Apparently, everyone is preparing for the rise of the undead, including the Pentagon. No doubt, conspiracy theorists will have a field day with this information. As someone who is zombie obsessed, I think it's an interesting bit of data to have. I hope it actually helps us when the apocalypse occurs.
Being prepared is the most important part of any natural disaster--or unnatural one such as the dead rising from their graves. It's important to have a plan and a backup plan should the first one fail. While the chances of zombies actually occurring is slim to none, other things could occur, including earthquakes, tsunamis, terrorist attacks, etc. Zombies are a great way to think about these situations because they are a worst-case scenario. If you can be prepared for the undead, you can be prepared for anything.
Do you have a plan in place? Have you talked to your family and friends about what to do should the worst occur? Do you have supplies on hand? Today is a great day to start planning your zombie/natural disaster survival. It may come in handy.
