How to deal with zombies

All of us have fears of one sort or another.

Fear of heights (acrophobia) is fairly common, as is fear of flying (aerophobia). Even a brave guy like Indiana Jones had a fear of snakes (ophidiophobia).

A sizable portion of the population, though, have fears that most of us would consider to be a little more eccentric.

Because Flagstaff sits at a higher elevation (7000 feet) than most of the cities in America, some of the residents had expressed concern that the recent sunspots that we experienced could hit their house. Since we are all living in the last year of the Mayan calendar, there are also folks who seem to believe that the world is going to end sometime in December.

Politics, of course, always attracts some fringe nut cases, so I’m not even going down that path.

Zambies, however, DO cause concern for portions of our population. If YOU are a person who is afraid of zombies , there ARE a few ways that you can deal with them. One of those methods is pictured below:

A lot of us would snicker at the thought of dealing with “the undead” slowly wandering through our neighborhoods, but the fact remains that the respectable Center for Disease Control in Atlanta recently updated its handbook to include a section on how to deal with zombies:

The article on the CDC website, about zombies, was written by Assistant Surgeon General Ali Khan.

One of the ways of dealing with our fears is to have some strong backup. In some situations, the guy pictured below could be of help to you:

In most situations, even the “redneck militia” can’t help you as much as the man discussed in the link below:

the shroud of Turin

Since He literally walked out of his own grave on an Easter Sunday a long. long time ago, it’s pretty likely that He could handle pretty much any problem that you could throw at Him.

Incidentally, the shroud pictured above was found neatly folded in the grave on the morning that the man disappeared, and there’s an historical reason for that fact.

In ancient Jewish culture, when a diner finished his meal, he crumbled up his napkin, and threw it on the table. However, if he planned to return to the table again, he carefully folded up his napkin, and placed it back on the table.

It was his way of saying, “”I’ll be back.”

As far as zombies go, though, the best advise that I can give you is to avoid them as much as possible. If you don’t, you’re going to wind up like the individual pictured below:
