A man's home is his castle, and possibly his last refuge from the brain-eating legions of undead.  Is your house ready?

If  you live in a TWO story house with no external stairs, you can leave an upper floor window unboarded, with a rope ladder for escape/foraging expeditions.

\BTW, can zombies get through goat fencing?  If they're lousy fence climbers, I am GOLDEN!

Basements are bad; too easy for zombies to fall into. You want to demolish the stairs leading up from the basement and the stari from the firt to the second floor and hide out there trapping the zombies below you since they cant climb without pilling on top of each other in huge numbers. You then use the demolished stairs to help fortify the first floor and use a ladder to go bettween.
Unless of course you get freaky fast zombies; in which case we are all fuxked.

According to the Zombie survival guide, only 1 zombie out of 5 can climb. :teddyr:

My Grandfather is a retired carpenter so was have least 5 hammers and 4-5 cord/cordless drills with any type of nail you can think of. Only draw back is I live in Apt. building on the highest floor though. I would destroy the elevator and do a floor by floor sweep. than get to the lobby and start barricading.

Hopefully have enough time to make to the police precinct which is only 4 blocks away and get some guns. :smile:

Well now, I finally have a good shopping list for the next time I'm out buying things.  Your list has saved me!  Now, we must address the issues of an alien invasion.  After all, aliens are smarter, quicker, and more technically advance than zombies.

Hmmmmmmm.... so the hot MILF is now a naked zombie.... but she's still hot... Couldn't I just trap her, wash her, gag her and tie her hands and feet and have my way with her and then carve her head in with a hammer?

Well, my house has a slope, so the zombies will probably break in and eat my family anyway...but I'll stock up
on the necessaries anyway! Thanks! Also, if possible, we need to get an old Greyhound bus, and put on some
acoutrements to allow us to ram through the hordes of zombies, whilst making a food run/getaway...

But what about the vampire plan? Too hard? I mean, if they follow convention, it should be easy to get them
before nightfall, correct? Maybe I need to rent '30 Days of Night' and get some clues...

Thanks AB! You Da Marine! Andrew in '08!  :thumbup:

I checked out the related forums to catch up on this subject and I noticed that the "slow zombie/fast zombie" argument kept coming up. Let me point out that in the origonal Night Of The Living Dead, the zombies in the cemetary DID move fast when they went after Barbara, but later were slow-moving. I suggest that this was because their muscles were rotting and they were getting rigor mortis.

Like the living, zombies eventually succumb to "old age".

Hey, that was in The Stink of Flesh, although the dude didn't cave in her head, he just left her restrained in the barn.... http://www.amazon.com/Stink-Flesh-Special-Scott-Phillips/dp/B0008KLV7I/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1222468710&sr=1-1 (http://www.amazon.com/Stink-Flesh-Special-Scott-Phillips/dp/B0008KLV7I/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1222468710&sr=1-1)

I'd say it's probably not a good idea.  I mean, among other things, the virus (or whatever) may not just be spread by bites (if you get my drift).

As was already pointed out, I would be concerned that zombism was an STD.

But what about the vampire plan? Too hard? I mean, if they follow convention, it should be easy to get them

The military has some offroad 4 wheel drive buses that look like the standard yellow schoolbuses everyone knows.  Those would probably be even better.

There are alien, werewolf, vampire, and even Innsmouth plans in the future.  All of them need more work.  I just got rolling with the zombie plan part 2, so I went with it.

I have a question... Why do zombies always go for human brains? Why don't we ever see them take down a cow? That could be hellafunny!


They went after pet brains in Return of the Living Dead Part 2 (http://"/othermovies/returndeadii/").  Still, seeing a horde of zombie tipping and then munching on a cow would be pretty funny.

Going up is always a plan, but jumping out of a window worries me.  I keep thinking about people doing crowd dives at concerts, and that is not something you would want to do into a zombie mob.  Sure, they might hold you up above their heads and pass you around - so each one of them can rip off a morsel as you pass by.

In that case, with the number of inbred white trash morons I live around I'm safe doing absolutely nothing.  Either no zombies will go near this town or the onslaught is already happening...I can't decide which.

