The fall of civilization is a total unknown factor. Outside of survival skills you cant guess how society could fail, because it could happen in an infinite number of ways. You cant ready your self for all of them.

Short of building a massive bunker and doing aurc oval training there is nothing you can do. Stop worrying and live your life.

Discuss please.

You are dumb. I'm no prepper and I agree their theories are dumb. However, different scenarios don't call upon different methods of preparation.

Regardless of what disaster cometh, you will ALWAYS need: food, water, shelter, protection, and an escape plan. By ensuring a supply of these, you're ready for just about anything.

as aggressive as ebola is, biologically speaking, it can only thrive in the worst of 3rd world conditions, because such an environment typically has not even the most basic sense of hygiene or other medical knowledge beyond 'people get sick because Magical Curses', which, last i heard, was a mentality that was very rampant among most continental africans.

I would be inclined to think that not even India or other parts of far-east asia, for all of its/their stereotyped poverty and overpopulation, is nearly as prevalent in its richness and variety of preventable diseases as most of africa is.

when faced with an environment of first or second world nations, such as america, europe, russia, china, or even brazil and argentina, i suspect that ebola cannot thrive because of ath the very least, the basic procedures of hygene and quarantine that would be implemented, if someone was exhibiting even remotely ebola-like symptoms, such as fever, bleeding from the orifices, numerous welts and sores, and nerve damage and epilepsy among other signs of violent illness.

hell, even with turn-of-the-century typical american medicine, ebola would be given a hard and long run for its money.

I just don't imagine any of you have any actual military experience or have ever been anywhere near to a survival situation outside of your fantasies.

Not that military experience is the only prerequisite to this, but it's one example and it seems like, besides hunters, they're maybe the only group of people with actual experience where a survival situation where education/know-how/toolkit would be necessary. The rest of you are just bored losers fantasizing about a societal breakdown so you can have excitement in your empty lives.

Pic related, they're what I call "Airsoft Veterans", grown men who take their roleplaying a little too seriously and have no sense of irony about how pathetic they are. It's the kind of person I think of when I skim these conversations in this board.

For sure, the mentality is a valuable thing too. You're drilled on that in training. Most people have weapons but when the time comes they freeze up because they haven't been put in that state intentionally then trained to react step by step. All soldiers get at least that. Most people will go "is this really happening oh god they're gonna kill me what do I do" a soldier hears their drill sergeant going "MAG OUT, MAG IN, RACK, AIM, FIRE" x3 or some variation.

Even still some greenhorns freeze up when they see shit happen even with training. Nothing beats experience and surviving a fight. It's well known in the military that the best knowledge comes from soldiers who went to battle and survived. Not got the most honors, kills, contributed the most to the mission, means nothing if they didn't make it back as far as knowledge.

It all comes back to survival.

No, Adult Swim was already a thing by then. Also the Venture Brothers is one of it's less cult shows. It topped the Amazon best sellers list a few times. If you've not seen that shit seek it out, it's awesome. The first series is a (still fun but the weakest series) satire of Johnny Quest and Scooby mostly but other stuff too, just all sorts of stuff. At the end of the first series you're like "where can they go with this now?" but somehow they start developing the characters and it gets better in season 3 it starts to grow the beard even though it's already good. This series manages to be as biting deconstructive as the Watchmen but hilarious. 10/10 when the fuck is series 6?

Just wondering if any of you guys garden or plan on taking up the trade in order to better prepare yourselves. I've never gardened before but I'm planning on starting one very soon, as soon as the piles of old ice and snow melts and the temperature starts resembling spring. I was planning on a companion garden, where you plant certain combinations of plants, flowers, shrubs, grasses, or other veggies next to your garden in order to attract natural predators that eat garden pests, and certain combinations promote healthier growth. If all goes well, I want to expand my garden into a landscaped permaculture garden.

I think gardening and growing your own food is extremely important, and a skill worth knowing. I feel we as people are losing our connection with the land we live on and the food we eat.

