Halloween is coming up so just in case this is the time of a zombie apocalypse I thought I’d share my tips on surviving…
I do love a good zombie film, and Im fairly certain that at some point there will be a zombie apocalypse. My theory is that you can categorise people into three groups – Fighters, Hiders and Suiciders…
The group of folk who are the heroes. They will fight the zombies off, plan an attack, group people together and go all Rambo on the zombies ass. They’ll be fighting with guns, knives, sticks, records and everything that comes to hand.
They board up the windows, lock all the doors and keep quiet. They will wait out the zombie attack. They are the organised ones who have a LOT of tinned food and bottled water, maybe even an Anderson shelter or a panic room and a good dose of paranoia.
The folk who give up all hope. Who would rather take their own lives than risk being taken by a zombie. Usually the old or weak who feel they can’t fight or hide.
The best way to survive is probably a mix of Fighters and Hiders… You will need to band together a group with the best possible skills. You need to eat, drink and survive. If you have organised hiders on side, they will have a Disaster Kit already.
The fighters are going to need some weapons, so having people in your group who have some weaponry skills would be awesome… If not, go for the Shaun of The Dead weapon list by Shadowness.
I love this Science of surviving a Zombie Attack… Sorry, zombie is not politically correct, its Consciousness Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (CDHD)
The University of Florida is my kinda place, they have a Zombie Attack Plan and survival guide. You can read the whole (six page!) document here.
So people, get prepared. The zombies are coming…
