    The article tells you to deal with Zombies in the same way you'd deal with a natural disaster.

    Yeah because I'd fight off a hurricane with a pick axe and a sawed-off shot gun.

    Awww shit, I knew this day would come.

    Luckily, I have a shelter for just such an occasion and Resident Evil has taught me many Zombie-fighting skills.

    Very shrewd play there CDC. Notice how all the precautions add "could also be applied to a earthquake". This is a joke article title to get people to read info about preapring for real natural disasters.

    Even the CDC has succumbed to the age of Idiocy. When will it end.

    It is clearly a play to force you to prepare for real emergencies by using something many people will read and pay attention to.

    Hell.
    It's another news submission thing, dumbasses. Fox News is just fishing for more bullshit stories. Saw this on /x/ the other day, damn this spread fast.
    Wait, holy shit. It WAS.

    I guess the CDC has been really bored lately.
    Nothing better to do?

    You guys may think this is stupid, but I'm praying this is real. I would LOVE a Zombie Apocalypse. As long as they're not the Zombies from 28 days/weeks later. They're too fast. Zombieland Zombies... uhh yeah sure, they stumble while they run.

    I would love it if I got to at least see one real zombie before I died.
