When civilization ends, it ends fast. That’s one of the slogans for AMC’s new series Fear the Walking Dead. When they asked star Ruben Blades to name 5 things he would take with him at the end of the world he said he would take 5 cans of pork and beans.

We asked our Facebook and Twitter fans to name 5 things they would take. Their answers were interesting. Narrowing it down to 5 things makes the question more fun than packing an entire apocalypse survival kit like I’ve done before.

Many people listed their family as one thing. Some listed specific family members such as a wife a son or a brother. Weapons were big items. I’m surprised at how many people own machetes! Weapons listed included: brass knuckles with blades attached, 45s, rifles with scopes, machetes (some with the Rick Grimes red handle), knives, Beretta 92FS, AR-15, katanas, swords, baseball bats, and ammo!

Cars, trucks and gas were all on lists along with first aid type things, first aid kits, aspirin, marijuana ( I’m sure medicinal), water, lighters and canned goods, duct tape, swiss army knife and clothes.

Some of the most creative and specific answers were a compass, birth control, a deck of cards, Fruit Loops, M&Ms, Dr. Pepper, Chef Boyardee and sunglasses.

What 5 things would you take? If I’ve learned anything from The Walking Dead, it’s that you don’t keep things very long so I think I’d take small things.

My list might be a lighter, M&Ms, duct tape, binoculars and a screwdriver. I don’t know why the binoculars, but they seem to use them a lot on the Walking Dead show and they don’t seem like something you could scavenge easily.

Fear starts August 23rd at 9pm est.
