Homeland Security warned, “The zombies are coming!” FEMA says get your emergency preparedness kit ready, but the LAPD adopted 15 of the DOJ’s ridiculous lists regarding ‘Potential Indicators of Terrorist Activities.’
The question morphs from how will we survive the zombie apocalypse, to how will we prepare an emergency kit without such “suspicious behaviors” and buying activities flagging us as potential domestic terrorists?
How do you kill a zombie? No, not a zombie process killed via command line , but the brain-eating kind. Boom, headshot! Right? We’ll get back to that because the Department of Homeland Security announced , “The zombies are coming!”
As if warning a zombie apocalypse is imminent, FEMA hosted a webinar  for its Citizen Corps encouraging emergency planners “to use the threat of zombies — the flesh-hungry, walking dead — to encourage citizens to prepare for disasters.”
It’s cute, funny and, with Halloween approaching, possibly a viral approach to disaster preparedness like the CDC’s brilliant zombie apocalypse theme . The CDC’s campaign  was so successful that it crashed the agency’s servers.
However after real cannibalism, like a man eating a homeless man’s face , as well as human heart and brain-eating  happened this summer, the panic also forced theCDC to admit  that zombies don’t really exist. Shocker! The CDC told the Huffington Post , “CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombie-like symptoms).”
