Do You Think There's Going To Be A Zombie Apocalypse?

SpringcurlSpringcurl Posts: 8,002Registered Users
My sister and I are pretty convinced there will be. You know, there will be some mistake in a lab somewhere and the zombies will be created and we'll have to run into the woods and live off the land.


I think I could survive, but only if I were with family. My sister's husband is a state trooper and he's really good with guns. My best friend is great at building things, so that's important. I can make something tasty out of gross stuff, so I'd be helpful.


Do you think there will be a zombie apocalypse? Could you survive?

    You've never thought about this?

    Over Christmas my sister mentioned a zombie apocalypse and my daughter's boyfriend immediately nodded and admitted that he'd thought of it, too.

    I think people are afraid to admit to other people that they think it's possible. but I think the zombies are coming.:laughing7:

    No, I don't think it's possible, but to entertain this case scenerio, not so sure I would survive. I guess if I happen to be lucky (in the right place at the right time), I would be okay.
    We're more likely to be invaded by space aliens, and I do not believe that is going to happen either.
    I guess that leaves us with the real possible dangers out there...other people, environmental/weather, disease, etc. ...but that's not near as interesting.

    I hadn't thought of this happening until I saw this thread. If they are as slow moving and easy to kill as they appear to be in movies then I think I could survive.

    It would certainly stimulate the economy if there was a zombie apocalypse:

    - Someone would have to bury all their rotten corpses.
    - New jobs would be created for zombie removal everywhere.
    - There would be more insurance claims for people who hit a zombie while driving to work.

    On the other hand, if the zombies could be trained they might actually steal our jobs.

    It's ponderous.

    If movies are correct (again, entertaining this), they aren't all that easy to kill. And although they walk slowly, they magically catch up with you.

    I'm thinking I would probably join the zombies, although as a vegetarian, that could pose some problems. And I'm not sure what role my dogs would play.....would there be zombie dogs? Anyway, I think I'd make a better zombie than survivor, since I hate camping.

    But what do zombies do when they're not searching for brains to eat? Would I get to read and write and watch "Robot Chicken?" And what about zombie hairstyles? Would I be able to maintain my curls?

    Really, I think the thing to consider is which method of existence provides for a better lifestyle: zombie or human? It may sound matter of fact, but these are tough times. A girl has to make a choice.

    I don't know if I could survive on my own. I don't own a gun and I've never been much of a fighter. My husband, on the other hand, is MacGuyver. He's always making useful things out of what I consider to be trash. I can see him fashioning a weapon out of old string and a couple of paper clips.
    When are women going to face the fact that they don’t know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?

    So funny you posted this--I just saw the coolest video yesterday about a zombie apocalypse. It's by Metallica, and the song is called "All Nightmare Long."

    http://www.metallica.com/Media/Video/misc_video.asp?id=448
    (click on the first video)

    To answer the question: in the event of a zombie apocalypse, I think I'd be pretty useless.

    I think I could survive. Zombies are really slow, and stupid. At least the ones in the movies are! :confused1:
  • cymprenicympreni Posts: 9,609Registered Users Curl Neophyte
    Depends on the type of zombies. In at least one movie, Japanese zombies are lightning fast and know martial arts and they know how to use guns. We'd all be doomed!

    Look up the movie Versus on youtube, there are a lot of the fight scenes there. Since it is a zombie fight scene, I think the graphic warning should be a given.
  • hayseedladyhayseedlady Posts: 646Registered Users
    Things like this are why I live in Iowa. I'm pretty sure the redneck zombies would be super easy to kill. Plus every house has at least 5 guns and ammo so one wouldn't run out, like they do in the movies. Living off the land would be very easy to do, there is a lot of open land.

    So, no one but me wants to join the winning team? I'm talking numbers, people. Sheer zombie force.

    Admit it. You know you want to stop being human. No job! No cooking! No taxes!

    My husband got it for the holidays. I've been not so patiently waiting for him to finish it so I can read it. He's a slow reader.

    I've never thought about this outside of movies. I'd probably be toast, unless I was around some of my more industrious friends and family.
    "And politically correct is the worst term, not just because it’s dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that it’s about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
    Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."

    I keep telling DH that if he really loves me... . he'll let me eat his brains. I love that part. (Safe for work) One of my all time favorite movies. I'll join ya, I'll radio for more paramedics.

    This is the really import part - having someone with you who knows what to do. Having a bad-ass for a sidekick is crucial. Someone like Uma Thurman from the "Kill Bill" movies. If you have a bad-ass sidekick and a cool background song that's playing while you and Uma chop zombies in half (y'know, something like "Violet" by Hole. Cleaving a zombie in half just as Courtney Love screams out, "You should learn how to say NO!!" is all part of the aura), then that's half the zombie-battle won. :tongue3:

    You don't need a gun either. Sean of the Dead offed one just by tossing a vinyl LP into it's head. You just need to sever the brain somehow, and since they are so slow it shouldn't be that difficult to get the hang of severing zombie brains.

    A kick ass sidekick is always a good idea.

    I guess you two never saw 28 Days/ Weeks Later, eh? Those zombies were truly a force to be reckoned with...

    I don't think I'd last very long if there were a zombie apocalypse. I'd be able to make it for a while if I was with my husband, but once the food started to run out he'd probably defect to their side.

    That's a possibility too. While the zombies are busy picking off the weak links in your group, you can make a quick get-away.

    Which brings up another good point - make sure you're wearing comfortable clothes and good athletic sneakers. A zombie apocolypse is no time to get all "Stacy and Clinton" if you want to survive.
