A set from I Am Legend, or a picture from a Queens supermarket taken minutes ago. You decide.

Must be the beer and cigarettes aisle.
Looks Like The Shelves at Fort Knox...
Plenty of gold dipped tungsten in stock. The ILLUSION of full shelves has been carefully preserved there.
Lots of gold in the Basement at Liberty Street too. But who owns it - or how many parties own it is another story.
As for London and COMEX vaults... that's a whole 'nother animal......
Fail. I suggest TEOTWAWKI Beans & Cornbread ...
Oh, but you can't wait til the last minute to stock up on 30 or 60 days of eatin' ... just sayin!
Looks like the zombie hordes have made their presence felt.
I can't wait until the virus of total collapse has turned everyone into brain eating zombies.
no worries bitchez
warren buffet is here with $5 billion he found in the bath to fix it
condom and metamucil aisle
The pic looks like a pre-looting event on the bottled water aisle...sort of a practice run...lol.
Krugamn says this will be GREAT FOR GDP!
Boy, lottsa + votes on this one...
We must be onto something herein.
Bottom line: Have Physical AU/AG, and keep it in SECURE place(s)...
Looks like Federal Reserve's gold vault.....empty except few ramen noodle packets in the background there.
Yes but how much brains can you extract from the average Joe six-pack? I think they will have to be eaten like blue crabs, you crack a skull here and there for a bite or two.
Wait until gas supplies are cut off ...then the shoot'n starts at gas stations...just like the 1970's.
<Wait until gas supplies are cut off ...then the shoot'n starts at gas stations...just like the 1970's >
I live in Texas, we didn't have any of that crap here.
Really? Do you have any of that flash mob nonsense going on in Texas anywhere?
Whaddya mean rthere's nothin' there. I'm here and there's somepthin' there. It's there, a bar a goldt. Now, I knows it might not look like a bar of goldt, beins it opens up atta endt, but believe U me, it's not oneadem salted tungsten falsies, eh? Andlookatta assay mark. See it sez "Goldt". Yeah, yeah, jus fuggedabout id dat it sez Magic Marker, ats got nuffin tah do wid it. There's za bar a goldt dere. See. Right here in dah Queenz. Is as goodaz Fr. Ganox. See.
Meh. Wake me up when it's empty ammo store shelves
SW gun store on the border.
American supermarkets after Q5.
They will be the 1st to be cleaned out....
Sadly the Sheeple will not connect the dots to the truth that the same will happen with the same speed but far mor violence when the collapse comes.
Did they stock up on iPads to eat too?
I take it the bug-out bags are sold out? Long mre's and good whiskey good luck to you folks and God speed...our thoughts are with you
That will be the home pregnancy test aisle in about a month.
Seriously. Just get a bucket of rice, beans, tortilla mix, and spices. Everything else is icing on the cake.
I wonder if this is the weekend Mr. Celente will be AWOL.
'Take rhe guesswork out of Eating Right!"
Hey! That's the Soylent Green isle.
+1 Karl Reality Bitchez. I live in the middle of Hershey Pa. Went to the store tonight. Went to the better local major grocery store.
Guess What, we know how to drive in the winter.
The guy in the meat section said, "Sorry. No steaks tonight. Today was worse than any major snow storm that hit us."
He reminded me, this was a Friday before a weekend when they stock up for the weekend. Hmmmmm.
It's about motherfucking, cocksucking time...
Spakle doubles for sour cream in a pinch, gotta be a new pre-mix container tho.
Lower taxes on the hurricanes!!
Irene will just be a tropical storm as "she" arrives in NY. Monday back to work. Boring world we live in.
More like some spotty drizzle & a light breeze....
Funny, last time you said that, shit blew up an hour later.
Ever the exuberant soul, happy to be alive. I have various ideas for you if you are perpetually bored:
-Join up with the GI's, go to exotic, faraway places, meet new, exciting people, and kill them.
-Plant some dynamite in your Ikea-nested apartment, and let it blow. Next, descend to the unlit, legendary tunnels of NYC where crazed people dwell. There, feel free to become Lord of the Tunnels, become a junkie, a cannibal, a murderer, or all of the above.
-Quit your job, change your name, take a random flight, and start a fight club. Start fights with strangers. Lose. Wallow in misery.
