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.
