Checking Back in with the Mayans
So with the hustle and bustle of the season, you may have forgotten about the whole Mayan prophecy thing. Well, it’s almost here, so it’s a good time to check back in.
The idea of an approaching cataclysm is troubling folk from Moscow to France, and the US to Brazil. The New York Times has reported that some spooked Russians have been panic-buying matches, fuel and sugar to prepare for the post-apocalypse. And they are not alone. A poll by Ipsos recently found that one in seven people believe the world will end during their lifetime (or, presumably, just after it). The same poll suggests that one in 10 people have experienced fear and/or anxiety about the upcoming event.
Even a NASA scientist has taken the time to personally debunk the doomsday theories. You can watch that here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bi36AC0Lfu0
Although we here at the Foodstoragereviewer don’t believe the world will end on December 21st, we think it’s a great time to consider preparing for everyday emergencies. Start with a little food, then get a good water filter. Over time, and with diligent preparation, you won’t have to worry every time someone comes up with the latest doomsday prophecy.
