    None, but I read up on them and that one was recommended by a lot of people.

    If it only had a bacon griddle built in....

    I can't believe you need to ask that question. Isn't bacon the obvious answer?

    It's valuable

    It would be widely accepted

    It can easily be broken up into smaller pieces

    But do we really WANT the zombies to be prepared? :)

    My understanding is that a nuclear war would be heralded by one or more nuclear explosions at high level, causing a country-wide electromagnetic pulse sufficient to cause a massive mains electrical spike that should destroy anything connected thereto; and also causing high voltages across any and every conductor, meaning electronics not connected to the mains would also be taken out, even engine management systems and your digital watch. The ordering and distribution systems for food and other supplies would be taken out at a stroke; your employer's payroll system should also go down, likewise debit and credit card readers; and if the banks and financial institutions have not protected well enough -- and I doubt they can have -- your bank balance and life savings will probably vanish without trace.

    A light aeroplane might make an excellent low-tech substitute for an ICBM.

    None of this will affect zombies.

    It's always better to join the winning side. At least as a zombie you won't have to worry about food or water or first aid kits.

    OH, for the AMEN button!

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.
