Are You Ready For The Apocalpyse?

Is it just me, or is capitalism coming to an end? Depending on which side of the political spectrum you find yourself on, that could either be a good thing or a bad thing. Either way, we're in for some rocky times ahead (even rockier than we've been facing the past 8 years). So for today's open thread, I thought I'd ask how you're preparing for the apocalypse.

Me, I've gone to Costco to stock up on flour, rice, and canned goods. Oh yeah, and toilet paper. I want to have a clean ass when Jesus comes. What about you?

Toilet paper!! Good idea.

I don't think most Americans are going to feel this until next year...

I took out a bunch of cash and put it in my fire-proof security box at home with the passports. not that it will be worth anything. I suppose I should put in some matches so we can use it to light a fire.

and I'm hanging with my family.

Yeah, I just transferred a big chunk of my savings to ING. I figure the Dutch know a little about banking. It is how they became a naval power in the 1600's, and ING has been around since the 1700's.

Gotta have TP, Sara. Or I guess you could use your money to wipe your ass.

Adjusting the portfolio very slightly and preparing for Monday's 300 point gain in the Dow. The more I hear about the way the oversight is developing in congress, and the assets the government is acquiring at depressed prices, the happier I am about this. This will end up being a net gain to the treasury.

Maybe I should get a bidet if Jesus is coming.

I don't know about you all, but I'm not thinking capitalism's going to come to an end. We're too lazy to create a whole new form of government.

I'd have to have money to move around! I did take some money out of the ATM and put it in my wallet the other day. Does that count?

I live with a teenage girl. We're stocked on toilet paper. That's all I'm saying...

I am remodelling the my home using my last cheque from the bank. It's now or never on this project, I will be back and forth to Europe as it takes place so I will miss most of the dust and paint smell.

Of course, maybe the US Treasury dpartment will need banking attorneys to oversee the companies that they are aquiring.
