There's two kinds of people in the world. Those who have a plan prepared for when zombies take over the Earth and those who don't. We call those last people "dinner." My plan is to hijack a huge cruise ship, sail into the middle of the ocean, laugh at all the zombers trying to swim, and end my days partying it out on a huge cruise ship.

What's your plan?

My plan is to stock pile cup o'noodles in the attic and watch them fumble into the wall beneath me.

Preferably a glass bottom attic.

My plan is a bit more general, because it covers several other apocalyptic scenarios. Its main purpose is to deal with the incoming instability, war between the empires for power and resources, potential nuclear disaster to come. The plan is to earn loads of money and build a simple but reliable bunker for me, my family and friends with their families (20 people max I guess). It must be in a remote location with a nearby source of water. Lakes are favoured but rivers/oceans are OK too. Have large fresh water supplies and method of cleaning contaminated water: filters, chemical tables (hard to obtain, as most such technologies are used by the military or large production plants). Second is air, which needs to be filtered, hence air filters and pumps are needed - that's also not easy. But once those two things are sorted, then we're just left with power which can be provided either by a simple water turbine if we're near a river or just an internal combustion engine. Tinned food can be obtained easily. Waste such as feces and urine will have to be either dumped outside through an over-pressurised, double-air-lock camera (same principle as NBC protection for tanks/aircraft) or processed by chemicals/bacteria, similar to biolatrines.

I am serious about this. If you have any educated comments on the technical side of things, please let me know.

OVERWATCH STATUS GO

If the zombie apocalypse came, I'd have no desire to live anymore. I constantly question why people would want to survive in that situation.

This. Same thing for surviving the nuclear apocalypse - why would you want to? I'd rather just die in the blast.

Watch the movie Threads for a rough idea of what a nuclear strike (set in Britain) would be like. It even includes a pitiable sequence where the family follows the advice from the government at the time on how to build a nuclear shelter in your house: take off sturdy doors in your house and create a lean-to in the most central part and cover it with blankets and stockpile your food with you. IIRC they survived 2 days in agony before the radiation got them.

It'd be shitty to live, but I think the survival impulse in all animals would force you to at least try.

Just here for the pie

I've thought about this rather extensively. Here goes.

  • Gather up porn magazines (y'know, in case), canned food, bottled water, my dad's shotgun, maybe some knives, and my GBA (for entertainment).
  • Leave family behind, it's for the best and they'd only lag me behind. Sorry mom and dad.
  • Round up a pretty female around my age, offer her protection in exchange for sexual favors.
  • OPTIONAL: Go to Canada where the zombies will just freeze.
  • Go to a fort in the woods I helped build when I was younger.
  • Renovate the place, giving it a perimeter, watchtower and establishing several buildings: The Capitol, the Museum of Inferno, the Men's Quarters, and the Women's Quarters.
  • Establish the Kingdom of Inferno.
  • Find a few other females to father my children so we can repopulate the wasteland with my optimal genes.
  • Become the only free nation left in the world.
  • Allow other survivors to come into my humble kingdom as long as they surrender their weapons to me.
  • Grow society back, eventually becoming supreme ruler of the world, with over 25% of the population now directly descended from me.
  • U.S. Military comes in to take control like in any zombie movie.
  • End up killing them because we have automatic gun turrets in our watchtower.
  • Kill zombies.
  • Level up to 99.
  • Live.
  • Die.
  • Conquer.

Otherwise, dig a badass fallout shelter.

You mean the fact that they walk on the ocean floor and attack coastline areas? A bunker is, in my mind, a heavily fortified structure that is hard to get into even if you do have a functional brain and tools. ;)

No, the fact that there's ~750,000,000 other people trying to survive on the ocean. You'd be attacked by humans trying to find a safer place.

I was talking about Raccoon :P

Hmm. I think I'd seriously consider attempting survival for like an hour, and then realize that living in a constant state of paranoia would be worse than just putting a gun to my head right off the bat. Then again I'm assuming the zombies would be made up of every dead person on the planet, so we'd probably be outnumbered to begin with. :awesome:

I doubt a zombie-like virus would be able to reanimate a heavily decomposed body; there would be no muscles to control. In fact, I'd say any zombie that did not have a fully-functioning circulatory system would not last long at all. Hell, rigor mortis sets in between three to six hours. The only real threat would be infections present in otherwise healthy animals, assuming their systems can coexist with the virus.

I don't see why you need a plan; I would figure out what to do if the event were to occur without planning anything elaborate.

The likelihood of me even encountering a zombie is low unless I'm at or very near the outbreak site. In that case, I'd move away from the outbreak site if the CDC/government hasn't already acted upon it, or follow their procedure if they have acted upon it already (as they probably wouldn't want infected people to leave the area; that's how this shit gets serious).

You act like the government doesn't have any plans whatsoever for biohazards. Doing something radical when there's already a good procedure in place seems like a dumb idea. If anything, the worst part of the zombie outbreak will be people like you that hijack things and cause a more dangerous environment.

Uh, I mean, I would uh... stock up on guns, build an underground fortress, create zombie-fighting robots, and then conquer the world. Fuck yeah.

I'll do what Bill Murray did, if it works.

Roy, I think this topic is in the situation of either being completely isolated (the government quarantined your town because they want to study it ala resident evil) or a world-wide, almost complete infection.

In fact it is not uncommon for government departments and other agencies to stage mock "zombie outbreak" events to rehearse how they would react and prepare for future emergencies. They use the term 'zombie outbreak' to make it sound less serious and threatening to the public, some of whom might become concerned if they staged a mock "deadly ebola virus that makes everyone puke to death outbreak" or "avian flu will kill us all outbreak". Of course staging a mock "zombie outbreak" brings criticism from some dim-wits who question if the government seriously believes in zombies and wonders why they're wasting taxpayers dollars on games, etc, but those people are easy to ignore.

Sorry. It popped in my head.

A buddy and I were cleaning his basement once, and we found a ton of canned goods in boxes. We then joked that his parents have a zombie plan. Maybe I will live with them since they are already prepared.

I feel I must remind you that it is undeniable, and may I say a fundamental quality of man, that when faced with extinction, every alternative is preferable.

I disagree. If I was the last man on the planet, I'd kill myself. If I was the last man on the planet with the last woman on the planet, I'd try to convince her there would be no point in re-population. If she didn't listen, I'd offer to impregnate her and then kill myself.

Seriously, jokes aside, I'd consider suicide over survival. I wouldn't care enough to keep going. I just don't see the point in it. I've actually thought a lot about this every time I watched any zombie film or while reading World War Z.
