Geek Therapy Tells Us How to Deal with the Inevitable Zombie Apocalypse [VIDEO]

In the latest episode of Geek Therapy, a zombie apocalypse nut/The Walking Dead fan learns the difference between preparedness and paranoia from a therapist who’s rather more tuned-in to the survivalist thing than he initially thinks.

What do ladies do about feminine hygiene products in the Walking Dead-verse, anyway? Oversight, Kirkman.

The Truth Is Out There

Turns Out That Emergency Alert System Warning About Zombies Was Fake [VIDEO]

You might be saying to yourself, “of course it was fake” but think about it. KRTV in Great Falls, Montana broadcast the Emergency Alert System noise with a message about the dead coming to life. You can tell the voice is garbled and definitely not one of authority but not everyone was able to pick up on that. In fact, the local newspaper reported four people called the police to ask if it was true.

The station issued a statement saying, “Someone apparently hacked into the Emergency Alert System and announced on KRTV and the CW that there was an emergency in several Montana counties. This message did not originate from KRTV, and there is no emergency. Our engineers are investigating to determine what happened and if it affected other media outlets.” Honestly, I’m pretty annoyed at these people. While it was a fun idea, using the EAS is akin to crying wolf. When the zombie apocalypse does happen, no one is going to believe it.

The Walking Dead’s Robert Kirkman Teams With Hyundai To Make Zombie-Proof Car

We’ve all seen some obvious product placement in movies and on television and AMC’s The Walking Dead is no exception. You may remember the survivors making a little too big a deal over their Hyundai Tuscon in Season 2 (AMC later went on to give that car away in a sweepstakes) but when you’ve got a good thing going you should stick with it. That why TWD creator Robert Kikman has teamed with Hyundai to create a zombie-proof car in honor of the 100th issue of the Image comic book.

CDC: There Is No Zombie Apocalypse

It’s crazy times, people — in the last couple of weeks, we have heard about more than one instance of people eating people, and that is exactly “more than one” too many. Add in the tweet from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign about a leak of hazardous materials from the Institute of Genomic Biology, and let’s just say we’re all in a bit of a tizzy about a possible zombie apocalypse. But the Center for Disease Control says we really have no need to worry. (Even though they are on it like Comet in case it does happen, which it’s totally not, they swear.)

Is A Zombie Apocalypse Happening Right Under Our Noses?

At one time or another, those of us who love zombie fiction have thought about the possibility that something like that could happen in the real world. This happens to varying degrees of course. Some of us think some type of biological event could spread as quickly as any “zombie disease” while others have a back in their closet with maps, waters, and weapons they’d need in the event of a legit zombie attack. The former may want to make friends with latter. Some weird crap has been going on in the world the last few days.
