    Zombies?

    I know this guy, who is absolutely, totally, and completely terrified of zombies. He's 24 years old or so. Some people have an elaborate fire escape plan somewhere in their house, and go over it regularly? He has a zombie attack plan, which includes a stash of guns and tons of ammo.

    Merely mentioning zombies increases his pulse and makes his palms sweat. He can't watch horror movies that feature zombies.

    I sent him a link to this article, which isn't even really about zombies, and he totally lost it.

    http://www.mercurynews.com/mld/mercurynews/16156469.htm

    Anyone else have stories of completely irrational phobias?

    (FYI, Mine is hypodermic needles, but at least hypodermic needles are real)

    Zombies may be real, but not the kind who move fast and want to eat your brains.

    Zombies are, indeed, real. Your friend will, indeed, have the last laugh when The End comes... indeed...

    make no mistake, I have shotguns and plenty of ammo. And I could put a hurtin' on the zombie population, should it ever arise.

    I just think the chances of a burglar coming into my place, or a war on home soil are more probable disasters that would require that kind of force. And I think getting hit by 3 sequential lightning strikes, basketball-sized hail and a tsunami all from the same storm are more likely than a zombie infestation. By the way, I live in Kansas.

    That's why 24 x 7 businesses have locks on the doors; to keep the zombies out.
    Your friend is just following a long held tradition of undead defense strategies.

    Everyone knows that the world's supply of hypodermic needles comes from Zombiecorp., LLC. Each injection you receive during your lifetime brings you one step closer to the realm of the undead.

    Actually he's on another forum, and most of his posts are in a forum that you need to be a member to see. I'm an admin on that forum (not a moderator) and about 4 months ago I found out about this fear of zombies he has. For halloween I actually added a zombie smiley that seems to say "Braaaaaaaaains" over and over again. He officially hates me now.

    Hm, shotgun ammo is too heavy to lug around in a zombie situation. I'd want nothing more than an automatic ***** should a zombie event occur.

    Then again, there's always this....

    Oh, and Megaforce, but Netflix is apparently too good for that masterpiece...

    I got the first three on there. I can't remember much of Labrynth but I'll put it on there to see if it sparks any memories.

    The Zombie survival guide is remarkably well presented. I stil have issues with its decision on armour though. Some lightweight lycra/kevlar mix will teethproof you nicely.

    But that's no substitute for not getting caught in the first place. Swords and Mossbergs, ladies and gentlemen. Swords and Mossbergs.

    Start here:

    I thought his issue w/ "assault *****s" was a little flawed. He was only taking into account full auto. You can get an AK-74 at any *** show that shoots a 5.56m round in semi-auto only w/ a 30 round clip. That'd be a hell of a lot more handy than a 22 or any bolt action or limited capacity semi-auto. The Mossberg would be nice, especially in a panic situation where you can't really take the time to make a clear headshot, but the ammo is bulky and range is way too limited. I'd rather not be any closer than 100 yards from my zombie target. And I agree on the sword, though I'd prefer a large bola knife, personally.

    Silly guy, all he needs is a vacuum sealer and some fresh brains....vac-pak it and pull them out when to keep zombies occupied.

    Better yet, keep some and a bottle of dom around to romance the hot ones.
