hve been forced to ask this by dp and lodger.

If zombies happened what would you do?

I don't have one - apparently this is unusual Have never even considered it.

SO do you have a zombie plan?

I could tell you....but then I'd have to beat you over the head with my rotten arm kill you

Bump - mumsnet has gone a bit mad and it's time to remember some good stuff

Does anyone else's DP consider how "zombie proof" a house is before you think about buying it? Apparently it's very important to analyse the potential to defend it from zombies. From both the quick, leaping type of zombie (see I Am Legend) and the slow shambling ones (i.e. Shaun of the dead)...

He is quite obsessed with it, actually. I bought him the "Zombie Survival Guide" for valentines day this year (romantic, I know...) and he has studied it with a rather disturbing degree of concentration...

You are all talking about zombies but really it is just other angry, hungry humans you need to worry about

LOL

as a new poster, I was interested to see what this 'zombie plan'thing was all about! Having read a few pages I very subtly asked DH assuming he would think I was mental... He started saying something about heading to the gym and surrounding himself with treadmills so the zombies would never reach us/ wear themselves out!!! Lets hope we dont get a power cut....!!

Joined MN and came across mentions of the 'zombie plan' had to read it and now sucked in !! Now looking at house, neighbourhood, neighbours and even pets in a new and suspicious light. Yeek!

Has anyone seen the Zombie house yet? I think I need one.....

Clearly, quite clearly,a Zombie virus is a distinct possibility IMO.In preparation all Zombie films must be watched for tips ("Dead Set" and "28 Weeks Later" highly reccommended)Never ever let yourself get in a position where you are trapped.First priority is to arm yourself.And remain calm so you can make swift and informed decisions. Just so I may further hone my ZP, is the book I"m looking for in the library catalogue "Zombie Survival Plan" or "Complete Zombie Survival Plan"?

Quite liked the set up in The Walking Dead ,camping out (at least until there was a mass invasion!).WildSeahorses your Dp sounds like a very sensible and level headed sort of chap - what commendable forethought to assess a potential home"s vulnerability to Zombie attack.I still maintain that it is vital for there to be a reliable escape route for any building to be a viable option. Hope this was considered.

I asked DH if he had a ZP and his reply was 'No, do we need one?' And then in all seriousness told me we're more likely to need a plan for the meltdown of the financial markets.
He has his priorities all wrong IMO

Oh God.. I am reviving a 6 year old Classic Thread in view of the fact that there are TOO now "modern Zombies" which Sophable (ah Sophable) claimed could not be! The ones on World War Z are extremely nippy AND resourceful! And those on Walking Dead.. less nippy.. but v persistant!

Sometimes these things need updating smile

Also.. I am on this thread as my Old Self <nostalgia>. I used to be quite funny! <wonders what happened>

i have a zombie plan! i need one... zombies are my biggest fear

i lasted for 30 mins in the cinema watching WWZ. had to leave as i was shaking so much and i burst into tears and when dh and i went outside, he said i was really pale blush over a week later and im still not sleeping properly. though i was told the "cure" was in cardiff... which is good news as thats where i am grin

watched dead set when it was on tv a few years ago and i had nightmares for 3 1/2 months shock

they are fast feckers in wwz! if they are like that... then i will be killing myself as i will have no chance of survival and i dont want to be a zombie sad

I once asked my emergency planning colleagues at work if we had a zombie plan (we have plans for everything else!). Bless them, they did at least humour me!

The Centre for Disease Control in America has a zombie plan complete with marketing materials (can't link Soz am on phone). They use it as a tongue in cheek way of informing ppl how to plan for an emergency like flooding or tornados. Google it, its brilliant!

Mine is to sit in the garden and wait for whatever it is to come and get me.

Can zombies un lock doors, or run fast? Oo scary thoughts now

Celador Mon 08-Jul-13 14:21:15

I'm a bit disappointed with DH. I asked him, in all seriousness, what our plan was, only to be met with a bemused stare and accusations of 'reading mumsnet again'.

The best he could do was suggest using 'a selection of knives from the kitchen' along with the power of his own farts to escape out of town with DS and I.

I've resorted to watching Shaun of the Dead to get some pointers.

Thanks Hecsy! It's good to know that we can rely on the CDC where DH has so clearly failed.

Some good tips there.

M0naLisa Mon 08-Jul-13 23:32:05

yes DH has a Zombie plan hmm

Celador Mon 08-Jul-13 23:47:56

What is it?

KatoPotato Mon 08-Jul-13 23:54:28

DH says he used to have one, and it involved tooling up at B&Q, making a heavy weight on a rope and just continually dropping it from a great height. This was based on old school non running zombies.

Apparently me and DS have ruined his zombie fantasy now, and hrs no longer excited about the invasion. When pressed he said that I would 'probably die at your work'

Lovely

This gets a lot of attention in our house. I have given it hours of thought and the kids have all got on board. Today, for example, we went swimming to a lake in a valley between 2 high hills, on one of the hills there are about 4 houses. Anyway, we had a heated discussion about which house we'd choose to live in come the Zombie Apocalypse, paying particular attention to defense, ability to grow crops, detect zombies and so on. Luckily we live close to an area suggested on the zombie map, and I have worked out several ways to get there from here. Hey, it's my hobby and I'm not ashamed. And don't get me started on why I did the Couch to 5k
