Zombies – Vitamin the head

Here is an idea that could potentially save the human race. My housemate Ben and I were thinking a few days ago; if there was a zombie outbreak, for long-term survival the biggest problem is likely to be food – getting yourself enough nutrition if you’re holed up somewhere that you can’t leave. Now, in a previous discussion I had with my supercuz Indi, we concluded that ideally, you’d get to an island or an enclosed space like a football stadium that can be locked down, where you can grow your own crops on the field / pump fresh water.

Unfortunately, the likelihood (insofar that any of this is likely ;D ) of that is pretty low. So, the question is this: Is it possible to live off vitamin pills? Surely if you stock up on loads of bottles of all the various vitamins and minerals that make up the meat / veggies we eat then that would substitute all the necessary sustainance you’d need. Also, pills last indefinitely, so no worries about having to re-supply.

That got me thinking – if we can substitute our food with vitamins, so can the zombies, right? Mmm, vitamin brains! You find a zombie, point first to your head, then to your bottle of vitamins, while making encouraging tummy rubbing motions (“Mmm, gooood,”). It might take a bit of salesmanship to convince the zombie, but eventually, the word will spread as they tell their shuffling friends about these easy to munch brain-substitutes, and voila, after a few weeks you have zombies that are: no longer a threat, and also healthy! How’s about that for a turnaround?

(Re. title – Vitamin the head –  hit ’em in the head… as that’s how you take out zombies… yeah alright, back to the drawing board with that one ¬_¬)

    I think you just went off the deep end.

    Perhaps medication, rather than vitamins, is in your future.

    But I must admit that the line: You find a zombie, point first to your head, then to your bottle of vitamins, while making encouraging tummy rubbing motions (”Mmm, gooood,”). Did get a chuckle out of me. 😉

    Medication? I’m thinking more like the Nobel Peace Prize. 😉

    Funny stuff. But you can’t survive on just vitamins. You need calories, and without food the vitamins will just run straight through your system, making your pee a funny color and little else.

    I like your out-of-the-box thinking though. Interesting concept – Zombie substitute food.

      Cool site, and thanks!

      Hmm alright, how about if you mixed the vitamins in with protein shake? That’d provide the calories needed.
