Necessities Poll

Once again I'm proud of our readers for making wise decisions in a zombie crisis. We all know that the most critical period for survival in the event of an outbreak is the first hour or two, while gaining your bearings and beginning to enact your survival plan. It was that period that our most recent poll tested.

A full 46% (393) of our readers chose weapons as the most important necessity to be secured for zombie survival. This seems to me to be the right answer. After all, what good is food if you can't even protect yourself long enough to eat it? What good is water if you get eaten before you can drink it? What good is group numbers if no one in that group is capable of defending themselves (or anyone else in the group for that matter) against zombies? Frankly I'm disappointed that only 46% chose this option.

Coming in second in the poll was water (20% - 170). This seems fairly reasonable to me since if we take threats in order of their immanence, water should be second. After death by zombie, you're most likely to die of thirst next. You'll certainly die of thirst long before starvation.

In third we had group numbers (17% - 142). To me this one could easily have been above water, so it makes sense that it was barely nudged out by water. After all, group numbers is really another tool (along with weapons) for surviving the most immanent threat to life - zombies.

In fourth place was transportation (10% - 85). This is an interesting one. If you find yourself in a city you're simply not going to survive if you stay there, no matter how many weapons you have. I'm sure for these 10% that is what tipped the scales. But how do you plan to get to that transportation in the first place if you don't have any weapons? Further, what if you don't live in the city? Why concern yourself with transportation above everything else?

The fifth most chosen answer was food at 6% (50). This just seems silly...absolutely silly. A person can survive more than a month with no food. Granted that time will be knocked down significantly under high stress survival situations, but the point still stands - food should not be considered a necessity in the early stages of zombie survival. Concentrate on living in the short term before you concentrate on surviving in the long term.

In last place, surprisingly, was night vision aids (1% - 7). To me this just seems utterly absurd! Why in God's name would anyone choose food over being able to see in the dark when a hoard of zombies is on the loose? In my opinion this could have come in as high as 2nd or 3rd and at the very worst 4th. Remember that we should prioritize necessities by order of the eminence of the threat that they protect against. If that is the case, then night vision should come before even water. A person can go a couple days without water (although, admittedly it will suck), but night falls for about a third of every day! When it's dark out and there are zombies around I assure you you'll be aggressively bartering your canteen for a pair of night vision goggles or a flashlight!

Well, there's my traditional assessment of the poll results. Feel free to rip me to shreds for my idiocy.

I feel that water and weapons jockey for position as most important survival element depending on the class of outbreak. I feel that water is most important in both Class 1 and Class 2 outbreaks and only during a Class 3 is its position tenuous.

Feel free to take these comments with a grain of salt if you wish as I have no real data to turn to in defense of them.

man, you have obviously never used nods before. you get this weird sense of vertigo and it fucks your vision up so bad. You know the crazy scene filmed with night vision in the end of 28 weeks later? That shit was toned down. And as far as food goes... fuck a month. maybe if you were in a coma. without energy from food, you won't last two days on the move. food is more important than sleep. And an MRE has the amount of calories to last a combat soldier 24hrs or more and only weighs a few pounds. and the type of food you choose is important too. 28 days later: sugar crash. so yeah. the list was good, except NVGs shouldnt even be on there and protective clothing should have been.

-the same guy that got on your ass about baseball bats.

PS this really is a good site and you've got some good shit here. I'm just incable of adding in two cents. with me its the whole buck-fifty.

I found the poll answers a little hard to understand. I really put myself in the shoes of someone who survived and in my unpublished book

And came up with some ideas that were similar to the zombie survival guides but more integrated. I think the rule of 3's for survival is important:

A person can survive for:

Three hours without shelter
Three days without water
Three weeks without food

Is a good starting point but you need a total strategy that integrates how you will use various objects.

