I never said I wouldn't collaborate with others, I just don't collaborate with the useless. Natural survivors and skilled individuals are always welcome in my company. Barring that, people with a sound mind, a strong back, and a willingness to help do the work.
You know, maybe 20 percent of America, the ones who wouldn't just flop over like a dying fish and wait for somebody to save them.
Oh, and nobody named Lori. My friends and I agreed on this as a term of our post-apocalyptic partnership.
If you're afraid of something or panicking about something, do something about it. Either find a way to fix it, or prepare for a way to cope
with it. Lamenting how useless you are if society falls down the shitter is useless, learning how to hunt and skin small game, basic first aid, water purification, and which local plants are safe to eat, is. Shit, even a 3 day bag with some food, water, important documents, etc, is a step in the right direction in case something unfortunate happens. The reason I don't panic is because I know I can roll out to any of several points in the county where I can get out into the wilderness and survive with a sleeping bag, a bow and arrow, and a few bottles of water.

The AR-15 is responsible for 95% of all deaths each year. The rest of the deaths are from obesity and drone strikes.
