BattleShip Island - Ultimate Zombie Refuge

Looks similar to Fallout 3 ruins.

I can't help but notice how much can be accomplished with sufficient concrete and forms to hold it. With a little forethought it is possible to make a site nearly impenetrable.

I like the "Walled City" concept. I have seen examples of this with sea containers. You have an interior area which is open to sunlight and weather but the outside is very discouraging and you usually have one point of entry which is a narrow choke channel. If you cover the interior area with silk tarpaulins or netting then it is difficult to even throw something over the wall into the courtyard.

Hey Tex, the most literal battleship island would be Ft. Drum, the American built concrete battleship, atop a reef, in Manila Bay, before WWII. 1000 pound bombs just bounced off the 25 foot thick concrete. American recaptured Ft. Drum from the Japanese in 1945 with a means simpler though: spraying the openings with gunfire to keep the defenders buttoned up inside, a ship was able to pull up along side, and was able to pump a few thousand gallons of fuel oil into the fort's ventilation openings . . .

Ft. drum today, picture; the 'deck' is 13 meters above the sea,

Hitler's bloodline lives on.

Its all in the eyes.

The guy has Hitler's genes alright and he is a Hitler apologist. And some of the top rated comments on the article are supportive.

If I was a Zionist Jew living in a white country, or one of those self hating white liberal Marxist types, I'd be packing my bags right now.

If the British are becoming nostalgic for fucking Hitler, of all people, you multikult types have made the shit list, in every white country.

Just saying...

You know you are a survivalist of a sort when such a location has a certain allure to it...

Not even 40 years later and the whole place looks as if it is ready to fall into one heap.

No wonder there is not much left of the ancient world prior to the Sumerians.

A while back Tex had a post about how the Kwa was out of control based on a news story about an incident on a public bus.

Here are the stats from 2010 about public bus incidents in St. Louis:

"According to Metro, the system had 16 assaults and three robberies in Missouri in 2010, the most recent year in which statistics were available. People board Metro trains and buses some 40 million times each year."

Nineteen incidents reported in a year with 40 million passengers. Yes, it's all going to hell.
