Eh whole blood is still given in cases where rapid blood volume loss occurs. Most of the time it's just packed RBCs or plasma, but in cases of severe anemia and hypovolemia whole blood transfusions are still done.

That reminded me of a soldier taken to us during an encounter in Basilan. We did a double, rapid infusion of PNSS 3L in his arm and the other in his feet (his arm was broken) while waiting for the blood. Our NCs have hard time locating arteries back then...

Anyway... thanks!!!

I can't imagine 3L rapid infusion of PNSS being good in the long run... that's just putting water and salt in your system. I guess you really wouldn't have a choice in a provincial government hospital.

Oops the 3rd was put to KVO..., its a military hospital by the way. He was nearly unconscious at that time and blood is not that rapidly available in emergency like that, well, he survived though. His other mate was shot in the cheeks and its squirting. After stabilizing, we transferred them for surgery in another hospital.

Why do some of my .mp3 songs replace their own thumbnail with the thumbnail of another song.

Our Song - Taylor Swift has from Disturbed's Asylum album cover.

And all my songs by Hitomi Takahashi has Daft Punk's Alive album cover. >_O I changed it with mp3tag editor but it changes back to wtf.

My Asylum and Alive album are directly extracted from the CD I bought from store, not sure if that makes a diff.

I can imagine a friend scouring my playlist and giving me weird looks if they see the Taylor Swift song with Disturbed cover.

How long would it take me to I reach Rome if I walk from starting Beijing passing to Bangladesh, ,India, Iraq, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Morocco, Spain, France then Italy? Why? Just checking for the accuracy of my plan novel which includes traveling such distance. Please consider rest and sleep as well....

Depends on the pace of the walker. I'm 5'8'' and my cruising pace is about 5km/hr. I have taken hikes between 20-30km before, and it has been quite a consistent pace.

Assuming 06am - 12pm walk, lunch for 1 hr, then another 6hrs walk till dinner, that's about 12 hours of walking per day. At my pace, that would be 60km per day. Use Google to get a rough estimation of the distance you will need to cover, and divide by the daily pace.

Cheers.

Let's assume strictly straight paths between capital cities? Note: numbers will have ',' separating thousands and '.' for decimal. Note 2: Ignoring significant digits.

Distances (by air): http://www.geobytes.com/citydistance.htm
Beijing, China to Dhaka, Bangladesh: 3028 km
Dhaka, Bangladesh to New Delhi, India: 1425 km
New Delhi, India to Baghdad, Iraq: 3162 km
Baghdad, Iraq to Cairo, Egypt: 1296 km
Cairo, Egypt to Tripoli, Libya: 1741 km
Tripoli, Libya to Tunis, Tunisia: 514 km
Tunis, Tunisia to Rabat, Morocco: 1571 km
Rabat, Morocco to Madrid, Spain: 761 km
Madrid, Spain to Paris, France: 1054 km
Paris, France to Rome, Italy: 1106 km
Total distance = 15,658 km

Average walking speed is about 5 km/h.

That leaves a walking time of 3131.6 hours, which approximates to 130.483 days of straight walking.

Let's assume 12 hours of walking per day everyday, leaving 12 hours to do whatever. Then, it would take about 260.967 days.

My math should be correct. But distances may be wrong. Distances may vary based on where in each country you visit and how straight a path you take. Also, you'll be passing through the Himalayas.

Anyways, to find how many days a journey will take, simply take ((total distance)/(speed of travel))/(time per day spent traveling), and remember units are important.

@Skane and Dragon4dudes - I was imagining how long for a huge army (2 million) to reach Rome if they start to march from Beijing.

How about on horseback? From Russia, Greece, Iraq then Beijing?

Thanks!!!

First of all, you can multiply those distances dragon4dudes posted at least by 1 due to geography of the areas in between. I'd bet that the completely direct route is not an option. Second the going somewhere midway through Pakistan gets really rough. It's pretty barren from there all the way to Morocco, apart of a few bits of course. So I'd halve the average walking pace as well. Furthermore I doubt that you'd actually be able or willing to gather a cavalry of 2 million, thus you're left with the pace of the infantry. As a realistic guestimate I'd say it'd take somewhere around 3 years and if you'd have 2 million men on departure, you'd have probably somewhere around 300000 on arrival.

Yeah, I agree, the himalayans, alps and deserts through the journey are going to make this much longer. Not to mention soldiers don't sleep on some random rock and wake up and continue going. They take time to load/unload food and have to march together and not randomly straggle. I have no evidence at all but for military, they could be walking ~18 hours a day. Most war diaries talk about the lack of sleep and endless travelling before dawn and after set.

4kmph / 2.5mph is my guess for armoured soldiers.

The only armies I can think of with such an awkward marching plan would occur in the Risk world.

Same assumptions as before, straight path, capital to capital, 12 hours per day.

Horses have 4 different gaits: walk (6.4 km/h), trot (13 km/h), canter (16-27 km/h), gallop (40-48 km/h)

(days are for 12 hours of travel per day at constant speed)
Horseback walk: 2446.56 hours, 203.88 days
Trot: 1204.46 hours, 100.37 days
Canter: 579.93 - 978.625 hours, 48.33 - 81.55 days
Gallop: 326.21 - 391.45 hours, 27.18 - 32.62 days

Distances (by air):
Moscow, Russia to Athens, Greece: 2231 km
Athens, Greece to Baghdad, Iraq: 1933 km
Baghdad, Iraq to Beijing, China: 6300 km
Total Distance: 10,464 km

(days are for 12 hours of travel per day at constant speed)
Human walking: 2,092.8 hours, 174.4 days
Horse walking: 136.25 hours, 136.35 days
Trot: 804.92 hours, 67.08 days
Canter: 387.56 - 654 hours, 32.30 - 54.5 days
Gallop: 218 - 261.6 hours, 18.67 - 21.8 days


@escimo
Thanks for an estimation factor. You could simply multiply the time by 1.5 and that would give you the same result without having redo all that division (assuming you multiplied the whole distance bye 1.5).

They have supply ships that drop supplies around Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Iraq so I assumed the soldiers will carry a bit lsser even weapons ( they got a train of supply wagons, siege equipments etc.)

Around 300000 cavarly, mostly, Mongolian and Arabian horses to be exact.

My story originally runs a 10 year primarily because of the travel issue but you save me at least 1/3 of the needed years. Thanks again.

It's nice for handling a huge stack of songs, that you don't have the time to sort yourself.
