PO sucks arse!
When I started looking into PO and learned what was going on, I sort of just sat on the road and watched them big bright lights get closer, then I kind of ran around in small tight circles yelling "fuck,fuck,fuck", now I just watch adverts for plasma screen tv's and hugh motor vehicles with bemusement. Im currently trying to work out things I should probably be starting to hoard, and wondering where I can get a firearm and when I should get one.
Amen, but don't forget to hoard things like a clued in circle of friends, good neighbors, and useful knowledge.
That said, this seems an interesting exercise -- compare the price of a random big screen plasma TV with some "Post Peak" items that might come in handy. Using US dollars, August, 2005.
Samsung 40" LCD HDTV (LN-R408D) -- $3999.99
Could instead buy:
Storable food for two, year supply -- $1200
Gasoline, 100 Gallons -- $270
Store of long lived food seeds -- $230
Weapons and/or Ammunition -- $800
100 ounces spending silver -- $800
Extra survival Gear -- $699.99
Less time spent watching TV means more time spent raising awareness for Peak Oil, and thus potentially eliminating the need for the survivalist gear.
