    I thought we were talking about brain eating walking dead zombies?
    You're talking about drugged people? I suppose I'd just call the cops on them.

    My plan is to get as many of my loved ones into a suitable 'fortress'( a supermarket/shopping centre), collect as many weapons as possible (knives, blunt objects, guns if anyone in this country has one, etc) and wait it out, if possible. If not, we think of another plan.

    The problem is if we have a zombie problem, what are the zombies going to be like? The Dawn of the Dead zombies or more Shaun of the Dead zombies? It depends on how the zombies function to know how easy holding them off and waiting it out would be.

    I didn't plan for any "zombie" outbreaks.

    Rather, I have ample water, canned goods, supplements, equipment and weapons (inc. firearms) to see me through pretty much every survival situation.

    A "28 days/months later" type of infection or zombie would be interesting to deal with, to say the least.

    Let's say for the purposes of argument that it's "Shaun" or "Night" zombies, not the "Day" remake. Interesting strategy ideas? I posted one but either it didn't get in or was deleted. Hmph.

    In other words, dumb, slow moving zombies that are vulnerable to brain damage? Easy as fucking pie: just stay away from areas with a high population density, popular locations like Walmart and you should be just fine. Ration your supplies, specialize in a useful trade and learn to use firearms...

    I can't see them as being a threat. Honestly, I don't. You'd have to be seriously underprepared, stupid or really unlucky to be a victim of shamblers.

    Congratulations on being one of the first to die if something like this happens. You can wear your anagrammed name proudly...

    Have you seen Shaun of the Dead? That's how it starts. This guy is walking around, zombies all over the place, and he doesn't even notice!

    What I don't understand or accept is how the zombies hit high densities so quickly. I mean, it's bollocks. There wouldn't be any army of shamblers because people would catch on fairly quick that getting bit or oozed on was a sure ticket to Staggersville. I think it would only work demographically if there were some other reason for people to drop dead and then get up and get down with the sickness.

    BTW: Here's a couple links to some good zombie online novels (serialized and 100% free) and actually also a vampire and werewolf one.

    www.brokentype.com

    Also giant squid. And who doesn't love giant squid?

    Damn. All the voty-voting type voting has invalidated part of my thesis. Males and females who responded to the survey appear to have zombie plans (1/2 vs 1/3) at a similar rate, statistically. So: both sexes are equally wierd. I shall consider this from within the confines of my well-stocked bunker.

    Ugh, MAW. I hate calamari.

    Oh yeah, I'd also check out "Infection" by Scott Sigler on Podiobooks.com. Freebie, and a nice one - but very very gory. No zombies but worth a look.

    GeoffP, there's a big difference between having a plan and "having" a "plan": most people's idea of a plan involves a Walmart, supermarket or mall. That's basically just adding numbers to the zombie population. How many are truly ready for another New Orleans? Even simpler, how many have water, food and equipment set aside for especially rainy days?

    A good point, but I was rather just curious to see who's actually thought about it.

    Heathen!

    My insurance does not cover for it (my husband actually checked when we insured our properties and chattels.. the idiot thought it would have been amusing if it was there.. as I said.. idiot..

    ). And no, I have never actually thought about it since I do not believe that it has an even remote chance of happening.

    By nature and moral, I eat no gastropods. Anything that rides its own trail of slime is fetid, not foodstuff. Similarly, I abhor those having anything to do with the legal profession, and DiamondHearts.

    A squid is not a gastropod. They are actually soft bodied cephalopods.

    That's funny.

    I thought you were a lawyer because you are so conniving and sneaky.

    That's not very nice.

    Heaven. Not to eat them, that is.

    Well, I agree. Still, there's something about darkened, open buildings late at night that make me wonder sometimes, and look frequently over my shoulder for a glimpse of something staggering. Still, I had a colleague once argue to me that "it could happen". I promptly ate his brains.

    Damn, I thought they were all under the gastropoda. And me a biologist! Stupid phylogeny. You're right of course.

    Actually all my connivingness and sneakivity were self-taught. I never saw the need to formalize my expertise in this area with a formal legal degree.

    No, but how true.
