I work in the field of IT disaster recovery both on the planning side and the execution of DR plans. I get to talk to a LOT of people. Most right after a disaster strikes. I have NEVER heard anyone who has survived a disaster tell me that their preparations were a waste of time or that they felt stupid for prepping. I highly doubt that the people who prepped and were prepared for Sandy would be called "gullible" by their neighbors.

It never hurts to be prepared. I am not preparing for the end of the calendar, I am preparing for 4 more years of the monster in chief.
I can see prepping for disaster, but stocking up on 30 year shelf-life food for the end of the world in less than three weeks is kinda funny. Fresh tomatoes would just about last long enough in the fridge.
Some people hate being proven wrong. Can you imagine being disappointed that the world didn’t end just because you thought you could assume the ancient Mayan calendar prediction was correct? Pathetic!
