If you haven't seen it yet, you should, really thought provoking, and unlike "The human centipede" we
can say that this movie REALLY is 100% medically accurate :D

Soon after her return from a business trip to Hong Kong, Beth Emhoff
dies from what is a flu or some other type of infection. Her young son
dies a few days later. Her husband Mitch however seems immune. Thus
begins the spread of a deadly infection. For doctors and administrators
at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, several days pass before anyone
realizes the extent or gravity of this new infection. They must first
identify the type of virus in question and then find a means of
combating it, a process that will likely take several months. As the
contagion spreads to millions of people worldwide, societal order begins
to break down as people panic.

Oscar Mike to the hills

Tomorrow I'm leaving the big city to go to a small city in the hills.
Moving totally sucks, I have tons of stuff to pack, is in moments like this when you understand the
Tibetan monks when they say that material properties just make you a slave, your stuff is an anchor
Anyway, I'm pretty happy as living in a big city is a daily torture.

Stanislav Petrov, The Man who Saved the World

 A friend just passed me a link to The history Onyx blog where there is a great article about a Russian guy
who decided not to launch a nuclear counterattack against the US in 1983.
Its a very interesting read specially for those who think that us preppers are just a bunch of crazy guys and
that nothing bad will ever happen.

Usually it takes something monumental to be realised as a truly great historical figure. Such a person is
normally well-known for doing something brilliant that has truly benefited the world and the people within
it.The likes of Martin Luther King, Winston Churchill, Ghandi and countless others leap to mind as being
among that ilk for the immense contributions that they have made. Sometimes, however, it only takes a small
act by an unknown person to truly do the world a favour.

The unknown person of which I speak is now an elderly man in his early 70s who is quietly seeing out his
days in an apartment block to the north-east of Moscow, a retired soldier who, thanks to a decision he
made nearly 30 years ago, warrants a far greater deal of appreciation from history than his anonymous
lifestyle would suggest. That man is Stanislav Petrov, the man who saved the world from mutually-assured-

It is 1983 and the Cold War is getting too hot for comfort. the hawkish anti-Communist Ronald Reagan is in
the White House and an increasingly paranoid-clique of elderlies surround the less-than-healthy Yuri
Andropov in the Kremlin. Relations between the United States and the Soviet Union are at their worst since
the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962 and there is a genuine sense of fear in the corridors of power in Moscow
that the Americans are planning to jump them with a surprise nuclear attack. Although it was and remains
standard US policy never to strike first with nuclear weapons, Andropov and his cohorts within the Soviet
politburo and the spy agencies believed that President Reagan was capable of ordering a first strike and was
planning to do just that. It was in the Moscow mindset both to expect an American attack and to react to it
very quickly.

The fact that the Soviet military and political leadership were on hair-trigger alert coupled with the less-than-
infallible nature of their early-warning systems made an accidental nuclear war a terrifyingly realistic
prospect, although it remained largely unknown to much of the world's population at the time. Throughout
1983 relations continued to get more and more tense. On the other side of the Iron Curtain, much of
Western Europe was engulfed by a storm of protest over American plans to install Pershing tactical missiles
in West Germany. The Americans themselves were doing little to dampen down the tension. Things took a
turn for the even worse on September 1st when Korean Airlines flight 007 strayed off course and entered
Soviet airspace whilst en-route from Alaska to Seoul. The Soviet air force shot the plane down without
asking questions, killing all 269 people on board, including a United States congressman. American public
opinion suddenly took a dangerous swing against the Soviets.

President Reagan himself had already sent alarm bells ringing in Moscow when he described the Soviet 
Union as an "evil empire" during a speech in Florida before going live on American TV to announce the
launch of his Strategic Defense Initiative, which has become known to history as Star Wars. This idea
involved using satellites to shoot down incoming Soviet missiles from space. If the Americans could put this
concept into reality it would render the whole of Moscow's massive nuclear weapons stockpile obsolete.
This further instilled within the Soviet leadership the belief that they ought to act sooner rather than later in
order to avoid being outwitted by Washington.

