When will this apocalypse occur? Can’t they just dig up golf courses and grow spuds and carrots like we did in the war?

It's almost as if you have watched too many Mad Max movies and are willing the fun and games to begin. The pandemic as been a decent little taster before the main meal.

You weren't at Capitol Hill were you?

We just need a Morgan Freedman type character to lead the world from tip of absolute anniliation and make a speech about humanity never again committing the errors of the past to the survivors.

Either that or chimps that learn to speak.

I’m personally hoping for nuclear apocalypse, so I can live out my fantasy of real life Fallout 3. Old Anderson shelter down the road should do the same job as a vault.

I think the wife and I will be the old couple scavengers will find in bed with our brains all over the wall.

Just too much effort fighting tooth and nail to survive with no societal protection and mauraders everywhere.

Golf Boy will be on top of what is left of the tallest building pinging drives in to air with an automatic weapon ready to shoot undesirables as they come up to the roof.

But why would you want governments to stop people choosing what they want to do with the land they paid for. That would be socialism which is not tenable.

Difficult to tell when it will happen, but when the tipping point comes, they’ll be nothing we can do to stop it. Until that point we won’t do whatever might be necessary.

I read there is a French show called Collapse about that tipping point. Some event where chaos ensues and the government or governments are not able to put the cork back in the bottle. Supposedly individual stories showed from different perspectives... a supermarket worker, another working in a gas station etc..

That brings me back a few decades to when I studied the Tragedy of the Commons at university.

Yup, like the food bags clips I ordered for an apparent bargain, turning up on prime one day delivery 4 weeks later, and only one clip the deceptive bastards. Brilliant.
