1. Given the media intensity given to the Covid 19 (otherwise known as Corona or Wuhan) virus, there seems no reason to have posts on that very specific subject in several forums Accordingly, all of those posts will be moved to "Headlines". All new items on that subject should be posted there as well. This notice will expire on 1 April, or be extended if needed. Thanks, folks.

This is what is coming when the SHTF...

    A SERIES of sickening videos have been posted on the internet showing a man who claims to have deliberately "infected" thousands of women with AIDS.

    Calling himself 'Trashman' and speaking with an American accent, the masked man says he has infected between 1200 and 1500 unknowing victims with the devastating disease.

    He can be seen reading the names and ages of some of the women he claims to have had unprotected sex with in the video clips on website YouTube.

    The videos - one of which has been viewed 195,000 times - also feature a web address to a "gangsta" portal filled with pornography and where Trashman has a profile.

    In the first video Trashman is filmed reading from a list of women he claims to have infected.

    He gloats: "Today I’m doing a show about something that’s more important than killing rappers.

    "This here (piece of paper) that I hold in my hand is a list of women who I actually infected with AIDS on purpose.

    "So if I call your name and if you just happen to be on my 'I got the AIDS from that n***er’ list', then God bless you."

    He then goes on to name several women and their ages.

    President of People Living with HIV/AIDS, Brett Hayhoe, said the man “does seem genuine” in the video clips.

    He blasted: “It’s extremely disturbing (and) the guy needs psychiatric help.”

    AIDS can only be contracted once a person has been infected with HIV, but Mr Hayhoe said the man may have lumped the two together.

    Mr Hayhoe said if Trashman was telling the truth, it would be "absolutely devastating" for anyone who has had sex with him.

    He added: "For someone to hear that on a YouTube video is just disgusting.

    I love a great heartwarming story like that!
    Now, "IF" only a few of them boy's could get over here to Phoenix, and clean out a few of the derelicts that roam my areas at night, like so many "roches'...
    They tag everything and create quite a few problems.....

    About 7 years ago I was visiting my sister up in the hills of North GA. One night the dog was going nuts, so I took a gander out the window and saw a couple figures going through the garden and heading out round back. My sister only had a bow, but my brother in laws brothers lived up the road...a quick call to them and there was a posse coming. Anyways, I took on the two and they had guns...ruger and browning handguns. I did the almighty worst, but only because of my past training and faced them...anyways, they were laying the guns down when harvey, one of the bros stuck out his, 54 cal double barrel kodiak muzzleloader. We nabbed them and held them at bay until the police arrived. Once all the hoopla was sorted, one of the officers asked the bad guys, why didn't you start shooting them? you had the weapons to do it. First guy said "I didn't want to die man" and the other said "they weren't easy targets"...If a criminal sees anything easy, he will take that route, especially if he is by himself. Now this doesn't mean if the idiot is high on drugs. Most criminals look for easy targets because it's a quick grab and go without no fuss. If they are in a group, then everyone is feeling big and mighty and will take their time doing what they do best.

    Just rewatched. I wonder if they have their carry permits? Or is that just for us law abiding citizens?

    Yeah, figure just like the gun free zones, the permits are only for the law abidein peacable folks.

    Sorry to dig up this thread, but I cannot help but comment.

    Definitely a dose of reality! If anyone has any delusions of bugging out, in or whatever you had better plan for the contingecy of running into these ass clowns.

    I'm ex-military and unfortunately everyone I know is a sheep... food for thought...

    What's even worse than the "sheep'.....?
    The un-educated, and so-called, survivalists!

    Man I have run the gamut lately, and what I have heard, read, and been witness to is an absolute insane asylum.

    A lot of these newer survival sites. are direct "copy and paste", of many other originals....
    Now, I'm an older guy, and have a few trial and errors under my belt.
    But it just really irks me when some "youngster", and I mean less than 1/2 my age, proceeds to tell those that would dare lend an ear, about all the techniques and their survival experiences.
    These people are either seriously mentally ill, or have a homocidal fringe to their ignorance.

    Most of the gibbersish being spouted out there, is from some ex-military "kid", that saw something once, or, heard a story from another person, once upon a time.
    Their pure ignorance or maybe even stupidity, is sure to get some folks killed.
    They have less common sense than a pet rock.

    But, it's NOT limited to just the younger generation and their x box games!

    I've met some real winners recently here in Phoenix, that actually scared the heck out of me, and I don't scare easily.

    These gentlemen should know better than to get themslves into a situation they have. They are equal to my age.

    Lacking true leadership, is a sure sign of a problem, especially for a group.
    Now, you have a bunch of guys thinking this one person is going to be their saviour.
    Unfortunately, their "leader" hasn't got a clue, but he has them following his every word and whim like a bunch of lost puppies!

