How Pinterest Users Are Preparing For The Impending Apocalypse

The world is supposedly ending on Dec. 21. Are you as ready as these pinners?

1. There are a ton of “End of the World” boards.

OK, so technically that last one is a wedding board, because if there’s one thing Pinterest likes more than collecting tips to circumvent imminent disaster, it’s weddings.

2. There are a bunch of “Apocalypse” boards too.

Think you have enough recycled bottles to last through nuclear winter? Think again, fool.

3. And, naturally, “Zombie Apocalypse.”

4. They suggest stocking up on zombie-destroying axes and DEHYDRAT[ING] EGGS.

Bonus: instructions for a DIY wind turbine.

5. Preserves and weaving stations are a must.

6. It’s good to know how to build an outhouse.

7. DIY your own dental work.

8. Store your parachute cords efficiently and sustainably.

9. Emergency nonperishables should be displayed in charming artisanal wooden spoons.

10. Call birds in style.

Eating them is optional.

11. It wouldn’t be Pinterest without infinite uses for Mason jars. They make great candles:

13. And stoves:

Probably the cutest emergency stove of all time.

14. There are useful hacks for everyday life.

16. And tips that are slightly more specific.

18. Don’t forget about your four-legged friends.

19. Of course, if all else fails, pinners are always ready to throw a party.

If we’re all going down, we may as well do it with pom-pom garlands and handmade bird masks.
