But after a recent spate of zombie-esque occurrences in America over the past month we are starting to think it may be worth thinking about some options if a zombie apocalypse hits.
Leading us to these thoughts are the recent news of zombie like attacks. So far a man has been shot dead after he was found ‘chewing the face off’ another man in broad daylight in Florida (you can see the surveillance footage of that here). The report was that “a naked man was discovered in downtown Miami on Saturday, May 26, in the process of chewing off the face of another man. The attacker, who had already devoured the victim’s eyes, nose and ears, growled at a police officer, who shot him several times after numerous orders to desist. The victim was left fighting for his life, with 75% of his face missing.”
Just at the end of May another man was arrested after he was found to be generally eating people that he had stuffed all around his house, a head here, an arm there. Alexander Kinyua, 21, an electrical-engineering student was arrested at his home for cannibalism.
Also at the end of last month, Wayne Carter from New Jersey allegedly cut out his intestines and threw them at police.
So there we have it, we clearly need to prepare for the worst. Here are our suggestions for the best places in London to survive a zombie apocalypse.
The Shard : They ain’t crawling up this slippery sky high building, just don’t forget to bring food with you.
A Whitelys : The biggest Whitelys you can find is clearly a good option, plenty of food and you can while away the rest of your days trying on clothes and shoes and watching the news unfold in the electronic shops. Just remember to get up to the top floor and bolt the doors downstairs.
The top of a very high block : Attack the Block may have been alien based but as far as the films have told us zombies can’t climb walls or use lifts so you’ll be fine at the top of a block providing you take food and don’t miss any fire escape stairs.
Thames House : Surely the most secure place you could find and home to the MI5. A great option as they will surely know what’s going on and if all else fails you can get in a boat and sail off to find somewhere that may not be affected (by all accounts zombies can’t swim either)
