The implication is that you have been bitten for a long ass time when you are given the amputation option. I cant speak for the comics but in the show at least Dales amputation is done minutes in.
Even then its all fucking plot filler anyway, if they're already infected then the only logic I can assume is that bites kill you via introduction of rotten flesh into the wound and therefore antibiotics and proper wound cleaning should prevent death.
Matilda Cliffingford - Fri, 18 Apr 2014 17:44:28 EST ID:lwVxAFg5 No.12978 Ignore Report Quick Reply
Amputation to stop infection has been portrayed inconsistently in the games, show, and (I gather, haven' t read most of them ) the comics. Since according to the canon everyone is already infected, the only reason why a bite would 'zombify' you would be if it killed you the way a normal human bite would (ie blood loss and infection). For what it's worth, human bites are notoriously infectious and I'm sure a rotting human would be quite a bit worse.

The most generous way to interpret the way amputation is shown to affect zombification is that it (possibly) helps prevent the spread of microorganisms in the wound to the rest of the body if it's performed immediately, but that the amputation itself causes major blood loss and the potential for infection from the resulting injury. The best thing would probably be to clean it out and bandage the bite and then fill the victim up with antibiotics. But I don't think Lee in the game even knew that he had been infected with the 'zombie virus' all along and so amputating his arm made more sense as an option because he thought the most important thing was to keep the zombie virus out of his system rather than treat a regular infection. He then died of infection/bloodloss later. I thought it was sort of stupid of Rick to hack off Hershell's leg like that, but sometimes people do stupid things. It was an emergency and he didn't really have much time to think it through.

The less generous way to interpret it is that the writers are too stupid to keep the canon consistent. I prefer not to think of it that way.

Yeah I think Rick knew they would need to either amputate his leg and hope for the best or spend who-knows-how-much time searching the zombie-infested prison for antibiotics for the only competent doctor in the group.

That won't work. For beer, first you need to malt the seeds (partially germinate) then mash the seeds (soak in warm but not boiling water) then boil it, THEN leave alone for a few weeks.

Wines are much easier, since it's pretty much what you wrote except with fruit instead of seeds. And juice instead of dust.

I think there's another thread about this in /fo/

Sorry we're late, Submarine travel always gets tricky around these gulfs.

Hello! Welcome to the Community of Happy Cephalopods! We live in large underwater skyscrapers that act as functioning islands.. kinda like icebergs, so we're a nomadic oceanic culture that strives on trade, fishing, self preservation and community.

Of course to keep such a technological feat running we need smart educated people to be ready and willing to solve engineering feats we might have., We're always renovating, adding and sharing what we have with others. We also need things like nylon cloth, aluminum, wood, silicon and silly putty.

We live on a system of temporary property ownership known as mutualism. People can take some submarines or boats as they please, but they gotta use'em . We got plenty of rooms and storage space, underwater farms, gigantic turbines that harness the power of the ocean storing the energy in large salt-cells.

It's basically a system of mutual respect, we work together and our culture dictates that we don't hoard anything and generally share it within the communities. The only forms of official government are the keepers of silly putty, who are known to be quite pernicious relationships regarding this rare and pleasant resource.

Writing a post apocalyptic story and need some help. Basically the main character is a scientist working with the deadliest airborne disease. He knows if this gets out it will wipe out the population. Just to be precarious he builds a bunker for himself in case anything goes down.

It does go down and he has to stay there for years. 5+ years. What can he have in his bunker to survive for years? I need ideas for electricity. Can't use gas for too long. Solar panels can be stolen from other survivors. So what energy source can he use?

Also what else can he put in the bunker? Like food, water, body waste etc.

What? Precarious means a risky situation, not one of Pre-Caring about the possible disasters. I think you should write your story in your native language.

Pic related. Make your story about the intense isolation of being underground, how the scientist takes his family down with him and despite doing his best to shoulder the burden of providing power to his family by cycling on one of these devils, start to stress the emotional strain of him having to put the burden onto his family. First his wife, then his children.

It'll be a thinly veiled stab at how the American dream has been pigeon-holed into a race you sacrifice your children to the national debt, which none of us can ever win.

youre entire scenario requires you to know where the bunker is and have a large group of people to siege it.

good luck convincing a bunch of people to wander around the woods looking for a camoflagued entrance. most people place these things in rather isolated areas so you'd need to bring in supplie trains to supply your people as you hunt for the bunker and destroying all the natural supplies to attempt to get in is counter intuitive the entrances are usually hidden and if you've ever played hide and seek in the woods a little camo goes a long way.

and its not like people who make these things arent prepping for nukes that release poison gasses and such so theyed have filters to remove things like smoke.

better off just raiding something not ment to stand up to a raid.

At what point is it best to bug out? What real-world scenarios would warrant dropping everything, grabbing your bag and getting the fuck out of Dodge, so to speak? I get natural disasters that leave large areas uninhabitable or at the very least very dangerous would be up there on the list as well as rioting and social unrest but at this point it may be too late to make for an effective escape. What are the warning signs that one should look for in regards to deciding it is time to leave?

I've added some things since then but for the sake of brevity I won't go into it. This is for scenarios and general warning signs, not necessarily gear.

That's my thinking as well. When I see panic starting to spread my way, I prepare to leave as quickly as I can. But what I'm trying to get at is that I need to know the warning signs of such unrest as well as other situations where bugging out is warranted.

Keep tabs on world events and local news. The weather too.

Usually the PANIC! mode happens suddenly and without warning due to something like radio/cell phone announcements suddenly like RUSSIA IS INVADING REMAIN CALM THE NATIONAL GUARD WILL PROTECT YOU or a nuke siren would turn any other calm day into full retard chaos mode. Those are the kinds of things you can't anticipate. Sneak attacks from terrorists or invading countries. Sudden natural disasters happen without warning sometimes but there are usually warning signs with tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanos, bad storms, hurricanes etc.