Thinking of post apocalyptic conditions, society is only not ruralized because of modern farming implements. If there's a significant drop in population, there's sociologically no way for society to be urbanized.
Power could center in urban concetrations, but the bulk of the population would have to be on the contryside for shit to work. Industrial revolution is the only reason it's not like this nowadays.

> Good luck finding a legitimate source of non-GMO corn
No it's not. The type of corn you want to grow is sweet corn. GMO sweet corn is rare. If you're planting a field, It's more difficult to find corn that you can allow to go to seed, and re-plant. That's a pre-GMO trick, and is beneficial because heterozygous corn (pairs a recessive gene with a dominant gene) grows better than homozygous. If you're planting a small plot, then it's easy to find whatever corn you want.

A three sisters garden is pretty awesome. It's corn, beans and squash. They are grown close together. The corn acts like support, the beans replenish soil and the squash blocks out weeds' light.

i agree, jumping off the deep end and going all-in on the little details all at once is gonna piss you off and burn you out real fast.

if you still want to get hot and heavy into it as a hobby for now, or for growing food or spices, your best bet would be to do weed mulching, compost piles, and possibly manure fertilization.... also, observing and mimicking nature is going to go a very long way towards helping you.

Hey /FO/,

I don't frequent this board so forgive me if this post isn't in the right spot or doesn't follow conventions, but I thought this would be the place to go to get some answers.

I'm writing an article for an independent news/music website titled Prepare for Doom. The topic is disaster preparedness and people's fear of extinction events. Every time there's a disease scare (SARS, H1N1, Ebola) there's a spike in the purchase of hazmat suits, respirators and other survival gear.

I'm hoping to speak with a self-professed "prepper" or survivalist to learn more about their mindset and what measures they've taken to be prepared for an apocalypse event. I don't know how to go about this really, seeing as how you can't give out contact info on here. I guess I will just post the questions here, so any and all can just jump in with their answers. I will gladly credit you in the article.

Your answers can be short, but I'd prefer if you elaborated on things rather than just give one-two word answers. Ok here we go:

1) How long have you considered yourself a "prepper" and what was the main cause for the start of this behavior?

2) What, in your opinion, will be the most likely cause for an apocalyptic/human extinction event? (Disease, war, AI, invasion etc)

3) What measures have you taken to make sure you're prepared?

1) How long have you considered yourself a "prepper" and what was the main cause for the start of this behavior?

>ive been a (an attempted) prepper for about 10 years now, and the main cause, if anything, was the slow realization of many things concerning history, economics, philosophy, government, and the realization that that when the chips are down, the citizenry will eat each other, and any government that is left over, will be more likely to start collecting and cataloging anyone they can round up (by force), fleece them of anything the local prison guards desire, and then soon enough, put the citizenry in front of a firing squad. History shows that it has happened before, and thus, it is guaranteed and inevitable to happen again, regardless of how many people foresee it and try to prepare against it or act to delay or prevent it. The only questions are when, where, the details of how, done by whom, and done to whom.

2) What, in your opinion, will be the most likely cause for an apocalyptic/human extinction event? (Disease, war, AI, invasion etc)

>well, i don't know about 'extinction' of the entire human race, but from the various news articles and such that ive been seeing, im inclined to suspect that America as a nation is being lined up to get kicked in the snizz box something fierce, from atleast afew countries, and in more than afew ways. I would say that the closest thing in my current conception would be a nuclear war of some sort, be it the 'classic' nuclear war between nations, or the 'mobile terrorist' suitcase and truck-van hot and dirty nuclear smudge bombs that are making inroads into the realm of the possible and likely.

3) What measures have you taken to make sure you're prepared?

>well, im more or less poor, but ive prepared however i can get away with. I shop for/buy camping gear and military surplus whenever i can afford to get away with it. Surprisingly, ive come fairly far in getting the basics (the ten C's of survival).


4) How much money have you spent on your preparations? A considerable part of your annual income?

