Re: Research Notes

I really like the technical writing style and can see how these "Cicadia" auditory distraction devices could be an interesting addition to a larger story. But for this short vignette, it would have been more interesting if one of the test cases, while generating useful data, ended tragically when on...

Unless you are immunocompromised or a fetus, all T. gondii will do is give you flu symptoms. Stop trying to spread panic.

Ophiocordyceps: Real Life Fungal Zombie Vector

Ophiocordyceps is real and it's creepy as all f*ck. It's also the scientific underpinning of two of my favorite additions to fictional zombie lore: the fantastic video game The Last of Us , and the outstanding novel (and pretty darn decent movie adaptation) The Girl With All The Gifts . https://www....

Re: New Face Hoping to help out

Welcome to Zombiesquad (officially). ZS chapters have gone pretty dark in recent years, but perhaps there's an odd active chapter out there near you.
Or alternatively, you could be the one to make a derelict chapter rise from the dead!

Re: Age Of The Living Dead (Amazon series)

Hey... it worked for Walking dead I actually enjoyed the first couple seasons. It is sad when writers fall blindly in love with their characters. It did work for the first few seasons.

US MRE Beef Goulash (Menu 22) review

I always enjoy Emily's military ration reviews. She comes at it from a distinctly civilian perspective. You quickly pick up hints however that this isn't her first MRE rodeo. But she still doesn't understand how the pull apart seal works on US MREs. Plus she's adorable. http://www.youtube.com/watch?...

Re: KLR Storage - Mission Failure

Anyway if you want to learn from my mistake I recommend putting a liner in tanks of your bikes and ATVs with metal tanks. Draining them won't stop the rust.

You're talking about going "grey man" with an inconspicuous, low visual profile pack. I applaud you for thinking along those lines. A three-day pack would definitely put you towards the top end of your 20L to 40L range. And it'll be hard to get anything around 35L to 40L for under $50 that isn't jun...
