Rise of the MAD Flu: Day 6

I’d been wondering what my mom meant when she said she’d seen things. I’ve never heard her so worked up. Steph got home shortly after myself. It was then that she clarified the static-filled conversation we had as she was driving through the mountain pass toward home. She told me what had happened before leaving early for the day; how she began to question everything she’s ever believed in, and come full circle. A child by the name of Robert was feeling ill. From what I’ve heard in the past, this wasn’t unusual. Robert was gone 3 days a week with [...]

Cotord’s Syndrome: The Living Walking With The Dead

Another danger to be aware of when the zombie apocalypse is among us is Cortord’s Syndrome. This mental illness has the patient believing that they are, in fact, the walking dead. More severe symptoms of this condition might include rubbing themselves with rotting flesh (attempting to mask their scent) and/or attempting to join a zombie horde as one of them. Linked to Schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, Cortord’s Syndrome stems from an inability to cope with this new world. In a world where death is almost inescapable and you are forced to make decisions that you would have never been faced with [...]

Rise of the MAD Flu: Day 5

There was only one person I could turn to for some perspective; my mom. My mom is known for being a little reactive in times of almost-crisis; Y2K, the Bird Flu and Swine Flu scares, to name a few. She has, however, been a nurse for over 30 years and a student of alternative medicine for nearly a decade. As far as I’m concerned, she’s the guru of everything medical. Under normal circumstances (if there have ever been ‘normal’ circumstances), I would be warned to prepare for the worst, followed by rational, yet extreme arguments to explain her reasons for concern.

Welcome To

Here at, we intend to give you the necessary information for planning and surviving the inevitable zombie apocalypse. Our name, 401AK47, as it is a symbol of preparation, does not necessarily mean that this particular choice in protection (the AK47), is the optimal go-to in every zombie attack scenario. One must always consider range, location and comfort level (what weapon, given the previous variables, you feel most comfortable defending yourself and your group with).

Rise of the MAD Flu: Day 4

It dawned on me. Not until this morning did I realize that Aaron, who works with me in our e-commerce department, also trains at that very base that is now quarantined. I wanted to ask him if he’d seen anything this past weekend that might hint as to exactly what’s going on up there. When he sent an email out last night saying he wouldn’t be in to work due to illness, I assumed he was taking the day off to play the new Call of Duty (his own personal crack). After a long weekend on base, what better way to [...]
