No duct tape.
They started off giving me robutussin when I told them that I wasn't breathing at all when I was horizontal, almost. Eight bottles later, they realized it wasn't working and gave me sudafed. The only thing they got right was giving me ridiculous amounts of hycodan.
No bed rest, though. They don't believe in bed rest.
I'm also the platoon 'medic', having not only done well on the first aid courses, but having the honor of humping around the medkit. Know what's in there? Glowsticks, bandaids, and a facemask. Oh, and two rolls of gauze, and a half-roll of medtape.
They take care of boots real good.

Good compilation! Y'might add meteorite strike to the natural disasters. Another facet of the impact of these things is that a few of them can be anticipated, or at least the probability of them happening -- there is some warning, such as hurricane, the possibility of tornado... etc. I know that I'm less afraid of hurricanes than I was of earthquakes when I lived in a high seismic zone.

So what kind of ailment can you treat with glowsticks?
Darkness. It's often hard to find the leak for the duct tape in the dark. Or you can use them to signal a helicopter to come in and medivac out. Or, if the glowsticks are flexible enough, you can use them for a tourniquet.
Other than that, I just don't know. My neice made herself glow in the dark, though, with some punctured glowsticks. Was rather spooky. Is that a zombie deterrent, glowing in the dark?

Here's a fun site www.lastdaysjournal.com... it's basically like a myspace only the whole idea is that the world has suffered an outbreak of zombies. You make up stories about your survival and yadda yadda. Try to overlook the fact that the internet would very likely not exist anymore. My screen name is M.I. Immune. I haven't updated in awhile 'cuz I can't think of where else to take my story.

Reading this, it looks like a stupid thread, but just in case anyone takes it seriously I will just say plan for the worst and hope for the best. You can't go wrong that way.
