I would guess if all the power went out, and the gasoline supply dried up, we'd lose 2/3 of the population inside a year.
Wouldn't that just be terrible?

But seriously, I feel fairly confident I would be just fine without electricity, gasoline, running water, etc. In fact, I go through that scenario several times a year... granted it's not an extended period of time, but still it's not the worst thing that could happen.

Growing up in the mountains, you learn a thing or two about surviving in the wild from a young age.

I agree that a decent number would be able to fend for themselves. But then there are others who only know how to fend by taking from others, and that is where the population loss occurs.

Not saying I could survive forever, but simply have a lifestyle and values that wouldn't suffer as badly if the power structure fell out. And agree, a loss of electricity and gas isn't the worst case, and preparing for the worst makes the normal "tough things" easy.

- I was a movie critic for two years.
- I wrote a movie screenplay that was/is being passed around Hollywood (as far as I know, nothing has been made of it).
- Because of my size and athleticism, I was scouted for Football at the age of 10.
- I scored a 26 on my ACTs, and I fell asleep half way through.
- I stopped two of my friends from committing suicide.
- I saved my parent's marriage.
- I have lost 140 pounds, and saved years of my lfie.
- I have survived 22 surgeries, and an advanced immune deficency.
- I have never drank, never smoke, never done drugs and I am still a virgin (20 years old).



I hate bragging. I feel like a ****** now.

Most of us don't consider what I bolded as bragging.

Lucky, I'm a pastor and I've done two of those things you didn't. Still a virgin and never did drugs.

That's something to be proud of, along with everything else you mentioned. So good job

In the generation I am in, with the way society is, I do. I have had temptations, but have stayed true to who I am for the sake of respect for myself and whoever I am with. I consider it somethign worth bragging over. I'm sorry if you feel otherwise, I do not.

I was raised with Christian roots (although I am a strict agnostic), I still hold my Mother's teachings in good faith, and feel that (sex) should be shared with someone worth of sharing it with. At this moment, I have found no one.


Drugs came easy, seeing as my immune system cannot handle drugs, nor do I want to blow ridiculous amounts of money on something that will essentially kill me.
