Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse

There are all kinds of emergencies out there that we can prepare for. Take a zombie apocalypse for example. That’s right, I said z-o-m-b-i-e a-p-o-c-a-l-y-p-s-e. You may laugh now, but when it happens you’ll be happy you read this, and hey, maybe you’ll even learn a thing or two about how to prepare for a real emergency.

A Brief History of Zombies
We’ve all seen at least one movie about flesh-eating zombies taking over (my personal favorite is Resident Evil, but where do zombies come from and why do they love eating brains so much? The word zombie comes from Haitian and New Orleans voodoo origins. Although its meaning has changed slightly over the years, it refers to a human corpse mysteriously reanimated to serve the undead. Through ancient voodoo and folk-lore traditions, shows like the Walking Dead were born.

In movies, shows, and literature, zombies are often depicted as being created by an infectious virus, which is passed on via bites and contact with bodily fluids. Harvard psychiatrist Steven Scholzman wrote a (fictional) medical paper on the zombies presented in Night of the Living Dead and refers to the condition as Ataxic Neurodegenerative Satiety Deficiency Syndrome caused by an infectious agent. The Zombie Survival Guide identifies the cause of zombies as a virus called solanum. Other zombie origins shown in films include radiation from a destroyed NASA Venus probe (as in Night of the Living Dead), as well as mutations of existing conditions such as prions, mad-cow disease, measles and rabies. The rise of zombies in pop culture has given credence to the idea that a zombie apocalypse could happen. In such a scenario zombies would take over entire countries, roaming city streets eating anything living that got in their way. The proliferation of this idea has led many people to wonder “How do I prepare for a zombie apocalypse?”
Well, we’re here to answer that question for you, and hopefully share a few tips about preparing for real emergencies too!

Better Safe than Sorry

So what do you need to do before zombies…or hurricanes or pandemics for example, actually happen? First of all, you should have an emergency kit in your house. This includes things like water, food, and other supplies to get you through the first couple of days before you can locate a zombie-free refugee camp (or in the event of a natural disaster, it will buy you some time until you are able to make your way to an evacuation shelter or utility lines are restored). Below are a few items you should include in your kit, for a full list visit the CDC Emergency page.
  • Water (1 gallon per person per day)
  • Food (stock up on non-perishable items that you eat regularly)
  • Medications (this includes prescription and non-prescription meds)
  • Tools and Supplies (utility knife, duct tape, battery powered radio, etc.)
  • Sanitation and Hygiene (household bleach, soap, towels, etc.)
  • Clothing and Bedding (a change of clothes for each family member and blankets)
  • Important documents (copies of your driver’s license, passport, and birth certificate to name a few)
  • First Aid supplies (although you’re a goner if a zombie bites you, you can use these supplies to treat basic cuts and lacerations that you might get during a tornado or hurricane)
Once you’ve made your emergency kit, you should sit down with your family and come up with an emergency plan. This includes where you would go and who you would call if zombies started appearing outside your door step. You can also implement this plan if there is a flood, earthquake, or other emergency.

  1. Identify the types of emergencies that are possible in your area. Besides a zombie apocalypse, this may include floods, tornadoes, or earthquakes. If you are unsure contact your local Red Cross chapter for more information.
  2. Pick a meeting place for your family to regroup in case zombies invade your home…or your town evacuates because of a hurricane. Pick one place right outside your home for sudden emergencies and one place outside of your neighborhood in case you are unable to return home right away.
  3. Identify your emergency contacts. Make a list of local contacts like the police, fire department, and your local zombie response team. Also identify an out-of-state contact that you can call during an emergency to let the rest of your family know you are ok.
  4. Plan your evacuation route. When zombies are hungry they won’t stop until they get food (i.e., brains), which means you need to get out of town fast! Plan where you would go and multiple routes you would take ahead of time so that the flesh eaters don’t have a chance! This is also helpful when natural disasters strike and you have to take shelter fast.
Never Fear – CDC is Ready

If zombies did start roaming the streets, CDC would conduct an investigation much like any other disease outbreak. CDC would provide technical assistance to cities, states, or international partners dealing with a zombie infestation. This assistance might include consultation, lab testing and analysis, patient management and care, tracking of contacts, and infection control (including isolation and quarantine). It’s likely that an investigation of this scenario would seek to accomplish several goals: determine the cause of the illness, the source of the infection/virus/toxin, learn how it is transmitted and how readily it is spread, how to break the cycle of transmission and thus prevent further cases, and how patients can best be treated. Not only would scientists be working to identify the cause and cure of the zombie outbreak, but CDC and other federal agencies would send medical teams and first responders to help those in affected areas (I will be volunteering the young nameless disease detectives for the field work).

