  2. Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) Survival
    At the suggestion of a few different members, I have decided to write a FAQ for this section to address some of the most common questions about radiation and nuclear fallout. I was going to make this an all-encompassing FAQ, but I think that would quickly become unwieldy. I think a separate...

  5. Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) Survival
    I admit I don't know a lot about this stuff. Let's say that I want to build a fallout shelter and mostly have the plan in my head and am getting to the point where I need to start drawing it out and putting it on paper. Here it is. If you have a creek that is 3" deep with enough of a flow that...

    WARNING! Projecting fallout deposition, concentration, and estimating resulting doses from hypothetical scenarios is a HIGHLY inexact science. No currently existing model or method can accurately predict the future weather patterns which inevitably affect the deposition and concentration of...

    I was really excited for Revolution at first. I was mostly excited because it was apocalyptic due to government collapse(kinda), and because I don't think zombies will ever happen(this is a personal belief, so please don't ruin this thread by arguing one way or the other). My personal taste is...

    I was thinking today on my daily run that, "Thanks to people that have become survival concious in the past month or so (because of the nuclear reactor in Japan,"refering mostly to people on the west coast and are concerned about radiation) that have begun to stockpile on things like radiation...

    With all of the recent events in Japan, does anyone thing Osama Bin Laden is paying attention? Instead of attacking sites in densely populated urban areas, an attack on a nuclear power plant could cause a lot more damage.
