Our Dumb Century

Buy this book, it is amazing from start to finish, especially if you know a bit of 20th century history (or know someone who does). The Onion upped their game for this book.

This image is one of the pages.

u/Weedwacker · 141 pointsr/OutOfTheLoop

Vice President Joe Biden has a reputation for speaking his mind. He's had so many gaffes in office (just google: joe biden gaffe) and there's been more than a few times he's just straight up cursed in front of the media, which is unusual for a politician nowadays. People actually love him for this because it makes him seem like a more down to earth real guy who somehow ended up vice president.

The Onion capitalized on this image of him by fictionalizing him as an old guy always getting into young-guy movie-type comedic situations and doing unexpected wild things. Believe it or not it's been a successful parody for The Onion and they have lots of these stories. Joe Biden and the White House administration have also reacted well to the parody but insist that's not his real personality.

This one has always been one of my favorites.

The parodies were successful enough that The Onion released a "autobiography" of their 'Diamond' Joe Biden character. "He" has also done an AMA on reddit.

Conservatives don't really have much sense of humour. Perusing though my local bookstore selection only reveals scant titles with even a conservative bent, and even then the joke tends to just be "look at this strawman, isn't this ridiculous!" like the Social Justice Warriors handbook or my personal favorite Reasons to vote for democrats which is just an empty book similar to a journal, and that's almost like a joke right -the democrats have no plans, see? But then you realise that someone sold an empty book at full price and the joke is you just wasted your time and money.

So...a $22 junior-sized machete, a $10 book, a pocket-sized first aid kit, thirty feet of duct tape, a no-name flashlight, and a can of SPAM? And you only have to pay one hundred American dollars (plus $16.59 for ground shipping) for the pleasure of getting it all in a wooden crate? Sign me up!!!

u/quixoticacid · 28 pointsr/Damnthatsinteresting

Yep yep. Max Brooks. Also the author of The Zombie Survival Guide
World War Z (the book) is far better, but the survival guide was how I was introduced to it all.

u/slavik262 · 28 pointsr/guns

Eh. It's this one. It's decent, but the firearms section is really stupid. An excerpt:

> The U.S. Army M16A1 is considered by many to be the worst assault rifle ever invented. Its overcomplicated mechanism is both difficult to clean and prone to jamming. Adjusting the sight, something that must be done every time the target shifts its range [pfft], requires the use of a nail ballpoint pen, or similar device. What if you don't have one, or lost it as several dozen zombies shambled steadily toward you? The delicate plastic stock of the M16A1 obviates bayonet use, and by attempting to use it as such you would risk shattering the hollow, spring-loaded stock... So poor was its early battle record that during the Vietnam War, communist guerrillas refused to take them from dead Americans [right...]. The newer M16A2, although somewhat of an improvement, is still regarded as a second-class weapon. If given the choice, emulate the Vietcong and ignore the M16 entirely.

> On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Soviet AK-47 is considered the best assault rifle ever made...


It only goes downhill from there. Other fun bits include calling an M1 Garand the best semi-auto you can get and saying bolt-actions can be more effective than semi designs because they "[force] the user to make each round count".

u/daprice82 · 27 pointsr/OldSchoolCool

The Onion actually released an e-book like this called The President of Vice. It's an "autobiography" by Joe Biden that he's writing to pay off some gambling debts. It's only 106 pages but it's freakin' hilarious:

Also, [Why Not Me?: The Inside Story of the Making and Unmaking of the Franken Presidency] ( is an amazing book. It's written like an epistolary novel: fake campaign bios, news reports, diary entries, Bob Woodward exposes, transcripts. It's an incredibly well done and funny book. Definitely check out the Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot Book and Lying Liars is brilliant is well. While you're at it check out some videos on YouTube of him as the comedian for a couple of Correspondents Dinners during Bill Clinton's presidency.

u/Goldenfox89 · 24 pointsr/StarWars

IIRC, there was a threat a while back about it being Star Wars written in Shakespearean iambic pentameter.

Edit: found it on Amazon, here.

u/TheHYPO · 20 pointsr/LateShow

This title and thread was so confusing to me.

He announced the book on purpose. The book is a collection of Trump quotes compiled by the Late Show staff, leading to the book being billed as "by Donald J. Trump (by accident)":

Some of my own favourites: "an unkindness of ravens" and "a parliament of owls"

If you're way into this kind of thing, James Lipton (of Actor's Studio fame) wrote a whole book of them, An Exaltation of Larks.

u/hells_cowbells · 11 pointsr/todayilearned

According to the fine publication of The Onion titled Our Dumb Century, it is indeed much older than that. This fine newspaper is descended from a newspaper titled The Mercantile-Onion, founded in 1765. It took on its current form in 1896, when T. Herman Zweibel took over, and renamed it The Onion. He would remain publisher until his court-ordered retirement in 1958.

It's actually an unkindness of ravens. You can have a parliament of owls.

In case you are looking for more. Or just want to know why I know this.

u/SplinterClaw · 9 pointsr/AskReddit

Acutally yes I do know how tiring a real sword fight is. I've been in re-enacted battles in a full harness of plate and mail with padded gambeson and then two layers of woolen clothes.

I can fight pretty well in that situation for a reasonable amount of time. Given that in the proposed scenario I would not be in full plate I should be okay. The whole point about having a melee weapon and using it correctly is that you keep the fucker as far away from you as possible.

