[QUOTE=pauliec;2797316]Armageddon. I've got bottled water, flashlights, lots of batteries, protein bars, and a shotgun. I'm just a little low on ammo.[/QUOTE]
You know, I know you're joking, but the joke might not be too far removed from reality. A lawyer I know said that theft cases have skyrocketed recently--stolen cars, plundered houses, etc. Here's a quote:
[QUOTE]You have no idea dude. I am BANKING right now. People are stealing everything that is not nailed down and some **** that is. People are taking cordless sawsalls and going under SUV's and cutting the catalytic converters off for $200.00 a piece because they can melt them down and get Platinum and Iridium out of them.
Radiators, scrap metal, heck I got appointted to a guy who took his torch and cut down one of those huge light poles at a local shopping mall and was cutting it up and throwing it in the back of his truck when the Police arrived.
Every little fender bender someone now puts a claim in.[/QUOTE]
