    Discovery Channel Preparing for Doomsday With 'Apocalypse Preppers' (Exclusive)
    1:13 PM PDT 10/7/2013 by Kimberly Nordyke

    The network is premiering a new special focusing on people who employ survival strategies based on three different theories.

    The network is debuting a new special, titled Apocalypse Preppers, which takes a look at the "mind-boggling ways" that people are preparing for the end of the world -- which some see as a foregone conclusion, and not just a possibility.
    Specifically, the program will put the spotlight on those people who employ survival strategies based on three different eschatological theories:

    -- The Black Plague: A disease of healthy people, the dreaded Black Plague once wiped out a third of Europe’s population in the 1340s. Some fear this rapidly fatal illness will not only spread naturally but that it will be used as intentional "biological warfare." Between infected flea bites, skin turning black and open sores, this disease progresses aggressively within a quick 72-hour time frame. Some people plan on resorting to a medieval way of life to avoid a societal breakdown, as most believe antibiotics won’t be enough.

    -- Alien Invasion: Some believe that if aliens have the capacity to reach us, they will have the means to destroy us. Between UFO sightings and recent communication between Earth and other planets, the existence of extraterrestrial beings is gradually becoming more acceptable. Viewers will even see the extreme methods preppers engage in to modify their appearances in hopes of confusing the enemy.

    -- Robot Rebellion: Some believers think we will be the masters of our own demise once robots prove to surpass the intelligence of humans. They’ll have minds of their own, making 30 to 40 percent of decisions without human control. What they won’t possess, however, is human judgment or the ability to distinguish an enemy from a comrade. Some people are planning to defend against robots by going back to basics with homemade weapons and hideaway fortresses.

    Apocalypse Preppers is set to air at 9 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 17.
    I'm pretty sure shows like this are a sophisticated form of disinformation designed to keep the masses entertained and clueless.

    "Tonight at nine: why anyone who has more than three cans of beans in their pantry should be institutionalized because they're clearly white supremacists who are planning to take up arms against the federal government...."
    Bask in the warmth of the Deep South
    No one will be denied:
    Big law suits and bathroom toots;
    We're all getting Dixie-fried.
    But somewhere Hank and Lefty
    Are rollin' in their graves
    While kudzu vines grow over signs that read "Jesus Saves."

      So, should I pack a bag or will the government just give me underwear in lock-up?
