Easy, just get him a Zombie survival guide from Dymocks/Kinokuniya. What you have to watch out for is that you don't get him a shit one, of which there are many. IMO, The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks is the best one out there. If he hasn't read it, World War Z also by Max Brooks is excellent reading. It's not so much a guide as a collection of individual recounts, reports and stuff from different people over the course of a zombie breakout. It reads realistically which is more than I can say for the majority of Zombie related "survival guides" and books that are just stupid. They're making a movie out of it with Brad Pitt starring - just to show it's popularity.

If he hasn't seen The Walking Dead, getting him the seasons on DVD might be a good idea. Awesome TV show - again, realistic. If he's seen them, don't bother. I mean, he can just download them anyway so I guess this would be a crap gift unless he really likes the show. There are graphic novels that the show is based on which might be good.

If he's a gamer, might be good to get him ARMA II: Combined Operations. The reason I say that there's a great zombie survival mod for it called Day Z which is basically an online multiplayer open-world zombie survival like game. Trust me, he'll like it. Steam summer sale is on right now so ARMA II is 20% - if you can wait, don't buy it yet as it may go on sale for more (possibly up to 75%) if it goes up as a daily deal/flash sale/community choice. There's also a The Walking Dead game which I've heard is good. It's already been a daily deal so 25% is as good as it will get now.

Last of all, making him a kit might be cool. I put together this for a redditor last year. You can probably make a better one than me - I'll admit I cheaped out a little. Get a box or a backpack (you can cheap out on the backpack) and fill it up with things like a flashlight, a med kit (bandaids, bandages, surgical scissors, sports tape etc. things you can buy from a pharmacy), water purification tablets (this especially adds to it IMO), food (canned, power bars or, if you want to go the extra mile, MREs), thick army socks, a compass, etc. Basically just shit you'd take with you if you were going camping. Make it as compact/lightweight as possible.

Well, fuck, that turned out to be a lot longer than I intended. Anyway, good luck.

EDIT: Oh yeah, one more thing. What I did for that same redditor last year was that I wrote a survival plan for him. Basically, if you get him that Max Brooks Survival Guide, one of the things they suggest is hiding out in a prison (fortification, food, water, exercise yard, accommodation, weapons, remote etc.) - what I did was that I researched prisons in the walkable/bikable vicinity of his house and I mapped out routes to them from his house on a map I printed of his house from google maps.

Yeah, Interface Carpets have done incredible things. Ray Anderson the owner of Interface did a great TED talk where he explains their journey. You can find other cases along this vein in the book Cradle to Cradle. They give me faith that business and manufacturing can positively contribute to sustainability if they choose to.

It's out of print, but if you have a Kindle look out for John Birmingham's Leviathan. It's probably the best popular general history of Sydney.

Hey there, recent arch-graduate here!

I'd be pretty interested in all of these at the prices listed; always looking to expand my archi-library!

Well... apart from 'Towards a New Architecture' which naturally I already own (unless of course it is specifically this edition: which as far as I am concerned is the definitive translation/commentary and would always borrow from the library rather than using my own other edition when I needed it lol).

I could do pickup in the north shore or city also. PM me and we can work out some details :D

Judgment Under Uncertainty: Heuristics and Biases

He just put out a book last year called Thinking, Fast and Slow that summarises this and all the work he has done since, but in a Gladwell-ish way. It’s pretty interesting.

Found this great book because of the /r/IAmA thing by Adam Mansbach.

Tempted to order a case of them for all the new and expecting parents at work, but not sure if it's totally appropriate. (There must've been a LOT of bonking going on 5-15 months ago, so many folks I know and work with are having babies)

sort of! I am not being very secretive here - Vanessa is actually my name. Possibly because of the butterflies but more likely

Abandon women; and instead treat yourself and a bro(mance) to:

It can be insidious in that way. My partner urged me to read a favourite book of hers called 'lonely', it was sobering and I'd recommend it to anyone with experience being lonely.

u/SpiritKarmicDragon · 5 pointsr/sydney

Get one. Works wonders.

Edit: It's actually not a terrible read if you ignore the enochian key section.

u/itbefoxy · 1 pointr/sydney

There is the newer 2016 one but its not as nice as that one :/

> I love that being an adult who gives 0 fucks means I can say "I was having a shit" and then they're the embarrassed ones not me

That's pretty much how I got over it. Maybe read him this book?
