Survival Tip

Zombies are often portrayed as shambling, mindless things that wish only to horribly maul you, and devour your brains and/or flesh. However, some variations of zombie lore say otherwise. While there's no evidence to suggest that the former version is wrong, it would be a mistake to assume that zombies will always be slow, sluggish, and stupid.

If there's a zombie apocalypse, prepare for both possibilities. Once more information on the nature of the apocalypse reaches you, you can modify your defenses to more appropriately address your situation.

Likely, it would also be a good idea not to become set in your ideas about the apocalypse. The situation can often shift, and the zombie situation can evolve. Be prepared for the behavior, abilities, and instincts of the zombies to change, and don't get caught off-guard.

Swords would fail miserably in a zombpocalypse. But testing it out might be fun, anyway.  Not that I'm any good with weaponry outside the flying projectile family.

The japanese use tatami cutting mats wrapped around a bamboo core to test swords this is a rough apx for a human torso they cost about 5 bucks on the internet

This is why I am an advocate of practice -- try hacking at watermelons.  Bones are harder than that, I'm pretty sure.

Something were not accounting for is fear. even if you think you'll be able to overcome it, eventually the mental horror will catch up with you. Watching countless people die and become disgusting, bloodthirsty mutants. Having to murder all of your family and loved ones because they've become infected. This would do horrible things to you. especially because you probably wont get much sleep. Also, I think from here on out, we need to consider if we are actually going to be able to use these weapons effectively. Contrary to popular belief, machetes aren't super easy to use. Not a kind of thing where you can just pick one up and instantly cleanly decapitate a zombie.

contrary to popular beleif gasoline does not explode under normal conditions it needs to be an aerosol. In the tube between the tank and the nozzle it is anaerobic so it wont even burn if your realy concerned u could exchange the plasic tip for a copper one from hose attachments and some small metal tubes to make it laminar the velocity of the gas coming out the end would keep the flame from coming back the only real concern would be drips of gas coming back and getting on your hand this could be fixed by a small point near the end to control where a drip would likely go and could be handy if they get too close

the respirator is very good practice to prevent infection though no matter what weapon u choose at the very least u should use a surgical mask or a bandanna to cover ur face

The trouble with the SuperSoaker full  of gas is the igniter.  Flame running back into the tank will set it of,f and you need to drop and roll.  Combine your squirt gun with a Molotov Cocktail instead, shoot already burning enemies with gas to expand the flames; SuperSoakers don't shoot a pure,uncavitated stream so the flame SHOULDN'T come back to you and make your squirt gun explode  (your millage may vary).   Oh, and wear a respirator.

True, But i would try to keep from having open wounds. And i guess if i got it in my mouth (ew) than yeah, i would probably get infected.

Also too likely to splatter and infect you, Tyler.
