This is possibly my least favorite option but it also seems to come up all the time on the Walking Dead. It just freaks me out. Every time one of the survivors goes at a zombie, actually reaches out to grab one and stabs them in the eye it freaks me out. Stabbing a zombie in the eye may or may not work as it’s both hard to do and doesn’t guarantee the brain will be destroyed. It also means that in order to even try you have to get so close that you stand a very good chance of getting yourself bit. But don’t give up on it entirely, as a last ditch effort when that zombie is about to have his lunch, it’s go time! Just make sure you get the knife, screwdriver whatever you have in as far as you can get it.

    I really like the illustrations on this blog (Surviving the Dead) – particularly this one on using tools to stab zombies. This is something that really freaks me out too! People seem to be far to casual with the whole ‘up close and personal’ methods for stopping the zombie shuffle. Stabbing a zombie not only requires precision, strength and close proximity – but it also means that there is a high possibility that blood (congealed or otherwise) and bodily fluids (I’m talking spit, bile and other wildly nasty things) will go spraying everywhere – over the floor you just cleaned, across your newly washed shirt and, yes, across you!!! This means that contamination risks are hugely increased (assuming that zombie virus can be transmitted in this manner, but hay, do you want to take that chance?) and no one wants that! Think of how everyone at work usually moves away from the evil bug spreader, you know the one – the snotty, sweaty individual coughing and sneezing in the corner who really should be at home rather than sharing their germs with every other hard working person in the room. We should be treating zombies more like we treat the buggy work colleague – like they are dangerous, infectious and to be avoided at close range.

    Whilst you are avoiding the heck out of everyone alive and undead, check out the other posts on Surviving the Dead – there are some great things on there and some really cool illustrations and ideas 🙂
