We love zombies. More specifically, we love the idea of easily killing zombies, as they are traditionally the easiest of all monsters to destroy. Their slow and plodding nature makes them easy targets and anything big and blunt becomes an honorable weapon of survival. Unless, of course, you happen to be an over-confident military leader, or a doubtful member of a lone survivor's party, or, perhaps worst yet, a backstabbing traitor, then you probably won't survive too long. Clichés aside, it's important to be honest with yourself about what you'd do if the zombie apocalypse ever came to your neighborhood.


Reddit user, u/thanoslobster, wanted to know what's your fallback plan for an undead uprising when they asked:

If you knew that a zombie outbreak is going to occur tomorrow where do you go and why?

Honesty Is The Best Policy...

If there was a zombie outbreak I would be one of the dudes in those movies who dies in the opening scene so that everyone else knows they are now in a zombie movie.

"Hey guys, you won't believe the day I had. Some crackhead bit me on my way home! Oh well, I'm going to bed. See you tomorrow!"

Has There Ever Been A Medieval Zombie Film?

I'm just going to wear a suit of armor and go about my usual business.

This is the kind of spirit I like to hear, soldier!

Isolate Yourself

Stay home. I live in the mountains already.

Melliedepena

I have so many connections about internet speed and cellphone reception up there

workinprogress49

if a zombie outbreak happened, internet would crash and reception would no longer exist since theres no one to operate the servers and towers. even power would be an issue

Time To Get...Serious

I have a multi-stage plan for this:

  1. Go to Flathead Lake and live on some of the islands. They have cabins and mansions on them, are close enough to shore to go there and hunt, and is a very secluded area.

If that falls through then...

2) Go to Kodiak Island. It has a small town, little people= Little zombie population. Lots of natural resources and is a very wild and expansive area. The winters might help with zombies as as well.

Now if that falls through then...

3) Go to the Faroe Islands. Very few people know about them and their small towns and wide spaces are good for hunting, fishing, and survival.

If that falls through then...

4) The final attempt is make it to Pitcairn Island. The most secluded place in the world will probably operate as normal because nobody goes there anyhow.

The reality of this plan is that it gives constant hope. No matter what place falls you will have hope of a better place. You'll keep on pushing and fighting to find somewhere better and maybe die hopeful on the way. Hope is the only way to survive a zombie apocalypse.

Gotta' Keep That Blood Where It Belongs

Somewhere with no mosquitoes.

mudbutt20

Oh sh-t. Mosquitos have never once crossed my mind when thinking about zombies. Why is it never mentioned more?

punkmonkey22

Iceland is the place your looking for or Antarctica one of those two

anangrysoviet

You mean Greenland?

At Least There'd Be One In Every Town

Walmart.

I'll buy two months worth of food and water, and boards and nails to seal my house.

Unless the zombies are because of magic, their bodies will begin to break down in a few days from dehydration. Realistically, sheltering in place for a week would be more than enough to save yourself.

Lovebot_AI

Perhaps Even Better Than The Previous!

COSTCO.

Think about it lol...supplies, food, shelter. You could literally survive for years in a Costco.

They Can't Break The Ice

Everything around the line of russia Scandinavia. You can hunt but the zombies can't get there. They will freeze... Even if they are immortal: No moving=no biting

ShakerGER

Grab All The Essentials

First place I'd go would be the water/gas place down my street. Load up my car and drive back and forth for a while, until I had enough water and propane to last me a good long while.

Then I'd go to the hunting/camping store and buy what I could from there. Whatever is available.

Then I'd sit at home. Gated community, check. Bars on my first floor, check. Heavy triple locked metal door, check...

A Spot Built On History

Los Alamos, NM.

It was a Manhattan Project site for a reason.

It's isolated, there are only a few ways in, and also it's high and dry enough that there aren't mosquitoes.

ThatTallGirl

We All Have That One Friend. Right?

My neighbor's farm.

They have a garden, tons of animals, secured property and guns. They are also extremely tough. I'd head there immediately.

The Ocean Has Your Back

I'd go to an island in Maine.

Year-round source of fish, shellfish and birds, along with a short but productive growing season. Burn driftwood and dried seaweed for fuel. The coast is cooler in summer and warmer in winter than inland, so more comfortable than other locales.

Cold enough in winter to freeze zombies, so you can do clearing and foraging in winter.

Cut Yourself Off From The World

I'd take a ship, supplies and a group of people and i'd sail to an island. It would have to be big enough to do some farming and build a couple of houses and just sit out all the zombies. They'll have to run out eventually and that's when we'll get back to building civilization.

Perhaps The Only Time You Want To Go Back To High School

The local high school has spiked fences and metal shutters, as well as some solar power, plenty of indoor and outdoor space.

It's close enough to shops that supply runs would not be an issue, but not somewhat many people would go, meaning there'd be less people to argue about supplies.

Back On The Weapons

Stockpile food and medieval weapons and armour in Mont Saint-Michelle. From there and a big enough group you can organize raids on the mainland and gather supplies. If the group is small enough fishing+farmin on island can be enough. I have a little experience with longswords and know where to get manuals on sword and axe (more useful against zombies) usage against lightly armored foes (read zombies).

To get food and supplies I can use my savings and to get the medieval supplies it should be easy enough to raid a few small museums, as long as I don't get immediately caught there is no worry of police coming to catch me.

TL,DR: Find a small island with a plentiful source of food or highly defensble position.

Block All The Pathways

Go somewhere?

Ya scrubs.
Why do you think I live so high up? I'm just gonna go grocery shopping like mad and then steal all the shopping carts to block the stairwells.
What are my neighbors gonna think when they come home and the stairwells are all blocked? Well, they're gonna thank me, of course, once they use the elevator and are save in their apartments.
And this is how I saved everyone.