This leads me to my defensive armament my mail shirt. Recommended in the very Zombie Survival Guide you appear to be drawing your research from.

You are correct, sprung steel is not as good as tempered steel, for that I'd have to go get this, but as it's in the cupboard and would take longer to get than the 3s the OP mentioned I discounted it.

Dull blades kill just as quickly as sharp ones.

In short sir, I do not speak bullshit, I will not purchase a firearm and if desired could use a fucking mace if I wanted to

I haven't seen the movie, and I'm not much of a book reader, but I do love all things zombies and of all the zombies things I've seen or read I loved World War Z the book.

It's a very easy, light read. But in my opinion it's the best, more realistic and rational zombie book. Hell, it was written by the guy who wrote the Zombie Survival Guide.

Does anyone remember Franken's book "Why Not Me?" The premise of the book is a hypothetical scenario wherein Franken is elected president and the results are comical and disastrous.

If I recall, this book was pretty good. Not as good as "Rush Limbaugh Is a Big, Fat Idiot", but okay.

If you're interested, James Lipton (yes, the same James Lipton) wrote a book called "An Exaltation of Larks" that researched all the terms of venery and created some new ones.

Rush Limbaugh Is a Big Fat Idiot: And Other Observations

u/docb30tn · 7 pointsr/preppers

Fierce_Fox is right. FM manuals such as FM-217-76 Survival.....may be somewhat outdated but the information is reliable.
As a Medic/EMT my prepping focuses on my skill set with everything else falling close in line. I have a lot of information in digital format; both on USB and a small external drive. I have a small tablet that is in my BoB for reading documents and such.
At a minimum, here are my suggestions:
FM 21-76 Survival - Department of the Army
SAS Survival Guide -
The Pocket Prepper's Guide - Bernie Car
The Complete Disaster Home Preparation Guide - Robert Roskind
How To Survive the End of the World As We Know It-James Wesley,Rawles
Bug Out - Scott B. Williams
When There Is No Doctor - Gerard S. Doyle, MD -
The Ultimate Survival Medicine Guide - Joseph Alton, MD & Amy Alton, ARNP -
Last, but not least, The Zombie Survival Guide - Max Brooks
The last one is more humor but it does have many great points and ideas.
A library that covered everything would be very heavy and take up a bit of space. For the minimum, at least 1-2 books on everything one will need to survive will still be a lot. These books should be read, reread, and read again. We can't memorize everything, but having this to go back on when needed is a great addition. There's tons of information online and downloadable for free.
Depending on one's skill set, then they may not need as much. Teach others in a group is a must. Can't have one person be the ONLY one who can do 'this' skill. IMO, research should always be the first step. So much information out there and it's free.

u/treetree888 · 7 pointsr/

Settle in, hunt, gather, and prepare a defensible structure for the warmer months when the zombies will thaw out and come to attack you again. Preferably one big enough to allow some farming in the warmer periods. Of course, this means no timely return to a normal life as we know it, which is a bummer.
The last few chapters of the ZSG cover exactly this :)

u/MikkelPaulson · 6 pointsr/canada

An excellent question. In a word: fairly. As a creator myself (I work as a web developer) I find it insulting to say, as some do, that artists wouldn't create art without a significant financial incentive. No, money enables artists to devote themselves to the medium that they enjoy and thus contribute more to our culture, but no real artist makes art just because they want to get rich.

The Pirate Party is not copyright abolitionist. We recognize the benefit of copyright, but we don't see it as an end in itself. From the (flawed) financial standpoint, creating one wildly popular work and receiving royalties for the rest of your life (+50 years) leaves you with no further need to contribute further. Instead, we'd like to see a relaxed 10-year copyright term. Why? When was the last time you bought a brand new game over 10 years old? What about a movie? Or an album? Most of the revenue from a creative work is generated in the first 10 years, hell in the first year. Losing the rest of the life + 40 isn't going to have a significantly negative impact on revenue, but it will have an incredible impact on our culture.

Imagine having unlimited, legal access to everything created before 2001. What would you do with it? Maybe make a zombie remix? How about whatever you wanted? How much faster could we evolve as a society and a culture if our artists had the ability to remix and build on other artistic work within a decade? If hip-hop artists could sample freely, would they not be better able to practice their art?

I agree that shorter, less strict copyright terms would have a detrimental effect on the present big business of art. What I don't think is that a change to this business would be detrimental to artists, to Canadian culture, or to consumers. We're watching the creative economy evolving all around us, and it's not easy to predict where it will take us. However, music and art have been around for tens of thousands of years before the invention of copyright and the record label, and they'll be around for tens of thousands of years after the misguided notion of “intellectual property” has been all but forgotten.

Thanks for the question.

Is this William Shakespeare's Star Wars? You didn't specify but you said

There's a difference between open source and an editing free-for-all. Good, large open source projects have maintainers and approvers. Open source doesn't mean everyone gets to fuck with it willy nilly by the minute. It means if someone doesn't like the main version, they can copy it and make their own from it.

You could of course do exactly this -- and of course, some have -- with any book older than 90 years or so.

For humor, check out Why Not Me? by Al Franken. He predicts the choice of Joe Lieberman as a running mate prior to the 2000 election.

I found the Zombie Survival Guide to be an interesting one to go to..
Yes it’s about zombies, but take out the zombie aspect and it seems to be a decent book still.
Least the zombie idea makes it interesting more then just survival imo

Altho, it’s the only survival book I’ve read, so I don’t have any comparison

In fact.. I just stumbled in here..
and this is my first post in Reddit!

