we have nothing,what is gold going to do? is that food or shelter? hello??
and Gems, are they going to turn into something that grows? wake up...this is just a hoax to get people who are really dependant to jump. So if your neighbor says jump ,,,,are you going to?
This is great comical reading......
How about hoarding knowledge? Learn survival skills, like how to eat and treat illness and injury using what's available in nature. How to build shelter and use solar power. How to protect the real estate you have, and how to work together instead of against eachother. We always keep both pantries stocked with dry and canned goods, along with water and other bottled drinks, and first aid supplies and basic meds. I have horses and I know how to do basic vet care and trim their hooves. If we don't have vehicles, I can get around. I taught my daughter the same skills. The gems and gold may have usefulness if one needs to trade them for something, but there is truth to the words "knowledge is power".
Well if the mayan calendar is right and I were a mayan I might want to worry but if this turns out to be the real thing, then you might want to ask yourself, "am I going to be able to get a chance to use all this stuff"...
Naturally if the government fails and there is no order or law, then the only law will be that of the jungle and the biggest, smartest and toughest will be the top predator, gangs will rove the land and sickness and disease will come from starvation, poor water supply and lack of energy....
Merry Christmas to all and I hope you make it thru this coming tax season....
