Zombie Cliche Lookout: One Works, One Watches
When it comes to surviving zombies, it pays to have someone watching your back. Or more than one someone, if you can swing it. Part of the problem is that people just aren’t all that good at multitasking. Sure, we do the best we can, and a lot of us do a lot of multitasking day in and day out. But experts agree, it’s not the way we’re wired to work. Instead of doing one thing well, we’re doing a bunch of things poorly.
These days, most of us have the privilege of enjoying the most safe and secure period in all of history. That means that we can afford to do a bunch of things poorly most of the time without having to worry that it’s going to bite us in the ass too hard. Of course, that only goes so far, as many texting and driving PSAs are keen to tell you. At any rate, in a zombie-infested world things won’t be nearly this simple.
About this Episode:
I’m trying to do some different things with trees and plants in the background. This time around, I built some skinny birch trees (my wife’s favorite). There’s some really great plant and tree creations out there, and I’m trying to be inspired by them.
Discussion Question: Starting Small
Yet another another question posed by BrickVoid, which I’ll do my best to summarize here. Let’s say that the zombie outbreak starts somewhere remote, how would it spread and take hold, and what sort of factors would affect it? Would the speed of zombies, for instance, have any bearing on how easily the zombie outbreak takes hold? Would slow zombies be eliminated before they could become an overwhelming problem, or would people not realize what was happening until it was too late?
