Mood - Normal

Last night, after watching ‘Diary of the Dead’, an American film by George A. Romero — I started thinking to myself, “What happens if a zombie infection occurs? How can sheep and other living beings survive this apocalypse?”

You know, when the ‘dead’ walks and feeds on living beings — What if this shit really happen one day? <≥A≤>/ ↓

For instance, on one lovely, sunny afternoon, you are at a park with your girlfriend, sharing an ice-cream and all of the sudden, a commotion roars across the both of you. People screaming at the top of their lungs and runs amok in fright. Curious, you and your girl cautiously take a few steps forward to find a flock of bloody people limping unusually. Some bodies are lying on the ground, lifeless, while what seems to be a ‘live’ human, is feasting on the fearful hot dog vendor. Then slowly, you digest the situation and realize that you have seen this on the cinema’s screen.

“This is incredulous”, you mutter under your breath. (Or if you’re a Malaysian, you might say, “Babi betul…”)

From there, what would you do? <.___.>{?]

Before we get around to answering that, let’s talk a little about zombies and their attributes.

* Zombies: Beings (humans, animals..) that are supposedly dead but still living and walking the earth. They are also known as ‘The Undead’ and ‘ The Walking Dead.’

There are a variation of sources on how zombies come about. In the folklore and mythology saying, zombies are made through spells like voodoo in which a sorcerer grants life to a corpse in exchange for his labor. Despite his resurrection, he is still lifeless and do as foretold. Another type of zombie is the restless, once-upon-a-time living beings that continues to walk above the surface with the help of spiritual or supernatural forces. They will live until they accomplish their mission or purpose.

Those are zombies in the folklore and mythology concept which resurrects through supernatural means. The kind of zombie apocalypse I’m referring to is the modern type that are often portrayed as mindless, flesh-eating — which can only be killed by putting a bullet in the head–  zombies. The type that can infect other living creatures and convert them into their kind as well. “Hey! Join the party!” *Bites*

… I hope I’ve successfully articulated my point by now. <´•__•`>lll

So back to the main question… By whatever means, virus outbreak or so, what do you think you can do to survive this horror?

If you want to know what I think, well — I watched zombie movies like ‘Night of the Living Dead’, ‘Dawn of the Dead’, ‘Resident Evil’, ‘Quarantine’ and many more. And I must say it’s quite saddening because in this sort of situation, it’s very hard to win because when the infection grows, chances of surviving are as thin as paper.

I really wish I can say, “I’ll load myself with firearms, just like the movies, and barricade myself in some place safe. Then, play a game of sniping from the rooftop until a chopper comes to my rescue.” But unfortunately, I live in Malaysia and reality speaking — we’ve got no damn gun stores along our streets! It is illegal to keep guns in your house here to begin with!

So yea, if there is a zombie apocalypse in Malaysia — We are doom for extinction! <`A´>

(Laughs nervously)

Ok, seriously — How to survive in a zombie infection situation…?

Well, I will have to go with Dawn of the Dead’s strategy. The survivors barricade themselves inside a deserted shopping mall, which I think is a good place because there’s food, drinks and lots of equipments that can be useful. Also, security cameras to monitor other parts of the building.

In the movie, the escape plan is to make their way to a boat and sail across the sea where the zombies can’t reach them. Sounds like a good idea..And it will be provided the zombies can’t swim. <^-^>lll

(Laughs) I guess if such disaster happens, I would probably resort to this strategy, after assessing other possible solutions of course. Hopefully I don’t die so soon because according to the Facebook’s quiz result, sheep’d be one of the first to die. (Cries) <;__;>

Sucks…That’s why sheep is posting this entry in hopes of discussing a practical survival guide. (Laughs)

Though… I somehow feel that sheep is the only silly idiot who is thinking of this kind of stuff. How lonely… <u_u,> (Tears)

Oh well, this is Ms Aya the sheep, the culprit of this really ridiculous entry. <—ω—>/

Oh, one last question: Suppose your love one turns into a zombie and starts attacking you, will you have the heart to put an end (as in ‘don’t-come-back-to-life-again’ end) to his/her life? <.___.>{?] How do you think you’d feel after pulling the trigger? Remorse?

Baa~♥ Sore ja! \<^v^*>

No, this entry isn’t blogged by a boy who’s obsess with the undead. Instead, it’s blogged by a sheepish girl who loves pink and rainbows very much. <^-^*>/
