Hav3n Blog Stop!
I'm very happy to announce that the Hav3n blog tour has stopped by my blog, complete with a UK giveaway!
I had a great (though slightly unnerving!) time reading Hav3n, wondering what I'd do if I was caught in an end of the world situation. Thankfully, the author, Tom Easton has come to our rescue, writing a fantastic and fun guest post, giving us the do's and don'ts of surviving a global catastrophe!
Surviving a Global Catastrophe
Global Pandemic wiped out 99% of the population?
Asteroid destroyed Civilization?
Alien/Zombie/Vampire invasion threatening human hegemony?
Super-Volcano erupting, ending world as we know it?
Read on for a list of important survival techniques that'll keep you grinning even as the rest of humanity is reduced to radoactive dust.
DO: Stock up on bottled water and tinned food. Eat your fill of pickled onion-flavoured Monster Munch NOW, because once the current stock is past its use-by-date, there won't be any more coming.
DON'T: drink stagnant water, especially if it has rotting corpses floating in it.
DO: Plant some crops and get some chickens. Canned food won't last for ever. If you're sqeamish about having to strangle the chickens for the pot, pretend they're characters from TOWIE.
DO: Wear stout walking boots and a face-mask.
DON'T: Wear kitten heels and a fascinator.
DON'T: Open the door to strangers. Especially those coughing up blood, standing in a pool of molten lava, carrying ray guns, etc.
DO: Charge up your iPod. The electricity won't be back on for a long time.
DON'T: Count on the government. Let's face it, they're no use now. Are they suddenly going to improve after a giant asteroid lands on the Houses of Parliament?
DON'T: Crown yourself Emporer of the Worldwide Union of Surviving States (WUSS) after a pre-emptive strike by an Alien civilization. After all, you don't want to draw attention to yourself when the Alien ships arrive to mop up.
DO: Study archery, basket weaving, animal husbandry, fishing, vampire-slaying, vulcanology.
DON'T: Study golf-course management, IT, telemarketing, PR, Sanskrit.
DO: Eat green vegetables.
DON'T: Eat green pork chops.
DO: Carry a medikit at all times.
DON'T: Carry an iPhone. There's no App to help you where you're going.
Thank you to Tom Easton for taking the time to write his great guest post for this tour - I hope that you enjoyed it!
