Read the comments too.

If this comes to pass, world wide war between zombies and humans, we should ally ourselves with werewolves and vampires. They are strong and may not be affected by zombie bites. We can give vampires gallons of human blood to get them on our side and call it foreign aid. The werewolves are more of a problem; after the zombies are defeated, we'll have to double cross them by nuking the moon. Then there will be no more full moons, they won't go were, and all is peaceful again.

I don't know....
I'm not sure I like the idea of getting into bed with vampires and werewolves, Gene.
Y'all don't even know yet if they'd be affected by zombie bites or not!
(Probably not, but there should be a big study or something to hang your hat on, dontcha think?)

And is this really even a problem?
I mean, zombies are after one thing, right? Brains.
From where I'm camping, I'd say they're in pretty short supply around the globe these days.

My schedule (you know, the retired kind that is more complicated than when you were working) will permit me to stop by Gene's the day after the RMVAC, like the afternoon of the 8th of Aug.

No, wait, I could also stop by on 15 July on the way to pre-position (I added the "-" for those who would have thought I was talking about a particle of speech) the Sovereign for Burning Man. Don't ask, it requires some airline travel to make it work...

G has a pool, right?

Wearing hot, dusty road all summer long can get, um, tedious.

Never did make it to the bash.

I'd be glad to host but the Crawford Vampire Festival conflicts with the proposed dates. I figure I'd better get on their good side before the zombies attack. I believe if I wear a neck brace, they can't get me, and if they do, I get to live forever. Best to become a vampire before I'm any older. If you insist on coming during the Festival, bring your daughters. Vampires really like them.

As for zombies, I advise viewing the movie From Dusk to Dawn. Defensive weapons made from common household products can be useful. I agree with Mistral, more study is needed. Some movies, my primary source of information about zombies and therefore usually quite reliable, indicated zombies cannot be destroyed, and others show zombies can be. I think substantial moneys can be obtained from the Dept of Defense if we can convince the Joint Chiefs of Staff that it will lead to more appropriations for enormous, expensive weapons systems. No doubt we can slip in appropriations for personal meteor protection devices.

Maybe. First priority is kayaking around Bowron park in BC in the middle of August.

The Kayak deal in PT is competing with a small party in Sonoma. Wine does have a certain attraction...

That's a dead end G. You don't seem to understand the enemy. These aren't some neighborhood crackheads you can blast away with a well placed bomb. What kills an undead? Which model of the undead are you using? Night of the Living Dead, Return, Dawn, Day, Shaun? How are you going to train our fighting men and women to deal with this enemy? Previously, scientists invented an endothermic chemical dart that freezes the brain, incapacitating the zombie, but its effective duration proved wildly unpredictable. Burning undeads releases Trioxin into the atmosphere; electrocution stops them only temporarily....

Moreover, from where would the DoD get bank? We're so totally unprepared for your nightmare scenario (the weaponry we now possess is pathetically obsolete and entirely ineffective to fight this enemy) that I'm afraid proper military funding in this instance would be nearly impossible to attain. I do see how a personal meteor protection device could come in handy however....

FYI, the kayak/coffin metaphor gives you guys away too.

Hear, hear.

Try out this series of NYT articles if you want to know something about stupid.
Errol Morris

The Anosognosic's Dilemma: Something's Wrong but You'll Never Know What It Is (parts 1 - 5)
A quick summary: If you know you're stupid, you're actually smart.

And now, today's word: Regurgible, v., something so vile it makes you puke. As in, this boiled eggplant is regurgible. Alternate spellings: regurgable, regurgeable.

BTW, anyone who likes Calvin is OK in my book, zombie or not, vampire or not, kayaker or ..., uhm, let me rethink this

Another problem IMHO is that too many folks mistake belief for knowledge and don't realize the difference.

Kubrick's "Mind Shaft Gap!" comes to mind...

That's why we need studies. Only after 5 or 10 years of studies of what the problem is, will we be able to determine, with more studies, what the proper weapons are. Then in another 25 years can we develop them, hopefully beating the Star Wars record of incompetance (this phrase can be read two ways; make your own choice). Congress will be told that every Congressional District will get some money from this and then they may approve it. However, since many in Congress are zombies already, filibusters in the Senate may block funding.

So, that's why I'm going with the vampire and werewolf option. Self help and good friends are the best approach when the zombies come.

Right now they are frequenting some saloons I spent too much time in years ago, so that's the place to start the attack.

So G, when ya back in our "neck" of the woods. You must of hit every saloon
north of Vancouver by now. 1st annual Hijacker's Rally sounds like a winner.
Washed, and waxed the rig, I'm ready to roll. She looks sweeter than your
mamma's sweet potato pie.

I can bring enough Tanqueray #10 to turn us all into zombies, and I'm sure Zep
can keep the vampires happy with the red stuff. You have olives?
