Last week, Stephen Colbert talked about multimillion dollar survivalist shelters - all the rage among the wealthy, apparently. Now, it's survivalist singles. Hey, ladies, how can you resist?

I see that there are twice as many men as women signed up for that doomsday dating service. I must say I'm shocked the ratio is that good.

But, heck, if half of those men are gay, everyone could find a match. Or they could agree to share. Ladies, now's your chance to take care of two Neanderthals - and all without electricity.

"Apparently, most women are not turned on by the 'Off Grid' living." Man, that's a surprise, isn't it? Crapping in an outhouse, getting water from the creek, up at dawn to prepare breakfast for your man, roasting squirrel over a wood fire - how could you get more romantic than that?

And you get to have children without all those nasty doctors and nurses, modern medical care, or even diapers - lots and lots of children!

You know, a lot of people look back at the past through rose-colored glasses. Ah, it was a simpler time then, wasn't it? But gazing backward from the comfort of your modern home is probably a lot more fun than actually living like that.

My elderly mother grew up without indoor plumbing. I'll ask her how she'd like to return to those days. :)
