    Zombie Apocalypse! What would you do?

    Not those marathon runners or Olympic sprinters; not the "I CAN HAS MEMORY PL0X" type either.

    The good old 'drag my feet else I fall over' zombie, the rotheads that number in their thousands and use these oversized numbers alone to overwhelm the prey.

    Discuss. For the moment, I am far too lazy to be typing out an essay on my plans!

And it spoke in a tortured parody of human speech: 'relp me, Raggy,' it would say. 'I am an abomination and rould re rilled. Rill re, Raggy.'"

    RE: Zombie Apocalypse! What would you do?

    Haha, I believe this is the second time I managed to derail a topic and get a new one created.

    I guess I would first need to raid the local supermarket and gun shop for the necessary supplies and weapons. From there, if I could I would travel to the channel islands, assuming we aren't talking about Land of the Dead zombies that can travel underwater? Getting to water would be easy as I live on the coast, although acquiring a boat and navigation could get me killed. From there it would be a case of killing a few hundred zombies, yeah, not that easy but still easier than a few hundred thousand. If that worked I would then attempt to actually live on those islands, although to be honest, I've never really thought about how I would live properly after escaping the zombies, like if it would even be doable.

    An alternative would be, I guess to try a Dawn of the Dead. Barricade myself inside a local shopping center, after acquiring weapons of course. Then lock all the doors and proceed to empty the shopping center of any and all zombies left there. This would only ever work as a temporary solution though, at some point I guess I would again, try to get a boat to travel somewhere else.

    From all this though, I am assuming we are talking about the Night of the Living Dead zombies and not the 28 Days Later ones? If it was the latter, then I would just be screwed.

    RE: Zombie Apocalypse! What would you do?

    Yeah, it's the classic 'Romero Zombie' in this topic, as seen in his original trilogy and the first few RE games; shambling corpses that shuffle around with little or no intelligence/reasoning power, very rarely breaking into a slightly faster walk if they see 'food'.

    EDIT:
    Updated original post.

    RE: Zombie Apocalypse! What would you do?

    Being in a fairly small town it should be easy to set up and defend, but being at least 15 minutes drive from a major city could be troublesome. If this were to happen right now as I'm sitting at this desk I would proceed as follows: Immediately I would grab my bag and empty it of its current contents. I would throw in my knife, scissors, flashlight, flint/steel, any food we have left, gum, a book (keep my mind occupied) take what medicine and clinical items we have: motrin, tylenol, isoprophyl alchohol, bandages, toothbrush and toothpaste. Its not worth getting sick; it will slow you down.

    From that point I would gather up my two friends that live here at the dorms with me and head to a friends house in town. At that point we'll discuss and make our plans. The badass in me would want to set up defenses, get cool weapons, and hold out ...but sadly being the person I am I would end up making one of the worst decisions you could make in a time like this. I would be forced to part ways and go get my family. In order to get back home to my family I would need to travel through two major cities, which could be troublesome for a car to maneuver through with all the panic and destruction and all the possible infected around. I'd need to learn how to drive a motorcycle as soon as possible or find someone that can fly a plane. We have a landing strip and aviation center on our campus and we have an small airport in my home town. So that would be the best mode of transportation.

    When and if I did make it to my family it would only be trouble from there. I just couldn't let my survival instincts kick in and abandon the people I've known and loved for the past 18 years of my life. I would wait it out from there and do the best I can. If I managed to hold out through the devastation and losses. Then and only then would I go my own way. If that was to happen then:

    I would go for my .22 scoped rifle that I've never shot in my life, and proceed across the street to my grandparents house to pick up their rifles and shotguns and put them in the trunk of their 4x4 ford explorer. I would then make my way to our super-center, grab what ammunition/supplies, maybe find some travel companions if any were there and unharmed, then leave to fight/drive our way to the interstate which is 5 minutes from the super-center. Just 10-15 minutes down the interstate I would reach midway where we have a gun-shop. Big and has a variety of guns, has a big gas station across the overpass and also sells world-wide (keep in contact with others? I guess). There I would make my stand, get organized with the people there. And make runs for food/supplies when needed.

    I'm sure my plan has many flaws ...but that's about the best I can do and think of since I live smack dab in the middle of the U.S. Sorry if any of that was hard to follow or if some of it didn't make sense. I typed this up pretty fast I would really loved to have equip a vehicle, or gear up myself for intense battle but in reality above is what I would truly do.

    RE: Zombie Apocalypse! What would you do?

    Well! With my best mate who I do everything with get my dad an step mum, pick up my ex who I am still infactuated with and her two friends (who date, and one doesn't like me), escape from my now infected stepmum, and travel to the local pub and hole up in there.

    Unfortunately, during the travel my dad will get bitten and none of us would know. Also, whilst in my pub, my best mate would be idiotic and plug in the pinball machine, so the zombies would know we were in there. THEN the guy who doesn't like me will be taken through the window, and his girlfriend opens the door screaming, and bashing loads of zombies, not before my dad turns into the zombie and has his brains blown out. Then, my bestmate gets bitten, and we go hide in the cellar.

    HOWEVER! Something happens, and my friend would then live in the garden shed and me and my partnet would be back together. And Trisha would be on TV talking to a girl who sleeps with a zombie.

    You're asking for historical accuracy in a series where men weilding three swords in each hand, pirates surfing across land on giant anchors, horses with motocycle parts attached and feudal-era Power Rangers are the norm?

    Still, better than this guy's idea of... not really noticing:

    RE: Zombie Apocalypse! What would you do?

    First I'd thank god for the second amendment and Colorado gun laws and then I would proceed to load my Remington 870 Express with 00Buck, hand the M1 Carbine to Derek and give Ryan and Jared each one of my .22's. Next we raid Wallmart for ammo, more guns, food and medical supplies easily overpowering the other unarmed looters and zombies. After that its a toss well probably go our separate ways. I'd most likely try to head home and find my family.

    RE: Zombie Apocalypse! What would you do?

    Er, your biggest supermarket in the US sells ammunition? Fascinating.
    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    RE: Zombie Apocalypse! What would you do?

    Ammo and guns. I prefer to shop at small and local stores instead of wallmart for anything I can from groceries to ammo. But in an end of world scenario, the owners of the small gun shops tend to be more well armed and willing to shoot looters, so wall mart it is. If the ammo thing surprised you should see what is on the market at the regional gun shows. Also, unlike the traditional zombie movies where one person might come across a gun over 85% of the people in this country are already legal owners of firearms,usual multiple firearms, then you have to add in all the illegally owned firearms and well lets just say that's a very big militia.
    The reason I'd be up against mostly unarmed looters is because the wallmart is right next to the college where firearms aren't allowed and most of the looters would be my fellow students.

    RE: Zombie Apocalypse! What would you do?

    Back from my recent journey to Florida, I'd have to say Wal-Mart is the place to go!

    I was surprised to see Machetes & Rifles just up on the shelves!
