As my grandfather would say... it's a stinkin' mess.

:O

Is Vegas taking odds on who's going to make it out of Season 2?

Hey [livejournal.com profile] xi_feng, our favorite Boondock Saint isn't going anywhere for Season 3 of the Walking Dead. *^_^*

I'd be kind of okay if Lori got eaten, tbh.

I love it when scientists have a sense of humor.

On Friday night, husband and I went out to see the zombie training film "28 Weeks Later." We found "28 Days Later" to be such a useful resource that we ended up buying it, and although we did not expect "28 Weeks Later" to live up to its predecessor, it got a 70% from Rotten Tomatoes and we figured it couldn't be all bad.

And, it wasn't. Not nearly as good as "28 Days Later," but I didn't walk out of the theater wanting my money back. Although, I was deeply concerned at how few people had come to see the movie with us. Don't they understand that scenarios such as these have been made to make people think about preparations for a Class 4 outbreak?

So, let's go over some of the points of the movie and see what it has to teach us.

Last night at 9 PM, the USA Network aired the Zombie Outbreak Training Film "Dawn of the Dead," which depicts a Class 3 outbreak that proceeded to Class 4. As those of you who have watched this training film may know, the outcome for these noninfected souls was not as fortunate as it could have been. Let's review what they did wrong.

1. Stayed within the city.

Urban areas are the worst protected from zombie outbreaks! Always try to find a sparsely populated, defensible area in which to make a stand.

2. Took shelter in a mall.

Malls are almost indefensible. An undead horde can easily push its way into a mall if alerted to the presence of fresh meat inside.

3. Investigated strange sounds.

When in doubt, RUN!

4. Inadequate armor.

Despite their visit to an ammunitions shop, none of the protagonists helped themselves to available body armor. Although an encumbrance, armor is invaluable as regards bite protection. Several of their number were lost to bites.

5. Attempted escape in a car/truck.

This one could be argued, since the type of zombie depicted in the training film was a Fast Zombie, capable of running. More typical Slow Zombies can easily be outpaced on a bicycle. However, the drawbacks to escape in a wheeled vehicle were accurately depicted, specifically that even a strong vehicle can be overpowered by an enormous crowd of hungry undead.

6. Escape on a boat.

The boat was a sailboat, so lack of fuel could be ameliorated, but our heroes ran out of water, and the food spoiled when the generator quit. Escape on a boat is only feasible when one of the party is an experienced sailor with knowledge of the surrounding water and ports. Get in, get what you need, and get out!

With Halloween approaching, it is more important than ever to be PREPARED for a zombie outbreak! For starters, I recommend a copy of the Zombie Survival Guide, a well-written and thorough introduction to survival during zombie outbreaks.

I am pleased to announce that my husband and I have watched 28 Days Later, and we found that the principles used against the Infected were in accordance with the guidelines laid out in the Zombie Survival Manual. It is indeed heartening to see that the directors of this movie did their best to bring the reality of a zombie outbreak to the attention of the public, and that proper survival techniques - as well as the consequences of not using them - were realistically displayed. Bravo.
