Cool Gear Ideas

I want to start with a cool idea I saw in a bushcraft magazine years ago, called the "Alpha Tent". An idea brought to us by this guy- http://www.alpharubicon.com/prepinfo/ponchotent.htm It's basically just a set of poles, fiberglass or aluminum, that you rig into your poncho to make a very quick, low profile shelter. You start with a pair of poles from a worn out or damaged dome tent, trim the sections untill you reach an over all length of 111". If the stem at the ends of the poles are too small to stay in the grommets of your poncho, you can build them up easily, this is where I differ some from the original idea. Get four red wire nuts(the ones with the wings work best) and drill a hole in the top of the wire nut just a hair smaller than the stem, drift out the metal threaded portion on the inside of the wire nut, and slide it on the end of the pole. Put the poles in each corner and move the crossing point to the center of your poncho in the hood opening, then lash the cross together. Image Image Image Two people can snap in another poncho as a floor, or snap two alpha tents together for a pretty solid shelter that gives way more room than the traditional poncho pup tent. You can also rig one up like a regular lean too with much more room and better weather coverage. Image I figure someone might get some use out of this, since we all carry a poncho anyway(or should) and it's just too good to keep to myself.

Bug out bag’s looks?

Writing about antibiotics and mentioning the bug out bag made me wonder what a "good" bug out bag looks like? Should it have a bunch of pockets? A lot of straps? I think it should haev a front release in case a zombie grabs it from behind. Would something like this be too much or too little? Image

Looting pawn shops

Has anyone thought about this yet? They carry things like weapons and other goods and probably wouldn't be the first place to be looted during an outbreak. Image

Zombies being part of everyday life?

What if in the distant future a zombie outbreak was resolved and the remaining zombies were put to work or kept in secure places as pets? Kinda like at the end of Shaun of the Dead. Would laws label them as slaves/animals? Do they still retain their international human rights? Would people grow prejudice over them? And what jobs would they do? Test subjects for products?
