Re: Scientific American: Disaster Myths

ETA: What follows is intended to refocus the discussion and not to continue to hash out any discussion about looting. If you want to further discuss looting, I suggest a different dedicated thread on that topic. I feel as if some of you are kind of missing the point. The article isn't really about l...

Re: Fallout 4......

I am still playing FO4 on XBOX. It's the only game I play despite many to choose from. I've been playing on Survival mode, which at Level 83 is more of an inconvenience than anything: with no fast travel and no quick save, I have to walk everywhere and be sure to get some sleep now and then. I'm dea...

Scientific American: Disaster Myths

"Contrary to what we’ve been led to believe, people tend not to panic during disasters, and looting is rarely widespread" In fact, during disasters, the survivors themselves are the first responders , because they were already there when the disaster happened. The decisions survivors make can and do...

Re: Pathogens in fog?

After last weekend's hurricane Florence, my kid came down with a respiratory illness. It could have been picked up at the doctor's office when he had his wellness check on Tuesday... or the disease might have blown in as the hurricane crossed the hog-and-chicken producing part of my state, picking u...

Pathogens in fog?

I can see this as a possible vector for a zombie pathogen--either natural ancient pathogens thawing from Siberian permafrost and carried by fog, or a weaponized aerosol. "But the fog isn’t just a boon to these plants and animals—it may also carry risk. The researchers detected taxonomic groups that ...

Note that nowhere in the article is Holder actually quoted as saying "take to the streets"; that's the Newspeak...I mean Newsweek...headline.

Re: Active Shooter on Vegas Strip

I dislike being in a contained crowd setting where I am at the mercy of the multitudes and must rely on organizers (and their hired security) to safeguard my well-being. As Manchester showed, you can have good security in a venue, but be vulnerable outside the venue. This incident shows that being i...

Re: Fallout 4......

I started playing on survival mode a couple of months ago. I'm only at Level 20, but man is it both frustrating and satisfying. On this playthorugh, I am being smarter about establishing sensible supply lines. Previously, my supply line map looked like a monkey drew a spiderweb. And instead of build...

Re: Hurricanes 2017

I went to the grocery store for regular shopping last night. All the bottled water was gone. It was kind of hilarious. A guy and I stopped to talk about how a municipal water failure in our Piedmont city was among the most unlikely scenarios, and what people really needed was ice and tarps. He said ...

The 2004 hurricane season saw Florida hit 4 times including 2 storms that followed nearly identical tracks over FL, hurricanes Charley and Francis. Ivan was a cat 5 storm that hit Pensacola, FL. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2004_Atlantic_hurricane_season I had close to 800 hours of OT that season....

I'm in the cone of probability at the moment, in the Carolina Piedmont. I filled up yesterday, but I plan to shelter in place, so I don't need surplus fuel. I'm going to put outdoor furniture away and have my tarps and tie-downs ready in case my roof blows away or a tree falls on the house. I've bee...
