I guess that's where we differ. I personally don't have problems with any of it; I recognize that sometimes there is no other choice. A strong offense is a good defense in my opinion. If you can't handle that, that's your problem; not mine.

PS: #MakingDeadThingsDeaderSince2003 lmao.

You're confusing me with someone else.

I'm guessing home-boy is leaving the forum, but I'd recommend you read the book "Collision Course" by David Crawford.

It kinda talks about how survival is not always what you think it is... Being a cold blooded survivor might not be what it is cracked up to be. You gotta live life to the fullest too... Especially because an APOC zombie world is less likely than needing a neighbor in a simple time of need.

So don't get too worried about hunting survivors with your bow when you can be talking to people at the mailbox.

So, I had to use the internet to see how many meanings "sock puppet" has and this led me to an urban dictionary which could be used for much additional reading if only for the laughs. CCIV sounds kind of teen-like, maybe a student. In another post, there is a suggestion to study Ayn Rand, referring, most likely, to her selfish treatise on her self-proclaimed virtue of selfishness. I say teen because this is when her books are normally assigned and the self-absorbed take to it quite easily. (Full disclosure: For good and bad, Howard Roark has been messing with me for over 3 decades.) I began with Anthem and send a copy to all middle-school readers in my family, but by the time you get done with the thousands of pages she uses in other books to more-or-less retell the story you will find people waving at each other by making the dollar sign in the air. To signal that there is nothing but your 'self' and then to later add in that maybe you can have one friend (money) is about as shallow as one old woman can be. Without hope there is no grace and with no grace there is no reprieve...nothing but standing at the gallows waiting for your turn.

Anyway, in a post-apocalyptic world, I think I would emphasize the 11th General Order predominantly, and I don't think I would be taking in many strangers. Once allowed inside though, I will have signs posted with the rules.

1. Don't spit on the floor
2. Use the spittoon
3. That's what it's for

I don't know if that was a visit from the Hokie/longy troll or Napoleon Dynamite. :shock:

Guess I should have asked if he has a pet Liger before he left.

So far it's Zantra/longy/Hoki/204.

Am I missing any names?

3 rules-

Mine would be the same ones I use for my kids-

1) this isn't a democracy, it is a benevolent dictatorship.
- I'm not your friend, I'm your father (leader)
- I do what I do for the good of this family (group)
- If I want your advice I will ask for it, otherwise hold your peace

2) if it's not yours, don't touch it (without asking permission)
- if it's not your toy, don't touch it
- if it's not your body, don't touch it
- if it's not your gun, don't touch it
- etc. etc. etc.
(This rule is really universal if you think about it)

3) handle your own shit
- if you have a problem with your sibling (group mate), handle it before I have to, if I get involved no one will win
- pick up after yourself
- be responsible for your actions
- take ownership



I'm raising little people to be adults when they grow up, not over grown kids.

I non concur with that. Serious? 3 rules with more than a dozen sub conditions? Strangers and my children? The only rule I want my children to understand is much more simple. This is it: I love you no matter what. Ask me how they are doing!

Strangers will have to hit the spittoon!

Never say never is the saying but I can't imagine allowing strangers into my home anymore. The last time I did that, bitch stole my Glock!

Rule#1. I am in charge. There's God, Chuck Norris, and then me. Helpful suggestions and constructive criticism are welcome. But, this is not a democracy. My word is final.

Rule #2. Be nice. You're already fucked, or you wouldn't be here. Don't make things worse. I'm not going to list what constitutes being not nice, but if you wouldn't do it in polite company, don't do it here.
Failure to heed this advice will result in you being very unhappy. How unhappy depends on my mood and the perceived severity of your transgression.

Rule #3. Everybody pitches in. Even if its just reading fairytales to the kids. If you have a specialized skill, whether hobbyist or professional, speak up.

Based on many of the responses I'm guessing that some people subconsciously read the question in two parts: 1) Would you take strangers into your home? and 2) What rules would you have for those 3 people you took in? The responses lean toward, "I am in charge." This might work for the new joins most featured on television, a lone dude or small family. The scenario where the 3 people are college students (2 females on cheerleading scholarships studying to be a nurse and 1 male on a engineering scholarship whose specialty is fortifications and foraging) returning home from a religious retreat and carrying only large bags of rice and ammo might work for some.

I'll bet most of those here have 'taken' people into their homes before, normally family or friends, but if it really came to strangers it would be so much more difficult. The rules would have to be very simple and enforceable. Having been around/near refugee sites in operations around the world the sheer numbers overwhelm very quickly. So maybe instead of thinking or 2-3 people needing a place to rest their head consider every inch of your outside space being occupied by a squatter and your resources being used to support them for as long as they last. Or you could remain hidden.
Over 500,000 Rohingya have relocated to Bangladesh, for instance, with no plans to leave.

Anyone have the dislocated knock on your door or squat on your land until an emergency has passed?
