I'm back. I'm still working on getting down to two percent body fat and making myself an elite survivalist while preparing for any hostile scenario; zombies included. Ask me whatever you want and it will be answered by an expert.
Hey, I'm not going to jump to any conclusions yet. But I want more details on your training/diet schedule you've set out for yourself during your training period and why. I will give you a little background on me. Male 26yrs old. Been in the military for over 9 years. Army. Originally Air Assault Infantry then Combat Medic then Radio, Satellite and Computer Communications and I've had the pleasure of working and learning aside Psychological Operations, Navy Seals, Snipers, Generator and Auto Mechanics. I decided I was going to learn as much from the Military as I could for unforeseen survival purposes. Outside of the military I am a licensed Paramedic, with degrees in I.T. and Business Management<--Don't ask got bored. And I am a Bladesmith. I have trained in martial arts since I was 6 went golden gloves in boxing, second degree black belt in Taekwondo a black belt in Karate and then I went to MMA where I learned mainly Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Judo. I have several friends in the medical profession including a Nutritionist, Sports Therapists, Two Surgeons and the a personal trainer<-- kinda sorta medical. In my free time I do enjoy Urban Exploring and varied sports from rock climbing, scuba diving and even parkour/free running. I am one of the very very lucky few that not only has been able to train myself to extreme measures but have gotten to experience some real shit (two tours in Iraq accumulating just shy of 3 years over seas). Now not many people have had the chances I have to accumulate such a variety of real world training and experience. And I want to point out to EVERYONE that every single human is different... yeah for the most part we are alike and in general react the same way to disease, dehydration, exhaustion, starvation etc. But all handle it differently to one degree or another. So I want to know what you have laid for a training/diet schedule and why. In regards specifically to training yourself. What are your specific goals you are trying to accomplish with said diet/training.
I haven't been training in almost a year now; at least not how I was but I plan on going back to it this coming year. Honestly, one of the biggest reasons I'll admit right now is I wanted to be at 2-4% functionally to win American Ninja Warrior. A possibly daft goal to others but one I feel I can make happen. I want this and have other goals but one of those other goals was to be the best me I could be. That definition has changed over this last year in some regards but not completely. Your training is fantastic if it's everything you typed so I want to answer at length. I'll post again later tonight after compiling the information for you and thank you for your detailed opinion and listing of your training.
This doesnt even work here, but I thought it was pretty cool
It's pretty self explanatory if you take the time to read it. Pick your two favorite weapons from this list of adapted icons. These choices may later be supplemented with more gear, but who knows....
Pick 2 weapons, tell why.
Personally I can't see any of these being strictly practical against Undead Hordes, and could in fact even harm the user in the wrong circumstances.
I would most likely go with The Tentacle for reusable, reliable range damage and environmental manipulation, and the Hatorri Hanzo Katana, if only as a performance buff.
But hey, that's just me.
Depending on whether I'm in a position to settle somwhere or if I need to keep moving (I live in NJ dso my mind leads me to the latter), I'd either go with the monkey staff and the Servbots or the claws and staff. For bunkering, I could use the bots as loyal servants/foragers/fighters and that would be invaluable, and the monkey staff works for a good backup weapon if found as well as extreme mobility in escape.
As a nomad, I could use the staff as my zombie-proof airborne transportation as well as a long-range bolt-gun weapon, with claws as a close-range, silent and dead reliable weapon that can't get knocked out of my hand. Plus hunting could involve a stun with the staff and then the throat slitting with claws, followed by the cleaning of the meat etc. etc.
gravity gun + bombs
do I need to explain why?

Let's hear your arguments.
Yeah; the Corps sucks hind tit when it comes to gear, which is why they have traditionally been masters at getting the most out of what they did have. For example, after the Army got the Apache attack helicopter the Marines were left with the old Vietnam-era Cobras...which they retrofitted with upgrades to make it as good a combat platform as any in the world. They say that you can't make bread without flour, but the USMC have been doing so, and doing it WELL, for a couple hundred years now.
Mhmm... It's mainly the Navy and Airforce who have all the technology. Army gets some good stuff, and the USMC basically gets shit and has to make do.

also rock, oh and the stick video is in a neat channel with all sorts of melee ranged killing tools explained and shown off
It's been a couple of years since we knocked one about so how about we put together another achievement list for when the zeds come?
At the least it'll give us something to talk about when we bump into other survivors as well as some incentive to keep going when we hit the wall.
Get submitting. I'll collate the best into another PDF for y'all.

