95% just because I don't own a freakin gun

In reality I would dominate a zombie invasion. I've seen so many zombie movies I know exactly what to do by now. Those who are planning on barricading themselves in malls for example, are screwed, because zombies are relentless, and they always, always find a way in. The key is to keep moving from hideout to hideout.

My personal favorites are 28 Days and 28 Weeks later, I think they are the best movies made when it comes to zombies. Then I like Shawn of the Dead, a Zom-Com,and Night of the Living Dead, basically all the George A Romero movies, he has made like, 50.

Max Brooks. And the bad thing about the book is that, while very in-depth, it's not funny. Doesn't even try to be.

I got 48%. I'd say all I need to do is learn how to use a gun, and I'd be fine.

Unless you have an excellent aim, a gun will be pointless to have if zombies started to appear. You have to destroy or remove the head/brain, so unless you can get a head shot on every zombie and your only weapon is a gun, you're f*cked. I'd much rather have a claymore or a katana or a collection of old vinyls, like in Shaun of the Dead.

goodlluck finding good barricades tho.

i mean a mall has everything you could possibly think of. Next best thing would be like a K Mart. They are all built thick and i'm not even sure Zombies could get thru even the thick glass entrances, unless they were the type of zombies that knew to smash something into it.

the run as fast as humans type of zombies seem unrealistic tho. I mean i can see zombies that go straight after peoples brains for whatever reason, but if they are dead and have no brains and deteriorated muscles, i don't know how they could run so fast like in those more recent zombie movies.

My odds would be pretty good. I've got a decent gun collection and a wife and son who both know how to shoot pretty well. I think I could score a head shot 9 out of 10 times. I live out in the country so I'm not near the huge population centers that would quickly become zombified.

My favorite zombie movie is Night of the Living Dead. I saw that when I was about 10 (probably not a good idea but my parents were fairly permissive). I've had zombie nightmares ever since. The scary thing about zombies is, there's no escape. Sure you might dodge the first one, outrun the second one, but there's always going to be more and when you eventually get cornered, you get killed in the worst possible way. And there's no reasoning with them. You can't bargain your way out of it or beg for mercy. They don't care. They're just going to eat you.

The crack about going to the Hornets chatroom is HILARIOUS!
