CDC admits to a Zombie Apocalypse

Get A Kit,    Make A Plan, Be Prepared. emergency.cdc.gov…well…Hell’s Horse on a Pogo Stick… first the Zombie Apocalypse…now the Rapture must be coming too!

…there’s nothing wrong with being a little bit…ready 😉

So we have the Zombie Apocalypse AND the Rapture…personally I find an incredible amount of amusement in both. The Big Z.A. is an adventure waiting to happen, and there is no end of content and incredibly bad film to make sure you stay acclimated, ready and entertained by even the notion that it might happen. And the Rapture…well…here’s a thought…all the people convinced that their virtuous destiny is to be scooped up and delivered to a higher plane. Honestly…I am pretty cool with either. I can joke about both on an incredibly regular basis, and if either actually happens, well…I am totally okay with being left in what can only be considered a target rich environment where the only people left around are more than capable of surviving without money, politicians, taxes, and cellphones. Lets just say I am a glass half full kind of guy eh?

SO…yeah…here’s a quick start on the Big ZA.

The Zombie Apocalypse
That’s right…the CDC finally admitted to it today HERE that we do in fact need to get a grip…and start preparing.

If you do anything…at least RTFM!!!! Get your copy of The Zombie Survival Guide. This quick manual will get some of the kinks out of your rough draft on how to survive!

If you haven’t already found out…there are some really good websites out there to help you prepare as well.

Jenny Lawson (aka TheBloggess.com) usually hooks us up with little tips and insights on how to cope. If you’re not reading her posts…you’re probably going to die. The Zombie Survival Wiki is a huge resource on everything regarding zombies and how to survive them. If you don’t check out this site…you’re also probably going to die. The Center for Disease Control even has a few tips. Although if you don’t read this one, you’re probably so NOT entertaining that other more experienced people will feed you to zombies, and thereby still going to die.

The Rapture
Somewhere along the way in our heads…we were as a society convinced by someone else that the end of days was somehow true. Somewhere along the way, we were duped into being fearful of death. The ultimate price to pay for living outside those boundaries. Your soul. So we (the smart ones) create this endgame scenario that according to its adherents is always only a day away that feeds on your fear, letting you not necessarily believe, but act in accordance just in case. Yep. That’s actually most of us in some form or fashion.

That big day is going to come and if you didn’t listen to your sermons and donate at least 10% of everything…when the Rapture comes…you get stuck with the Zombies…because every one else is apparently going to be saved by an all-powerful deity whose sole love is for a world chuck full of aggressive angsty people that like going to war for no reason.

…or not. Personally…I think it’s distressing that so many people build their lives around some intangible looming death. But after spending so many years trying to reason it out…now it’s just plain funny. I found a little humor in the pic tot he right…and had to share. This is courtesy of Skippy from Skippyslist.com and if you want a copy to send to a friend, go HERE.

The news has sensationalized this crap…and the theme of responsible journalism has managed to evolve into incredibly biased (or censured) media outlets. I am not going to link them because i draw the line on sensationalizing people fears.

Anyhow…that’s the fist in many a new rant. I know it’s been a while and I can tell I am out of practice. Feel free to comment and berate 😉

Bleh.

So I’ve come to another realization.

Not only is there so much stupid in the world that it’s overwhelming.

Not only does stupid run rampant and far too often unchecked, prevented, or corrected…

Not only can I not keep up with it in its…we’ll call it grandeur (for lack of a simpler word to spare)

…on more occasions than I am comfortable with…I am a part of the problem instead being part of the solution.

I am sure most of my friends will screenshot this in order to make sure they have proof I offered this unto the never-forgetting interwebs, but I don’t mind the occasional self-admission and it’s not like tons about me isn’t already online. 😉

Now, because I have a BIG GINORMOUS rule about getting too personal about my friends and loved ones, that is about all the detail I’ll be fessing up. If you’re a close friend, you already have such a vast repertoire of incidents and stories regarding my antics that another one is almost blasé and you can certainly rest easy knowing I have another notch on my belt.

Now if you happen to be a casual reader and wondering how far down the rabbit hole my life traverses…

This time…I didn’t drive off the side of a mountain at 70mph in a truck.

This time…I didn’t go camping, get drunk, and introduce all my friends to the term “skyclad” using myself as a point of reference at the campfire for everyone to see.

This time…I didn’t get lost after taking a walk in a neighborhood 30 miles away from my casa after my own birthday party.

This time I managed to screw up a damn good friendship, and I am feeling like absolute shit over it.



Good Mormon!

*grin*

Yeah…This isn’t about Mormons. (Damn You Auto Correct!)
If this was a text from yours truly, you would know that’s me saying “Good Morning!” My wonderful iPhone loves that phrase, and honestly I am tired of retyping it.

Progress? Here?! …Maybe?
I am about 2/3 through another installment of No More Stupid. It’s going well, and maybe if I had more time outside my 9-5 I might actually get some real content written, but for now, I am content to helping regular people make it through the crazy mess of everything online. That said, if you have questions about “stuff” online, leave them in the comments and I’ll try to throw you a bone.

Ok ….so…If you’re new here, I will warn you. I am kind of an ass. I link TONS of stuff in here, but I don’t mark the links, so you have to hover over the link with your mouse to find them.

It’s my idea of providing a learning experience and being me at the same time.

I have this friend @thebloggess and she’s incredibly awesome and she spends her days being funny and inadvertently teaching other people that they can be better too.

There’s a problem though, she’s having an incredible time dealing with Rheumatoid Arthritis. So much so that she’s looking for other people that have had to work through this and compare notes so that she can make sure she’s left no stone unturned.

This is the link to the article she wrote. While I don’t share the same type of arthritis I am keenly aware of what she’s going through so if you’re suffering from or experienced RA please compare notes, I think it might mean the world to her.

That’s about it today. Be well and throw lots of snowballs at innocent bystanders for me!!!
