Default Potential TEOTWAKI/SHTF Scenarios


TEOTWAKI – The End Of The World As We Know It
SHTF – Shit Hits The Fan

Books, TV Shows and movies deal with this.

How fragile is the current first world model?

And, on a personal level TEOWAKI or SHTF can be an individual, family or community ordeal. (Hurricane Katrina, etc)

Which of the Ten listed causes would be most likely?

Does anyone take the possibility of 'Un firing a high nuclear burst over California to cause an EMP seriously?

TEOWAKI – The End Of The World As We Know It
So shouldn't it be TEOTWAWKI?

Wrong TEOTWAWKI. Shikiro Johannes Teotwawki directed the highly acclaimed release of Godzilla versus Alien, with technical advise from former California Governor Ahnold Shwartznegger.
