The in-laws are over here. My father in law fixed the cupboard, our busted kitchen light, and explained to us "end users" (lulz) that our bedroom light fixture is fine, we just needed to pull the pull cord to turn on the other two lights. (Wow, we feel dumb now.)

In exchange, we're reinstalling Vista on his laptop, and my husband is using Google Street View to give them a virtual tour of the town they are thinking of moving to in Florida.

So, while I may not be able to turn my own bedroom lights on correctly, I have the ability to match up an OS ISO and get a valid installation going without the original CDs. Thus, provided we have electricity, when the zombie apocalypse comes I will have a skill to barter. Smiley: nod

I'm a parent of 2 small children. When the zombies come, I won't need any bartering skill as we'll be some of the first to die.

You sure about that? I hear that small children can be traded for their weight in supplies and ammo.

Didn't know that you're a necrophiliac. In fact, I didn't know that zombies were vitaphiliacs.

Zombies never want to have *** with me anyway, because they only love me for my brains.




OH YEAH, I MADE THAT JOKE, SUCK IT.

I will cut you with a spoon and then feed you to the dead if you go near my children.

See, now I can't figure out if you meant me or Nix. If me it would help if you quoted the right comment.

Nothing like the now to start training the kids, that way if it does happen there is a higher chance you can all survive.

Handy zombie survival tip:

You don't have to be the fastest in your group to survive a zombie attack, just faster than the slowest member in your group.

Bullets can not only kill zombies, but also slow unwanted group members.

If movies have taught me anything, it's that kids trained from infancy to become assassins will be pretty much invincible. That's probably your best bet imo.

Honestly, your best survival option is to be the Innocent. But if that proves impossible, try picking up the Innocent up waving it in front of you as you slowly back out of the film.

Well, one of them can teleport, so there's not much we can do to stop him.

Numerous hidden booby traps all around the field of conflict will eventually take out the teleporter.

The ideal group environment can only be achieved by an atmosphere of murderous paranoia that borders on insanity.

My skill for surviving the zombie apocalypse is simply to keep playing MMOs till the power grid fails. Why the **** would I go out among them and die?!?
