Fuck yeah! Thanks for reminding me of this badass spear chucker! I used to work as a historical interpreter for a federal run Native American mound site and we got to use atlatls to show kids just how far you can throw a HUGE spear with one of these things! The aiming was always wonky but usually went close to where you wanted it, the real use of these was when you had 5 to 10 guys slinging those spears as fast as they could at one meal target.

I hate that spear chucker is a racial epithet because it was really a deadly style of hunting at the time. Still is today, but I can't imagine state hunting laws would allow you and 10 of your buddies to sneak up on a hog and hurl spears at it.

As the title says, I'm in the Army trained as a Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) Specialist. Essentially we're the insurance policy of the military. They train us to survive fight, and conduct research in contaminated environments. We then go to our units to keep survival gear (MOPP suits and masks) in order and train those soldiers to fight and survive (long enough to get out) of those environments.

Any questions about that stuff?

As a chemist, we use North 76008 or 3M 6000 series - both full face and are required beside our sides when we work with chlorine or bromine in the laboratory. They filtered out a spill of chlorine:bromine very well a while back. to the point where my lab coat and hair smelled insanely of chlorine after we cleaned the spill. We also haven't replaced the carbon NIOSH OV filters in a year and they still filter out most shit.
$160 and the filters are only $50 for two pairs.

That's mainly for phosphorous and sulfur mustards, right? Easily oxidizable so you can use either Hydrogen Peroxide or any bleach?

What exactly goes on in the minds of the brass in CBRN? As a 35G I've never felt like my CBRN training was very comprehensive, in basic or after. I mean I know the basics, but I just feel like CBRN isn't covered as well or as extensively as it could/should be. Especially with the concerns surrounding terrorism being our main focus rather than foreign conventional armys.

I still can't get my mask on in under 9 seconds. I feel like CBRN isn't something that's really at the front of soldier's minds in other MOSs.

Okay my exact notes say
"Bleach good for blister and V agents, fair for biological. Ethylene Glycol is fair for chemical agents"

Yeah but chlorine gas as an industrial spill or WMD is incredibly dense, which is why it sinks to the ground so fast. Our mask filters will clog within a couple hours.

We're kind of like the redheaded step-child of the Army. They HAVE to feed us but only because it's the law. So most units will do what they can to not do chemical training. By regulation, you should be doing full MOPP training once a year including weapon qualification. Realistically, my NCO told me to throw away all my training JSLIST because it's just taking up space and we haven't trained once in the 3 years before I got there.
You should have your mask on in less than 7 seconds, not 9. But truth be told, an additional 3-5 seconds isn't going to get you killed if you can hold your breath that long. The decon agents work fast if you have them on hand, but if you don't have them ready, then putting the mask on in just 2 seconds won't make a difference. It's a whole process to decontaminate yourself effectively and fast, and part of that process is having all the gear nearby ready to go. And because all that gear is incredibly expensive, the Army prefers to keep it locked up and safe.
pic semi-related. All we really exist for is to clear people when they PCS/ETS. This is on my office door.

Not really my area, as far as being captured goes. I've never been captured or had training outside of "Hey, don't talk to the bad guys if they capture you."

Yeah, that's what it is. I suppose I've just never needed to stay in a chlorinated environment for more than 5 minutes MAX. The masks are great for that but not when you need to stay for much longer.

Apart from fake physically impossible bullshit...

Gasoline engines can be adapted to run on ethanol. AFAIK many European cars are already adapted to run on E85, which is 85% ethanol.

diesel engines can run on many fuels with little to no modification. They can run on many different kinds of vegetable-based oils.
Rapeseed oil used to be a common substitute for diesel in my country because of high fuel taxes. (Bonus: the exhaust smells like someone cooking up french fries kek :) )

provided you have the ability to grow plants that produce oil and the machinery to extract said oil, you'll have a stable and versatile fuel source on your hands that you can use for vehicles, electricity and pouring on your salad.

Modern nuclear power is much safer in terms of accidents. We don't use graphite in control rods anymore, so they don't cause the opposite of the intended effect. Even then, Chernobyl was idiocy, and the experiment that led to the disaster wasn't cleared by the plant manager's bosses.

Still, nuclear waste isn't safe no matter how technology we get.

There are Breeder Reactors, in particular Liquid Fluoride Thorium Breeder Reactors, which transmute some of the existing byproducts of current reactors, and are much safer.
But they are nowhere near production ready and they don't "run on the waste" of existing reactors: They either are used to process existing waste or produce energy. I suppose a combination of both is theoretically possible if you sacrifice efficiency but it's nowhere near as awesome as you made it out to be.

From what I understand the US, UK, and Russia have all reached peak oil, however lots of the world hasn't yet. Still though, I think that's because oil companies include shale oil they get from fracking, which in the long run doesn't work out. Long story short if peak oil isn't here already, it's coming real fuckin soon. (Source: uni ES classes)

I've always wondered why the go-to for tiny meme houses is shipping containers instead of dumpsters. Shipping containers are surprisingly expensive, and you have to call a manufacturer of them to get one since shipping companies re-use them until they fall apart.

Dumpsters, though, fuck it. Go to a demolition site and just steal one. They have wheels, even! And they're thicker-walled, and not that small. Even smaller dumpsters for apartment buildings and restaurants would make decent shelters if you got a few of them and joined them somehow, and you can transport them much more easily.
