Re: State of Decay 2

Interesting. I just heard about State of Decay 2 a few days ago. I had no idea that it had been announced over a year ago.

I haven't been on here for a while but just happen to be laying in bed watching Dead Snow when Zombie Squad was mentioned. I woke my wife up with my gasp at ZS being in it. So cool!

2. Lack of GPS will be the death of many people if an extreme whammy happens (EMP, Government Collapse, War, etc...).

Re: For when the Intarwebs go down... Host your own Wikipedi

As an aside, I'd love to see the encyclopedia that has use as a reference material for physical projects. Never seen one that did, as they tended to be more centered around academic knowledge. Well, the word "encyclopedia" isn't in the title, but here's something that comes close to fulfilling your...

Re: MERS coronavirus anybody following this?

I can tell you that at least one thing in this list is false. I am going to be on leave during the time frame they say no military members will be on leave. So if that is false, what else is false in it?

Re: First Confrontation While Open Carrying

What stands out to me is that you said 90% of the police departments cooperate and some even take pictures, then there is a near disaster story like this. Relatively speaking, ...

Re: First Confrontation While Open Carrying

Some of us believe that it was a investigatory detention, others believe it was a mere encounter and the OP was free to leave. I'm still in the mere encounter camp, and I'm pretty sure I articulated fairly well why that is. I'm not re-hashing this again. The FACT is that we will never hear what a j...

So I came across this bag at a local shop in South Korea. http://www.gounicorn.com/front/product/product.open.unicorn?c=&seq=228&cate_seq=3 It seems like a decent bag. Seems well built but before I spend 80 bucks on it I am wondering if anyone has any experience with this bag or the company. Any inf...