Here’s a link to see..

  • Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks. A great read that will forever fuel zombie conversations in the future.
  • World War Z by Max Brooks. A well done recount of the zombie war that nearly wiped humans off the planet.
  • Day By Day Armageddon by J. L. Bourne. A compelling diary-style account from the beginning of a zombie apocalypse.
  • Beyond Exile by J. L. Bourne. A sequel that picks up right where Day By Day left off.
  • The Zombie Combat Manual by Roger Ma. Meh. Just a cash-in on Max Brooks' great work with the survival guide.

There's always TONS of tat produced whenever there's a US election- lots of dolls, masks, bobbleheads, all kinds of weird novelty gifts intended to be comedic. I remember years ago when Howard Dean was running for election and became notorious because of that 'scream' he made, someone ended up producing a Howard Dean Screaming Action Figure which reproduced that weird noise of elation of his when you pushed a button. I guess all this stuff is targeted at the people who fall into that overlap between politics junkies & people who find silly novelty items amusing. There's lots of weird Trump junk out there, too. I mean, look at this shit:

The Trump Talking Toilet Roll Holder!

The Donald Trump Colouring Book! I actually kind of want this, even if the way Trump is drawn inside is kind of odd. I'd LOVE for someone to produce a Trump/Pepe meme colouring book, that'd make my year.

Other freaks try to cash in with their own hand-made Ebay-shilled junk, like... whatever the fuck this crocheted Trump penis thing is supposed to be.

Here's the book he wrote about it:

> An "exaltation of larks"? Yes! And a "leap of leopards," a "parliament of owls," an "ostentation of peacocks," a "smack of jellyfish," and a "murder of crows"! For those who have ever wondered if the familiar "pride of lions" and "gaggle of geese" were only the tip of a linguistic iceberg, James Lipton has provided the definitive answer: here are hundreds of equally pithy, and often poetic, terms unearthed by Mr. Lipton in the Books of Venery that were the constant study of anyone who aspired to the title of gentleman in the fifteenth century.

u/Concise_Pirate · 3 pointsr/etymology

Yes, these were the result of a language game that was common a few centuries ago.*Version*=1&*entries*=0

u/CapnCrunchHarkness · 3 pointsr/wikipedia

If you like that, check out the book An Exaltation of Larks by James Lipton (yes, the "Inside the Actor's Studio" guy.) that is mentioned on the Wikipedia page. It has a great introduction about these "terms of venery" and some of their origins, a really comprehensive list with illustrations, and Lipton himself even gets into creating new ones. Very cool book.

u/TheWalruus · 3 pointsr/HumansBeingBros

> collective nouns

They are also referred to as Terms of Venery or "Company terms" and some of the earliest can be found in the Book of Saint Albans, pub. 1486. A good contemporary compendium of terms of Venery is an Exaltation of Larks pub. 1993.

u/Fonzoon · 3 pointsr/todayilearned

I have a book that names different groups. It's called An Exaltation of Larks . Apparently a group of cockroaches is an "intrusion of cockroaches." "disagreement of statesmen." "explosion of italians."

Franken wrote a hilarious book about running for president before the 2000 campaign. It's in the format of a campaign diary.

It's very good, holds up well, and is full of good ideas for campaigning.

It's from their book Our Dumb Century from 1999, with faux front pages from every year of the 20th century.

They've made some good books (and some not-so-good ones), but this is by far the best IMO. And the design is great, it really really looks vintage. That makes the jokes work on a whole new level for me.

u/Teledildonic · 3 pointsr/videos

Oh shit, it's a zombie! Better break this out.

u/l_one · 3 pointsr/zombies

For the machete a Cold Steel kukri is an excellent option.

Field strip the MREs: here's how.

Get the Chinese military shovel instead, it's really awesome. Here's one link to buy it.

Would advise a Camelbak or other mini-backpack style hydration bladder, much better for mobility.

For the rope: get milspec 550 paracord.

Gorilla brand duct tape is advised.

For the multitool either SOG or Leatherman are excellent choices. A couple of good picks from each: SOG PowerAssist and PowerLock as well as the Leatherman MUT and the Charge TTi.

Check out 4Sevens for excellent quality flashlights - really these guys are among the best in the flashlight market.

For the gun I would advise a Ruger 10/22 with a folding stock for compactness. Add some 32 round interlocking magazines and a box or two of ammo (.22LR is cheap, they come in boxes of 500 or so).

I would also recommend a Red Cross multifunction solar/crank radio.

The SAS Survival Handbook and of course the Zombie Survival Guide would make good additions.

u/Hortonhearsasuicide · 3 pointsr/pics

u/tariffless · 3 pointsr/Fantasy

Pure worldbuilding and minimal narrative describes pretty well Expedition and Barlowe's Inferno by Wayne Douglas Barlowe.
Granted, these are books where the framing story (a person exploring the setting in question) is there to provide context for Barlowe's paintings, but you can do pretty much the same thing with words as he does with illustrations- take an explorer, an archaeologist, a historian, or some other sort of researcher, and follow them as they acquire knowledge about the setting. The story will thus focus on their discoveries, rendering exposition and story one and the same.
The SCP Foundation's various exploration logs are the best examples of this that I can name at present, as the characters involved in the framing story are generally anonymous redshirts whose only significance is the strange phenomena they encounter. As far as novels go, I also see the general formula in Jeff Fahy's Fragment.

