  2. Bear Grylls

    Heres how you escape a sinking car 101. http://www.megavideo.com/?v=HFE7FJUE
  5. Bear Grylls

    Look Bear Grylls is for entertainment only. You can get some stuff from him but a lot of the stuff he does is too dangerous for survival or done just for shock value. Navigating through abandoned mineshafts; rivers that run under mountain caves is to damned dangerous. Surviving in the bush is a slow and methodical process. Grylls is always rushing and making the pace of the show exciting. He does alot of shock value stuff that in using common sense you wouldn't do. One show he collected bugs by firelight in a jar to eat. He mashed them all together and ate them. Why not just cook them on the fire and eat them, at least they would taste better? Besides he cheats with his wilderness hotel golf tours. Les Stroud is fine but I'm now fond of Ray Mears. You learn actual bushcrafting skills from him. I like how he cleans a fish, very efficient. http://www.veoh.com/search/videos/q/ray+mears# Best part is when you download the Veoh Webplayer you can download the shows to your hard drive.

  7. If it was a pissing contest I would win. I have a narrow urethra and can piss accross a room into a toilet and not miss.
  8. I believe that there are several levels of existing. 1. Enduring: You don't know crap, your just trying to survive the best you can. ( Your Like a Baby ) 2. Surviving: You have some knowledge and experience, but in the long term is unsustainable. ( ) 3. Bushcraft: You have indepth knowledge of your natural suroundings and are able to make the materials and the environment around you work for you when you need it to. ( ) 4. Domestication: Domestication and breeding of plants and animals that allows for easier cultivation of food and use in hard laborous tasks. ( ) , ( ) 5. Engineering: Developement of technology to enhance human life. ( ) I believe in grasping one thing and not letting go of the other. I believe technology is an integral part to humanities future, but we should retain the knowledge of basic survival for when technology fails. People who are completely dependant on technology will be the least able to survive in unexpected situations.

  11. It's no problem, I really enjoy studying the social and technological changes of society after a GCE. I think Mike has really matured through out this series and it especially showed when Joey blew his lid. I'm looking forward to the season finale, which i should have up tomorrow.

  16. "Fallen Earth" (a new MMO going live on the 15th) has really impressed me with how true it stayed with the urban survival genre. First off it takes place near the Hoover Dam. This is because when 99% of the worlds population is gone this dam is able to generate power without any maintenance for 3 years. Next, everything in the game is...well...crap. No shiny armor or weapons, or slick vehicles. You start in dirt, live in dirt , and end in dirt. You find some fingerless gloves and some worn out shoes and your a somebody. The food is accurate to an urban survival mentality as canned dog food is on the menu. The vehicles that can be acquired are horses, ATVs, motorcycles, dune buggys ,and some with mounted weapons. The motorized vehicles look like patchwork roughed up vehicles. Also there are no refineries so fuel is very expensive. Weapons you start out with are lead pipes, wooden boards, Paintball guns modified to shoot copper pellet balls, crossbows, even found a golf club along the way. Clothing is pretty rough as well, just having a shirt on your back is doing good. The currency is poker chips, which makes sense because plastic will last a long time, paper money will wear out and will not exist over time. The game is basically about individuals and groups fighting for the few resources of the land for their survival. I found the beta enjoyable and think anyone who likes this genre will enjoy it as well. http://www.fallenearth.com/

  18. The Colony, episode 6 Loss and Communication http://www.zshare.net/video/64692589de8eddfc/
  19. Got another link for ya. This is a new MMO about to be released. Its called "Fallen Earth". Basically virus/nukes kills 99.9% of the population the rest has to survive it out. This link goes straight to the videos on the main site. I find the video of the sniper hitman killing someone just to get his next meal interesting. http://www.fallenearth.com/node/6
  20. The problem Mike had is that he was doing to others that he believed that society did to him, without himself realizing what he was doing to others. He believed society belittled who he was because he could barely read and did not have even a high school degree. In this new world he is at the top of the "food chain" he was in a position to belittle everyone else's experience and expertise. With the problem with the generator, i knew at the start , of the problem, that the professor needed to look at the generator, because he is an electrical engineer. Mike dicked with it for awhile and the professor came and solved the problem in 2 seconds. In this last episode Mike seemed to have learned respect for everyone's skills and experience, and has seemed to overcome his inferiority complex. Joey and Mike were a weak link in the situation with the new comers, that is why its good to have others around us to make up for our short comings in certain situations. Joey and Mike are the usual gate keepers, but this round it was the rest of the group that were the "on target" gate keepers. Joey was only a weak link in this situation, he helps the group as a whole. The tip off was that the new comers were already part of the environment(as previous owners), and were part of the experiment testing apparatus.

