Well, this is certainly colorful... makes me think of the comparison of what our women here would react to such a situation (the Milla Jovovich response) vs. a feral Sheila from the bush back in Oz. Imagine a woman wearing no makeup, a kneelength print dress with an apron, wearing pig slopping galoshes, with her hair pulled back in a tight bun (top knot style), wielding a pineapple and cane chopping machete. Kinda a throwback to the "Ma Kettle" look if you know what I mean. Ya gotta be careful out in the bush these days. If one of them women gets her hands on ya, you'll be muckin' the stumps till daybreak. Anyways, those women would be as nonchalant about lopping heads off zombies as they are about severing red bellies, browns and fierce snakes. I reckon they'd figure out that zombie flesh ain't good tucker like the snakes.

Wholly different from them "beach" Sheilas out on the Gold coast, or the "Mall" Sheilas that hung out at Queen's Plaza. Variety is the spice of life.

Less fabric on the ladies' outfits and more firepower.



I think up close and personal for the ladies and from a distance for the zombies would be my motto.

Edit Reason: was thinking of less fabric, forgot the "firepower"

LOL! Apparently you like to take out the zombies, the truck they rode in, and the bunker where they parked their truck! Good ol’ Barrett M82 .50 BMG rifle, if I’m not mistaken? Probably a nice choice for an anti-zombie group, as you can shoot a zombie and take out the ten or so that are behind him, too!

One of my clients had sent me a picture of a bomb toting terrorist after he was taken out with a headshot from about a mile away with the Barrett. That thing does a lot of damage!! I would post it but it is extremely graphic.

if you ever pull the trigger on one of those, you'll understand why it does that much damage.

With the extended barrel, you can wring over 3,000 fps from the muzzle with a 750 grain bullet. Anyone care to do the math to find the foot pounds at the muzzle?

Lessee, 750 x 3,000 x 3000 /450240 (the gravitational constant)yields about 15,000 ft lbs.

Compared to the standard 30-06 load of 150 grains at 3,000 fps

150 x 3,000 x 3,000 /450240
yields about 3,000 ft lbs.

Gravitational Constant: 1 lb (454 grams) at 31.5 fps/sec

And to put all those numbers in a practical sense, here’s what happens when you take the muzzle break off of a Barrett: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSC5LZh6bLE. I knew what was going to happen right when the narrator showed that the muzzle break was removed. The video’s not the best quality, but the lesson it teaches is pretty good.

Top it off with a trench coat and some kind of intense glare. In other words, look ridiculous.

With zombies, chopping off the head is the most effective means of dispatching them, provided that they are the slow-moving variety. So I'd grab a sharp cleaving instrument and go "axe" those zombies a few questions...


Christina, can I frantically drive north for 8 hours and borrow a corset? I too need to be adequately attired.

Hmmmm... zombies. I'd probably run down to school, raid the cadaver lab, and escape town by tossing chum to the guys. I would truly be ETS!
