Preparing for apocalypse

“These aren’t the advanced skills they’re going to need. They’re going to need the more practical skills, like how to build a shelter from abandoned cars, or learn how to find drinking water by collecting the morning dew in human skulls…. A kid is not going to be able to kill a six-long irradiated beetle by pressing a few buttons. He’s going to have to go in there with an axe and hack, and hack, and hack!”

Fortunately, all the time I’ve been spending on the Wii of late means that I feel quite confident that if the global depression does turn the world into a post-apocalyptic environment, I will be able to drive circles around any mutated lizards, oversized apes, or children in turbo-charged baby strollers.
