(Newser) – Ashton Kutcher, prepper? Count the actor among those who believe Armageddon is close at hand. “It won’t take very much, I’m telling you,” he says in a Men’s Fitness interview excerpted by Just Jared. “The amount of convenience that people rely on based on electricity alone. You start taking out electricity and satellites, and people are going to lose their noodle. People don’t have maps anymore. People use their iPhones or GPS systems, so if there’s no electricity, nobody has maps.”

In the interview, he recalls that when the power went out last Christmas, “I got my guns out. We made a fire. We went to the grocery store, and the doors were open because they’re all electronic. People were rolling in and out, clearing out the shelves.” Other than the guns, how does he prepare? Krav Maga, an Israeli army combat technique, the Huffington Post notes. “All of my physical fitness regimen is completely tailored around the end of day,” he says. “I stay fit for no other reason than to save the people I care about." How serious ... or not. Tweeted Kutcher today: "Sometimes u have to do interviews just to amuse yourself. This is what a conversation looks like out of context."
