RE: The RVF worst-case-scenario survival/preparedness thread.
The only non-LARP option for surviving a catastrophic event is the ability to 1) travel to 2) a safe place.

Part 1 means: money, a passport, maybe the ability to speak multiple languages, few possessions (or the psychological attachment to few possession), and well-crafted possessions that give you utility and won't fall apart after two weeks of use.

Part 2 means: strategic location (which changes based on what catastrophic event you are talking about), and a place built to withstand the event and the people problem that comes after it.

Oh, and I forgot Part 3, which is mental toughness. Serious mental toughness.

Pretend an asteroid hit the Earth and strained resources to the point that we don't have the infrastructure for government anymore. No more police, no nothing. You have twenty minutes' notice right before the asteroid hits. You quickly get to your safe bunker under your ranch house in northern Idaho that I know everyone here owns.

Now there you are, alone. Or maybe cooped up with your parents and your sibling in this bunker. Or maybe with your girlfriend and your dad. Or some other random combination of someone close.

You are now like this for the foreseeable future. You think you're mentally strong enough to survive that?

Probably not. Maybe you even get through it physically, but mentally, who you are today will be dead after a year of that.

At some point you have to take a step back and think to yourself: If this doomsday scenario means me surviving pretty much by myself for basically an indefinite amount of time, with no pussy to get, no friends to talk to, no society to contribute to, no legacy to pass on, no people to be a part of, no culture to embody, nothing to do besides read the same few books and try to survive while you slowly get weaker, dumber, and worse at almost every other skill you've developed across your lifetime, aren't you dead anyway?
