Okay so we have all seen the news story about the individual in Florida, and there is a discussion thread on that incident on the forum http://zombiehunters.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=94767&start=624. I however am interested to see how you personally have taken these recent news stories and how they have influenced you. Do you think its just a random and freak coincidence and no further thought should be given? Or did you go down to Ye Olde Gun Shoppe and buy a few more AR mags when you saw it. Even further, was this just some event that regardless of what it means, simply served to add some more fuel to your prepping fire and help you to see how volatile our world is?

Simply put, I don't want to argue about the reasons or causes of the 'Zombie Incident', but how are you and your family members/Bug-Out Group responding to it and why?

Thanks!

No changes but does give more fuel to throw on those that say prepping is a senseless waste of time and money

Doomsday preppers? What channel does that come on. Did anyone ever see the show on discovery called doomsday bunkers? They made like 5 episodes and it just dropped off the air

I have not changed any preps. I view these incidents as nothing but one more instance of crazy garbage in the the world.

Z28-I was actually looking for the bunkers show and found the preppers by mistake. I think it's on NatGeo, no clue what night or time. I will caution you in advance, it's not exactly what I would call a series of training video's. Think Man vs. Wild only with the cast of Jersey Shore instead of Bear Grylls-I use his show because I like Les Stroud.

That's because Les Stroud has value in his show.

No change in my preps here.

See? Bull gets it. OP-my apologies, wasn't trying to derail your thread. I'm actually doing nothing different. It's going to take more than a random event and a bunch of media hype to spur me into action. I mean, seriously, if a guy living in a city that's 7-10 feet below sea level hasn't changed anything, what the hell do I have to worry about? :D

Yeah idk what happened to the bunkers show i liked it it was interesting to see what types of bunkers they came up with and it wasnt all just for the doomsday, they were great for tornados and things of that nature as well but like i said they did like 5 episodes and then it dissapeared because it came on right after sons of guns which i love especially since they did the episode with max brooks making the ultimate zombie gun but yea the doomsday preppers comes on nat geo just found it coming on tomorrow morning from 9-11 figure i may as well check it out.

Yeah my apologies for the thread hijack as well lol but in terms of actions im doing nothing different if more incidents occur and i mean proven incidents that justify a connection to this original incident the i might start looking seriously into but as for now its nothing more than fuel for me losing faith in humanity lol

Haha you're fine I enjoy all of those shows. Doesn't appear that this thread is really going anywhere anyway...

I did buy more bullets. BUT, I guess that's not really a change .....

I too purchased ammo today, no crazy amounts, just 1000x.22 and 100x9mm. I was sadly quite low on .22, and still am lower than I'd like to be, but I need to simply bump my preps up unanimously, not focus on the gun stuff and let the food stuff suffer.

It did give me a reminder that we've slacked off on the prepping lately, so we're building up our food supplies again, and making sure everything gets rotated.

No change, just a reminder that I need to keep DOING the things I've planned.

Almost fell over laughing, no changes at all.
If it took a meth head eating someone to make you realize you weren't ready, well Darwin has an award for that.

No changes to my preps.
With the incident in Florida I feel like it is just a fluke, a bad trip, nothing to get worried about.
With the incident up north where the college student ate the organs of a man he stated he "found" dead in his home, again, I feel it was a fluke. Jeffery Dahmerism in full glory, that's all.
I am sure that things like this happen elsewhere in the world, maybe not specifically in the US, but certainly in other countries where we never get wind of it.
The world is full of nut cases and it is only a matter of time, circumstance and lack of proper medication and treatment before one, or two, or even three manage to surface within the world we regularly patrol and get news of. Meanwhile, another man or woman could be boiling up someone elses liver to make patte' somewhere in Kazakhstan or Myanmar. We just don't get to hear about it here in the United States, and even those incidence, when discovered, may be isolated as well.
If these incidents were linked to some sort of mind altering virus or illness then perhaps I would revise or add to my preps, but as it stands... no, no change in any of my preps as of yet.

Immune to bullets, psychotic/paranoid rage, inhuman strength... I'm not sure I could :?
But I am sure it could never happen to me... :D <== Mug!
