I don't think the garbage thing would be such a good idea. Just keep your house as anonymous as possible. An underground shelter could be quite nice, but it takes a great deal of skill, time, and building materials. I don't know how pheasible that is for you, but don't end up killing yourself because of a safety mistake while building this thing. If you don't have any experience, you're better off not doing it at all. Here's a few articles on it. [url]http://undergroundbombshelter.com/building-your-bomb-shelter.htm[/url] [url]http://www.ehow.com/how_4898789_build-underground-bunker-shelter.html[/url] And ultimately I should mention, take these articles with a grain of salt. I'm sure they're written by amateurs and not actual contractors.
I highly doubt he should build a underground shelter. Even if he'd have the materials, it's hard work and his body probably doesn't have the energy ready. Also building a shelter takes a long time. The war would probably end before he finishes.
[QUOTE=commandhat;47892797]I have what could possibly be a really bad idea. Take some of the garbage at the street and spread it towards your house just a little more in the shape of footsteps, so it looks like your location was already robbed. This would cause people to ignore your place because someone's already been through it. Though it could also cause rebels to focus on your general area more closely since they would see activity around your general area. I would also consider some manner of underground shelter. Digging a small hole under your building or something. Anything to put stuff between you and the explosions going off.[/QUOTE] No offence but the whole streets are filled with rubbish since the Rubbish Trucks haven't been in service since the war started, also I don't really have a shovel to dig a hole, even if I did I have no idea where I would do it, but I appreciate your ideas. As for Today's news: There's barely nothing really, just regular routine of bombing and lack of electricity. but for some reason my cat now has a play mate and now I have two reasons I can't sleep. So I expect my cat to get kittens in 4 months, Again.
Today's News: Apparently the hospitals are now having lack of medicine aids and tools to heal the sick, Well am not currently ill yet, but it's actually an unfortunate for those who happened to get sick in the wrong time and place. Life Discovery News: As I was working, I discovered an odd little bug who kept staring at me for half an hour [thumb]http://i.imgur.com/UznHldL.jpg[/thumb] It was quite odd, it didn't fly or do anything, just kept staring at me, Until all the sudden it did this. [thumb]http://i.imgur.com/3DYNHx2.jpg[/thumb] [thumb]http://i.imgur.com/PlqRT3v.jpg[/thumb] I don't think the bomb are the only ones who murdered the rebels. [I]It was This.[/I]

Look at that bug. Plotting its next move. Learning. Watching. [I]Waiting[/I]
Today's news: Today we heard that our president was going to talk in the news in Saudi Arabia, as we open the generator early just to hear him, it turns out all he did was just explain literally everything what happened since the start of the conflict. I mean sure, that might be good to the people who doesn't know much about the conflict but for fuck sake mate. Atleast give us something to hope for other than the fact that everything has been [I]Bad[/I] Also bloody hell what the hell is wrong with the neighbourhood cats, one time they having intercourse, one time they have a fight, and I could swear to god they were having a Intercourse WHILE being in a cat fight, like imagine two cats humping each other while readying their feet and claws for the ultimate transformer movie. Also I fell down from my chair, as I fell down with my chair the best possible spot for the arm chair to hit is between my [I]Arse[/I], I forgot how to walk for 5 hours... Let's have a riddle, to change the phase for a bit since there's nothing new also am close to finish a drawing A Pokemon from Generation 3, lives in a cave, his first evolution walks in 4 legs, his second grows a tail, but in Third he walks in 2. What is the first evolution of that Pokemon?, Also for some reason he likes to eat Spoons.
well i'm not sure if you know or not, but the feline penis is barbed, in order to scratch the inner lining of the cat's vagina and make it much easier for the eggs to attach intercourse is very painful for the female cat, and it's p likely that she's fighting while they're fucking

I wouldn't want to have my insides torn up, nor would I want to get pussy stank under my penis barbs.