Another example of an approach that works is the SCP-Foundation. There are traditional narratives on the site, but the main attraction for most of the Foundation's existence has been the collection of fictional documents describing various paranormal phenomena.

A fictional document or fictional documentary strikes me as a perfect method of doing what you seek. You can have an in-universe history book, an in-universe encyclopedia, some other sort of reference work like the Zombie Survival Guide, etc. You could call some of these "stories" by some definition of the word, I guess, but the bottom line is the format and content are quite different from what you typically see in things described as stories.

u/Cingetorix · 3 pointsr/thewalkingdead

In that case, I think everyone who wants to write a zombie flick should have Max Brooks' The Zombie Survival Guide as mandatory reading to ensure continuity regarding the capabilities of zombies in future movies. Love that book - it makes me question what the writers were thinking whenever I see a zombie doing something out of the ordinary.

u/Fen-Jai · 3 pointsr/IWantToLearn

The best way to survive a national disaster is to imagine how you would survive a zombie apocolypse. Stock up on food and water, get tourches with batteries (or better yet, wind ups), block all entrances and wait for help. Depending on the level of outbreak and how much society has broken down, you could be waiting for days, if not weeks for the government to step in.

Your costco idea works in theory except that malls and shops are generally hard to defend. Multiple entrances, concreate stairs, lots of windows. Not to mention you will have to stop every Tom, Dick and Harry from trying to raid the store.

Check out the zombie survival guide. Its ment to be a parody but theres a lot of info that works in any situation.

Check out Penis Fairies and Queef Storms or 404 Not Found (alt link, has excerpts), a couple of colouring books written (drawn?) by The Oatmeal. I personally thought they both had great pictures, though in different ways—404 is intended as a family friendly book, after all, while Penis Fairies needs no explanation.

Another funny, though markedly controversial, book would be the Trump Colouring Book, featuring such pages as 'Trump playing chess with Putin', 'Trump crossing the Delaware', 'Trump adorning the $1,000,000 bill', 'Trump bulling past Clinton and Sanders in the American Football Republicans vs Democrats match', and many, many more.

Book recommendation: An Exaltation of Larks, by James Lipton. Yes, THE James Lipton.

It is the book version of this reddit post with a history of terms.

u/Teotwawki69 · 2 pointsr/todayilearned

Fun fact -- we know a lot of these terms because some guy researched them and published a book. That guy was James Lipton (yes, that one from Inside the Actors Studio), and here's the book.

Note: Lipton found some of the terms and made others up, and the two have become permanently intertwined -- so "pandemonium of parrots" was probably made up by Lipton, while "a murder of crows" was not.

Write awesome stuff about zombies including a book entitled "The Zombie Survival Guide". I haven't read that one, but I suggest you check out "World War Z." It approaches a zombie war as it happens on a global level rather than just 8 or so survivors, addressing many sociopolitical issues and showing how different cultures would theoretically react to the outbreak.

u/EntropyMonster · 2 pointsr/DoesAnybodyElse

I've read Max Brooks' Zombie Survival Guide a few times through, and it's a brilliant manual for any major disaster, really. Good tips on fortifying against rioting masses, stockpiling of food, disposal of bodies and waste, weapon selection, etc.

I'll just leave this here

Max brooks covered it already in his howto book. I preferred world war z which was actually stories from the war. Note this all assumes its the slow moving variety of zombies, not the crazy super zombies. But in summary the following items made bikes a better option

  • lack of noise allows you to sneak past zombies on a bike
  • no need for fuel, which will likely be in short supply due to everyone taking the fuel already
  • roads will likely be blocked/crowded so a suv or other large vehicle will have trouble navigating
  • On a bike you need to watch out for zombies in cars reaching out for you

u/Charlie24601 · 2 pointsr/AskReddit

Sigh...terrible, just terrible. You guys would all be dead before the day was done.

Chainsaws? Guns? Are you retarded? THEY MAKE NOISE! That will just bring MORE zombies to your location!

The following is what you REALLY need:

  1. Any long bladed weapon, such as a naginata or shaolin spade. This will be the main close combat weapon. It has a very long reach to prevent bites and the blade can sever limbs and especially heads.

  2. A sword of any type (even 2 or 3 is good). This is VERY important. Its your backup melee weapon that you will ALWAYS need in case things get too close or you lose other weapons. Its fast, easy to use and can clear large areas at a time if you need to clear the road so to speak.

  3. Crossbow. Silent but still packs one hell of a punch. This is the one shot one kill mentality. This is NOT for taking on mobs. This is mostly for sniper work for protecting your fortress...i.e. picking off any loners who are wandering too close without attracting mobs.

  4. Fire. Whether its a molotov cocktail or a fucking flamethrower, this is what to use against the mobs. Try to avoid any close up flame weapons. Hairspray and lighters? TERRIBLE choice. Remember, zombies don't tend to feel pain, and fire takes some time to burn enough flesh to immobilze you'll just have a flaming zombie to contend with who is STILL trying to eat you.

  5. A fit human body. Yes, your OWN human body, nimwit. If your lucky, your chubby ass might survive the first few weeks using the weapons above, but once there is a zombie outbreak, its almost non-stop survival from there on. You better start doing some crunches fatass!

