How would you survive?

When you hear the word "Apocalypse" or "apocalyptic, what pictures come to mind? Zombies? nuclear war? Solar flare hitting the Earth or coming too close? Although I agree that you would be right to think about any of the above, what about if the National Grid where to go down? I mean off line as in power supplies to the whole country going off line? I dont mean for just a few hours, power could be out for 24 hours or even a few days, weeks or even longer. Global or National loss of electricity is only one possible scenario, there are many possible ways that SHTF, heat wave, arctic blast, pandemic, human error, stock market crash to name a few. For the sake of this post I want to talk briefly about a loss of power, something that we all take for granted. We get up in the morning, get washed in warm water and put the kettle on, maybe make some toast while listening to morning radio, If the Grid were to go down, long term, we would soon become totally lost, no TV or interne

There are Monsters Out There...

It is late in the afternoon of a beautiful warm sunny day, there is hardly a cloud in the sky and the streets are deadly quiet. There is not a single child to be seen in a street filled with young families. Earlier today, I stood in the middle of a street and looked round, taking in a desolate landscape. You would be forgiven if you were to think that you had accidently walked onto a set of the movie 28 days later. It wasn't like this last week, or even two days ago. Kids were out on their bikes or playing football outside of their front doors. But not now, not after yesterday. See, yesterday morning a young girl was followed on her way to school by someone in a white van. When she stopped, the van stopped. When she started to panic and walk faster the van moved faster, following her as she made her way along the street. In a panic she turned and started to run, the van turned round and follows her. It wasn't until she started screaming in a panic as she ran past a group of par

Alien Life On Earth. A Theory.

Not everything post apocalyptic has to be zombie orientated. What happens if we were to be invaded by aliens from another planet? On that note, what would you think if I were to tell you that I believe that there is alien life on other planets? Let me prefix this, not only do I believe that there is life on other planets but I also believe that there is a very big "possibility" that, that life could be on this planet and moving among us, freely on a daily basis. Before you click away from my blog, I do have a theory about this. See, things on this planet, my phone, my cup of coffee (the cup any way) are a solid. They are a solid because at a molecular level they vibrate at a very slow rate. As an example, lets take an ice-cube. An ice-cube is solid water, it is a solid because at a molecular level the water molecules are vibrating at a slow rate. But, if we were to heat the ice-cube the molecules would start to vibrate at a faster and faster rate until they start to separate

How to put on a Gas mask.

"Taking you one stage further in your survival training".. as my old Territorial Army seargent used to say, We are going to look at how to put on a Gas mask or respirator. Giving the current global climate, the new cold war we have looming on us, what is happening in Syria as well as the apocalypse, having a Gas mask and knowing how to put one in is going to be a required skill. Not only will will this knowledge protect you from nuclear and biological/chemical warfare but it will also come in handy for those times when foofoo the dog drops one of his noxious farts on an unsuspecting room. With this in mind, I will be showing you how to put on your gas mask, Let's move on. In the event of any of the above scenarios taking place, take a deep breath and hold it. Take hold of the gas mask by the straps with the face of the gas mask facing down and pull the mask over your face and head. Check to make sure that the straps are not twisted and the mask is secure around your face.

How to Survive The Apocalypse.

It has finally happened, the apocalypse is here and you're sat thinking, "OK, What do I do now? How am I going to survive this"? Lets cut to the chase shall we, the first thing you are going to have to come to terms with is that it has happened , this is not a video game, there are going to be no cashes of ammunition and guns lying round in random places and no, there will not be a fully stocked first aid kit in every other house you go into, your survival depends on you and you alone, there will be no respawn and no do over. What ever the reason for this total shit storm of an apocalypse, whether it be a man-made nuclear winter we have just walked into, Zombies, Monkeys, Alien invasion, what ever it is, we need to get the mind-set that we need to Just Survive Somehow and we need to get it as a matter of priority. Luckily I am here to give some advise on getting through the first few days. So here we go.. The Basics. First thing we need to do is gather a few things togeth

The Walking Dead Season 8 Finale Thoughts

Warning! Spoiler Alerts. The end of last week saw what AMC called "Survival Sunday with the end of season 8 of The Walking Dead with "All Out War" and what a finale and the start of season 4 of the Walking Dead spin-off Fear The Walking Dead. For me TWD season 8 saw the "Ricktatorship" start to crumble as Rick Grimes (played by Andrew Lincoln) slowly started to lose it after his meeting with Negan (J. D. Morgan) and the Saviours in Season 7, his group started to do their own thing regardless of what the plan was supposed to be. Maggie (Lorran Kohan) took control of HillTop and Carol (Melissa McBride) joined King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) in The Kingdom and things stated to go pear-shaped in a very bad way, especially for Morgan (Lenny James) who, as season 8 marched on started to revert back to the old Morgan pre big stick. With the death of her husband in season 7 Maggie has shifted her focus to the people if Hilltop and their best interests, something which we
