Outstanding video.

Very well done.

ASTONISHING, EVERYONE.

ASTONISHING.

WATCH IT, NOW.

(I don't mean merely chapter 17, which we all know about. I'm talking about the whole thing.

Start at chapter 1.)

Excellent video. If the other videos in this series are this well done, I must watch those as well.

With rain outside expected all day, I'm canning some pork, making soup and bread. On and off I'm watching the videos.

I'm 2:01 into chapter 6, and my jaw has dropped. It takes a lot to rattle my cage.

I watched all of them and they are very well done. He really needs to get these all combined onto a vcd or something and distribute them. Highly recommended for all.

I favorited this. Clear. Short. Easy for anyone to follow. Couldn't stop watching them one after another... on #11 now.

Lionstones, thanks so very much for the excellent link!

I'm really enjoying all chapters and already forwarded the link to several friends. I hope 1 or 2 of them will get the message.

One thing has stuck with me: Chris says the next 20 years will be nothing like the last 20 years. With the utmost respect to Chris, but none of my 20 years, or all my rolling 20 years looked alike. When I look at the last 20 years ... I lived in 3 continents, 6 countries, a dozen cities and states, had 8-10 jobs, owned 6 vehicles, was single, married, divorced and married again, had 4-5 (minor) surgeries, made money, been at the edge of bankrupcy, had a dog, dog died, etc, and not to mention external events such as Andrew, 9/11, Katrina, tsunami, etc. I can go back to every year and say, "what a year!". Perhaps what is constant in my life is the constant changes.

I'm not saying, "poor me, my dog died", because in the great scheme of things that's not even a bump in the road, rather, just sharing that I've been through glory and tragedy, through abundance and scarcity. Using Chris' words, it's a belief that indeed the next 20 years will be tough ... for those who are unprepared and who have lived in a bubble.

Please comment and share. Please let me know if your last 20 years were essentially uneventful.

Thanks!

One utterly astonishing bit of information in Chris' video is the assertion that 1 gallon of gas is the equivalent of $7,500 worth of labor (@$15/hr).

IOW, we've been paying $4 for something that yields an equivalent return of $7,500. Oil is nothing short of magic, and clearly could never be replaced.
