There are a lot of different scenarios that ordinary people can prepare themselves for. Anyone can gear up for weather related events, war, pandemics, economic collapse, and earthquakes. Learning the right skills, stocking up on food, tools, weapons, and precious metals, are all attainable for most people, and can insulate them from just about any scenario. But there’s one disaster that’s significantly more difficult to prepare for, and that’s an asteroid strike.
This type of disaster is so much more unpredictable, and the potential damage would dwarf anything that humans are capable of inflicting on themselves. It doesn’t even compare to the destructive capacity of a nuclear war. At least in that situation, there will be signs that tensions are rising between nuclear armed nations, and it’s feasible that you could leave major cities before disaster strikes. But with an asteroid, you probably wouldn’t know when or where it’s going to hit until it’s too late. And perhaps worst of all, this disaster is inevitable, which is what a leading astrophysicist recently told the Daily Mail:
Dr Alan Fitzsimmons has said it is a case of when an asteroid collision will happen, rather than if it will happen, with more asteroids being discovered every day.
An unexpected strike in today’s world could easily destroy a major city and a larger one could potentially wipe out humanity, the expert warned…‘…Over 1,800 potentially hazardous objects have been discovered so far, but there are many more waiting to be found.
‘Astronomers find Near-Earth Asteroids every day and most are harmless.’
‘But it is still possible the next Tunguska would take us by surprise, and although we are much better at finding larger asteroids, that does us no good if we are not prepared to do something about them’, he said.
And the destructive power that these objects are capable of would easily put the kibosh on our civilization for good.
From time to time they cross paths with us and, while impacts on the scale of the infamous 6.2-mile (10km) ‘dinosaur-destroyer’ are rare, an asteroid a fifth the size could spell disaster for civilisation.
With energy greater than 10 million Hiroshima bombs, the impact shock would flatten everything within a 186-mile (300km) radius.
Dust and debris would cause an ‘impact winter’ and most living things would perish.
Alternatively, an ocean strike would trigger monumental tsunamis, obliterate entire coastlines and inject seawater into the atmosphere, destroying huge swathes of the ozone layer and exposing survivors to devastating levels of UV radiation.
Asteroids pose the most humbling threat to our species. They remind us that despite how technologically advanced our species has become, we’re still at the mercy of our universe. These objects whizz by us on a regular basis, and there really isn’t anything we can do to stop it.
However, that doesn’t mean that as individuals, we are completely helpless. It may be luck that decides who survives the initial impact of an asteroid, but the skills you learn and the supplies you stock up on now will determine whether or not you survive the aftermath.

Best skill: “How to Barbecue your friends and neighbors” because you are going to need 5-10 years of food and nobody to bother you. Other than that it’s easy. When he last ELE took place 72,000 years ago no doubt all of us knew how.
I am a believer that an asteroid will hit the earth soon, in that we are entering an area of the system congested with large space objects: debris, junk ice rocks. Preparation is key however, the amount of supplies needed to survive an impact of 25 % destruct earth would require 100 years of a continuum resupply renewal approach at a minimum?? Yes SOME are preparing for this generational supply approach although, it will benefit the younger and the survivor oriented individuals. It might possibly be the end for most if not all of humanity. ALL depends on many factors but time is always the enemy ?/><
HP Lovecraft never graduated high school.
Hemingway never went to college.
They write better prose than anyone you know.
Read the Federalist Papers.
How much better did people write in 1800 than they do now?
Home school your fucking kids.
And make sure your kids are white.
Education has no effect on IQ.
The biggest threat by far right now are the millions of 80 IQ dark skinned people pouring over our borders every year.
Nothing else is more important than this.
Wrong place wrong time will suck with this one….
Need plenty of hot sauce, OLD BAY, and J-O crab seasoning. BTW, what wine would you have with that?
Depends on the age of both the wine and the dinner. Likely a good Red for they younger ones but a stiff brandy with the tough ones.
You boomers are pussies.
Captain Morgan goes with everything.
With a little Chianti. Ssst. Ssst.. Ssst.
You are 47 more times likely to be killed by a cop than a terrorist.
And the #1 reason for death. Hospital Infections. Thats why they call it prscticing medicine. They get to practice on you for shits and giggles.
But I don’t like Fava Beans.
Hmmmm…..,I rooted for planet killing asteroid last election,perhaps my request finally crossed thru!of course,would also have been happy with Cthulhu.
To those who are H.P. Lovecraft fans,this should be of imort to you!
Maybe there IS something to this. The Clinton crime family maybe disposed of bodies, by dumping them in space where they petrified. Now they are going to rain down on the Clinton estate. Hoorah!
I hope there is an asteroid with my name on it
We have no way of knowing if our probability of an asteroid/comet/whatever strike has increased/decreased/remained the same.
We just, in the last generation, acquired tools that allow us to count objects in the neighborhood that’s all. And it scares the crap out of some of us.
The scars on Mother Earth tell us it has happened before and likely will happen again.
If we see a big ‘un coming and we have enough lead time, maybe we can do something, maybe not.
Kind of low down on the worry list, right?
Call in Bruce Willis, Billy Bob Thorton and Ben Afleck. Liv Tyler was freaking HOT in that flick.
Oh, BTW, to be real cynical…
If the ‘Experts’ gin up enough fear on the subject, maybe somebody important in Govt. will rain some shekels down on them for more astro-research grants and more toys…

“Astrophysicist Warns Devastating Asteroid Impact Inevitable”
Really? Did we really need an astrophysicist to point this out for us? The God damned planet is covered with impact craters. I think it’s pretty obvious to anybody with an I.Q. higher than that of their cat that there will be another impact at some point in time……..
