And Now a Weapon Designed for the Hornady Zombie Max Ammo

Ruger has introduced a special version of their LCP pistol known as the "Zombie Killer." It has the text "Zombie Slayer" and "LCP Z" in neon green on the slide, and the serial number is prefixed with "ZO."

Urban Exploration

Exploring the underworld of modern cities. In this case, New York. I think that urban exploration could be important practice for a zombie apocalypse. If there was a zombie outbreak, you may need to move around (or even out of) a town or city while avoiding zombies, or to escape a quarantine. (I understand why a government would need to quarantine a city, but that doesn't mean that I would want to acquiesce to it in my case). In a post-zombie apocalypse world, you will need to scavenge food and supplies, again while avoiding zombies, and perhaps other, less friendly, survivors.

Zombie Survival Barge

This may be old news to some, but since some of you may not have seen this before, check out the zombie survival barge.

(Source is unknown. The blog, Jovian Thunderbolt, indicates that the source is the Zombie Squad forums, but the Zombie Squad forums list Jovian Thunderbolt as the source).

Aliens in the Amazon?

I've linked to non-zombie or zombie-apocalypse stuff in the past, so here goes again.

The Daily-Mail, a British paper, had an article this past week with photos allegedly showing an alien and a blue flash of light. Says the article: "The image comes from a video obtained by noted paranormal writer Michael Cohen and is claimed to have been filmed by two British tourists visiting the Mamaus region of the Amazon."
While the camera is focused on some young children, seen in the distance behind them is a silvery light.
However, it is only when the eyes are diverted to the surrounding jungle does it become apparent that there is a small being standing side-on just to the right of a tree, appearing to arch its back.

It is the 'unmistakable' form of an 'alien'. No explanation is offered as to what the light may be.
Frankly, it reminds me of the video footage from the movie "Signs" that first shows an alien. So, life imitating art, or fake imitating art?

"How Everthing Goes to Hell During a Zombie Apocalypse"

Some more zombie humor for you--a graphic explaining how the zombie apocalypse starts and quickly goes to hell, all because of "some A-hole scientist doing shit he shouldn't be doing." And we're not talking evil, greedy shit, but just plain too-stupid-to-live type stuff.

Wired -- Top 10 Reasons It Sucks to Be A Zombie

Wired magazine offers the top 10 reasons it sucks to be a zombie. I would think that being dead would be somewhere in the top 10, but apparently it didn't quite make it.

Reason number 5--"People are constantly breeding exotic plants to stop you from invading their houses"--is in reference to the game "Plants vs. Zombies." I haven't played it, so I can't give you a review.

A Russian AR?

The Firearms Blog reports that Molot, a subsidiary of Izhmash (the primary firearms for the Russian military) is producing an AR. There is no information as to caliber, whether these are being built for export, price, etc., but there are a couple photos of the weapon. Since the Russian Army has announced that it will not be ordering any new rifles for at least two (2) years, this may be an attempt to increase foreign sales. I'm predicting that with their own version manufactured in-country, that the Russian military will slowly start to adopt the AR.

Sniper! No, Sniping!!!

A funny "Dora the Explorer" parody.

Architecture Contest for Zombie-Proof Structures

If you remember episode 2 of "The Walking Dead," you may remember how the group was caught by zombies in a department store in Atlanta. While the back entrances were apparently secure (steel doors and such), the zombies were eventually able to smash their way through the glass doors at the main entrance. So, I'm pleased to see that architects are beginning to take the zombie threat seriously, with a competition to design zombie-proof structures. From the article:

To help us prepare for this potential undead disaster, the folks at Architects Southwest, an architecture firm based in Louisiana, have launched the 2011 Zombie Safe House Competition. The organization has tasked artists, architects and other zombie enthusiasts with one goal: Design a haven that can withstand a full-on zombie assault on civilization as we know it.

Brownells Sees the Inevitable and Now Offers Zombie Advice

I guess the TTAG link I had the other day concerning the Hornady Zombie Max ammo also linked to this page at Brownell's web-site, offering advice for the aspiring zombie hunter. As some of you know, Brownell's is one of the oldest and largest sellers of firearm accessories and parts in the United States, if not the world. Maybe MidwayUSA will see the light too. And how about Magpul? ....

More on Hornady's Zombie Max Ammo

Great video from Hornady to advertise for their Zombie Max Ammo. According to the Firearms Blog, sales are brisk. I haven't seen any in local stores yet, but am hoping to give it shot.

First Nicholas Cage, Now John Travolta...

A short time ago, I'd posted to an article about an antique dealer that had a photo, he claimed, if Nicholas Case dating from the 19th Century. Now he is claiming he has found a similar photo of John Travolta.

What gives? I've looked at the photos and they appear to me to bear more than a passing resemblance to the actors. One, I could fathom--after all, there must be a limited number of combinations of facial features, with the result that there are dopplegangers, so to speak, out there. But two similar photos having been "discovered" in such a short time bespeaks fakery more than coincidence; possibly a "viral" marketing campaign for a new movie.

If they are real, I would advise both actors to read "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward" by H.P. Lovecraft, and be warned.
