Just like the titles says what if your country's economy collapsed. There wouldn't be anyone at their post to keep the grocery stores stocked, the gas stations full, or the power plants running. How would you cope without a steady supply of food and water? Or would you be alright with the food and water issue and just severely miss your electricity?

There are plenty of scenarios and situations that could come out of it. I just want to hear what you would do?

I would first of all grab my gun to protect from rioters/cops and go check on all of my friends. Then after that I would just play it from ear since I live in a contrasting rural and city area, where i could loot food stores and hunt/fish for a living.

I would spend as little money as possible
grok it.

SKREAM!

I would help turn my college into a commune. And we would repel all invaders with bayonets.
kill all humans

I would run to Samash or Guitar Center and take a couple of expensive guitars.

Your stupid and immature, imagined, bull**** scenario is not going to happen unless there's some sort of major f*cking earthquake. Rather contrary to your little, "there are plenty of scenarios and situations..."

Economies don't suddenly collapse and degenerate into some sort of "all-fend-for-yourself-with-primitive-ways" system. What you're witnessing as of today is an economic crisis. Rising dollar rates and whatnot...Not some stupid prehistoric fight for your survival crap.

Stupid buttf*cker.

that was brilliant contrast.

i would try and orchestrate some kind of mafia like system for protection. I could definitely see those springing up everywhere. Minorities/immigrants would have an obvious advantage as they already have a bit of that type of setup to adapt to their new life, etc. so it would be interesting to see how power and influence shifts.

edit: shit old thread is old, i guess that's what happens when you search around browsing old threads, leave for a snack, come back, and forget.


My mind is going. I can feel it.

If my country's economy collapsed I would elect a new leader that had no experience and had never gone against his own political party. That would be a good solution.

You can never fucking trust Canada when Canada decides to report on world news that doesn't concern Canada. Canada is only in it for Canada's sake. Canada doesn't even know Batman.

I'd would probably say "Well isn't that something", turn the news off, and go back to eating my Cocoa Pebbles.

Seriously,
there won't be immediate apocalyptic effects.

It happened in the 20's (?) and hey,
we're all still here.
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed
