You may remember earlier this year when the CDC posted a tongue-in-cheek piece explaining how to be prepared for a zombie attack. Yes, funny. They slipped in some practical advice about preparedness for more realistic disaster scenarios among the zombie lines. A spoonful of sugar situation, if you will. For example:
Plan your evacuation route. When zombies are hungry they won’t stop until they get food (i.e., brains), which means you need to get out of town fast! Plan where you would go and multiple routes you would take ahead of time so that the flesh eaters don’t have a chance! This is also helpful when natural disasters strike and you have to take shelter fast.
Of course, they forgot the most practical zombie advice, including: Cardio, the double tap, beware of bathrooms, travel light, get a kick-ass partner, limber up, always carry a change of underwear, double-knot your shoes, and check the back seat.
