Sometimes, it happens that events create, or are likely to create, shortages in commodities which are, or are perceived to be, important to people e.g. petrol food and water. In these circumstances do you rush out and buy to stockpile or do you just stick to your usual routine?
I try to keep 2 months supply of food in the house, and 3 months supply of water at all times.
So usually, no – I don’t stockpile on demand, I do it consistently – part of the old boy scout motto – be prepared.
I am a sceptic OM.
I don’t think any human consciousness alone, without the aid of advanced technology, is capable of stepping in front of cars and not being affected by it.
I can do some quite amazing stuff so far as many people are concerned, and I seem to understand the broad principles involved (even if the detail is vastly too much to handle).
So my advice is to actually take a little more conscious concern about long term high impact low probability events; not to get anxious or paranoid, and just to take reasonable preparations as opportunities present themselves.
