Re: "Walking Dead" New Cable Series

Someone in a post mentioned the knocked over tool box but remember 'standard' LE cuffs are hardened steel. I'm taking bets if/how the SOB frees himself and whether it requires a self inflicted "injury". If it does he's an even bigger idiot than he looks. The cuffs may be difficult to cut through bu...

Re: "Walking Dead" New Cable Series

If it does he's an even bigger idiot than he looks. The cuffs may be difficult to cut through but that pipe they're on seems fairly easy. Not just easy, but that threaded rod looks rusty and that hack saw should go through it like butter. All he has to do is weaken it and give it a few kicks and pu...

Re: Emergency Water Supply

Most residential hot water heaters hold between 70 and 125 gallons of water. That's hardly enough to last a family of three, three days of normal flushing, bathing, and cooking. You want a non-invasive emergency water supply, then get yourself a swimming pool. No one said it should be the only sour...

Re: "Walking Dead" New Cable Series

Great show, awesome potential inconsistencies and all.. Some really excellent starter plots have developed. Special effcts look great for a TV show. This show will probably redefine Zombie physiology and behavior. The redneck on the roof is some friggin piece of work. Seems like there's always gotta...

Re: Emergency Water Supply

Not many people know this but your hot water tank is a hidden reservoir for use in an emergency... Even fewer know how exactly to go about accessing the water inside. Yes, you can use the taps/faucet but what if the water pump has gone and there's insufficient pressure to drive it out the taps ;) I...

Re: Multi tool selection.

I've used a lot of multitools, my current favorite is the full size Gerber Suspension on belt and the mini suspension on keyring. Use both frequently as a field mechanical Engineer..l Both are Suspensions are well built, the blade lock release is nicely done too. http://www.gerber-tools.com/Gerber-S...

Re: Physical fitness

I quit smoking 4 years, I put on some hefty weight. Decided at 47 I'd want to be empowered by age not hobbled by it... Three sessions (sometimes 4) of mixed martial arts per week. Has helped me drop 40 pounds and get back into shape. Monday, it's a double-up: intermediate kickboxing class followed b...

Knowledge is power..

Kinda new here, love this forum, especially some of the tongue in cheek humor. As the topic mentions, I believe knowledge is power. As a HVAC mechanical engineer and hobbyist I enjoy collecting and using reference materials, guides, and Rule of Thumb essays. Working in a construction related industr...

Excellent book! Can't wait for a sequel or prequel!
Reminds me of William Gibson's older works but with foodstuff hacking vs cyber hacking.

Re: *** How many of you purchased Potassium Iodide Pills?

I bought the potassium iodate pills, know that they aren't a cure all as others have mentioned BUT worth having 'em in a home first aid kit.

Wonderful contest and some great submissions.

Re: Fun with Paracord! (or) Misadventures with Paracord!

Great stuff. Been lurking for a bit--this is my first post I've made a few of the basic bracelets which I like, but don't have the patience or time to make the nicer gear/tweaks. Any sellers here for several of the lanyards, cozies, belt and monkey fists (my daughters would love a rainbow colored on...
