The Last Guide You'll Ever Need

I’ve noticed over the past year or two a growing interest in Zombies. Films, books, comics, websites, festivals, pub crawls, etc. On our public radio station last week, a doctor was discussing zombies and classifying their behavior in medical terms. He was going over what was possibly damaged in their brain and what could cause their desire for flesh. Hey! Listen up, there’s no such thing as zombies. (Continued…)

Ear to the Ground: Pig Flu

In Post-Apocalypse on November 9, 2009 at 8:27 am

I got the pig flu last week. 103.5 degree fever with chills. Is that it? That’s what we’ve been hiding under the bed for?

I think we’ll all be ok.

Don’t Cup Your Hands

Don’t Cup Your Hands: The Cheapest and Best Water Bottle for the Apocalypse

Water is possibly the most necessary thing you will need in a post-apocalyptic world. Why? Because, dum-dum, water is the body’s principle component and it makes up somewhere between 60 and 70% of our body’s weight. Without water lubing up our various systems, the body can begin to break down and damage itself. Toxins aren’t cleaned out, nutrients aren’t carried to vital cells, and you can begin to dehydrate, all of which saps you of precious energy.

Money in a Post-Apocalyptic World

In Post-Apocalypse on May 24, 2009 at 11:27 am

Guest Post By: The Future King of Upper Michigan 

Check your pockets right now.  Chances are, you might have some funny colored paper with dead peoples faces on it, and maybe some jingly pieces of semi-precious metal. Do you know what those will be worth after the collapse of society? Nothing. So in this new world, with a barter economy, you’re going to need some things worth trading; and no, your grandmother’s jewelry won’t do the trick.  After the collapse, gold and silver become just shiny, soft metals, so pawn that now and buy something that could be useful.  What will become the new currency?  We have compiled a helpful list of some possibilities. (continued)   Read the rest of this entry »

The Road Trailer

In Post-Apocalypse on May 18, 2009 at 8:12 am

The trailer for the Apocalyptic gut wrencher/tear jerker has been released. If you want to  get a glimpse of how dificult it will be to survive in the post-apocatlyptic world, read this book and then watch this film.

The trailer makes it look like a summer popcorn zombie flick, but Esquire magazine has seen it and promise the film is just as bleak and remose as the book. (Continued)

Do Not Get A Gun

In Post-Apocalypse on May 11, 2009 at 9:47 am

A gun should be at the top of your survival list, unless of course you’re an idiot. If you have only seen guns in movies, you should not get a gun.  I imagine many of you knuckleheads buying a pistol, that you insist on calling a “glock,” and holding it at an angle while you try to remember Bustas’ lines from Higher Learning.

Ear to the Ground: Pig Flu Part 2 (update)

In Post-Apocalypse on April 29, 2009 at 2:47 pm

[update] The Homeland Security Secretary has declared the Pig Flu to be bull shit. You all have more time to prepare for the apocalypse.

The World Health Organization has raised its pandemic alert for swine flu to the second highest level, meaning that it believes a global outbreak of the disease is imminent.

Don’t run for the hills yet, but the doomsday clock is starting to move. Too bad, my book hasn’t even come out yet.

Learn From Dick Proenneke

In Post-Apocalypse on March 13, 2009 at 2:00 am

Dick Proenneke was a WWII veteran who lived alone in the high mountains of Alaska at a place called Twin Lakes. He built a small cabin using nothing but rudimentary tools. He died in 2003, but left his cabin to the parks service and it remains today as a popular visitor attraction in the still-remote Twin Lakes region.  This is a trimmed down video of the great film Alone in the Wilderness, which Dick shot himself while building his cabin. This film is mostly centered on how to build a log cabin, but there are other great tips in here as well. I highly recommend watching the whole film, It’s on PBS a couple times a year. If nothing else, enjoy this shortened version about a peaceful retiree surviving on his own in the wilderness. (Continued…)

Escape from Bilbao, Spain

In Post-Apocalypse on March 5, 2009 at 10:53 am

Bilbao, Spain

Bilbao, Spain

Dear Sir, i first want to congratulate you on your fine website. I am writing for some advice for when the big one comes, I currently live near Bilbao, Northern Spain, about 10 kms from the centre and im interested in your advice. I live with my wife and small son. What would you suggest is the safest place to go in the world or Europe? or do you think i should stay put with the crazy basques and tough it out in a tribe somewhere near the mountains? good luck and enjoy every day.yours guy:) aka jediprof

It is good of you to ask my Basque friend! Though, it’s best to leave Star Wars delusions behind jediprof, the Apocalypse will not be kind to you or your continent. Though not as bad as Asia, Europe is set up to be a cesspool in the post-apocalyptic world. It lacks open country, it’s people are used to provider-type governments and the population density is 4 times that of the United States. Now that’s fine when your sewers are working properly and the 40 million people around you are well fed and not looking to steal your last jar of berberechos. After the Apocalypse hits you’ll want to get the hell out of there. (Continued)

Prepare for the Pandemic

In Post-Apocalypse on February 19, 2009 at 1:56 pm

Often when we think of the Apocalypse we think of natural, social or nuclear disasters. Let me remind you that 700 years ago, half the population of Europe was wiped out by a nasty oozy pandemic. If the human race ever witnessed a real Apocalypse it certainly was then. 

It’ll happen again, but you don’t give a damn because you’re hoping big brother government will bail you out with some vaccine. Wake up buddy. How high on the list do you think you’ll be when they start handing out the limited supply of drugs, face masks and ventilators? Can you see them backing up the semi trucks with police in riot gear yelling, “Step back people! We need to vaccinate the computer programmers and Cold-Stone Ice Cream Artists first!” These supplies will go to cops, nurses and government officials. So unless you’re in for a career change you’ll probably die of some crappy bird flu. (continued)
