Fallout 3 is good for you!

A ton of people have written me about Fallout 3, which is a post-apocalyptic-mutant-shoot’em-up-role-playing-survival game. The premise is the world has been nuked to all hell and people have survived by living in vaults. Your character was born in the vault and soon enough you leave and discover an apocalyptic wasteland full of crazy humans, mutants, guns and junk. “Sounds interesting.” I’d say, “but I’m no gamer, I know I’d just get addicted to something like that.”  Well last week I tried it out and nobody has seen me for three days.

This is not the car of the future

This is not the car of the future

The internal combustion engine has proven to be one of the most earth changing inventions in human history. Between generators, cars, chain saws, and a plethora of other useful things, a well running engine could be the difference between life and death. While you may not have the opportunity to gain proficiency in engine maintenance, knowing a few basic things will go a long way. This knowledge has the added benefit of being helpful in these pre apocalyptic days as well.

Now, there are two reasons why you don’t know how to fix your own car. One is because you’re lazy and would rather pay someone else to do it. The second is because newer cars are becoming harder to work on in the garage. It’s one thing to patch a hose or replace an alternator by unscrewing it, but today’s cars are becoming more and more electrical and the average Joe can’t do it without a soldering gun. Even the mechanics don’t know how to fix these cars. You go in with a problem and they say, “Oh, I have to plug it into the computer to see what’s wrong with it.” Really? Is that how far we’ve come? The Apocalypse looks closer than ever. (Continued)

Make Your Own Biodiesel

In Post-Apocalypse on October 28, 2008 at 9:28 am

To survive the apocalypse you may find your self trekking across the wasted world, looking for safety, possibly held up on a farm trying rebuild some semblance of society. In many circumstances you will want to make the best use of whatever combustion engines you can find. They’ll be plenty of rusted out cars out there, but no gas. Get a leg up on those freakazoid cannibals by filling up your Mad Max machine with biodiesel.

You maybe able to scavenge traditional gas or diesel. However, it would probably be prudent to have a working knowledge of making your own biodiesel. “Biodiesel!” You say, “Isn’t that just for hippies?” Yes, but if they are the only ones who know how to make it, then the post-apocalyptic world will be run by hippies. That’s scarier than freakazoid cannibals. Think of Mad Max in a VW bus… (continued)
