How to Prepare for the Apocalypse


Fri, Dec 21st, 2012 12:00 by capnasty NEWS

Andrew Carter of The Daily Beast provides this handy interview with doomsday specialist Robert Bast on how to be ready for the end of times.

Teven if no civilization-altering events occur on Dec. 21, it will not have been money wasted. "2012 is a great excuse to prepare for the worst," Bast says. "Any preparations you make will be good for future disasters that will likely occur (such as a killer flu pandemic)."

There's no shame in being prepared. If one wants to be ready for the apocalypse or some other disaster, it seems stockpiling is key. "The priorities are of course food and water. Bulk bottled water is very cheap and lasts years. Likewise tinned food and dry staples are long-lasting. If they are foods that you eat as part of your regular diet, then stocking up won't cost you an extra penny," Bast explains.

And survivors needn't go out and buy new houses, but if you are going to be riding out the apocalypse, Bast warns, "ideally you want somewhere high, inland, fertile, and away from people."
