Just don't let Rick see you eating the dog food.

Seems legit.

I accept the fact that living and working in poorly defensible locations in the city of Bangkok, home to around 12 million people, I'm pretty much royally screwed if the Zombie Apocalypse hits. My only possible chance would be that my noisy students might be enough of a distraction for me to get somewhere safe while they get swarmed. ;)

"I am 70 percent sure some kind of pandemic will happen," he told HuffPost. "We're over capacity and need to reduce our population. Other animals self-regulate, but no one wants to volunteer, and things like mandatory birth control are Draconian."

HAAH WAAW, zombie prepper, let me get my crystal ball and do a reading on this person:

-Over educated
-underachiever both professionally and in his personal life
-high-self esteem bordering on narcissism.
-inflated sense of self importance
-will blame his failing on external factors. (taxes, regulation, religion, feminism)
-fantasy-prone
-unable to fix their own personal failings, so have a desire for society to fail so others no longer impose expectations upon him/her
-small, shallow circle of friends
-no children or significant partner to feel responsibility for
-libertarian leanings
-distrust authority figures, even though he has never been arrested or had any significant conflicts with said authority figures.
-has over 2000 karma on Reddit.

How close do you think I got?

I know he's a redneck and all, and thus clearly had a stockpile, but at some point those arrows are going to break, and no one else is going to brave an overrun Gander Mountain.

No doubt very close. Although based on his view that we are overpopulated I'd bet the external factors that he blames his problems on are things like banks, genetically modified foods, industrialization, globalization, commericalism, etc.

Meh, another article written buy someone who doesn't understand what zombie scenarios mean.

/people turning on other people doesn't require a medical reason.
/just a short stock of supplies and a high sense of entitlement.
/doesn't help that there are actual diseases that can mimic a zombie scenario.
/preppers look at it as a [insert all disasters here] scenario.

One of the reasons I liked "28 Days Later" was that the zombies weren't dead...they were infected with a virus (Rage). Living people with their minds attacked by a virus is far more plausible than the dead walking (ultimately because in the "dead" zombies, things like rigor mortis, fast decay, maggots, etc...don't happen as they do in the real world). I still love zombies...because I can suspend reality and enjoy the more interesting interactions of a zombie series/movie...how the survivors interact.

He obviously doesn't understand that the Inevitable Zombie Apocalypse is inevitable. By definition.

Not very. Somehow you channeled me instead of the author.

I'm surprised they don't show Velveeta (a staple among rednecks): It's shelf stable and good for 3 years (as long as Spam).

Ugh, in both of those graphics, it shows degrees Kelvin... Kelvin isn't measured in degrees. It's just Kelvin. That would be like saying my penis is 6 degrees inches long.

While you're right about Kelvin, I think the 2nd graphic is saying 15 thousand degrees and not 15 Kelvin

Ah yes, you are correct. I'm clearly a moron. It's just the first graphic that fails, then.
