and i've seen people who would rather put the money into their car than food. You can be psychologically addicted to anything...but, there's no CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY involved.
User avatar #320 - manofbeardliness (04/21/2014) [-]
Exactly, stoner's think just because there is no addictive by-products in weed, that they can't get addicted. By nature humans are creatures of habit, so if they smoke to the point where their body/mind becomes accustom to smoking weed every day, of course they'll become dependent. Another thing that gets on my nerves is when they say it can't do any harm. Go look at all the data explaining how weed can be harmful to people who're predisposed to mental illness and how it can heavily increase the chances of symptoms to surface.

You have a good primary,but shotguns are not the zombie killing machines they're made out to be.

You can drop a deer from 80 yards with #4 buck shot, I've done it. There are also things called slugs which are just big fucking pieces of lead in a shell which can put gaping holes through flesh.

So the second. They're basically the same thing,just a little more...advanced. You might do well,maybe. What kind of equiptment were you thinking about bringing? You'd need a primary weapon,back up weapon,a close quarters weapon (IE knife or crowbar or pipe or something.),not to mention the ammo if you choose guns.
#96 - sixpoundsofjerky (04/18/2014) [-]
I know it wasn't directed at me, but my given dream set-up in the zompocalypse would be an HK-SL9SD, suppressed, with an angled grip, holo-sight, and a laser for quick acquisition. A Wilson Combat Tactical Supergrade, suppressed. A high-end combat/utility knife, a crowbar, and a trench-spike. Clothed in the form of an armored motorcycle jacket, wear a lightweight ballistic vest atop it, wear either armored pants or strap on some shin guards, steel-toe heavy industrial quality boots, knee and elbow pads, a full-face motorcycle helmet, and some tactical gloves.

Untouchable, unless you walk right into death.
#170 - hazenberdan (04/18/2014) [-]
Oh,I misread it. I thought you put MP5. Sorry about that. I haven't slept well as of late. Your primary weapon is fine.
#319 - sixpoundsofjerky (04/18/2014) [-]
I ignored the general supplies seeing as keeping food and water are a bit of a given. And I know what you mean, I've read the ZSG myself, but I'd rather have a higher chance of getting grabbed and be safe from most bites, than have a lower chance of getting grabbed. As for my sight and laser, they'd be unused most of the time, unless needed, and I'd carry spare batteries.

I'd also carry a few books.
#127 - hazenberdan (04/18/2014) [-]
I'm sorry but you would not last very long. Once your sight and laser sight are out of batteries,they're just for decoration then. Nice choice with the crowbar,but your primary weapon needs some work. Anything automatic and there's the temptation to just kick it to full auto and start mowing down everything,and if that happens,before you know it you'll be out of ammo,and you'll have to be relying on a pistol and a crowbar. Not an ideal situation. Not to mention that much clothing would leave you tired from running around in it. the *approved* loadout (from the guide),would be some form of a hunting rifle, a normal telescopic scope and a silencer for it,possibly a pistol with a silencer,a crowbar,around 10-20 mags of ammo for your primary, and 5-10 for your secondary. For clothes,as stupid as it sounds,a pair of jeans and a tight shirt,a bandana,shades,and a pair of industrial boots,as you had said. You're not supposed to be going rambo on the zombies,just trying to find somewhere safe to hide. Mind you,the ballistic vest would be nice to have incase you run into some unfriendly survivors. You would also want a backpack. Because on the run,when you're alone,you have to carry your armory,your infirmary,your cafeteria,and your own entertainment on your back. entertainment because,well,you need to keep your mind sharp. I think the others make sense on their own.

I think if a Zombie apocalypse happened it would clear up pretty quickly, especially near the equator. All that dead meat would rot real quick in the sun and just turn them into mushy jelly zombies.

