  1. Just when you think you have some handle on basic survival problems you come across something like this.... Apophis ... a 50 million ton asteroid that is due for a near miss in 2029 and possibly a hit in 2036. Popular Science magazine has an article on line that goes into some detail on the chance of changing it's trajectory and where it might impact. http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov/apophis/ has an updated article on this. While it looks like this will prove to be a near miss, it does raise the issue of what would be the outcome of an impact. The Russian experience suggests even a relatively small rock can do some extensive damage and our present technology is not up to tracking everything. My personal thoughts are that there is little in the way of advance planning for this sort of WTSHTF event so it is better to focus on what one can do to mitigate the more likely events such as floods, hurricanes, tornadoes and ice/snow storms disrupting our lives. Oh let's not leave out government as a disruptive possibility..... Let us hope that the New Year is good to all of us and the Bad remains a possibility rather than a probability.
