With the government on shut down, my roommates are going extreme and freaking out.

My roommates are wanting to stock up on non perishable items, I have no problem with that since that is a good idea in general.

They also want to buy bottled water, just encase. Huh, why? Is it that serious?

One of my roommates dads think a civil war is going to break out, hmm okay I really don't see this happening. But um if it did how do you survive it? Or better yet where do you go and how do you protect yourself?

People are definitely angry, but civil war is a big stretch.

We have a plan. Lots of land, food stock, know how to grow & survive off the land. I don't want it to happen but we would survive.

Yeah this shut down has me nervous too. That many people suddenly out of a job can't be a good thing... I see chaos ensuing.
