Ha! Here's one for the naysayers. The CDC is now giving advice on what to do in case of the zombie apocalypse! Okay, technically, the advice is good for any diaster or outbreak, but they have couched it in terms that most people can understand. The article comes from Dr. Ali S. Khan, an assistant surgeon general whose favorite zombie movie is Resident Evil. We've got more info after the jump.
"There are all kinds of emergencies out there that we can prepare for," writes Dr. Khan. "Take a zombie apocalypse for example. That's right, I said z-o-m-b-i-e a-p-o-c-a-l-y-p-s-e. You may laugh now, but when it 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." Dr. Khan gives a few helpful hints for general emergency preparedness: things to keep in your emergency kit (though he forgot to mention a shotgun or pick axe), planning an evacuation route, and setting up a meeting place for family members. Of course, you could just invest your life's savings in this sweet zombie-proof house.
