5 Scary SHTF Scenarios!



When you read through these, actually imagine yourself being stuck in that situation.  It would totally suck.  There is nothing cool about the following scenarios except for the fact that you may have to use some cool weapons.  If only you had an Alien Blaster right? Seriously though, if you were to experience one of these situations, and survived, you would most likely be diagnosed with going crazy because they are absolutely scary!

Martial Law
This happens in all parts of the world and lately it has been taking place a lot more than ever. The post 9/11 world is all about security and it seems like law enforcement and the military can be a bigger threat to our rights than we previously thought. Local police departments are becoming more militarized so we have to be a lot more cautious about that. But law enforcement and military personnel are people too. So now we have to decide...on which side are we on? Or is it possible to remain neutral? We respect the social contract between citizen and government, including the 2nd Amendment...but maybe being on the NRA membership roster isn’t the best idea though eh?

Nuclear War
Some argue that the Cold War has never really been over.  The threat has always been there regardless of what governments have said.  At some point in the past there was a major push towards nuclear disarmament but regardless of those efforts, nuclear weapons are still being developed. There are even more countries now that have access to them.  Let’s hope that one of these ruthless regimes don’t get too playful with a nuclear warhead.  Can anyone say North Korea? 

Artificial Intelligence
Remember "The Terminator"? This situation would definitely suck.  The machines that once helped humanity reach a higher standard of living can eventually be the death of us.  In addition to that, imagine Siri wanting to be your girlfriend? Scary.  That didn’t stop Joaquin Phoenix in the movie “Her” though…then again it was Scarlett Johansson’s voice…

Zombie Apocalypse
Seeing a body re-animate would be an incredibly horrific site! Many people now argue that this is totally in the realm of becoming a possible situation because of scientists messing with genes and viruses.  The scientific community is also warning that bacteria are becoming more resistant to our current arsenal of antibiotics.  Maybe we are slowly mutating into zombies…and one day, it is going to explode.

Alien Invasion
This is in our opinion a very scary scenario.  Aside from the walking dead, unfriendly aliens is an extremely frightening thought.  Think about it, these beings probably will look creepy to begin with and they would definitely have the ability to destroy us…easily.  They would be so technologically advanced it would be almost impossible to match their power.  That is unless they die on their own from some bacteria that humanity is immune to or water is like acid to them like in the movie "Signs".  The point is that we would rather not ever meet an alien unless it was a sexy shapeshifter.

So there you go folks.  You have just read our list of 5 scary as hell SHTF scenarios that would be a total bummer if you were stuck in one.  Let’s hope you never have to experience any of the above.  But if you do, remember this list and don’t say you weren’t warned.

6 Weird but Very Interesting Urban Survival Tips!

6 Weird but Very Interesting Urban Survival Tips!

We have heard of many interesting tips that you can utilize if you are in a post–apocalyptic world, but these just top the list.  They are not in any specific order because they are all just very unique (the last two however are something else…very unique).  Enjoy!

1.    Instead of carrying a typical bug-out-bag or survival backpack, carry your supplies in a guitar case.  Who would suspect that you have supplies in there?  If anything, people aka raiders will probably have pity on you and not try to steal your items.  Just hope they don’t ask you to play them a song.

2.    Even if you don’t smoke cigarettes, carry a pack with you in your survival kit. Why?  Because you can easily barter with them and you can use them to establish friendly relationships.  We recommend that you not smoke cigarettes because they actually decrease your level of energy and stamina but hey, to each their own.

3.    Did you know that you can use a regular crayon like a candle?  A crayon will burn for about half an hour! Just stand it up and light the tip as if it were a normal candle.   That baby will burn for a while and give you the light you need to write your last love letter to your sweetheart.  Okay, that was morbid, but hey…you gotta let em know how much you love them before the zombies get you.


4.    Stock up on acid reducers like pepto bismol or tums.  In post-apocalyptia, water and food will most likely be highly contaminated and so upset stomachs will be a common thing.  Make sure to carry at least one bottle and a couple of pills so that you can pick yourself up or trade them with folks that need to go #2 bad…really bad.

5.    Got condoms handy? They can be quite useful.  For one, they make great water storage containers.  Believe it or not but they can hold a lot of water.  They also make good fire starters.  A latex condom will burn efficiently.  In addition to that, we read somewhere that somebody once used a condom to make a slingshot.  Who knows.  Try it out and tell us about it!

 6.    Tampons can also save your life.  Yes….tampons.  There are several uses for a tampon.  One of the most obvious is the cotton that can be used as tinder to help you start a warm fire.  Also, if it comes with a plastic wrapper, that can be used as a fishing bobber if you leave an air bubble inside and tie it. We have also heard that you can use the plastic applicator with cotton stuffed inside as a filtering straw. Crazy.

So there it is.  These weird but very interesting urban survival tips and tricks can possibly save your life one day.  Hope you don’t ever have to try any of these things but nonetheless, good to know.  So don’t be frustrated if all you have on you are condoms and tampons…they apparently can be very useful in a sticky situation.
