Contest in October, Facebook Invitation & Revolution Pilot Online Now!

Tribe -

Random smattering of stuff for you today.

Contest Coming...
First up, we're planning another photo contest for October--last year's Zombie Weaponry contest was epic, and we're hoping we can top that big a large margin this time around. Exact nature is to be determined, so stand by on that one. I can guarantee it will be something fun.

We're going to be doing a weekly update post, versus a daily update as we've done in the past, to allow the rest of the blog content to continue along uninterrupted.

If you have prizes that you would like to donate to the cause, please drop me a line @ teotwawki.blog@gmail.com. You will receive mention during our weekly update.

  1. Facebook?!? NEVER! Facebook is for those with bad OPSEC. No thanks!

    As for the Revolution pilot- I just watched the pilot episode. It was OK, I guess. In the opening sequence, a man bursts into his house with his arms loaded with groceries. He says to his wife, "Plug up the sinks and bathtub and fill them up! Now! We don't have much time!" His wife then says, "It's happening, isn't it?" He just gives her a stern look of acknowledgment. I could just see that scene playing out in my own household. Eerie. It then fast forwards 15 years. 15 years of no power. I was disappointed with the fast forward. They should have at least done a 5 minute summary of what was entailed in the immediate aftermath, or how many people died. I won't go any further than that. I don't want to ruin it for anybody. I would recommend it. I give it a 7.5 out of 10.....For now. Hopefully, the characters will more fully develop, and the actors will get into character more in the following episodes.

    1. OPSEC issues granted - would you participate in a web forum?

      Delete
    2. Yes. I do participate in web forums. I am currently a senior member of "The Mental Militia Forums". I, however, will have nothing to do with Facebook, or any other social networking site. I'd probably get nabbed and placed in a mental institution. That seems to be all the rage for people like me lately....LOL

    3. Maybe it's the whole Loco thing?

      I think the survival/prepper community in general tends strongly towards privacy and OPSEC, for generally good reasons mixed in with antisocial grumpiness. The end result though, is that the community tends to be fragmented and isolated. Lots of people on their own.

      There's obviously great power when knowledge, expertise and resources are pooled. I've seen Facebook pages used to do so successfully in the past - IIRC, one can create a dummy account without too much trouble if they are worried about the OPSEC aspects.

    4. I have a dummy FB account with my Dog's name and a real one. Hope you're not offended if I "Like" with my dummy account. I honestly don't want people knowing I prep. I will get grumpy if they show up at my gate for TEOTWAWKI.

    5. Do you actually think that TPTB don't know that you have a dummy account. They can trace the IP address you know....LOL....Hell! "Anonymous" just claimed that they lifted over 12 million Apple Unique Device Identifiers (UDIDs) from an FBI computer and released 1 million of them as an archive. The leaked data included names, phone numbers and addresses. The PTB are not "in the dark". At all! Trust me. Everyone the even logs on to some sites are automatically added to one government watch list or another.

      And yes, Alex. It just may be the "Loco" thing....LOL

      The fact that the "prepper" community is fragmented and isolated, is not such a bad thing. Plausible deniability.

    6. Diablo -

      There's always the TOR browser. Bounces your IP address around and makes it hard/impossible to track you.

  2. Loved it. Waiting for the rest.

  3. I think they will be using a lot of flash backs to fill in the 15 year gap just like they did in establishing the link between Monroe and Miles at the end. For me I liked it and plan to keep watching.
