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.

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:


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 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?

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.

Any good apocalypse ideas?
Trying to write a book, id like the following
>cold(like lows of 28 and highs of 50)
>green(forests, damp weather, ocean)
>SERIOUS survival(no excessive armor, aliens, zombies, flamethrowers or miniguns)
>fairly recent world ending(7 years?)

Yeah, a team of people are traveling through different parallel worlds and get stuck in Earth 203. A new Ice Age is just starting and their machine is broken.

So I got thinking even though it could almost never happen what would you do in a
>Vampire Apocalypse?
Rules are like this
>becoming a vampire can't make you smarter,
>becoming a vampire can make you stronger,
>no shapeshifting
>sunlight kills them
>Destroying the heart or brain kills them
>They get weaker and dumber the longer they go without blood
so what's your plan?

answer each question as if the world as we know it as ended.

"you come across someone who has made personal sacrifices in the past in order to help you get on your feet in a finicial struggle. now that society has completely collapsed he has come to you for help. in order to give him the bare minium he would need to survive it would deplete you supplies by 50% and you dont know when you will be able to replinish your supplies, would you be able to do for him what he did for and give him half of your supplies"

I'd invite him to join up with me on my quest or ask to join him on his. Teaming up would increase our survival prospects.

22 rifle. Very plentiful ammo, and lethal enough at long range for utility purposes.

If I'm on death's door too, I may go out in a blaze of vengeful wrath, but if I'm healthy enough to travel, I leave my son's corpse on his front stoop and leave for good.

One side of me says "take in all the girls, and give the boys some weapons and the boot. Girls are a lot easier to manage than boys, and only needing to feed (assuming) half of the kids will only reduce supplies by 25%. One or two boys might manage to survive, and if they ever make it back, we'll have kept their womenfolk safe and sound." The other side of me says "Take everyone is, find out who the most in-charge kid is, make him or her the working partner of the smartest kid, and have them ride shotgun over the rest of the rugrats. They can earn their keep by continuing to forage.

Left: I would confront the situation openly, when both friends were present and I knew both were unarmed. I'd demand to know the reason why someone needed to die, and I figure if the killer wont talk, maybe the victim will spill his guts to save his life.
Mid: Shelter, Food, Water, Weapons. Shelter because if I can't get out of the elements, none of the others will keep me alive for very long. Food because if I can't keep my strength up, the shelter is just a place to die. Water because when I have the tripod of shelter, food and water, I can build on it. Weapons because it's easier than having to make them from scratch, and if I could only choose three things, I'd leave the weapons behind.

Yes. I keep kits for handouts, it's part of my survival philosophy.


The shotgun. I have a .22 and a rifle elsewhere, the shotgun would be the most versatile thing to carry of those 3.


I would plot and carry out without hesitation that person's hellish demise.


Jesus fuck, that's a tough one. I'd say sure, tell them if they steal or do anything fucked up I will kick them out of the camp and they have to scavenge/hunt/do chores to earn their keep. Simple things, I'll try to teach them a few skills so they're more useful to have around too. Next generation's gotta survive.

op here, ill anwser a few then reply to some of yours

>first card
a plane would never get off the ground so this situation is kinda flimsy, id probably sacrifice my self (lol white knight) as im kinda fall on the grenade kinda guy. really would come down to heat of the moment

>first post
personal sacrifices when there was a well fare system is differnt then personal sacrifices after the end of the world. by handing out 50% of my supplies, which seems like an awful lot, ive just shortened my survival by that ammount. id likely help him, but not in a way id directly hamper my own survival.

>2nd card
quarantine. you cant have infection spread through the group and kill us all.

>2nd post
in my situation, seeing as i dont have a fire arm (or a bug out location to begin with) id likely be trading, how ever if i do have fire arms with surplus ammo i likely wouldnt be trading as id rather keep the food and water. if did trade the 12g is the most practical. 308 is heavy ammo that will take down a deer no problem but would likely destroy a squirl. a .22 is the other way, light but only head shots on deer to kill them. buck shot is a nice middle.

