Post-apocalypse from a dog’s view

Has anyone considered the idea of a BUGcapolypse. There are a lot of fucking bugs on this planet. What if they get smart and decide to take over?

Not that some bugs aren’t already smart. If you’re a smart bug reading this, no offense. Don’t band together and come after me yet. I need to build my mini-arsenal and practice shooting at tiny targets.

Designer chiu chih created this visionary ‘voyage on the planet’ project that imagines life on a planet with deteriorating air quality and a changed landscape.

Go here to see all the photos: chiu chih’s survival kit for the ever-changing planet.

 

Tear gas and pepper spray 101, from Occupy Oakland… | Tips for Radicals.

Tear gas and pepper spray 101, from Occupy Oakland Medic Collective. USA-centric, but still relevant to lots of other countries.

Tear gas and medical info for protesters, by Starhawk. Quite detailed, goes into respirators and stocking a protest first aid kit.

Who should avoid tear gas, by the Black Cross Health Collective. Contains useful health warnings, and also a bit more on remedies.

I think it’s interesting that one of these links is from Starhawk . Some comments on the original thread I grabbed this from dismissed the suggestion of Rescue Remedy. For anyone who doesn’t know what Rescue Remedy is, it’s a homeopathic blend of diluted Impatiens, Star of Bethlehem, Cherry Plum, Rock Rose, and Clematis . These flowers are thought to have “vibrational energies” that are useful for when people need calming or have had a shock to their system, both physically and emotionally.  Personally, I’m not a huge believer in homeopathy but I know people who swear by Rescue Remedy and always have some on hand.

Well, as Joss Whedon says, “Half of writing history is hiding the truth”.

 

I have no idea who came up with this idea. If you know, let me know so I can credit.

Neil deGrasse Tyson on end-of-world prophecies

My Prepping Partner For Life knows someone who straight up believes all of this to be absolutely true. I’m ridiculously altruistic and naive ,so “they” could be herding us all into these  internment death camps and I would convince myself  we were being given membership to an exclusive community established to be a government experiment on sustainable communities.

The scary thing of course is that if you listen to George Green, you can imagine that it could be true, especially if you exist in part of society that seems to be under class warfare right now. For example, there IS enough food in the world to end world hunger. Those who control the financial & political pictures simply are preventing it from happening.

If all of what George Green says is true,it would be like some of the most terrifying dystopian science fiction coming to fruition. For my sanity’s sake, we’ll file this under conspiracy theory and nothing more than that.

Now,excuse me while I go find a unicorn.
