Ashton Kutcher Survivalist?

Hey, if he’s buying guns, good for him. Hope he learns how to used them too.
If nothing else, I appreciate the fact that he had the balls to say was he’s doing and not afraid of the PC cry out. Every public figure that comes out of the closet (or the bunker :-)  ) does a favor to the rest of us.

"It won't take very much, I'm telling you. It will not take much for people to hit the panic button. The amount of convenience that people rely on based on electricity alone. You start taking out electricity and satellites, and people are going to lose their noodle. People don't have maps anymore. People use their iPhones or GPS systems, so if there's no electricity, nobody has maps."
"And people are going to go, 'That land's not yours, prove that it's yours,' and the only thing you have to prove it's yours is on an electric file. Then it's like, 'What's the value of currency, and whose food is whose?' People's alarm systems at their homes will no longer work. Neither will our heating, our garbage disposals, hot-water heaters that run on gas but depend on electricity - what happens when all our modern conveniences fail? I'm going to be ready to take myself and my family to a safe place where they don't have to worry."

I had to laugh at this though :-p

He's also taking daily bikram yoga sessions, and learning Krav Maga, a deadly Israeli combat technique taught to high-powered special ops.

Lady!! Why the heck are you elbow hitting that old guy? ;-p

LOL, I think this is your funniest post yet FerFal. But even though he is a hollywood star he is right, I often tell people the same things, what would you do if all the lights went out and stayed out? They always give me a blank stare. Sad really.

that was a good post, Ferfal. what's even funnier is the snotty commentary below the article. huffpo is a liberal publication with a lot of sneering followers; like you find all over the 'web. If you say anything positive about firearms you must be a loose wingnut...

Ashton Kutcher is a webaholic. His twittering habit is legendary. So, you figure he's spent a LOT of time online, apparently has been reading all the same sites we do, and come to the same conclusion.

It's just funny picturing the guy who played a total dimbulb from "That 70s Show" saying that. I never would have expected it!

As an entertainer he wins or loses based on adopting the pulse of the masses.

As a subset of fashion, winners parallel the trend, they don't make it. When times are optimistic winners are bubbly and Disneyesque.

When people's mood turns dark, Disney gives way to Saw, Hostel, and another Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake. Savvy entertainers are quick to remake their images into the new trend, while those who keep doing what got them their fame lose it quickly.

Think about who he is married to and whose kids he lives with. Bruce is a conservative and no idiot . He cares about his family and all 3 have unlimited funds. They already live in the northwest in a small town.

Strikes me as yet another spoiled city kid saying "Man it would be so cool if like you know War of the Worlds really happened..." etc.

They don't realize how sucky it would be, and that their spoiled city kid butt would actually have to do hard stuff and endure hard stuff.
