I do oweAn Apology to Iron and anyone else i might have offended by my outburst On the topic of HIV. Kyle, you are of course right on the research. Its just that working in the field i do i see a lot of "Oh well they wil find a cure" attitudes, and nothing is (again my opinion) being done to halt it...

No Not nuff said, the virus form of HIV does not just replicat itself inside the human body. It is parasitic. It takes over the humam cell and uses it to replicate its own DNA. To kill the virus you have to kill the infected cell. Meaning you would have to kill the human as well. Several test were p...

As gun guy and a hunter i can attest to the fact i have never hit a deer and actually knocked it backwards even using a 50cal black powder. I have however dropped one on the spot with a lethal shot. The myth of "knock down" power comes from the potential a weapon has for rendering an oppenent unable...

I am a huge fan of the shotgun. Mostly for its ammunition options. However i must quicly add that most of its ammunition is< of course> designed for MAN stopping not the theoretical zombie stopping. With Flachettes that can penetrate kevlar body armor to the buck and ball ammo perfected in the civil...

The .357 recoil actually depends on the frame the gun is built on. If you get one you want a heavy frame pistol. The debate is the length of the barrel. The longer the barrel the more acurate the pistol will be however it will have far more recoil. I was a .357 purist for many years until i came acr...

This is such crap! Agreeing with an earlier post my long range rifle is a Frech made MAAS. .308 caliber scoped and deadly accurate at 250 yds. If my scope was better it has an effective killing range at over 600yds! However, we know how the gov works, if they get the 50 caliber then they will pursue...

Hmmm Plague, not something you see everyday. Not even in the third world countries. This is something i will keep an eye on. 50 t0 60 percent mortality is pretty low for the pneumonic plague. sounds like someone is playing with the numbers. DO NOT TRUST THE W.H.O.

Just to clarify a point HIV has already mutated 7 times. There will never be a cure for HIV. never in the history of medical science have we cured a virus infection. We have developed vaccines against them to keep you from getting them but once a person is infected the virus will either run its cour...

thanks for the not paranoid! Qunicy really isnt big enough to support a gang related incident that would require helicopters. Although i agree probably not a zombie outbreak but the fact the media doesnt get involved and violence seems to be getting worse bugs me. I seriously think something is bein...

white steel toed boots

You Know it is an unwritten law that nurses have to wear white shoes. Do you know how hard it was for me to find a good pair of steel toed boots that were white? I think the lady at the store thought i was a complete freak when i had them order them.

Staring them down

I have had several experiences in the ER with violent individuals and i can say that staring them down has mixed results. Sometimes they can sense that you are someone that has athority in the situation and they will back down. BUT to agree with a previous post sometimes this just enrages them more ...

Come to believe?

I have an little observation that you might find interesting. We currently have a disease that slowly erodes the human brain little by little, It can only be diagnosed after a person has died. Only an autopsy of brain tissue can confirm it. The people that contract this disease slowly begin to lose ...

The big ones are MRSA and VRE. Both are scary as they are immune to all but the most p...
