Which is exactly the point of the thread, good find!Now had it been a mile across? Point is, no one even knew it was coming, which is why everyone should have some sort of survival plan.But sadly, 95% of the nation has about 3 days of food and water, beyond that point, law and order will be but a distant memory.
This was far too small to have been noticed. Very large for a meteor, but too small to be classified as an asteroid. Some think it was more than a coincidence that it hit the same day the asteroid passed by. Some think it was a fragment of the asteroid.
Actually the true classification would be meteoroid, but imagine if it had collided with the big one passing by, there wouldn't have been any atmosphere to slow it and possibly cause the larger one to fragment.Thing is, no one is watching the little ones, regardless, we really don't know when the next big one is going to hit, and even if we did, could we really even do anything about it?Instead, we waste money on welfare programs, instead of setting up some kind of potential shield.
Despite the fact that my family might be early casualties, it almost seems like we need to be hit by a fairly large one. It would suck, but it also might knock some common sense into this world.
I usually get either ignored or yelled t for asking, but anybody know the potential of cat or dog?
Absolutely! Though the first meal won't go down easy, but if it fills the void, the second will be a welcome sight.I hope I never ever have to resort to bugs and squirrels .
HunterGatherer and I have a friend that makes squirrel stew, and I have had heard that rabbit is a great option. We have even considered raising them for meat.As for Krams comment about lobster, according to Alton Brown, they are closer in relation to cockroaches than fish, so there you go, bugs must taste good steamed with melted butter.

It is actually from a hole that was ignited be cause of a gas leak. It has been around for some time. Whoever made the video just threw that in for effect. I still don't know if they found the real crater form the Meteor. His is the link to the actual crater shown in the video.http://englishrussia.com/2008/03/25/darvaz-the-door-to-hell/

Sadly it's true, this global governance BS (UN) needs to go, and what better way to do it, than to knock us back a couple of hundred years technologically and population wise.I always felt I was born a couple of centuries to late, so it wouldn't bother me all that much.
I always feel I should have been born in 16th century Europe, that period fascinates me.I'm saving up to buy a good piece of real estate that is more like a mansion. The real estate where I live is very very economical due to it being rural and only nearby towns have population of 4500 max so I can afford huge lands. And my dream is to build a good family bunker with tons of supplies and make the house self suffiecient. There are plenty of game and fish, so I don't see food as a problem. The problem how I see it is that the government will send out officers to expropriate private food property in the name of the greater good of the state. The state will then ration in out in order to keep power just like the African Warlords uses food as weapon of control today. And this has happen before, the Soviet Union commisars and military expropriated food supplies from the population as a weapon of starvation and maintaining control. For this reason too I want a hidden bunker able to keep the family safe.Edit: And on the subject of taking it too the extreme, one of my collegues, she and her family have their own island that they have bought. Takes about 2 hours with boat to get too, and they have made it completely self suffecient for years with food supplies, fresh water, fishing supplies, gasoline and gas. Though of course they will not have electricity forever since it runs on a gasoline generator, but then again you don't need electricity too survive in that scenario.
