I was reading an article on cracked for Zombie plans. They pointed out one flaw with 90% of zombie plans. They all consist of going to gun stores, grabbing as many guns as possible and then raiding walmart, and getting out of the city as fast as possible. Quite a few also involve kicking down old people as food for zombies. Then creating a giant fort.

They pointed out that trying to loot a store owned by gun fanatics, who have lots of guns, and ammo, and are really good at using, said guns and ammo, in a giant mob of people probably isn't the best idea.

Then we get to Walmart to find that theres a mob of 10,000 already trying to loot the walmart. As we try to leave the city we get caught in a gridlock of a few million people escaping the same way.

Should all of elaborated points of the plan work, and you get the guns, get the food, kick down a few old people, get out of the city, and build a fort. Your now stuck inside a sardine can with limited food and ammo, with a horde of undead, chilling out and waiting for you to put a bullet in your head. The whole not needing food to survive thing works out well for them.


I'm not 100% on rules for linking outside sites however all material is PG-13. So it fits in with the forum.

Kamakzaie goes out with a bang

Step one: go to basement obtain longsword
Step two: pull a B&E next door obtain platemail (no joke they have it)

Why? I can cut zombies and no bite is getting me so as long as I kill enough and keep them at bay so I dont get mass dogy pilled and crushed

Step 3: go home get supplies (I do some camping and hunting and other stuff so I got the basics) "by basics rifle,gear,....

Step 4: Drive to museum obtain a flail... time to kill zombies witch king style when they get close

Step 5 visit my good old war meuseum: get a tank (even if theres no amo its good for crushing)

Step 6: gather supplies, an/some uninfected girl(s) (depends on apearence and number of uninfected) as well as a couple friends

Step 7: Have fun killing zombies for as long as possible experiment with diffrent guns (i.e. I alwayse wanted to burn walking corpses with a flamethrower)

Step 8: when it looks like you lost (although this will never happen to me but mabey others trying to do my plan) detonate explosives you had straped to your chest under platemail and go out with a BANG

australia doesnt have guns, killing zombies isnt my priority. although it is well noted, full body chainmail is the best against zombies, as their bites cant get through and you can maneuver about easy

anyways, it is raiding nearest food area, grabbing a ****load of supplies and because of proximity, i should be able to get it back to my apartment before any zombies reach australia, the forgotten country...

once at my apartment, i go up 16 floors to my place, grab a fire axe. and begin to fill the stairwell (fire escape) with furniture and stuff between the floors of 6-14. should be tiring but all in all good. since the zombies cant get through that. from then on, a pole with a kitchen knife on the end with loads of duct tape holding it there will be my protection, should be enough to mutilate and without serrated edge should cut cleanly through any zombie face.

after camping up there for a good week or more, road flares should signal that life exists and after that everything is out of my hands as im sure i can last at least a month or two minimum as i slowly search the rest of the floors and help blockade 14-16 quite well.

lift should be down as i dont think power would keep running for long.

just got to say if it's a virus they will probly need food because it's jus a fault in the brain, they still need energy to move, am i wrong?

i would get together with my friends, go up in the montains, live there in a cabin that most people don't know about, and if you stand on the top of the montain you can see anyone who's coming and can allert the others, enough food for 2-4 weeks up there :P

start making our own food some how, if you take base in zombie movies then Zombies only eat humans not animals, so go to where the animals are, there are a stable not to far, some horses would help and there are sheeps up there in hte montains also, breed them :P

but zombies are attracted to humans that arent zombies yet, i think their primary sense is smell. would you be able to survive out there when faced by a meagre force of roughly 50 zombies at 3:20 am in the morning attracted to you by a waft of smell on the wind.

if you ever ran out of food you could use one of the less useful people to see if well cooked zombie is edible

In the link number three, the number 11 guy explains why melee weapons are *CENSORED*. Your swinging and slashing with blood spurting everywhere, your bound to have cuts on you, and in typical zombie fashion blood and spit are infectious.

Most of the stuff in the zombie survival plan are joke kind of stuff with movie knowledge. Seeing how non of you red any of the links. Ill just post the the scientific knowledge the number one guy posted.


I know its a tad bit long, but just read it. Its very enlightening.



In order to

realistically write a zombie contingency plan, one must have

knowledge of how a zombie functions in order to exploit their weaknesses

and predict their attacks. I am telling everybody right now, the anatomy of

the zombies outlined in The Zombie Survival Guide is impossible. The

zombies would disintegrate, with cells lysing on a scale so grand that there

is no way they could eat you/pass on the virus before turning into a pile of

mush, let alone have the capacity of movement. Therefore, I am about to

discredit any possibility in the known world for a human body to function

without the proper systems in place. A virus is considered “pseudoliving”

which means that it is not technically alive by the standards of science.

Without the host cells machinery, a virus cannot grow or replicate.



Thus, a

virus must take control of the host cells machinery and use that machinery

to create its own DNA and subsequent proteins. This hinges on one very

important point, the cell must function as it has always functioned. It needs

glucose, fat or protein to begin the aerobic respiration that uses oxygen as

a final electron acceptor in the path to making ATP (energy) to run the

metabolic processes of the cell.



The implications

of this are great, the zombie has to have working lungs to

bring oxygen into the system, working circulatory system to transfer said

oxygen along with nutrients and wastes, and systems which can eliminate

said wastes. This brings into light the very real weaknesses of the zombie.

It must be “living” for all intents and purposes, but that does not mean it

will be easy to kill. Here’s the kicker:

The virus can manipulate the cells.



The neuronal

cells that stop replicating in adult humans are once again

capable of regeneration, a virus can lie dormant in a cell for very long

periods of time (as evidenced by HIV, which progresses into AIDs once the

virus decides to lyse the cells releasing the virus into the system) and make

the cell replicate with viral DNA in the nucleus creating hundreds of cells

with viral DNA in them. This means the virus will make the neuronal cells

replicate, creating millions of new neurons each with viral DNA in them, each

with the ability to control more of the processes of the human brain.



One

may also imply that the zombie is much smarter than your average human

being, with a larger number of neuronal cells capable of propagating larger

numbers of signals at a faster speed. I contest the idea that zombies are

stumbling creatures with an off-kilter gate and little hand-eye coordination.



I believe

that this hypothetical virus would create extremely intelligent

humans which it would have full control over, by producing the proteins and

enzymes of its own DNA rather than that of the original cell, it would be

fully plausible that the human infected with this virus would be controlled by

the desires of the virus, which would be to infect new hosts. Also, the

infected individual would not be the same person they were in their lives

with everything from memories to basic wants and desires being

manipulated and changed by the virus. The zombie would also have a

heightened set of sensory systems, and it’s plausible that the neural signals

from their external body are blocked by the virus in the CNS, reducing and

possibly eliminating the effects of pain or touch sensation.



Furthermore,

they may act with a hive mentality, working towards a common goal (and

remember, they’re smart), and their circulatory system may be routed in

order to increase the amount of blood to the muscles, increasing their

strength and agility. The most horrific realization: They may look completely

normal. The virus does not necessarily impact their vocal chords, and they

would look like a regular human being. Their behavior would be notably

different, but they could pass the virus on before the realization of what

has happened is fully recognized.



BTW: Zombie lore is surrounded by the belief that zombie's simply have the need to feed. The will eat animals. However what the human body needs more than anything is water. Alaska, Mountains, all have easily found sources of water. Dry, arrid locations are the smart choice. The human body will only survive a few days without water.