#35 - hazenberdan (04/17/2014) [-]
Not really. Assuming zombies were a thing,I'm choosing to follow the zombie survival guide here. It says that while waiting for them all to just rot away into nothing could be done,it would take anywhere from 3-5 years. Plus,it wouldn't just magically go away,there are some people who are fucked enough in the head to walk over and be like "hey I wonder what it'd be like to be a zombie?"
User avatar #37 - AbsentMinded (04/17/2014) [-]
Yeah but those people wouldn't be so hard to contain, unless it was 28 days style rage zombies. I don't think a Walking Dead style invasiom would last too long, But rage zombies would fuck us all over.

Eventually somewhere it would give and military personal would then be infected. Once it gets into the military all hell is breaking loose. And it will go just like this: "we aren't invincible, so we need to take drastic actions to stay on top." So they start gunning down anyone that looks remotely hurt, bloody, or manages to surprise them. Now the citizens that viewed them as their only hope start to turn against them. People purposely bust down barriers and such, eventually the military realizes they can't fight a 360 front war where they are out numbered 100 to 1. So they GTFO. Any authority such as the president has been evacuated to some remote part of the world or the aerospace. Even if they can communicate to the masses, the masses no longer care what their leaders that abandoned them have to say. Next, the power would go out within the week. People get desperate for food, all the grocery stores are empty long before the power goes out. People will then turn to each other and start stealing, killing or imprisoning each other for food, or out of paranoia, or even a remote cruelty awakened or unleashed by all the horror going on all around them. So say it does only last three to five months. Most humans are dead. Nothing will ever be the same.

Because trained soldiers with automatic weapons and heavy protective gear < unintelligent, slow, careless and clumsy zombies.

Undead, which despite the current culture would be horrendously terrifying, mind numbingly so. My brother, a career marine, agrees with me that is exactly what would happen.
User avatar #182 - wallbuilder (04/18/2014) [-]
If they were freaked out they could just back off to collect themselves. Protective gear would stop zombies from being able to hurt them because they don't think to avoid protective gear or to take it off. They'd(them or fellow soldiers) just throw the zombies away if they locked up.

And I still don't really agree. They're trained to combat "the enemy". There would be shock factor but once the adrenaline kicks in and they collect themselves they'd function. It's not like zombies are the swiftest of threats that don't give you time to think.
User avatar #185 - vatra (04/18/2014) [-]
Well, on that last point it depends on the "type" of zombie it ended up being, as well as how many there are, doesn't matter if they are slow as snails if there is 500 coming at you all at once. Which according to zombie lore, is bound to happen when ever there is a mass gathering of humans in one spot for a long time.

But to the first point, how could they take a step back? They have to deal with the public and zombies, not to mention that they would be massively understaffed because they would have to set up these quarantines practically everywhere, either that or just set up a few, but then those are more of fortresses and wouldn't be very effective because the majority of the areas would be free of their intervention.
User avatar #187 - wallbuilder (04/18/2014) [-]
Let's just assume walking dead style, it's the most common. I'm talking about the initial outbreak. It's not like, bam, 99% of people are zombies. The military would eventually be called after a large incident happened, they'd arrive and start taking down zombies. By taking a step back I mean literally, not metaphorically. Taking the time to come to terms with what they need to do if they haven't already. Also, 500 zombies moving at 5km/h(3.5mp/h) is still moving at 5km/h. You can outrun them, easily. You can mount obstacles, use vehicles, climb ladders or other things.

Reached the comment limit.

I must not have been clear on my points. Because the human part of dangers is why I'm saying it would be so bad. In this situation people would lose their shit. My original comment points a lot of the human factors out decently. Now imagine the military has to deal with all of that, as well as undead walking cesspools of infection that only stop moving if you do enough damage to their head. Not to mention this thing could be your own mother.

Personally I don't think you are taking them seriously enough, I think there would be runners. Most people wouldn't stand a chance. How do you hit something in the head that is sprinting at you in an erratic gait. Military might be able to, but they'd waste a lot of ammo.
User avatar #193 - vatra (04/18/2014) [-]
Military likes to set up bases, and tend to have an attitude of defend the base. So you get a mass horde knocking on the door, they should just abandon the base and regroup, more than likely at first they will defend the base. And get wiped out. Suddenly there is panic in the military, setting up permanent staging areas doesn't work. Unless they can pull something off like a large concrete wall in an area without infected. But again, that's a fortress, and isn't very effective at all. Of course that would work for protecting citizens, but then they have to worry about crime and civilian unrest.

