What would you do in the event of a zombie apocalypse? Have you ever wondered how you would navigate a band of lone survivors in an earth populated by six billion flesh-eating creatures ravenous for your squishy brains?

For those who have not fully considered these quandaries, a group in Portland, Oregon is offering an intensive two-day curriculum to prepare the unprepared.

Viewers of the recent slew of zombie films, such as Dawn Of The Dead, Curse Of The Zombie and Shaun Of The Dead might of course think they already know of course (you use a cricket bat, right?).

But for the rest of us help is at hand. Phew!

Sounds more like a fun weekend than a "course".

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Champagne in one hand - strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

This is actually very clever marketing.  I personally have only a mild interest in survival training, but if it involves a weekend with zombies, I would pay for that.

Don't know if it's because I'm older and have no kids to fill me in, so could someone please explain to me what this Zombie obsession is all about. Seems it's everywhere nowdays. Where does it come from, what has triggered it?

Makes as much sense as any other religious studies.  I'm enrolling in Advanced Goblins 101.

Zombies have always been a religious threat by prophecy

It's just that it has been hyped in films and games like never before lately, but since you mention this about prophecy I can see that this "end of the world" talk going around last years can trigger this "zombie outbreak".

The "interwebs" are controlled by fat teenage boys with no girlfriend.  That's where it came from.
