Something like this would turn into The Postman where a group of shitheads banded together in a mob to kill/steal shite from everyone else. ..even if you were prepared, you would be overwhelmed by the horde.


Exactly, which is why I would be the most ruthless person you could ever imagine and find likeminded people.

Americans today are truly spoiled idiots...I remember when our power went out for an extended period after Hurricane Ike. After about a week, you realize you simply adjusted what you do; ate dinner at the table by candlelight, even got out more talking with neighbors at night. You even start to just accept the heat...



I bet most people don't even have the old kerosene lamps our grandparents had standard in their homes.

It would quickly turn into a survive-by-any-means-necessary mentality.

I'd imagine a large portion of southerners would be uncomfortable but ok as the majority of the population of the region are raised in a hunter's lifestyle.



The large populations in the south would be a problem. People who live in places like Roger would probably fare the best. They know how to survive in cold and warm. People from cold climates could easily adapt to warm, people from warm climates die when the snow hits the ground.

Because they last much longer than batteries.

Couldn't agree more, hell I feel like I could die in southern Louisiana during the winter, I'd be severely fricked up north.

Being prepared for a SHTF scenario isn't stockpiling goods, it's living in lightly populated areas where natural food is plentiful. Those who stockpile goods are just doing it for other people.

I'm fine in cold weather.

My problem is having to chop shitloads of firewood for the rest of my family that is not.

The horde mentality would occur everywhere; not just in highly populated areas.

I wouldn't be surprised if I joined the horde merely for the factors of food, water, & safety. I'm sure the vast majority would have the same mentality.

There are places like the Yukon which is plentiful with wild game a man could still keep to himself.

The shite is never going to hit the way you guys are describing. Do you think we are just going to run out of all resources one day?

Probably the only way it would happen is a global disaster like a meteor strike or world wide nuclear war.

see, I think I would seek to raise an army, to inspire the vagrant men to some purpose.

I think men seek leaders in times of crisis, someone to make decisions where most mere mortals would not dare.

Someone to hate, yet at the same time respect.

I really enjoyed "The Postman"
