The Otto family has... issues.

It's funny to me that each one of the Clarke's has buddied up with one of the Otto's.

I see a divide and conquer strategy coming on. Cause a conflict and then cast yourself as the savior.

Kind of like an internet troll.

These guys are posers.

If they had run in to Rick and gang all of the Otto clan would be dead by now.

Josh: you don't run this ranch, Maddison

Maddison: oh really? Hey, Nick, kill the old racist ass hat.

<bang>

Maddison: guess what, Troy controls the militia and I have him tied to my apron strings- so I guess I do run this ranch- AND I'm gonna give your Daddy's head to the pissed off Native Americans- neener

I think my favorite thing so far was during last week's episode, when Troy was in the armory locking-up the guns....and running a cable thru the trigger guards of the M4/M16s.Image

How about this weeks episode; they lock the prisoner in the pantry that holds those ARs and AKs, and all their foodstuffs. Then the prisoner gets assigned to work in the kitchen. Note to self __________.

So non weaponized anthrax [NSA will be reading this post for sure] a tablespoon put into a coffee pot, and then ingested orally, can infect and disable someone in a couple of hours. Suspension of disbelief at its finest.

Image

Fun facts:
Anthrax: usual onset is 1 day to 2 months post contact. [remember the Audra Barkley/Big Valley incident? yeah, no one does. :| ]
Intestinal infection risk of death is 25-75% without treatment.
TWD Troys 'test' for 'turning' humans was 80 minutes average after death IIRC.

So how did this go so sideways in one evening?!? I didn't count, but i estimate 8 in the grave and another 15 lined up. BTW, shouldn't they burn the anthrax bodies? Since they will be bursting with spores that will remain infectious for decades. Was that the windmill they were burying the bodies next to?
  • Stupid Cyphering:
    8+15=23
    23/.25=92
    Are there 92 people staying at the ranch?

    23/.75=30
    Well there's more than 30.

    -and-
    Ave Large Coffee Maker makes 42 cups, Americans drink ~10oz servings from mugs. [barbarians]
    At most the number of people who could consume the tainted coffee is...
    (42*8)/10=33 people
    33*.25= 8 people die.
    33*.75=24 people die.

    Now factor in the fact that the ranch was researching 'turning' rates for dead humans into zombies and their training and ability to deal with the 'infected'.
-next-
Here's where it gets confusing. 'Infected' is one of the main nicknames for zombies in FTWD. But now there are people infected with anthrax but not dead yet. What do we call them? And then when they die they are then the infected, but in a new way because they can kill with a zombie bite or kill with the anthrax spores now residing within their infected bodies. Infected 2.0?!? So previously when the blood of a zombie gets in the eyes, mouth or nose of a living human, there is no risk of imminent death. Now, with anthrax zombies, that blood could transfer the bacteria, which in turn causes death. Also infected 2.0 will be walking around shedding spores everywhere they go. Infecting livestock, crops, watersupplies, etc.

ok im done.


I've started watching Fortitude. I knew when the police pulled the people over on the snowmobile using a helicopter, told the riders that their little sissy gun wasn't sufficient and demanded they take his rifle until they were better equipped that I was in the right place.

Guess if you have to fallback and hide from a big honkin' herd, an underground bunker where you keep all your stuff is better than under a trash dumpster. :clap:

....Or not, if they all end-up suffocating.

Garret Dillahunt with some SAA quick-draw action? :clap: He was my original pick to play Rick on TWD.

After the whole anthrax thing I just couldn't look anymore. Let me know when it is over.

With the Morgan character joining FTWD, there must be a helluva time-jump between last season and this upcoming 4th season.....according to the timeline wiki for both shows, the CDC building in Atlanta blowing-up (end of TWD season 1) and Nick blowing-up the dam (end of FTWD season 3) both occur on the same day.Image

So how do you think those side mounted SAWs work? Do they just strafe left/right automatically? Is there a motion tracking control? Is it a manual control? Didn't look like anyone was controlling them.

Looks like they rely solely on plot targeting and scriptwriter interface to make hits.

Well at least FTWD hasn’t gone to cgi’ing gunfire (yet) like TWD did... I stopped watching when they did that.

Well, that was a bummer. There's only three left from the original Atlanta group, and now it appears that there are only three (maybe only two) left from the original L.A. group. :ooh:

Still Watching!! :roll:
so TWD had J.S.S., now FTWD has J.I.C.
Can't help but think that if Rick was in charge when the Caravan showed up to wait for them all to die, Rick would have took them all out, and took their loot.
