Military manuals online

They all appear to be United States training manuals, I didn't go through them all but they seem to be legitimate. There are plenty of useful reads for people who want to increase their general knowledge of even prepare for ZPAW. Scout Platoon, Military Driving, First Aid, Ranger Handbook, 16" Battleship guns, etc etc etc.
As my brain is reeling over it, knowledge like this would be currency in a ZPAW..
Baby hook the generator up to the photocopier.. We're having steak tonight!!!

The civilian zombie survival manual reads something like "Push the couch in front of the door and cry hysterically why you try to call the police."
"I may not have the right to do it, but you don't have the power to stop me."

Print out the ones that apply to you and compile into a single comprehensive manual?
These days though some of the manufacturers manuals are comprised of just enough information to take the slide off.

Maybe. But what's better? No knowledge or bad, outdated knowledge?

I guess your right... Completely wrong information could get you into more trouble than no information in a lot of cases. I guess like my English teacher would always say, "Use common sense, and confirm your information from multiple sources."

When I got deployed to Panama they gave us playing cards with local posionus plants, insects, and reptiles on them. I still got them packed away somewhere. on a side note I lost $80 one night because of them playing poker.

I would love to see those cards. Dig em up and post pics.
The cards that they issued out were playing cards, with pics and info on the face about plants,insects, reptiles to watch out for in the area, It was a jungle enviroment. So we had a lot of down time and played poker with them. They were like aircraft or vehicle reconition cards. I might still have them if my kids havent gotten a hold of them. The aces were snakes , low cards plants.
