what people do in the face of impending death
I do not know —
What other people do facing impending starvation. I know what I do. I order groceries.
It is a very odd thing. Most of the time I do not eat a lot. When I am worried about cash flow? I eat like a ninja. So. A strike is possibly coming? My panic response is order groceries.
I will eat all of these groceries in like two days flat so it won’t help. If a strike hits it will not be for a month at least. But I am thinking about it today so eating like it is today. This means by the time a strike actually hits if it does hit I will be a size six at least half my clothes will not fit and I will be out of grocery cash. It makes no sense but that is how it works.
A strike is not actually a life threatening scenario. I have been in life threatening scenarios. They are much more immediate. Like, someone is trying to kill or damage or maim you right now. The thing about those though is, you have someplace to put your adrenalin. You can fight back.
