Bizarre

October is 'zombie preparedness month'

Kansas governor Sam Brownback signed the peculiar proclamation as a fun way to tackle natural disasters.
What better way to prepare for the possibility of a natural disaster than to pretend that you are and your family are getting ready for a zombie apocalypse - or at least that's the idea behind the bizarre new concept being put forward by authorities in Kansas this month.

"If youíre prepared for zombies, youíre prepared for anything," said Brownback.

"Although an actual zombie apocalypse will never happen, the preparation for such an event is the same as for any disaster: make a disaster kit, have a plan and practice it."
When asked what he would do in the event of a zombie outbreak the governor had surprisingly come up with a plan that wouldn't have looked out of place in an episode of The Walking Dead.

"My son and I talked about this," he said. "It would be best to go to my dadís farm and get on a combine. Then you could move through - hopefully youíve got enough fuel."

Hopefully he won't be needing to try out his plan for real anytime soon.

Why October? Zombies will never attack in October, just before Halloween (Zombie Christmas) .

I think the whole zombie fad represents an unconscious human fear that we will be taken over by our technology and rendered 'dead and soul-less'. Just my personal thinking on the matter. Well what do you know...just found this interesting article: http://nofilmschool.com/2013/06/zombie-love-obsessed-eat-brains

That is an interesting theory, Lilly. It is similar to the UFO scares in the 1950's caused by the fear of the spread of communism.

While this does sound rather a fun way to prepare for natural disasters, why not instead just do proper training? You know, like what to do in case of wild fires, floods, the sort of thing a region should be ready for, not zombies? Or was Max Brooks' work, The Zombie Survival Guide not a joke as we all thought it was...
