Sounds like good idea?
So it begins?
We’re back from our retired missile silo. Chatterbox turned the internet back on and looks like the world needs us. Who’s with me!? We’ve trained. We’ve learned. We’ve practiced and we’re ready for action. Who wants on the team?
Hello? Anyone out there still? With everything going on out there in the world it sure seems like Don’t Get Bit should be running again. If ever this was needed, now would be the time. Who’s down?
Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest opens an emergency triage to care for the increased number of people with flu-like symptoms. “If we can remove them from the main ED and put them in environment where everyone is masked and everyone can be protected, it’s safer for them and certainly safer for the staff,” said Terry Burger, hospital director of infection control.

All of us at DGB have always said that the ultimate weapons in the Zombie Apocalypse are wielded ones. Hammers, maces, bats, katanas with shovels attached (Katovels) and cricket bats with ice-skates attached (Crikates) have always been our weapons of choice due to their dispose-ability, find-ability, fix-ability and not needing a lot of skill to use in a deadly way, or in the case of Zombies, a re-deadlier way.
So it’s no surprise that according to the FBI annual crime statistics, the number of murders committed annually (pre-zedocalypse) with hammers and clubs outnumbers murders committed with a rifle.
Think about it… In 2005, the number of murders committed with a rifle was 445, while the number of murders committed with hammers and clubs was 605. In 2006, the number of murders committed with a rifle was 438, while the number of murders committed with hammers and clubs was 618. In 2011, there was 323 murders committed with a rifle but 496 murders committed with hammers and clubs. (Why the sudden drop?)
And so the list goes, with the actual numbers changing somewhat from year to year, yet the fact that more people are killed with blunt objects each year remains constant. Another interesting fact: According to the FBI, nearly twice as many people are killed by hands and fists each year than are killed by murderers who use rifles.
So they can try and take our guns but they’ll never take our ball-peens! Keep swinging everyone and save those bullets for Lord Humongous!
An over-the-top instructional video has been released from a Homeland Security department on what to do if you are caught up in a mass shooting or the begining of the Zombie Apocalypse.
The six-minute tape, complete with pulsating soundtrack and blood spatter, advises that the best way to survive is follow three steps – run, hide or as a last resort, fight. Which is what we always promote here at DGB. Anyone who wades into a horde of zombies is going to be a zombie. So running and hiding doesn’t make you a coward.
The clip was produced by the Houston Police Department in Alabama and published on November 5 by the state’s Homeland Security department. It depicts the nightmare which unfolds as a sole gunman stalks employees in an office building.
VIDEO IS BELOW THE FOLD… In a bid to warn against the dangers of ‘bath salts’, the U.S. Navy has launched a bizarre PSA featuring a sailor who suffers violent hallucinations in which his girlfriend and roommate turn into demons and he is eventually sectioned.
The shocking new public service announcement, entitled ‘Bath salts: It’s not a fad… it’s a nightmare’, starts with the viewer in the shoes of a young sailor who snorts bath salts he has received in the mail.
A short time later he vomits before he meets his girlfriend at a bowling alley. At this stage the hallucinations kick in and the sailor is first freaked out by bowling lanes, before his girlfriend suddenly appears demonic and he hits her before running away.
When the sailor returns to his apartment his roommate asks him if he is alright, but in the mind of the drugged sailor he turns into a demon.
The next time we see the sailor he is restrained and is being carried into hospital. The sailor then groans in agony as medical professionals attempt to treat him and he is eventually sedated.
The video also features Lt. George Loeffler, a Psychiatry Resident at the Naval Medical Center in San Diego, who describes the dangers of using the drugs. ‘When people are using bath salts, they’re not their normal selves,’ he says.
‘They’re angrier. They’re erratic. They’re violent and they’re unpredictable…. People will start seeing things that aren’t there, believing things that aren’t true.’
According to Loeffler the most disturbing thing about using ‘bath salts’ is that the paranoia can last days or even weeks after the drugs have left the user’s system.
