Information is the key when the end of the world is looming.
Picture this scene.
The undead have risen from their graves and
are heading for a shopping mall near you.
发绿的身体 长长的指甲 还喜欢大脑
Greenish flesh, rank fingernails and a taste for brains.
It seems there’s no stopping them.
Preparation is essential when battling with the undead
so make sure you have read up on your enemy
and have built yourself a mini-fortress.
You’ll also need some weapons and a major exit strategy.
So let’s see how to take on the undead and remain alive.
Welcome to this episode of the Infographics Show,
Could You Survive a Zombie Attack?
Like a good boy scout you need to be prepared.
There would be nothing more frustrating and potentially fatal
than being stuck right bang in the apocalypse without an emergency kit of some kind.
Inside your survival kit you’ ll require some essentials
such as non-perishable water and medical supplies.
You’ll need a first-aid kit to treat any cuts and infections
but remember there’s no use applying a Band-Aid to a zombie bite.
If you or one of your buddies get bitten by one of the undead
it’s only a matter of time before you’ll start gurgling and frothing at the mouth
and discovering a sudden penchant for Huhner Suppe.
That’s Brain Soup for those who don’t speak German.
In that kit you’ll also need a supply
肥皂 毛巾 手电筒 电池 火柴
of soap and towels, a flashlight, batteries, matches,
a can opener, and some antibiotics.
You might also consider a transistor radio
for catching up on the latest zombie news.
Also pack a mobile phone with battery,
蛋白质巧克力棒 帐篷 还有防水盖布
some protein chocolate bars, a tent, and waterproof covers.
Your kitbag should also be waterproof.
Remember zombies can’t swim
and survival will probably involve leaving shore.
你需要刀 棒球棒 斧头 铁铲
For protection and general use you’ll need
some knives, a baseball bat, an axe, a shovel.
Weapons can be lifesavers in the event of a zombie apocalypse
and you can never be under-armed against the undead.
Consider a long distance rifle, a shotgun,
maybe a semi-automatic and lots and lots of ammo.
But it all depends on your resources.
If you have a flame-thrower gathering dust in the garage.
Now’s the time to use it.
Now that you have your kit and your supplies,
you will need a solid plan.
Perhaps you’ve made this plan with a group of fellow apocalypse survivors.
Make sure you have a means of communication with your buddies
and think long and hard about who you want in your group.
Human beings best operate in groups of 6 to 10.
想象一下 小队中有5个全副武装 资源丰富
Consider a group of 5 well-armed, resourceful,
intelligent and physically fit adults,
2 of whom have military experience and at least 1 with medical training.
Ideally you will have taken part in exercises with this crew.
Perhaps you’ve gone hiking or hunting together.
But don’t become too attached to your crew.
If they get bitten,
you should have no hesitation in shooting them between the eyes
and burying them in a shallow grave.
And you should expect nothing less from your buddies if you become infected yourself.
You and your team should be all be mentally and physically as tough as nails
and be ready to kick those decomposing walking compost heaps back into the land of the dead when the need arises.
When disaster strikes you’ll require a pre-determined assembly point.
You should have marked this point out on a map
并确保离医院 加油站 商店和银行等基础设施不远
and made sure that you’re not too far from essential services such as hospital, gas stations, stores, and banks.
Be prepared with a list of emergency contact numbers.
Work out all exits routes out of the city
and have an agreed upon time to meet at the assembly point.
Your house should already be zombie-proof
by barricaded the doors and windows.
Ideally you will be living in an underground concrete bunker
with plenty of supplies.
But higher ground is good too.
但 记住 如果你住在公寓的20层
But remember, if you live on the 20th floor of an apartment building
and the undead have infiltrated the lower floors
you will still have to get past them.
Make sure you are in shape physically and have weaponry at your disposal.
When you find yourself face to face with one of the undead,
aim for the brain, and hope for decapitation.
Leaving your zombie-proof dwelling and heading for the arranged meeting point
you should have a vehicle with a full tank of gas in a secure locked garage.
You may choose to use an ordinary car,
但越野车 摩托车 或其他全地形车辆可能会更有用
but an off-road jeep, motor-cross bike, or other all-terrain vehicle may be more useful.
You should also be as nimble as mountain goat on foot.
If you are an inner city survivor,
which most of us will be, consider learning parkour.
Running through busy streets you will encounter not only the rambling undead
but also physical obstacles
比如栅栏 太平梯 长凳 台阶和楼梯
such as fences, fire escapes, benches,steps and stairs.
你的动作要敏捷 得当 灵活
You need to be fast, fit and agile,
and the more obstacles you can place between yourself and the zombies,
the better your chances of survival will be.
You don’t need to be a backflip specialist
but learning simple vaults and jumps will put you ahead of the pack.
Remember you don’t have to be the fastest dude on the block
but you do have to be faster than the next guy who is also trying to escape.
Learn how to negotiate complex urban environments with speed and precision
in order to arrive at your vehicle in one piece.
By now you should have checked in with your buddies
and you need to hit the road and head away from populated areas.
Remember that the undead are rising from the ground
so a ghost town that had a population of 50,000
before the mines dried up in 1950 isn’t the place to be.
You will need somewhere that is not densely populated
nor has this place ever been densely populated in the past.
We recommend having a boat stashed at a harbor
and heading for a depopulated island with plenty of resources.
A boat on standby is good part of any survivalist contingency plan.
Perhaps an abandoned military base on an island,
might offer the best protection,
if you can find such a place in your strategy development brainstorming.
Purpose built nuclear bunkers are ideal,
as there is a good chance the zombie resistance,
may resort to nuclear warfare to wipe out the big cities.
These also have the benefit of being hopefully stocked with canned food
and not being built in urban areas.
Here you and your team can sit out
the first few waves of the zombie uprising
and plan how to rebuild the human population.
Remember – even if you consider yourself safe
never leave any doors unlocked during the ordeal.
Make sure all doors and windows are secure at all times
even if you are in a safe area.
Don’t split up with your buddies.
If you’ve made it this far together
then stick with the formula that works.
Sit and plan and work together.
The survival of humankind may well be in your hands now.
So, how would you survive a zombie attack?
Would you sit tight in the city or make a break for it?
What would be your weapon of choice
should the apocalypse come upon us?