  22. A GCE can come about by various means. A few people can tinker with the genes of a virus(such as in "I am Legend"), there can be a magnetic polar shift(not a physical polar shift) and the suns rays knocks out power grids for decades, or the Yellow Stone super volcano can explode and destroy the west half of America and send the world into an iceageic period, giant meteor etc... The point is everything can change over night and its important to be aware of what changes will take place and be prepared for them when the inevitable happens. The best examples that we can observe is past civilizations that have gone through catastrophic times. Prime example is the fall of the Roman Empire and the beginning of the Dark Ages. There are similarities to the culture at the end of the roman empire and to our culture today. At the end of Rome, morality was at a all time low. There was institutionalized prostitution and pleasure cities(Pompeii and Herculaneum). The Id card at that time for entering prostitution temples were your feet. They had a mold of an adult mans feet at the entrance to the temple and as long as your feet were big enough you could enter the temple. Sexual relations with children was not uncommon even among the political elite. Also the entertainment with blood sports was at an all time high. Watching animals and people fight and be killed in the arenas. Today we have many industrialized countries that have legalized prostitution and the entertainment through the gory death of others is at a all time high(Faces of Death, 1000 ways to day series). In '1000 ways to die' we are entertained by watching people die gory deaths. I watched the first part of one episode and had to turn it off, as a man was cut in half as a trailer truck rolled over him and he lied there screaming, but this is only the enjoyment of someones accidental death or death not by purposeful entertainment means. With the up coming movie "Gamer"(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ubYTIazskQ) shows us the next step in moral decline that we may potentially attain, in the purposely of killing people for broad entertainment, such as in the Roman Empire. In the event of a GCE there will be a drastic shift in the sociological spectrum in how people think and behave. There will be a drastic shift to the right to conservatism and fundamentalism. This change will come due to the purpose of survival, group cohesion, and lack of a governing body. Sex, for instance will be brought back into the institution of marriage and sex outside of marriage will be taboo. This will be due to the lack of contraception, abortion and lack of institutionalized support for single mothers. In a nutshell sex=children and after a GCE people can not afford to have children outside the social security of marriage.There will be a rise in shotgun marriages for those who conceive children outside of marriage, because frankly how is a single mother going to make it alone? You will see the reinstitutionalization of broad and public capital punishment , such as in this episode of Survivors (http://www.megavideo.com/?v=CX9JDDZI). After a GCE there will not be institutionalized law enforcement. There will be a rise in the sentence of death and limb cutting for crimes such as murder, rape, and theft. The crime of theft will no longer be as trivialized ,as stealing someones property could potentially kill them(such as if a persons food supply is from fishing and you steal his fishing rod). The execution of punishment will become public, and the mass public will observe peoples punishment being executed. Believe it or not, this does curb crime. In Singapore, which has the toughest crime laws in the world, the punishment for drug possession is death. But in Singapore you can sleep with your front door wide open. My brother, who was in the navy at the time, had shore leave in Singapore, one of his mates decided to have a good time while he was there. In short he got high and punched out a female officer of the Singapore navy. Needless to say, the boat left without him. There will also be a loss in technology after a GCE. It was in fact the Roman Empire that first developed the steam engine, but that technology was lost in the Dark Ages. After a GCE many technologies we have benefited from will be lost(who is going to know how to make an Ipod). There will be a shift for renewable sources of energy ,as Gasoline and Petrol will be quickly consumed, and alternative ways developed to attain comforts of the pre-GCE life style, such as a solar water heater instead of electric. That is it for now. :smoke:
  23. Speaking of human depravity, this is messed up. Darren Brown gets 3 out of 4 people to commit armed robbery without even being told to do it. He just makes them feel good about stealing and they do it on their own. They replicate the Milgram experiment as well, and one of them wished there were more buttons for greater shocks. I love it when he gets them to steal candy from the store and the clerks are like "what the hell , all these people in suits stealing candy, maybe we should just ban people in suits for tonight." http://www.guba.com/watch/3000097498
  24. You don't know the half of it. There is a 60% chance that , under the right circumstances, I could convince you to torture someone to death. Think about how different we really were from the citizens of Germany in the 20s and 30s. They were just like us, thinking they they could never do brutal and evil acts, but many of them did. They were suffering from a catastrophic depression, (They needed a wheelbarrow full of cash to buy a cup of coffee.)which is something that our recession could turn into. The Nazi party offered them dignity(which was taken after their defeat in WWI) and a scapegoat, the Jews. We could easily scapegoat the Chinese and those living in America. I Like this Quark quote " Let me tell you something about humans, nephew. They're a wonderful, friendly people as long as their bellies are full and their holosuites are working. But take away their creature comforts, deprive them of food, sleep, sonic showers, put their lives in jeopardy over an extended period of time and those same friendly, intelligent, wonderful people become as nasty and as violent as the most blood thirsty Klingon. " There are several factors that go into whether or not a person will torture another person to death. Legitimacy, necessity, personal and moral responsibility, and victims responsibility, . If there is the backing of the military and the government, it would provide legitimacy for you to torture someone to death. Necessity may come in the form of "he has information we need to save American lives". Responsibility can be put on you ,such as in the Stanley Milgram experiments, "you have to do this, you agreed to participate in this experiment" and the victim can be held responsible as its his fault and he deserves whats coming to him. Another factor is social pressure. In Solomon Asche's experiments, he got subjects to give knowingly wrong answers to questions because everyone else was giving the same wrong answer. "if everyone jumped off a bridge would you do it?" The answer for many people is "yes". I know my own threshold, if someone kidnapped my wife and kids and I was 100% sure that guy in front of me knew where they were, I would have little qualms with injecting them with salt water and watching it rip apart his muscles and internal organs to get my family back. I like in the film Rambo 4, the missionary says to Rambo, "killing is never justified" and a few scenes later ,watching Bermes soldiers shoot up his friends, he kills a man by beating him with a rock(so much for "never"). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXOLjOI0cT0 (2:30-3:10)(warning blood and gore scene) We all have our threshold, it just varies from person to person and based on their level of morality and what they believe.
