I have an idea for a new, prize-winning, TV Reality show. The need is certainly dire. "Dirt Dynasty" and "Game Of Dregs" seem to be fading.
"Snack Spotters!" perhaps would be the title. A bright group of "Big Bang Theory" watchers will get together every week; go out for a stroll through any neighborhood; and point out, for our joint amusement the groups of individuals - who will be the first to die, WTSHTF.
"Zombie Snacks", is how I think of them; and spotting Snacks is not a pastime I would have chosen; it's simply grown to be an inescapable compulsion. I can't help myself.
"Wow. No skills or talents of any kind, beyond Twitter. Non-survivors, for sure."
One would rate the various discoveries, based on the estimates of survival times. "Not gonna last a week." will quickly by trumped by "I give these guys about 2 hours."
Then there's the "Five minutes. If they're lucky." That would apparently be the entire Minneapolis suburb of Anoka; where a local petty thief, with no brains of his own, hit the same houses, over and over- finding that the doors remain unlocked and welcoming; no matter how often the cops had been called.
After 30 attempted robberies, though; the Anoka cops finally managed this difficult capture.
So I'm guessing, WTSHTF, Anoka is going to be "harvested", top to bottom, in a few hours, cops and all. So you can mark that area as "Vacant" on your TEOTWAWKI maps.
