    Since we all know that Zombies are real, and I know that some of you guys are dorks like me, post your contingency plan for when the crap hits the fan and zombies are on your doorstep. I'll post mine when I get a couple extra minutes.

    Oh and due to the serious nature of this thread, I'd appreciate it if Jazzbo would sticky it. Thank you.
  2. First and foremost, board the windows and doors. There's nothing I like less than having a zombie come crashing in the dining room window or the french doors while we're in the middle of dinner. Zombies just aren't the most well mannered undead creatures.

    Yeah, that's always a pain in the neck.

    My six-year-old daughter handles Zombie issues for me. She scares the bejesus out of them, and they immediately turn and flee.

    About a year ago, one was slowly limping his way down the grocery aisle, knee brace on one leg, cane in hand, when she spotted him...

    "A ZOMBIE!!! DADDY!!! A ZOMBIE!!!"

    Poor Zombie did a 180° and was never seen again.

    She handles other issues as well, like the guy in the restaurant last month wearing the eye patch..... "DADDY!! A PIRATE!!! Can I go look at the pirate.... PLEASE!?!?"....

    I don't have a zombie contingency plan yet, but I have a fairly detailed nuclear holocaust plan, which I cannot disclose at this time.
  6. How about now?

    I can only hope that it's also a contingency plan.

    I didn't used to have any kind of plan for anything but now I have a good plan for a neighborhood blackout thanks to a fellow TBer.

    As far as my zombie plan? Well it's pretty much like most of my other contingency plans. When it happens post on TB about it.

    Mine plan involves lots and lots of fire, guns, dogs, and a trebuchet. -the main thing to remember is to leave the heads of the zombies you kill on stakes near your gate as a warning to their friends. A "wild eagle" post in this thread would be priceless, I imagine. `
  10. I never even thought I would need a zombie contingency plan, but, now that it's open for discussion, it's going on my list of things to do right above a will and buying smoke detectors.

    My friends and I have a silly zombie contingencey plan. It's balically a short trip to the gun shop, then to loved ones homes to rescue them. Then turning a large shoping center nearby "The Hancock Center" into a fortress. It's got a Sears, an HEB, a Radio Shack, and other useful places with means of long term survival. We would basically live on top of the HEB and go on missions to get stuff.

    This is what I posted in the other thread. Its actualy not a bad idea, I don't know how many of you live in Austin and know the place im talking about but it's just perfect.

    I guess I might go grab Paul and drag him along to ensure the survival of TB.
  13. My house is too big to be defended by myself, so I'll likely abandon it, but taking a few firearms along the way with me. I'll take my dad's pickup truck - has two gas tanks, plus a huge bed for putting in supplies and can go offroad if necessary. Have a few friends ride in the bed of the truck packing shotguns and semi-auto rifles.

    Oh yeah, and before I do anything, I press up up down down left right left right b a start, so in case I screw up I have plenty of lives :cool:

    There's gotta be a way to get the vampires get pissed off at the zombies and while they are fighting it out amongst each other, quietly slip away.

    I'll get back to you on this.

    i have 2 plans, but it all depends on what kind of zombies are on the loose. Theres the classic Type A zombie which is slow and mumbles. Type A's can be seen in movies such as "The Night of the Living Dead", and "Sean of the Dead". Then, theres the dreaded Type B zombie who is out for blood and can run fast as hell. These can be seen in movies such as the new "Dawn of the Dead."

    So as you can see, two totally different types of zombies means two totally different plans.

    My old class-mate Jake Weber was just in the remake of Dawn of the Dead , so I am going to ask him as he has real-world experience fighting the zombie menace. Right off the top of my head, I am thinking some sort of anti-zombie weapon based upon a Salad Shooter.

    Yeah type B zombies, like from 28 days later, are no good. I think we're all praying for the type A.
