Never did understand that movie. How could dirt be so valuable, when everyone was dirty as hell.

You wear what you find precious.

Bring your still. Money will be useless but alcohol you can disinfect, burn for heat, run an engine barter with and of course drink yourself right stupid.

Re: Prepping My Boat for the End of the World

rum and nubile breeding stock, coconuts and fishing poles... ok, sure, but --

when that day Barn's been pondering --for nearly ten years now-- comes (and, no doubt, it's coming...), Barn is gonna need some reason to want to get up each next morn...

... what would that be?

Nubile breeding stock is good for getting me up - morning, noon, and night.

Yes, the day after tomorrow.


God decided He was finally fed up with the human race and decided to end it for good. He called up a reporter at the New York Times to tell him the news: The world would ends the day after tomorrow.

The reporter tried to talk God out of it, but God was firm and wouldn't be swayed. The reporter then asked if he had an exclusive. God said that He was going to call four other news outlets.

Headlines the next day:
The New York Times: "God says world to end tomorrow; story and analysis on page B11."
The Wall Street Journal: "God says world to end tomorrow; market to close early"
USA Today: "IT'S OVER!"
The Washington Post: "God says world to end tomorrow; women and minorities hardest hit."
Fox News: “President Trump to Speak!"

Donald Trump speaks to America:
“Today is a very special day for all of us. Why ? I'll tell you. I have two good news to announce.
The first is that I am the messenger of God, he spoke to me in person.
The second good news is that within 24 hours, yes you've heard well, in 24 hours, the problem of unemployment will be solved, the financial crisis will be solved, there will be no more removals at the borders, no more cronyism, no more nepotism, no more violence, no more tax increases. I say what I do, and I do what I say. These promises will be kept!
Thank me.”

And Hillary came on TV and said, "Tomorrow, I'm getting even for 2016 !"