Those Were the Days

"Those Were The Days"
by Lee Adams and Charles Strouse

Boy, the way Glen Miller played. Songs that made the hit parade.
Guys like us, we had it made. Those were the days.
Didn't need no welfare state. Everybody pulled his weight.
Gee, our old LaSalle ran great. Those were the days.
And you know who you were then, girls were girls and men were men.
Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again.
People seemed to be content. Fifty dollars paid the rent.
Freaks were in a circus tent. Those were the days.
Take a little Sunday spin, go to watch the Dodgers win.
Have yourself a dandy day that cost you under a fin.
Hair was short and skirts were long. Kate Smith really sold a song.
I don't know just what went wrong. Those Were The Days.

mainstream media whores burst out truth attack...

shhhhhhh.....it's coming....just a few days away...prepare your ears now...get your mind ready....you'll never have heard such words from mainstream media ever before in your life and it is going to start a flood of such huge proportions that the world will not be the same ever again in the future and it will change more in each minute than in all the minutes that have ever come before and you will feel like you just do not have a second to catch your breath and shouldn't you have gone to work or bed or fed someone or something but you are paralyzed with the novelty rush pouring out of the pent up frustruations of decades of pressurized mainstream media whoredom as all hell breaks loose with a single word that a single mind will not be able to contain......(no, not that one...)

wait for it, days and temporal markers falling rapidly now and precursor events spreading rippling influences outward....

you'll hear it, then you'll know it. All prior to the break out is speculation. Afterward all will be lost in the torrents (hint hint) of the breaking dam, which is why i thought to just get a few days advance notice for naps and pies. We will need all the energy we have (us old farts) to just keep up with the trailing edge....which begins to race away from us by March 19th with release language compounding beyond our ability to chase.

The March 2012 Data Gap

A Persian miniature, Dhul-Qarnayn with the help of jinn, building the Iron Wall to keep the barbarian Gog and Magog from civilised peoples. (16th century Persian miniature).
 ~ ~ ~

The Data Gap in the webbots reports is a period of time where the available data gathered from the internet drops from 99% to virtually zero. The data gap starts in March 2012 and continues till May 2013. After May 2013, the internet regains some data, approximately 1% of the data before the data gap.

If you've been following the predictions of the rickety time machine (available from clif high at Half Past Human for $10 a report), you are likely hedging your own bet on how the coming March 2012 Data Gap issue will play out.

Here are several scenarios floating about the internet in these "last days":

From clif high: Your last 26 days of life...

"On March 2, 2012, the zionists (isreali mossad and cia agents) who are the stooges of the central banksters, will attack an American naval ship (as they did with the USS Liberty). 
They will try to sink this ship with a huge loss of life of American sailors. 
They will pretend to be Iranians to make you mad at Iran. 
They intend to provoke officialdom in the US and Russia and China into killing us all. 
Much of officialdom (masons, illuminati, agents of rome (opus dei et al), zionists) are in on this false flag attack, and their fervent hope for WAR to end your life, and the lives of over ONE BILLION other humans (your relatives on this planet).
So much of humanity on this planet has been made crazy by the rothchilds/rockefellers and all the priests/potentates and other assholes who put themselves on top of us all by lying and cheating and murder. 
They plan on yet another fucking great war to kill off as many of us as they can. 
If they succeed, and the war is created; 
no more taxes will i pay ever to anyone.
no more of their laws will i obey. 
if i survive the smoking, nuclear wasteland that will be the west coast of the USofA and most of earth, and there are any of the former central banksters and their masters alive, i will swear the remnant of my life to bringing them to justice. And i know what that means, even if the psychopathic pedofilic fucktards do not.
My message to them...all of officialdom is simple....you know fear. You live on the fear of others. Now it is your turn.
Fear us now.
We know you now.
Your names are recorded.
Your lives are in our hands.
Killing billions of us only convinces the rest that we have nothing left to lose.
You taught us to fear you.
Now the fear is gone, only hate remains.
Fear us now.
Or we come for you later."

From Benjamin Fulford and a reader from Israel:

> Hi Ben,
> I trust this finds you well?
> I have a good friend whose wife originates from Israel and has family there. She told me that her brother who apparently has connections to their military said that war with Iran is going to happen in a matter of weeks. He was adamant so much so that he is planning on leaving Israel within the next two weeks with his family.
> This is not the first time I have heard such things in recent days. It appears that the message that the satanists reign is coming to an end is not being taken seriously over there as he also stated preparations where at an advanced stage and already some activities/sorties have occurred.
> Can you comment on this, as these developments have occurred this week as I understand it?