funny idea, made my day!
so /zom/, what would be the first store you would raid/loot?
just as soon as you are stable, i would rade an army dumpstore i know, its accessible by boat so quite safe, and has lots of stuff besides just army stuff, like camping gear and crossbows and bats and such. what about you guys?
Got my ford running on cooking oil and the sorting bins they got what I need to patch up or repair. They even got security if fenced in. Most of em are when I was going up and down the west coast. I stayed at one for a few weeks getting over the flu years back. The owner didnt give a crap as long as I didnt cause shit. I repaired my crossbow and found parts for my glock too. I made a rocket stove outta some crap for the owner for $100the and earned my keep killing rats with crossbow. He had fricken huge rats the size of chickens.
Supply warehouses are what most market chains uses nowadays to get their products. Basically real easy to find. Industrial parks is what I'd look for things that I can build with. Earlier I mentioned junkyards they're easy to get into without any hassle.
>raiding after z-day, like all the other plebs who say they're gonna run to walmart/academy/bubba's hunting supplies/the mall (god forbid)
>not having your supplies stocked beforehand
Have fun being trampled or shot because Jamal had his hand on the can of beans first and you wouldn't let go.
Honestly though, I'd grab a bunch of cash and go to the stores no-one would think to loot (specialty stores and the like, just some fun shit i couldn't afford before the habbening) just to get out and get some action but not too far in danger's way. If there's no cashier i just leave the money (it'll be useless soon anyways) and if there's actually a cashier there, I'll leave the brave sonofabitch manning his post a weapon that I don't really need that might help him out, like a spare crowbar that i'd have in my bag or something.
Every time i eat a twinkie it makes me think of Zombie Land. So /zom/ what simple pleasure will you miss the most?
I will miss the twinkies.
On account of the fact that hostess closed down :(
Hostess fruit pies! Till this day I wait for them to throw them out into the dumpster and I simply help myself. I usually score a good number of unopened twinkies boxes too. The miracle of preservatives! xD
Getting baked and playing GTA.
How well do you think this base would do in z-day?its the poseidon resort, assuming you have a few years worth of dried/caned goods, and a way to convert salt water to drinkable water.
Toxoplasmosis is carried by a third of the world. would that be enough?
zombification as a way to prolong life for people with terminal diseases as they remain functioning for longer before actual death
symptoms may include....
etc etc etc, umbrella corporation profiteers off it like a regular pharmaceutical company :>
Cancer has a strange quality where the primary tumor releases cells into the blood stream and forms secondary sites,
>these are generally benign and otherwise undetectable, but when the primary tumor is removed it triggers a chemical marker that activates the secondary sites. Hence why we use chemotherapy before and after surgery: eliminate those secondary sites before they turn into another tumor (and hopefully before killing he patient).
The highlighted portion is not how metastases works, and 'chemical markers' is not the reason for therapies being used following surgery. A benign tumor does not infiltrate other tissues, only grows in place sometimes putting physical pressure on surrounding organs and blocking ducts or whatever.
A malignancy infiltrates other tissues, and portions break away (embolise) into the bloodstream or lymph vessels and spread throughout the body. This is the reason why lymph nodes closest to tumor sites are biopsied: they are like strainers and cancer cells will stick there if they've made their way inside a vessel. Before a primary tumor is noticed the metasteses may have spread significantly, but is still undetectable. Depending on cancer type they can continue to grow slowly until someone who was in remission has a recurrence with the secondary sites growing and causing new problems.
Cancer cells are not intelligent, and do not communicate with each other. They're cells that can't self-destruct due to damage to that portion of their DNA.
So I've seen this movie and there was a scene where an infected woman gave this man her infant child in order to prevent her from eating the baby.
Which made me wonder, what would you do if someone handed you a baby during the zombie apocalypse?
The protagonist in this movie was lucky to come across a bunch of survivors in a big truck who were more capable of taking care of the baby.
But what if you don't have such convenience?
Would you take care of the baby, or kill it painlessly and give it a proper burial?
If there were no baby supplies around it would die naturally pretty quickly. They need to feed every couple hours and can't skip meals AFAIK.
Do your best for it to survive, but it will likely die. Give it a good burial.

Anyone have anything humorous in here, rather than sifting through a shit-load of threads just to look for one?
