With all the zombie posts, shows and internet stuff I can't help but wonder this. Would you ever think of gearing up for an apocolypse? Not just zombie's but any type, whether it be chemical warfare or any other type of disaster which would force you into survival mode. DH and I have thought many times of stocking up our basement with water, non-perishable food items, cleaning supplies, medical treatments,guns, ammo and other survival things. I even want DH to teach me to shoot, he is a former marine so no worries about him having to shoot. I know zombies are VERY unlikely but even in the case of chemical warfare or such preparing is a GOOD thing. Have you thought about it? Done it? If so, tell us what you have stocked up and how you have prepared.

Zombies are not fucking real.

We keep a supply of food and fuel because of natural disasters that can occur but nothing in world ending proportions.

Storm and power outage preparedness is a good idea.  We had no power for 6 weeks due to hurricane Rita.

I have a hand pump for the well, containers for water storage, non-perishable foods, most of which can be eaten with little preperation, cast iron pots for cooking on fire, extra of all meds, first aid equipment, diapers, clothes for rough weather, solar powered flashlight/radio/phone charger, bleach, reference books (gardening, natural medicines, safe "outhouse" practices, food prep, etc), fuel for vehicle, some more too......

The undead kind? Of course not, but the CDC has reports of 2 countries with zombie like tendencies. One bug takes over your brain, impairs mobility and causes an insatiable appetite. The other, the Kuru virus, causes poor coordination, personality changes, loss of speech, open sores and a cannibalistic like nature. Hmmmm....

Kuru actually results from cannibalism in the first place, specifically from eating brains. Don't eat human brains, you won't get kuru.
