    Irishguy to shotgun

    good post. i think they (as in the writers) are doing something like the following

    1. the information is there (the pimple kid with the knife is worried) except its only on the ‘crazy’ websites. so it looks like the media/govt knows whats going on and is trying to quell it before it goes wildfire on them. this is shown quite well with the increase in sirens as the show progresses and the ‘leaked’ video which had to have come from the police (ariel and bodycam shot). so the police know something is wrong and it is not being contained and the leaks are warnings but people dont see it..yet.

    2. people are suffering from ‘normalcy bias’ so they dont see the drop in down and outs, the missing people increases, the drop in drug users, the kid drop off in school...its the ‘flu’. so basically i think all the darker places in any city for walkers are containing them, they are feeding on the impoverished..now but when that food source dries up, they will burst out into the open. the death of the drug deal is the dam breaking, they are about to explode into the normal life of a city.

    3. personally i think the kids at home are kept there due to the flu or their parents having the flu or fear of it. i suspect there will be an explosion of walkers as they are currently locked in their houses and cant get out. also it is showing that the family we are watching is not fully aware ‘that something is wrong’ but perhaps some families are and are preparing as best they can.

    4. their is also the ‘boiled frog’ analogy here. the pimple kid is the only one who ‘sees’ it. he is smart, we are told that, so he is fully conscious that ‘something is really badly wrong’. that what the frowny face on the bus was about IMHO. he is saying in that look to the teacher ‘do you see now’ and the wave is a acknowledgement that yes, something is not right but that leads her again to normalcy bias..its just a flu, maybe even a bad one but just a flu oh and my relationship issue, my son the druggie and she looses awareness of her surroundings again. her crash to reality was the running over of the drug dealer...now the veil of illusion has been lifted. the implication i guess is all over the city, the number of walkers has reached (as mentioned above) a critical mass point and they are now visible, even if you dont want to see them.

    5. like all cities there is horrible places normal people dont go. the drug den of course will be empty, those bitten have turned and ‘walked off’ again seeking easy prey, nearby drug dens, down and outs, tent city places. that is why she saw one stumbling guy in the tent area in the park filled with fliers of the missing and just assumes it some drunk hobo.

    6. the other thing is the reaction of the police, they are obviously stretched to the limit, the numbers needed for one walker and the wide berth they gave him while the EMT guy worked on recovery and it also looks the same in the hospitals, we see that in the security cameras with the doctors moving fast and the nurse saying when the drug guy walked out, its no longer her problem, call the police and runs off.

    7. we are in the strange twilight all epidemics experience. there is a quiet period before it explodes. there is a term for it if a recall just can remember.

    8. the 5 states breakout implies its not a rel flu, its somehow controlled was it a terrorist release or a strange govt run test gone bad? why is it only currently in the 5 states, that looks like a release. The US does not create flu viruses that ‘gift’ is always (or nearly always) Asia as the breeding ground where close proximity of pigs, birds and humans interact. the spanish flu is one exception (but again it was pigs, birds and humans in close proximity during the first world war). so there is no report of worldwide flu issues yet their is a flu virus so maybe its just we have not been told yet. i also recall in TWD they mentioned a worldwide virus.

    9. anyone who talks about people eating anyone is recommendted for mental review. so there is a possibility people have seen walkers in action but like the drug daler kid are sent for ‘assessment’. that again would hide the truth.

    finally after a long rant, i read on hotair from a poster that there is 1500 (i think it was that) deaths per day in LA on a normal day. so from now on, even without walkers eating and creating more, 1500 walkers are created every 24 hours (and thats not counting the other states). there is a mathematical exponential equation in here somewhere.

    just my opinion and that of my good wife...

    that has happened , there is loads of pastebin lists already on full display and some of the rougher websites have taken the lists and directly posted on AM users facebook, linkedin, twitter etc stating who was cheating and using those sites to contact partners. its going to be a bloodbath out there.

    despite the salacious nature, my interest in this is the security aspect, part of my job is linked a little to technology security. it really looks like AM did very little to secure their data. what companies need to see is this leak has destroyed that company, they are toast and the legal aspects have not even started yet. wait till the ‘i was divorced and lost everything but was not a member because someone used my email and i want 100 million’ cases start. there was one post on reddit about a saudia arabian national who is gay and who was begging to get his name removed since he risks a beheading.

    most companies dont realise that the vast majority of leaks lead to financial disaster (cant remember the actual % but it in the 70-80% range from memory). they think because they are not in this market (i.e the Ashley M market) they are somehow different. that is not the way hacking groups work, they want easy targets with even a vague link to something they are blaming for the worlds ills. they also use your hacked password as they know most people use the same pwds again and again.

    what is also amazing is the number of people using work emails as their contact, which in a lot of companies will be a fire-able offense (you need to check your employers contract).

    this is before the stored pictures and emails of the members even appear not to mention their credit card details.

    this is a 37 million person disaster that is going to keep on giving. the data is now out on the web. there is no way to recover it or hide it or wish it away. so for example once the data is fully searchable (and it will be soon), a future employer/spouse/partner will see it pop up on searches... your email id, your name, your address, the pictures you sent to a contact, the people you contacted, the emails you wrote...everything....

