Just so we clear things up, let’s go through a quick checklist of how prepared you are;
- Safe house?
- Meeting place?
- Emergency Numbers?
- Other Items?
- Teddy bear or pet?
Right, so now you have each or many of those things, I would like to point out one fatal flaw to all your hours of planning and making decisions, spending hours on the Internet and losing friendships because you have no social life. What’s the problem? One can never be fully prepared for a zombie apocalypse.
So you’ve survived the outbreak, you’ve found a group to stick with, and you’ve found a relatively safe place to stay. You feel relieved that you’ve got a moment to rest, but the apparent leader calls for everyone to look for any wounds or bite marks. You search yourself and the person closest to you and find nothing. Everyone reports the same, all but one who remains quiet, clutching his arm. Everyone looks at him, he laughs nervously, “It’s just a scratch” he says. He’s pale, sweating, breathing heavily. The leader walks over to him and says quietly, “You know what has to happen”. The injured man starts to sob, “Please, it’s just a scratch”. The leader walks over to you and hands you his gun, “Do it”. The injured man falls to his knees, still sobbing, “Please…” What do you do now? Whatever happens next, someone has to die. What do you do? Can you do it?
Who are you? Ask yourself. Now. NOW. Good. I’m guessing you answered with the standard name, age, and birthplace, but is that who you really are? Is that what defines you? If it is then good work, you probably need to get out more. If it isn’t, you’re on the right track. Knowing who you are, who you really are, is one of the greatest things a wo/man can know. Unfortunately for us, not many people really know themselves inside and out. It’s something we continually strive to understand. But if you start learning about yourself now, when the time comes that you need to put all your cards on the table, it’ll put you that much further ahead in the race to survive. (more…)
Zeds aren’t the only ones who should be concerned about brains in the zompoc.
The human mind is a fragile thing. A slight change in chemistry can mess you up hardcore style. If you have any chance of living through the zompoc you need to take care of it, otherwise you could end up as mindless as the walking dead themselves.
But do not fret my fellow survivors, for I am here to help you prepare for the inevitable. With any luck we will see each other sound of mind, knocking down zeds with a smile on our faces and survival in our hearts. (more…)
