Survival is often a matter of luck and will as it is anything else. Someone who isn't ready to die and is willing to do what is necessary to survive will stand a better chance than those who do not have the will or determination. Being a triathlete won't mean a whole lot if you aren't willing to shove a broken shovel handle through your wife's skull when she rises from the dead and tries to eat you.





Tobias, the fat kid in Fear The Walking Dead had the foresight to gather food, the smarts to know that they should have run from Principal Obama and aggressive mind set to attack when push came to shove. Had he known that you have to destroy the brain and chosen to arm himself with something more than a paring knife then he could have resolved the situation. I think that he would have been suited to survive.


 



Then again, if you find yourself hemmed in then you could be a Ninja SEAL and you'd still be fucked.

If zombies attack where the fuck are you going to run to?  I think it'd be best to have a fortified position.  Maybe...I dunno this sheeit.  lol

Not fat.

But I would be the guy that would die of an infected paper cut I got from opening a box of ammo or something stupid like that.

Your ammo will eventually run out, so your brain will get ate just like the rest of us.

I have no brains, so I would be safe. Unfortunately it would only be me and politicians left on the planet, so I'd probably off myself anyway

I don't think I understand. How does one "run out of ammo"? I carry around enough to fight my way back to the ammo fort in the basement, where there are more bullets than there are people [potential zombies] in my town.

Okay let's assume the half of us who aren't in the military and can't run a quarter mile manage to hide in our cellars full of mac and cheese until the initial chaos is over. We were talking about the fat high school kid in Fear the Walking Dead in the other thread. Would a bunch of us be better off not being able to buy big macs and cheetos and not being able to support ourselves sitting at a desk (or courtroom or tractor trailer etc) all day sufficiently that it would outweigh the chances of being bit (those zombies are pretty pokey), dying of appendicitis or having a rotted out bridge fall from under or on us?

Without proper medical care people will just not live as long for exactly the reasons you listed. People get appendicitis, gall stones, dental problems and whole list of other things that WILL kill you without medical treatment. It would go back to the way it was when people typically only lived into their 30's or 40's, only people would not be being reborn to keep things going, so it would mean the end of us a few decades down the road. But you could survive until the zombies had for the most part rotted away to being a non-threat.

I didn't even count that in my weapons collection! As it happens, I have my 23oz. milled-face Vaughn California Framer with me as well. I could smash a pile of zombie faces with that thing.

I rule the high ground in my condo complex.  Easy enough to block off the two stairwells and survive unless the zombies learn how to operate an elevator, but I'm guessing that the power would be off anyhow.

I'd be OK for a few days. I've got a few guns and some ammo that should last a couple of days. After that I'm either zombie food or eating the last bullet.

Don't leave home for anything.  You should have 3 months of food on hand at all times anyway.

Stay quiet, don't go outside and you should be fine til the horde moves on.

I would have tons of 22 ammo, high cap mags and several Ruger MK2s and a 10/22 all with silencers. I would go anywhere I wanted to and devastate the fucking zombies as I went. Generally speaking, I would board a large sailboat fully stocked with sammich making materials, good looking womens as crew. I would wait it out offshore.
Link Posted: 8/31/2015 5:30:47 PM EDT
I think Most would be fine.. Some would die due to body failure, stupidity, murder or random chance.

Same as in any other disaster.

The next generation after would have it much harder, no first world tech to support them during childhood.
Link Posted: 8/31/2015 5:30:48 PM EDT
The American fast food diet doesn't promote healthy eating.
The stress alone would cause many  peoples eating habits to alter even if food were readily available.
Add in having to walk or bike places they sued to drive or use mass transit for....
yeah, in a perverse way it would be doing some people a favor

Throw some furnishings out on the front yard, set your house on fire (and then put it out - just so it looks scorched), and spray paint "TWO BODIES" on the front door.  Make it look like it's already been looted or like there might be zombies inside.  Then maintain blackout conditions and keep a look out.

That's just a minimum amount.  It doesn't take much space to keep 3 months worth of food.

I’m confident I could last with my preps and stores. Especially if we’re talking walking dead zombies. 28 days later zombies are a whole other ball game.

After seeing how many guy’s don’t even have their red dot sighted in starting a carbine class I have my doubts about fellow rifleman.

In Dawn of the Dead i believe the zombies could smell the yummy smell of live brains, that's why there were thousands of them waiting outside that mall for them, they will still be there after 3 months when your food runs out.
