OK, it's Friday and rather slow on F-chat, so here's an ongoing beef of mine. Why is it that when the local weather forecasts a snowstorm, every idiot that can drive, walk, or crawl to the local grocery store will attempt to stock up on food like the Great Ice Age of the Millenium is on it's way? People who normally wouldn't eat a loaf of bread or drink a gallon of milk within a week's time will suddenly feel the need to buy 3 or 4 loaves of bread and several gallons of milk as well as anything else that will fit inside a grocery cart? In the past 15 or 20 years of modern urban America, has anybody REALLY had to survive for more than 48 hours without a fresh stockpile of groceries due to inclimate weather? Down here in Arkansas, there hasn't been one time in 30 years or more than a person couldn't get to the grocery store within a day or two due to bad weather. These idiots act like 1 inch of snow will isolate them inside an icy tomb for weeks at a time, so they strip the store shelves of edibles like a hyena gnawing on a wildebeast carcass.
