Zombie apocalypse is always a fascinating (albeit fictional) subject. Lifehacker rehashes some of its best tips to survive a zombie onslaught for a list of "top ten" tips.

Quote
Over the years, we've shared a ton of tips for keeping yourself safe and healthy during an emergency. Here are some of our favorite clever survival tricks.

Okay, so these hacks aren't exclusive to zombie-related emergencies, but let's be honest: it's the one disaster we all know is inevitable. Regardless of the emergency at hand, these tips can keep you alive when disaster strikes.

I've got an abbreviated manual of my own. It's on a 3x5 card.

It says:

Having an ok plan plus a FN SCAR-H/Mk.17-CQC:

+OK PLAN

is an  infinitely better than having a brilliant plan
        
        and no FN SCAR-H/Mk.17-CQC!

A good friend of mine suggests this as an alternative:

I do, at least you always know where you stand with a zombie.

Unlike the current human population of this planet, all a zombie wants to do is rip your head off and eat you.

I've never thought that a chainsaw is a good choice, considering the amount of blood you'd end up with over you, you stand a good chance of contracting the zombification virus....plus 2-stroke engines have an annoying habit of not firing up just when you need them most.

I think a Atchisson Assault Shotgun with 32 round rotary mags would be a better choice.



Also, never underestimate the effect of a well made molotov.

This is a booking photo (I swiped off a news site) of a woman that attacked a guy in Datona Beach with a molotov cocktail.



I can't look at it without laughing (for an hour). Talk about the ultimate poster-child for flat out nutz.

That photo just screams "They are coming, and they are not pleased, What has been seen, cannot be unseen"

Some of my favorite zombie quotes:

 "They're coming to get you Barbara!"
    - Johnny, Night of the Living Dead (1968)

 "I don't know what's happening to me. I'm not alive. I'm not dead. I'm just...I'm just so lonely."
    - Julie, Return of the Living Dead 3 (1993)

 "If we hole up I want to be somewhere familiar, I want to know where the exits are, and I want to be allowed to smoke."
    - Ed, Shaun of the Dead (2004)

 "Every dead body that is not exterminated becomes one of them. It gets up and kills. The people it kills get up and kill."
    - Doctor on newscast, Dawn of the Dead (1978)

Night of the Living Dead- Original - 1968:

Johnny (in a creepy voice):  They're coming to get you, Barbara!
Barbara:     Stop it! You're ignorant!
Johnny:     They're coming for you, Barbara!
Barbara:     Stop it! You're acting like a child!
Johnny:     They're coming for you!
[Points to the cemetery zombie]
Johnny:     Look, there comes one of them now!
Barbara:    He'll hear you!
Johnny:     Here he comes now! I'm getting out of here!

(Of course immediately after Johnny's last line there, he utters his REAL last line, which was something like, "Aaaarrrghhhh". Ah, the good old days of cinema!)

This hilarious movie has too many quotes to list and it would probably spoil the enjoyment, but this is my favorite:

“Dude, your mom just ate her own eye.”

Except CH where you can own a gun without special magic

A little off the topic of the undead, but I was under the impression that in Switzerland you had to get a special exemption to *not* own a gun.

Cool!  Good to know I'll get some shooting practice in where I'm living  Grin

They seem to have missed listing a gunsmith in my area though.......oh well, the less people who know about him, the more ammo for me!

When I was a kid, you could buy guns at the local K-Mart.

Its amazing how many fellow Doconians have zombie apocalypse plans!  Myself, I have a detailed plan of how to secure the huge indoor market thats very close to my home, and contains enough supplies to last for quite awhile in such a situation, and very very easy to secure.  That, and the gun shop in the adjacent town...that will come in handy tongue

You've just made yourself a neon hi-vis target to every gun-toting, kill-happy, "I want what you've got!" freak.

I prefer stealthy......of course a Strykerw would help.

This is my Zombie Apocalypse weapon of choice.




I have no plans on becoming zombie food or infected, and thereby attacking my family, friends, or neighbors. Since attempting to survive a zombie apocalypse would be a futile endeavor, it only makes sense to have some control over how you die. The gun holds a single bullet, which is all I would need to ensure that I won't jeopardize the survival of the dummies that think they actually have a chance.