    As penance, you all must now read, The Zombie Survival Guide
    Either that or die.

u/wallish · 2 pointsr/scifi

Also, zombies in hot regions will dry up and break apart while zombies in cold regions are "at risk" of freezing completely (after all, it is assumed that zombies are cold-blooded and contain at least some water). Also, zombies in areas of extreme heat and humidity (rain forest) will rot very quickly, assuming that decomposition doesn't stop straight-up.

At least that's what the Zombie Survival Guide tells me.

u/Trudzilllla · 2 pointsr/AskReddit

OK, so most people will have the same basic plan: Get out of town, find remote fortifiable location. lay low, gather supplies, hold out til you can rebuild (great basic strategies Here!)

However, most people will be cramming the highways with the same strategy, then you get swarmed in the car on the way out.

SO, you need a contingency plan to hold out until you actually find a safe/quick/Stealthy way to execute the get-the-hell-outta-dodge part.


have enough supplies on hand so that you could safely bunker down where (or near to) where you are. This is good advice in general and the same supplies will help you hunker down should a hurricane or a riot sweep through or society falls apart for some other reason.

  1. Food/water - enough to last for a couple weeks, stuff that will cover your basic needs for 2 weeks- 1 month (Canned food, dried food, rice, beans, etc)
  2. Basic Defense- Guns are great and all but are loud and need ammo. Think knives, axes or bludgeons. Ideally something with some reach.
  3. Fortifications- Know how you are going to secure your shelter. Going to board up your windows? Better have the tools on hand and know what you're going to use to do it.
    4)Basic Hurricane Kit - hand-powered flashlight, Radio, signal flares etc. buy at any sporting goods store.

    Secure Shelter

    Now this part depends greatly on when/where you are when you become aware whats going on. But in general, (unless you are just pants-shittingly unaware of your surroundings) you should have a day or so between your first Zombie sighting and when stuff really starts going to shit.

    You need to have a clear idea in your head where you are going to draw the line in the sand across which the Undead shall not cross. For me this is the small section of my apartment complex. 22 units with a high iron fence all the way around. 3 entry points which can all automatically lock. I'd need to first secure and barricade these then begin to make a sweep of the neighboring units. There are 3 possibilities of what you will find. 1) Unoccupied unit - poor bastards were either caught in the initial outbreak or tried to make a run for it. make a not of these and come back for supplies. 2) Survivors - Congratulations you're not alone. enlist their help or have them keep their heads down. 3) Biters - You know what you have to do.


    Now once you have a safe defensible location for at least the short run, all planning goes out the window. Depending on how situations develop your plans are probably going to get blown to shit. Maybe the government falls faster than anticipated, so they don't have time to firebomb major cities. Maybe you become entrenched and are going to have to survive in place ad infinitum. Maybe you find your escape path and can make for the hills and follow the default plans.

    You can never be prepared - only more prepared

    TLDR; Have fun feasting on the brains of your loved ones

u/techie1980 · 2 pointsr/sysadmin

My team is somewhat specialized, but we somewhat recently released a series of SLO's. We've got a very complex and highly automated environment, so what our users wanted most was better communication. For example, if a high severity ticket hits during 24x5, we will commit to 30 minute acknowledgement time, and one hour during the weekends. (We're also using a follow-the-sun model for coverage and have a rotating oncall schedule on each side, so no one is getting paged in the middle of their night.) Some of the time my entire acknowledgement is that the problem being reported isn't high severity, or doesn't sound like my problem, and immediately lower it. This only works when:

  • The people on your team are highly competent

  • You management generally supports you. The platform that I support is addressed by other , extremely complex systems. Sometimes it is very difficult for a user to figure out where my team's systems end and some other teams' systems begin. But it is flatly not my problem to try and untangle the comings and goings of management and factions inside of each business unit.

    Most tickets that are not high priority have between a four and eight hour acknowledgement time. We won't commit on a time-to-close because the team is matrix managed, and full of lazy admins who automate things whenever possible. So as an oncall, I'm expected to find long term solutions for "routine" stuff. I've had some tickets sit open in my queue for well over a year. The user is made aware that it's going to be a while, and it's up to me and my management, and some other management, to figure out the priority levels.

    As for number of tickets closed per day, I think that's a terrible metric and should be avoided at all costs. I'll tell you how I dealt with that when I worked someplace that drank the ITIL kool-aid: Once per week (or every other week) I came in early and blasted through maybe a few hundred password reset/lockout tickets and closed the tickets that were obvious fallout from some other larger issue. My numbers looked amazing, and it was completely misleading. (I should note that I was a senior sysadmin at the time, with people working under me.)

    Even for monitoring, I'd argue for a response time metric, but the warning I'll give you here is that people will treat it like a video game, and constantly ack alerts to stop their phone from buzzing.

    As for the rest: automated metrics are your friend. One of the things that we had to put a lot of brain power into was figuring out the dumbest metrics we could run from hosts all over the world. Stuff that's difficult to break and can report on something easy and graphable. And is understandable by our users.

    To that end, figure out what your users need and address that. Do they need your servers to have high uptime? You can monitor that, figure out the major chokepoints, and work through that. Do your users completely care about having a working laptop all of the time? Invest in loaners. Are garden gnomes plotting to kill you? distribute this book

>This is something I was wondering about that. What's the deal with people who are like 'I'm sick of heavy handed, <current year> political crap in my comics' getting into bed with the guy who made Trump the Rabbit and Trump in Space, or whatever they were called?

