    Survival

    Ok, I am a member of a few forums, and this topic has come up a lot recently. If there was a global EMP (such as the style of the TV show Revolution), how would you cope and what would you do?

    Nah...thinking long term. What could you do? Do you have any training that would be useful in that situation. First aid, carpentry, smithing, hunting etc.

    And this isn't a plug for my ebook either. The tension with the crimea situation could escalate and something *could* happen. Just a what if.

    Surely it would be better to negotiate living with them and learning from them? (though I like your style! haha)

    Nah! I'm fairly competent, just lazy.

    Plus whichever survival nut i choose as victim would probably want to be in charge and that's never gonna happen!

    Wait for the BOFHs to image new servers and restore from tape and turn on one of my various old machines.

    An EMP would do [censored] all.

    You know an EMP would cripple anything electronic, whether its on or off right?

    Also, can't believe you chose that show over Dark Angel

    I'd try and get to one of these tribes that are still living without technology because they will be the survivors.

    Whilst I liked dark angel, they still had full on electricity, even though it was "post apocalyptic". I chose revolution, because they have small pockets of it due to the pendant things they have.

    ^ That's an ace idea.

    I dunno. No real skills except martial arts tbh. We'd need an EduGeek survival team I reckon, then we can roam the highways in big V8s like Mad Max.

    Drive south to north, pick up EduGeekers and guns and tins, remote Scottish island, farm animals and crops, raid mainland for tech/solar etc, profit?
