/zom/, I'm a military vet, and I know a thing or two about first aid in the field, but what was never clear to me is how to control severe arterial bleeding in the neck. In almost all cases of severe bleeding you would just apply a shitload of pressure to the wound and pinch off the artery at a higher point, but replicating this in the neck will shut the brain's blood supply down and will kill your patient. The best thing I can think to do is to clean the wound as best you can and suture it on the spot, but with uncontrolled bleeding this presents additional complications, not the least of which would be the swelling causing the sutures to pull free, potentially making the wound worse.

Anyone have any knowledge or experience with this?

When does our hobby become survivalist paranoia?

I'm talking to the preppers here, rather than the horror fans.


I just caught myself looking at sailing directions should I have to escape my continent.

Now I think that's a sign of a problem.

Anyhow, Mr. Abbots gonna use drones on that border anyhow.

Shambler 13/10/04(Fri)05:48 No. 4820 ID: 5d5bc0

You can look at it in one of two ways.

A: A person becomes a paranoid survivalist because he is clinically...well, paranoid. He is mentally ill, a psycho, a whack-job, a nut-case, and if self-medicating his broken psyche by purchasing MREs by the pallet gets him through the day, then good for him.

B: He becomes a paranoid survivalist because it is FUN! We're talking fun toys, here; the weapons, the radios, GPS, camping and hiking gear, and all the other shit associated with survivalism, is fun to play with. It is an expensive hobby, sure, but not as expensive as some. Also, if the zombies ever DO beat down your door, then your $100K collection of Renaissance paintings isn't going to be nearly as useful as my old AK47.

No rifle grip firearms? What the fuck OP?

Martyn Grim 13/09/20(Fri)03:35 No. 4798 ID: 435599

This was intentional. Too much variability to cater to everyone and cover the basics as well. Seemed easier to reduce the decision to hashing the differences between quality models of a specific type of gun (pistols), rather than rely on the vagueness of generic titles like "Shotgun", "Rifle", "Pistol" to cater to everyone (including someone looking to break the system).

Those who wish to rely heavily on firearms would be wise to choose the bandolier or bag-of-holding, and take on Jill as a partner.

>Fire Ax

I'm not going to be melee-combating zeds if I can help it, so I'm going with this for its utility value. Not very useful, however, unless you apply magical properties such as "never gets dull/corroded and is unbreakable", though. All items in the top row can be found lying anywhere, so it's silly.

>Glock 9mm

Just a simple gun, more for defense against other humans than zeds. Why the heck would I want something with hard-to-find ammo and huge recoil just so I can feel like goddamn Clint Eastwood? However, its utility is also negligible unless also magical (ie: never runs out of ammo); I'll pick up other firearms somewhere else.


A nice middle-ground of size and complexity. The humvee is too large/complicated to be useful, and the dirtbike too small to carry much cargo and/or passengers easily. I can easily find parts for and maintain/repair the ATV myself, something I can't do with the hummer. Segway is retarded: there will be nowhere to charge the thing two days after civilization collapses, and it's too delicate to survive in the dust out there.

"propelled in part by the suns rays" sticks out in the article, i suspect it still needs fuel to move, it's just the electrical grid is powered by solar energy.

Shambler 13/09/21(Sat)03:04 No. 4803 ID: 94000d

>While other ships have used solar panels before to power small electronics like auxiliary lights, the Auriga Leader is the first craft to direct solar power into the ship’s main electrical grid. Energy from 328 panels is helping to power the ship’s thrusters, hydraulics and steering gear, providing about 10 percent of the ship’s total electricity usage.

On the bright side when your ship runs out of fuel and you're doomed to drift until your supplies run out/sink/run aground, you'll have plenty of power to watch porn.

If you waited long enough on some island or in Canada wouldn't all the zombies rot away after 20 years or so

They need the flesh to move so they cant be skeletons.

Shambler 13/08/27(Tue)15:05 No. 4779 ID: d23a51

Depends on what your preferred zombie fantasy is based on.

Oddly specific version of rabies? They'll starve to death in a few months, if that.

