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!
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!”
Thanks to Lorene for this! She’s an amazing accountant in Ft. Myers! http://www.jbrooksai.com/
We here at Don’t Get Bit have always held the ideas that, sure we’re awesome, sure we are deadly and sure we give great advice. But underlying that is the idea that, FOR GOD SAKES WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOU GUYS F*CKING YOURSELVES UP!
The best chemistry experiments are those you can perform with items already laying around your house. With only some sugar, salt substitute and an instant cold pack, you can make your very own gunpowder! Being able to make homemade gunpowder without a trip to the store can be a lifesaver, no matter if it’s just for testing out a Civil War-era musket, blowing up stubborn tree stumps, or preparing for battle when imperialists overrun your country.
Materials You Need…
- Instant cold pack
- Salt substitute
- Glass jars
- Coffee filters
- Scale that can measure grams
- Stove or hotplate
In making saltpeter, we combined ammonium nitrate from the cold pack with potassium chloride from the salt substitute. Chemically, the equation looks like this:
NH4NO3 + KCl -> KNO3 + NH4Cl
Essentially, what we are doing is switching around the compound words in the chemicals. We are inducing the two chemicals to exchange ions so that ammonium nitrate and potassium chloride become potassium nitrate and ammonium chloride. The potassium nitrate crystalizes while the ammonium chloride remains a liquid.

Well it turns out that all of our Zombie Apocalypse “Prepper” shenanigans might be for naught. Turns out it might just be an asteroid that brings on the apocalypse. Specifically the disgusting and evil asteroid 2011 AG5.
If it follows the orbit scientists have plotted for it so far, there is a small, small chance that 2011 AG5 could hit Earth in February 2040.
Don’t quit your job and sell your house just yet. Astronomers, who have been tracking the asteroid since January 2011, say it is in an elliptical orbit that could bring it somewhere near Earth in 2040. Earth is about 8,000 miles in diameter; the asteroid appears to be about 450 feet across.
The problem is that having watched it for only about half an orbit around the Sun, the scientists cannot say for certain where it will be 28 years from now. So, for the moment, NASA’s Near Earth Object Program says the odds are about one in 625 that it could hit us in that still-distant future.
The odds of a frequent flier of dying in a plane crash are 500,000 to 1. If you’re frightened of flying, you should be terrified of this. Odds of bowling a 300 game: 11,500 to 1. Odds of injury from shaving: 6,585 to 1. Odds of getting away with murder: 2 to 1. Odds of getting hemorrhoids: 25 to 1. Odds of dating a supermodel: 88,000 to 1.