I would say there is a slight misconstruing of things, at least with regards to Lim (open to correction /u/AnarcrotheAlchemist or anyone else that knows better);

Lim's first book (Thump: The First Bundred Days) and his Trump-themed parody of My Hero Academia (My Hero Magedemia, natch) are stand-alone, boutique publications. More than novelty gifts (I have Thump, which is delightful, and Just Some Guy reviewed Magedemia rather glowingly), but they aren't ongoing comics or soft relaunches or things of that nature.

Are they political? Oh yeah! But they're not meant to be anything but political, and they are up-front about that.

Obviously I can't speak for Lim, but certainly my objection is not that things like these (or the analogous Obama/Reagan hero worship stuff) exist, but the infiltration of hard-left politics into places that weren't just previously politically 'neutral', but places where it is detrimental to the story.

Where they intersect with CG is (again guessing) because Lim was attacked by The Mary Sue (the OG Asian White Nationalist) and clearly ostracized from mainstream comics even before EVS started getting hit.

I would slightly differ from Anarcro in that I think CG (much like GG) is really more a movement of people that have been ostracized from the mainstream combined with a consumer revolt than a coherent movement with a unifying message.

We must bring our brethren and sisteren up to speed. (I know that that is not a word, but it is very cromulent to the point at hand.)

An "exaltation of larks"? Yes! And a "leap of leopards," a "parliament of owls," an "ostentation of peacocks," a "smack of jellyfish," and a "murder of crows"! For those who have ever wondered if the familiar "pride of lions" and "gaggle of geese" were only the tip of a linguistic iceberg, James Lipton has provided the definitive answer: here are hundreds of equally pithy, and often poetic, terms unearthed by Mr. Lipton in the Books of Venery that were the constant study of anyone who aspired to the title of gentleman in the fifteenth century. When Mr. Lipton's painstaking research revealed that five hundred years ago the terms of venery had already been turned into the Game of Venery, he embarked on an odyssey that has given us a "slouch of models," a "shrivel of critics," an "unction of undertakers," a "blur of Impressionists," a "score of bachelors," and a "pocket of quarterbacks." This ultimate edition of An Exaltation of Larks is Mr. Lipton's brilliant answer to the assault on language and literacy in the last decades of the twentieth century. In it you will find more than 1,100 resurrected or newly minted contributions to that most endangered of all species, our language, in a setting of 250 witty, beautiful, and remarkably apt engravings.

>"the Left can't or refuses to get humor (Sen. Franken)."

oh that's funny. it's the conservo-facists who don't get humor. fox news tried to create a jon stewart-like news parody show, "The 1/2 Hour News Hour". it was cancelled shortly after it started & bombed.

al franken "refuses to get humor". you're killing me. everyone in the Reich wing wishes they had an ounce of al franken's humor. you've forgotten about al franken & michael jordan on saturday night live or franken's all too appropriately book titled "Rush Limbaugh Is a Big Fat Idiot"

all the Right knows is how to use hatred, fear & division to piss off it's audience and to divide the country. they've been doing it for decades.

here's your Fox news citations. here's eric bolling on fox news saying that obama was specifically "chugging 40s" when he was visiting the guinness brewery in ireland. and bolling also commented that obama was hosting "gangstas" and "hoods" in the hizzy.

there is no reason for a so-called "news organization" to being using phrases like "chugging 40s" or "hoods in the hizzy". the only purpose of their usage is to incite or reinforce racist stereotypes & racist feelings within the bigoted fox news audience.

>"The things you mention are words. I'd like to think that we are grown up enough to not fear them."

it's not words that hurt it's the context or the implied meaning of the words that is what we need to worry about as george carlin so famously said. and carlin would be the 1st to verify that fox news & limbaugh's usage of racially charged language has one very specific purpose - to incite the bigotry & racial hatred that is very prevalent within their conservo-facist audience.

>"Limbaugh's every observation is flawed."

limbaugh's observations aren't flawed. they are very specifically engineered to help promote the agenda of a very specific group - corporations & the ultra-rich who are paying limpdick millions of $$ to spread their propaganda. and rush does it very well. that's why he's paid so handsomely.

That is true, they did surrender. Or rather, Petain did. De Gaulle did not. But I contest your claim that it was because of their getting steam rolled. The idea of French soldiers surrendering a lot seems to have been a recent invention, following first the Onion using the title a lot in their headlines in Our Dumb Century (1990), then Fark, and The Simpsons (1995), and finally being propagated, according to Quora, as a stab at the French as 'revenge' for the French refusal to help the USA invade Iraq in 2003.

My favorite piece of zombie culture would have to be the book The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks

It is a book all about how to survive a zombie apocolypse and has a good way of helping you suspend your disbelief- when I was a kid reading it I thought the stories at the end were real...

Also he made the book World War Z after this one, which became the loose basis for the movie of the same name.

u/BrokenMasterpiece · 1 pointr/movies

Your question is answered in the Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks. I can't remember exactly why at the moment, but the answer is in there.

u/paella_face · 1 pointr/secretsanta

I've been making a "joke" survival kit for my boyfriend. This is what I have in it so far:

I'm going to throw in a couple of those small bottles of liquor to sterilize wounds of course ;). I'm also hoping to find a funny crowbar-eque bottle opener or something. For his main gift, I'm going to include a nice pocket knife and get his name engraved on it. I'd love more ideas for things to include, if anyone can think of something.

u/homergonerson · 1 pointr/AskReddit

If you have the time, read The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks. It is very informative, as well as interesting. Provides all the (basic) info you need to know about zombies and zombie survival.

u/ThatCantBeGood · 1 pointr/gaming

Have you read this? I'm sure you have, but if not, it is definitely worth the read for some inspiration. Also, I would love if you stuck to the type of zombies described in this book.

