If the end of the world really
coming, what can you do to survive 2012?
Well, if you believe that the
of the world means the destruction of the planet, there’s not a lot
do, we’re all gonna die. If
we get hit
by another planet, there won’t be anything left.
On the other hand, if we get

Most of the prophecies say that
it will be the end of the world as we
know it. That’s
still a very
nebulous description, but it does infer that while there may be massive
and destruction, some will survive the devastation.
Those most likely to survive
the ones who are prepared to.
The three basic requirements
survival are food, water, and shelter.
Depending on what happens, food
may be the hardest to come by. It
far the most perishable of the three resources needed for survival. Those who have food will
be in a position to
not only survive, but to decide their own fate.
Those who know how to acquire or raise
their own food, will have the
leverage to make choices for others, and trade for other things beyond
Water is a little less of an
issue, if you are prepared. The
is two thirds water, but most of that water is undrinkable. Water sources can be
found, and the water
can easily be treated to make it drinkable, if you have the
right materials and knowledge. Clean
drinkable water will
be worth its
weight in gold, if you have it.
Shelter is the last of the
requirements for survival. We
assume that the end of the world as we know it, also means that current
will be unusable, unless it is specifically made to withstand natural
such as earthquakes and violent storms.
Having such a shelter ready and supplied
will give any survivors a huge
advantage over those who are unprepared, but still survived.
If you have any or all of the
three requirements for surviving, you will need a way to protect them
those who do not. If
a simple power
outage is enough to cause riots and looting, what will happen after
we know is gone?
