So, I decided after much thinking that I should really get this written down. If the world (as we know it) is going to be ending, I’d love it to be in an awesome way. Zombies, aliens from another planet or even giant roboats. Yes, that was a brilliant typo. Giant rowing boats. Anyways.
Rumours that the Earth’s oil supply will be entirely depleted within the next 5 years are spreading like AIDS in a small African village. This means no fuel. No travel. With the UK supposedly importing 90% of its food, I think it’s safe to say that we all either become farmers or we all starve to death. Assuming that we all do embrace self sufficiency we then have to look at government control.
As money will probably become useless and goods for goods trading allot more popular, we would expect the governments hold on the tax payer to become very slack. People will be starving to death, have no jobs and therefore be really bloody bored, so we’re going to be seeing allot of break ins, fighting and maybe even killings (Cannibals count as zombies; get that gun!).
Villages are probably to be avoided the really small ones anyways. They’re most likely to go backwards first, disease will be less monitored/treated so they’re just going to be giant infection towns.
I toyed with the idea of stealing some horses and becoming a breeder. Their foals will grow up in the next few years and let’s face it, horse riding is WAY cooler than riding a rusty bicycle. If you’re in dire need of food i suppose you could eat a horse. To be honest i would rather eat grass.
Fortify your homes, get some huge dogs, and buy some guns, ammo and a rocket launcher. Stock up on canned food, bottled water and custard and you’re good to go.
Don’t forget. When disease becomes an issue (as in its turning people into mindless dopes) don’t forget the paracetamol, water and those guns. Kill count #1
