    That is the message that met commuters in Austin, Texas this morning, as hacked road signs warned of zombies.

    I didn't see any reports of anyone being hurt by the prank, which is good, because that's some funny stuff. I'm amazed it didn't cause any fender-bending LOLs.

    Seriously! Because you know if there was a real zombie attack one of the first places to go would be the Dept. or Transportation and then what? Who would change the signs to warn us? The hackers, that's who. Way to use your computer superpowers for the forces of good, hackers. We salute you!

    The good news is that I live at the coast line, so I can be out in the water in less than 10 mins (in a kyak).
    Bad news is that I'm also at the repercussive focal point for a tidal shockwave from the San Andreas fault line supposed to go off within my life time.
    Good news is that I have Vancouver island between me and it, acting as a tidal whipping boy.
    So I guess if zombies come closely followed by a tidal wave I'm seriously fucking fucked.

    I know I would be calling the zombies weak because they got turned in the first place and deserve the brain splattering of my 12 gauge. I know im ready for coming of the zombies are you?

    The greatest threat zombies give you is disabling your environment, they cut off trade routes, shut down businesses, no power, no water regulation, anarchy within the social and economic structure.
    You need more than a gun, some nails and wooden planks to live with the problem.

    But hey, if it was in an isolated spot they'd probably just section it off then destroy it with carpet bombs then weed out the rest.

    Just kidding guys it was just a test. If this were an actual zombie emergency you would have all failed! because you didn't run like the sign said.

    Yeah basically, assuming you know the general direction of the epicenter the best idea is to head away from that direction and try and aim for a coast because there wouldn't be a way of zombies getting off-continent supposedly.

    I mean, maybe 1 or 2 might stumble by a very small selective island off the coast, but if you think about it killing a few after running is going to be a LOT easier that standing there and unloading all your bullets while attracting even more zombies until you eventually run out, then have to barricade yourself until either you die of starvation, exposure, health complications or the military bombing your location.