The only situation I can see the military being relatively successful is a fortress situation where they rule over their civilian charges with a spiked iron fist. Which of course makes them more hated than the undead.

Humans are far more dangerous than zombies*
User avatar #205 - wallbuilder (04/18/2014) [-]
There wouldn't be massive hordes, it would get stopped before then. And seriously? 10 LMG's would tear through walls of zombies, if they were grouped that much, tanks shots would annihilate them if they decided to use weapons with collateral damage. And helicopters could destroy them without concern. You've been taking media-fied zombies too seriously. Think about how it would happen in reality. A soldier and 30 zombies stand 20 yards apart. Lets say this guy is pretty good, a good shot and not scared(honestly, I think zombies would be FAR less scary than a live-fire firefight, they would just have more momentary shock factor). Without any difficulty at all he could kill them all, assuming he had ammo. If he ran out of ammo, he can leave. Now if you have more soldiers working together they can kill even more zombies! Now give them some helicopters and there's literally nothing the zombies can do. Throw in 4 mounted machine guns and you can tear a horde apart. You are literally saying that humans < zombies. Zombies are FAR more dangerous than humans and we've fought each oher for millenia. Mosquitoes are a bigger threat than a common zombie outbreak would be.

So how many years do you plan or want to survive without health care, supermarkets with unspoiled food, unspoiled medicine (yeah, medicine can go bad too), running water, electricity, the internet, internet porn, television, gas stations with gas, etc.

Plus, if you are 100% sure that you would survive, statistically that would lower the chance of survival for everyone around you, like your mom, dad, sibling, spouse or friends, cause you know, everyone in The Walking Dead will be having that special family-tale at some point.

Oh! And then there are the lovely neighbors!!

Not sure if someone mentioned this to you, but Patient Zero means you'd be the first infected, meaning you don't get to use this vast knowledge of yours at all.
#29 - hazenberdan (04/17/2014) [-]
Depends on what kind of "zombie" we're talking about. Is it the fast ones from games like L4D where they have special types? those are infected,but still techincally a "zombie". Or the normal type like from dawn of the dead and all that? If it's the former,you're probably fucked. If the latter,maybe you'd do a bit better.
User avatar #31 - manofbeardliness (04/17/2014) [-]
Well I was more-so thinking walking dead.
#32 - hazenberdan (04/17/2014) [-]
So the second. They're basically the same thing,just a little more...advanced. You might do well,maybe. What kind of equiptment were you thinking about bringing? You'd need a primary weapon,back up weapon,a close quarters weapon (IE knife or crowbar or pipe or something.),not to mention the ammo if you choose guns.
#96 - sixpoundsofjerky (04/18/2014) [-]
I know it wasn't directed at me, but my given dream set-up in the zompocalypse would be an HK-SL9SD, suppressed, with an angled grip, holo-sight, and a laser for quick acquisition. A Wilson Combat Tactical Supergrade, suppressed. A high-end combat/utility knife, a crowbar, and a trench-spike. Clothed in the form of an armored motorcycle jacket, wear a lightweight ballistic vest atop it, wear either armored pants or strap on some shin guards, steel-toe heavy industrial quality boots, knee and elbow pads, a full-face motorcycle helmet, and some tactical gloves.

Untouchable, unless you walk right into death.
#170 - hazenberdan (04/18/2014) [-]
Oh,I misread it. I thought you put MP5. Sorry about that. I haven't slept well as of late. Your primary weapon is fine.
#319 - sixpoundsofjerky (04/18/2014) [-]
I ignored the general supplies seeing as keeping food and water are a bit of a given. And I know what you mean, I've read the ZSG myself, but I'd rather have a higher chance of getting grabbed and be safe from most bites, than have a lower chance of getting grabbed. As for my sight and laser, they'd be unused most of the time, unless needed, and I'd carry spare batteries.

