Yeah Zap, I have both of the Max Brooks Zombie books.  Z-War isn't funny, and in fact is quite a well written [in my opinion] account of the different stages of the zombie holocaust we have survived.

Basically he sets it out like a war correspondant, writing about his different interviews with different people involved in various countries and various areas of expertise.  I haven't finished it yet [been reading it off and on for the last few months] but some of the middle parts, about the initial outbreak, are actually quite terrifying.  What's good is that it's subtle, and as you read and learn more about what happened, the more the whole horrible story becomes clear.

It's not a classic book by any means, but I have thoroughly enjoyed it.

How about an old tank or armoured car for a land vehicle.
The only problem is the tremendous gas you'd waste
But you could use it as a fortress if it's out of gas.
And yes you can buy these things if ya know where to look.

But what do you do when your "fortressl" is covered in Zombies and youve run out of food and water?

Wouldn't the easiest thing be to let one of the zombies bite you, and then you'd be a zombie and you wouldn't have to worry about things like tanks, food, water, shelter, medications, weapons, fuel, etc.


It would be so easy.



Sooo easy...

What I want to know is why now has said diddly about using a shovel!? Think about it people if you get one with a long straight handle you can use it as a walking stick, a bludgeon, you can sharpen the edge and use it as a blade, and of course as a shovel. Then you can play Whack-A-Zombie, and then bury the remains.

Okay, your best bet is to train yourself for ANY type of distropic future scenario, (they're all the same), have a bookbag or something ready in advance, have the proper gear in your residence at all times, and work out and diet EVERY DAY!!!!  Make sure you know people who suspect the end is near and set up a meeting place, preferrably one of their homes.  Get together practice your skills and get ready.  Once humanity's demise comes, find any survivors you can at the first sign of zombification, once you have a large enough group, move to an abandoned farm with some resources or a military base.  You can then build a community that might eventually be able to lay siege to a larger zombie territory.  You then use that area to build up your community until the zombies rot away, or your resistance destroys them.  This is Patient 7, hoping you will join my resistance community against any and all zombies, mutants, machines or any other crazy things you can think of.  Cheers

ATTENTION LADIES AND GENTLEMEN OF BADMOVIES.ORG

I have recently heard news that scientists are trying to create live bacteria from scratch.  We all know what this means.  We build larger and larger organisms until people realize we can manipulate DNA, then we try and improve human DNA to make us immortal and impervious to pain.  There will be a mistake and our flesh will still rot, and drive people insane.  They can turn us into them by biting us and sending a virus into our bloodstream that manipulates our DNA!!!  This can also lead to a planet of the apes or mutant style ending too.

"... Church- Its on Holy ground so it may keep the Zombies away, but it may not work. You also has very few supplies unless an event was going to occur soon. The building structure is more often than not rather flimsy material."

Weeeell, that might be right for America, but if you live in Europe a church might be amongst the safest places you could get into period!

No, I'm not talking about some supernatural reason, I'm an atheist myself, but have a look at your average European MEDIEVAL church, the kind you find all over the place here!

Back when they were built they sometimes literally were meant to be used as as a sort of community safehouse during times of conflict which, in the olden days, happened quite often. Add to that the general Gothic style (no, not white facepaint but architecture!) and you have:

Several-meter-thick stone walls. Literally. (1m ~ 3feet). Thick, oaken wood main gates and few additional entries (maybe added in modern days) that can be easily blocked up with all the wooden banks. No windows on ground level - they're usually built high in the walls. (http://www.sinzig-info.de/open/M/qHsFag - check the church of my old hometown as an example). The tower offers a great view of the durroundings, often even enhanced by the church being placed on a high spot.
