Zombie Apocalypse Preperations...
Ok, you and I know there will never be a Zombie Apocalypse.
Right?
But here are the virtues of being prepared:
1. You are prepared for the bird flu, swine flu, or any other flu.
2. You are prepared to hunker down for an extended period of time including food, water and sanitization.
3. You are prepared to LOCK DOWN your shit so your dumbass neighbors can't get into your home, and you are prepared to greatly discourage such behavior.

So watch out for Zombie Pigs walking down your streets.

I don't know, I saw a woman talking about it on a college campus, just the day before yesterday. She sounded pretty serious.

Your point is good, but I'm not prepared to dismiss the threat of zombies just yet.

"Solanum is described as working by traveling through the bloodstream from the point of entry to the brain, where the virus replicates in the cells of the frontal lobe, thus turning the frontal lobe into an entirely new organ that does not need food, water, or even air to survive; it can be described as a completely self-sufficient organism."

Solanum may be fictional... it may NOT be... but it is feasible.

Well, thanks to ET, I've found out how to win in the aquatic zombie defense - I just need to obtain a man with the correct number of limbs.

Sooo... thanks for the heads up on how to handle the "Pig Zombies".

Re: Zombie Apocalypse Preperations...
The point of my post....

What other Horror, Terror, Mystery,... Genre deals directly with the possibility of you having to hunker down and keep you and your safe, fed and clean?

I am a HUGE Zombie Fiction fan, but many of the movies, and books could substitute zombies for the general public who have not prepared for the worst.

>>Works great... until you get a zombie dogpile. When that happens, the 3 story house would collapse from the weight of thousands of zombies.

Actually, of all land based structures... a prison works the best... fences... concrete construction... restricted access.. full kitchen... electricity... water.. weapons...

Prison +1 on that idea.
Just gotta get rid of the "locals".

I have only 2 windows that are accessible from the front of the house. Everything is behind a Iron Fence, surrounded by a 7' to 11' wood fence. Soooo, hopefully I can board up those and call it good.

Re: Zombie Apocalypse Preperations...
I always thought the zombie movies were just metaphors for a desperate, greedy, hopeless segment of society that didn't prepare for "doom" and were after those that did. The recent version of Dawn Of The Dead was a perfect portrayal of that....all the zombies congregate at the mall (their consumer society instincts still exist), they can now run too (making them more human like).

Now maybe if the SHTF and those that were unprepared are suddenly cast into what would be an unbelievable, nightmare scenerio, to those that did prepare it would feel like they were mindless, blood-thirsty zombies coming for your stuff. The only difference is you wouldn't have to just shoot them in the head.

Luckly a zombie most likely wont be conscious enough to light a match. Zombie dogpile? I dont think that kind of dog piling would actually be possible with a zombie, you are assuming they wouldn't move and would let another zombie climb them.

Re: Zombie Apocalypse Preperations...
Oh I have ladders and a torch... I can take a section of the fence down in a few minutes.

AND I have a below ground bunker,,,, seriously!
So if all else failed, we could lock ourselves in.
