…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.
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.

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 😉
