A SCI-FI buff and avid gamer is eagerly anticipating life in a wretched, post-apocalyptic wasteland.
As tensions rose between North and South Korea and stockmarkets collapsed, Tom Logan is confident that being a lone adventurer in the ravaged terrain will be more rewarding than working in IT support.
Logan stressed he was ‘ready for anything’ after watching films like Terminator 4 and Mad Max, ‘many, many times’.
He said: “I’ve also played every Fallout game on my PlayStation and I’m a pretty good shot with my cousin’s air rifle.
“Also I could do with losing a few pounds and all that exploring will be really good exercise. It’s definitely healthier than sitting in an office all day, unless you get killed by a giant scorpion.
Logan said it would still be possible to have a social life after armageddon, with bands of survivors gathering to drink moonshine in makeshift bars, possibly with ironic names like ‘Oppenheimer’s’.
He added: “There’s just no downside to living in an irradiated wilderness.”
