I was very industrious this weekend in terms of finding a new gym. This included doing careful online research, visiting several gyms in person, comparing their – all right, I did nothing. Absolutely zilch. In fact it was a generally lazy weekend, except for some household chores I mostly just went online and did some reading on my phone’s Kindle app. I was reading The Disaster Diaries by Sam Sheridan, an informal but ultimately serious look at the whole disaster-preparation and TEOTWAWKI (the end of the world as we know it) field. It’s not really a how-to book, though after reading it I might be able to tan a deer hide (hint: you use its brain) and build an igloo. Chances are pretty slim I’ll be doing either anytime soon. All and all it’s interesting reading, and I particularly liked the way Sheridan debunked the usual stories that any sort of natural disaster will lead to rampaging mobs in search of victims. Even after Hurricane Katrina there was almost no mob violence and relatively little looting.
