[Voice in the control room] Ask Him To Give Us His Stock Picks For That Scenario

CNBC: You’re very optimistic about the future not only of this country but also of the stock market. If you have a list of worries, what’s at the top of that list? Buffett: Nuclear, chemical, and biological attacks. Whether by government or some rogue group. That will happen some day in our future and it will be anything from a large tragedy to an unbelievable tragedy. [Video]

    Kind of surprised they didn't actually ask that..

  2. Dick Fuld says:

    He has officially lost it.

    Buffett: I really think this country is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.

    CNBC: What do you mean, 'biblical'?

    Buffett: What I mean is Old Testament, real wrath of God type stuff. Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!

      If I'm wrong, nothing happens! We go to jail – peacefully, quietly. We'll enjoy it! But if I'm right, and we can*stop this thing… Lenny, you will have saved the lives of millions of registered voters.

      And there were flames, and I heard a voice say "Zuul"!

    Other than that, I have no concerns.

    Duh, he thinks Obama will be reelected

    I made an unbelievable tragedy out of the FBN men's room.

    He seems pretty relaxed despite all these worries and tragedies..

  10. PermaGuestII says:

    Well, I guess that would explain why he lives in Nebraska.

  11. Whoops says:

    In such a situation, we'd immediately go long reinsurance.

    • Guest says:

      Nah. With a bit of Gartman-esque prescience, you would've gone long reinsurance the day before the disaster.

  12. guest says:

    CNBC: So what you're really saying is after such an attack, you're bullish on America and things can only go up from there?

    BUFFETT: Yes, yes I am.

  13. Dr. Cocktosin says:

    Nuclear, chemical, and biological attacks = Dairy Queen powered ballistic incontinence

  14. theShizznitt says:

    More so than nuclear or chemical armageddon, I am more worried that Buffet won't be able to keep his sagging nutsack pressed flat against his shin and they slip out from beneath his pants cuffs.

  15. guest says:

    Nah, the real risk is that once our sun exhausts the supply of hydrogen in its core and switches to thermonuclear fusion it will morph into a red giant, thereby becoming sufficiently large enough to engulf the current orbit of Earth.

    It revolves around the Earth.

    As for the comet hitting the earth, consider this limerick:

    From the public, his discovery brought cheers.
    From his wife, it drew nothing but tears.
    "For you see," said Ms. Halley,
    "He used to come daily;
    Now he comes once every 70 years!"

    If WEB thinks everyone should pay higher taxes [at least the rich] why won't Berkshire just pay the $37bn in tax liability they admit they owe? They paid $3.4B instead.

    Pay up Warren, you greedy dilly-pop snarfing cheapskate….

  19. Make It So says:

    What do Star Trek and toilet paper have in common? They're both trying to wipe Klingons off Uranus.