Oh, it’s coming and its name is Wormwood…it’s mentioned by name in The Bible.
Revelation 8:10-11 King James Version (KJV)
10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
Yeah, but that already happened, then the crater filled up with saltwater and now it is called the Gulf of Mexico and we use it for nude sailing.
Hey All, off topic but have you guys noticed a huge problem with the cell networks? Started like 3 weeks ago and getting worse by the day. I’m in the Hudson valley in NY. Problem is not isolated to my carrier. There was 1 article written on the 19th and bunch of sites posted it, but that’s it. Anybody have info of what’s going on?
Capt.,both cell and net been fine in the upper New England regions,did read a few articles about this though,when net AND cell go down,hit your starting buttons,if regular tv still works or car radio listen for reports but you are now in wheels up mode,car radio and regular tv also out,wheels up and opsec in overdrive.
Thanks Warchild, everybody in our area complaining about the service problems but no info on what’s causing. Frustrating and remarkably like the service we had in 1998… dropped calls, no service, static. Texts go through probably 70% of the time. ATT&T, Verizon, Nextel/Sprint all affected. Internet was down on Fathers Day for 10 hours. -Hale
Cell, internet suck in south tx.
The earth was formed from debris, dust, colliding asteroids, and the collision of another planet which caused debris around the young planet to coelesce into the moon.
Don’t worry about it. If it hits, and it’s as bad as the doomporn above said, it won’t matter what you stockpiled. Even if you dug your way down 1000 feet and had 10 years of food, what then? In 10 years, when you run out, you surface to the world from Snowpiercer and you get to be the last dead guy. You won the Human Race.
You are more likely to have Hemorrhoids, than get hit by asteroids. However both would be a pain in the ass.
If you are not familiar with the physical ‘Events’ of GOD’S Wrath Against “Wickedness/Immorality”/Time of Great Deception(http://biblehub.com/nlt/2_thessalonians/2.htm note vs 11), He has Warned us about, see “The Revelation of Christ which GOD gave Him to show…” Ch. 8 vs 2-5 = the Preamble to the Seven Trumpets, a.k.a, First Seven Plagues which we have been and continue to experience. The 7 Trumpets are mixed with Mercy Warning us that The Offer of GOD’S Salvation through Christ is about to close at the 7th Trumpet – then the 7 Last Bowls/Plagues fall on (without Mercy) the defiant wicked – “those that refused to love and accept the Truth that would Save them…” http://biblehub.com/kjv/revelation/8.htm….
Note the order of The ‘Events’ in The Preamble and then again with The Trumpets: 5And the angel took the censer, and filled it with Fire of The Altar, and Cast it – into – the Earth http://theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com/category/volcano-watch/volcano-unrest/, and there were Voices (some versions say “noises” or “sounds”) https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=sounds+heard+around+the+world, http://theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com/2014/07/06/a-mysterious-sound-is-driving-people-insane-its-spreading-and-nobody-knows-whats-causing-it/, and Thunderings and Lightings http://theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com/?s=lightning+, https://www.sott.net/article/318304-Update-Lightning-kills-64-in-Bangladesh-over-2-days-surge-in-deaths-is-causing-panic, https://student.societyforscience.org/article/earthquake-triggered-lightning, and an Earthquake (some versions say “Terrible Earthquake”).”
The next and last ‘Event’ GOD shows to take place in the Preamble which Signals that the beginning of the Great Tribulation/Time of Great Deception which we are Told “would deceive the very elect if that were possible” is about to begin. The Book of Revelation States there will be a total of four Global Earthquakes. (Revelation 8:5; 11:13; 11:19; 16:18). These Earthquakes will increasingly rip up the surface of the Earth, and the infrastructures of travel, communication and manufacturing will collapse during the Great Tribulation. These Earthquakes have no equal in recorded history. Each Earthquake will have greater strength than the one before it. The final Earthquake will be so violent that it will literally move all of the mountains and islands from their places. (Revelation 16:20; 6:14)
The First Four Trumpets –
And the seven angels which had the Seven Trumpets (a.k.a., First Seven Plagues) prepared themselves to sound.
7The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood (Mercy), and they were cast upon the Earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
8And the second angel sounded, and as it were a Great mountain burning with fire (asteroid?) was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; 9And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
10And the third angel sounded, and there fell a Great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters (second asteroid striking a continent?); 11And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
12And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise (volcanic activity due to the asteroid strikes?).
13And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a Loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the Earth by reason of the other voices of the Trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound…”
I always love it when people take my fellow astrophysicist’s stories and predictions as accurate.
This guy is guessing(aka “possible”) 1,800 because even in this 1,800; he has not mapped out the orbits of enough comets to come up with anything more than a probability.
In addition to that, he has not factored in that these comets have to go thru one or two of the solar systems asteroid belts depending on it’s orbit and let’s not forget they also have to get by Jupiter which is known to block off some asteroids from getting to earth.
Furthermore, he is not considering the size of our little galaxy and the odds on asteroids having orbits that will include the solar system and then hit earth right when earth is in the way; I’d bet the odds are less on each person in your family winning the lottery.
if earth is going to be taken out by a comet, it’s most like coming from one of the two asteroid belts and having one knocked out towards earth.
Here is a poor quality video that should be helpful to illustrate exactly how an “object” did in fact strike the original Earth and result in the creation of Earth’s largest mountains as well as the genuine origin of the moon. If you actually can watch this video, share it as much as possible. This information is highly censored but it needs to be highly viral….Thanks.
Dude needs more elementary school science classes to understand how mass and density affect moving objects.
