With over 6k posts I already know the answer to this question. But I am going to ask it anyway. Vampires have always fascinated me a whole lot more than zombies. But we talk almost entirely about Zombies. Finally there is a vampire thread, but typically the vampire threads dust in a page or two. There is so much more out there people!

When you think about supernatural SHTF what do you think of?

Zombies: The dead revived. Sometimes strong, sometimes not. Sometimes fast, sometimes slow. They can bite you and eat your brains. You can kill them with some well placed gun shots.

Vampires: The dead revived and inhabited by a demon. Very strong. A little quicker than the average human. Sharp fangs. You can kill with sunlight, penetration of the heart with wood, and decapitation.

Werewolves. The living transformed to dog. Very strong, very fast, sharp fangs and claws. You can kill with silver bullets, or just capture till the sun comes up and then kill their pathetic human self with something as simple as a Wal-Mart 9mm white box.

Giant Insects. The bugus made biggerus. Strong and fast usually. Sharp arm thingies and weird sharp mouth thingies. Sometime have stingers or poisonous fangs. You can kill with gun shots, but it usually takes a bunch of ammo. Your best bet is fire.

Something to get some Photoshops going:
The Looter. The New Orleansis steal the Heinekenis. Medium strength, able to lift large quantities of Heineken. Can wade through water very efficiently. Can kill with skunked beer. Easy to lure into a trap with shiny objects.

There's an other explanation (than the demonic stuff) for vampires. You ought to read "I Am Legend".

And, yes, vampires are what I think about for a "supernatural" SHTF. ;)

When you think about supernatural SHTF what do you think of?

Zombies: The dead revived. Sometimes strong, sometimes not. Sometimes fast, sometimes slow. They can bite you and eat your brains. You can kill them with some well placed gun shots.


Zombie hordes are the classic. They are unthinking and driven to feed. Not necessarily on brains. That was a joke movie from the 80s.


Vampires: The dead revived and inhabited by a demon. Very strong. A little quicker than the average human. Sharp fangs. You can kill with sunlight, penetration of the heart with wood, and decapitation.

Vampire hordes are less likely. Vampires generally want to keep their numbers low to keep an ample food supply. They are smart and calculating.


Werewolves. The living transformed to dog. Very strong, very fast, sharp fangs and claws. You can kill with silver bullets, or just capture till the sun comes up and then kill their pathetic human self with something as simple as a Wal-Mart 9mm white box.

So, how many silver plated bullets have you made through electrolysis? Coat them with molly and you may have an effective cheap defense against Werewolves. Also, I believe that you need silver to kill them in human form as well.


Giant Insects. The bugus made biggerus. Strong and fast usually. Sharp arm thingies and weird sharp mouth thingies. Sometime have stingers or poisonous fangs. You can kill with gun shots, but it usually takes a bunch of ammo. Your best bet is fire.

Giant Insects already live among us here in FL. Here is one that landed on my window last year. This is not a photoshop. He was somewhere between 10" and 12".

Note: we have had a drier summer this year, so I haven't seen one nearly this big this year.

I think Armageddon, and I sincerely hope to not be here when it happens.

I'm not sure how I'd offer my toys and disaster preps to less-believing family members who'd be "left behind"... I don't want to insult them but I'd like them to know that if my wife and I disappear, they can have my stuff...

A M.A.D scenario played out.

As one poster said "A global pandemic" which seems highly likely considering our dependance on anti-biotics only increases as strains mutate in response.

But you said supernatural...zombies for sure...those bastards are gonna be tough.

Vampires, werewolves and giant bugs aren't real. A SHTF situation involving any of these monsters is too far fetched to even worry about.

I've seen plenty of zombie documentaries thougth. Those things are the real threat.

Curse of Kane?



----------SPOILER FOR THE BOOK I AM LEGEND------------

It's a weird wind/dust borne bacteria. Depending on whether the body dies or not before a critical point in the disease progression the victim comes back as a clumsy, stupid zombie-like vampire or more mobile, thinking vampire.

But are zombies usually created by man screwing around with viruses and other crap?

If they're man created, then would it qualify as supernatural? Wouldn't supernatural be more like vampires, werewolves, and skeletons...

Your kidding right? There is a real picture or a real baby giant bug a couple posts up! Its a baby and will grow to be 10 feet long with a thirst for blood!

Vampires are real. Not in such numbers as the movies will have you believe, but I met a slayer once. She kicked my ass cause she thought my vodka/cherry slurpy was blood, and then told me to be carful cause she was hunting one. I might have been drunk at the time, but I remember it clear as mud.

Dr Ray Stantz: Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies. Rivers and seas boiling.
Dr. Egon Spengler: Forty years of darkness. Earthquakes, volcanoes...
Winston Zeddemore: The dead rising from the grave. (He must post on ARFCOM!)
Dr. Peter Venkman: Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together - mass hysteria.

I only have one and I can only find them online now. I have been asked a number of times for a loaner version so I think I will get one...I have to order a couple movies online anyway so I'll get a copy of the book too.
If I get my hands on a loaner I'll send it to you as long as you don't use the return address to settle some internet-grudge because of something insensitive I said months ago that I don't even remember.

So how wide is that window frame then? Gotta be at least 8" wide.



Here is a pic of the window today for more perspective. My monitor is a 17" LCD.

No worries, I can't remember last week, let alone months ago. And I usually only get in pissing matches with penguins.

Why does one window have a frame and the other doesn't?




It is not a window frame. It is the inside of the window. It looks like a frame in the first pic, but it is not.

They are the same window. It now has a shade.

They are smaller this year. The summer was dryer. They still make a bump bump sound when you drive over them with your car.

They are also DAMN hard to catch.