    I decided to steer clear of these people.
    The first sign, was a mandate for what each and every member of their group had to wear!
    In the desert, I can see wearing certain colors and patterns, but NOT the 'camo' someone chose for these idiots!
    Personally I think they'd been better off with either HOT PINK or maybe ELECTRIC BLUE!
    "MOSSY OAK" 'Brush', is a dead giveaway you do NOT belong in the red/orange sand of the nothern desert
    And, it went rapidly downhill from that point.
    What really shook me, was this group was formed some time ago, then all at once this one person shows up and becomes their leader.
    BEWARE of Those bearing gifts!!!
    "They chose poorly"

    I think I know what you are talking about. I take what I read on forums with a grain of salt. There are some that are good sources or will pique my creative/problem solving thought processes, but for the most part there are way too many armchair quarterbacks. I believe that if I see it then most others will too. Unfortunately, there is always some dullard that takes someone at their word and acts on it and ends up in a world of hurt... tough way to learn but some need it to be that way.

    On sheep:

    The sheep across the street will follow any convincing speaker. In particular I recall when my wife and me gave personal finance advice at their request and they never and I mean never followed it. Then they proceed to bitch about how their finances are wrecked... (My wife and I are both Finance exec's with MBA's so I'd hope we know what we are talking about).

    The other thing that drives me nuts is will they listen to anyone endorsed by their church... and follow blindly. They just cannot seem to think for themselves.

    I like my neighbors, and we share many special events together, but I fear that they are reflective of the masses and should/can not be counted on. In fact, I don't mention any of my prep's, but I know they will be coming around should the need arise. They already do for smaller things and I have proven all too often that I am prepared and well equipped in the past and that I can be counted on.

    The others in the neighbor hood are the types that if they witnessed a senior citizen getting robbed and beaten they would not want to get involved...

    There are some winners out there..

    On my little website, (a freebiee on msn), I am adamant about NOT believeing everything you hear or read, find out for yourselves....
    I actually explain that NO ONE there has any degresss, are NOT experts in any given field, but they offer advice, based on their factual life experiences.
    Not something plagarized from someone else, and not to be taken as an end all remedy to any given scenarion or situation.
    There are hundreds and more likely, thousands of sites I suppose out there.
    Most have some content that is worth paying attention to.....some are just goofy!
    In the past couple of years I find that a LOT of those sites are there only because of the advertising they have. Understandable, as it's not cheap or easy to have a decent site with a lot of content. I have to pay an additional $19.99 a month for extra space, as I use a lot of photos.....
    Some, I just don't know what they are trying to do, other than to fill their pockets with scare tactics....Gee sounds like our government at times!
    It's good to have discussion forums like this where good people can meet and converse with each other and get a fell for what is happening in the world around them. A Few are so self-centered they only see the $$$ signs!
    They will take advantage of anyone not street-smart enough to know what's what!

    The really scary thing for me is, in "this dump" they (the type of things you see in that footage) are the ones with the guns here!!
    Become a criminal,(yob) get a gun,(thrown in free of charge) and everybody leaves you alone.
    If you are law-abiding..ya done!...even the tax man will hunt you down.

    We have gotta watch out for pockets of these ANIMALS

    Greetings Survival Monkeys from ARR

    First of all, allow me to introduce myself, I am "Army Ranger Rick" F. Tscherne. I am making my rounds in visiting some interesting survival forums and came across yours by accident. And so I hope you don't mind if I stop by, say hello and spread the word about some new survival tips that I recently posted on my site. For instance these below..

    TOPIC ................................................MY COMMENTS
    Survival Kits - No, not the same ol'survival kit bs that other sites talk about, something different.

    Survival Weapons - Some new type of survival weapons that anyone can make and use much more effectively than what you find on other survival sites or handbooks.

    Fishing Kit Tips -What other sites fail or don't usually discuss or talk about.

    S.A.R. Aircraft - What is rarely ever mentioned or discussed on other survival sites or handbooks.

    Signaling for Help - Some new signaling techniques that I'm certain you've never seen nor heard of before that are quite effective.

    Zips & Sparks - Just my opinion and what others may not know about zippo lighters, spark-lites and my four-finger-fire starter.

    Staying-A-Float - Something small, compact, lightweight and can be easily carried in your pocket or packed in a small survival kit that'll keep you afloat in an emergency.

    I don't know if I can list my URL here or not and so I'll just say if you are interested in any of these topic above to just google "The Ranger Digest.Com" or my name (Army Ranger Rick) and you'll find my site and these tips I talk about.

    Well again, I hope you don't mind if I stopped by. And if I violated anything here I apologize and have no hard feelings if the moderator deletes this posting and sends me a "bad boy" email. But I promise you, if you go to my website and check out these new survival tips you won't be disappointed in what you'll see.

    Well thanks for your time and allowing me to stop by, take care and God bless,

    Nobody's gonna send a bad boy e-mail, however a link for Survival Monkey on yours would be appropriate and courteous thing to do. IMHO

    I'm a psychologist, and I agree. It's an epidemic.

    And if the time comes, with all of that gun waving and flashing around, it just takes 1 well-placed shot. At least I'll be able to hear them coming as they announce their presence by shooting into the air. [coffee2]

    Pfft... 90% will wipe themselves out in the mass hysteria, prematurely blowing their loads (ie: looting when shit's STILL hitting the fan) and as prepper said... announcing their arrival in a non-tactical manner of loud music, yelling, and shos of firepower; there's a reason most gangbanging cockroaches don't finish school... Good riddance.