Do you know me?
Sure she'll be a tropical storm by the time she hits. She beat the crap out of the bahamas and didn't even get tired. If it hits any less than category 3 NY will be extremely lucky. There's a whole SHIT load of heat energy out there right now.
Pipe down--it's barely a Cat 1, and it's still many hundreds of miles from NYC...
Foolish to get everyone excited, desperate and worked up just so the politicians can't be blamed "should" something bad happen. The CPC and the MSM raves "shock" airplay (just like debt ceiling event). After all, no one wants to be compared to how Bush handled Katrina. Unfortunately, people will be somewhat less likely to respond this way next time when something really bad actually happens.
Told you so.
Wow, Queens must be having a big block party this weekend!
Hurricanes in the Hurricane. Roof party bitchez!
it is just the soda pop aisle the week-end after food stamps have come out. nothing unusual.
Ha! I used to work at a liquor store in the not so nice area of a small college town. The owners loved the 1st of the month and so did we as we would trade the food stamp participants their food stamps for cash at half the par value. Worked out great for both parties! Run on Heaven Hill half pints!
So who comes in and takes every thing off the shelves except one lonely package of food? It must really be bad if nobody will take it for the apocalypse. Maybe they need to discount it.
It kind of looks like a package of those "Peeps" they sell at Easter. If that's the case, I can understand why they're still sitting there. Not only crappy, but out of season, too!
Seriously, though- theose shelves have sale tags all over them, and down at the end, there are what look to be full shelves of bread. Whatever was there, it was probably a screamin' deal. I've seen that on regular ol' non-apocalypse days.
those peeps have a long shelf life. they'll still be good next easter.
Nah. They get hard and stale pretty quick.
Only if the plastic is violated. Otherwise, they keep for quite a while. It's only sugar.
I love peeps. I have some stored in my bunker for comfort food.
everything can be a screaming deal when your stomach demands it as such
= Drama Queens
Yep, MSM created the frenzy...
Falling inventories --- must be another sign of the robust recovery.
Treet's half the price and just as good...
Section on how to survive the next great depression section is empty I see?
Oops, forgot the "a" in "aisles".
I think Spam Isles is in or near the Seas of Cheese.
I hear the beaches are gouda.
If the store would just plug themselves into the wall-street skynet, Johnny 5 could bid up the prices for all of the bottled water and canned food ahead of time and resell to the public at "market" prices. The store could make a small commision on the trades. Sounds like a win-win to me. Why limit the fleecing to financial instruments? The CME could protect the public by raising and lowering Dasani and Spam margins whenever "volatility" gets out of control.
Fractional reserve food sales, bitchez. Yes the shelves are full but we don't have any food.
Yes, we have no bananas.
Yes, we have no bananas.
You wanted actual bananas? I thought you just wanted banana price exposure. Sorry, here are the greek bonds we used as collateral to back the ETF.
fractionalized scratch and sniff banana certificates?
Hedocially speaking, hungry consumers can just switch to plastic bannanas and weather the storm.
Dr. Greenspan I presume? :P
I love how the media is still trying to make Irene into Katrina II New York. This isn't a bad storm. I was in Florida for "The Perfect Storm" and saw a few palm trees go flying through the air. Irene is going to be a strong thuderstorm as it hits Long Island.
The people who got hit by the Tornados are going to have fun making fools out of all the Yorkers hunkering down for a bit of wind and rain.
LOOK OUT IT'S A CAT 2 !!! Oh wait cat 1 BUT IT COULD STRENGTHEN no not really.
Agree. This Hurrigeddon crap is getting out of control. We know its new york, and the government feels like its "worth" saving more than N.O. but come on. Life will go on. In the MW and there's t-storms with 60-70 mph winds many times each summer. Sack up bitchez.
Hmmmm, my first 'bitchez' use on ZH.
Well done, nice 'bitchez'. Congrats.
Good use of "sack up" too.
This AM the MSM is starting to backpedal as it's downgraded to a Cat 1..."Well, it will still produce lots of rain and potential for flooding." Yeah, just a like a summer thunderstorm. This whole show has been nothing but a version of MSM Pump and Dump. Sack up, indeed.
"This whole show has been nothing but a version of MSM Pump and Dump."
