So, we all know what will happen in a zombie apocalypse and the measurements that we have to take on surviving it. But not many realize that it's hard to actually survive one. They think of that because let's be honest we all played Dead Island and we pretty much nailed the game in a couple of days or even hours and some think it's the same as the video game, that you are going to collect things, craft things, gather supplies, do missions and try not to die by killing zombies. To be honest, just because you played a zombie survival video games doesn't mean that you are going to live as well in real-life. What I am about to discuss in this topic is how you will survive if a zombie apocalypse does happen someday.
Alright, first things first, the anatomy of a zombie. A zombie it's basically a dead human that came back to life because scientists thought it would be cool to research new things and led into bringing the dead back to life. And of course, as we all saw in all kinds of movies and tv series you always shoot or hit a zombie in the head, because a body can't function without a brain, just how you control a character in a video game or how you play an instrument, in other words you are the brain. Zombies are also very sensible to sound, they can hear the slightest sound in a close range and immediately go there. And as we all know, zombies are slow, they sometimes run and they are idiotic ,now you are wondering why are you reading this again.
Second, it's rather obvious that you can't fight a zombie without a weapon, fists will not inflict lethal damage to a zombie ,unlike a baseball bat or a gun. But there's also the fact that zombies are sensible to sound, that makes the use of guns idiotic because it will not only attract other zombies but what if you run out of ammo? See the problem? Instead using a metal bar or a baseball bat or even something than can be used that it's not a gun it's better. I'm not telling you that The Walking Dead it's not logical because most of them use guns. There are also grenades that you can throw from a distance so zombies will be attracted to that direction that the explosion came from instead of searching for you.
Moving on, supplies. The three most important things in surviving it's water, food and sleep. The simple reasons is that you can't fight when you are dehydrated, hungry or without sleep. It will only increase the chance of you getting eaten by zombies. But I'm not telling you to carry with you 5 bottles of water, a year's supply of food and your own personal bed. There's also the chance that you might find supplies in abandoned buildings or a store. If you are lucky enough you could find supplies that are necessary.
Another important thing is traveling in a team. The main reason is that even though you told your buddies that you will totally survive in a zombie apocalypse just because you have a large collection of knives or that you don't eat a lot and that you can stay awake until morning it's not logical if you really think about it. So, in a team you have each other's back, you kill zombies together and help each on not getting eaten by zombies. You always have to divide food equally and same goes for water. You really don't want to run out of those two main supplies. There's also a solution on eating each other in case you run out of food and drinking your own urine but that's rather insane on eating comrades and drinking your own urine.
But, what would you do when a close-friend gets beaten? When you have no idea what to do because your friend that you knew since you were a kid and spend most of the time with playing video games is going to turn into a flesh eating monster in just a couple of minutes? Would you shoot him in the head or would you let him live and see what happens? Or would you make yourself believe that he will eventually stay human and not turn into a zombie? Most probably he will turn into a zombie and try to eat you while you gather the courage to kill him.
Lastly, regarding the things I mentioned there's probably nothing else to discuss, except the fact that there is a chance that a zombie apocalypse may occur due to the new discoveries happening every day by scientists. And of course thanks for reading.
