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. <^-^*>/

I guess, I will kill my loves one right away if he became a zombie :____:
Is sad but, is better to end his life.
He must be a person in the end of his life since the beginning, he was born as human.
I dun want him to be an undead being *cries*

Whoa!, whatta ride this post is!! :lol:

Man!, I never stopped to think about that possibility before… personally, I’d like to think that if I should meet such a fate, Milla Jovovich will come to my aid riding a bike, blowing shitty zombie arses with a shotgun :lol:

Now, the answer to your question: If I had to shot my loved one to put her out of her misery I think I would… but that would leave me devastated, no shit.

You seem to think about this kind of stuff very often don’t you. Even though I don’t see where the pink and rainbows fit in a zombie massacre, I still think you’re one of the coolest girls I’ve known. Not your average sheep folks.

LOL!! “babi betul..” lol for me I will say .. ” WTF.. This one memang kena sumpah babi ” .

In Malaysia it sucks that we dont have much firearms (only the military and officers) , so we depends more on the use of “Parangs” … what to do .. gotta fight close range @.@ “” But I guess the Chinese race will survive longer because we have the art of sword fighting , Indians might also because of their brute strength . . Malays …err.. “Depend On Government ?”

Zombies cant swim .. but they can walk underwater !!! *gasp* O.O ”

Whereas my strategy is that I might do the same as you will under the circumstances that there will be a rescue team to help me , But if there is not .. Its best I get a fast vehicle like a Bike ? (rocket’s idea) and find a cure to end this disease (The vaccine might only work for the person who just got bitten and havent manifest ) . Rather than staying in a stationary position until my food runs out ? or to find the cure till I meet my end ?

I will shoot my loved one because she is already dead , I will feel hurt but its the only way . It will be a quick death.

Funny how yo get the idea of posting this entry. I too sometimes wonder too .

Now people dont use destruction weapons to fight , but now they use bio weapons .. its very small , infectious , contagious , it moves in the air and it is very hard to cure . Take the H1N1 case we are experiencing now , see how fast it infect . But there is one conspiracy theory that the H1N1 virus might be actually a virus that is produced by a company or by someone .

H1N1 is actually not a new virus , it has been out for a very very very long time already . It is known as The Spanish Flu . But the reason why they make such a big issue out of it is because the country failed to contain the virus , so it spreads all over the world.

Dear Pixy and Saru-chan
!! Laughs !!
Shovel, cangkul — Doom for sure. What more? Some are so fat, it might require brutal forces to behead them.
I think our only dependable weapons are: Chainsaws, lawn mowers[?](grass cutter), parang — Do we have flamethrowers? (.__.){?]
Hey, do you think high frequencies can cause their heads to explode? I mean — Zombies’ got keen sense of smell, visual and hearings right? Maybe we can go to TV Tiga’s station and jack up the noise frequency? (.__.){?]
Of course we don’t go all the way with a 50-50 chance. We can test out this strategy using powerful hi-fi stereos. Which brand is super powerful, huh?
Saru, you sound like you are in Resident Evil — looking for vaccines and stuff. (Laughs)
[ . . . ]
Suddenly — I’m having more goofy thoughts about this ‘Zombie Apocalypse in Malaysia.’ (^v^)lll

Dear Kim-chan
Yea, “He must be a person in the end of his life since the beginning, he was born as human.” — Nicely put.
Soreya kowai… (;__; )

Dear Sand
Hohoho.
Such fate, which is very unlikely but who knows. (Laughs)
Devastating, everyone would be and it really sucks to be the one to put off the misery of someone you love. You’re doing good, but it somehow doesn’t feel good — even to just think about it.
(Laughs) I’m cool? Well, you have to be cool to say that. And you are yourself. (^v^*)/
Baa, yea… I have wild imaginations. (Gulps) Not in the kinky sense — just — stuff.

Chainsaws, lawn mowers need power source … Fuel … If no fuel how ?

High Frequency eh ? … Not sure, I think maybe it can work … But I can assure you … High Voltage Electric also can kill zombies … Lure them to power plant or substation …

Flamethrower ? Maybe use those like Dead Space … use for industrial or mining purposes flame …

Hi-Fi stereos brand ? Dunno … Normal computer speakers brands I know … but those normal one is not powerful enough …

Dear Pix
Uh — Tenaga National? Can get power supplies there right? Fuel for traveling, well — We got a lot of petrol stations. Petronas, Bhp, Caltex etc. (Laughs)
Hehe, can execute them at the nearest Tenaga National. Then dump their bodies in Indah Water.

Heya! Nonono! Sheep is not alone! My best friend and I always talk about surviving zombie infections at school! XD. Aside from the response you’ve gotten so far… (^^).

Aaaaa! KOWAAAAIIII…. Zombies are one of the things that I’ve always been afraid of… I grew up watching my older sister blast those heads off in the PS1 RE games! Plus movies and all… It wouldn’t hurt to have RE’s Alice’s sKILLs huh?

Fat zombies…hahahahahaha.
I once thought about fat pontianaks… like, how do they fly? Hee.

And agreed the gun laws here suck… We’re doomed aren’t we? (^_^’)

And according to typical-zombie-movie-scenarios, pretty much only about…2 out of…. 12 survivors make it??!?!?!?!?!? *cries*

Dear Kiii
Tough sis you got there. (Laughs)
Well, it’s good that weapons are not legal here so criminals can’t really use guns to harm us. (most they can use is parang)
Then again, don’t know where some bad people got hold those firearms…
Haha, 2 people, usually couples.
Does this mean we have higher chances of surviving if we are in a relationship? (Laughs)
Mmmm….Fat pontianaks..When they die, they become corpse so they sort of slim down maybe.. (^-^) Guess so?
