Power grid goes down and it's mad max in less than a week..those that have supplies and electricity are targeted first..

Yep, dangerous humans would be a big risk if you get past the first part of the disaster.

Yes.  But for me, if it's an easy thing to prepare for, I'm OK doing that.  Some things are outside my reasonable ability to prepare for, though, as you say.

Oh I have land outside the city and a cabin.  Guns, a couple of crates of MRE, rainwater catchment, generators.

I'm willing to wait out a temporary interruption of civilization.  If it was going to be permanent Mad Max, I'd just as soon eat a bullet.  Some games aren't worth the candle.

I always have an argument with a friend who is obsessed about humans getting off the planet incase of a planet killer collision scenario.  Moon bases, Mars bases.  I'd rather set up a lawn chair and a pitcher of margaritas.  I have no desire to live out my last decades in a tin can. 

Toxic, psychotic, self-aggrandizing drama queens simply aren't worth me spending my time on.

:aok

The standard deposit insurance amount is $250,000 per depositor, per insured bank, for each account ownership category. The FDIC insures deposits that a person holds in one insured bank separately from any deposits that the person owns in another separately chartered insured bank.

Due to all of the money I've pillaged over the years from poor souls like Sparky, I've had to go this route.  Most of us evil Capitalists do.     

Most of banks and monetary institutions are not keeping their promises. As a retired evil capitalist, I will make a monetary promise, which holds in all circumstances: Send all your money to my safe account to be stored secure way. I promise you will never see a one single dime, but I promise to send you nice pics of my purchases.

Those interested can ask account number via p.m.

I like that, too.  That's what Musk and Bezos are both working toward.

It could be done such that living on the Moon or Mars, or even in a space colony, could be pleasant and good.

I'd love to see mankind spread out into space and to other planets and moons.

My wife would rather join the zombies than set out on foot only with what we can carry.
Here we put salt on Margaritas, not sidewalks.

Iíll be on a sailboat large enough for a reverse osmosis water maker.   
Then sail to Australia and enter the last Grands Prix held on the planet.   
Iíve never lived further than a couple of miles from a marina or airfield.

On the beach is an excellent, but depressing, film.

That film is a classic. 

It became a classic when they decided it didn't need to have a fake happy ending.

One of the rare films that was as good as the book.  I have no idea how they got the film of San Francisco, deserted.
