90 Seconds to Doomsday
90 seconds left on the doomsday clock. If there’s ever a time to prepare for the worst it’s now. One of the big questions to ask first is how does it happen?
These are the most likely causes. (in my opinion).
- nuclear war
- natural disasters
- climate change
- AI takeover
(Natural disasters and climate change are separated because I feel like climate change in this case isn’t a natural disaster, it’s man made, but again that’s just my opinion.)
Surviving doomsday is a daunting task. However, with proper planning and preparation, it is possible to increase your chances of survival.
First and foremost, decide on whether or not you want to be in a post apocalyptic world. If not, goodbye.
Secondly, although you probably won’t do it you lazy fucks, it would be wise to have a plan in place. The easiest first step is to have a stockpile of canned food and water, or anything that lasts years. There’ll be no more UberEats when the world ends. If you can, have some way of purifying water such as filters or purifying tablets. In fact you should probably create a list of all the essential items and supplies you’ll need to survive. So medicine and sleeping bags would be handy too.
It’s also important to identify safe locations where you can go in case of emergency, and to have a means of communication with friends and family.
Shelter is also a crucial consideration in the event of a doomsday scenario. It’s important to have a safe and secure location that can protect you from the elements and any potential dangers. This might include a underground bunker or a sturdy, well-constructed home. If you don’t have access to a bunker or safe house, it’s important to have a plan for creating a makeshift shelter, such as using tarps or other materials to create a temporary structure. In the event of a nuclear blast and your far away enough to survive the initial blast, immediately find the nearest cellar or room that’s underground. Stay there for a few days, if you leave any sooner, you’ll die painfully from radiation poisoning.
If you’re lucky enough to be around Switzerland during a nuclear war, you’re in luck. I hear there’s around 360, 000 bunkers over there, so I’m sure there’ll be some space for you if you ask nicely.
Another important aspect of survival is having the right tools and equipment. This might include things like a first aid kit, a flashlight, a fire starter, and other items that can help you to survive in a wilderness or post-apocalyptic environment.
It’s also important to have a means of self-defence in case of lawlessness and chaos. This might include weapons like a handgun or rifle, as well as other tools that can be used for self-defence such as pepper spray or a stun gun.
In addition to physical preparations, it’s also important to have a strong mental and emotional state. Doomsday scenarios can be incredibly stressful and traumatic, and it’s important to have strategies in place to cope with the emotional fallout. This might include things like meditation, journaling, or talking to a friend if any are alive.
Another important aspect of survival is having a community or network of people that you can rely on. This might include family members, friends, or even strangers that you meet along the way. Having a support system can help you to survive both physically and emotionally, as you will have people to share resources with, help you in case of emergencies and to provide emotional support. But keep in mind that almost everyone has seen apocalyptic films and people stabbing each other in the back, so never let your guard down. People can be unpredictable in extreme situations.
Overall, surviving doomsday is a challenging task, but with proper planning and preparation, it is possible to increase your chances of survival. The key is to be prepared and to stay calm and level-headed in the face of adversity. Remember that a positive attitude, a well-stocked survival kit, and a solid support system are all crucial components of survival in a doomsday scenario.