This is where our friend comes in. Lieutenant Colonel Stanislav Petrov was serving in the Soviet Air Defence
Forces right in the middle of this rather dodgy period. On the morning of September 26th 1983, less than a
month after the Korean Airlines incident, Petrov was the officer on duty at the Serpukhov-15 operations
bunker near Moscow. This particular bunker happened to house the command centre for the entire Soviet
early-warning system, codenamed Oko (Russian for "eye"). Petrov's job was to observe the satellite imagery
being fed to the big screens and report immediately to his superiors should any of the eyes-in-the-sky detect
incoming American missiles. Petrov himself obviously did not have the authority launch a counterstrike but,
given the dangerously high level of alert that the Soviets were operating under, such a response was only a
phone call away.

The Mother of all Decisions 

That particular night in the bunker seemed to be just the same as any other. It was just after midnight in
Moscow whilst it was beginning to get dark in the United States. In the main operations room of
Serpukhov-15 a bored Petrov and his underlings watched with forced interest as the satellite images showed
the cloak of darkness advancing east to west across the North American landmass. Despite being well
aware of the delicate international situation, nothing seemed out of the ordinary to the men present. They
knew they had to be ready for anything yet few of them really believed that the Americans would possibly
want to attack, effectively assuring their own destruction as well as that of the Soviets. At that moment the
quiet was suddenly shattered when the piercing wail of the alarm rang out and the main screen suddenly
turned white and a single word flashed up in red Cyrillic lettering:


Petrov immediately sprung into action and checked the computer systems. They indicated that a single
American missile was in the air. The young officer resisted the urge to fly into a blind panic and immediately
suspected a false alarm. He was already aware that the early warning system was far from infallible and
prone to mistakes. Either way, a single missile was simply not logical. If the Americans really were going to
launch a first strike then surely it would be all-out, using every bomb and missile available to cripple them
straight away and minimise retaliatory efforts. Nonetheless Petrov scoured the satellite imagery for any
evidence of a missile launch flash occurring in the United States but the fact it was getting dark there made it
difficult to see anything. He telephoned his superiors who, thankfully, also concurred that some form of
computer error had taken place. Once his superior had hung up, Petrov overrode the early-warning system
and shut down the alarm, bringing the situation abruptly back to normal. He and his colleagues simmered
down and slumped back into their chairs, thanking themselves for averting a catastrophe. Oko, however,
was not done frazzling nerves
Barely minutes after Petrov had shut down the system, the word LAUNCH suddenly flashed up on the big
screen again, accompanied by the alarm. The computers were still detecting the same missile launch...... plus
a second. There were now two American missiles in the air...


Petrov and his men stood frozen with horror. It now looked like the impossible was happening in front of
their very eyes. The computer was showing five missiles inbound from the United States. This was it, they
thought. Reagan had given the order to take out the Soviet Union. Surely now the only thing left to do was to
call in the reports and recommend a full retaliatory strike. If the Soviets were to launch, they had to decide
quickly. Leaving it until the inbounds could be confirmed by land radar (which could not see beyond the
horizon) would limit Moscow's response time to mere minutes.

As before, Petrov checked the satellite images and was still unable to spot any missile flashes. He did not
feel comfortable about phoning his superiors again, especially without further confirmation. He checked the
computers again and found no further launches, still just the five. Once again Petrov began to doubt the
system. Five missiles were a lot more than one yet it still did not make sense with respect to how the
Americans had been expected to lauch an all-out strike. The decision on whether to call it in or not had to be
taken right then and there. As the young officer wrestled with his conscience, history hung in the balance.
After a brief hesitation he made his decision.

He overrode the system and shut off the alarm, without informing his superiors.
By following his good sense rather than following orders, this one man had effectively saved the world from
a nuclear holocaust. One can hardly imagine the horrors that would have taken place had he instead decided
to make that telephone call. A report of five inbound missiles would almost certainly have been enough to
send the paranoid Soviet leadership over the edge. Soviet warheads would have begun bearing down on
Europe and North America, prompting a full NATO counterstrike. By the time the Soviets would have
realised the first launches were a false alarm it would have been far too late.

