Re: Terra Nova

The reason why they think they are in a separate timeline is because they sent a probe in the past to send a signal out that could be read or picked up in the past, like a beacon. But whos to say that the probe was destroyed or crushed or melted later down the line. It might be the lost son and the ...

Much of what you posted, Ableto, is solid, and has been the position of many of the members on ZS, posting here, and in other threads. I do think you have missed ODA's point in the other thread, but that point is based on a phenomenon that has arisen here on ZS, and not being all that old long-term...

Re: The Average Joe's Life Expectancy

How are you going to increase it? Here's a scenario. You are an average person living in a middle-class area. Some sort of significant disaster strikes, (for this example, ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE!) and you need to escape. You don't have time to gather many supplies- you only have common household items, ...

Re: The Average Joe's Life Expectancy

Acctuly what you need to ask is, Why put your gear in a position to be stolen in the first place. If your in a SHTF situation, you do not want to put your gear down unless you have to, and secondly you do not leave it out of your site. If you got to take a leak, dont do it out in the open where ppl ...
