100 Word Zombie Tips #11 "If You INSIST on Using a Katana."

First, don’t. It’s a dangerous weapon in untrained hands and it’s likely to be a display model. However, if it’s all you have:

1) If you stab and get stuck, give it a quarter twist while pulling out to release the vacuum.

2) Aim for the neck. It has fewer bones to get your blade caught in.

3) Control distance. The katana is a medium range weapon. It is useless in close quarters.

4) Prepare for breakage. Your katana will break. Don’t be surprised. Wear protection if possible to minimize damage.

Just remember, this weapon is not intended for zombies.

100 Word Zombie Tips #9 "Be Aware of Your Surroundings"

by Brad Zipprich

Asking "how do I get out of here" during an emergency is never a good thing.

It’s one of those things that most people take for granted. You could be anywhere when trouble strikes. If you don't know where you're going, you won't get there.

Reanimated dead just knocked down the front door. A crazy person set’s their cubicle ablaze. The Girl Scouts are headed your way selling more cookies. The point is, you have to escape the building.

Pay attention to exits. Browse building maps if posted. During emergency evacuations, a dead end is exactly that.
