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!
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.
Man who lived with girlfriend’s rotting corpse for up to six months!
A man who lived with his girlfriend’s rotting corpse for six months has been convicted of raping and murdering her. San Joaquin County jurors yesterday found Devon Epps guilty of murder, as well as murder by torture and rape. Epps, from Stockton, was arrested after an apartment manager found the badly decomposed body of 35-year-old Veronica Jones in a bathtub in December 2011. At the time, Jones had been missing for six months.
Jones, a mother-of-ten, was bludgeoned in the head with a metal table pedestal, raped with a foreign object and stabbed 32 times. Her body was stashed in the bathtub. According to authorities, her face had been beaten beyond recognition.
After his arrest, his apartment building manager said he was violent and disturbed. “The only thing they told me is that it’s not a crime to be missing, that they have a right not to talk to family or friends, and she was basically not missing,” Zuniga said, according to the station. Epps was eventually evicted from the apartment, and an apartment manager discovered Jones body. Epps was arrested and charged with murder two days later.
The evil is strong in this one…

SAN DIEGO (AP) – Move over vampires, goblins and haunted houses, this kind of Halloween terror aims to shake up even the toughest warriors: An untold number of so-called zombies are coming to a counter-terrorism summit attended by hundreds of Marines, Navy special ops, soldiers, police, firefighters and others to prepare them for their worst nightmares.
“This is a very real exercise, this is not some type of big costume party,” said Brad Barker, president of Halo Corp, a security firm hosting the Oct. 31 training demonstration during the summit at a 44-acre Paradise Point Resort island on a San Diego bay. “Everything that will be simulated at this event has already happened, it just hasn’t happened all at once on the same night. But the training is very real, it just happens to be the bad guys we’re having a little fun with.”
In the scenario, a VIP and his personal detail are trapped in a village, surrounded by zombies when a bomb explodes. The VIP is wounded and his team must move through the town while dodging bullets and shooting back at the invading zombies. At one point, some members of the team are bit by zombies and must be taken to a field medical facility for decontamination and treatment.
“No one knows what the zombies will do in our scenario, but quite frankly no one knows what a terrorist will do,” Barker said. “If a law enforcement officer sees a zombie and says, `Freeze, get your hands in the air!’ What’s the zombie going to do? He’s going to moan at you. If someone on PCP or some other psychotic drug is told that, the truth is he’s not going to react to you.”
OCTOBER 25–A New York City cop allegedly discussed plans to “kidnap, rape, torture, kill, cook and eat the body parts of a number of women,” according to a felony complaint unsealed today in U.S. District Court in Manhattan.
The officer, Gilberto Valle, 28, was arrested Wednesday by the FBI and is scheduled to appear today before a federal magistrate judge. Valle, a six-year NYPD veteran assigned to a Harlem precinct, exchanged e-mails and instant messages with two unnamed coconspirators about the bizarre plot, investigators allege.
The electronic communications were recently discovered by FBI agents during a court-authorized search of Valle’s computer. That review also revealed that Valle had “created files pertaining to at least 100 women and containing at least one photograph of each woman.”
The complaint alleges that Valle illegally used federal and state law enforcement databases to “locate potential victims,” and that he had been spying on some of these women at their homes and places of employment. He also allegedly drafted an “operation plan” to abduct and cook one woman, and researched “methods of disabling and drugging women.”
In one July communication, Valle wrote that he was contemplating tying one “tasty” woman “onto some kind of apparatus…cook her over a low heat, keep her alive as long as possible.” When asked about the size of his oven, Valle replied, “Big enough to fit one of these girls if I folded their legs.”
Slingshots like these have been made by rebels starved of resources as their conflict with pro-government forces continues.
Improvisation in the Zombie Apocalypse will be your best survival technique. Adapting to the innumerably different situations you will undoubtedly face will probably be the difference between life and death. Use your brains or eat them. That’s why we are awarding the Syrian Rebels the Improvised Zombie Apocalypse Weapon of the week!
Syrian rebels have turned to making their own improvised weapons as they continue to fight more heavily armed forces loyal to the country’s embattled president, Bashar al-Assad.
A portable rocket-launcher, a hand-grenade and various explosives are among the home-made arms which have been developed by the rebels, who have even resorted to using a PlayStation games console controller to fire mortar rounds.
Lacking in ammunition and anti-aircraft weaponry, they have produced the makeshift arsenal from all the materials they can muster.

A good friend of the DGB crew attended the ZombieCon Aliens vs. Zombies in Ft. Myers FL last night. Here is her report and a photo gallery below the fold.
“It was early on the evening on Saturday, October 21, 2012 when the invasion began! Little did the residents of Fort Myers, Florida know what they were in for! Just as the sun was starting to descend on the river, and the glow of the rays illuminated the peaceful scene, THEY started to arrive. At first you didn’t really notice them, but as the sun sank lower you realized it was a full force invasion. But not just any invasion, we were getting hit on two fronts! Both Zombies and Aliens were descending our quiet little city and it was anyone’s guess who would survive the night. It was obvious the Zombies had the stronger forces. The Aliens were just too outnumbered. As you forced you way through the crowded streets and visited the various shops and vendors or tried just to blend into the crowds at one of the four different band stands, you realized that the humans and aliens were no match for Zombies. The undead were attacking innocent humans and Aliens without discrimination. Next thing you knew, the Aliens were turned into the living dead and were joining the ranks of their creators. It was a crazed madness! It was estimated that their combined forces were around 20,000 and it is unknown if there were any survivors. Again, it is proven, that no one is a match against the Living Dead! But we few survivors will not give up the fight! Good Luck and Be Safe!”

Agnes Apio has to tie up her son Francis before she can leave the house. In his state, he is a danger to himself. Where once he walked and talked like a normal child, now he is only able to drag himself along in the dirt. Francis is suffering from “Nodding Disease,” a brain disorder that, according to CNN, afflicts at least 3,000 children in northern Uganda, leaving them physically stunted and severely mentally disabled.
“I feel dark in my heart,” Apio says as waves flies away from her son’s face and mops up his urine after a seizure, “This boy has become nothing.”
“Reportedly the children gnaw at their fabric restraints, like a rabid animals,” says The Daily Tech. The article calls them “zombie children,” having “no cure” and “no future.”
First the victims become restless, can’t concentrate. They say they have trouble thinking. Then comes the nodding, an uncontrollable dipping of the head that presages the disease’s debilitating epilepsy-like seizures. It is this nodding motion that gives the illness its name.
Nodding Disease first attacks the nervous system, then the brain. As the epilepsy-like seizures progress and worsen, the children become less and less like themselves, and more and more distant and blank. Eventually the brain stops developing and the victims’ bodies stop growing. So far, no patients have recovered.