As Jim Cantore slowly loses his wood...LOL!!!
no shit...worst hurricane ever
I grew up in Texas... this shit is hilarious. We have parties where I'm from when a <= CAT3 rolls in. CAT4? Eh... that's a little more serious but c'mon... This thing's going to be a tropical vagina by the time it gets there. Like slapping someone with a sheet this bitch, Irene. Pft.
I agree with someones comment earlier: "pussies." This is the run of the mill day-before-the-hurricane/thanksgiving-day/christmas-eve shelf in a certain aisle. I'd like to see a picture from the middle of the entire aisle. That would give me a better "apocalyptic" point of view. I personally hunkered down through 2 just in the past few years. They, uh, weren't tropical depressions though. You drive around in that. That's basically just rain.
You sure as shit don't empty the soda aisle while you're shopping for easter candy extra-early.
...but in all seriousness get a membership to costco if you're concerned about your food... future. I just bought another 50 pounds of rice, 50 pounds of beans and 25 pounds of table salt for like $30. Or start a greenhouse. And have chickens. And cows.
Yeah, and I get a howl about the reaction when you get a couple of inches of snow in Wichita Falls....
Call me when you get 30'' in 24 hours, kay....
I'm stifling chuckles with each report. It's a CAT1 and it's grinding up the coast. It can't build any strength up that way. This is just the post-Katrina effect. Unfortunately, overreactions lead to real tragedies when people become numb to the hysteria.
Yup, it's pretty much the same irrational panic that pussy ass states like SC or TX fly into, whenever they get a rare 1/2 inch dusting of snow. ZOMG let's close schools and shut down traffic for a week
Acording to the vortex data readings they are panicking for nothing. The storm is losing intensity and unless you are sleeping in the subway or someplace else that is going to flood supplies should start making it into the city in heavy volumes on Tuesday at the latest. While it's hard to say the data at this point indicate that surface winds should be less than 60 mph sustained. A lot of rain though.
its fokin hilarious watching all the maroons here from bumblefuck, texas (or wherever the fok they came from) freak out over a rainstorm (yes, its gonna be a tropical storm and WONT be a direct hit to NYC...big fokin woop dee doo). if you cant handle the heat, get the fok out of NYC, bitchez.
-born and bred ny'er
I think I know how you're proncounging "fok" but man, if it's pronounced the way I'm reading it... that's fokin' awesome.
Does it sound like: "fah-k'-in" or "fawh'-kin" ?
The NY sheeple are in full effect. Saw them today buying - guffaw - candles and matches and batteries. The odious masses deserve what they get.
Looks like the bread aisle anywhere in NC when more than 10 snowflakes have fallen.
Of course, it is a friendly reminder that shit does not HAVE to be on shelves.
makes me nostalgic for the old propaganda pictures of soviet union grocery stores.
Is it Twinkies instead? Yeah the Twinkie and SPAM aisles.
No white coconut covered chocolate Sno Balls?
I can't believe what I just saw in Canada.
They moved in, bought 50 meat cans for 50$.
They returned inside the store, only with the grocery cash receipt.
They take another 50 cans, running to the parking lot, without paying.
After I saw them doing so for 10-12 times, I saw the security getting them. They showed him the receipt, just before punching him twice in the face, and run away with the strange "meat" stuff.
I'm telling you Banzai : this is all Bernanke's fault.
What a fucken moron!
and people seriously question a SHTF zombie invasion from the cities in an extended SHTF situation? I ask thee, where will those people go when the shelves are picked clean and they run out of food.
If we're lucky, they'll take out the armpit of Amerika along with Snookie and 'The Situation' all the way down to Wildwood and Cape May.
Could we be THAT lucky? ooooh.. my nipples are all tingly now.
Three days, tops, before there is no food available to purchase.
One week, tops, before there are problems
Two weeks, tops, before they start streaming into adjoining areas
One month, tops, before the army ants begin the march.
Watch out. If the wind speed exceeds 30 MPH a dozen buildings in New York will free-fall into their basements.
Would that be the backup plan after failing to feed the storm (weather manip is much harder than market manip) and if the media fails to make this into a blockbuster.
"Alright, pull it." Who said that?
is in the 1st of the month already ???
Bad, Seasmoke! Bad, bad, bad!
