    Here's something from the mainstream (left) media.

    Surving Zombie Attack link
    The leftists have disarmed themselves. I don't know if there's a single gunstore left in San Francisco. There were some in the old days, but they were driven out. In the wake of the anti-gun hysteria, the cabbage eating bunny loving tree huggers have also driven numerous Bay Area gunstores out of business. Now they disarmed and must turn to their police or the few who have guns for protection.

    Gary, I take offense to your reference to "bunny lovers."

    Personally, I love rabbits.







    They make a delicious stew.

    So long as Correia doesn't come after me. I love those "fuzzy bunnies" that he peddles. :p

    I think the fact that Hitlery is a front runner politician is proof there are zombies out there already.

    I don't care what anyone says, that is great advice.

    Oh, I think it is just wonderful, how some Son-In-Laws tote their Mother-In-Laws out for hikes in the woods to see Nature, like Bears, Pumas, Cougars...

    Ain't that the truth

    People who live in Kansas should read that never know when a rouge wave could hit. :D

    If a rogue wave hits Kansas we have much bigger problems.

    Of course all talk of zombies aside the movies 28 days later/28 weeks later are good fodder for thought. The infected in those movies still have full mobility and cognition all directed at a murderous intent. While the speed of infection is pure fiction the threat is real enough. We know there are diseases whose pathology affects the central nervous system, e.g. rabies, that cause murderous aggression if left unchecked. what happens if a mutation creates an airborne strain?

    The danger isn't any more elevated than it was yesterday, last year or throughout all of recorded history, but it is real enough. What about bird flu? To put things in comparison, the 1918 influenza epidemic had a mortality rate of 2.6% and it just about shut down the U.S. economy. The H5N1 strain has a mortality rate of 62%. If an airborne strain develops the economy is going to flatline. Are you prepared? Of course not. Nobody can adequately prepare for something like that. Can you make preparations that give you an edge in surviving? Yes.

    It doesn't matter what your inspiration is, what matters is who is left standing when it is all sorted out.

    Everyone knows in all honesty zombies are fake,(It's fun talking though) However that is (the "28 day's later" scenario) possible who knows what some of these labs are cooking up, and seeing the animal rights people in the past do raids that's plausible too.

    The only real reason not to worry is here in the US we have the means to shoot back. Ask me if you want more specifics, I think about this stuff when I am bored.

    We all know zombies are nothing new. They were around back in the '40s as evidenced by this clip.

    Its been around for a long time and has been posted before, but the classics never go out of style.

    i'd LOVE to see how they came up with this. reminds me of that old saying "76.571% of statistics are made up on the spot."

    I run a pretty slow quarter-mile, but I'm betting you're not outrunning anybody with a round through your knee. :evil:

    Oh, man, that was totally unHighRoad-esque, wasn't it? :evil:

    Jerkface,

    I just watched "Serenity" again last night and thought the same thing. Reavers = Zombies in space ships.

    Wow, this is terrible advice, which is why I am glad they are handing it out the silly liberals. "Go to the mall" indeed:p I am fully prepared for the initial onslaught, I have a plan, I have a bag in my car just waiting for the day. I know it probably makes me crazy to take this stuff seriously, but I know that when the day does come, I will be prepared, and I will laugh my ass off at all of the "anti 2a-ers trying to reason with" whatever we get infested with. We'll see how that "no need to protect yourself" mentality works out. It's not necessarily going to be zombies, but it will be something.

    If you actually want some good advice on this (entertainment purposes or not) look up Max Brooks' "Zombie Survival Guide". I give them to everyone for christmas, and the scariest book I ever read is "World War Z". If you wanna know how it really turns out, do yourself a favor and pick that up.

    i like how he sighted Shaun of the dead. love that movie "hit 'em on the head, that seems to work."

    also, one must be prepared for both the slow dumb zombies ("ooohhhhhhhhhh") and the speedy ones (a la resident evil and, if we're counting Reavers, Serinity)
    of course with the speedy ones, it helps to have a gov. made super soilder/assiasian gone rouge around.
