Video: ‘Doomsday Prepper’ Shoots His Own Thumb Off

Quick!! It's the apocalypse!!
If Hollywood has taught us nothing else, it’s that we’re well overdue for an apocalypse and any of us who actually survive will end up fending off zombies or cowering in our basements. Not the Americans in National Geographic’s new series Doomsday Preppers though – because they’ve spent years preparing for such an eventuality, as these interesting* videos reveal. First we meet a gun-toting nutter called Tim Ralston, who uses the world’s imminent demise as an excuse for getting tooled up – but ends up blowing off his own thumb! (no laughing please..)


Doomsday Preppers begins on Wednesday 5th September at 10pm on National Geographic
