~Well, here's a bit about myself. I was born on the marine corp base Camp Pendolten, California (its around San Diego). My father's an 8 year vet, my grandfather's a 28 year vet! I was also Home Schooled for a short amount of time. In January I'll be starting school full time to get my major in art and a doctrine in psychological therapy. I am currently taking computer tech courses to pass the time. I enjoy reading about things most people may find boring. My favorite book in the WORLD Is Mein Kampf, By Adolf Hitler (He was SUCH a military GENIUS! It was a shame his talent was put to such bad use.) I am currently living in western New York. In my spare time I enjoy drawing. I can be slightly shy at times and it takes me a little while to bust outta' my bubble. But if you talk to me, I'm not gonna' ignore you. A lot of my friends describe me as "Contemplative". I truly think long and hard before I do anything! I'm also very blunt, and I may seem harsh at times (I apologize for it, that's why most people don't like me.). For the most part, I'm merely trying to help the best way possible, and that's by telling it how it is.....
*~D2M and her Two cents~*
-We all know what this is about, Zeds and what to do with em'...Here are some things I'd suggest to keep in mind before you go into "super-hero-zombie-killer mode....."
-1) Cleanliness - It is of utmost importance! Your runner up priority, next to "Not dying". We're dealing with a deadly virus here! It could be airborne or it could be transferred by only fluids.You don't know, and you can NOT take that risk! If I cough in my hand, shake your's and you wipe your eye, your infected with the common cold. It'll take quite some time to kick in, but none the less, you will be infected. Knowing zombies, and how dirty they will be, and exactly how disgusting the town/urban-area/whatever will be, You'll DEFINITELY need to stay as clean as physically possible! Girls, keep your hair tied back. Guys, wear hats. And as often as you possibly can, scrub down like you have never scrubbed before! Hot water, soap, shampoo, the whole shebang! Imagine yourself in a quarantine area and wash yourself like the military would wash you! You DO NOT want any trace of that virus on your living carcass! If you want to save humanity, you need to stay human in the process.
---> Little clean things to keep with you!
-Tissue/ Baby wipes
-2) Face it - You're NOT going to hold off the entire United States Zed forces with just you, 3 of your friends and about 30 shotgun rounds. You need to get to the coast as soon as freakin' possible (or an airport, If anyone has any flying experience.)! You need to get to Europe or Asia! Somewhere NOT in the US! Zeds cant swim, especially over seas (Duh)! Honestly, It's best to assume everyone is a zombie if you haven't seen them or heard them act on any form of human behavior! Don't wait for help, Don't stay in one spot, DO NOT lock yourself up in one place for any longer than 2 days. Be sure you have SOME survivors with you, whether it's friends, family, whatever.You WILL go insane without any form of social activity. A pet would be nice too, just to lighten your spirits. When you go, take a large car. An SUV perhaps? A semi would be perfect! The bigger the vehicle the more Zombies you can mow down.
--->Tips on how to get where your going!
-Take the back roads- Less people, less mess!
-Road maps and pit stops are important! If you find a few Zeds at the truck stop, it shouldn't be hard to take em out....Just stick together.
-Again about the being clean! If you DO make it to Europe, you don't want to bring the virus with you!
-3) Take Charge- At this point in time, it's a matter of life and death. If you have a rebellious survivor in your crew It's just best to leave 'em. They obviously don't need or want your help. It's their Life, let them toss it away if they want. But DO NOT let them threaten YOUR tiny bit of life you have to lead. Any threat to the people you are protecting MUST be eliminated! Whether it's an infected family member, or a whiny person, wanting to go back for their loved ones! If they get in your way of survival, then they're better off dead.It sounds horrible now, but when the fate of humanity is in your hands, it will sound a lot more reasonable. Talk to them though, before you completely shun them. They need to know that It's time to move on and if they can't do that, then explain to them that they may be a threat to the group as a whole. But of they continue to throw a ***** fit, then it's quite alright to just pop 'em one. at least in my book....
--->Tips on how to deal with things....
-Always take some alone time to focus and collect yourself. Meditation isn't a bad thing to try, neither is praying.
-If you absolutely need to shoot an infected loved one, look away and do it quickly. The longer you stew on it, the harder it will be to concentrate on survival.
-There is always time for a hug, It will keep your sanity, relive a bit of stress, and build trust amongst your fellow survivors.
-Always stay open and have a caring heart, regardless of the situation.
-Do what NEEDS to be done.
When I started thinking way too much about Zombies: When I was about 15/16, I REALLY generally started thinking about zombies and the possibilities of certain things occurring.....
What started my zombie fixation: I've always loved zombies, and the idea of the walking dead. It was just an interesting thing to think about. Also, as an artist, I enjoy the studies of the human anatomy. Whether it's sprawled out all over the ground in tiny chunks, bits n' pieces, or if it all is properly placed on the human figure. Zombies allowed me to observe the human body in a way that would be considered morbid or disturbing to an average person. To make it short, gore does not bother me at all. If anything, I find it intriguing.
Favorite Zombie book: I don't generally read a lot of zombie books, When I do read it's mostly about war tactics and history. It's either those or comic books, lol.
Favorite Zombie movie: I'd have to say 28 days/weeks later, I like how the military gets involved, and they need to take out even some uninfected civilians. It makes the experience all more real. The fast zombies are also some of my favorites. I always thought that a zombie was just a feral human being, not knowing, not thinking just doing by nature. True human nature is to act in fear. If they're just like animals, they're obviously going to be afraid of humans, but they feel the need for dominance as well, so what do they do? They attack, using the best of their knowledge against us. Just how we see them as a threat to the human race, they see us as a threat to their own. They're afraid.
Favorite quote in any zombie movie:
"Son, we just crossed the street....Let's not throw a party 'til we're outta' the city...."
