Well, its not really schadenfreunde. People were told over and over what was coming, but for whatever reason, decided to be like Lindsay Lohan and ignore some very sound advice. These folks aren't really suffering from misfortune, or even simple ignorance.
It is outright stupidity.
Aesop was a slave, yet told fables with central themes that can only be described as truth. Sometimes it would seem that "truth", especially today, tends to be malleable depending on who is telling the tale. But then, is it really truth, an opinion, or worse.... an outright lie? Examine the central truths within Aesop's fables and see if they are malleable, or rigid. Have they survived millennia essentially unchanged?
Or are they like the pronouncements of the learned and esteemed men and women of today? The pronouncements they label as truth. Global Warming is now Climate Change. Obama's promise of "change" and yet, we're still embroiled in two wars and how many police actions? Unemployment is shrinking, yet the numbers of new applicants for benefits grow each day. Even as people drop off the roles because their benefits have been exhasuted. The Patriot Act, ostensibly a tool to protect Americans from terrorism, but in fact the very structure to leave Americans vulnerable to the predations of the uniformed, gun wielding terrorists at home.
Two of Aesop's most famous fables concerned a tortoise and a hare, and an ant and a grasshopper. To a prepper, these are central to our core philosophy. Slow and steady wins the race, and to prepare for days of necessity.
The days of necessity are upon many around the globe. Those of you who have yet to prepare still have time, but you best get at it now. Before the panic sets in.

Slow and steady, people. But pick up the pace just a wee bit.