1) I have been a prepper ever since the combinations of post Cold War life, 2001 terror attacks, and being a freshman in high school in 1998. A lot of people asked me what I would do if Columbine happened t my school, and then the terror attacks of 2001 got the question of, "What would you do?" became normalized in pop culture.
2) I personally believe, as I have ever since I was fourteen, that apocalyptic/extinction level conditions will be caused by mankind.
3) I have made sure I can walk for long distances while carrying absurd weights for years when I wasn't homeless. I also carried necessaries for outdoor survival in extreme conditions regardless of current weather, etc. I also make sure that I continue working out, taking hikes on the trails and such here in town for hours with different disciplines (don't drink water for an hour, don't drink more than x amount of water per water break, etc.), and I still climb a tree every so often.
4) My current preps were refined when I was homeless, out of necessity, so I have never spent much. I rely mostly on ingenuity and pluck to make it in weird situations. The costliest thing I have is a sometimes endless supply of positive morale.
5) I know others who share my concerns, but we don't consider ourselves a community. We are friends.
6) I have been taught to be, in the words of the Bridge Burners, to be wide eyed stupid in every situation and event in case of any situation or event. To me, apocalypses and extinction level events are not something humanity will recognize very far out but something extremely sudden.
7) Survivalism is, for me, part of my day in a lot of ways. Brushing my teeth allows me the ability to not have rotting teeth at inopportune times. Exercise, diet, and preventative measures are all there to survive mini disasters in my regular day. If those mini disasters are survived on a regular basis, and not when other disasters are occurring, then it's a good day. If some other disaster occurs with one of these mini daily disasters, such as my grandmother have a panic attack during a hurricane with a history of heart attacks and other heart disease, then I'll know what to do if both of those unlikely …

1) All of of my life i've been an avid outdoors entusiast and survivalist, but the older I grew and the more I learned about history, war, technology and geopolitics, the more those skills began to feel imperative. I was without means to "prep," as such until about 2005.

2) Combination of changing climates and scarcity of the fossil-fuels whose burning accelerates them. Nuclear Winter as a result of escalating aggression russia the usa, n korea and china. A super-virus is innevitable but is on no certain time-frame, though the anti-vaccination echo chambers are certainly not helping prevent it.

3) Training in local fire-building, geography/flora/fauna, pioneering, hiking, cartography, orienteering, medicine, climbing, rifles, shotguns, handguns, bows, sailing, rowing, canoeing, s.c.u.b.a., MMA, languages seealso, bug-out bag >>13685 plus a tough vehicle, a very fast vehicle and concussive body armor

4) Under $500 worth of gear, unless you count vehicles or like park fees for hiking and stuff

5) 10 years ago nearly everyone I ever met would scoff at the concepts covered in your OP, now people seem to be vastly more hep to existing conditions which justify preparations. Still, i've only even met a few people who do more than acknowledge that they should "stock water or something." In fact the few who are quite prepared, really need to be any way, as they live in a part of the country where no one else lives, there are no power lines, no gas or water mains.

6) I don't believe anything. The answer to how soon it could start is oh hey, >>13811 already inb4'd me! i like this guy. I guess this is an opinion question, but I don't have much of an answer. I'm more concerned with where I live collapsing in on itsself, and that could go down whenever. Worldwide.. seems like we've been in ww3 for years now. About to update myself on some of the more recent russian stuff here in a minute.

Assuming you also have the clothes on you back, and the scenario is collapse of society, I'd say you're pretty well off.

That shovel is a tool, a weapon, and your shelter. Break into places, dig into shit, and whack people around. Dig a hole in the ground to sleep, or lean it against a tree and cover it with branches for a makeshift roof. Your tuna might've gone bad, but that doesn't mean you can't just leave it behind. Use it as bait to attract animals, then beat the shit out of them with your shovel. That can can be used for storing stuff, and if you bend the lid a bit you can make a makeshift arrowhead. Before you use that book for wiping your ass or tinder, read the hell out of it. You might as well be married to the people you're surviving with. Knowing when they're going to turn on you is crucial, so you can turn on them first. That microwaved DVD is hardly just a slab of disfigured silicon; it's your one and only plate. So what there's a hole in it, go cry about it to someone who cares. And when it breaks, make sure you pick up all the pieces. They'll come in handy for when you need to stab someone. And finally, that toothpick. How many times have you looked around on the ground for a stick to poke something with? Well, don't worry about that anymore, because you've got the best poking twig around now. Other survivors will spread tales of you and your trusty poking twig, while they all stumble around with bent pieces of branch or pine needles.

