anonymous asked:

Should I be afraid of what's happening between the usa and north korea right now?

If you live in Minnesota, probably not yet. If you live in California like I do, you might want to make sure your bug-out bag is prepped (fortunately, @gohst-prncss-awez already has that covered in our home). If you live in Honolulu or Saipan, you should probably be scared. And if you live in Seoul, you’ve already been terrified for the last 60 years.

Seriously, North Korea has been so problematic and so unpredictable for so long that it has sort of tempered our worries or fears about what they consistently have threatened to do. But North Korea has a bellicose, inexperienced, and irrational leader who doesn’t seem to understand the consequences of his actions at the same exact moment in history that the United States has a bellicose, inexperienced, and irrational leader who doesn’t understand the consequences of his actions. Nothing is normal anymore and everything is dangerous. So, I don’t know for sure how the rest of the world should feel, but I’m pretty fucking terrified about the current situation. And it’s not like I have been sleeping easily since Inauguration Day in the first place.
