What Would YOU Do During The Zombie Apocalypse?

Get A Kit,    Make A Plan, Be Prepared. emergency.cdc.gov

 

I don’t know if this keeps you awake at night, restlessly tossing and turning, but I am sometimes kept awake at night, fretting about what I would do during the zombie apocalypse.  You know it’s coming.  With all of the preservatives in our food, chemicals in our water, and radiation floating around in our air, sooner or later some weird mutant strain of nasty is going to make the dead rise again.  Seriously.  Look at how long a Twinkie will last in your pantry – at least 50 years, and that spongy snack is still soft and moist.  Think of what that yellow cake does to your body after you ingest it!

The trusty, forward thinking Centers for Disease Control and Prevention employees have been hard at work planning for the zombie apocalypse.  Perfect timing, since the world is going to end tomorrow.  Hop on over to this informative article, and prep that emergency kit so that you have it at hand when you need it the most.  I am puzzled that there is no mention of flame throwers, axes, or baseball bats, but perhaps the CDC does not want to encourage acts of aggression against marauding zombies by a bunch of newbies, but it’s going to be every man for himself,  so make sure you do stock up on torches, fuels to keep the flames burning, and plenty of blunt-edged weapons.

If all else fails, head to the nearest zombie-proof safe house, and hope that the current occupants admit you.  And that they haven’t succumbed to the zombie plague….

    I can’t believe there’s a zombie-proof house!

    My friend and I had this conversation a few weeks ago. He and his little sister concluded that I’d die pretty quickly; I said that I’d go find him or two of his other friends for protection and zombie-fighting expertise. Unfortunately, they’re at college in either Kentucky, North Carolina, or Florida, so the zombie apocalypse will have to happen over a break…

    That house is insane! When I saw all the glass I thought it didn’t look that safe but then I scrolled down. That’s a pretty crazy house. I was noting yesterday that my house has way too many windows and would be vulnerable to a zombie attack. And then I started worrying about my dog since he wouldn’t be let onto a plane in case a quick evac was announced (I live on an island).

    I’m not prepared at all and I’m not sure I could handle the zombie apocalypse. I’m reading an apocalyptic book right now and am seeing how much of a wimp I would be in that scenario (and that’s if alien plants took over the world, imagine hoards of the brain eating walking dead coming after me?!)

    Oh, I forgot the world was supposed to end tomorrow! *slaps forehead* I also forgot about Zombie Awareness month. ;)

    Wow… a zombie-proof house. Not that all those bars and concrete buildings helped much in 28 Days Later or I am Legend. I guess my family would be heading to my crazy great-uncle’s bomb shelter (He built it. In his backyard. Not during the Cold War. Recently. Yeah.)

    LOL, Julie… I’m perfectly prepared should we be overtaken by Zombies! Living out in the woods like we do, we have lots of weapons (yes, even a crossbow) We have a 3 story house if you include our walk-out basement and there’s plenty of advantage points and hidey holes!
    We have plenty of food and water, the only problem lies in the fact that our home is entirely windows! We have lots of wood, we own a Forestry company and an Electrical company so we have plenty of wood (and a really nice woodstove and a really nice generator.
    We’d be okay for awhile, I suspect. Keeping the walkout windows covered would be our first priority, they wouldn’t be able to get to the others without coming up the deck steps on one of two sides and even then, there’s only a few windows they could actually get at…
    Yep, Julie, Like you, I’ve given it a lot of thought! Those Zombies ain’t gettin’ me or mine without a fight and I’m most definitely not leaving my home!
    TeeHee, poor zombies!
    Kristi’s Zombie Attack!