The Aftermath 

In the end it turned out that Petrov's suspicions about the incoming phantom warheads were correct. The
source of the false alarm was merely sunlight bouncing off high-altitude clouds over North America, which
the Soviet satellites wrongly interpreted as being missile launch flashes. Petrov was vindicated but his
superiors were left feeling rather embarrassed by the exposed flaws in the early warning system and they
conspired to keep the incident under wraps. Petrov himself was never allowed to occupy such a sensitive
role again and he ultimately took early retirement, suffering a nervous breakdown. He was never given any
award or recognition by the Soviet or Russian governments for what he had done.

Knowledge of the Petrov incident only became known to the public after the fall of the Soviet Union
(naturally). It has subsequently brought considerable public attention to the aged and reclusive Petrov, who
continues to insist that he is not some kind of humanitarian hero and was simply doing his job. Nonetheless
he accepted an award and $1000 from the Association of World Citizens "in recognition of the part he
played in averting a catastrophe" (minor understatement there). He has also visited the United States and
been honoured by the United Nations, although the Russian representatives there were only too eager to
point out that Petrov alone could not have started a nuclear war. That may well have been the case but in my
opinion, given the state of the world in September 1983, had that one man made a second phone call to his
bosses on that night in the bunker then the world today would be a VERY different place.

Whitehouse shits on the republic

Today I got in the whitehouse page to see how Obama wants to interfere in Congo's business continuing to
violate the free will of other countries people and I found something that I don't like at all, there is a banner
that says "We can't wait on congress: the time to act is now" let me translate that for you... that means
"Fuck the republic".

That logic is extremely dangerous, a republic has three different branches that have their own task and the
duty to control the other branches, so whenever you have a branch that takes attributions that don't belong
to it you are violating the republican way of government.

If you don't see a problem in it, let me tell you that usually the abusive branch is the executive one, so your
republic starts to turn in a dictatorship.

In Argentina we have abusive executives since the 90's, declaring by decree, using "super-powers" or buying
wills to pass the bills that the congress won't approve, and the justification for it is the same spiteful logic we
can see in that whitehouse webpage banner.

So remember, every time you allow a branch to stomp on another, one more piece of the republic falls.

About Argentina

Hey guys, I'll rant for long this time

This is just the first post of the series, hope you enjoy it.

Argentina is a country that is screwed up since a long long time.
Our constitution is a bad copy of the ones from United States and France, countries that declared their
independence a few years before us.
For instance, in the article 21 it says that “every citizen has the obligation to arm itself to defend the country
and/or the constitution” that’s fantastic, but then it’s screwed as it continues “in accordance to the laws
dictated by the congress or decrees by the executive”.
So, you can defend the constitution only if the ones who are violating it allow you… pretty contradictory if
you ask me.

Then article 25 says that the government can’t restrict or limit the immigration of any foreigner with good
intentions and will to work. Reality shows that this open borders policy allowed and continues to allow the
immigration of tons of bad people, like WW2 war criminals, terrorist, drug dealers and entire families from
countries in the region looking for a government to provide them houses, health and education.

In Argentina people thinks that the government has the obligation to provide you with houses, work, free
education and free health services, so there are tons of people who continually do protests, cut streets and
highways etc asking for what they think is their right, most of times that people is used with political goals by
the opponents of the party that has the power at the moment.

Long history short, I never saw or read about a good government in this country, we had a collection of
demagogues populists, military dictatorships and utterly useless guys.

The inflation

I was a child but I remember the hyperinflation…
In the picture you can see the inflation numbers, in the ‘89 we had like 8000%
The stores changed the prices of their products multiple times a day, so when the people got their salary
they went running to the stores to spend it all in food.
I remember the bills starting having so fucking many zeroes in them that the people started calling the bills by
their color because they had no clue how to read those numbers, everyone was a millionaire at that time

So, the riots started and Alfonsin, the president at that moment had to leave.

