Zombie Cliche Lookout: Think About It
We take a lot for granted in our day to day lives. We just assume that we know what’s going on, and we’re generally right. Generally, but not always. Now, with our relatively comfortable lives, being wrong about things from time to time usually won’t be disastrous. It can hurt a lot (just ask me about buying a home in 2004 to renovate and sell in three years), but we can usually bounce back.
When it comes to the zombie apocalypse, it’s a bit of a different story. Making an incorrect assumption about something can be deadly. And not just to you. If you bring someone who’s infected back to camp, they could turn and kill a lot of people before the situation can be brought under control (see just about every zombie flick ever made). Your mistake need not involve zombies. Disasters bring out the extremes in people, good and bad. You bet on the wrong person, and you can end up – figuratively and/or literally – stabbed in the back.
About this Episode:
Brent fired that shotgun a couple of episodes ago now. If the zombie are coming, they should be showing up pretty soon. So what the heck are Murphy and Inez doing wasting all this time? Perhaps I’m being clever and trying to make a statement about how people react to stress and focus on the wrong things to their peril. Or maybe I’m just not great about managing time.
Discussion Question: Getting Into Hunting
This spring I went turkey hunting with my cousin, and even though we got skunked, I had a great time with it. I think I’ve been bitten by the hunting bug, and I’m thinking about getting a deer rifle for the 2014 season. I figure there’s got to be a few hunters out there – and I know we’ve got some firearms enthusiasts – so I’m looking for recommendations for a solid deer rifle that won’t break the bank. Right now, I’m looking at a Remington Model 700 in 30-06. From what I read, it’s a solid rifle at a reasonable price, and 30-06 is a reasonably easy round to get your hands on. What do you all think?
A Quick Update:
Tomorrow’s review of The Walking Dead will be posted a little later than usual. I’ll be watching the episode tonight and doing the review first thing tomorrow morning (I like to sleep on it).