So am opening the generator for half an hour so am going to post early discovery. so apparently the Rebels are now going to stores asking workers to give up their money, apparently my Mother had to witness that scene but the Register decided that he was sick of their shit and told them to bug off, they actually bug off, and my Mother just got her things and ran the fuck out cause she was afraid they were going to take their aks and shot the supermarket. So now they actually trying to get money from citizens for their war machines, before they were stealing petrol, now they still do that AND stealing money, Brilliant. Also the drawing I was doing somehow I fucked it up when outlining so am going to have a fucking field day. I hate my hands.
I know it has been said a hundred times, but stay safe man.
Before I say anything I want all to know this first. Today I got lamb meat since I didn't want to spend my whole life on Roasted Chicken, I realised the Butcher Shop gave me an extra meat part, so I was actually delighted so I praised that meat part for 30 minutes and think about what way should I cook it. It turns out for 30 minutes I been holding a Lamb's penis with it's sacks. Let that sink in. Today's News: Apparently we actually have a victory today, Aden's Airport is now have been Taken over by Aden's fighters, that's a relief but they still checking out the Airport. As For the current Rebels, the Rebel Leader decided to be a smartass and ordered that all Rebels should remove the bandages on their arms, Which basically just says their logo (The I hate Americans and am still a angry virgin), so now they look like people with normal clothes holding guns. Which is a problem since there are people who has guns but they not actually bad people or they are just normal guards to someone's house. Let's see how it turns out tomorrow.
Hell it might be a cock n balls but it's meat and it was free, hey?
[QUOTE=Enola;47924068]Hell it might be a cock n balls but it's meat and it was free, hey?[/QUOTE] The last thing I would not want to remember while I get out of this place is the fact that I survived the war by eating someone's Cock.
In the very least, I'm glad to hear you've got enough food to be picky about what you eat :v:
After I read what I posted in the previous post, I realised this is probably why my name is Wheatley. Today's news: The houthis are now being a pretty evil Organization, literally almost as if they are ISIS children. The first thing they did today, a gang of Rebels were watching the Yemeni Bank, they saw a man taking out his saving from the credit machine, as the Rebels decided to mug him the security guard of the bank went in as a badass and shot one of the three Rebels, one of them died, but unfortunately a citizen got hit while he was walking by. The second thing they did, There is Man who owns a Gas Station in Marib, the Rebels first stole his Son away from him, and the next day they came to him to order him to give up all his Property and petrol of his gas station, He refused. He didn't make it.
Is it easy to access a firearm in your country, seems it wouldn't be all that terrible to have some sort of personal defense about you whilst dealing with your current situation.

If you intend to use the weapon for self defense, keep a loaded magazine (if it's magazine-fed) in the ammo container for easy access. If you want to know more, I can keep going. I can give you some tips on selecting a weapon, as well as knowledge on how to use it effectively.

I think it would be bad for him to have a firearm, just seeing a weapon while being in a warzone could cause very bad misunderstandings to happen. Really would like him not to be mistaken for a combatant, by any side.

Today's news: Apparently today we going to do a History Class, once upon time there was a lovely place called the Yemen Door, which was basically behind that door was the first ever Yemeni City where it all started which was also very beautiful looking and also for selling cool merchandise.

[QUOTE=zach1193;47940117]Well no but do you really want to be defenseless in a warzone either? a simple handgun would suffice.[/QUOTE] Honestly his biggest fear is Saudi airstrikes, which a handgun isn't really suitable for combating. Not to mention a gun is more dangerous to himself than others if he has no proper gun training. Simply owning a weapon does not make you defensible. It's like when my girlfriend thought about looking for a knife for her purse "for protection". I asked if she knew how to use one defensively, which was of course 'no'. So I prevented her from buying one because she's more likely to cut herself than defend herself with it.

The Missiles are still in the Top 2 at the moment.
Do you have any kind of heavy tape, like duct tape? If so, spread it out around your windows like a spider web. That'll greatly reduce the amount of shards and breaking if that were to happen. Residents in the southeast US do that to prevent damaged windows from hurricane winds blowing their windows out. May not totally prevent the window from bursting, but it'll greatly reduce the amount of broken glass and shards flying. If not duct tape, any kind of tape will work if enough is applied. [img]https://cmgpbpeyeonthestorm.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/tape111.jpg[/img]
But all I got is cheap transparent tape, and When I gone out today I noticed most of the library stores that has these tape are closed
Having a bed sheet over the window may help as well, at least in catching debris (though how well this works depends on how close the blast is bursting the window), though you'll be unable to look outside them.
[QUOTE=Emperor Scorpious II;47940783]though you'll be unable to look outside them.[/QUOTE] I might have actually forgot that windows are used to look outside, not as light sources from the sun. I appreciate all the helpful tips I really do, and I am considering it,but to be honest it's been 4 days and the bombing has been dramatically decreased, I can sometimes hear them but either they are really far away to even cause an Air Wave Effect or they just like their, just bombing some place really far away. But am still keeping these information incase they decided that Napalm is still the best option, As for now the problem is the Rebels are now stealing and even Murdering Citizens for their War Machines. The fact that they did it at the same street as mine and my mother almost witnessed a Robbery is a bit unpleasant. It's like you reading that one page that conclude the problem only for the next page to bring Another Problem.
