Better to be prepared than hiding in the attic waiting for the looters to burn your house down.

The meth problem in northern CO would make anyone a believer in the walking dead.

its already real!! and im sure with some development the CDC can engineer a variation for humans

A stalk of the newfound fungus species Ophiocordyceps camponoti-balzani, grows out of a "zombie" ant's head in a Brazilian rain forest.

Originally thought to be a single species, called Ophiocordyceps unilateralis, the fungus is actually four distinct species—all of which can "mind control" ants—scientists announced Wednesday.

Potential zombie infestation?

I strongly suggest taking the higher ground and staying above the fray as long as possible. This would allow the rider to deliver well placed steel toe boot kicks to their diseased craniums. Additionally the large diameter wheels would roll easily over the ever increasing depth of finally "deceased" zombie carcasses- it's gonna' get deep out there.

YIKES! My first thought was an "Ant-alope", a distant cousin of this:




Which in its own right could be a precursor to the modern animal zombie........

Watch the movie "The Serpent and The Rainbow", or read the book and you decide. 'Resurrected dead' doesn't necessarily entail said dead eating the flesh of the living.

Forget dog-based Zombies . . . . you have a rational fear of dangerous dogs.

Much - much - much more dangerous is something that you are handicapped from beginning to flee away . . . .because you may be laughing too hard. In other words, your 'laughter' can get you killed!

You want to know how it all got started? Its like Mad Cow disease . . . feeding a species on itself creates a Feed-Back Loop!

There is the power of the Green Lobby - - - - - conservation - - - - food shortages!

Where's the food going to come from? Simple - - - - we'll just recycle:







Yes! It all started with Soylent Green . . . . . .

Of course it's against policy to use it on a kid, but... you know, what kid really wants to be the first test case?

I'd take a quiet .22 for loners, and a high capacity 5.56 for ... anything more.

Late last summer, I was headed back to North Carolina after a trip out to Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, and Idaho where I'd met my sons for a few days of riding -- they stayed in Washington when we moved here in 2007. When I got to the Mississippi, I found most of the bridges were still out from last year's floods. As it neared dark, I spotted an abandoned farm house looking lonely and surrounded by very tall grass. I turned around, rode through the grass where I thought the driveway had been, and parked around back where I set up my tarp, ate a can of beans, and went to bed.

A couple of hours later, I woke to thunder and lightening. A few minutes after that, the rain began to pour down. It was purely black all around. I heard one animal tear the life from another, presumably smaller, one. I felt disquieted which made sense in the thunderous din.

Then the screams began. At first I assumed someone was murdering hitchhikers in the old house. (It was so close to dark when I pulled in, I'd only glanced inside the place, saw its ruinous state, and assumed it was indeed abandoned.) What could I do to save the hitchhikers? I couldn't even distinguish my hand from the darkness.

In the darkest regions of my mind, I remembered my sons telling me all about . . . Zombies. That did it. My 57 year old heart went to the brink of self destruction and my mind ran away with me. I just trembled as quietly as I could and prayed. When the zombies are really there, right there in the black yard with you, but you can't see anything, what good are preparations?

Either the prayers worked, Bearshark the Bonneville T100 kept the zombies away, they didn't see me in the dark, or, maybe, I decided, it was a screech owl.

Regards, Chuck
Screech Owl?! Now you're just being ridiculous!
