It's 4 a.m. I am sat in front of a computer despite being told at 11 p.m. that I should go to sleep for a week.

Didn't sleep well last night either. Eyes open sometime after three in the morning and I just couldn't go back. Two nights with about two hours sleep. "Cuntmuffins" is the only available word. Was going to write tonight but I got a pizza and set down to watch something before doing so, so I had had food.

Three and a half hours later, I was able to summon enough energy through tiredness to turn off the TV.

So no writing tonight or last. This puts me under target. Hopefully going to make that up over weekend. If I sleep tonight.

In other news: I feel good as I got a big cheque. I hope that this lasts, but given my violent mood swings of late I doubt it will.

In the event of a zombie infestation, who would you recruit, why, and where would you go? How long do you expect to survive? Assume long-distance comms and international travel are out of the picture.

We've discussed this situation many times in the flat.

We've worked out improvied weaponary, and where we could get more.

The plan all depends on what type of zombies.

Shufflers are the easiest to deal with, in general.

I'd be heading north (fewer people means fewer Zombies). Need someone with a car or someone who can steal one. I think one of my friends can get at the Edin Uni rifle club cupboards too...

oh!, me I have car
and you have my permission to take it should i ever be zombiefied
mind you that would mean getting into the middle of edinburgh to get it (i suggest the rail lines)

I would drive up into the mountains of central PA with as many non-zombie people as possible, because *someone* needs to get eaten during the course of the...uh...movie. Hopefully syncopated_time would be visiting that weekend or something because I know no one nearby who would be as effective against the walking dead as she.

Anti-zombie squad.
Myself, 'cause I don't fancy getting eaten just yet. caffinomancer for size and nails. You for processing power, ingenious solutions to most problems and the garment of many pockets. Weapon storage essential. The DDS for swordsmanship and some of them can also drive. Hand-to hand fighting will inevitably occur at some point. random_redhead for vehicle operation and organisational talents. Plus motivation. She's very good at providing that.

As to where we'd go, first stop, storage facilities foras many coffee-beans as we can take. It ain't worth surviving if the coffee's shit. That's final. After that, Carbisdale castle up near Dornoch. Defensible, large, quite remote. And possesses some rather fine facilities. Assuming we got there and picked up a few extra useful people on the way, I'd estimate a healthy survival probability until supplies ran out.

Our flat is relatively defensible and also relatively easy to evacuate from if they get into the stair well - being first floor with a sort of balcony, although it is a little compact for a large group of people...
We also have convenient access to food (Scotmid just across the road) and antibiotics (chemist shop below), so location-wise we're in a relatively good position.

The van is parked a bit of a way away, but if we could get that round the front of the building before the zombies got here that would be a convenient method of escape for probably up to 20 people (we only have seatbelts for 8 people, but I'm assuming that in case of zombie attack that wouldn't be anyone's first priority.

The medieval group would be a good starting point for zombie infestation problems - in that we all have some weaponry of our own and at least understand the principles of seige tactics.

spudtater lives about 50 yards away, so I'd certainly invite him to run over here and join the seige defence team. And he might be able to do something cunning involving either potatoes or computers... :-)

Other than that a generic phone around to see who was available and could potentially be collected by van would be a good plan - though this place can get a little snug with more than 30 people in it... :-)
But you never know who might turn out to have the key piece of knowledge to solve the problem, so getting as many people as possible in the same place is probably the way to go at least initially.

Zombies and techno
Sadly, I'd be one of the initial clueless jerks who gets bitten/eaten while visiting my infected granny at the Old Folks' Home (which is surely the source of this particular outbreak).

However, being stubborn as hell, I'd retain just enough sentience to be a prick and hunt down all my remaining mortal friends. They'd get the humor of it, I'm sure.

Stew, has anyone ever mentioned that you look like Richard D. James?

Re: Zombies and techno
Who the hell is Richard D. James? *google* No. I have a much better beard. This icon is old.
