In a year as crazy as 2020 has been, many “conspiracy theorists” and preppers alike claim to have seen signs of the coming Apocalypse. Here are five of the weirdest ways people are preparing for Doomsday!
- Gourmet Apocalypse Food
Just cause the world is ending, that doesn’t have to mean SpaghettiOs and MRE’s. A company called PrepareWise will prepare gourmet meals for your survival shelter that a guaranteed to have a 25-year shelf life.
- Laser Eye Surgery
Some in the tech crowd feel that come the Apocalypse it might be a tad hard to get a new pair of glasses, especially if your original is damaged escaping a demon horde or other disaster of biblical proportions. So, they are opting for laser corrective eye surgery, now, while such procedures are still available. Recently, Steven Huffman, the CEO of a little website called Reddit, made waves when he revealed that his chief motive for getting laser vision correction surgery was to prepare for the apocalypse.
- An Entire Country Impervious to Nuclear Attack
Most of us are shit out of luck in the face of a nuclear attack; the best we can hope for is being taken out in the first wave and not have to face packs of radiation crazed, cannibalistic survivors. Not so if you live in Switzerland. Unlike other countries that might find themselves on the receiving end of nuclear weapons, Switzerland has the capacity to place its entire population in a series of fallout shelters constructed at great expense by the government. This Swiss constitution requires that every private building constructed has a fallout shelter capable of supporting every resident.
The concept of seasteading has taken off over the last couple of years. The basic idea is to use either a derelict oceangoing vessel or an offshore oil rig as a foundation to build an artificial island. The artificial island would be located in international waters and would technically not be under the control of any one government. On these islands, or “seasteads,” a dedicated doomsday prepper with enough money could very easily make themselves comfortable during the impending apocalypse.
- Stocking up on Zombie Ammo
Any prepper worth his salt will tell you that bullets will be a commodity more valuable than gold in the coming apocalypse. However, one ammo maker has taken that concept one step further by selling a very specific type of ammo for a very specific type of apocalypse – Zombie Ammo! However, rather than go through a long research and development process of finding just the right caliber and ballistics to take out the undead, the marketing geniuses Hornaday Ammo definitely decided the best course of action was to take the ammunition they currently manufacture and just put it in a box with a picture of a zombie on it, and label it “Zombie Max Ammo.”