People Are Trying To Get Out, And You're Going In

...get sent to prison. You've gotta imagine between the armed guards, the defenses and, as a last resort, all the hardened criminals it would be one of the most secure places to be.

SPOILER ALERT: The Answer Is A Pawn Shop

Cash Converters.

  • The windows are barred up
  • They're usually in strip malls so close to food
  • There's always a sword there for some reason
  • And a sh-t load of books
  • Nobody expects you to be at Cash Converters

Cash Converters, man

DeedTheInky

What's a cash converter? Like pawn shop?

amatorsanguinis

It's a magical place where you convert old TVs into money until you've earned enough to convert your money into a sword.

H/T: Reddit

Have you ever been reading a book, watching a movie, or even sitting down for a fantastical cartoon and began to salivate when the characters dig into some doozy of a made up food?

You're not alone.

Food is apparently fertile ground for creativity. Authors, movie directors, and animators all can't help but put a little extra time and effort into the process of making characters' tasty delights mouthwatering even for audiences on the other side of the screen.

Read on for a perfect mixture of nostalgia and hunger.

AllWhammyNoMorals asked, "What's a fictional food you've always wanted to try?"

Some people were all about the magical foods eaten in the magical places. They couldn't help but wish they could bite into something with fantastical properties and unearthly deliciousness.

Nutritious

"Enchanted golden apple" -- DabbingIsSo2015

"The Minecraft eating sounds make me hungry" -- FishingHobo

"Gotta love that health regeneration" -- r2celjazz

"Pretty sure those are based off the golden apples that grant immortality. Norse mythology I think?" -- Raven_of_Blades

Take Your Pick

"Nearly any food from Charlie and the Chocolate factory" -- CrimsonFox100

"Came here to say snozzberries!" -- Utah_Writer

"Everlasting Gobstoppers #1, but also when they're free to roam near the chocolate river and the entire environment is edible." -- devo9er

Peak Efficiency

"Lembas" -- Roxwords

"The one that fills you with just a bite? My fat a** would be making sandwiches with two lembas breads and putting bacon, avocado and cheese inside. Then probably go for some dessert afterwards. No wonder why those elves are all skinny, eating just one measly bite of this stuff." -- sushister

Some people got stuck on the foods they saw in the cartoons they watched growing up. The vibrant colors, the artistic sounds, and the exaggerated movements all come together to form some good-looking fake grub.

The One and Only

"Krabby patty 🍔" -- Cat_xox

"And a kelp shake" -- titsclitsntennerbits

"As a kid I always pretended burgers from McDonalds were Krabby Patties, heck from time to time I still do for the nostalgia of it all. Many of my friends did the same thing." -- Thisissuchadragtodo

Cheeeeeeeeese

"The pizza from an extremely goofy movie. The stringy cheese just looked magical lol" -- ES_Verified

"The pizza in the old TMNT cartoon as well." -- gate_of_steiner85

"Only bested by the pizza from All Dogs Go to Heaven." -- Purdaddy

Get a Big Old Chunk

"Those giant turkey drumsticks in old cartoons that characters would tear huge chunks out of. Those things looked amazing, turkey drumsticks in real life suck and are annoying to eat."

-- Ozwaldo

Slurp, Slurp, Slurp

"Every bowl of ramen on any anime, ever." -- Cat_xox

"Studio Ghibli eggs and bacon" -- DrManhattan_DDM

"Honestly, any food in anime. I swear to god half the budget no matter what the studio goes into making the food look absolutely delicious." -- Viridun

Finally, some highlighted the things that aren't quite so far-fetched, but still far enough away that it's nothing we'll be eating anytime soon.

That tease can be enough to make your mouth water.

What's In It??

"Butter beer" -- Damn_Dog_Inappropes

"came here to say this. i was pretty disappointed with the universal studio version which was over the top sweet. it was more of a butterscotch root beer. i imagine butter beer to be something more like butter and beer, which wouldn't be crazy sweet, but would have a very deep rich flavor" -- crazyskiingsloth

Slice of the Future

"The microwave pizzas in back to the future two" -- biggiemick91

"I've been fascinated with those for years! They just look so good!" -- skoros

As Sweet As They Had

"The Turkish Delight from Lion Witch & Wardrobe. The real ones I had weren't bad but nothing special." -- spoon_shaped_spoon

"Came here to say this. I know it's a real thing, but I always imagined that it must have been amazing to betray your siblings over." -- la_yes

"You're used to freely available too sweet sweets. For a WW2 era schoolkid, it would have represented all the sweets for an entire year." -- ResponsibleLimeade



Here's hoping you made it through the list without going into kitchen for some snack you didn't actually need.

When a movie rakes in a ton of cash at the box office, the studio that made it has only one thing on its mind: "How do we keep shaking this money tree?"

Unfortunately, that means they make sequels, sometimes sequels on sequels on sequels.

Oftentimes I like to do my best Ghostface impression and aggressively ask people what their favorite scary movies are. Because I personally have a lot! At the same time, I'm also terrified that at any point, I could end up getting my head punched off by Jason Vorhees (Part 8 of the series--best one IMO).

I hate hypocrites. They are the bane of my existence. All you have to do is stand behind your words. How hard is that? You said them. I especially get peeved when people bloviate on a topic and condemn and holler but then when it comes to them doing it... silence.

Redditor u/ErrForceOnes wanted to know about the moments people chose to curiously "pay no mind" by asking... What is a GIANT hypocrisy that no one seems to mind?
