Ever read Lord Of The Flies? I don't want to get back into a violent society that feels the need to protect it self with armed guards and other such nonsense anyway.

SO, yeah I will just walk right on past your little violent society that feels the need to keep people out with guns.

So my answer, I would walk right past your little camp simply because I don't want to be a part of any group that feels the need to keep people out, using violence and weapons.

Weapons and guns are a tool. Hunting for food, for example, is what they should be used for. Not for killing each other.... Which would most likely be the cause of any kind of STHF scenario... War..

Again, don't reply to me with nonsense about you having a perfect utopian society behind those gates..IF that were true, you would not need guns to keep people out... and don't jabber on about some other nonsense involving me getting eaten by aliens....

This is reality and if S ever hits the fan, I am on my own.

Peace and love... Good luck with your society that feels the need to point guns at passer by's. and I hope for your sake the people don't start fighting amongst themselves over power, just like we do now. Because at the first sign of a fight... You just watch as everyone starts pulling weapons on each other.... You just watch your little camp start breaking down and collapsing into a bloody mess.

If SHTF happens, I am through with people and through with the violence of society. I am on my own.


First of all, I rarely jabber. Second, this thread is hypothetical so in that respect, it's all nonsense. I have, indeed, read Lord of the Flies, and I agree that it poses an alarming and very real possiblity. And third, I never said we were "pointing guns at passers-by." In the scenario, people approach the gate of their own free will, ostensibly wanting to gain entry. Those who don't want in keep walking and I have no problem with that. I might do the same, myself.

My questions for you are:

If we don't protect ourselves with guns (best case: they're only a deterrent and I would prefer never to have to use them) how do you suggest we protect ourselves?

And what about you, wandering on your own with only your high morals to protect you? How long do you think you would survive?

As long as I can drive the jeep.


Blondes are overrated.


Deal!


I'll be riding Shotgun (literally!)
Got the Pistol Grip 12 gauge and Machete for Zombie/Bandit attacks,
and the 30/30 for food.
You just keep us mobile and all will be well.

Some more responses...

Let's give it up for g14's jedi twinkie skills!

hifreq, (master electrician, alternative power generation knowledge plus all the other stuff) you are SO in!! Make my day and say you're good looking, too.

queenofsheba, please bring your heirloom seeds and come on in. I don't recall anyone having the forsight to bring seeds thus far.

rabidrabbit, good vibes will be a luxury we'd like to have in an apocalyptic scenario, but not sure that's enough. We already have about 3 guitar players. Anything else that you can do?

Muslickz, we've been waiting for you and your radio building skills!

spw184, I think your herbal medicines and living off the land skills would be very necessary. [Guard waves him in.] BTW, since you said, "Give me an illness, I can solve it with an herbal medicine ..." I have this pain in my arse -- no wait, that's just my boyfriend.

deadeye, I want to see this: "I can take down a helicopter with a glass of water,12v car battery and a logging chain." You're in.

Asktheanimals, your impressive skills + your seeds get you in, even though your avatar freaks me out (like I'm one to talk, huh?)

Sundowner, you're the first to mention "horse skills" which raises an interesting point: I believe that people with niche skills would fare better when facing the guards. Come in, and hopefully, you actually brought some horses?

pauljs, a hearty yes to you and plan to supply us with printed works.

Rantheane, we are in dire need of "mommy skills!" Please come in. The kids are out back and one of them has a runny nose.

Hr2burn, your "seven inch tongue" is intriguing but I fear you may be a reptilian in disguise. You'll have to convince us that you're human.

Expat, please stop in for as long as you like with your traditional Chinese medicine.

To ladyteeny, I would let you in and put you on welding and wood chopping duty. With those skills, don't demean yourself to, erm, the other stuff.

SmoKeyHaZe proves the point with his jester and dance skills that non-traditional roles are needed, too. Same to jimnuggits with your art.
================================================================================

Now, it's a beautful, sunny autumn day outside and I need to take off my apocalyptic hat and enjoy it while it's still there. Do try to behave yourselves!

Sounds like a FAB offer but your wife and I have already met and worked things out while you were out back feeding the tortoises. You'll be on the sofa for a while.

No surprise, why do you think I'm negotiating for a side deal? Wife's a 95lb blonde too. I need a Brunette Zombie Killer before the family is really complete. And surely you can't all be mad at me at the same time? Can you?

I'm curious if zombies would provide a worthwhile form of sustenance?

I'll assume that's a rhetorical question. You know quite well that we can. Be afraid; be very afraid.

She's so over the hill. I liked the first movie, and some of her others, but she's way to old for the part nowadays.

Maybe, but they don't look too appetizing. I'm thinking boar and deer and an occasional bear might be better eating. Let the zombies eat each other.

As for Brunette Action stars....saw "Real Steel" last night. WOW!!
One of my all-time favorites! Instant Classic, going back to see it tomorrow! So how about Evangeline Lilly for your part when they make the movie about our story?

For the record, I'm pretty hard to stay mad at.

For zombie killers I think a redhead would be best. Brunettes tend to be a bit stubborn and forget their sense of self-preservation; hard to talk them down. Redheads have a temper and are not afraid to use it, but at least they can be calmed down long enough to reason with. In my experience that is.

I would be so offended by that, if it weren't somewhat true about me. I'm not too bad though.

Waaayyyyy Tooo Pretty for me. Biel just doesn't seem tough and Depp is certainly too pretty for me. He lives in France! He can't pull me off. Can he even grow a whole beard?

Jessica Biel seems like a legitimately tough actress...but, I'd have no way of knowing without having met her...


www.sodahead.com...

At least one person disagrees. Look at the picture btw, didn't wanna leech it, but she looks tougher than that Mila thing ever has.

I do have that movie on dvd. Dreadful movie but from the sounds of the commentary, she would like to kick Wesley Snipes in the mouth.

Now, to find someone more your style (which is hard btw). I can't find a tough guy actor. I did find an article about the fact that "tough guy" actors are in short supply in Hollywood right now. Maybe time you took up acting?

Jason Statham is a good tough guy actor, but he doesn't look anything like me.
Hugh Jackman has the attitude and 2 day beard down pat, but he is smaller than me and a little less....gritty.
Son's of Anarchy is pretty good, maybe a cross between Jax and Clay? I'm about halfway in between those two.

How about Bear Grylls?

Country Star Eric Church has me down pretty good, but I'm a little taller and bigger than him too.

Jason Statham sounds British though. Unless you're British, that's not gonna work.
