This Was A Test. You Just Failed, Hard.

Bwahahaha! This is a beta test for our plans and preps. An eye opener for sure.

I have a hunting shack 90 miles south of lake superior. One room with a wood stove and an outhouse.
The thought of living in it for eternity is not very attractive.
Hopefully the boogaloo is not anytime soon.

This is a test and many people have failed. No savings to last a few months , no tenacity nor self control to stay indoors for a few months, can’t deal with the pressure of unknown, and can’t change when the situation calls for an immediate lifestyle adjustment. If this was a real shtf event a lot of the so called preppers would be dead by their own doing. Many also failed the moral test when they elect to throw their countrymen to the wolves just because they can’t stay the fuck home. Screw the old, the weak, and anybody else because I know better and it’s just a flu. So what, it’s just 3%, 10mil...fuck em. Even if you use 1.5%, it’s still 4.5m souls.

It’s time for some self reflection. This is a shtf cake walk, a surprise quiz. Don’t fuck up the final exam; it’s coming.

The problem is that they won't learn. When this is finished they'll go back to strutting about how well prepared they are.

Too bad there's no way to identify these people so we can discredit them later.

Once this all dies down (if?), yard sales are gonna be a treasure trove.

Well said.


When I worked as a Detroit high school teacher, my students who were always unprepared were told to shut up and fail quietly as my time was for those who wanted to learn.

Many of the comments directed at you, despite the authors being completely unprepared in their arguments, complained that you weren't "nice" to those with "opposing opinions" or that "Aesop can dish it out but can't take it."

I read your blog specifically for the entertaining fluency with which you tell the unprepared to show their work or shut up and fail quietly.

I didn't fail at all. I've lost power several times in the past 2 months, several times for more than a day. I have generators (plural) and stored fuel, but did not use them. It has been in the teens and 20's for most of the past 2 months. I didn't use my oil - I burned wood. I worked on improving my garden and defenses.

This isn't over - it's just beginning. The economic fallout of this is just starting. Minus 37 dollars for a barrel of oil? This is the beginning of the destruction of the petrodollar; the value of which (the dollar not the oil) will go to zero. This implies that the price of oil in dollars will go to infinity. With a worthless currency, you can't buy anything.