Then Menem won, and the country was somewhat stabilized, but the price of it was the destruction of the
national industry, the unemployment started to grow like crazy, and in 2003 it was more than 20%

In 2001 was the big crisis when the riot started and finished with the president at that moment, De La Rua,
resigning. The country hit rock bottom at that moment.
There was a ton of people that had not work, the banks run out of dollars so all the deposits were retained
in what is known as “El Corralito” so you couldn’t retire or use your savings, there was a small quota of
money you could get monthly.
The states governments didn’t have any money either, and the federal government didn’t send any, so they
started emitting bonds that were used as normal money.

It was in those years when bartering started, in each town started to appear the “bartering clubs” where
people offered services or things to exchange.
That helped a lot of people to pass those hard times, but it also was used by delinquents in order to sell stuff
that previously was impossible, like forks, doors, cups, toilets, you mention it.
At that time I was living in a small city on the sea shore, so there were a lot of houses that were only
occupied in summer, those houses were completely emptied.
So the government tried to enforce some controls on the bartering clubs, but they continued until the
situation somewhat stabilized and then they closed.

2001 was a hard year, but this wasn’t Mad Max, the people kept going to work everyday, schools and
stores opened, we still paid taxes and the police could detain you and send you to jail just like always.

The rioting was in some specific places in the federal district, the rest of the country continued as always,
shitty but working.

The insecurity on the streets grow, but that’s the product of years of abandonment and lack of education and
culture of work, drugs have a big part on it too.

In 2003 50% of the country was under the line of poverty, that means that 50% of the country didn’t have
the money to live a standard life, and there was a 25% of indigence.

Because of that the “Villas”, similar to the favelas in Rio, started to multiply and continue to grow everyday
non stop. In there the state has no presence, and drug dealers and delinquents rule. 

Now everyday people is killed in car robberies and everyone lives scared, even smaller cities and towns
started having serious security issues.

I could talk about that for a long time… let’s finish this part in here, I’ll add more later.

What I can tell you is that things aren't like in the book Patriots, when there is an economic collapse, the shit
doesn't hit the fan to everyone at the same time, there isn't a clear line between SHTF and no SHTF.
People tries their best to continue with their usual life, because they have a wife and sons to feed, and if you
get your ass killed or in jail they'll be alone when they need you the most.
You start living cheaper, you stop spending on useless crap, some people grow food in their gardens, or rise
animals to eat, or look for new ways to get some money, like collecting used paper to sell it to recyclers.

Some people does crazy things, like and old man whose son was sick and needed the money for medicines,
so he bought a deactivated grenade and went to the bank to tell the manager that if they didnt give him his
dollars everyone would die. The old man got his money, but a few days later was arrested.

I'm looking forward for this movie

Directed by Tim Szczesniak. Starring Robert Pralgo, Vanelle, Jeff Briggs. A rare astronomical
event causes a permanent worldwide black out, forcing residents of a middle-class suburb to get
by with no modern conveniences. The community pulls together and adapts to a simpler way of
life, but their success draws the attention of the less resourceful residents in the area and soon
results in a war between subdivisions

Soda bottles as light bulbs

Around the web I found how to light dark rooms without electricity using soda bottles as light
bulbs, each of the 2 liter bottles is the equivalent of a 55W lamp, your mileage may vary
depending on the lighting condition in the outside of course.

To make it you need a clean soda bottle, a few liters of distilled water and 3 teaspoons of bleach.
The distilled water is to have more clarity and the bleach won't allow the formation of fungus
inside the bottle.

The light bottles can work for as long as 5 years and they are extremely cheap.

Here you got a few pics and then a video of a Brazilian guy that uses the light bottles in his workshop.

The Walking Dead Season 2 Trailer

The zombies are comming back and I like it... While you wait until october for season 2, you can
read the comic books, they are really really good, and belive me I never liked comics.
The zombies in the comic are just an ingredient as it is more about a group of people trying to
survive really shitty times.

LDS Preparedness Manual

A lot of people in the prepper community are recommending this book, and I plan to do
the same :D

This book is a collection of essays written by members of "The Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter-day Saints" aka Mormons, but don't worry, the manual only has an intro explaining
why the church ask their followers to prep, and the rest of the chapters are pure gold.

This book in its 222 pages covers food storage really deeply and has tons of checklist
that are really handy.

