Ok; what's up with this Zombie stuff.......

Drills of the dead: Maine prepares for zombie attack
http://rt.com/usa/news/maine-zombie-apocalypse-drill-630/

I still say the bigest problem is bats.
Dang bats I tell you.
They are every where.
All over the place.

Watch out for the bats!

I fear and loath bats!

I hate to say this, but this place is getting to me. I think I'm getting the Fear.

8. You'll get no argument from me on that......

I'd even wager that bats have more human decency.

3. You kidding?

I've been preparing for the Zombielocalypse for years now.

This coming from a guy who has been having recurring dreams about these things for years, with time lapses in between that fit the time frame of life to dream. Which is really wierd and makes me suspect that there is a parallel universe that I am seeing.

I've got swords and have a shark suit, I work out and practice kendo, I've been improving my cardio also, enough that I do 15Ks and have done a marathon.

All I really need for now is to be able to run faster than the guy next to me so...
Oh, and check it. http://runforyourlives.com/?gclid=COzsmPKI77ACFUHf4AodrTEggg

I just have fun with these things, don't take me too seriously.

9. Agreed!

I don't mind beer, I am usually the designated driver since I barely if ever drink.

So, one of those that comes with me during that event gets an extra beer.

15. Right on. If you're not going to be the designated driver, HAVE ONE...........

The life you save may be you're owne.
No I'm not being a gosh darn goody two shoes here.
With age comes wisdom.
If you live that long.

12. My son is much the same as you!

You should see his martial arts weapons collection. He loves his Naginata (sp?) because he says he can lop off a zombies head without getting to close ...lol

Also he likes to remind me that he can run faster then me, so he will be fine.

13. LOL

Exactly!
Just have to run faster than the guy next to you.

The Naginata is great! I have a Dai Katana which I practice with. It is all for fun any way, but you never know.

Some people love their guns, but if they run out of bullets and don't have cardio, they're screwed.

11. lol- I believe it's a way they hope to make things a little more interesting

To capture people's attention. Also they probably figure zombie attack would cover the issues of most major disasters rolled into one

I figure it's very effective underground marketing and branding for T-shirts, computer games, and maybe a handful of movies masquerading as the New Cynical and Trendy Thing.

16. Haven't you seen "The Walking Dead"

TV program. http://www.amctv.com/shows/the-walking-dead

We have Walking Dead family night (my teenager, 21 yo and their friends) every Sunday during the fall season. It is one of the best shows on TV right now. Normally I don't care for zombie movies/shows but this one is well done.

I was really pleasantly surprised to see real characters you could come to care about.
