    In a zombie apocalypse, what is the one thing you would want to have on you at all times and why?

    What one thing do you believe would be most crucial to carry at all times to give you the best chance of survival?

    A knife, minimum. Preferably a machete of some description. It would never run out of bullets, and you've always got defense on you; maybe a wind up flash light, sustainable without batteries.

    ...I haven't thought about this frequently... no.

      I agree - big knife of some sort! I can tell that you haven't given this too much thought. LOL

      I agree. Something sharp is definitely the answer. It allows for quiet defense. Stealth is critical in these zombie times... A lock-picking kit would definitely come in handy as well. You could bunker down almost anywhere.

    A copy of Michael Jackson's Thriller ..... That way if they came after me .. I could play that and we would all break into uncontrollable dance.

      I would totally love to see that! But what to you do when the song finishes or you can't possibly keep dancing?

    A bite proof Haz Mat suit and some kind of lightweight belt fed weapon and a tank, and a flame thrower and I want the suit to be able to fly so if things get too scary, I can just fly over their heads and regroup.

      Well thought out. Any idea how the suit would fly if you're carrying a flame thrower? I'm no expert on weaponry but I'm pretty sure those are pretty heavy.

      Well......er...no. Have no idea how the suit would fly or how the heavy flame thrower would work--they are just so cool though I suppose not the most effective weapon against zombies.

      That Haz Mat suit will be no good if it's hot outside! You'll be a boiling hot treat.

    A taser.

    I want a nice, high quality taser.  One I could use over and over again.  Rather just stun a zombie at a distance, rather than letting them get close to me.

      Ahh, see a taser doesn't do anything to a zombie since they can't feel. Maybe a gun would be better. Destroy the brain, kill the zombie.

      A good high quality taser would be nice, but I don't think it would work well against large groups...

    My glasses so I can see! Lol, but besides that a good pair of running shoes. You'll always be able to find "weapons" laying around. But a good pair of shoes that fit that you can run in are priceless!

      I too suffer from bad eyesight so I would need those too. I couldn't agree more that running shoes are important. In times like that, I suppose almost anything could become a weapon.

    A high quality axe. In a zombie apocalypse, only those who remain practical and smart will survive. I remember watching a youtube video on some of the best ways to survive a zombie apocalypse.

    Depends on what's causing the outbreak. Is it a viral or bacterial infection? Hazmat suit. A necromancer? A "Turn Undead" spell or charm. A parasite? Water purification system or other way to protect myself from infiltration.

      Wow. You've definitely thought this through. I like how you have all of your bases covered. Well done!