Edit: Forgot the link. Stupid.

u/ihatetheterrorists · 1 pointr/CasualConversation

OP, I work in a Risk Management field too. I basically keep things in the city's public realm in good shape and run zombie and catastrophic details through my head all day. It is sort of fun. At a recent annual review my boss said she loved the work I do because I 'live this' kind of world. I can totally thank zombie apocalypse scenarios for sending me down this career path. That being said everyone should read Max Brooke' "The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead".

u/alexanderwales · 1 pointr/rational

The first thing that comes to mind is The Zombie Survival Guide, though it's probably not widely applicable enough for your tastes (though much of what it says is good for a general end of the world scenario).

u/avenlanzer · 1 pointr/PostCollapse

The Zombie Survival Guide is for more than just surviving zombies. It's all about survivial in a post apocolyptic world. It just also includes guides to dealing with zombies. Very useful for exactly the desire you want, and even more useful in the event of z-day.

u/leontrotskitty · 1 pointr/sydney

Easy, just get him a Zombie survival guide from Dymocks/Kinokuniya. What you have to watch out for is that you don't get him a shit one, of which there are many. IMO, The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks is the best one out there. If he hasn't read it, World War Z also by Max Brooks is excellent reading. It's not so much a guide as a collection of individual recounts, reports and stuff from different people over the course of a zombie breakout. It reads realistically which is more than I can say for the majority of Zombie related "survival guides" and books that are just stupid. They're making a movie out of it with Brad Pitt starring - just to show it's popularity.

If he hasn't seen The Walking Dead, getting him the seasons on DVD might be a good idea. Awesome TV show - again, realistic. If he's seen them, don't bother. I mean, he can just download them anyway so I guess this would be a crap gift unless he really likes the show. There are graphic novels that the show is based on which might be good.

If he's a gamer, might be good to get him ARMA II: Combined Operations. The reason I say that there's a great zombie survival mod for it called Day Z which is basically an online multiplayer open-world zombie survival like game. Trust me, he'll like it. Steam summer sale is on right now so ARMA II is 20% - if you can wait, don't buy it yet as it may go on sale for more (possibly up to 75%) if it goes up as a daily deal/flash sale/community choice. There's also a The Walking Dead game which I've heard is good. It's already been a daily deal so 25% is as good as it will get now.

Last of all, making him a kit might be cool. I put together this for a redditor last year. You can probably make a better one than me - I'll admit I cheaped out a little. Get a box or a backpack (you can cheap out on the backpack) and fill it up with things like a flashlight, a med kit (bandaids, bandages, surgical scissors, sports tape etc. things you can buy from a pharmacy), water purification tablets (this especially adds to it IMO), food (canned, power bars or, if you want to go the extra mile, MREs), thick army socks, a compass, etc. Basically just shit you'd take with you if you were going camping. Make it as compact/lightweight as possible.

Well, fuck, that turned out to be a lot longer than I intended. Anyway, good luck.

EDIT: Oh yeah, one more thing. What I did for that same redditor last year was that I wrote a survival plan for him. Basically, if you get him that Max Brooks Survival Guide, one of the things they suggest is hiding out in a prison (fortification, food, water, exercise yard, accommodation, weapons, remote etc.) - what I did was that I researched prisons in the walkable/bikable vicinity of his house and I mapped out routes to them from his house on a map I printed of his house from google maps.

I would have been nice if the person posting that interesting piece of information would have listed the source. Max Brooks' Zombie Survival Guide.

u/TheColonel · 1 pointr/zombies

Let me ask a simple question... how, exactly, do you intend to sever the spine or severely impact the brain of a zombie with that?

While I don't agree that the Quad 50 is the way to go, there's no chance that gun would have the firepower required to take down countless zombie hordes.

As mentioned here:
>Brooks also scoffs at my notion of using a heavy machine gun, pointing out — quite rightly — that zombies can only be killed with a perfect head shot.

That said, I'd recommend educating yourself.

u/satansballs · 1 pointr/books

Obligatory wiki links: Dystopian Literature. Although, some of the titles listed don't seem to fit (The Dispossessed?). Nuclear holocaust fiction, and your general apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction.

Some of the better/more popular ones:

  • Where Late the Sweet Birds Sang Kate Wilhelm.

  • Eternity Road Jack McDevitt. Well written, but not very insightful.

  • The Postman David Brin.

  • Mockingbird Walter Tevis. Great read. Think Idiocracy, with a serious take. Humanity's totally run by robots, everyone's forgotten how to read and think for themselves, and the world population's dropped to almost nothing.

  • We Yevgeny Zamyatin. The inspiration for George Orwell's 1984. Not the best read IMO, but some people claim it's better than 1984. It's possible I read a poor translation.

  • Island Aldous Huxley. It's a utopian island surrounded by a dystopian world. Might not fit in this list, but it's a good read if you like Huxley. I think it was his last novel.