Heh, heh, heh.
Is that the condoms and tampax shelf?
When it comes to NY'ers, it's always that time of the month.
BLOOMBERG NEEDS TO GO!
The kiddies always love crackers....an excellent shopping list...Well played WB!!
breeze in the cart!? hahaha, nice work WB!
Irene could be a guy's name, I suppose.
Two eyes tho?
you know, the more I watch this whole situation unfold the more I am left to wonder at the level of panic the MSM and the govt seems to be breeding in this...don't misunderstand, I realize Irene is one beast of a storm, I canceled a trip to long island because of it, still I can't help but be left with the sense that this is being hyped above and beyond just "erring on side of caution". the question then is why? of course, I could just be jaded...
Anything to take the public's collective "mind" off the economy.
This hurrican is obviously a false flag joint operation between Israel and the CIA. The kick off of this campaign were the wild fires in the West this summer. The "earthquake" they felt along the east coast was an after effect of their redirecting the storm towards the east coast with a small tactical nuclear warhead, thereby diverting the public's attention away from Jackson Hole and the markets. Expect further "earthquakes" and "hurricanes" in the future.
I think it's interesting that TPTB repeatedly use the mass media to indoctrinate the people with the idea that we should be afraid of nature but trust the "authorities." It's been going on for years, and it's all predicated on an unspoken assumption they seem to have that we need them or all order will break down. This place keeps looking more like V for Vendetta every day. In most real disasters, people pull together and help each other or they die waiting for the damn authorities to show up.
Of course, if you were really jaded, you might think that all this panic is because they know something is coming that we do not.
+1 Very well said.
Easy solution.....don't watch the boob-tube. If I'm unfortunate enough to be in a room with the Zionews on, I end up yelling at all the lies that spew out from the screen and speaker. Co-workers get irritated with me ........I get irritated watching them eat that shit up. Why is it when I see O, or half of those other "representatives" (traitors) my first words are "You Fu..... Piece of Sh..,? It's involuntary now --- don't even have to think about it.
Take the power from "them" turn that shit off.
A lot of people in Queens are from the Caribbean and they know what Hurricanes can do... don't blame them for stocking up just in case.
This is the new way to get the economy moving and people shopping. Hurricanes, earthquakes, alien invasions. It works every time.
Maybe they should stop telling people how nice the recovery is going and tell people the TSIHTF. That will get people spending.
Best hurricane predictor around...
been predicting a bad one...
Now a word from the Ministry of Propaganda: Keep Calm and Carry On
Maybe it's the "shelving for sale section" of the supermarket.
I also agree with what is on the sign in the top right hand corner....."take the guesswork out of eating right"' .....BY NOT EATING AT ALL
Panda Watch!! Media Blitz! NYCity dwellers come face to face with reality! This may change the game, or not. Bullish for construction and clean-up.
As a HAM I know that after traditional comm is knocked out the 'true reach of disaster' becomes speculation for awhile then the real numbers of hurt and dead come in and make those who took these things lightly regret the flippant remarks they made. I expect this event to change the game for six months. Prices for 'supplies' will change as the large n'eastern population centers come to grips with the reality that has escaped them for a generation...nature happens.
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past. you feel good after seeing these boatssailboats for sale
Bikes don't leak oil, they mark their territory. nice bikes ,u can see bikes for sale
I hope you love birds too. It is economical. It saves going to heaven wonderful post, birds and parrots relate to this parrots for sale
Where is Slewie when you need him !!!!!!
The biggest worry is if the windows from skyscrapers start breaking, it will create cascading broken glass storm. It will give the wind grenade fragments. Houston went that through few years back but NYC is much bigger one.
MSM get a nice ratings boost. I guess I'd leave, but not dealing with crazy zombies. Maybe a good storm will kill some bedbugs and clean the shittown up, a little.
In Fells Point in Baltimore City People are filling bags with sand to protect their Businesses and Homes. That area flooded previously. Plus, I am sure the the people in Eastern Baltimore that are on the Bay are scarred to death about the storm. Huge flooding last large storm. Many were wiped out.
I went to the store for a few things and it was not that bad. They were out of rye bread, milk, 1/2 & 1/2, eggs were scarce, NO D batteries anywhere. Although, lots of AA & AAA batteries. I keep lots of bottled water because in my area the water is not potable, so that is not a concern. Plus, my Well Pump does not work without electricity. I have been without electricity and water for 4 days at a time with bad weather.
