Kutcher fears apocalypse is near
WENN.COM ^ | December 28, 2010

Posted on 12/28/2010 6:10:26 PM PST by rickmichaels

Ashton Kutcher is getting toned and tough - so he can fend for himself and look after his family following an Armageddon-type crisis.

The movie star and producer, who is married to health nut Demi Moore, fears a major U.S. energy meltdown is nigh and he's trying to get superfit so he can deal with the chaos that will follow a blackout or worse.

Kutcher discovered combat training Krav Maga last year as he prepared to tone up for his role in Killers and now he's obsessed with running, Bikram yoga and Muay Thai fighting with the French national champion - and he insists he's committed to his extreme workouts, so he can dominate in desperate times.

The 32 year old tells Men's Fitness magazine, "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.

"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 electronic file... 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... All of my physical fitness regimen is completely tailored around the end... I stay fit for no other reason than to save the people I care about."

And he admits he tasted what life could be like after a major national or international calamity when he, Moore and her kids were left without power for 14 hours at their mountain cabin last Christmas.

He adds, "I got my guns out. We made a fire. We went to the grocery store... People were rolling in and out, clearing out all the shelves... It was like a preview."

Gee, nice to know that these Hollywood moonbats who are always putting down the rich and preaching to the rest of us, aren’t going to be willing to share a damn thing with anyone else around them. Pick off the neighbors and hoard the food.

We are the world, we are the children...
Watch out, it’s Ashton Kutcher! Ahhhhhh!

Good. Acceptance of your problem is the first step towards your recovery. This link may help. It is a 12 step program. Best of luck:

He has nothing to worry about. He and Demi are Obama’s servants. I heard them say it in a video.

I just hope that when the SHTF or TEOTWAWKI or California runs out of money that he is near LA. He will not get out alive.

Oh, I see what you did there. I asked you a generic, non-personal question, but you somehow took offense to it. In self-preservation, you tried to imply that I have some sort of problem, that I’m brainwashed, and I need some sort of assistance by way of a 12-step program. So you linked a Wikipedia article on 12-step programs to somehow add “punch” to your assertion. That’s really original and not at all lame. Not at all. No sir.

And that was sarcasm. Should I send you a Wikipedia link?

Some people become selfish predators, most do not - and that majority will make short work of the predators they catch.

Correct. Neighborhoods and communities will band together and help each other. Most of the folks are not savages. I don't think it will go easily on the folks that put us in the mess though.

He sounds behind the curve to me. Lots of us here at FR get our gun out to go down to Kroger and such. It’s part of your kit, like your wallet, keys, cell phone, and comb.

LOL If 14hrs is what he considered survival skills he is so not prepared.

I wonder if the “types” who gave GPS/address ect to Bristols new digs are going to out the Kuchers GPS of their secret cabin proximity. Fair Game.
Speaking of he better think a little bit more outside of his body fitness and get some range time in along with some good hunting skills.

Bomb shelters were pretty popular during the Cold War 1950’s. I remember Civil Defense drills in grade school. Then it all seeemed to drop out of favor.

Now? Hmmmmmm

I can’t believe the guy woke up and I really can’t believe he discovered Krave Maga. That is what the Mossad uses. There is still hope for the country.

Yup and it will just cause price increases as more figure it out. Too bad for us that will win when the SHTF. Of course the winner gets the spoils.

Well maybe this guy is doing all this for a publicity stunt but I *do* see this as a good sign. Look, anytime one of the sheeple opens one eye to what’s goin on around him/her I think is good for this country. We are quicy heading off the cliff but it’s still not too late to turn this thing around. Perhaps it’s a bit of fear mongering but fear does work, it can and will motivate change.

As for this idiot, if he truly has had a change of heart and now understands how fragile our society really is right now I say good. I’m sure Ashton will still support Obama in ‘12 and everyone of his policies, this is a start at least for him.

As for Krav Magra, there’s many versions of it here in the states. I’ve noticed it’s become the ‘in’ martial art for the trendy people. Krav is effective if the old school version is taught but I highly doubt Ashton is going home black and blue after every class.

Yes I’m sure you are probably right about Ashton Kutcher but maybe as you say he has a small clue.

The guy actually has some good points. Be prepared.

Then again, I grew up "Up North" away from cities and can handle tough times. All I have to do is survive here and make it back home to Roscommon. Up there I got water, wood, few people, wild game, fire materials, family, and lots of land parcels. Down here, I have a generator and gasoline, plenty of guns and ammo, and enough to get by. However, I'd rather been more than 10 miles from Ypsi.
