Re: Next stop: Mars
Oh I have. Scary and gruesome stuff. But I'm willing to take my chances.

Re: Tough Call
@Dave: that's a valid question, but here's an even bigger one:

What if one of the people on the Mars shuttle has the zombie virus dormant in their system and it doesn't come out until you all get to Mars? Then you're stuck on Mars with a bunch of rabid zombies, no Wal-Mart or convenience stores to loot, and no buildings to hide in.

I'm taking my chances on earth, thank you very much.

@TerryB: Deal, i'm not sqeamish and I hate cleaning bathrooms. Besides, I'm not a great cook.

Re. your screenplay idea: throw in a tornado and you're golden. Will you invite us all to the movie premier?

Re: Next stop: Mars
@jastroff: That's a great idea! if we assume that zombies can't swim, then we just need to find an island that never had people on it, which means it will lack zombies, and we can just wait it out. Mind if I join you?

Re: Next stop: Mars
Do I have to clean the fish we catch, Susan? I'll keep the bathroom clean instead. But I can cook the fish, pretty good at that.

I'm liking my thought about zombie sharks, thinking I need to get a screenplay to Hollywood for next year's Shark Week. What's more popular now than zombies and sharks? Combining those two has to be a winner....

Re: Tough Call
@Drew: No way, stick with the zombies. You can keep your family safe on a boat and besides, as this scientist notes, the zombie apocalypse can never happen because carrion animals would eat them before they could eat us:

(sorry, I can't post a hyper link, but you can cut and paste this into your browser): http://www.enterpriseefficiency.com/author.asp?section_id=1151&doc_id=269130

Dave conveniently left this important bit of research out of the current debate because he's trying to get everybody to go to Mars with him.

Re: Next stop: Mars
@TerryB: You could apply for the first DirecTV franchise on Mars. but I"m with you, as Dave kindly noted in his blog. In fact, our colleague Sara suggested getting a houseboat and just staying on water as long as possible. You're welcome aboard. :)

Re: Next stop: Mars
@TerryB- Ha! I don't know if they can swim. they might float. Dead bodies float. :)

But I think the problem is that zobies are tireless. They will sit on the beach  grunting at you until you get tired of swimming and have to come in.

But you do mention an interesting escape-- a boat. A well-provisioned luxury yacht might be the best way to wait out the scenario if there is an end to it. And if there is no end to it, at least it gives you a safe place to rest.
