RE: Fight Zombies, Or Go To Mars
@Zerox203- All great questions. Generally, I tried to leave those as open as possible so the imagination of the person being asked can fill it in. But my general impression is slow zombies and a built colony. Fast zombies are just a death sentence and you need to know the colony will be viable when you get there.

Re: Next stop: Mars
@TerryB- No ESPN in the middle of a zombie apocalypse either. In fact, no sports. Other than running...running away from zombies. :)

Re: always wanted to go to Mars
@kstaron- I suspect the zombie burns up in whatever atmosphere it falls victim to. But here's a fun though. I assume zombies don't need to breath. So what if they can survive the vacuum of space (our blood boils so maybe theirs does, too). And what if one was pulled to the moon. With the moon's lower mass and lack of atmosphere, maybe it hits slow enough to survive. First zombie on the moon. :)

Need More Info
I don't watch "Walking Dead" and for that matter never watched "World War Z" so I need some additional info about the current type of Zombie. In the old 1960s movie "Night of the Living Dead" if I remember correctly the way you became a Zombie was by being bitten but not fully eaten by an existing Zombie, though I could be wrong and I don't remember where the first Zombies came from. If the current Zombies have that trait then I think I might stay and fight. If however it is some contagious germ, virus or bacteria, that causes Zombieism then I would flee though I guess the ship might take the Zombie bug with it. So can someone fill me in on how Zombieism is spread in the current Zombie apocalypse so I can make an informed decision for myself and my family. Thanks.

Re: Next stop: Mars
Seems to me that the other humans trying to take your stuff would apply to a boat as well as any other place you could try to find refuge.

Re: Next stop: Mars
@Joe well, there's that, but I don't believe the guns are available in the New York locations.

FWIW: At least Wal-Mart has guns and knives.

Plan C does sound much more appealing. I hope the beach has wifi...

@Shane

I think I agre with you. I would rather take my chances with possible aliens on mars than be chewed up by a zombie at the local Walmart!
