Bad guys are everywhere. It's best to stay in the good ol' USA.

Stay in your house and lock the doors. Hide sharp objects in a safe place. Turn off the water so you don't accidentally drown. And shut off the electricity! That shit can kill ya.

I just bought 8 jugs of bottled water and 20 pounds of Cosco chicken salad. I'm hunkered down to ride-out the danger period.

That's not enough. You need guns.

Coincidence that Cabela's is next to Costco? I think not.

I would avoid Beijing.

Beijing Looks Like A Climate Horror Movie Right Now
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/bei ... _hp_ref=tw

"The thick smog, which began rolling in last week, will take an even more apocalyptic turn from Tuesday to Thursday. For three days, the red alert will force the city's 20 million residents to stay home from school, drive only on alternative days (determined by license plate numbers), and refrain from fireworks and outdoor barbecues."
