Let’s Talk Zombie Apocalypse

Not too long ago, I was fortunate enough to spend time with my oldest sister. Like all my family, she is a very unique individual with a wonderfully twisted sense of humor and skewed world-view.  It just so happens that this sister is a professor at a university and oversees a couple handfuls of graduate students who help teach the general chemistry labs. While we were talking she mentioned a conversation she’d walked into between her grad students. Not wanting to exclude her, they asked her what the best gun to have in the Zombie apocalypse.

I said, “That was a stupid question.”

She was happy I agreed.

Then I exlained. “Everyone knows you don’t want a gun. They run out of bullets quickly and make noise alerting other nearby zombies to your presence.”

Apparently, she thought the grad students should have been discussing chemistry.

“Sure, they should. They would have access to lots of bomb making chemicals. With a little engineering, they could delay the boom until they were far enough away, killing some  and drawing away other zombies. A win-win situation.”

Um, this would be about when I realized she thought the whole talk of the zombie apolcalypse was nonsense.

I then explained about the types of bacteria, including man’s best friend’s friend, Rabies, that could induce a hunger for human flesh in a crazy way state.

“Would a gun bring them down?” she asked.

The zombie apocalpyse is spreading. One brain at a time:-)

So, in honor of that conversation and because everyday Jane and John Does are first responders in an emergency, I’m giving away one of my copies of How to Survive the end of the World as We Know it.

Leave a comment about your plan to survive the coming zombie apocalypse by Memorial Day (May 27th) to be entered. And giving how quickly the plague will spread, I’ll ship overseas too.

    First find a huge underground cave complex because all the nuclear reactors are going to go into meltdown once all the operators turn zombies and the cooling pumps shut down. Make sure the complex has running water so you can provide hydroelectric power and there is enough room for growing food and taking care of food animals. Next gather as many people as you can but look especially for those with good skill sets to assist in mankind making a comeback. (yes Linda, you have two skillsets that make you desirable, scientist and writer and I’m sure you have many more skills to add to it) Hey, wait a minute, this all sounds familiar doesn’t it???

    • Never heard of it. But with such a wild imagination you should be a writer:-)

      Actually, you left out that I can sew clothes. When I told my critique partners they looked at me as if I’d sprouted another head. I didn’t (but I had to check)

        I told Beth what you said and she just looked at me and told me not to get any ideas. I don’t use the one I was born with so what good would another do me? Now she just told me that the one head I do use has a one track mind?

      • So you need a gandy dancer to lay more tracks?

    With my record, I probably wouldnt hear about it until I was surrounded. Like dan, I would gather as many people as I could but they all would be slow and feeble. My destraction while I get away.

  3. Jill James says:

    Yeah! Now I’ll have an excuse to practice the crossbow! I would gather weapons and people I want to save from the zombies. Everyone else is on their own.

    So you need a gandy dancer to lay more tracks? Nah, I can lay my own tracks, it’s just gotta be one at a time.
