  1. Lets just say, for all intensive purposes, that the world has suffered a major societal collapse. You have survived, as have many other people... After the dust has settled and your imidiate needs taken care of, what job would you fulfill in surviving or even rebuilding? Personaly, I'd either become a scavenger or possibly a mercenary, based on my skills and personality. (Even though scavenger and merc are kinda cliche...) Some ideas... Doctor Teacher Farmer Trader Repairman Construction Etc.

    Makeshift weaponry thread?

    Prison shows talk a lot about toothbrush shivs (Shivs are improvised knives, made from sharp objects, shanks are sharpened). Put a razorblade in the bristles of a toothbrush and melt the bristles down to hold the blade. Screws work as well.

    The Colony

    Just started watchin "The Colony" season 1 on netflix. I love it... but they say that average americans are in the expirement, when in reality, they have 4 scientists, an ER nurse, a trauma doctor, a contractor, a martial arts instructor, an ex-cambodian spec. ops. guy and a parts fabricator! No fat kids, no housewives, no unemployed man, no disabled... its a bad representation of the population. Still an entertaining show...

    Something to ponder

    Techiniquly, the human population will be destroyed when the sun burns all of its hydrogen, rapidly expands, and makes us the closest planet to the sun... if we as a species even maake it that far. If you look at the ammount of time humans have been on earth compared to the amount of time of many other species, we're still relativly new to planet earth.

    Very, VERY, VERY good topic, thank you. However the rule of three you did was missing 3 seconds without mentality and, 3 months without love or companionship (WILSON!!!)
