The Twelve Days of (Christmas) the Mayan Apocalypse (2)Posted: December 10, 2012
Since the world is ending in two weeks, I thought we should get started with our planning for what comes afterward. I’m not sure what will happen on December 21, so I’m going to offer up a number of scenarios to help you be prepared for whatever comes our way. Please join in and comment. It’s only fun if you play along. If you’d like to start at the beginning, click here.
Day 2: Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, Who’s the Tastiest of Them All?
The day after the governments of the world collapse, you find yourself in New York City. (Why you would be in such a godforsaken place I don’t know, but assume you’re there.) The news outlets, sans the dead political journalists, pounce on the alien virus story and won’t let up. Every man, woman, and child in the world knows the planet is rudderless.
What does every grocer and grocery truck delivery driver do? They pack up everything they can haul and take off into the night, headed somewhere secluded where they can wait out the carnage.
When the sun rises and people wake up to find the grocery stores empty, carnage ensues. Men bash each other viciously over the last remaining grocery items.
By 9:00 am you can’t find a can of soup or beans in the city. There are no animals to hunt in New York City, but there is a whole lot of protein walking around on two legs. You can’t walk twenty feet without bumping into a two day supply of food carrying a Gucci bag or a briefcase.
The question isn’t whether you’ll eat people or not, because eventually you’ll eat people or starve. The question becomes, which people will taste best?
Will you like fat people, skinny people, or people who workout?
Would you rather eat men or women?
Will people of different ethnicities taste differently?
What about you? Do you look like you’d be tasty? Would you have to learn to run fast and maybe not shower very much so people wouldn’t eat you?
You’ll need something to do in the post-civilized world, so order one of my books while Amazon’s servers are still up and UPS is still delivering! Your money won’t be worth anything on December 22nd, so spend it while you can.
