    Going to have to agree with him, to a degree. A lot of the whole 'kill to survive' thing has been washed out of us by our culture, what with movies including talking animals and the like. The advantage goes to our hypothetical slaughterhouse worker when compared to... say... a lineman or office worker. Even better off are military combat veterans, LEOs who've been through a shooting or two, gang members, violent criminals and sociopaths. Basically anyone who has actually attempted to end someone or lacks empathy. About on par with the slaughterhouse worker are hunters, non-combat military/LEOs. People who have trained to kill or have killed a non-human.

    A zombie apocalypse would certainly seperate the wheat from the chaff

    But after an extended period of killing, humans become easily desensitized to slaughter.

    It is easy enough to cease to see humans as human (natzi death camp guards for instance), evil dead would be way easier to 'dehumanise'

    Any one still around after a week of zombie destruction would be hardened to the slaughter

    Only one man I know fits that description. And when I say "only one," I really mean, only ONE.

    So.....I've been watching the new season of The Walking Dead. Niggas need fully automatic weapons and suppressors in the worst fucking way.

    It ups the angst to just use single shot .22s.

    Yeah, they'll never be making a horror movie about me unfortunately. If it were a haunted house story, it would only be the length of a commercial. One "Get Out" from the mystery voice in the attic and I'd be out. Wouldn't have to tell me twice.

    And if it were a zombie movie, there would just be exploding body parts from bell to bell - so basically the last Rambo movie.

    Why would you call 10lb sledge hammer "nice" or "quick"? A 4lb ball pein hammer would be more than adequate, besides being much much faster.

    Out of all the styles of combat I'd probably pick Sharpshooting or Sniping. Lol Even then, I'd probably the unlucky mass that "got down with the sickness". :| Lol

    I actually wanted to make a thread about what Classical/Contemporary Martial Arts would support like a 'Hammer' based form of some type...I really want a dual pick hammers to swing wildly with leather wraps for the wrists when it could get slick with sweat/blood.
    • Tonfa
    • Kama
    • Arnis etc?
    • Something that strikes with the end of the weapon delivering force...


    For LULS, I have been playing around with the biophysics for a type of 'Stim-pack--for prolonged use (literally last attempt to live type ****, running, and or fighting)--to allow your bodies organs not to shutdown, harden, receptor down tolerance, lactic acid removal/buffering, energy based (eg. glucose) leading to your death (you want to avoid that, which is why you are fighting, death, literally. I'd like to ideally have it hooked to one of those auto diabetes things, like in crank...be sweet.

    Thoughts?

    (also, I missed this was an ebola style one, ignore the magic):happy:
    Daniel: I don't know if I know enough karate.

    Miyagi: Feeling correct.

    Daniel: You sure know how to make a guy feel confident.

    Miyagi: You trust the quality of what you know, not quantity.
