    Yup. Apparently lugging around a boom box during a zombie emergency makes sense to the CDC. Not sure why; maybe they want civilians to play loud music so the zombies will be drawn to them instead of to the CDC folks who are escaping to their zombie-proof shelters? :paranoid:

    "Forgot" to add firearms? I doubt it was forgetting. Rather the government's preference that we don't have firearms.

    Actually, as a physician, I find the CDC to be one of the few civilian arms of the federal government that does its job well and is worth its funding.

    CDC field teams are indeed among the first into an area suspected of having a communicable disease outbreak -- sometimes at risk to themselves. In case of a Zombie attack they would be well served to have some weapons other than hypodermic needles, though :)

    Now if we could only get Congress to perform a tenth as well!

    Are you prepared for an imminent zombie invasion? That was the query posed by the CDC, and it was entitled "Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse". It is common at this time of the year to take into account a potential zombie apocalypse. You have to ask yourself -- am I economically ready, should the deceased begin to rise, walk the earth and feast on the living? Here are some tips and hints for being better ready. And these suggestions aren't just for the zombie apocalypse. Here it is: Are you financially prepared for the zombie apocalypse?. You may laugh now, but when this happens you'll be happy you read this, and hey, maybe you'll even learn a thing or two about how to prepare for a real emergency.

    OMG HE"S INFECTED! :)
    The whole Zombie thing is laughable on the face of it, but PPL burned "witches" with less reason.
    I am more affraid of the real PPL in govt that are using superstition as a form of mob control.
    When reason loses out to fear individuals turn from being free citizens to a mindless mob with less reason than a herd of cattle and all the easier to control, applauding as they are swept into the Camps and thier final soultion.

    Well this dead thread has risen so who knows?

    I havnt seen anybody point out the obvious though, and that's that this is just the CDC's way of getting people interested in having a few common sense items that will be useful in any emergency.

    I will say that "The Walking Dead" is about the only current-production show worth watching if you're interested in Survival/Preparedness. It's the only show that is on my "must watch" list week-to-week. (It's probably worth a thread in itself if there isn't already one...)