First of all please note that President Ahmajinedad of Iran works for the Khazarian Satanists and is an integral part of their plan to start WW3. The Israeli criminal regime and their Rothschild and Vatican P2 lodge fascist paymasters are religious fanatics who think it is their divine destiny to trigger a war between Gog and Magog, kill 90% of humanity and enslave the rest.
Fortunately, sane people in the Pentagon and the Russian and Chinese military establishments do not intend to go along with this criminally insane scenario. However, there is a good chance the Satanists will try to go ahead anyway in which case most Jews in Israel (who are chumps for going along with this) will be offered as a holocaust or burnt offering to Lucifer.
What the Jews need to realize is that their top leaders are not Jewish but are members of the ancient pagan cult of Saturn (Satan), the planet now in close proximity to earth. They have been planning this for a long time so we must never under-estimate these people. The Jews need to liberate themselves from the mind-slavery they are being subjected to. The only people who want to kill the Jews are the Jews own leaders.

From Tibetan Monks:  

Remote viewing is nothing new in Tibetan monasteries. For thousands of years remote viewing in the middle of other spiritual activities have dominated Tibetan culture. What some Indian tourists came to learn from a few Tibetan monasteries under the current Chinese rule is extremely alarming and fascinating.

According to these tourists remote viewers are seeing world powers in the course of self-destruction. They also see that the world will not be destroyed. Between now and 2012 the world super powers will continue to engage in regional wars. Terrorism and covert war will be the main problem. In world politics something will happen in and around 2010. At that time the world powers will threaten to destroy each other.

Between 2010 and 2012, the whole world will get polarized and prepare for the ultimate dooms day. Heavy political maneuvers and negotiations will take place with little progress.

In 2012, the world will start plunging into a total destructive nuclear war.

And at that time something remarkable will happen, says, Buddhist monk of Tibet. Supernatural divine powers will intervene. The destiny of the world is not to self-destruct at this time.

Scientific interpretation of the monks’ statements makes it evident that the Extra Terrestrial powers are watching us every step of the way. They will intervene in 2012 and save the world from self-destruction.

When asked about recent UFO sightings in India and China, the monks smiled and said the divine powers are watching us all. Mankind cannot and will not be allowed to alter the future to that great extent.

Every human being though their current acts in life called “Karma” can alter the future lives to some extent, but changing the destiny in that large extent will not be allowed to that great an extent.

Monks also mentioned that beyond 2012 our current civilization would understand that the final frontier of science and technology is in area of spirituality and not material physics and chemistry. Beyond 2012, out technologies will take a different direction. People will learn the essence of spirituality, the relation between body and the soul, the reincarnation and the fact we are connected with each other are all part of “God”.

In India and China UFO sightings have increased in many folds. Many say the Chinese and Indian Governments are being contacted by the Extra Terrestrials.

In recent days most UFO activities have been seen in those countries who have indigenously developed Nuke capabilities.

When asked if these extra-terrestrials will show up in reality in 2012, the answers remote viewers are giving is: they will reveal themselves in such a way that none of us scared. They will reveal themselves only if they have to. As our science and technology progresses, we are destined to see them and interact with them any way.

According to the remote viewers, our earth is blessed and is being saved continuously from all kinds of hazards all the time that we are not even aware of. As our technologies progress we will realize how external forces saved us.

From a reader of George Ure's Urban Survival:

"Hello George, I have been enjoying your blog for 5 years now. I just had an idea tonight about a possible senario for the March 2-9 event that could be coming. Here is the senario: Suppose a very generous and genius person builds some kind of device that revolutionizes technology and humanity. It would likely probably be in the form of free energy. This device would be made of cheap common items bought off the store shelf. This individual would release the tech ( schematic, list of materials and tools, instructions) freeware on the internet, very likely youtube. The information would go viral on or about March 2nd. The TPTB would wake up in a panic on March 9th and convince the POTUS to flip the internet kill switch due to the threat of this tech to several of their monopolies. They move too late. The genie is already out of the bottle and refuses to be put back in. Killing the internet slows the genie down, but doesn't stop it. The TPTB rapidly become the TPTW. Oil, wars, and energy profits slowly dwindle away to near nothing. This would also fill the linguistic fill for something escaping from the lab. I am sure the inventor/releaser of the tech is probably somewhere in the linguistic fill as well. I have let my monkey mind go wild tonight. I hope that this is the event that might be coming instead of a very high mortality rate for humanity."

On This Day In The History Of Ponzi Schemes

Source: Wikipedia

What was tulip mania, you ask?
Tulip mania was a period in the Dutch Golden Age during which contract prices for bulbs of the recently introduced tulip reached extraordinarily high levels and then suddenly collapsed. At the peak of tulip mania, in February 1637, some single tulip bulbs sold for more than 10 times the annual income of a skilled craftsman. It is generally considered the first recorded speculative bubble.

Only 40 feet from drilling into a 20 million year old lake... Is anyone else concerned that they may release an ancient killer virus?

What if something more sinister lurks below?
