Are We Facing A Zombie Apocalypse?
Zombies have been enjoying a fictional resurgence in the last ten years or so (28 Days Later, Shaun of the Dead, Zombieland, The Walking Dead). Now it looks like we are having a human flesh eating problem in real life. First we hear about the guy in Miami who was so hopped up on “bath salts” or a Haitian Voodoo curse (as his girlfriend suggested) that he spent 18 minutes eating the face off of a homeless man. Now, just a week later, comes reports of a Maryland man who confessed to eating bits of brain and the heart of his college roommate. What is going on in the world?
Lucky for us, there are some industrious folks out in Kansas who have put together zombie-proof condos. The condos are located in Concordia inside an old missile silo. This sucker was built to withstand a nuclear explosion and is considered to be “one of the strongest structures built by man.” According to the makers, the silo can support between 36 and 70 people for more than five years completely “off grid”. They have worked out the air system, the water system, and the military grade security system. There is even an indoor pool with waterfall, a workout room, and a home theater. All you have to do is go through some minimal training and cough up $1 to $2 million dollars for your half or whole floor condo.
Bingo, bango! Problem solved. Suck it, zombies!
