Doomsday Prepper Experts
Thanks to Prepper Website for sending a link to his post about who the DP experts are. You can read it here. The experts are Engineer775 and Southern Prepper1. They are two well known survival YouTubers who have organized prepper conferences in North Carolina, and were featured in the pilot episode of DP last year. When they were on, DP actually didn't make them look nuts. On Prepper Website, he links to one of their You Tubes where he talks about their roles on the show. Listening to the explanation "from the horse's mouth" makes it more understandable They have little impact in the show's direction, but try to do what they can to counsel the producers. I still say it would make the show more credible to let the viewer know who they are. Of course, I also want the producers to not edit so the people look foolish.
My niece introduced me to a really fun iPhone app game that preppers will enjoy... Stupid Zombies. And best of all... it's free! You go through stages where zombies are on platforms and behind barricades, and you are the guy in the corner with a rifle. The challenge is to shoot the zombies, using ricochets, rolling barrels and exploding 55 gallon drums. It is a very unproductive use of your time, but lots of fun.
Terrorism in D.C.
No, I don't mean Congress usurping our Liberty... Did you hear about the Moroccan immigrant arrested for plotting to detonate a suicide vest outside the Capitol building yesterday? According to the FBI, he had been brainstorming ways to do an attack for over a year and after he conducted surveillance and planning, undercover agents, posing as al-Queda representatives, provided him with a inoperable gun and suicide bomb vest. Now, when I hear stories like this, I always wonder how much instigating the FBI did as agents provocateur, but in this case it seems to be a good bust that took a dangerous terrorist wannabe off the streets.