  • 1984 George Orwell. One of my favorite novels. I have a bumper sticker with the quote "War is Peace, Ignorance is Strength, Freedom is Slavery", which is a slogan from the book. (Also, a sticker on my mirror with "Under the spreading chestnut tree, I sold you and you sold me"). The link points to Animal Farm and 1984.

  • Fahrenheit 451 Ray Bradbury. Another must read. Very well written, thought-provoking novel. Is it still required reading in schools?

  • Earth Abides George Stewart.

  • Alas, Babylon Pat Frank. Lucifer's Hammer Larry Niven/Jerry Pournelle. I'm grouping these two together because they're very similar, both in setting and politics. I didn't really enjoy either. The politics were not at all subtle, and the characters fit too neatly into stereotypes, and too obviously the writer's hero fantasy. Still, they're pretty popular, so try them out and feel free to disagree with me.

  • Brave New World Aldous Huxley. Really just a utopia that's rough around the edges, if I'm remembering it correctly (also called an anti-utopia, thank you wikipedia). Another must read.

  • A Canticle for Leibowitz Walter Miller.

  • Memoirs Found in a Bathtub Stanislaw Lem. Another favorite. I once created a text adventure based on this book. It was about as frustrating as that Hitchhiker's Guide game.

  • The Road Cormac McCarthy.

  • Philip K. Dick It's hard to keep track of PKD's novels, but some of them are dystopian, all of them worth reading. Favorites: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep (also known as/inspired Blade Runner), Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said, The Man in the High Castle.

  • The Handmaid's Tale and Oryx and Crake Margaret Atwood.

  • Y: The Last Man A graphical novel/comic collection. Decent art, great story.

    Zombies: World War Z, Raise the Dead, Marvel Zombies, Zombie Survival Guide, Day By Day Armageddon, I Am Legend.

    Also, just for kicks, some of my favorite dystopian movies:
    Brazil, Soylent Green, 12 Monkeys, Blade Runner, Akira, Children of Men, Dark City, A Boy and His Dog, Logan's Run, Idiocracy, Equillibrium.

That would be really cool! If it was possible for someone to rewrite Star Wars as a Shakespearean drama, then Eva surely could be given the same treatment.

On a similar note, I've always thought it would be awesome if someone rewrote Eva as an epic poem- maybe in alliterative verse like in Beowulf (which like Eva, describes a series of battles against progressively stronger monsters), but then have it occasionally turn into super modern experimental verse to describe the weird surreal stuff like the Komm Susser Tod sequence.

u/Gewdgawddamn · 1 pointr/Israel

I think that as a financier yeah even the gov't should exercise discretion on what it can and cannot fund. However I think it's pretty immature for that government to limit culture based on something so tame as nudity. However, that can be just as applicable to the performance. A nude performance just to act in the nude doesn't really sound like it adds anything other than to be a cheap gimmick. Nude Shakespeare had this problem cause that's all it did. But others that took Shakespeare and blended it with other media or "modernized" it actually had to exercise thought into why it held a purpose.

Not to say all nude performance is just that empty of substance outside of its nudity. But it really is up to the creator to justify it. Yes, nude is our natural, human state. Art and culture aren't natural, human states, though. They're intellectual expressions. So expecting a creator to validate the intelligence of the piece isn't a bad standard to hold, regardless of its subjectivity.

Okay, I know you were just making a reference, but if you like Shakespeare and Star Wars check this shit out. It's the entirety of A New Hope painstakingly translated into iambic pentameter, oftentimes practically line-for-line, with a few beautiful soliloquies thrown in for good measure. It was done by someone who's obviously a huge fan of both Shakespeare and Star Wars, and if you are too you'll love it. I believe he's done Episodes IV, V, and VI, although I've only read IV. Can't recommend it enough.

Yeah, brah! That's what I said! It's totally cool to make fun of a person's looks as long as they are not female or a democrat!

We agree you can't make fun of Nancy Pelosi's looks, right? Or Hilldogs? Or AOC? Even though they are rich and vain and powerful?

And as we see with democrats who are comedians - as well as many who are not - they can say the outlandish things republicans can't say as long as they call it "edgy" or "satire"... and that gives them a free pass.

I mean - we haven't even started in on Trump's famous hair or even more famous mouth shape, gnome sane? Or that big lard butt! All 100% AOK to make fun of as often and as ruthlessly as possible, totally not bullying or bad in any way... In fact: Teach your kids to make fun of his hair and skin color and fat butt and mouth shape! There are so many books to choose from that will help you start them down this path!

It's 100% sanctioned by democrats and democrat-comedians! No worries at all! Insult his looks until your heart is content! Who cares what anybody else thinks about that!

Except maybe... when people go to vote... Nah - that couldn't effect the vote! It must be Russians using mind control techniques!

The word democracy connotes mob rule, while the word republic reminds us that the President is not our King. You are right that "representative democracy" is more or less the same as "constitutional republic."

I don't know everything about Venona. My understanding has been that the decoded transcripts revealed extensive penetration of the State Department. The anti-anti-Communists vilified McCarthy for his witch-hunts, but the Venona transcripts vindicated him.

Al Franken, the author of Rush Limbaugh Is a Big Fat Idiot is your hero? Whoa. I would propose Thomas Sowell as a more worthy thinker.

The term "hivemind" is meant to denigrate the unthinking masses here at Reddit who downvote every submission with which they disagree, particularly conservative ideas in /r/politics. I would estimate them at less than 30%, however, which still ranks Reddit as one of the best places for intellectual discussion on the Internet.
