Stay back. I may be contagious.

I hate to ever encourage shaving, but when the apocalypse (zombie or otherwise) finally happens and you try to wear a gasmask while bearded, it's not going to work.

Let's just hope the apocalypse doesn't come before March. I don't care what the circumstance is. Shaving equals shaming regardless of it being to shield one's self from impending doom

That's true. Ventilators won't work if we're bearded. But it's also hard to buy razors in a zombie apocalypse, too.

I am the winner!

TYPE: Противогаз ПБФ
TRANSLATION: Gas Mask PBF
ALIASES: n/a
DATE: c. 1970s
FREQUENCY: Uncommon
USAGE: USSR, Warsaw Pact Countries
FUNCTION: Military
LMàG REFERENCE CODE: RU-033

NOTES: The PBF is a special mask most likely used by border troops and other units that needed a light weight gas mask that offered freedom from the typical heavy rubber tube and filter. Two oval shaped filter elements (designated ЕО-19Э) were housed in bilateral cheek pockets, similar to the US M17 series. The mask also featured a speech diaphragm and an exhale valve on the front. Like most Soviet masks from the cold war era, the PBF was made in both gray and black rubber.

WANT. This is inspiring me to paint.... but I won't be able to touch any art supplies for another 5 hours. By that time, the feeling would have passed. Oh well. This is Fav'd anyhow.

Someone needs to reinvent gasmasks to not be so scary looking. Also, the peripheral view from inside is shot.

Although painful, I believe that duct tape will solve this issue.

ThatGuy says:
A gas mask during the apocolypse will likely just keep you alive to see the end, and still not survive it. I don't need to see all of that. I'm going to keep growing.