I would think in the time immediately following an infestation that you would want weapons and then transportation. If you get transportation quickly before all hell breaks loose, you can get to places to find other supplies while staying relatively safe.

well if outbreak did happen, max brooks survival book would be no good in some countrys like Britain were guns are hard to come by & most of south Britain is density population, so make it vary hard to move around. so i would say what country you live in, the list of thing you need the most first weeks of any outbreak is what you can get your hans on. things like MRE,flares,solar-powerd radiods,bicycle-powered electric generator & so on are not the things you find on shop shelf's, you not a soldier. panic is go to be your wost enemy, you going have a lot peope all look do the same thing,so imo what you need do is getsome base so you can fill it with supplies, it no good have a gun when have 40-50 zomble all around you & you got know were to go.

this is awesome! I think weapons are most important, then water, then food, then night vision goggles, then transportation. I live in a little town in nowhere, I could just walk to the nearest pasture and make camp with some friends...But you really need the weapons. You can clear an area, threaten people (if necessary), and hunt with guns. I've never used night vision goggles before, they would probably just mess me up. Also, that whole superhuman strength crap is stupid. it's biologically impossible for something that is for all intents and purposes dead but re-animated to move so quickly.

Weapons are the first priority. I think it depends on where you are if water and food are next on the list. If you are somewhere where there is plenty of bottled water and food available then bump that down the list. Worry about fortifying your place and getting a small group together. Large groups of unorganized scared people will do more harm than good. Keep your team small and mobile.

Just some thoughts on that.

Obviously, short-term survival is paramount. However, what's the point if there's not long term survival plan. I think some people over-look some interesting semi-necessities with regard to long term survival. Once the urban areas are fled, and you're farming out in the country while killing the occasional zombie visitor, you'll need to form a basic economy with other survivalists. Aside from barter, some value based money is the most efficient exchange currency available. Gold is too valuable for day to day purchases, and recommend silver (side-bonus, if the zombie attack somehow turns into a werewolf attack, you have supplies for specialized ammunition). But let's not be ridiculous, werewolves don't exist. I am commenting because the Northwest Territorial mint has come out with a product perfect for everyone's zombie survival kit: http://bullion.nwtmint.com/silver_stagecoach.php

Yeah, rations are definately a necessity when it comes to surviving any kind of situation. guns, definately a long range protection caliber and a close quarters one such as an assault shotgun with buckshot. you may not kill one with it, but you can take out the legs of 2 or 3 in one shot and if they cant move, youve got a great getaway. but hands down, a good mop suit and a blade. the mop suit keeps you from getting infected by splattering blood or saliva, and blades dont need reloading.

While learning how to program for the web I put together a website using PHP/JavaScript/MySQL that tests a users competency in surviving a zombie apocalypse. It is a fairly long test and will probably take you about 10 minutes or so. Depends on how much thought you put into each question. The questions are based on a zombie universe with rules defined by Max Brook's zombie survival guide and George Romero's undead movies. I would be happy for some feed back.

Once you complete the test you are given an option for submitting your name to the scoreboard. You don't need to use your real name of course but if you take the test I would appreciate it.

Each T or F question is worth 1 point and each multiple choice section is worth 4. For some of the multiple choice questions there may be multiple correct answers. So if you do not pick the "best" answer than you may still get points for your other one.

At the end you will be ranked and given a title based upon your score and the morality of some of your answers.

I hope you like it, it was fun to make. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

There's way too much acceptance of the sprinting "zombie" these days. It's time to fight for the integrity of the Romero ghoul. Anything that moves faster than an old lady with a walker isn't a zombie. Period. Whick (IMHO) makes weapons NOT the most useful thing.
1). Water.
2). Food.
3). Heavy duty protective clothing.

I'd argue that fuel and transportation (even a bike) trump weapons.

Am I crazy? Maybe.

Oh my goodness, Guns most important no doubt in my mind!!!!! I mean in most zombie apocalypse situations zombies are EVERYWHERE at some point and if you don't have a gun then you are basically done for. I mean peoples initial action is going to shot at the zombie closest to themselves! If a zombie is coming after you and you don't have a gun, and your partners don't even realize it because they are killing the closest zombies to themselves then you are screwed! Am I right? Also I think that I'll note that learning to aim very well would become a HUUUUUUUUGEEE necessity! I mean if you aren't going to shoot and hit the head then get a bat....Or a shotgun would be great for those who don't aim well.


