Just to show that Booties Blog isn’t all serious, tales of woe and a world in crisis I ask you to STOP… just for a second and consider this. Have you made contingencies for the Zombie Apocalypse? No…? Well, I have. Its questions like this that pop into my mind during the day when my concentration drifts and I start considering completely random things.
Right… just say for instance you have 60 minutes from the announcement of a zombie apocalypse… the undead are walking the streets… answer these questions.
1 – What weapon do you immediately reach for?
Living in the UK and having no access to firearms I would run to my shed and grab a hammer, I know that’s pretty lame but that would be the only head smashing weapon I would have at my disposal at short notice. If I had a few minutes to spare I would gaffer tape a kitchen knife onto the top of it. Just in case.
2 – What 3 things would you grab from your house?
OK, so I have already grabbed my weapon which leaves me two things to pick up before I run for my car. I will need the car keys so I grab them and that leaves me only one thing to pick up. We are not including family here so my last thing to grab would be my phone. Actually I would leave the phone… probably wouldn’t get network coverage anyway. The last thing I would grab would be a rucksack full of food and water. The Red Cross actually advise you in a crisis to pack at least 3 days food as that is the minimum time recognised Government would be able to stage a relief operation. So yeah, hammer, car keys and food.
3 – Where would you set up your base?
My initial thought would be to get to my work. The police station would have weapons, cells, a security system, CCTV in operation. However the food is junk and sure as hell everyone would be rushing to it. So after careful deliberation I would head to the harbour and acquire me an offshore supply boat that was fully stocked and a crew. Then I would head to the nearest oil rig.
So, in the event of a zombie apocalypse what would be your 3 answers.
