Realy, the what ifs have been in my head for a long time now, and most are scary/creepy. Now what I think life would be like when the SHTF is this: The oil price has gone up higher than ever and a gallon costs too much so the oil and gas companies go out of business, maybe not even that, but in effect the price of energy goes up, and combined with the amount of people loosing their homes forces most to leave their homes or the lucky ones that have their homes are without power. Or course somehow most of the big grocery stores and emporiums run out of money or something which causes them to close. With them closing, people are stuck with no food or shelter, many will somehow die of malnutrition or suicide or even decease that they didn't get a vaccine for. When the mass population decreases, the government tries to take control over everything but can't or doesn't have the people or even supplies to. Now at that point all the stores would be robbed and houses broken into. With that, people will realize that the shelter needed is their an will move back into houses. People who were in houses would either be taking the house apart and using wood to burn, and everything else for other uses like making weapons. After they move back in or even waaaay before, people may start forming small groups with family or friends. Forming in a sense, small tribes and villages. From here the story changes depending on things like the area an temperature and economical things. Most of this is from thought. Some from observation, and even more from dreams that I have been having. This is my "version" of an apocalypse sending us back to the stone age. Corrections? Disagreements? Dreams? Post them all. I would love to read them.
