    Pondering War of the Worlds 1938

    I dont think it would be possable to scare the populace like that again. There are way too many outlets of infromation for people to go to then there was back then. That being said, some people will belive anything, but for the most part, too many strings have to be pulled to decive the people now a days. I think that I'm more cynical than most, and don't believe what I see and hear on the news or even the inter webs. ROBIE

    Is Prepping Dead?

    It's not dead, but gone quiet. There are still prepping classes out where I live, but it's not as vocal anymore. I think the public eye is looking at other things this day, letting us get by with our lives. Seeing as how we are portrayed in the lame stream media (i.e. doomsday preppers, anti government militias etc.), who wants to put up with that? ROBIE

    One Second After

    I am so so sorry that I forgot to remind everyone that "One Year After" came out on the 15th.!!! It's all my fault. The good news is, its out now. Robie

    One Second After

    It is like you said, without F bombs and raunchy parts to add spice, some publishers and readers will pass them over. Rawles and maybe one or two others are good at keeping that stuff out or to a minimum. Also, anyone that has a military background or that wants to write accurately about the military will use a lot of cuss word, because that's how the military talks. I know this first hand! Sex, not so much, but the US military is one of the biggest providers of porn around the world. Some authors may want their hero to be a type of James Bond, and be very handy with the ladies. Not so much for the plots sake, but the ego mostly. And yes, I'll try my best to remind everyone about the book coming out on September 15th. Robie

    One Second After

    I'm bringing this topic back up because.... "One Year After" comes out September 15th. !!! and BTW, there is no sex in "One Second After", just that part already mentioned about them waking up in bed. "One Second After" is hands down my favorite book in the EMP/SHTF topics. a close second is the "Going Home" series by A. American. No sex, but lots of F bombs. There is another series by G. Michael Hopf, "The End" and its sequels. Its ok, but not as good, with plenty of F bombs. Robie

    RURR for "Bruce Lee"?

    As for someone who lives in the southern California desert, any rain we get from Nino is welcome!!! The downsides are, no it will not pull us fully from the drought, but will make a huge dent in it, but possibly worse will be what could happen to the recent burn areas. As you know, the west coast is burning all over from wild fires. The possibilities of mud slides and erosion could do a lot more damage. Where I live, flash flooding is always a threat when it rains. Still, bring the rain!!! Robie
  9. Sassenach, as of last night, they have ALMOST all power restored, but there still remains a small part still without power and the mayor of Long Beach is Pissed!!! They still have no idea why the underground vaults exploded or how to fix it other than replace the burnt parts and hope it works. Now as far as preparedness in the MSM, I agree with the WE2's. So long as they don't go full "doomsday prepper" or "redneck counter culture" I'm fine with it. Maybe, just maybe, someone will learn something from it. It could be that they have found a nitch audience. Maybe it's a slow news cycle and they need something to fill time and space with, so pander to the preppers. If it comes from FEMA or ready.gov, then that's their job, telling us to be ready, buy a kit and have a plan. Not so much as to make us mainstream preppers, but to help make things easier when something does happen. I think that's about as mainstream as it's going to get. People who prep and have food to last a year, more supplies than most third world countries will more likely be ignored or at the least find themselves on "Hoarders" Others who stockpile "beans bullets and band aids will be lumped in with the "Ruby Ridge" survivalist crowd. So will this article from the UK start people down the road to prepping? Not likely. It could be just one more peace of the puzzle for some. Robie
  10. Wild fires in so Cal is nothing new, but this one jumped a major freeway and set cars ablaze while people ran for their lives!! One news reporter said it looks like something from "The Walking Dead". I have family that lives their and they are getting ready to evacuate when told. A shelter has been opened up down the street from them, but they have family close by. I'll be keeping a close eye on this one! http://www.ijreview.com/2015/07/371381-graphic-video-shows-cars-set-ablaze-california-highway-occupants-remain-trapped/ Robie
  11. I heard on the radio that one civilian volunteer had to carry a bucket of water up 17 flights of stairs so an elderly lady could flush her toilet!! Time to get some preps in to high gear.... Robie