Some suggestions for those who normally do not run out of water when the electricity goes out. Prepare ahead. Fill a bowl of water in the kitchen and the bathroom to wash your hands. Fill the Bathtub with water and hope it holds it and does not run out. You can use a bucket to take the water out and flush your toilet. Keep about 6, two gallon jugs of water for flushing your toilet. Pour the water into the bowl and not into the tank, it is more effective. I save the plastic containers that cat litter comes in and use them. DO NOT FORGET THAT YOUR WATER HEATER STORES 40 GALLONS OF WATER. This water can be used in an emergency. You have to lift the relief valve for the water to come out.
Hope everyone stays safe.
Also, wash the dishes and your clothes before the storm. Nothing more frustrating than all of your clothes and dishes dirty. After 4 days or so the dishes really pile up. Remember you will not be able to wash them without water.
Because of where I live I do have a portable generator and a gas powered chain saw. They are invaluable.
Ive used a chainsaw on dishes before. It's really good at removing that dried on gunk. Wear goggles though
You can use your generator to run your well pump Waterfallsparkles...
My well pump is hard wired into the box. There is no way to plug it in. Probably should get an electrician to set it up with a plug.
Retail sale and consumer confidence numbers will go up.
Irene is a dud, like most girls the build up is all the fun...
At least in Queens the customers paid for the merchandise. In the Bronx they probably just stole it.
ooh ooh, let me guess, a pic of the inner workings of timmys brain?
The Supermarket: It's where beef grows!
The homeless people must be stocked up. I can't find a single can of Sterno in the entire state of NJ.
If you run out of Sterno, fill the can with some of that gel hand sanitizer. It's mostly alcohol.
It's not even funny anymore.. Did you watch Weather channel
this morning. Dude, staying directly in front of the "Hurricane"
on the beach, light house 100 yards from the beach not a
single damage, even sing with the beach name still intact..
Water like 50 yard away from Protective Dunes.
Till it gets in NY, (and that's the BIG IF) you can expect
ordinary windy rainy day, that's all to it. TV hype and
make people run to the stores and buy EVERYTHING, Hey, after all
that's good for Retail Sales Numbers :)))
They should call evacuation on Alaska as well..
Yeah... just a nothing burger...
I can only imagine the outrage on this site of a NY subway car got flooded out with 100 people drowned...
Some you people here aren't happy with anything....
Based on the posts here, I am now convinced that 75% of ZH are complete assholes...Fortunately the other 25% compensate enough to make it worthwhile....
Too bad ZH wasn't around for Katrina, that would have produced an epic thread or two....I can only fathom what the level of commentary would have been.....
Now junk away....
Perhaps the posts come from folks that have been used, misused and abused. They been cheated, robbed, lied to and labeled conspiracy nuts.
Janet Nazipolitano DHS would refer to ZH readers as terrorists not assholes. I'd think they might be just plain pissed off.
Kenya born Barama says "they bring a knife to a fight, we bring a gun". How about calling those "enemy" that don't want Barack Barry Hussein Soetoro Obama what's his names Marxist, redisdribute the wealth bullshit.
ZH readers use power of discovery, power of the pen and the most powerful vote to keep from turning into purple shirt, violent Obots.
Possesion of functioning anus allows one to hold and express an opinion on socio-political matters....
But it provides no guarentee that it is coherent one....
Obama is complete and utter failure; however, your word salad is even a bigger mess.
Well my guess was pretty good... From a sample of 10, the fraction of assholes is 0.80 with a variance of 0.16.... Consistent with my hypothesis....
Up to a sample size of 12.... 0.75
Consistent.... like a rock...
here we go ladies and gentleman!....apocalypse here and now. Gold and Silver to the moon on Monday
Got Commodities ?
No, just paper. I hope it doesn't get too soggy.
Looks like the shelves here in North Carolina in the winter time when they are predicting 1 inch of snow!
Funny... when we expect a major snowstorm here, there is not much fuss. Just a few common sense precautions. From what I have seen, just people here are just preparing. Nothing silly...
Don't forget the pop. density in NYC dwarfs NC....
