Perhaps as a kid you seen Dawn of the Dead or another cheezy zombie movie where you're sitting there wondering why people can't get away when the damn things are walking so slow. They're are also busting through walls when you know for certain they're are so rotted that that should not be possible, but yet you are still frightened. My point is when you were growing up you never heard about anybody being seriously afraid of a zombie about break, it was simply hollywood makebelieve. So why are you so scared now? Maybe you have a friend who is really parinoid and may rubb that parinoid off on you, if so you have the opportunity to play a really awesome prank on them and stop buying into their bologna. Now, my next topic is about the man in Tampa who ate that guys face off. Many of you who are true zomie apolcolipse believiers first reaction was "oh my God Zombie." and you may have also suggested confidential conspiracy when where they so called tried to cover it up by blaming the incident on drugs. Two things, there aint a doubt in my mind that there is a drug out there that can cause a person to wig their brains out . It's absolutely true. Just as well, canabalizm it still alive and kicking just in case you didn't know and there are families, yes families, who prefer it. Those people are another reason why people go missing. And to just add on, combine the two together and you got one sick individual I promise you never want to come in contact with and that people is what you need to be scared of.Last thing I want to bring to mind, and please fill me in on what you think, but diseases as of right now end at death and they die too.
Okay all I can give you is my own personal crusty old guy slant on this, but since you are asking here it is. Any training, of any type, is nothing more than taking an imaginary situation and using your skills and the available resources to influence the situation is your favor. There are lots of parts to any disaster, but a zombie outbreak in theory covers most of the things you will need to be ready for in most disasters. It is a virulent infectious disease. It is a break down of law and order. It is a failure of resource distribution, and a failure of the power grid. If you are ready for a zombie apocalypse you are ready for almost anything that can threaten you and the people you care about, and most of them will not be ready. They will be looking to the people who know what to do. They aren't going to care where you got your problem solving skills or your stockpiled information and abilities. If the time ever comes when you are the one they are looking at, they aren't going to care that you have what you have behind "playing zombies". Anyway that is what I am doing here.
