You know, the end of the world? Zombiecalypse?
The Walking Dead has been over now (albeit temporarily) for a while, and I guess I am suffering withdrawal symptoms. Thank goodness we got a heads up about this infographic about zombie-proofing your home. And it doesn’t stop there: it will help you stay alive.
I think the infographic was made for a home security company, so it might very well be a publicity stunt, but that does not take away from its interest value. C’mon, it tells you about zombie-proofing your home! Who wouldn’t want to have all the details in one handy image?
Here’s where you start zombie-proofing your home. You need six lines of defense.
- First line of defense: 450-500 yards from the house; land mines and motion sensors
- Second line of defense: 350-400 yards from the house; 10-foot chain link fences and razor wire bishes
- Third line of defense: 250-300 yards from the house; 15-foot by 10-foot trench lined with stakes
- Fourth line of defense: 150-200 yards from the house; 10-foot high concrete wall topped with razor wire
- Fifth line of defense: 50-100 yards from the house; attack dogs – special ones
- Last line of defense: 10-25 yards from the house; YOU
I think that is pretty detailed, but there’s a huge problem I see here: it requires a lot of space around the house. I don’t know if it’s just me, but if you do not have all that yardage to create the first several lines of defense?
I suppose you can focus on the house itself. The infographic also gives details on zombie-proofing the house from the inside. Take your pick: steel plates for doors and windows, explosives, backup generators, floodlights, blackout curtains, and escape tunnels.