You've got a good thing going for you, 8/8.

8/8 IN-FUCKING-DEED.

This nigga just made the team. Analysts are determining whether we should kidnap you and hold you for use with the team, or whether it would be best to lure you inside by your own will with the smells of delicious pizza.

Anyone else "prepping" for the end not because you feel like its coming, but because you wish it would?

Like I'm doing nothing with my life and the only way I would ever get out of my mundane "blue collar" existence is if society collapsed. I don't even have any hobbies I just try to keep myself entertained with TV and video games.

So I prepare for the end, just hoping it comes and whisks me away to a more interesting life.

Hell, I have medical problems and my teeth are rotting out of my head so I probably wouldn't last more then a year or two.

Quick prep question for some of you, is it fine to put pinto beans in a sanitized, food grade 5 gallon bucket like this one(below), with at least 2000 cc oxygen absorbers:

http://www.lowes.com/pd_356492-1152-50640_0__

Will it keep it's 30 year or so shelf life just with that? I've heard people talk about mylar bags, but it'd be a lot easier if I could just dump the 30 pounds of bean in a bucket and throw an oxygen absorber in there.

Buckets like that always end up with mold in the corners, Even my brewing bins after a complete sterilization end up with mold within a few weeks

I'd suggest that bucket with a mylar bag tied tight around it.

Without the air circulation prevention then you will end up with mold, There's no two ways about it.

If you can't get your hands on mylar bags then a windoless and dry basement could work for a while but no where near as long as actually just segregating your food from the air.

I actually hear this all the time from people at my workplace. They wish something bad would happen so that they could have meaning in their lives. But just sit down and think about it. Do you really want to deal with an apocalyptic world?

actually, ide rather deal with a star trek sort of world; friendly aliens, new technology to the masses, the nearly absolute end of war and poverty, exo-solar-system space travel measured in months to weeks, instead of months to years.....

am i crazy to want that sort of thing ?

I had a few questions.

>Is this a serious threat? They're already testing people in Sacramento for possible exposure.
>In the event of a mass outbreak, what's the best course of action? I'm assuming head for the most secluded place you can find and trench in, try to keep your area clean and shoot anyone who get's too close to your camp. Ebola spreads through contact, if I remember correctly, so isolation seems best.
>What should be added to a bug-out bag to prepare for Ebola or other viral situation. I'm assuming chlorine sprays, disinfectants and protective gear, but what else?

Op here, surprised the thread is still up. Did we survive? Is there going to be an ebola-round-two: Electric Boogaloo?

i agree with the above 2 posts.

Ebola, from what i've casually read around on about it, is a flash in the pan disease, that for all of its horror and epic destructive capabilities to the human body, cannot generate any staying power in the face of even the absurdly basic (euro-american) turn of the century 'wash your hands with soap or bleach, wear a mask and scrubs around sick people, and boil contaminated stuff' level of medical precautions and quarantine procedures.

Therefore, Ebola CAN ONLY be at all effective and lethal against primitive tribals who are among the poorest of the poor, who live in tightly enclosed slums, and have no real medical knowledge of any kind. This means that only 3rd and 4th world countries and populaces are susceptible to having Ebola and other similar plagues sweep through an area and kill 8 out of 10 people.

in america or europe, the most that ebola could do, was to infect maybe adozen people, before being quite effectively brought under control in its early symptom stages.

/ end ?

Unless bughunters decide to smuggle it in an organized, orgiastic effort to raise Ebola awareness by helping others in first and second world nations develop the illness.

true, but then that would probably fall under the purview of 'dubious actions of the (american ?) government ' ..... then again, there's no accounting for how naively stupid the american majority is, especially these last few generations.
