The zombie apocalypse is going to happen. It’s an inevitability we all know in our heart of hearts. I don’t have the foresight needed to know when, where, or how it will happen, just that it will happen, eventually.
Are you prepared? Or are you, like so many other ignoramuses, completely blanking the impending danger from your mind? Wake up and smell the corpses, dear boys and girls. And when you have finished, take part in this week’s We Ask You.
Survival At All Costs
We want to know, How Would You Survive The Zombie Apocalypse?
We are especially interested in hearing about what technology you would use to survive the zombie apocalypse, what with MakeUseOf being a technology blog and all. However, we also value honesty above all else, so if your first instinct is to run then so be it.
However, at some point you have to stop running. Or hiding. Or doing anything else passive and therefore extremely dull. Which is the point at which our ears prick up and we actually start paying attention to what you have to say for yourself.
Guns are pretty much a prerequisite for any successful fight against an undead horde. But how would you improve your chances of shooting some zombie scum dead? Think outside the box and let us know what pieces of technology you would use to aid your survival.
Perhaps your humble smartphone would come in handy (assuming the infrastructure survived the outbreak)? Or perhaps an army of drones fitted with weaponry is more your style? Or some wearable technology programmed to notify you when you’re in danger?
Perhaps you’re more practical than simply out for blood. In which case you may want to consider using solar panels, a water purification system, plenty of torches, or a longwave radio. They may be a little boring, but they could mean the difference between life and death.
No suggestion is too big or too small, too remarkable or too ridiculous. We’ll take them all.
We Need You!
All comments will be read and most will be replied to, before the responses are turned into a full article. Those readers providing the best comments will thanked by name, receiving our extreme and everlasting gratitude for their efforts.
We Ask You is a column dedicated to crowdsourcing the wisdom of MakeUseOf readers. This column is nothing without you, as MakeUseOf is nothing without you.
NB: And if you haven’t already guessed by now, this paranoid rant about the end of the world being nigh is meant to be taken with a pinch of salt. The author doesn’t really believe a zombie apocalypse is just around the corner. That would be madness. However, he does still want you to answer the question. In fact, he demands you comply or he’ll eat your brains at his earliest convenience.