    honestly within a week or so, the first suicides/murders will appear related to this. does that sound like i am exaggerating...?? sure it does, but i am not, watch and remember...this has only just started...

    yep,nervously puts our hands up, my wife and myself,...we are totally addicted to this...

    one benefit of watching it back to back is the changes in Rick, from the start with the petrol can at the gas station with the little Z girl and his almost child like innocence to the farm to the prison and season 5 and the immortal lines with the terminus guys and the red handled machete...’didnt want to waste bullets’...scary and stunning ..it truly is an amazing series. what i truly love is how in season 1 the Z are horrific, but by the prison, they are treated like background noise. sometimes watching it you get that feeling of tenseness and you realise as Rick is talking, over his shoulder is a Z on the fence...this permanent unease is something they have truly mastered. they did it in season 5 with the spray painting of the wolves everywhere...this constant all pervasive background stress... sometimes when watching it i say to my missus laughing, why the frack are we watching this, i just feel uneasy all the time..LOL whats worse is when you dont feel uneasy you know, just know, its building to kick your ass later. so even the lighter moments are warning of impending doom.

    just hope the fear season will suffice until october...i sure hope they dont screw this up, honestly i cant remember the actors name, the male lead, i dont rate him very highly, the lady is a great actress...just hoping it all works...also i will be very upset if they dont have at least one episode dealing with the US military response...thats a set piece they could do well. if i dont see an a10 warthog ripping Z’s apart i will be very very upset! ;)

    i seem to recall they were digging up people buried in permafrost who died from the plague for that reason, to get an active copy of the disease to provide a cure on the off chance it reappears...

    also they have found people who were immune to it and , so the story goes, their offspring today are actually immune to aids also. saw an interview with a guy who lived through the aids rise in San Fran. everyone he knew died of aids...everyone. turned out his ancestors were from a village in England somewhere that the plague just didnt infect/effect.

    kind of amazing when you think of it.

    i am always reminded of that video of the famous communist guy who ran to the west, i think it was the 1980’s. he did a whole series of videos on how the communists planned to deconstruct the west, from movies degrading the military, to degrading the family, religion, teachers, universities etc.

    the goal of all of this was to encourage the rise of a central authority that would ‘sort it out’, just not the way you thought of course.

    one of his comments was the 25 year plan they had to break down law and order by convincing people that all the police were corrupt and should not be trusted. he believed, if i recall, that this was a key step.

    just sayin, i find that very interesting....in light of current events

    change where a teacher gets paid from.

    if a teacher is answerable to parents and the school they are in because the ultimately understand that is where they get paid from, things will change dramatically and quickly. it will be about student progression (not progressive), student mental stimulation and building confidence and it will start to focus on what a student needs for life.

    will it kill off the arts, no, but it will ensure that people who want to do the arts pay for it and are driven by an interest in it rather than just getting people who want degrees because someone else is paying.

    a teacher who realises their pay and pay rises is directly related to the success of their students will become a driver of change but not change for changes sake but for improvements.

    of course the fear is that our little johnny may not be allowed to become a nuclear scientist the parents want him to be. here is the thing every kid on this planet has a natural skill, that skill maybe nuclear physics or maybe dancing or plumbing. it will also force parents to set targets with a level ore realism. if you believe the teacher is wrong, goto another school, if enough parents think the teacher is wrong, fire the teacher and get another. this is not rocket surgery....

    from what i read, the drone delivery would be an option for people close to one of their distribution centres. it looks like you would have, for example, 3 options, normal post, fedex or drone. you could pick with drone as the fastest and most expensive. they were looking at a time delivery, which honestly i cant remember but its short. so i guess the example is if you wanted the lens for a kids parts now, you pick drone and get it in a few hours. also going on amazons normal delivery rules, if it doesnt deliver they take the cost or if its damaged you return it.

    i totally agree on the regulation issue, this is going to happen one way or another. i am also not sure it will do flyovers so you can expect them to follow rivers, roads etc rather than buzz your neighbours. this also means if they fail it will crash at the side of a road or a river rather than into someones living room.at least thats my understanding from what i read.

    if we were to do the maths on this:

    32,000 emails at 5 minutes (on average)= 160,000 minutes

    surely she would have to scan the official emails as well so 30,000 * (lets say 3 minutes) = 90,000 minutes

    so 250,000 minutes approx to read them all. thats 4,167 hours in total. if we divide that by 8 (working day) we get 520 person days of effort. Also it is humanly impossible to concentrate for 8 hours non stop on something as boring as email. if software was used (which i suspect it was, can we see what was used?)

    my questions:
    what date did the request for emails first appear (aka the start date for review)?
    when did this review actually start (create a team with guidelines)?
    how many people were involved in the review (I dont think it is possible to review all by one person)?
    who are these people?
    if you used software, where is it and what was it?
    if you used software what did it do with emails to say her husband AND the state dept (i.e. delete emails sent to the following emails?)
    what error percentage is acceptable for mistakes (if done by hand), because with human intervention of 520 elapsed days, it is not possible to have the error % at zero.
    where re the backups just in case an error was made?

