    Default Things you've learned about surviving the Zombie Apocalypse...

    So, I've only been able to watch through Season One on Netflix so far, but I'm hooked.

    My wife and I had started an interesting discussion that I thought I'd share...

    What have you learned about surviving the Zombie Apocalypse from The Walking Dead?

    The two things we came up with quickly were:

    Suppressors on firearms (strangely absent from the movie)...

    Live on a Sail Boat...

    Avoid being in groups with children wearing sheriff hats.

    I would try to live on some island somewhere. You go there, take care of any zombies already present, and you are all set. No more will be coming.

    As much as I would want to believe I would survive any zombie apocalypse... I just wouldn't. :}

    If nothing else, I have osteoporosis, so I'd likely break my arms before breaking zombie heads with a cricket bat...

    I'm also about 20kg overweight... Mind you, Otis survived somehow...

    I guess what you need is a group of people you can survive with... by providing something the group needs...

    Training with a bow and arrow would prove useful... and yes indeed, where are all the silencers for those guns!!!

    All I know is that I would do everything in my power to not become a meal for a zombie or group of zombies.

    Yeah, no kidding. That would be a much better way to go than being eaten alive.

    Pick your Teammates very very VERY carefully.
    And leave your best friend/wife,and kids at home to survive on their own.

    *lol* Ok hon, good luck now, look after the kids, don't open the door for strangers... oh err or zombies... Love you, bye.

    I think it would be very hard - picking the right people... Makes me think of the short lived remake of "Survivors" by the BBC... the murderer, who basically helped the group survive because... he was a hardened criminal... could fight dirty... knew how to use weapons... But, would you want him as a friend...?

    Frankly a zombie invasion/other apocalyptic event could be a great chance to get rid of some of humanity's less ideal traits, but to live through the event, you would need "those" people...

    (Am a firm believer, having seen a few docos, that "aggressive" people - typically those that end up in jail for violent crimes - are a victim of their genes...)

    Yeah I'd definitely try and get somewhere secluded and try and kill all the zombies in the area. Then get back to living. Being in Australia there are a bucket load of isolated areas and islands around the coast line. Being in Victoria I might even be able to find an old gold mine and convert it into a refuge

    It is a good idea.

    From the show?


    Women are whiny hypocritical shrews who are not to be trusted.

    Men are arrogant hypocrites who make repeated dumb decisions and rarely learn from their mistakes.

    If you have a young daughter, don't ever let her out of your sight. She can't possibly survive 10 minutes alone.

    If you have a young son, don't worry about a thing if he wanders off. The elements, walkers, gunshots-- *spit* He'll be fine.
    "Not every movie is for you. Not every TV show is for you. Not every song is for you. Find the things you like, and like them. Go nuts liking them. A thing ISN’T for you? Cool. Go find something you like. That’s it. That’s as complicated as it should be." -- David Blue

    What you need is a farm... Err, not just cos of S2 of the show...

    You may be able to scavenge food for a while, but eventually you'll need to grow your own...

    And you'll need a big fence, unless you REALLY know you aren't going to get any walkers come along...

    (It hasn't really been heavily pushed as to how easy you can contract zombieism in The Walking Dead (other than bite/scratch), but if their blood CAN spread it, then you don't want zombies walking through your corn crops, drooling and bleeding everywhere... not to mention when you go take care of them... may get a tad messy...)

    If you going to stay in one place, build something stronger than a wooden fence to keep the zombies out.
