I'm going to start collecting videos and books of how-tos on a ton of survival info. From basic first aid to complex surgeries, car repairs, navigation, weather. Almost anything I can think of. I think 1tb should be more than enough.

I figure all you need is a power source and you can charge whatever, a car on the side of the road will charge your phone/laptop/tablet. Plus you can transfer it around on USBs. The only downfall I can see is something breaking, but at that point, you'd have already copied it multiple times.

Ideally you'd want to keep an archive of free software so you can easily repair and modify your systems in the event of the companies falling by the wayside. This could be doubly beneficial in the event that you live in a post apocalyptic community. Free software could easily be made to preform new duties like starting a distributed meshnet for the sake of data redundancy.

Is meat man a cannibal? If I met a kind stranger offering to give me meat with an armed group of individuals behind them I'd be very intimidated and likely to act out of impulse. The idea of dining on randomly gifted food with the stranger(s) who gave it seems like a bad way to get yourself poisoned or drugged.

Should initial confrontation with meat man go smoothly and no serious tensions with him or his possible rag tag meat crew arise then a possible coexistence could be fruitful, especially if meat man is willingly eager to prepare fresh game or even cook/smoke meat. This unique figure feeding the meat crew would potentially allow them to explore while he defends the meat camp.

The meat man never intentionally eats human, and has never known to eat any.
He usually gets meat straight from the animal and uses pickling and canning techniques
to ensure it lasts a long time for all to enjoy.

The company he keeps are generally good people, but he isn't a selective person and
is bound to his goal of providing healthy, fresh meat to all the wasteland.

There are dangers, however with wild carnivorous animals attracted to meat man, but his
pack of once-feral dogs that enjoy his meats usually keeps him entirely safe.
This has, however limited his meat options because he likes his dogs and considers them
companions too much to ever serve their meat.

Youre looking at steven, he used to live with a large settlement in oregon where he was the head grower. That settlement was hit by a hostile groups raiding party, so he took all the seeds he could fit in his backpack and started his own operation in the mountains. He lives a loneley life however, and he is looking for someone to chill with. Hes mostly down for whatever and has a sizable farm where he trades quality unirradiated bud for supplies.

I recently chilled with a buddy of mine that's a survivalist and he really liked the coat I had (pic related, tried to get the best shot I could of the pockets). It has a waterproof zipper on the front and some hidden pockets on the inside. Anyways, he mentioned maybe putting some velcro on those inside pockets to make them more secure for running and it got my mind moving. Any other ideas on making this jacket better in case society falls apart? I'm personally kicking around trying to incorporate a hood I can attach with a zipper or something for harsher weather. Also, I guess general tactical/apocalypse fashion thread.

Imagine if you will that due to some governmental fuckups, your country is facing potential food riots and maybe even famine some time after March 2019.
You don't want to buy in bulk or obvious emergency ration products as that would draw attention- living in an urban area there are often many stranger's eyes on you.

I know that everybody preps for scenario 2 because, let's face it, guns and ammo and abandoned building are way more fun than surveillance and wage-slavery

But really it feels like scenario 1 is what "post-apocalyptic" looks more like in today's context. how the fuck do you prepare for *that*?

Now since this is a drug board.

What drugs do you take with you? I'd set up a mobile meth lab and be meth'd out constantly, and have a hydro grow set up for weed and opium in the RV. A little bit of meth keeps the mind sharp and the paranoia extreme. Good for this situation I'd say.

So what's your best, or favored survival weapon? If shit hits the fan, what will you keep by your side at all times, relying on it to save your ass?

It could be a gun, a blade, something blunt, maybe even think outside the box here. Perhaps it's your car. The point is to pick one thing which you would choose first as a weapon to survive an apocalypse.

Now just to clarify, this is a total SHTF apocalypse. There are zombies, thermonuclear blast sites, biological weapons released, natural disasters, fucking total anarchy everywhere. Things like bullets might be in short supply unless you've got your own personal ammo dump. Forget about raiding a nearby military base, it's almost definitely either heavily fortified and in use already or completely annihilated. You might have some luck in private shops or homes, but ammunition is going to be a bit scarce, especially since in such a world it will become so valuable.

Gas stations won't be up and running for the most part. You may have to find other means of transportation. Think about how this impacts the type of weapon you select. Things like weight, conspicuousness, extra moving parts that need to be carried are all important factors.

Think about concealment. Or alternatively, intimidation. Would you do better hiding the fact that you're armed? Or would walking through a town lugging a fully automatic machine gun speak more to your style?

Think about alternative uses for your weapon. What else can it be used for? Could you chop things with it? Dig perhaps? There's a lot to consider and you only get to pick one.

My choice? A khukri. I'm not saying it's everyone's best choice but it works for me. I prefer being sneaky, inconspicuous, quiet and not having to rely on scavenging for ammunition on top of food and other supplies means more time saved. Sure it's not nearly as reassuring as a rifle, but so long as I stick to the shadows and keep my head down I'll be fine.

I'm not very strong and am somewhat short, the khukri's design capitalizes on the laws of physics, giving you a lot of slicing power for very little kinetic input. A swift flick of the wrist and someone loses an arm. Or a head. Gunshots are loud, they attract attention and can be difficult to direct in a crazy situation if you don't have prior training. Sure you might have gone to the shooting range every weekend for ten years but are you sure you won't piss yourself and freeze up as an undead horror comes screeching at you full speed, mutated face pustules throbbing, fangs eager to eat your flesh? Now in that scenario you might be saying "well fuck, I'd rather have a gun than have to get anywhere close to something like that" and I would say you're probably right. However, there's just something primal about holding a big blade in your hand. It feels right and in a fight or flight response, the first instinct is sometimes to swing violently at your target. With a blade, that will work just fine.

A khukri can do more, it can chop firewood, it's easy to keep sharp and if I really have to it can be a decent digging tool (though it'd probably be fucked up after I used it for that). It makes a prime hunting knife but since I'm more of a trapper and a forager, hunting wild game with a knife isn't going to be a big concern.

Feel free to tell me why I am wrong/retarded/doublejolly african-american etc.

So /fo/, choose your weapon.

I wouldn't say that it's more important, but it is a lot more difficult to acquire after SHTF than before, than a firearm is likely to be. If we're playing that game though, optics, especially night vision gear, should take priority. The most dangerous enemy is the one you don't see.

Those from Heaven to Earth Fell. The replicants being a genetic creation like man in the Annunaki myth.

The Owl of Minerva is Tyrell Corps Logo. The intro scene where Deckard is flying over the flaming spires of LA is called Hades for some reason. However I find this strange as having personally been to Hades I can confirm that there are towers of flame. Ridley is an interesting character. He also uses metaphor to express this idea again in Alien: Covenant.
