Zombie Cliche Lookout: An Imbalance
When you’re trying to work with someone, there’s an expectation of give and take. Quid pro quo and all that. Expecting one party to give it all while the other does nothing but takes is not just unreasonable, but insulting. So if you’re looking to broker a deal with someone, you’d better have something to bring to the table. In the middle of the zombie apocalypse, this is even more true.
Resources will be at a premium, so any potential trade partner will likely be extremely skeptical about what you’re offering. And if their deal seems to good to be true? Watch out, because it almost certainly is.
About this Episode:
As fun as it’s been getting the darkened interior to look right in these scenes, I’m getting tired of this interior and trying to shade all the ambient light from my camera (and mostly failing).
As you may have noticed, I’ve been gone the last few days. I talked about it last week, but I think I should have added a reminder. At any rate, I was off cheering for my wife (and sisters, sister-in-law, mom, and a friend) at the Pittsburgh Tough Mudder. It was pretty awesome. As a spectator, I had loads of fun, and walked a good five or six miles around Powerline Park. Everyone on the team finished, and had a great time. The only injuries were minor cuts and bruises.
And now I want to do it next year. Time to start training.
Discussion Question: Zombie Survival Recreation
And once again I’m picking from the comments and forum. This time the question is: how are you going to keep the boredom at bay when surviving the zombie apocalypse? After all, while there will certainly be moments of incredible excitement and terror, you’ll likely also be faced with a pretty good deal of down-time to fill. So how do you do it without power, being too loud, or opening yourself up to zombie attack? How many hours of solitaire (with an actual deck of cards, of course) can you really stand?
