Zombies Outbreak Theory Mutated Rabeis? by James Shakedock - Sun, 08 Feb 2015 17:03:55 EST ID:81XeMxba No.13749 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Like many of you may or may not know about that guy who got high on bath salts and ate a mans face was unaffected by bullets after being shot several times.

The list actually continues there was on even where zombie like people have ate people there was this one case where one man went batshit crazy and bit off the side of a persons neck and he bled to death as before cops had to shoot him but he didnt last as long as the other guy did

There was a huge viral outbreak in 2012 in south america and florida

and we do know certain rabies can infect only one type of thing
like animals for example..there is absolutely no cure and you have to put them down by shooting them in the brain

So my "logical" theory of a zombie outbreak is that rabies would mutate and end up infecting people
HOWEVER like ALL living beings these "zombies" would require food water and sleep it is absolutely impossible to live without a source of nutrition it defies biology

Now lets say how it will spread? One of my theories

lets look at the world right now...its complete and utter shit right?

MREs are godawful haha holy shit.

A trick you can use is mixing a little baking soda with the stuff, makes it easier to handle for some reason but MREs are loaded with preservatives and dessicants, takes forever for your body to digest them, I knew a guy who would mix them up with water and make gross soup/smoothie type things because if it's just a hard lump in your stomach OP pic related will happen.

If bugging in, can't beat canned food for the price. Just keep your pantry stocked and rotated. If looking for dehydrated food just buy mountain house, yeah it's a little pricey but it actually tastes ok and has a decent amount of calories.

Remember to invest in a good stove and water filter. Stockpile fuel and water too. Dehydrated food is useless if you can't boil water. You can't light a campfire everywhere.

IMO you should really only worry about provisions with a storage time of 10 years and forget rotating altogether. It's stupid to rotate when instead of doing that you can just eat healthy, have a garden and make money while society still works then when the supplies have 1 year left just donate them all to a soup kitchen and buy a new 10 year stock.

Less hassle.

Citizens executed more cops for the LuLz in NV than MO did for justice.
Was honestly amazed that something finally got humans off their couches in any state. Bout 20-30mins after i posted this, i watched the whole mob follow cops to to a bridge overpassing a highway, then the people flooded down the sharp cut valley to the highway below and immediately get themselves surrounded by the fuzz.
fkn retards.

Theyve been out in force up here on the rim of LV, surprised i haven't seen any MRAPs.

In summerlin last year I saw a house get raided by SWAT come to think of it and there were. they took like 3 MRAPs 4 Hummers and 2 paddywagons to freakin one house across the street. Head the breach, and a ton of noise and lights, for about 30 seconds, then about enough time to toss the house/loot it, then quietly drove away.

actually i should have that on video somewhere. i was posted on top of the gate to my neighborhood, bout 15' up. i wonder..

This kind of thing really upsets me. I believe there are good cops out there, and I appreciate the police that aren't corrupt, but weapons of fucking war do not belong on domestic fronts and it's hard to argue with people saying we're a police state when you see occurrences like this.

  3. >all these protesters should be shot.

Hoping you were too rageface/wasted to read or didnt bother to after seeing that Ferguson ish on /FO/, and I would be too. SJayW shit is usually included or responded with topics like this. Rest assured, I'm not protesting for civil rights or cop rights. These problems are taking care of themselves. On the off chance the events incited wider unrest I posted the stream link when it went down for others to see.

just in case you still have no fucking idea im saying, here's a video on the vegas thing. The one I said was for LuLz not justice.
as far as I know mobs didnt execute any of the fascist forces in MO, an easily justifiable scenario esp for a mob. That's 0 justice MO, 2 for the fuck of it Vegas. They may have had some sorta reason. "white supremacy," as mentioned in the news, doesn't sound like a reason to shoot 2 white people, they were just tweaking.

Hey, /fo/
after playing through The Last of Us, I feel like if the world when post-apocalyptic, regardless of the cause really, the situation would be very similar to that of the world depicted, with the general environment & government declaring martial law with quarantines and whatnot. Do you think this would be the case, or some other fate? Would the government even have any interest in keeping their grasp on America or would it simply crumble and the world would have a no-man's land approach? What are your guys' thoughts?

I wonder if the last grasps of governments and organizations won't be as futile as we always imagine. I agree that looting, rioting, and general pillaging would be inevitable, but it's human nature to attempt to thrive through organized systems of civilizations. I imagine no country will remain unscathed, but if the standing armies can rally well enough to provide protection, people will flock to their safety.

Well I figure there will still be societies and I would assume still armies but I would wonder if the armies instead of making relief zones, would just help their own and leave citizens to fend for themselves. Because without a working government an army is just people without direction more or less.

>>A nuke couldn't take down all electronics, The EMP has a blast range that is similar to the the kill zone of a nuke.

I think 72 years of testing and documentation disagrees. EMP does not have a "blast range", it's electromagnetic energy, it doesn't have any explosive energy. It travels until it is dissipated.

Yield is not a mitigating factor when EMP is concerned, as shown in various tests such as Argus, Teak, Orange, Yucca, Starfish Prime, ect...

