Two thoughts come to mind regarding this topic:
Why would a "prepper" go on TV and disclose they have all of this stuff? Counterintuitive since preppers want to survive and by publicly declaring they have the means to survive may actually put their survival in jeopardy (folks will come take their stuff).
When does "prepping" cross the line into phobia?
A phobia (from the Greek: φόβος, Phóbos, meaning "fear" or "morbid fear") is a type of anxiety disorder, usually defined as a persistent fear of an object or situation in which the sufferer commits to great lengths in avoiding, typically disproportional to the actual danger posed, often being recognized as irrational. In the event the phobia cannot be avoided entirely the sufferer will endure the situation or object with marked distress and significant interference in social or occupational activities.
I'm a mild prepper and often wonder where the line is between rational behavior and, well, CRAZY.
I'd love to watch this, however pretty much all of the HD channels this week "are temporarily unavailable" on time warner.
I'm going to see if I can make my payments temporarily unavailable as well.
Why are the HD channels unavailable?
Looking forward to watching it. FOod , water, guns and bullets are norm for survivalist.
Search is your friend here in the GNG Lounge, two threads from earlier this week...
Doomsday Preppers" coming to NatGeo
Sight of shotgun bandoleer means business.
Hows that saying go ? Everyone has a plan until they get shot at?
I was amazed before Y2K (basicly when I got "officially" into thinking further then snow storm, power failure stuff)
They would go on TV and show the $7k standby whole home generator, the shelves of food/supplies in basement. (it looked like a store) and how they were ready. Of course they didn't give address. But really. The outside of home, neighborhood, the family. So you know the state, community, type of house, what some other homes looked like, what the home owners, kids look like. (how easy to check out yearbooks, find kids, parents...)
What's the point of prepping for being doomed? I've never quite grasped that one. Being doomed implies finality. SHTF is another matter, though.
Cool, now there's three.
My guess is that the producers picked the prepper version of mall-ninjas, who will make fools of themselves on national tv...and make a joke out of those people who are smart enoug lh to prepare for hard times. I do not have very high expectations.
Just saw a preview on Nighline. They had the 300lb 5'6" with rifle (airsoft? maybe?) walking down CENTER OF OPEN AREA... Bad enough looking like that. But to do that (poorly) on nat TV.
I did notice that the one they (nighline) talked to is "in the business" of selling "prepper" equipment/supplies. So its his business. Exposure on nat TV= sales. (heck I checked his website) If he sells at those prices. He will have a bunker dug in remote area with TV lounge in a month.
