As Halloween approaches, the weather grows darker and gloomier, and The Walking Dead occupies televisions everywhere, you can be forgiven if your mind turns to thoughts of the undead. Those of you concerned with an impending zombie plague have probably given some serious amount of thought as to what to do when the dead rise from the grave. Perhaps you have a shopping mall, prison, or other secure location all picked out for when things go down.
Some of you, however, would likely prefer the comfort of home when fending off an army of brain-eating zombies. If you are of this school of thought, this handy-dandy infographic has some useful tips for home safety.
Some of these suggestions could indeed prove useful. It’s always a good idea to have an arsenal, food and water, and an assortment of medical supplies. These are all practical, and most are easy to get your hands on. Walkie-talkies are always useful in movies, and if you have the time and money, by all means, dig a deep trench and erect a tall fence. Eventually they’ll get through, they always do, but an extra buffer between you and the zombies is never a bad idea.
There are a few suggestions that are overly cute, and less readily available, like a boxing-glove bazooka. A robotic sheep to use as a decoy isn’t a bad idea, but where do you get one of those? And unfortunately, jetpacks are hard to come by. In a general sense, zombies or no, jetpacks would make life way, way better.
