Now based on what the word actually means, Burt Gummer, the character from Tremors, is a survivalist. Beyonce, with all her songs about boys, and being your own woman, not always waiting to be waited on by a boy, is not. See the very key difference? Now I hope I never have to hear that word again, unless you're talking about gearing up for impending doom or the Zombie Apocalypse.

Time for a mini rant before I put up the post I had wanted to today. I talk to my friends as often as I can. I'm a good listener, and I try not to judge, but if I do judge, I come up with ways what they're doing can be better. Now this is for everyone in the Internet community. Do you know what a survivalist is? Do you really? Because I hear that term being thrown around so much, most of the time as a word for independent, strong and forward thinking when it comes to relationships. That is not what a survivalist is, and I don't care how many psych books tell you so. Wikipedia has a nice article about Survivalism and what it meant through different periods of history. Go read it.
