I have a fascination with Doomsday scenarios! I love conspiracy theories and last year discovered Doomsday Preppers on the National Geographic channel.  It is a show that has taught-me the importance of stockpiling food, building a bug-out shelter, and developing my own private museum of weapons.

It was inevitable that when National Geographic appeared in my inbox this afternoon with the preview of  Season  2 Doomsday Preppers that I had to visit the web site. I discovered the Doomsday Prepper Quiz!

I confess I failed  miserably with 19/100 the only saving grace was that I am a weekend camper.  It estimated that I would only survive 1-2 weeks before meeting my inevitable demise!
The only tip it gave me:

Weapons are an excellent equalizer against threats to your security. One gun is a start, but two guns with a thousand rounds for each person is ideal. Standardizing your weapons to all use a basic ammo type (like .22 Caliber) simplifies ammo storage and reloading.

I guess it assumed that I would need security but it failed to realize the biggest threat to me is my clumsiness. I can see my demise by shooting myself in the foot and then suffering through some horrible infection which included gangrene. So when the time comes I just hope one of my friends has been secretly stockpiling food and will share their bug-out shelter with me.

Have you ever watched Doomsday Preppers? And do you have a bug-out shelter?

I'm trapped at the suburban carnival and I can't get out! One day I'm the trapeze artist, the next the clown, and on the bad days the carnie!