Are we from now on going to continue to assist one another to ensure both our survivals?

If so, totally. Double the man power, double the prosperity.

But if it's a "i'll take 50 percent of your provisions and be on my way!" thing, then you lucked out buddy.

First situation I land the plane in a body of water or begin singing Bohemian Rhapsody while I fly the plane directly into the funniest thing I see. Either we all survive or no one does.


Second situation I isolate them in the back of the trailer and throw them Tangy Tangerine and Water Filters. If they behave they can watch the entire box set of Seinfeld on my DVD player.


I stab the fucker and take his mints. And make ribs. Baby back ribs. From his ribs.


Train an orphan army. Obviously.

do you honestly think with everyone having nukes that nuclear war is going to occur? the fact that everyone has them, and they're hidden all over the place, is pretty much just an insurance policy. If anyone is stupid enough to use a nuke without the consent of many powerful ally nations, they would be ruined. Think about the consequences for a minute in a situation like that and I'm sure you would agree. there are far too many factors and intelligence gaps for something like that to just happen. if a budding smaller country, say, like iran, were to obtain nuclear arms, if they were too stupid to use it as a bargaining chip, then they would just wind up completely screwing themselves. then again, everybody would know it would only be used as a bargaining chip, because if they actually used it, then it would lead to the systematic dis-empowering of that nation. they would not longer be a sovereign state, and the country would be run by someone else, probably that the UN, US, or whomever seems to be the leader or figurehead chooses. basically, if you do anything with your nuclear weapons other than make threats, you're fucked in the ass.

You are correct, but you also forget that our governments are dysfunctional and sometimes very unwise individuals get a lot of power, in fact it seems such individuals have the biggest amount of influence and power ATM. Also nukes, have only been around for 50 smth years and their availability has increased greatly and only going to increase more. Big asteroids strike only a few times in millennia. We still have hundreds of years left. Do you think asteroids are more likely than nuclear turmoil? Plaque is not as serious with our current understanding of diseases and supervolcanos are extremely rare and cause tremendous damage only for part of the planet. I'd be more worried of the coming iceage, since our inter-glacier period supposed to have ended a long time ago. Plus it's the age of Aquarius, aren't we supposed to get flooded and shit? Or think about the collapse of the dollar and global economy which is prolly coming shortly. Now that's a very real and likely threat to our survival.

Most people say this but imo social power begins in the mind. If you were a loser pre-apocalypse I don't see why you'd be the shit post-apocalypse unless you have high proficiency in some skill that is very marketable in a post-apocalyptic world.

Serial killers and crazy fucks live just fine in this world, they'll get worse in the post-disaster one.


>The human population is so unsustainable that a dramatic death toll could quite possibly be very positive for the future of the species.

Nah, this is more overpopulation myth stuff. Most of human innovation is a product of the sheer amount of human brains on the planet exponentially increasing the probability of innovation. Necessity is the mother of invention and not having clean water is one hell of a motivator.

Statistically, armed populations have lower violent crime rates, assuming we're speaking for the regular Joe. Fact is, if people even think you might have a gun on you' they'll usually try to find a target who doesn't.

I will buy a house after I graduate college and get a steady job.
I live in the East Coast and I believe environmental factors will make my region uninhabitable.

Which is the best place to move and buy a house?

Where the weather will be tolerable.
Where there will be enough clean water for my lifetime.
Where there will be enough energy, renewable or otherwise.

I'd like a suggestion from both an American City and an international city.
What are your plans?

if the climate changes in one area it will effect the entire world. what once was a nice area with out tornados and blizzards might now have both but no longer suffer from blizzards. also the sea level will rise. this isnt as easy a question as you think.

Chances are it'll go back and forth. One year we'll get a lot of snow, another year we'll get really cold temperatures, another year will get both, and another year we'll get neither. Extremes are bound to get more extreme due to climate change, but it's nothing we can't handle.