I always wondered - what happens to zombies in the winter?  If a living person walks around outside with no coat and it's about 10 or 20 degrees, they eventually freeze, and then they freeze solid.;  I would think it would be even worse for zombies, being dead in the first place. 

Do I need to worry about zombies in Minnesota in the winter?

That's got me thinking, wouldn't zombies eventually rot away, especially the brain, after a couple weeks?  Considering tha amount of abuse the dead flesh would take from nature and people, a zombie apocalypse could last maybe a month if people play it smart.  A year if all the people left were the one's who figured out what to do instead of running around like a bunch of idiots.

Good point.  They should freeze - unless they were created by a chemical that also functions as antifreeze.  At least the odds are in your favor that a zombie-causing chemical would not also convey antifreeze properties.

And always remember, if your signifigant other has an issue with you stockpiling for a zombie apocolypse, you can always use another (less terrifying) disaster as an excuse.  Hurricanes work well if you live in a coastal state, as the preparations are nearly identical.  Other kinds of wind storms also work, though they might need some logical twisting (your house probably isn't gonna stand up to a tornado, no matter how well the windows are boarded).  Wildfires and earthquakes can be harder to rationalize, in which case you need to gloss over the actual disaster and focus on the possible lawlessness and lack of basic services immediately following it.

Also, a generator seems like an attractive option during the zombie attack, but I would skip it.  The noise will draw zombies for miles, and gasoline neither stores very long or will be easy to get.  Plus, you'll have to keep the thing outside, which is where you don't want to be going. 

Now if I could only keep people from relying on them after storms so that I don't have to wait in 2 hour gas lines to buy gas so I can get to work.

That's true. Unless Romero or Russo intended the zombies to be able live forever, logically they'd eventually die with no new flesh or brains to consume. The trick is to blast your way out of any cities and get into the wilderness or the Arctic Circle...

"World War Z" by Max Brooks (son of Mel Brooks  :buggedout:) covers frozen zombies and surviving in the Great White North pretty well (supposed to be adapted to a film someday).

Corned beef hash isn't one of the current 24 MRE "flavors" - thank God!

Disturbing as that sounds, I don't think it quite qualifies as "necrophilia."  Congratulations!  You just discovered a new disorder.  Or fetish.  Or something.  I'm gonna name it after you, but I call dibs on the next one. :teddyr:

You know, everyone is worried about surviving the zombie apocalypse, yet I find worrying about fleshy-headed mutants to be more of a worry.  Zombies are slow, self-decaying (except in the case of the aforementioned WORLD WAR Z), and can be dealt with more readily I think with a more mobile-mindedness.  I suggest a vehicle that is well suited for a long haul.  A gas truck will do.  It carries its own supply of fuel, is slow but steady, and is damned hard to get into if you have complete function of your body (worse I'm sure if you are a stumbling dead thing that announces itself with a moan and the sickly-sweet smell of decay).  But fleshy-headed mutants.  Man, those things are going to be a real problem.  I used this excuse for everything with my first wife (which may explain why she isn't still my wife, though we're shockingly good friends now) from stockpiles of old Famous Monsters of Filmland magazines to why we shouldn't throw away our old clothes when we grew out of them.  Fleshy-headed mutants, guys.  I'm telling you, it's something to think about.

While the hammer is effective, I personally think it is much better to always carry an array of different sized crowbars. Also everyone needs a crossbow.

You could pour hot/corrosive liquid on them.  They should feel pain; it would protect them. As such they should know to get away from the nut pouring stuff out of the upstairs window.

After some thought I decided to best place to be in the event of a zombie outbreak would be a caretakers house in a cemetary. Its going to be pretty hard for them to dig up through 6 feet of earth, not to mention its not going to be easy to escape the coffin with limited space to gain leverage. All the graveyards around here have walls around them and fairly solid gates preventing random wandering zombies from strolling in. And in the middle of a zombie apocalypse who else is going to think of hiding out in the middle of a nest of them? So other people trying to steal your supplies should be less of a problem too. If you do start seeing any signs of zombies escaping from the grave a headstone makes a great improvised weapon to push over onto them. You'd also have a fair bit of space to go wandering around in so you wouldn't be stuck in the house which could be used to grow food in.
