Default interesting though about body in SHTF...

I was studying biochemistry today...talked about appendix and all that good stuff. Lead me to think about prehistoric humans, their everyday life would be Super SHTF for us. So most of us are thinking we'd need a six pack body, able to run 100 meters, or a mile, and be completely fit. Which in turn means you will have no fat reserves. Looking back our ancestors were fat and stocky= go on for a few days without food.


That^^^ is better than this:



^(anyone who dk him, thats justin beber...worst singer ever)

If you think about the local street people, they are also living in a post apocalyptic SHTF scenario as well.

Whatever happened to them in their lives, loss of jobs, loss of homes, too much debt, too much alcohol, too much drugs, born mentally ill, or whatever, modern society does not have any practical room for them anywhere, and so modern society simply does not exist for them anymore.

I think about them all the time because they are all over downtown panhandling around the office buildings where I work.

Everyone's going to have an opinion on this one and mine is that some body fat is a good thing no matter what. A few years ago my gail bladder quit working. I dropped 40 lbs in 1 1/2 months because I couldn't keep food down (starvation). I am very thankful that I had some extra pounds to loose. I've often wondered how that would've turned out if I hadn't had a few extra pounds of body fat? That does't mean one shouldn't still be in good shape though.

Exactly, everyone knows in zombieland the first rule is cardio, and the fatties go first. That means I'm screwed. Lol

right up until 1900's if someone was skinny it meant they were poor and undesirable, in other words ugly. skinny being pretty is really only a modern thing. the super models of today would be mocked and ridiculed for their hideousness a century ago...

historically fat was a sign of success in life and a very desirable thing to be. it meant you had a very good job and was successful in life

If SHTF it is the skinny ones who will die off first.

That's what happened in WW2 Europe and Asia when the embargoes and the war production took over. Especially in Japan and Germany.

Each 1/2 lb of body fat is a day's worth of energy. That's a day that a skinny person, male or female, does not have.

Default What a Great Day!

I've just learned a) I'm gorgeous and b) I'm gonna live forever!!!

Seriously tho, skinny people get sick and die early in emergency situations. Sorry. Now, foreheads -- what girl we'd call an egghead today were considered beauties before the time round-women were.
