What if?

What if….

the distance to the iceberg is closer than our turning radius and closer than our braking capability.

Should you be still plugging away in the Titanic’s boiler room?

Or are there other things that you might be doing?

When should you be shoveling a little less coal and maybe getting a little closer to the door?

And where are the life boats again?

    My wife won’t leave this rapidly-sinking ship to move to the island I’ve picked out off Panama.

    So what to do to be as safe as possible in the interim? I am now starting to get queried at work from coworkers who are starting to come to the opinion that maybe I have been unfortunatley right. I advise them to stock up, but am unsure what to recomend in the way of a personal ark. And there is no p;easure in just having a boilout plan for myself and my family. What to do to advise other productive people as well remains the puzzle. As well as what might be done to safely organize like minded individuals to directed effort in time for 11/12. And whether that would be enough.