The best of all is that you can get an online copy fro FREE from:

You also can order printed copies for the price of the paper, that is 8 bucks, sadly
is impossible to find this book in any major bookstore :S

I would like to thank the Mormon community for sharing all this knowledge and I'll
leave you with an excellent coverage of this book courtesy of TheSurvivalBookshelf

Terminal ballistics reality


Terminal ballistics, as defined in the wikipedia is a sub-field of ballistics that studies the behavior
of a projectile when it hits its target. Based on the terminal ballistic properties of a projectile we
can talk about its stopping power when hitting a living target, and that brings me to the origin of
this post.

A lot of studies about stopping power are demonstrated using ballistic gel and as much as it can
resemble human flesh, the gel doesn't have bones, or tendons and for sure it fails to demonstrate
the gory results of a hi speed bullet ventilating someone.

So, in order to complement those clean scientific studies using gel we need to look at the darkside
of this matter, Vincent J.M. DiMaio wrote a great book about it called "Gunshot Wounds:
Practical Aspects of Firearms, Ballistics, and Forensic Techniques", you can buy it but is fooking
expensive, like 125 bucks, also you can ask google and find a copy to see if you really want to
expend that money on it.

But anyway, that book was written by the nation's foremost authority on gunshot wounds and
forensic techniques as they relate to firearm injuries, Gunshot Wounds: Practical Aspects of
Firearms, Ballistics, and Forensic Techniques, Second Edition provides critical information on
gunshot wounds and the weapons and ammunition used to inflict them. The book describes
practical aspects of ballistics, wound ballistics, and the classification of various wounds caused by
handguns, bang guns, rifles, and shotguns. The final chapters explain autopsy technique and
procedure and laboratory analysis relating to weapons and gunshot evidence.

Just in case you didn't notice I copy & pasted the product description :D

But the problem with that book, is that it explains a lot about gunshot wounds, but doesn't show
much. Yes it has some pictures, but you need more and in color to get at least a glimpse of the
real thing.

So I found a blog that does just that, and besides it shows the cruelty of Mexican Drug War
where 15,273 were killed just in 2010, that blog is called "Blog del Narco", and it shows pictures
and videos depicting the results of the confrontations among the different cartels or the killings
that happen everyday in Mexico, sadly for a lot of you that blog is written in spanish.

Be careful the content of the blog is extremely graphic, you can find it at

The origin of the mall ninja

Today I want to share with you a link that will reveal
the infamous history of the mall ninjas.

For the ones who doesn't know what a mall ninja is
I'll quote BJJ Grappler explanation in his excelent
thread called "The ULTIMATE mall ninja thread" at

m-aal nin-jAH : An inexperienced (or even sometimes experienced), over-enthusiastic weapon
owner (usually firearm), who's primary modus operandi (that's mall ninja talk) includes dressing
and equipping for combat in an otherwise peaceful urban environment. The mall ninja can often
be found carrying more than one weapon of the same type, handcuffs (although legally unable to
perform an arrest), wearing ballistic vests or tactical gear while performing mundane daily tasks
such as mowing the lawn.

Sex: Primarily males
Age: Teens to 40's
Race/Ethnicity: Primarily caucasian
Body Type: Often overweight, sporting a gut, however the occasional athletic mall ninja can be
spotted and may be harder to identify until spoken to.
Marital Status: Often Single/Virgin but more increasingly Married/Neglected
Hair: Short to Long
Extracurricular Activities: Posing for pictures to post online, weaving tales of heroism and
danger, bragging, spurts of exercise, watching war movies for 'tactics', watching the tv show
"Cops", buying a foregrip or laser for their DPMS AR-15 or pistol, worrying more about how
deadly they look than about the car that is about to run them over.

Ok, so the origin of the "Urban Ninja" can be tracked to the posts two guys, called Gecko45 and
SPECOPS made on some boards on 2001.
Those post were lost but a guy recovered them from his cache and decided to publish them in his
web,, so this part of the history can be passed to future generations.

Be careful you could end up spitting your coffee all over your monitor while reading this...
I warned you.
