Planning Sensibly For When the Zombies Come

July 31, 2007

Let’s face it. When the dead start rising, we aren’t going to know what to do. Sure you’ll have read the rules of how to survive in the Zombie Surival Guide, but as we all know, sometimes the circumstances change and despite what the survival guide says, you have to cut some corners.

The folks at Your Mom’s Basement have written some articles about what to do if you are about to be eaten by a zombie and what you should horde when an outbreak occurs. Here are some snippits:

“…I’m a thirtyish office drone who has just quit smoking after ten years, and has been out of shape for even longer. I’m chum. Zombie chum. I’m the guy that will be left behind with a twisted ankle plaintively begging my fellow survivors “Wait! Don’t leave me! DON’T LEAVE MEEEEEEE!” …I fully intend to let my voice trail off like that too, just to haunt their dreams a little. I am not above a guilt trip.”

“…Imagine: some poor, heroic but doomed volunteer fireman is cornered in an alley. Four or five half-eaten zombies shamble towards him, intent on eating his head. His hands will be empty, and as he frantically presses back against that alley wall in abject terror, in the back of his mind he’ll be really, really pissed off that I managed to steal every hammer in town. Sorry, random dude. Maybe you could have hoarded less of the Powerbars.

Things I Shouldn’t see in the Morning #1

July 31, 2007

Anime character costumes made by buildipstudiosigma that look like they’ve been ripped out of their shows and are walking around in the real world giggling and giving the peace sign to anyone with a camera. I sincerely hope I’m not the only one who feels a little scared by this. If I saw that walking towards me on the street, I would scream and hit it with something hard over and over again until it ceased to move. But then again, I have a lifesize doll phobia so I suppose that’s expected.

The Many Sketches of John Leech

July 30, 2007


From 1841 to his death in 1864, John Leech’s cartoons in Punch Magazine were a major feature. The archives contain over 600 of Leech’s sketches and more are still being added (the creators of the site have 2000 in total). I’ve always enjoyed editorial cartoons from different ages in history and these are a great example. Where else would you find an editorial that states that a good way to get away from a nagging wife is to inhale ether? And where else would you see the almost alien outfits worn in a cricket game?

How to Deal With Frustrating Faculty

July 30, 2007

(click image for bigger version)

I think this can be said about all faculty in a school. I recall the dean of my campus telling us all with a half-smile on his face that the students had no right to advise him on the poor quality of one of our teachers. Makes me glad I’m out of school so I can deal with this stuff in the REAL world.

Here comes…DR.TRAN!

July 30, 2007

What action movie can you find that stars a confused Asian boy who gets angry at the announcer for his trailer invading his personal life. Not to mention seeing him feel shocked over “hot dickings”.

And There. Are. MORE.
