After listening to a podcast of Kiss 108 I’m thinking I need to start hording food and finding a shelter to go to when shit starts to go down. My thought is that one person (who has a decent size house) could offer to be the shelter and the rest of us could bring supplies. I, of course, will bring bagels because that’s what I do…and cream cheese :duh:

Obviously in this shelter there will be swapping of wives in order to bear as many children as possible, I already call not being one of them :nana:

We’ll need animals such as sheep, cows and chickens, so if you have any please bring them. If any of you knows what to actually DO with them, please come as well.

Entertainment will be required since there will probably not be any internet, cable or cell phones. This means we’ll have to make sure to have people that can entertain us. Manly Man is great for entertainment but he’s a bit of a diva. I assume to get Mr. Fabulous there we will only have to offer topless days, which I think can be arranged. I’d invite Avitable but I don’t know what we could tempt him with…sheep?

Then the question is, since money won’t be worth anything and we’ll all have to bring something to the table to barter for other things, what can I offer? My camera won’t be any good and while I could write on paper I figure the paper won’t last forever. I have The Wonder Twins but I have a feeling they won’t be worth as much as time goes on and after flashing everyone 5,700 times it will lose it’s effect. How much do you think my wit and sarcasm will be worth? I’m hoping something.

I have memorized quite a few Kevin Spacey quotes, now that is entertainment.

So…what will you use for bartering?

    I shall bake the bread and care for the children. My coding abilities will be useless, but they’re pretty much useless now, anyway…

    I have dibs on bringing the chocolate chip cookies. And will happily take care of the germ infested toddlers if some else will please get all of the teenagers far far away from me. I can also wiggle my ears, will that help?

    You can come seek shelter over in my bed… I mean my house (yeah, that’s right, house) any time.

    I just learned how to make vegetarian Chinese chicken balls, so I could bring that.:) As for entertainment, can I bring our gaming systems? I’m sure an XBOX360 would be appreciated!

    I’ve got a design/architecture background and I’m kind of weirdly strong so I can help with the construction and building of the new facilities.

    I can also cook fairly decently

    Well, I’m sure one of our systems must be able to run on batteries. That or I could bring a generator.;)
