    You'd probably increase the 16 year old male awareness of the need for a 72 hr bag...
    leave the gun... take the cannoli...

    In times of strength prepare for times of weakness...

    Yes: 11%
    No: 80%
    I'm preparing for it: 9%

    Apparently it is emergency preparedness week, at least here in Ontario, Canada anyways. It is so hard to get people to become prepared because their bubble's aren't breakable. Most, or 80%, just assume nothing bad will ever happen and if it does the gov't has your back!

    Thoughts?

    Two words..........Normalcy Bias......enough said.
