    How to Build a Laser Death Ray
  • This is kinda post survival, but do you guys do anything to ID yourself after you die?
    This mentally ill, maybe homeless guy was misidentified by the Orange County coroner, family buried some guy & then the guy they thought was dead called up his dad on the phone.
  • I'm reading a book about pre industrial economics in Europe.
    The author points out that cows in the 1600s were about a third of the weight of a modern cow. Their milk output was a fraction of modern milk output with a much lower butterfat content. The manure output wasn't shit either (sorry - had to).
    So, I just wanted to say that in a post apocalypse world, we probably won't get out of our bovine sisters what we are currently getting.
    • DF, you know I love, respect, and treasure you. Yet, I have to point out that your logic is faulty. If cows in the 1600s were smaller than today, than does it not make sense that future cows will exponentially be larger? Thus, cows in the apoc could possibly produce more than their current counterparts?
    • I was curious about this topic so I did a quick search. Apparently, modern cattle are injected with various growth-stimulating hormones--estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, etc--that cause rapid weight increase. "Modern Farmer" also states that in the days of yore, a cow had to be impregnated by a bull before she would be able to produce milk; since bulls can be fickle, modern cows are artificially inseminated to ensure a steady flow of milk. There has also, apparently, been selective breeding: "Scientists began reading the coding sequences in DNA and selecting the specific genes that farmers favored. Selective breeding led to cows with a particular shape of leg, a high udder, a high fertility rate and strong milk production. Today’s Holstein cow is a product of human engineering, as people have altered its genome by 22 percent over the past 40 years."
    • I'm coming from the prespective that we won't have the tech & food supplies current farmers have & that a regression would occur.
      Doubt we'd go back 400 years, but I don't think we would improve.

      Unless they get radio activated & become giants.

  • Anybody hear of this James Wesley Rawles guy?
    He's a survivalist author who also has a blog
    I'm listening to him on InfoWars right now talking about communications & data

    • Oh yeah, JWR is very well known within the survivalist/prepper community. He lives somewhere within what he calls the 'Great American Redoubt' presumably Northern IDaho but he won't admit it. He writes fiction and non-fiction and provides prepping advice. Been around for quite some time and a lot of his non-fiction books can be, and are found, within almost all prepper's libraries.

  • Some click bait about hobo symbols in the link. The Underground Railroad used some symbols to guide rubaway slaves.
    Any ideas on using such symbols in survivalist situation or zpoc?
