Rules for surviving the zombie apocalypse

I’ve heard rumors of a sequel to Zombieland coming out soon? But at this stage there are rumors about who’s going to be in it and what it’s all going to  be  about. Two things stand out about that movie, Bill Murray and the rules. Whether it’s keeping up with your cardio, wearing a seatbelt or making sure to double tap a zombie so you’re sure they’re really dead the rules make a lot of sense.

This got me thinking, maybe I should come up with my own set of rules for how to survive in an apocalyptic situation. So what do you think? What’s top of your list as far as survival strategies go?

  1. Assuming you’ve prepared appropriately, my first rule is wait. Just wait. If zombie movies and books have taught us anything, it’s that we have more to fear from ourselves than the hungry dead. Zombies are scary and awful, but they’re predictable, and thus manageable. People are not. People are a mess. Hole up somewhere safe (part of being prepared is having somewhere safe to hole up) and let the zombies get rid of the free radicals first so that you have a more manageable playing field.
    Cold. Heartless. Necessary;



    1. I totally agree. People run into all sorts of problems when they start mucking around scavenging and dealing with each other. At some point it’s necessary like in stories like the Walking Dead where they are constantly running out of supplies. But, as you said, they actually want to wait. They’ve tried temporary shelters, a farm, a prison. It’s all rather frustrating really.