Starfish Prime was a 1.4MT W49 nuclear warhead on a MK.II reentry vehicle launched over Johnston Atoll via a Thor Missile. The missile reached an altitude of 680mi upon where the Mk.II was separated from the Thor Missile and allowed gravitational reentry into the atmosphere, At an altitude of 250mi during it's downward trajectory the W49 warhead was detonated over Johnson Atoll.

The detonation destroyed communications links, lighting, and other electrical services in Honolulu and various other Hawaiian Islands 900mi away.

>>A 1 megaton nuke would destroy any electronics within 4 miles, and damage electronics within a 10 mile radius.Which is similar to the 1 week kill zone of a 1 megaton bomb.Basically if it destroys your phone.

A nuclear device doesn't have a "kill zone", unless you're referring to the "Fireball Radius" which has no baring on the EMP.

Timely, since I went through a four day blackout last week. Since I'm on a well, no power = no water. I got some toilet flushing water by draining the water heater and fetching water from a nearby lake, and bought a huge jug of spring water to drink and brush teeth. Some stores had generators including one supermarket and all of the gas stations.

My Internet connection ceased to function on the second day and we lived on cell service (which stayed operational the whole blackout). We charged our things with batteries from the truck with an inverter whenever we drove anywhere.

We lost $150 of food in the fridge and our phone bill is probably going to be over $9000 from internets usage. We had to take sponge baths (which aren't that bad actually) but I couldn't wash my hair.

Good times. At least it didn't happen in February.

Running sneakers or work/combat boots.

Running shoes are nice because they're slight and come off quickly, which could mean the difference between life and death.

Boots will help you cross most terrains easier, they're tied to your feet, they generally grow up higher, so no getting bitten in the Achilles's tendon, oh, and they'll last a million years if they're the right brand.

I go with boots, but I'm biased since I wear them every day of my life to begin with.

Does anyone have experience or interest in building off-grid tiny homes? They are usually 100-300 sq/ft. made of found and recycled materials cheaply. Some run on solar and wind power. I work a part-time job and I'm thinking of starting a tiny house project. I can buy some materials and there's plenty of scrap around me to use. I have some carpentry skills and general know-how. Anyone interested in the tiny, minimal, cheap life?

Outdoor toilet won't pollute a spring c-mon. Winter being cold I agree, but that's better IMO than building toilets, plumbing, shit rezervuars under the house etc.

You sound like you live in NYC or smth. Well I'm in EU and in our countryside so our paradigms aer a little different.

close, upstate ny. but you are right our situation are differnt. first off, im probably only 10 feet over the water table, id likely be going for a well... id rather not haw my sewage leaking into my drinking water even if i am filtering.

so every time you plan to take a shower in the summer you are going to heat a giant thermal mass? sounds a little silly.

im going to again suggest looking into composting toilets. if you are willing to shit into a hole in the ground you could at least consider a diy system where you just shit in a bucket and thow saw dust ontop then throw it out side in the compost heap youre likely to have. this beats shitting out side imo. but really how far back are you willing to go for a palce you plan to call home. what sort of investment and return do you want on this 10k in 3 years of lving? yea shit in a hole in the ground. if you plan on living here and investing money into this place for a distant future do not skip on the luxuries as a porcelain throne is wonderful after only 3 days of shitting in a porta-potties. maybe this makes me sound like some nyc yuppie, but its also what ive realized about what my build would need. you are totally fine with doing what you do we are just discussing ideas in general. i dont mean to come off as offensive or demeaning either, i enjoy this topic and would love to hear other peoples ideas on what to do as seeing as i havent even done it i dont know the best way my self

for those who go full-in-the-bag with this, as in no other property assets, I wonder what they do about costs for electricity and internet and water and bathing, but most of all funds for health emergencies (if you play to live past 65 then you will encounter them) and retirement.

It's almost revolutionary to do this

most people have a set of skills that allows them to do this ie being an artist or crafts person in traditional trade lets you make a good ammount of money with little over head. it also doesnt mean you cant have a traditional job. your home life i none of your bosses bussiness imo. they could even chop and sell wood from their land or even let people hunt it many options to make money to be honest. some people even host work shops on green building to show case what they do in order to raise funds.

most of this thread is talking about green energy (and poop). out side the cost of the equipment, panels pumps turbines ect, and replacing these there isnt much over head to these places. ive been talking a little bit about. the life style changes people will have to make.

you do have some over head, taxes and what not but most people are talking about growing their own food.

although you are correct, most people will not be able to do this on min income with out savings set aside and they will run into emergencies where they need money.

fun fact: in a properly built outhouse (or portapotty) if everyone closes the lid, all the smell vents out through that little chimney on top.

earthships have a pretty good water design, it goes drinking-[rock and plant filter]->showering/washing-[rock and plant filter]->toilet-[rock and plant filter]-> out into a leechfield lined with waterproof membrane, this water is used to sustain landscape plants and eventually makes its way back into the water table.

all this implies staying in one spot though.... if it were really a post-apoc scenario and you were moving around all the time i'd just stick with a camper, or if you insist on traveling in style, rig up a toilet that dumps to the street for emergencies.
