Things I Learned from The Walking Dead

I did Mantracker, so here’s The Walking Dead. First, though, a few disclaimers: this is based on the first two or three episodes of the show, then I stopped watching it. Not that I didn’t want to, but because Dish Network, for reasons known only to their marketing department, dropped  AMC from my lineup.

On to the list, in no particular order:

  • Use the stereotyped racist guy as bait. A few problems solved.
  • Box vans don’t have seat belts in back–drive slowly. No need to rush.
  • Car alarms don’t keep going and going and going and going.
  • Handguns aren’t cannons. Have a clue how to use them.
  • Rifles do kick a bit.
  • No need to waste ammunition.
  • CB radios (handheld especially) are worthless for anything more than a few miles. Become a Ham and have a clue. :-).
  • Have a knife — it is quite possibly the most useful tool you can possess at any time, anywhere.
  • In the Zombie Apocalypse, everyone on the team should be armed.
  • Teams? Travel in them.
  • Have some useful skills to contribute to the team.
  • Have a plan.
  • Have a backup plan.
  • Don’t take chances if you don’t need to.
  • Only engage if you have superior numbers.
  • Drama? Avoid it. There are enough things to worry about without engaging in drama.
  • Okay, some of those are a bit petty. Some really only applicable to the impossibility of Zombie Apocalypse. Fun to ponder, nonetheless.
