New course offers how to tackle a zombie

38 posts in this topic

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!

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.

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.

Take out the word "zombie" and insert any other catastrophic scenario: pandemic, nuclear blast, no fuel, no food or water, etc. The point is that you need to understand how to survive, at least in the short term. I think it sounds like a great course for people who are too domesticated to understand that should TSHTF they can't simply sit idly by and wait for someone to rescue them. The tragedy that was Katrina illustrates this clearly.

exactly. i think the course is great and a lot of the young people (including myself) would probably be screwed if anything like that ever happened in our area. everybody relies too much on their government or military to provide and protect them and that weakens us as individuals. so i think it is a good idea. the zombie thing is probably just to lure people in.

I think they need to include a free Mental Evaltuation with this course!

Because 2 days is enough to teach you stealth, throwing hatches, shooting bows, using swords effectively, making proper fire, finding clean water and in general survive a huge zombie wave...sure.

I love it when people take any article about zombies seriously,Get over the fact that these sci-fi monsters will never see the light of day.