Overly complicated reanimation virus? They'll rot away in a couple years, faster if said virus doesn't discourage flies from laying eggs in the walking corpses.

Hell-has-overflowed apocalyptic zombies? Science goes out the window, can't count on the zombies rotting or ever running out of energy, you dun be fucked.

Shambler 13/08/29(Thu)08:57 No. 4783 ID: ca12bb

not if you find a chainsaw, or play heavy metal while dancing with an axe

or what if you just lit california on fire and helicopter'd into the burnt out area while the fire continues to spread everywhere cleansing the world with flame for your glorious most triumphal return?

It's a good initial location but the real problem comes when every other survivor location within distribution range comes looking for their chunk of power. You'd be foolish to think they'd all play fair or cater to your demands.

>Even if it's offline, it'd be easier to get working again than most other power generators
Wrong, so wrong. Really, any of these sort of locations are safe as long as you don't touch shit unless such touching is under the control of someone suitably qualified to do so.

> Even if it's offline, it'd be easier to get working again than most other power generators

Not really, take a gander at this:

Basically everything in that is a bit of information you need to monitor and understand to ensure one of your turbines doesn't catastrophically explode, which generally leads to other turbines being damaged and the power house being flooded (which renders /everything/ useless) - and that doesn't even cover the knowledge required to clean and maintain the turbines themselves, or the operation of the reservoir itself (debris buildup and flooding are two major issues).

It's also likely there will already be a military unit and engineers stationed in a hydroelectric dam; the military will need the power to keep their bases running (even if they have their own generators it'll still be more limited in fuel than a hydroelectric dam, wind farm, or solar farm), keep civilian routes of communications open, and make taking back zombie-infested cities (if possible) easier if operations can run 24/7 rather than whenever the sun is up.

You'll probably be able to find refuge in that situation, but at the same time the Law of Zombie Outbreak pretty much demands such a situation means an overwhelming horde of zombies will be knocking at the doorstep at any moment.

AI will augment human cognition.

Do not be so naive to think zombies will be dumb, or they won't benefit from sociopolitical infrastructure.

What do we do when we are the weaker majority, not the powerful minority?

TSA thought bubble "LOL, she totally thinks I'm not going to stick my hand up her ass. What a rube!"

To your post, preparing for a zombie horde is more cost effective as the preparations one makes for zombies are the same as what you would do to prepare for a mob of looters or a gang.

It is very difficult to prepare for a Count Dracula type monster. They're so specific to make it nearly impossible to be prepared for all contingencies. Most of your defense will come from having a secured house with hidden provisions, a firearm, and the training/practice to make use of these resources.

zombification through nanobots programmed by someone who wanted to avoid a grey goo scenario but didn't quite get things totally safe, damaging certain higher function areas of the brain making them semi usable, but keeping in tact most basic "any animal has it" type functions

caused by the search to cure alzheimers

maybe they leak down through your sinuses, and this causes bleeding eyes sometimes or something and for some reason they like gum tissue and teeth as well

Youtube  as for dracula scenarios

predator, elephants, king richard the 3rd and other vampires and frankenstein's monster

distract and destroy, tank and spank, hit them when they're on downtime, and make the area inconducive to their peculiar traits

heavy machineguns work well generally too

1 hour 30 minutes here. 310 pound, obeses athsmatic, with everything else just fine.

Tried it as a dude in perfect health, got 1 hour 20 minutes.

How is it that my ludicrous battleship of an ass is HEALTHIER than a 150 pound guy who excersizes regularly and has an average build? Does the lard in my veins clog out the virus? I'm gonna agree with >>4690, test seems broken.

Makes sense. I know that doctors determine what drug dose to use based on body weight. The reason is that the larger you are, the more "thinned out" any drugs or poisons become, as they are spread out over a larger are.

Your fat ass just saved you. That is perhaps the one and only thing that being a fat-ass actually helps with.

I'm not sure it works like that. Yeah, he may live a few minutes longer after being bit, but I'm willing to bet he'd live significantly longer before getting bit if he wasn't wearing his ludicrous battleship of an ass.
