Zombie Enthusiasts Reveal What No One Seems To Consider For An Outbreak

The Zombie Apocalypse is upon us! That has been everyone's belief since the premiere of 'The Walking Dead!' Ever since AMC started filling our brains with Zombie culture it feels like civilization has begun serious preparation for an undead mutiny. Which actually does raise some interesting questions.

Redditor _drflanigan inquired.... What is something that no one seems to consider in a zombie apocalypse? **_Just in case... how would life change? What would we do? Will Andrew Lincoln come save us all?**

ALWAYS HAVE A WATER FILTER...

Safe drinking water. I've seen in zombie movies/shows where the characters drink muddy stagnant lake water. I feel like you are just asking to die or become extremely ill of dysentery.

MY EYES!!

As zombies gradually lose weight their pants should come off!

THAT GOT A RESPONSE!

...and now I have an image stuck in my head of a horde of zombies tripping over their pants.

Thanks.

OK LANCE ARMSTRONG!

Bicycles.

The gasoline will go bad in a few years and we'll all be reliant on bicycles to outrun the shambling damned.

A CITY ON A HILL...

Oil platforms. Anyone who've been to one can confirm: Those things are floating cities.

WINTER IS COMING! THANK GOD!

Most zombies won't be able to make it through a winter. Their blood would freeze and they would not be able to move.

AHOY MATEY!

Boats.

Wanna survive the zombie apocalypse? Steal a yacht. Zombies don't swim. Even in the fiction where they can survive ocean pressures and walk on the sea floor out to islands, they can't swim up to boats that are far enough away from land.

Personally, I think water-world was just a sequel to a zombie flick.

FINALLY A BITE OF THE BIG APPLE!!

Housing would finally be affordable in New York again.

MURPHY'S LAW...

[rebelmouse-image 18980293 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The poop will probably hit the fan at a very inconvenient time. People spend a large part of their waking life at work. You won't be home, surrounded by your supplies and weapons when you find out zombies are attacking. You'll probably be at work, surrounded by your useless colleagues with safety scissors as the most effective weapon in your grasp.

FOLLOW THE MATH...

[rebelmouse-image 18980294 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The zombie, as a species, is designed for failure. Its chief food source, the living human, is also its only method of reproduction, and its number one predator. That predator is smarter, faster, more mobile, probably stronger, and more creative than it ever can be. And it can be taught, in a ridiculously short time, to kill a zombie from 50-100 yards away, with reasonable reliability.

NATURE WILL SAVE US....

i think bugs would be a problem. zombies are rotting corpses with flies buzzing around them all day. If a fly eats zombie flesh, presumably that fly turns into a zombie and could infect a healthy person.

It shouldn't be hard to try and stay healthy.

Our past is chock full of "life lessons" that are actually just crap. It's easy to spoon-feed children drivel. They're sponges ready to absorb.

Then those children become adults that require rewiring.

Between culture changes and generations of upheaval, there is a lot that we are left to examine when out in the world. Look at where we are as a society right now. We are stuck in the throes of a culture war stemming from generational misinformation.

So where do we begin?

Redditor Baby_Bella_XX wanted to discuss the information we thought we understood as kids that might require an update. They asked:

What have you had to unlearn from your childhood?

It's important to keep your mind healthy as you age, learning new things and trying new activities out.

Some people are just plain nasty, that is a sad fact. There is true evil in this world, and we see it on display every single day. It can often make one lose all hope in "humanity."

At my core, I try to believe that most of us have good hearts, that are connected to kind souls. But my beliefs are tested almost hourly.

One of the scariest things is trying to pinpoint whether or not most of these people are just callous and rude or, quite possibly, they simmering sociopaths, destined to be the villain in a Dateline NBC or podcast episode.

Let's compare notes.

Redditor SmokeAndCannon wanted to hear about the people we wish we could've avoided in person and online, by asking:
