Re: "Walking Dead" New Cable Series

Just watched the last episode again and caught something that kind of bothers me that I must have missed the first time around. When they were doing the flashback to the city getting bombed, Carol's husband got pissed when she offered Lori food and lectured her about operational security. This and ...

Re: Falling Skies

Why, oh why, can't I stop watching this show? Did anyone else the magic shot that killed Heroic African-American Dad (no, I don't care about any character enough to remember their names...)? They fled from a serious gun fight with automatic weapons equipped with Hollywood magazines, and yet the shot...

The only positive thing I have to say about this show, is that it is postapocalyptic. 8) What's up with the main character walking around with a large untreated wound on his face?

Re: Improvised Weapons Guide *wip*

I once had the belt buckle trick used against me. After defusing a seriously hostile situation (or so I thought), I turned my back to the other party (stupidly, I know) and walked away, secure in my conviction that I had avoided a violent confrontation. The avoidance bit was quite sensible, but the ...

Re: Plans for a "Morale Kit?"

In my "Long Term Bug-In" storage, I've a book that has hundreds of games you can play with all sorts of everyday items (like straws, napkins, small stones, whatever).

For bugging out, I've just memorized a few of these. And you can ALWAYS improvise a Go board... :twisted:

Re: 550 cord and a golf ball

Seriously... if you can throw a rope with a golf ball/grappling hook/blue wire katana while submerged in freezing water I suggest you go study at the Superhero Academy.

Btw, if you can throw a rope while submerged in lukewarm water you should probably ask yourself if you're maybe superhuman.

Re: The next big thing in military arms

IMHO, you can't replace boots on the ground, for some types of military operations. No matter how elite, no special forces can invade any country by themselves. Influence the outcome of a civil war, rescue hostages, twart some unwanted insurrection? Sure. But invasions require huge amounts of regula...

Depends a bit on the type of PAW we're talking about. I'd probably be the go-to guy for advice on cold weather clothing, or dealing with cold weather in general.

Re: Walking Dead Police Uniforms

I think we're over-analyzing this. Here's a fictional character, he's The Cop, so to remind us of that he wears The Cop Uniform. It's also good to remind oneself from time to time that the show is called "The Walking Dead", and has NO subtitle along the lines of "How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse".
