My first zombie article! Squeeeeeeeee!

Ok, I’m heading out the door now, but I just couldn’t wait to post this.  But the site that hired me to write zombie blogs is now live and my first post is up!  Here’s an excerpt:

…if you want to survive a massive zombie disaster, you don’t want to be a hero.  Guns?  Yeah, you might be able to dispatch a zombie by pulling the trigger (although, hitting an unpredictably moving target, even for a trained shooter, is still no easy task).  But what good does that do you if firing your weapon announces your presence to dozens more?  I’m not saying guns are never appropriate for this scenario, but most people live in densely populated areas (which will subsequently become densely zombified areas).  That’s not where you want to be making all kinds of racket.

And these guys have tanks and hand grenades?  Not to be incredibly cynical, but I love these guys.  They will be like zombie magnets while the smart people sneak around to relative safety.  People who think the best response to being greatly outnumbered is to go into full-on Rambo mode are the reason the words “natural” and “selection” exist.

I’ll be doing 2-3 articles a week over there and will usually excerpt them here.  :)  Enjoy and stay vigilant!
