How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse

Despite the fact that zombies are fictional and the "rules" for zombies vary with the writers' whims, there are constant discussions about how to survive when the apocalypse comes and the world is full of corpses trying to eat you. A recent Tumblr discussion had some pretty good ideas.

1. Wear a suit of armor. You may have to make your own.

2. Increase your speed with a bicycle. They are quiet and require no fuel.

There are some other ideas in the discussion you can peruse here. Imagine if The Walking Dead were to use these ideas- the survival rate might go up, but the show would look a lot like a Monty Python skit.

Terrible Idea about the armor. Unless it's super lightweight. During an apocalypse, every ounce you carry has to be counted. Same thing applies to people who go hunting in the mountains or any rough terrain. They literally weigh energy bars and make everything perfectly efficient in their backpacks.

Max Brookks' definitive Zombie Survival Guide also discusses the advantages of bikes- along with what's already noted, they are easier to repair than a car, and if you have to, you can carry them over/around obstacles. I suspect they don't get used much in zombie movies because it IS hard to look cool riding one.
