The presence of Silver kills Zombies. Considering how much Silver the Chinese are buying leads me to the conclusion they have effectively removed Zombies from all public places. Our public places would also be effected in the same way if Americans purchased physical Silver in vast quantities as well.

I thought silver was supposed to kill werewolves?


Either way, I'm trying to procure a little more as my budget allows.

Silver does kill werewolves.  On a more serious note, China builds some rather impressive structures, and then they start to rapidly decay.  My parents went on and on about stuff China built that just turned to crap with all the corner cutting the builders do.

Silver kills both zombies and werewolves but is, sadly, ineffective against zombie werewolves.

imagine GCS filled with people who are infected with ongoing flesh-eating strep and you have the condition of a lot of people in industrial cities LIKE Guangzhou.  I thought this was gonna be a pollution in China article when I read the headline lol

I've heard a theory that these massive people moving operations are not for the general population but for the military. They are very afraid of their own population.

I've been to quite a few cities in China, Guangzhou is the absolute worst for air pollution and city-wide grime.

The only place I can recommend for a tourist detour if you happen to have a few hours to kill there...

...a ghost town the afternoon I was there, but maybe that was because of the intense heat.

Pyramids were monuments to make work projects.....of course Keynes would approve ! Slaves doing make work ! It's a Keynesian ideal to stimulate the economy ! Monedas 2011 I'm very wary of those who try to put a human face on Keynes ? He was so witty, so profound ...... maybe we should take a second look at his work ! Maybe he was just too damned smart for the rest of us ?

Maybe. It is a gamble at best. The assumption is that they're going to be able to "grow into it." It is highly debateable whether that is reasonable.

Given the general surprising tone of developments world over, I'd say we have NO CLUE why these empty cities and extra large everythign is being built.

None. Us plebs have only 20% operating information, enough to get by every day safely. No more.

These cities could be housing/hosting any number of soon to be displaced diaspora.

in Toledo, Ohio, several of our major grid streets go on and on, like 10 miles west of town, as if Toledo were going to be Chicago. Some of these grid streets serve as excellent boundaries for cornfields. So I guess we've got long term genius here too.

Rail systems to nowhere.

And in America, we made a big deal out of one bridge to nowhere. Though that fails to appreciate the level of fail that will ensue when we no longer have fuel to put cars and trucks on our 4 million miles of asphalt.

Talk about nowhere.

In DC Metro, they are rebuilding the entire Capital Beltway at once!  Huge traffic snarls, planning for a future...that won't come.  It's the busiest roadway in the US, but they could have built a lightrail around the loop for way cheaper.   The insanity of it all is mindboggling...maybe they will all be Nissan Leafs?  There won't be more cars needing more roads because there isn't more oil to power more cars.

If only GM had made lightrail cars instead of trucks, the future might have been so very different.

The scope and depth of our collective failure of the imagination will probably be lamented by subsequent generations for a thousand years.

I'm gonna be at a big family reunion this weekend and I'm sure the topic will come up at some point.  I'll hear the same shit, technology, oh "they" will just think of something.

How the fuck can you get anywhere when the people in "consensus" aren't smart enough to grasp the problem?  I struggle to come up with analogies, even at my level of intelligence, that can get the ordinary intellects to get their minds around the problem.

Consensus is the enemy of the truth.  Normal minds can only get linear growth.  That's how their lawn does it, how trees do it, how hills are shaped.  They have nothing they can compare compounding growth to and therefore it just doesn't exist and is beyond their comprehension.

They think technology will save the oil problem...look, mfers, technology is what permitted us to RAISE our extraction rate to meet the next doubling epoch.  It didn't create more oil, it pulled supply forward faster.  The technology did the opposite of what it was supposed to have done.  It just enabled faster consumption (Jevon's Paradox).

Well.. Aren't you the genius.. Grasp this.. Me and 2 family members with 5 full clips each shooting at mobs.. With more family refilling clips.. Now, if you were part of a mob, would you redirect yourself to someone/somewhere maybe not as well prepared or continue like a WW1 style suicide charge?

I'm not doing all of this preparing so it can be taken without a fight.. Regardless of what idiots like you think..

The mob just need some grenades, improvised explosives, some Molotovs or tough vehicles, then it won't matter how many shells you have; you get blown up, burnt out or crushed, unless you have a tough and defendable position!

Well I think you need to get your head out of your fucking ass because you don`t realize that everything you eat, drink and do is completely and wholly dependant upon oil. He can`t relax because of simpleton shits like you ignore and downplay the predicament. If everyone could at least read the exec. summary of the Hirsch report or even anything by Dmitry Orlov then I think individuals like Trav wouldn`t be so adament on how fucked we are.

It's funny. My 13 year-old son gets things that my wife refuses to contemplate. Yesterday in the car he mentioned (for some reason) that medicare was going broke. She got into an argument with him insisting that medicare would always be there because otherwise old people wouldn't have any medical care. Same with peak oil. Many people assume that because there is a desire that there will be a supply.

The Beltway is the mother of all cluster f---s.  I once spent 3 1/2 hours driving from the American Legion Bridge to I-95 North.  I smoked a whole pack of cigarettes.  D.C. is the East's answer to L.A., hot, overcrowded, with insane traffic.  No surfing, though.

The bankers have already took alot of flesh off our collective asses.

Wish the eaters would invade some special places in the fraudstreet area.

Zombies are dead meat, but still tasty. Just like aged beef.
