Turning on the news or seeing my smart phone flash breaking alerts from CNN every few minutes or so is getting overwhelming these days, some days it truly feels like the end of the world is coming.
Even today, on Halloween when the worst thing that should happen is you get jump scared by a clown or a tummy ache from too much sugar, there’s been a terrible terror related attack in NYC…again.
Every day, all around the world, there are mass shootings, genocide, famine, disease, devastating earthquakes, volcanoes erupting, acid attacks, terror attacks, stabbings and tsunamis. To top it all off North Korea and #45 have us all a little on edge with their escalating war of words on Twitter and twitchy fingers on their nuke buttons. It almost makes me want to build a bomb shelter in the backyard (and i’m only half-kidding) – gulp!
All of this has me wondering what I can do to help (and prepare ourselves for a natural disaster or otherwise). So in honour of my current binge watching of Stranger Things 2…
Here are 8 shows that can help you prepare for the end of world: (and let’s hope we never need to use this information!)
In the case that a supernatural being that lives in an alternate world attacks you – Stranger Things & Stranger Things 2
In the case that your town is struck by a tornado filled with sharks – Sharknado 1, 2, 3 & yes, there’s a 4
In the case of a zombie apocalypse – The Walking Dead
In the case of a mega thrust earthquake – San Andreas
And the resulting tsunami – The Impossible
In the case of a huge asteroid hurtling towards earth – Armaggedon
In the case that you have to work for a crazed Drug Kingpin who makes you launder money – Ozark
In the case of an epic volcanic eruption – Pompeii (or just watch so you can stare at Kit Harrington!)