This is the latest chapter in my zombie survival journal and it depicts a situation where a maniac ,protecting a gas station full of supplies, pulls out a gun on one of the main lovable characters, Cole. Immediately Ray pulls out his shotgun from his back strap sheath. He hits the manic in the head from about 10ft.... If you can't aim shotgun is really your best tool! However, make sure you aren't behind anyone when you are shotting! Does anyone agree? BTW... great blog guys! I'd love to trade links! Also, I could really use some zombie expert input!

Just wanted to let all zombie fans know that James DiAngelo one of the founders of the mostly zombie themed Red Moon Features and Nickel Heroes was shot on June 1st outside his home in the Denver foothills.

" We were having coffee on the deck and plotting a new eight page zombie comic when a shot rang out and James fell to the deck with his life blood flooding from him." said friend and co-founder Bill Mays.

Police, wh were investigating death threat against the cartoonist,say they have ruled the tragedy a homicide.

"No way was this an accident" said a homicide detective who asked not to be identified. " It's a shame. The guy was a decent fellow and was shot because some nut didn't like his comics"

Its reported that prior to his death James sat straight up on the gurney and screamed out" It rains!
It rains"

Bill Mays ,with a smile on his face claims this was DiAngelos last laugh as he actually screamed: Brains! Brains!

A nurse was said to have fainted at this utterance.

I can only hope that the story he was working on will be completed by one of the other artists.

So long Jimmy.

I agree with the outcome of your poll, although I agree with Fletch that certain priorities change based on how serious the outbreak is. In the case of a total outbreak, I'd choose a bunker to hide in over weapons in a heartbeat.

The most foolproof way to survive a Zombie outbreak, however, will always be forethought. My brother has a license to carry a sniper rifle and a shotgun, and he stocks enough ammo for both to survive at least a year of ongoing zombie onslaught. In addition, he has a big basement with a healthy supply of canned food. (We're a family of paranoid zombie-nuts :D ) Therefore, in my individual case, I'd put weapons first, transportation second and then achieve the food, water, companion and shelter necessities in one go.

I love you blog.

OK So in the event of an out brake my plan of action is already set.
1.Find the nearest car with keys, the bigger the better, 4x4 would be best. The car also doubles up as a weapon as you can run zombies over.
2.Go to a pre-selected secure location. This could be anywhere, mine include police stations, military barracks and supermarkets. Any chosen location will need to be 100% secure and lockable (none of this glass window rubbish) with 2 entry/exit points.
3.Create a secure area, admitting survivors but checking none have been bitten, any that have been bitten are to be sent on their way or if you have any hippies with you that demand that everyone is treated equally you put them all together in a secure lockable room.
That is the short term plan.
From there you then need to start planning for future survival. This will include building internal defenses (in case your first line of defense is compromised) and Organizing scouting raids to find weapons and food.

You might or might not have this listed under weapons but how can you forget AMMO?????? with out this your weapons are useless speacially on the time of weapon you are carrying im in the Military and know that 5.56 or .233 is pretty difficult to find the same goes with .357, .38, .45 at least enough to survive waves of Zombie attacks. You can find .22 but that hardly has the stoping power of the said ammo cartridges listed above.

Why would you need night vision aids when the zombies are moaning to let you know where they are? Also, because zombies don't have body heat, thermal sights don't work against them. Night vision aids are useless and simply extra baggage that you should replace for more essentials.

Instead of trying to figure out what is the most important item to take with you, or to have with you, in the event of a Zombie breakout, try this on:

Create a "bug out" bag. Nothing too big, but not too small, either. You want to have in it some basics, like a mini survival kit (focussed on first aid), some food items (beef jerky, and other items that don't need to be cooked or refridgerated), a few bottles of water (or, you can get a camelbak backpack/hydration system), a change of clothes, and ofcourse, a hand gun or 2 (with spare mags and extra ammo, providing you have access to any). This solves the immediate issue of trying to figure out what to take with you. It also gives you enough time to gather your wits, and regain your bearings.

However, depending on where you live, and how naturally fortified your home is, you might want to consider not leaving for a few days, unless you HAVE to.

Excellent post-- I especially liked how high up water was on the list. It's so easily overlooked when running from slavering zombie hordes. Not only is it vital to drink, but if the body of water is large enough to wade into, it slows the zombies down. But sometimes we try so hard to stay alive, we forget to stay human. That's why I nominate, for inclusion in your worthy list-- jazz. It's what we're all about at http://zombieradioshow.com

"Let’s do a horror movie," the screenwriter says to the producer.

