Right now (Wed. 8pm) there is a show on the History Channel called Apocalypse Man. Featuring skills and survival techniques. I am sure they will re air this program.

Looks interesting and informative.

Ha! Luck is with me . . . I just looked on my guide and it's on in an hour, so I'm recording it. I'll probably watch it tomorrow after work.

Yeah this week is a special on the end of days or whatever you want to call it. If you miss a program, they will replay it again at least 2 more times later that night. Some good info for survival noobs.:)

Most of it was sorta common sense stuff, some of it was encouraging folks to think outside the box.

The neatest thing I picked up out of it was the steel wool/9-volt fire starter. Neat trick!

I finally got to see Apocalypse Man today. It was pretty good. That trick with the steel wool was cool, I agree.

I also liked the homemade grappling hook. Unfortunately for me, I suck at knots.

Don't let that discourage you, there are endless e-books on knotting methods.

I've been meaning to learn. The worse part is that I used to be in the Navy. So you'd think I'd know a thing or two about knot tying. But the square knot and clove hitch are about as far as I got.

I have a little knot tying reference card somewhere. I just have to find that little bugger before the apocalypse hits.

Does anyone else have this same observation as me? It seems like in the past couple years there have been so many doom and gloom shows, I could try to list them all, but it would take hours.

I always question what I see on T.V. because it is, I believe, one of the greatest weapons ever released on mankind and when I see a constant theme being played, I try to think if there is a M.O. behind it.

Fear has always been used as a pacifier of the masses to make them feel insecure and it seems like everytime I turn on History, Discovery, ect... they are always showing TEOTWAWKI shows. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy watching them and most of the shows deal with things I've know about for years, so it's not new news for me. I knew about the 2012 scenarios 10 years ago and thought there might be something to it and something serious to consider , but now with everyone talking about it and it being on History Channel 10 times a day, I think its a big joke now and just pumping fear or are they trying to desensitize us, or both?

...... After Armageddon was on HIST last night. It was not bad at all.
Watched it last night. Pretty good but IMHO they waited way too long to BO and obviously had no planning or preps for doing it. Maybe that was the intention? :scratch

I agree that they waited to long to BO......the producers and writers may have setit up that way. If you BO and are safe you probably would not be hit with the scenarios that the family found themselves in.

In general I thought After Armageddon was pretty good but I did find it odd that three members of the same family were immune to the bug. :dunno:
