Zombie FAIL

Great article at on why a zombie outbreak wouldn't look like it does in the movies. I've long suspected that this was overblown, and now the internet has given us a real answer. (HT Sebastian)

Bottom line: guns rule.
Remember, the whole reason hunting licenses exist is to limit the number of
animals you're allowed to kill, because if you just declared free reign for
everybody with a gun, everything in the forest would be dead by sundown. Even
the trees would be mounted proudly above the late-arriving hunter's mantles.
It's safe to assume that when the game changes from "three deer" to "all the
rotting dead people trying to eat us," there will be no shortage of volunteers.
And that's just from the civilian population; counting the military
and police, we have another three million or so armed people, and instead of
just handguns shotguns and hunting rifles, they have machine guns, combat
shotguns, sniper rifles, assault rifles, sub-machine guns, grenade launchers and
the occasional taser, not to mention the training to use them effectively. But
why would they even bother? When they could just roll over swaths of zombies in
tanks, blast them with cluster bombs and MOABs and mow them down with miniguns
from the god damn Air Force that every zombie flick seems to forget about.

Seriously, RTWT.
