Zombie Safety with Zombie Facts
Many people don’t realize the importance of learning as many zombie facts as possible. After all, if you’re like most folks, your hometown isn’t being overrun by the undead. But when that happens, you will be the one your friends turn to in order to survive, while others who ignored the ever-present danger from zombies are attacked and their future almost certainly cemented as a new member of the population of the undead. Practice zombie safety by learning as many zombie facts as possible.
- Save yourself by running without falling. There’s no doubt that stumbling into a ravenous group of zombies is upsetting – terrifying even. But the facts show that 1 out of every 3 people consumed by zombies tripped and fell. Relax in the face of a horde of zombies. Remember, even if zombies chasing you include the U.S. 4×100 meter gold medal champions, the undead lose more than just a step in the transformation to zombie status. These monsters are slow, slow, slow.
- Don’t rely on emergency responders. While statistics in this area aren’t available, plenty of people make the mistake of turning to emergency responders in their town for help, not realizing that every third person has become a zombie. Even a zombie with a badge will eat your brains.
- Body armor helps. The way to become a zombie is when one bites you. So protect your body as much as possible. And don’t worry about any rule against anyone but police wearing these suits. Apocalyptic times call for serious action.
- Weapons are good. You can’t kill zombies unless you decapitate them, or take out their brains, but gunfire, knives and other weapons will slow them down even more. A machine gun, for example, is great for clearing a path if you are encircled by zombies.
- Fire and bright lights. Zombies do most of their roaming at night. It’s a scarier time and zombies do much better in the dark. That means bright flashlights and other lights, along with fire, are terrific zombie deterrents.
- Leave infested areas. It’s really difficult to stress this option strongly enough. Everyone has seen the movies in which a town is infested with zombies and all the living do is go to different areas of the infested town. Bad idea. Your odds of survival naturally increase if you find an area with only a few zombies as opposed to 100,000 zombies. And look at it this way: If most everyone is dead, your home town is going to lose much of its appeal, anyway.
