Guns, Gas Masks And War Bunkers: The Families Who Live In Fear Of The Apocalypse


Post-apocalyptic worlds may exist on the big screen and in sci-fi novels, but that's where the similarities between a disaster-ravaged planet and daily life in America end.

Or so you may think.

A new TLC show introduces us to the families who live in fear of the apocalypse, convinced by the inevitability of the end of the world as they know it.......

But far from admitting defeat, the programme instead focuses on their preparations for life after destruction. Livin' for the Apocalypse follows four families who are not only predicting the apocalypse but preparing for its arrival. The measures that they are taking now, are they believe, the key to their survival if economic collapse, doomsday predictions, natural disasters, alien invasion, meteor strikes or zombie viruses ever take grip of planet earth........

From guns to gas masks and fresh fish, the one-hour special programme says that preparations for the apocalypse are a growing trend in the U.S. as more and more families ready themselves for a life beyond civilisation......


  1. The sheep like to use the phrase "living in fear" a lot.

  2. apart from the article...the sales of high end "bunkers" are sure doing well, and being sold to some very high up connected people. funny, rich or poor, what'ya know beyond civillisation..or simply life independent.

  3. Preppers of the world unite!

    Those that believe that societies/economies/countries never crash are very bad history students.

    I rather have my guns, silver, dry food stocks, meds and waters reserves JUST IN CASE than NOT have em.

    Let the next couple of years prove who's right or wrong not just name calling.

    Good luck to all.

  4. Here is a link to a similar show on National Geographic channel:

  5. No matter what happens, man cannot live by bread alone.

  6. @2:08pm true but God also helps those that help themselves...Soooooo with that in mind why wait for someone's good graces to save me instead of stocking up?

    Ideology/Theology are great conversations to have with a glass of good Cabernet...But if there is an emergency say massive tornados, floods, earthquakes, sunamis, hurricanes, nuclear plant meltdown isn't better to be prepped a lil?

    What those things I mentioned don't happen...Errrrm all of them have happened in the last year...Or should I wait for FEMA or God to send me a crow with food? (Elijah reference for you Non-Catholics).


Everyone is encouraged to participate with civilized comments.
