    The Zombie Apocalypse

    So... I've heard a lot of people in my life say that they have plans for the Zombie apocalypse. You know, that hypothetical situation that we all kind of almost hope for because we'd be allowed to carry swords and kill things and none of us think we'd be the ones to die because we'd be so badass.

    So. Just curious, but...

    What will YOU do when the Zombie Apocalypse is upon us?

    DUN DUN DUH DUUUUNNN!

    Hrm.

    Well I live on an island, literally, so I guess the first thing I'd do is organize a defense force, because of course I'm the *only* one that knows what to do (never mind I've never been in the military or ever had to fight large masses to save my worthless skin).

    so, um, yeah. set up island defenses. We've enough wilderness and farmland to support about half the population, so we'd sacrifice the rich to appease the zombies for a little while. and then... um. just sort of hunker down and kill anything that looked even remotely like a zombie

    Meanwhile, I'd set about setting up my island kingdom...

    Um, anyway...

    I have to deal with zombies right now on a day to day basis, only I don't get to use swords on them. So ya, I can't wait for the day when weapons are finally legalised in the struggle. Sure it would be a blast.

    There's an industrial estate about a mile from my house.

    I'm going to go there with my kit bag, which is already ready by the door at all times. It contains basic survival gear, includes water, army ration packs, a foldable shovel, small hammer, nails, a gas mask, matches, 2 lighters, a small can of fuel, 2 pairs of black socks, a first aid kit containing (as well as other things) a sewing kit, a small bottle of whiskey, surgical spirit...I also have a flashlight, and a glock.

    The glock is not real, but airsoft. Trust me though, you point it at somebodies face and cock it, and it's as good as real.

    Oddly enough I had this talk with my mom a little while ago. You NEED to have a zombie plan. It's just that simple.

    Right now it'd be steal a car and drive (badly) to the cabin. Or maybe go to Newfoundland. I can imagine Newfoundland being safe for some reason. lol.

    Anyone seen that Red vs. Blue episode?

    Set myself on fire. I mean, coffee breath is bad enough, but having a bunch of rotting corpses screaming they want my brains in my face? Just too much too deal with man.

    I will be the guy who, after giving an uplifting and unifying speech, gets pulled out of the barred up window and torn apart/eaten alive by the aforementioned zombies.

    my wife will be the one lady, that comes out to get the paper in the morning, holding a cup of coffee (she doesnt really drink coffee, but on this particular morning she is holding and sipping on a cup of coffee) and gets tackled by two or three fast moving zombies.

    Doesnt look good for me guys....doesnt look good.

    At least you are, or at least your wife is in the intro. So with a little bit of luck, you two could be the first billed in the cast

    I don't know here I'd go, but I'd definately bring THIS along. It's sharp, it's big, and I've killed a chicken with it!

    Well, I'll be combining boy scout skills with what I've read in the Zombie Survival Guide. If its just a few zombies it will be easy, if its a full on apacolypse with crowds of them arround the world then we're screwed.

    If its 1 city (Like LA) I hope the govt evacuates the non-zombies before nuking the place. If that is the plan then the main course of action would be to take out your stairs (zombies can't climb) and replace them with a rope ladder, stock up on supplies and put in a generator, and bring in others. Fighting off the zombies is a last resort in this situation. Find a way onto the roof and paint a message there that is large enough to be seen by helicopters.

    I don't know if anyone's read this book? It's hilarious and useful (although there's nothing funny about a looming zombie invasion!):

    Top 10 Lessons for Surviving a Zombie Attack

    1. Organize before they rise!
    2. They feel no fear, why should you?
    3. Use your head: cut off theirs.
    4. Blades donít need reloading.
    5. Ideal protection = tight clothes, short hair.
    6. Get up the staircase, then destroy it.
    7. Get out of the car, get onto the bike.
    8. Keep moving, keep low, keep quiet, keep alert!
    9. No place is safe, only safer.
    10. The zombie may be gone, but the threat lives on.

    Well, if you can't beat 'em, then join 'em. I look forward to feasting on the survivors' entrails and brain matter.

    Speaking of zombies eating, for you sacrilegious types, try googling "Zombie Last Supper." I'm sure you'll get a kick out of it...

    I think before we start jumping to conclusions we should make sure we're talking about the same thing. Now do you guys mean it's a zombie outbreak (meaning voodoo, undead, and all that) or do you mean an outbreak caused by some virus which causes "zombie-like" behavior? Our survival could possibly hinge on this fact alone due to the different ways in which one has to deal with these two very different situations.

    I say if it lurches, and has a less than rosy pallor, kill it.

    Why take a chance?

    Good call. I guess it'd be quarantine for one situation , killing spree for the other

    I think my brother after his chemo treatment would be against that

    I live in the New Jersey metro corridor, which equals more zombies per square foot than just about anywhere else. Way I see it, the only ones more porked than me are the poor schmoes trying to get out of Manhattan.

    If you compare zombies from such zombie documentary films like 28 days later to the zombies in the documentaries of the 70s', you see a huge differnce in behavior. If, nay; WHEN the zombie outbreak comes, I really hope we get the slow ones.
