>random civilians with a six month training
What do you mean? Marines are not just trained for 6 months and then done forever. Even the national guard you have to go to debriefings and PT every other weekend.

Also, U.S. Marines do not get very high tech gadgets. Some stuff like radios, but that's useless if no one else is there to talk to. Otherwise it's just a rifle and some other gear.

Shambler 14/05/18(Sun)19:13 No. 5101 ID: 8326de

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.

Shambler 14/05/19(Mon)09:53 No. 5102 ID: 31b4a8

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.

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.

Re:Supply Warehouses & Industrial Parks Brotherhood Of The Tentacle 15/02/02(Mon)08:48 No. 5345 ID: 506f4d

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.

>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.

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.

Prerequisite: Kill twenty zeds consecutively in a single day without using any overt weapon (as in using a bullhorn to lure them into walking off the top of a neighboring tall building...trick them into killing themselves using only passive means.) I could even engage in friendly competition with my fellow survivors; whoever racked up the biggest tally in a designated time period gets to wear Woody Harrelson's celebrated 'Zombie Kill of the Week' button. And eat a twinkie, of course.

Shambler 15/02/07(Sat)21:04 No. 5352 ID: 15121f

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?

Shambler 15/02/07(Sat)20:31 No. 5351 ID: 15121f

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.

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.

Monkey Staff + ServBots

I only really need the staff for this plan to work.

"This 3 foot metal staff can extend and retract itself to any length in either direction."

Ok... so I'll extend the staff into a 100m wide 10m high cylinder, get my ServBots to build me a base on top of it and happily live there. Hordes of zombies? Raise the height so they can't climb on top of it. Need to explore? Increase the diameter, ServBots can help patrol the circumference. Got pesky raiders who really won't leave you alone? Rapidly expand and contract the circumference and bludgeon them to death with a solid wall of steal. Don't like ServBots? Pick a ranged weapon and simply sit on top of your tower of doom raining down death with your ranged weapon of choice on any nearby targets.

Brandy Downer 14/11/22(Sat)00:30 No. 5281 ID: c02cda

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.

Shambler 15/01/15(Thu)15:48 No. 5336 ID: ac5245

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.
