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?

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."
As far as nukes, surprisingly "Duck and cover" is crazy effective. I know, it sounds like a fucking joke but I'm serious.

80% of the damage from nukes is from the heat and it has to have a line of sight. So if you're crouched behind a wall in its shadow, you're gonna be pretty good to go. If you're within the blast radius, though (the 20% of destruction) then you're fucked. But that's a relatively small radius, depending on the size of the nuke. Once the blast resides, cover your face and mouth with a wet cloth and move upwind of the blast or just really far away. After the blast then you worry about radiation and all that risk comes from the dust particles that become irradiated, and those are only dangerous if they get absorbed into your eyes or inhaled/ingested.

>NIOSH filters
>couple hours
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.

Good ol' water.

Alternator pumps out electric current which is used for electrolysis in a HHO cell to produce fuel on demand.
Fairly easy to build them yourself, or if you're not the DIY type, Dodge even has a from the factory HHO truck, I'd assume other manufactures also produce HHO vehicles.

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.

You're fucking retarded.

We already have technology to create nuclear "waste" plants that use nuclear waste to generate power and over time transform nuclear waste in regular old lead.

It's just that no one (the oil industry) wants to build it.

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 School 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.

I just finished watching The Road and The Postman. Alright /fo/ Your country along with the rest of the world is fucked. No way around it, people starving, rape killing, cannibalism, rouge bands of outlaws, militia groups, little to no gasoline. Just a cluster fuck. Assuming money is worthless and bartering is the norm.

I would probably join a militia of sorts, maybe as an officer. I have guaranteed food shelter and water and surrounded by people who want to protect themselves and what little they have.

So what is your overall plan to survive? Fuck off into the woods and live off the land? Travel from place to place trading? Have a good community to be with for protection?

Thankfully I grew up on a farm and I also know how to sail, I'm thinking that in a post-apocalyptic scenario with very little gasoline not many outlaws would be wasting their precious guzzoline roaming open waters looking for people to rape and pillage, I'm also think few if any bandits would know how to sail a ship

Well it's all about short term profits.

Exxon first cottoned on to climate change in 1981 if you want to know how long it's been a thing. Obviously they reacted as any company could and ploughed money into denial even as they knew it was true. Tinfoil would be saying there's anything beyond selfish greed on the part of old men behind it. Climate change has been a thing a long time. It was accepted as truth in the early 90s in most places. As I said though, the oil company board rooms knew long before that.
