The world as we know it keeps getting scarier and scarier. Natural disasters are happening more often, terrorism is still rampant, and the economy is on life-support. Let’s not forget rising crime, wars, disease and the other horsemen of the apocalypse.
How are you planning to defend yourself? Might we make some suggestions?
1.) Discount bunkers
Have $9,950 laying around that you DON’T need for bills? Consider renting space in an economy class survival bunker. This regular folk’s fallout shelter will house you and about 1,000 others. You’ll have to relocate to remote Nebraska or own a helicopter for a quick retreat to your new home, but at least the bear essentials and six months of guaranteed existence will be provided to you after the end of the world.

5.) Brass-knuckle coffee mugIf you ever find yourself rushed by an angry mob while sitting on a park bench enjoying a cup o’ Joe, you better hope you’re sipping out of this mug. For best results use it to swing at and strike the perps. You could also splash them with the hot contents of your mug. [toxel.com]
7.) Whip-self defense key chain
Sharp jabs to the body and a face full of metal keys could deter an assailant, but will walking around the street with this clunky, clearly visible self defense device make you more of a susceptible target? Or does this device say “back off.” [whipselfdefense.com]
8.) Thought screen helmets
Stop alien abduction by scrambling the telepathic communication between aliens and humans. This is the theory used by helmet inventor Michael Menkin. [stopabductions.com]
