Well obviously, we've been prepping (planning the entire thing ) for years.

I give the real life SHTF situation about 72hrs before we find out who the villains really are.

Yep.

And the only drawback to having a generator is that a brightly lit house among the dark ones is also something the FSA goblins desire.

There's trees down the entire 300 foot length of my driveway, so I'd cross it with chains and lock them. If someone wants to say hi, they're going to have to come on foot.

"To add on to that, NASA is reporting comet Ison (eye sun=illuminati, look at your paper money)..is coming in very close contact with the sun which could possibly emit comet debris to earth and/or solar flares and EMP's, but we also can consider that the govts could use any of that as a cover up. Just look into it, it's not conspiracy, it's highly possible truth."

Do you already own enough chain? Have you already purchased the locks? If not, I'd say you're behind the curve, smitty.

Much of the film's narrative revolves around a variety of survivors documenting the blackout, and their rapidly deteriorating situations, on their cell phones and flip cams. There is a young, affluent couple in a New York City penthouse who only have credit cards and electric can openers; a teen vlogger left to his own devices while his mom works at a hospital; a little girl in the suburbs with a pregnant mom; a trio of college students stuck in their dorm's elevator after the end of the academic year; and the pre-teen son of a prepper family, who has escaped with his parents and sister's boyfriend to their "bug out" compound.

/snip/

Scott Aaronson, Senior Director of National Security Policy at Edison Electric Institute added that cyber is relatively new as a critical infrastructure -- which moderator Matthew L. Wald of The New York Times said made it the "glass jaw of American life" -- but that his industry is working hard on risk management. As a result, Hayden added that security experts have a challenging time articulating the extent of a cyber-threat. Hayden also said he was "fearful," not of aggressive nation states launching a cyber-attack of the scale shown in the movie, but of those that come from "disaffected individuals with undefined, unsatisfiable demands."

All of these ideas are reinforced in American Blackout through factoids occasionally flashed on screen. They send a clear message: Many of the systems we rely on daily are out of date and vulnerable if the grid goes down. Elevators and traffic lights have little-to-no back-up power. Our food supply chain, and fuel supply, can be easily interrupted. Something as simple as clean water, or the lack thereof, might lead to escalating violence between neighbors. Plus -- be it cause by Mother Nature or humans -- most Americans just aren't prepared to deal with even a small-scale interruption in services, much less a larger disaster that interrupts power.

Any decent water systems will have diesel back up generators to run well and booster pumps, Some systems are straight gravity supply. We have Diesel back up and a 16MW Hydroelectric plant that can run isolated to provide power to main well stations if the grid goes down.

Water systems worked just fine well before electricity.

Of course I do. This is a semi-rural area, chain is used for many things, including pulling stumps or pulling down dead trees. Everyone here is well and septic and all that, we'd do fine.

I hope its not like their episode of "what happens if all gasoline production suddenly halted"

6 months later:
Brazil highways are still packed
American Highways are nigh empty, save for the savy few who invested in electric cars
Blah blah blah government is keeping everyone alive, stay with the government. Only blue states fair well.

I swear it will be more bull*hit, still gonna watch if it doesn't interrupt walking dead.

This is true as long as you have gravity or willing to hump your water supply to where you need it. FSA ain't got no time fo dat.

thats pretty funny.

psychiatrists call this, "projection"

Liberals can't live without everything delivered to them by magic but they are pussies so they figure they will starve or be prayed upon by evil conservatives who also don't know how to survive and therefore will violently take over.

no dumb fucks, conservatives will generally be fine and self sufficient.
It ain't the red neck militias you need to fear.

but liberals can't talk about that.

some say zombies.

they say red necks.

both are talking about the same thing. and they ain't red necks and zombies.

With the prices they want, not many. More likely to be a cheap CRKT they got at Wal-Mart, or a kitchen knife.
