Zombie Cliche Lookout: Collateral Damage
You can’t just go and shoot a gun without worrying about the consequences. Seriously, don’t do it. Outside of the zombie apocalypse, you’re likely to run into some pretty serious legal problems. And that’s if you don’t accidentally hurt someone. Do that, and things are going to get really bad. Of course, in the zombie apocalypse, things are a little different. You’re not likely to have to worry too much about the police since they’ve probably been eaten by zombies. On the other hand, you’ve got to worry about zombies. And we all know zombies flock to the sound of gunfire like a moth to a flame.
And if you accidentally hurt someone during the zombie apocalypse? Well that’s a problem for a number of reason. First, you’ve just hurt someone and you should feel really bad about that. Second, that’s someone in your group that probably won’t be able to do as much as they could otherwise. Third, it’s going to eat into your medical supplies and you’re going to work hard to take care of them.
So, yeah, accidentally shooting people is something you should probably try to avoid.
About this Episode:
This little trip to the store hasn’t gone too well. We’ve got one paralyzed shop owner, and now Murphy is wounded, although we don’t know how seriously.
Discussion Question: Zombie Apocalypse Survival Vehicles
This one comes right out of our forum, where there’s been quite a bit of discussion of late. The question is, what would your preferred vehicle be in the zombie apocalypse?
Some things to keep in mind: how much noise the vehicle makes, how much you can carry, fuel economy (horses still need to eat, as do you), off road ability, ground clearance, maneuverability, etc. So justify your decision, and talk about how the pros outweigh the cons.
