    Direct the Zombies to Donald Trump, then I'll knock his block off.

    I think surviving the apocalypse is possible but I guess it would depend on rationality and where you live like would America be ideal because they have guns? But I assume people would eventually kill each other. :mob:

    Think a lot of people will die stupidly like running away from a horde and tripping over and then get absolutely rekt.

    Would actually be a great scenario to kill your mortal enemy too as law would go out the window. :bl:

    Would be quite funny if Bear Grylls was the first person to get infected.

    Here is my zombie smashing team:

    Leader: Kyx
    Nunchuck-master-2334
    CheeseIsVeg
    Matrix123


    Never venture outside the base on your own. Always take at least one person with you. Aim for the head if you have to fight a zombie. If you have been in physical contact with a zombie, inform a member of the team straight away. If a member of the team informs you that they have been in physical contact with a zombie, kill them.
    okay

    I'd live on a speedboat in the middle of the ocean and survive on fish and any crops I can grow. I'd have a little Island which i'd map in a lot of detail, it would have a border defence, three walls and a large hill, the zombies would move up, i'd move down.

    It depends how fast the zombies move - if they're like the ones in the Walking Dead, Shaun of the Dead & the book version of World War Z then I'd fancy humanity's chances as well as my own.
    If they move as fast as the ones in the film version of World War Z or the infected in 28 Days/Weeks Later then we'd all be pretty screwed.

    Assuming they're relatively slow moving (because surely dead & decaying flesh can't actually move all that quickly) & can't climb then it wouldn't take an awful lot of countermeasures to neutralise their effectiveness. Ideas like houses raised up in the trees or build on stilts with some kind of rope ladder which can be retracted would protect you for example.
    The hardest parts in my opinion would be surviving the initial outbreak (where they'd probably be cover ups & disbelief followed by total chaos & anarchy); then it'd be generally trying to survive while scavenging (where you are in the world & what resources you have around you could either make this quite straightforward or very difficult); the biggest threat might actually be other survivors though as people would probably kill each other for supplies & groups would attempt to wipe each other out.

    Nunchucks are faster and can cause more damage.
    Broken 45 bones with 'em (not mine)
    Broken my nose and dislocated my jaw with them as well. That was 6 years ago.

    I reckon if you got a group of survivors together and formed a Vikings style shield wall then you could deal with any type of Zombie. If you were wearing motorbike or riot gear they'd have a hard time infecting you.

    If you stay in the city there's a much higher risk of being attacked because of the vast population. The thing is no area is really safe. You'd need a safe house that's atleast well protected like a secret bunker in lost. Prepping is a big thing in america and i think it makes sense to have that option available then not have it and need it .

    But in times of trouble and chaos it's other people you have to be weary about. Same as how my dad goes on about driving it's other people you have to watch out for. Don't think you're friendly neighbor wouldn't think twice about stabbing you in the back to get what he needed even if you've been chummy for years.Trust no one unless you can form a real solid group as protectors like on attack on titan. You don't really know how people act until it's too late.

    I think America will be safe when it does happen because Donald Trump would have built a great wall spanning the whole of America.
