Well, from the tone of these posts, I'll asumee that we are talking major TEOTWAWKI. So, if that is the case, and die off is in the billions, I shall offer my humble self as a paid stud sevice, to aid in the re-population efforts. The price will be right too.

The second half of item #4 in the article on my website entitled "Finding Y2K Prep Time and $$" contains a number of professions that I surmise will have a decent chance of offering reasonably steady employment after the effects of Y2K crest. (Armed guard, prostitute, unorganized or government-associated looter will, too, but these have longevity, degradation, and moral problems associated with them, so I will not suggest choosing them.)

I've got connections to get a good paying government job. Someone I know who works for the IRS told me they will be hiring in January and I'm going to get a job as a full-time pencil sharpener.

Whoah, good question! I plan to cook chili. Do you like chili? I know I do. Red Dawn is a pretty good (although dated) flick, by the way.

Just yesterday we had an impromptu family meeting discussing getting the family bicycles in good working order. I chuckled and shared that we could start a taxi-type know...along the order of rickshaw type deal but using a bike. Everyone thought that was great and agreed that we'd have to really build up on our muscles...ALL of them.
