Re: Short term interstate move -WWYD

Granted, I got out of the Army in 1996, so things may have changed. Also, I was in the Infantry, so that may make things different as well... 1. I could secure two cases of MRE's in about 15 minutes at any new post. 2. My primary purpose was defending this country. Bugging out was not an option. 3. ...

Re: strangest thing you have ever seen

I'd say it was when I saw UFO's when I was in the Army in the Spring of 1996. We were on a training mission at the NTC, close to FT. Irwin in Ca. I was a Bradley Gunner and was on guard duty around 2AM. I was looking out of the Hatch on top of the turret, the stars were beautiful, as they usually ar...

Re: Food by the pound. Rated by calories, protein and fat?

When I was in the Army I would just pack Jiff, MRE crackers, water, done. This was when we'd be field training for two weeks south of Death Valley. I got sick off the MRE tuna one time and after that, there was no way I could even smell one of them without getting nauseous. So no MRE's. This diet wo...

Re: Could it be that Zombies are like our ancinet cousins?

What i mean is that there was a time when we were upright meat eating hunters, then our brains got bigger and we became REALLY good upright meat eating hunters. I'm interested in that period where we were meat hunting, but not the humans we are today brain wise. More specifically, the brain we had w...

Re: Hello from ATX

I live in an apartment. In the event of a Zombie apocalypse, it would seem, beyond immediate safety water would be the number 1 concern. Certainly having a large amount of water stored would be very prudent, but I was also wondering... If things get kooky, how long would it take for the water to shu...

Water

If left untended, how long until the water would be shut off for say an apartment in the city?

Re: Could it be that Zombies are like our ancinet cousins?

Thank you so much for responding. I certainly could be wrong about the walking vs. running idea. In defense of the walking idea, I would say that humans were much slower than quadrupeds, therefor they might run for a short distance, perhaps in a surprise situation, but more than likely that would lo...

Re: A biology student's view on zombies

I would have to say I vote for a Virus that acts like the parasites you mentioned. The primary purpose of any creature is procreation of it's DNA. To replicate. To live. I have problems with any Zombie theory that doesn't support this basic idea. So whatever it is that is turning people into a Zombi...

Could it be that Zombies are like our ancinet cousins?

I know many variations of Zombies have been presented in films/TV and literature. I have yet to see a version that makes sense to me. So I've been wracking my brain to come up with a version that is ( for me) more believable. All I have for now is a rough draft of an idea; an impression. I would rea...

Hello from ATX

New to the boards from Austin Texas. I've got Zombie questions on the brain, so I figured I'd check out a chat board and see if some of those questions could be answered.
