Doomsday Data Preppers


While the Boy Scout Motto is, “Be Prepared” – and I was very serious about Scouting back in the day – I am always amused when I happen by NatGeo’s “Doomsday Preppers,” a show that “explores the lives of otherwise ordinary Americans who are preparing for the end of the world as we know it.” The show has lost its ratings mojo, but the Prepper movement seems to be going strong.

According to prepper website, Secrets of Survival, the Top 10 Biggest Threats to America are:

  1. Nuclear War
  2. World War III Starts with Invasion from Within
  3. Biological Agent / Deadly Highly Contagious Virus
  4. Dirty Bombs
  5. New Madrid Earthquake
  6. Yellowstone Supervolcano
  7. Comet Collision
  8. Asteroid Impact
  9. EMP
  10. Solar Flare

If this is what serious preppers are prepping for, I can say with certainty that they are missing the biggest, most obvious threat: Data Doomsday!
