But "prepared" has to be reasonable...

Chastity belts would avert abortions and sexual disease, but it's not reasonable (although I'm sure you'd find dissent )...

There's a difference between "being prepared" and "being prepared to a state of paranoia"...

Your logic is up there with a multi-millionaire living on raman noodles and a basement apartment "just in case"...
