No......this it too cool. 8)

Thank you.....going to check it out now.


PS: Next day......hehehe just bought it. This book purports to teach one how to survive a zombie attack.
I will read it and learn how to circumvent all attempts to escape evil zombie-type snares.
just like in a dream
you'll open your mouth to scream
and you won't make a sound

you can't believe your eyes
you can't believe your ears
you can't believe your friends
you can't believe you're here

It has some good advice, but a lot of stuff that I inherantly disagree with.

For example, it purports motorcycles to be the supreme vehicle... which is only true in a case by case basis. IE, for escaping a city where traffic jams become a problem... a motorcycle is obviously a good way to go, but on the open road you cant bring much with you, and you might be better off with something that can carry more stuff (and gets better gas mileage.)

A lot of common sense stuff... Travel with a group, sleeping shifts, saving ammunition, etc.

All in all, the book didnt really teach me anything I didnt already know.

good book but...

good book, but it left out some things- like how to deal with the demon possessed kinda zombies (more active and arcane displays of extreme violence)
or the fun you can have with a zombie hoard, rooftop access, a deep sea fishing rod, an eight pound sledge hammer, and a case of beer.

Ahem......where exactly is it you live?
Because my zombie hoard and I probably need to stay out of your way.
On a serious note, I liked the book, but it had some serious weak spots......
which of course just made a demon possessed zombie, such as myself, like it even more.  :twisted:

Who needs a zombie survival guide when you live in New Orleans during Mardi Gras.Zombie hordes have nothing compared to the hordes of drunken,bead wearing frat boys and Brittny wannabee ho's stumblin and pukin down Bourbon Str.
It was only because of the rain and chaos mages like Chicken zombie and myself that prevented the mindless horde from  creating a fratboy apocalyse

That's nothing compared to the Zombies down in Port-au-Prince.

Wha?  Do you mean to tell me Cheney finally went and *had* a fatal heart attack and nobody said anything?  So much for the media having a liberal bias! :twisted:
