As with the Zombie Apocalypse itself, the question has always been more “when” than “if” a major ammunition company would introduce a line of zombie-specific ammo. Today that question was answered with the announcement of Hornady’s new Zombie Max ammunition and Proven Z-Max bullets. The announcement didn’t come in the form of some boring old press release, though. Check out the video sent by Hornady’s marketing department at lunchtime today (GRAPHIC IMAGE WARNING):
So, yeah, lots to discuss there. Here are a few talking points that rush to mind: [ Read Full Post ]

Waves of violence and looting have been roaring across London and nearby British cities since Saturday, as authorities struggle to contain the country's worst unrest since race riots had London in flames in the 1980s.

What began as a few random fires and incidents of vandalism on the evening of June 15, soon became utter chaos, with looters stealing from local stores and police trying to clear the streets. Windows were smashed, fires were lit, police cars were flipped and more than a hundred people needed to visit the hospital. Downtown Vancouver was in a state of anarchy.

The sun coughed up a significant and fiery blast last week. The Class “M” solar flare erupted Tuesday, June 7, and NASA says it will give our planet just a "glancing blow." The National Weather Service is expecting only minor disruptions to satellites and power grids.

The largest flare on record to hit Earth occurred in 1859. It created auroras worldwide and interrupted telegraph service for weeks. Considering today's technology-dependent societies, a major solar storm could plunge the modern world into some serious trouble. [ Read Full Post ]
In 2010, British Army Lance Corporal Luke Reeson was shot in the face by the Taliban in the Helmand Province of Afghanistan. The bullet ricocheted off his body armor, smashing into his lower cheek and back out through his mouth. Instead of going into shock, or giving in to panic, Corporal Reeson spat out the bullet and walked two miles to get help.
While most of you will likely never be in the position that Reeson found himself, the question is worth asking: If, god forbid, you are ever shot, what should you do to survive? [ Read Full Post ]
