My husband works at a facility that cans fruits and vegetables. They have a monthly meeting where they discuss everything from safety issues to production numbers. At this month's meeting, it was noted that the order rates by the different stores they distribute to are on a slow but steady rise. Stores are already seeing an increase in the numbers of non-perishable items that are being purchased. The plant manager also told the employees to expect those rates to increase dramatically in 2011 and 2012, in anticipation for what is sure to be all out craziness as people "prepare" for 12/21/12. So this got me thinking.
I've always been fascinated with any kind of movie or documentary which talks about "end of the world" scenarios. Everything from nuclear war to disease to aliens to zombies. For the record, I absolutely ♥ zombies but don't see it as a realistic event. Although if the zombies do attack, the FB quiz I took last month says I'm 95% likely to survive and rebuild...just sayin' lol! Personally, I think we are more likely to have a catastrophic weather event or disease wipe out a huge chunk of the population. I can totally see either of those things happening, but I don't buy that it can be predicted, and definitely not pinpointed to a specific date. I don't believe the book of Revelation will come to pass and I'm not quite sure how I feel about the Mayan calendar except that I definitely think aliens were involved...but that's a whole other topic. Sooo....
1) Do you believe in the "Apocalypse" as is being talked about happening in the year 2012?
2) Are you preparing for it, or for any other form of "end of the world as we know it" scenario?
3) Do you ♥ zombies as much as I do?
I answered #1 above.
We're preparing for 2012, but only because I don't want to be stuck with no food when the shelves get wiped out because a lot of other people really think it's gonna happen. I do think there will be food shortages in 2012, but only because of panic.
I ♥ zombies a lot and would make an excellent slayer. My FB quiz told me so....
