Since I am in the employ of my uncle Sam, I would raid the armory of ammo rifles and fuel.
The woods around Oregon would offer the most food and seclusion. Then I would begin construction of the cockadoodle poo mud hut.

I would finally be able to be the wandering soul I always wanted to be.

Play Fable 2! (sorry, it's the only thing on my mind right nao)

But if the economy fails, you wont really be able to play.


That being said I need to pick up Fable 2.
Side note: I need to finish Fable

Completely unrelated side note: Did you hear about the zombie outbreak that's happening in GTAIV?

October 23, 2008 - If you've been playing Grand Theft Auto IV recently, you might have noticed a new character skin a zombie wearing yellow briefs. No, it's not your imagination (you sick jerk). It's the newest dastardly development from Rockstar.

If you kill an infected player in a multiplayer match, you'll become zombified yourself. According to Rockstar, telltale signs that your opponent might be a zombie include a.) looking like a zombie and b.) having the achievement "Let Sleeping Rockstars Lie." That achievement is unlocked when you kill a Rockstar developer or pop someone who has.

Rockstar recently hosted a weekend-long event on Xbox Live giving gamers the opportunity to play with them and nab that achievement. Apparently, there was also a secondary motive. Namely, unleashing a zombie pandemic on Liberty City. Oops.

According to a post on the Rockstar Social Club official site, infected players don't necessarily show symptoms (i.e. the zombie skin with the yellow briefs), so trust no one. The site also now features an interactive map showing the extent of the outbreak and an updated tally of the infected. Apparently, as of this writing, more than 603,000 players have been zombified thus far, with 1,300 falling within the last 24 hours.

But a recent Rockstar-created ad on the Social Club site suggests something may be in the works to curb the spreading disease. It's a simple sign from Eugenics Inc. (a real in-game location) warning of a coming quarantine:

No word yet from Rockstar on what it could mean or whether possible cure for the monstrous ailment is in the works. After Halloween, perhaps? The appearance of the sign has led to some speculation that the coming GTA IV downloadable content could be related to the multiplayer zombie outbreak.

We're still in the dark about what form the GTA IV DLC will take, but we'll let you know once R* starts talking.

TAKE TO THE STREETS!

Everywhere I hear the sound of marching, charging feet, boy
cause summers here and the time is right for fighting in the street, boy
But what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock n roll band
cause in sleepy London town
There's just no place for a street fighting man
No...

Hey! think the time is right for a palace revolution
But where I live the game to play is compromise solution
Well, then what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock n roll band
cause in sleepy London town
There's no place for a street fighting man
No...

Hey! said my name is called disturbance
Ill shout and scream, Ill kill the king, Ill rail at all his servants
Well, what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock n roll band
cause in sleepy London town
There's no place for a street fighting man
No...

There is a place for Street Fighting Man, and it's when the bankers don't get what they deserve, and the Public having to pay for their mistakes.

we send all those starving africans
over to china and let them
depopulate each other
we take over the rice paddies
introduce beef cattle
(water buffalo is gamey)
let the arabs finally just go at it
that's a self solving problem,
and hole up in cheyenne mountain
for a few years until its all sorted out.

I one time had to write a summery of that but I didn't want to so I analyzed it instead and I wanted to end it with "if this proposal ever came to past I will be the first one to eat your baby." But I thought the teacher might not like that.

So who's the second one to eat the teacher's baby?

If the economy fails today I will rejoice because I don't have to pay any more loans? I guess I'd just have to raid the nearest ISP and start some raid parties to make sure the land-lines stay active between the major internet hubs, Google, and a few MMORPG servers. And wikipedia, because even if they don't have the right answer, they get you close enough to find the right answer. :)

But it's only made for shotguns. And I have a pistol. I should sue for discrimination!

just hang your gunbelt

shoot for discrimination.

I think I'd rather just put a pistol on my nightstand (sufficiently far from the snooze button to avoid mistakes) and leave the shotgun somewhere I'm not likely to whack my knee on it crawling in and out of bed in the middle of the night. Like 3 feet away leaning in the corner.
