While looking at my Monday morning zombie-esque co-workers yesterday it got me thinking about my chances of surviving a zombie apocalypse.....and I think they are pretty good!
I took an online quiz and it says I would survive and everyone knows online quizzes are 99.9% accurate.
Here are some reasons I would survive.
First off I have read and seen every zombie related book and movie.
So I know what I need to know to survive.
Reading is power!
I know how to shoot a gun/rifle. I may not be a sniper but all I need to do is hit them which will give me enough time to get away. Zombies are not fast....you have seen the movies they sort of drag along and when they try to run they trip over each other. My first act of survival will be to gather as many weapons as possible. These include rifles, handguns, baseball bats, hockey sticks...pretty much anything that can be used to whack a zombie over the head. Oh and ammunition can't forget the ammunition.
I am smarter then a zombie which isn't saying much considering a zombies brain is mush. This gives me the advantage of being able to logically think of ways to escape while they are trudging along towards me. This is only necessary if I do not have a weapon at hand.
Zombie do not have super powers that is the main thing here. They can not fly, the don't have super strength, x-ray vision or super speed. I don't have super powers either but I do have a functioning brain and a deep desire to survive.
The best way to avoid a zombie attack is to stay away from the zombies. I am not a hero I just want to survive. There is no shame in running and I don't want to waste ammunition engaging for no reason. Zombies appear to prefer the city, maybe because a city has more people or maybe because they hate pretty meadows with butterflies and flowers, who knows but I will avoid the city only going when I need supplies.
So lets recap
1. Not a hero
So I am pretty sure I will survive.....how about you?