I'd also carry a few books.
#127 - hazenberdan (04/18/2014) [-]
I'm sorry but you would not last very long. Once your sight and laser sight are out of batteries,they're just for decoration then. Nice choice with the crowbar,but your primary weapon needs some work. Anything automatic and there's the temptation to just kick it to full auto and start mowing down everything,and if that happens,before you know it you'll be out of ammo,and you'll have to be relying on a pistol and a crowbar. Not an ideal situation. Not to mention that much clothing would leave you tired from running around in it. the *approved* loadout (from the guide),would be some form of a hunting rifle, a normal telescopic scope and a silencer for it,possibly a pistol with a silencer,a crowbar,around 10-20 mags of ammo for your primary, and 5-10 for your secondary. For clothes,as stupid as it sounds,a pair of jeans and a tight shirt,a bandana,shades,and a pair of industrial boots,as you had said. You're not supposed to be going rambo on the zombies,just trying to find somewhere safe to hide. Mind you,the ballistic vest would be nice to have incase you run into some unfriendly survivors. You would also want a backpack. Because on the run,when you're alone,you have to carry your armory,your infirmary,your cafeteria,and your own entertainment on your back. entertainment because,well,you need to keep your mind sharp. I think the others make sense on their own.
User avatar #44 - manofbeardliness (04/17/2014) [-]
I own a couple guns and have plenty shotgun shells and .308 ammunition from numerous years of hunting.
#131 - hazenberdan (04/18/2014) [-]
..well,assuming your primary would be a hunting rifle.
#129 - hazenberdan (04/18/2014) [-]
You have a good primary,but shotguns are not the zombie killing machines they're made out to be. To use a shotgun,you'd have to be up close enough to keep the spread from hitting everything BUT the zombie. You said you hunt,so I'm sure I don't need to tell you how important traveling light and being stealthy is.
User avatar #311 - manofbeardliness (04/18/2014) [-]
I don't know why I'm still going on about this, because FJ apparently takes its hypothetical's pretty fucking seriously, but whatever.

You can drop a deer from 80 yards with #4 buck shot, I've done it. There are also things called slugs which are just big fucking pieces of lead in a shell which can put gaping holes through flesh. All I'm saying is my hometown is like a haven if that were to happen. You can cut off literally all access to town, if zombies were to travel into the swamps they'd get so stuck they'd just decompose there.
User avatar #141 - wallbuilder (04/18/2014) [-]
Shotguns are good for close-quarters panic "I need to buy time" situations which would be any situation a zombie surprises you in a confined place but otherwise, yeah.
#142 - hazenberdan (04/18/2014) [-]
Yeah,they have their niche. Clearing buildings,surprise zombies,that kind of shit. I'm not saying stay away from shotguns all together,but just..not to pick one as a primary weapon.
User avatar #34 - AbsentMinded (04/17/2014) [-]
I think if a Zombie apocalypse happened it would clear up pretty quickly, especially near the equator. All that dead meat would rot real quick in the sun and just turn them into mushy jelly zombies.

#35 - hazenberdan (04/17/2014) [-]
Not really. Assuming zombies were a thing,I'm choosing to follow the zombie survival guide here. It says that while waiting for them all to just rot away into nothing could be done,it would take anywhere from 3-5 years. Plus,it wouldn't just magically go away,there are some people who are fucked enough in the head to walk over and be like "hey I wonder what it'd be like to be a zombie?"
User avatar #37 - AbsentMinded (04/17/2014) [-]
Yeah but those people wouldn't be so hard to contain, unless it was 28 days style rage zombies. I don't think a Walking Dead style invasiom would last too long, But rage zombies would fuck us all over.

#38 - hazenberdan (04/17/2014) [-]
You have to think though,not everyone's just gonna team up and be like "guiz if we want to survive we all have to work together!!!1" there are gonna be people doing whatever they want because the cops are all zombie chow or busy trying not to become zombie chow so they can murder,pillage,rape,etc etc.

People aren't going to be raping and pillaging they're going to be shit scared in their homes while the military goes around shooting zombies by the dozen and as soon as that's over things will start going back to normal.