A terrorist attack requires a different response than an invasion obviously. If you hear about a terrorist attack get away from populated areas, get all your NBC survival gear and watch the news. Go to a remote location if people are being rounded up by the National Guard for safety as those locations could become potential targets next. The Guard will be meaning well but you should look after your own ass, plus with relief camps like that, panic can make them explode into unconstrained chaos, paranoid OMG FEMA CAMPS people can start grabbing M16s from the armory and yeah, you don't want to be there unless you're a Guardsman, then obviously do your duty.

For an invasion the same general rule applies but foreign countries know the US is chock full of gun toting average people so if you see foreign soldiers parachuting into your neighborhood, shoot to kill because they've most likely been ordered and trained to treat you as an enemy combatant. The National Guard will tell you to go to their camps and not fight but they'll be glad people did when the dust settles.

Seriously any invading soldier setting foot in America is going to be paranoid as fuck. They will shoot, your little cottage house or whatever isn't going to look innocent and pastoral. If they don't behave that way their invasion isn't going to last very long. So yeah be aware of that if you're an American citizen or even just visiting here and an invasion happens. Everyone here might become a target.

It's very hard to wipe a plant out of existence, if not near impossible.

Even more so one that grows in a ridiculous amount of the world. Even if you made a virus/fungus etc that destroyed the plant, there would be forms of the plant that would be resistant to it because, well, because evolution. Good luck spreading that fungus to all the different parts of the world as well, if the fungus can even survive in the very hot/very cold/very dry/very wet areas that weed can grow.

It would be easier and more plausible to make some kind of pest like locust and somehow genetically breed it to fucking love eating weed, even then seeds would survive, persist and spread, and the pest would again have trouble spreading around the world and surviving in different climates.

Shit now I think about it trying to wipe a plant out to extinction is probably one of the hardest things you could ever attempt to do.

True. There's plenty of rare plants that could be made extinct in the wild. With a concerted effort, I bet authorities could destroy all wild peyote (so they'd only grow in captivity).

Look up the American Chestnut. It was brought to the brink of extinction thanks to a wild fungus.

Oh wow this is a board now. I am real happy about that, I have so many apocalyptic fantasies.
Ok So This thread is just to discuss your general battle plans for whatever varied forms of apocalypse you want to have a plan for. I would however like to keep a general structure just for the sake novelty. Some things to include that'd be great are the following:
>official start date should be 'tomorrow'
>start with day 1, follow through at whatever pace you deem acceptable
>be sure to include what kind of apocalypse you're planning for, nuclear, alien, virus, zombie, biblical, robot, asteroid, cthulu or otherwise. We need to know what you're reacting to
>try to be as realistic/knowledgeable as possible, after a battle plan destined for failure isn't much fun to talk about

That seems sufficient.
For those who need inspiration; It's March 7th you wake up , and immediately realize it's one of those days that start of eerily calm for what ever reason, a lull in traffic, people that are usually around not being around, it could be anything. Going about your daily routine like normal you hear a scream all the way outside off in the distance, it doesn't bother you though. It's weird but whatever. You walk into your living room, you left the TV on last night and the emergency broadcast system is on the screen, it's not a test this time and it's quiet. Changing the channel, most of them are the same until you find a news channel.

So here I'd like some help, I want to continue my story but I'd it to be interactive, anyone want to pick what kind of apocalypse I'm going to have?

Hey, /fo/. At one point during my searches for SHTF related things I came across a website of people selling land for bug out places. It wasn't just for selling land, but specifically for selling country land that would be good for bugging out to. The sellers listed the selling points in terms of how they would help you be self sufficient in case of a disaster. Anyone know the site I'm talking about? Or any similar ones? Any help is much appreciated folks. If ta'll'd like, I'll try and dump some post-apoc type art.

I think he actually meant County, not country.

Preppers and doomsday fanatics and theorists tend to be from the non-professional classes of North American society. While the tendency towards such thoughts is deeply ingrained in the culture due to the cold war era nuclear scare, successful and average people have in recent decades.

Today, many preppers and theorists indulge in the fantasy scenarios because they feel powerless in their current position in society. Making a low income, having a medium education in a stagnant or underpaid field if any at all, or without a career, they crave a change even if it comes at others' expense. Many also dream of having influence and power but are unable to attain it in modern society so resort to this in a similar fashion as Second Life and MMO addicts.

I prep and plan with friends. We find it fun and entertaining, even though we all realize the likelihood of actually needing any of our prepped shit is very low. But it's fun for us to plan where to go, what to do, what to bring, in various end-of-the-world scenarios.

depending how you prep it could actually be useful, ie the power grid goes down and you have 3 months of food stored for the EOTWAWK, you'll be much more full then your neighbor.

The reason it feels like it won't happen is because all major world changing events happened during a time when pretty much all nations and all their occupants were more or less self sufficient.

Now we are all connected and dependant on our machines and electricity. Every house is wired up, every person connected.

If events the size of the napoleonic wars were to happen in the 21st century, the outcome would be a collapse in modern society. Even a permenant loss of electricity to a nation could bring about a post-apocalyptic-type dystopia. Think about it, without power, society would be set back 200 years and since no-one in the modern world has ever lived in the beginning of the 19th century, our fractured society wouldn't be able to cope, the majority would be running about like headless chickens.

It's been a century since the beginning of the first world war, we've been meandering relatively peacefully through time for 70 years now. It could happen in 10 years, it could happen in 100 but it WILL happen and the longer we wait, the more dependant on electricity we become, the more fucked we'll be when someone does eventually decide to turn your power off. Whether it be because of war or because of lack of resources, it will happen.

It's only logical to prepare.
