One Step Closer to the Zombie Protocols

As you may know, a part of the Zombie Protocols involves a defense-in-depth strategy combined with superior mobility to both fend off hordes of the ravenous dead, as well as escape to safer areas should it become necessary.

Technologically, the Zombie Safehouse is currently practical - a house on 40' greased telephone poles is, after all, quite simple - albeit exotic.

Thus far, however, the Zombie Escape Zeppelin (ZomEsZep) has been impractical. But now, we are one step closer - the personal "skyacht" seen here: http://www.engadget.com/2006/08/07/the-skyacht-practical-personal-blimp/ allows for an individual LTA craft that operates on hot air, rather than helium. At present it only carries one person - but scaling it up to include staterooms and a fantail deck with leather club chairs, bookshelves, servant's quarters and a mahogany bar is a matter of scale rather than design. Technologically, solar cells that will power the craft indefinitely are all that remains to be developed.

Let us hope that the Zombie Appocalypse doesn't occur before the requisite breakthroughs. And that I have the means to acquire the ZomEsZep, when it is possible.

Laying in adequate supplies to survive the Appocalypse is certainly an important element in preparation. The biggest problem is fresh, clean water.

You're making me want to steal my son's Zombie Survival Guide. Just last week we were having a debate over what is the best weapon to use against them. There seems to be alot of pros and cons to just about every one.

Primary: Shotgun. Secondary: Katana

Some would argue for the shovel or chainsaw as secondary, and I see the merits of both. But I'll stick with what I know is capable of decapitation with a minimum of fuss or effort, and is equally of use against other humans - which, as we've discussed, is half the problem.

"Are you sure you're going to lower the ladder to your girlfriend, stranded below the Zombie Fortress? The zombies are awfully close, and we have a strict "no ladder-lowering' policy."

"I'm sure."

"I can't dissuade you, no matter what?"

"No way, that's the woman I love. I have to save her."

"Regrettable."
