How To Survive a Zombie Apocalypse

Posted in humor, ideas with tags , , on May 13, 2008 by artofpeace

The world being is being overrun by zombies!! Whether you ascribe to the metaphorical zombie (ie. republicans, yuppies, or him) or the biological zombie (ie. ebola) or the funky zombie (ie. fela kuti), the idea of an entire community of these flesh eating monsters coming after you can keep one awake at night.

Not to fear, WIRED has a wonderful tutorial on how to “survive a zombie apocalypse“. The information is surprisingly practical, and even covers “long term survival” which is often underrepresented in most Zombie movies. Remember, keep your head, and don’t say I didn’t warn ya!

Ever imagine what cities might look like in the future, or if certain world events transformed beloved global landmarks into some weird alternate reality.  Wired has a set of cool images showing a set of “mile high skyscrapers and floating cities that never were”, for all you budding architects and alternate historians out there!  I also like the little histories written next to them as captions, kinda like little science fiction blurbs.
