I am going to post this thread and attempt to attach a poll with it to try an figure out if my husband is crazy or not. There's not much of any backstory to this, but my husband has been buying and storing water, canned goods, batteries, matches and other necessities down in our basement for the past 6 months. I asked if this was for the Zombie Apocolypse or something (always said jokingly). He admitted that while he doesn't necessarily believe the world will end on December 21st, or that zombies will take over, he does believe that something awful may happen (think back to Y2K panic). He wants us to all be prepared if some awful catstrophe happens. I personally think this is crazy. I'm wondering if anyone else is doing this (or will even admit to doing this). He is very intelligent so this kind of thinking seems very irrational to me. We have enough canned ravioli to open a food pantry at this point. Please someone tell me that we aren't the only family preparing for the end of the world. (I shouldn't even use the word "family" since he is the only one doing this). ...attempting poll now. Sorry if it doesn't work. EDIT: My option 2 was too long so apparently it didn't post the poll.
