Buck up and be strong, it's gonna get tough now like Vault-Co has been saying for ten years. It's gonna be hard. Chances are if you feel a natural interest in this site, you have the innate qualities of a survivor. Be ready to harden up and pack it in for the long haul. The best thing you can do for yourself is to commit yourself to Jesus and repent, then use that newfound pragmatic humility that Christians are famous for to figure your way out. That's what those God-given brains up there are for, believe it or not.
If you really believe this was an accident, you probably would believe just about anything. What it really was is a test to see if Russia could get close enough to take out a space based platform with a simple collision. The U.S. wants to believe it was an accident because the alternative is that the emperor has no clothes and at the start of WW3 it is likely all these fancy toys will be the first thing destroyed in a global thermonuclear war.
What is great about this procession of events is that this series of EMP shockwaves and wonderful sky shows the night before WW3 will be your cue to go into lockdown and weld your shelter shut from the inside. The real horror show will begin shortly thereafter and you want to be at least a few meters deep under an arched ceiling when that kicks off. I will appreciate the chance to pull the disconnect breakers for EMP protection on that very special day and protect my Vault-OS sensors.
