Zombie Defense

They say a man's home is his castle, in this case my home is zombie proof when I play 7 Days to Die. Obviously I need to do repairs now and then after the zombies come but they don't break through a freshly maintained zombie bunker. :)

7 Days to Die

So I'm playing this zombie survival game lately and it's pretty good. The only real complaint I have about it is zombies can actually spawn almost next to you once you think you are clear. That being said it's a really fun game and takes some pages from Minecraft but in a more post zombie overrun America.

Anyhow you can build forts and things and the zombies will do their best to tear it all down and get to you. So without further ado, here's the zombie fort I have under construction.

First image is the outside of the base. Notice the spikes all around? They make great zombie stoppers, especially when you reinforce them with extra wood and scrap iron. The dis-joined bridge with a ladder is a good design because zombies can't jump even though some can climb. :)

During zombie attacks it's nice to have a garden or two to be somewhat self sustaining.

Down in the bunker part the walls are two blocks thick of reinforced concrete with rebar. You can see I've been scavenging quite a bit from the ruined cities and towns with all the filing cabinets, fridges, coolers, flat screen TVs, etc.

7 Days to Die is best played on multiplayer with friends but single player can be a real hoot too. Especially when I go on a sledge hammer/chainsaw spree with zombies. One word of warning though, mind yourself when you see the zombie German Shepherds come, they are nasty!

Where was this when I was in highschool? (NSFW)

Seriously... where was this video when I was at a Christian high school back in the 80's?? I feel like I missed out on a great chance to have made use of the AV system in the gym where they held worship services during school hours.

I'm jealous of kids these days, they have access to such awesome things to point out problems and differences.

Ferguson Police and CNN

Best public relations move by the Ferguson Police Department ever. Trying to corral and possibly arrest Don Lemon of CNN during a live broadcast.

There is a bonus in this article, they also cover the arrest of a 90 year old holocaust survivor who was protesting as well in St. Louise. I can only imagine what is going through that woman's mind in the picture where she's getting carted off by the two officers.


Apparently a SWAT raid went bad when they threw a flash bang grenade in to a toddlers crib. The Habersham County, GA is apparently refusing to pay for the medical bills of the toddler their SWAT team goofed up on.

Talk about ducking out of responsibilities, stay classy Habersham.

Missouri Police Gassing News Crews

Looks like things are getting worse over in Ferguson Missouri.

Gassing of news crews and taking their equipment.

Boing Boing


Fun doings in Ferguson, Missouri!

New Your Times


Raw Story

Reporters taken in to police custody.

It's gotten so bad out there that the police even tear gassed a State Senator.

Looks to me neither side is going to win this one and a lot of people are going to suffer. Especially when you have police snipers leveling their weapons on crowds with children in them.

Raw Story

This whole thing brings up an interesting discussion about the continued militarization of America's police forces. Especially when you have arguments for and against it that are valid.

And remember folks, always lock up your guns!

Forty seven pound tumor.

You hear both the political right and left raging about how Obamacare is evil or good. Well here's one for the good book. A woman couldn't get a tumor removed because of a pre-existing conditions, by the time she got the insurance she needed from Obamacare the tumor grew and made things worse. Well check out the story here.

There used to be a woods here?

So recently someone bought the woods next to my house. This past Monday I got to watch a large machine with huge a bucket arm swat down trees left and right behind my house that were 60-70ft tall at least. It was pretty amazing to watch really and they actually removed some trees next to my driveway that were getting a bit dangerous after some recent snows this past winter. I'll have to get some pics.

Random Pic!

Only in Star Trek Online can you have a classic TOS Klingon D7 ship but not a classic Constitution Fed ship for end game.

Friends gone...

Been a while but oh well. I just did something I never wanted to do today. I put down my best friend because he quite possibly had tumors that were bleeding internally. I don't want to go in to much detail but it hurt like hell holding him the entire time he was put to sleep. He had 11 good years on this Earth.

I don't think I'll ever forget how he went limp in my arms. Rest in peace Hoss, I'll miss you, and I'm sorry.
