If you haven’t seen the Danger Room blog at Wired yet, it mainly focuses on what is new in National security issues. While it does post about some serious topics it also has a fantastic series on how to survive particular disaster situations. By far my favorite so far is the guide to how to survive a zombie apocalypse.
With heaps of useful tips on what tools and weapons will help you the most in different situations. There is also some warnings about problems you might encounter like trying to shoot straight in a stressful situation, and to keep a close eye on the fuel level in the flamethrower. Reading this will prepare you whether it is a demonic ‘evil dead’ style (“this is my boom stick”) or a mysterious spreading plague style a’la Romero living dead style attack.
It is only a matter of time before the zombies rise so best to be prepared.