    would appreciate if people better at the calculations could re run that and see did i make any gross mistakes.

    look that maybe how libs meet their ‘life partners’ but i can assure you all zombies dont care about ‘50 shades of gray’ handcuffs and stun guns. no here is what you need, pistols and lots of ammo, shotguns and lots of ammo, mid range rifle (ar,ak) and lots of ammo, and long range 3.06 or 3.08 and lots of ammo IMHO. a group who know their weapons and know survival techniques. also emphasis for lots of ammo, and food and clean water. for super close range get your katana, blade weapons, spears and a good crossbow for quiet work. emphasis on lots of ammo. the films or rather i should say to us zombie heads call them, the DOCUMENTARIES, tell you all you need to know...and i quote loosely from the 2004 remake of the dawn of the dead documentary..i have 20 of these pussy 9mm rounds and 17 of the glorious .357 rounds. personally i think anything is better that nothing

    Stock up on supplies
    yes always a good idea

    Wait for the government to find a cure
    BAWHAHAHHAHA er, no, but good luck with that. they are dead...no cure for that. its a virus, no cure for that...go ask the common cold how the govt is getting on with that, what obamacare will sort it out. hahahahahaha

    Buy a protective suit
    okayyyyy, just make sure its interwoven with kevlar or bite proof threads

    Isolate your family somewhere safe
    yes because libs who have lived in a city where their idea of a nightmare is lining up for double decaf frappichino will know what to do in the countryside. i would guess they last 1 to 2 nights tops and my best guess is they die of exposure and reanimate causing more issues. do people have any fricken idea how difficult it is to survive outdoors for any period of time. also if 300 million people move to the countrside, it wont be sparse for long and its like creating a huge snack and buffet table for zombies, dragging them out of the cities.

    and spare me the guns are loud excuse. if you have to use weapons you are in the crapper anyways you need to blow a hole to escape. leading me to the vehicles you need...but thats another thread....

    ‘Military force is a rational and often necessary response to the wanton slaughters of children, mass kidnappings of schoolgirls, and beheading of innocents. ‘

    so where was the military response
    wanton slaughters...nope
    mass kidnappings....nope
    beheading...........and no.

    as for the jobs part, the big gaping wound in the argument is the guy doing the beheading is from London, an ex rapper. this is a guy who had everything liberals love showered on him, free health, free school, free housing...free everything...and YET, he is slicing heads off in Iraq. same for the german guy sitting at the ISIS top table. how about the hundreds from Denmark (were they deprived with the huge social nets in place, how about the Swedish jihad mob, the Dutch ones, the French ones? were they deprived, yes or no? i could keep going on and on listing countries that pride themselves on their social services and frequently look down their nose at other countries not offering exactly the same.

    IMHO the administration needs to listen to, of all things, Batman, ‘some people just want to see the world burn...’ for those people the only answer is force...

    if it wasnt so sad, it would be hilarious. before you laugh, just remember, your taxes will go to pay for these unemployed.

    a part of me used to say about changes liberals wanted and the unintended (sometimes intended) consequences, they will see it ...now, no NOW...how about NOW? as i got older i realised, they will never see it. as a Polish friend who lived through the glories of socialist Poland (/s), said, there are 2 types of liberals/socialists, the believers and those who understand it. the people who understand it are those in charge, they realise how much money they can earn telling the believers they are making a difference.

    i bet you right now, in that bookstore, the patchouli oil wearing latte sipping believers are there bemoaning how capitalism has failed their bookstore and how if they had socialism they would not need to earn a profit and therefore the store would be open. they believe it, lock , stock and 2 barrels. the reason the bookstore is failing is because of those mouth breathers in the republican/tea/conservative etc etc parties. so you see its YOUR fault as a reader here, you closed that store. they care about the workers, you, you horrible racist, sexist homophobe with your guns and Bibles...its your fault. you have debauched their good star trek like intentions with horrible capitalist things like, profit and something called loss.

    They simply dont see that the guy running amazon LOVES this law, loves it because it lays waste to all small competition before them clearing the field of niche players driving them to where...amazon. the cost on him of this change is minute in comparison. its why big liberal companies love big government the have orgasms over laws like this. politicians love it because Jeff Bezos in amazon will fill their purses with support while the morons in the bookstore, well...suck it up you nerds, its for the greater good.

    here is the kicker, the only way a liberal changes is when they have a truly personal WTF moment. you cant tell them that they have to experience it. IMHO, that happens when for no reason the result of their actions hit them square in the face. i would say if there were 20 workers in that store, we will be lucky if one will see the reality, and then trying to see that reality in the toxic soup of 19 others who have decided they simply didnt believe enough and they need to march instead. sorry to be so depressing, but they simply wont see it they way you and i do...

    speaking as someone living here, irish police, aka Gardai, are unarmed. chances are he would very little or no experience with firearms. also, i dont know what part of ireland he is from but if i am in a city here and meet ‘some guy’ who says he knows where to get a late night drink (bars close at 11.30ish here), you dont head off with him.