"Does it have zombies in it?" replies the producer.

Sensing that his next paycheck is in danger if he says no, the screenwriter happily smiles and says "Yes! Yes, it's all about zombies! Why would you assume it wasn't?"

Why do zombies continue gaining popularity? What’s so lovable about them?

Frankly, nothing is lovable about zombies. Zombies are dead people who should be flat on morgue gurneys or buried six feet underground. They’re bluish-pale, vein-y, leaking bodily fluids from all their orifices, and (I imagine) they smell like unflushed wet feces stirred into old hamburger that’s been sitting out for a week. They shouldn’t be walking around, but they are, and it’s disgusting. To top it all off, they want nothing more than to consume living human flesh, which basically means you and me… and maybe the dog. There is no reason that any sensible person should like zombies. Yet the sales numbers prove it; we don’t just like zombies, we LOVE them. Resident Evil Afterlife debuted this weekend at #1, earning $43 million. The 2009 film Zombieland took in $24 million during its opening weekend. The Dawn of the Dead remake took in $102 million worldwide before leaving theaters. And the reason the DotD remake got a green light was because the zombie-deviant film 28 Days Later exploded in America after a more modest release in England. However, I can say with the utmost confidence and tenacity that the next zombie film will be far more successful than the last.


Because The Franchise Shane Douglas has masterfully infused professional wrestling into the world of the undead. That's right, professional wrestlers will be slaying zombies in such gruesome ways that even Rob Zombie [the last name says it all] will find himself having to look away as the plot thickens and the blood spews into rivers of pure unbridled evil. shot "for the fans"

But we cannot do any of this without YOUR help. This film is being shot "for the fans"... that's rhe Franchise is starting a REVOLUTION and he's including each and every last one of you!

I, Bridget Petrella, am just one of the primary producers on this one-of-a-kind-project [until the sequel]. Cameron Bartollota and Cody Knotts are two of the most imaginative, thought-provoking producers/filmmakers I've met in a LONG time. They are fearless. When I asked Cody what had inspired him he was very candid, "I had this a story that I concocted in my head, but I never really attempted to put it into the movie because I figured there's only so much time. You just have to think, 'Okay, we have to push very hard in a short period of time as we're merging two types of fan favorites.' I think everyone can relate to that. I didn't really want to get into too much back story because I just thought it might bog the movie down. A lot of times, I see movies and I think, 'Yeah, we get it, you don't need to explain it all."

Cameron simply laughed and confessed, "What is anyone's motivation? They're insane, obviously." And I'm right there with them, no straight jacket and no safety net. Sometimes, people just have to channel the insanity and let it take on it's own form. Watch the footage and be prepared for a totally new horror genre, something NO ONE else on this planet would EVER attempt! The Franchise Shane Douglas is planning on taking pro-wrestling back from the dead... LITERALLY!

I just interviewed one of the stars of the show. And I'm running a four-part series on my blog. I'm going to profile each of the principal cast members leading up to the March 6th air date of the second season.

I'm calling it - "The Bite Me Interviews" and you can read part one, with actor Justin Giddings.

Weapons are important, but food and water are necessary. If you can hide or hopefully outrun the zombies, then weapons are secondary. Of course if it was the zombie apocalypse, I would imagine that there would be plenty of everything.

I must agree with the majority in that weapons, although deemed a nessecity in certain situations, would prove to be somewhat useless if you were unable to survive long enough to use them.
Without food and water you are not going to last long anywhere. Yes, I would like a baseball bat but I would much prefer a good hiding place and a ham sandwhich!

Also, NVG. Really! A: I am never going to put myself in a pitch black situation with zombies. I will be waiting it out by preference. and B: Zombies are people too (please dont write in) if I cant see in the dark, why would they be able to. If a zombie has (apparently) a lower intelligence and cognitive ability than me then by all rights I am already at an advantage where senses are deprived, I dont need to have a bulky, battery eating piece of nonsense kit with me to feel better.

Fox like wit and good preparation/fore thought is all you need!
