Bart's Comet

Hello again, dear followers. As you may know, I am a huge fan of the TV show The Simpsons. I believe it is a witty social commentary that rips its plots directly from the headlines. Case in point--tonight's episode was "Bart's Comet," an episode where Bart discovers a comet that turns out to be headed RIGHT TOWARDS SPRINGFIELD! Naturally, mass panic ensues with all the Springfieldians trying to find shelter to survive the impact. Nobody planned ahead except for the Simpson family's resourceful neighbor Flanders, who also was kind enough to include enough supplies for the Simpson family to join his in the bomb shelter. Unfortunately, the entire town comes knocking on the door and the Super Christian Flanders ends up surrendering his place in the bomb shelter for the greater good of his neighbors. Luckily, the comet is thwarted by the massive layer of pollution above Springfield and nobody ends up being incinerated.

It is very interesting that this episode came out in 1995--SIXTEEN years ago--but its messages are timeless. You should build your bomb shelter with extra space and supplies because undoubtedly, there will be some unprepared neighbors who will want to mooch off of your preparedness. Of course, to avoid that hassle, DON'T TELL YOUR NEIGHBORS WHERE YOUR BOMB SHELTER IS LOCATED. The second point is that the End of the World as we Know It will come from an asteroid. Thanks to loyal follower Dog Mama for sharing this story:
