9) Zombies

If this surprised you, what are you doing here? I mean, we’re talking about a zombie apocalypse. If you think the biggest threat to your life is anything but zombies, you’re fooling yourself.

Think about this for a minute: The population of the Earth hovers around eight billion people right now, if even a quarter of those people became zombies, that’s around two billion zombies. Two. Billion. That is simply an insane amount of zombies.

If you even get stuck in a building with a dozen zombies, it can put you in serious danger, so, once you start thinking about hundreds, thousands, maybe even millions of zombies in one place, you can see just how dangerous they are.

We’re not even getting into the obvious fact that all it takes is one bite from one zombie to turn you into one, so…just add that to the aforementioned danger of each of the billions of zombies that could be roaming around.

On top of all of this, is the fact that any noise or even our smell could attract them to us, makes the potential threat they pose even greater, because we just don’t know when they might descend upon us, or how they found us in the first place!

The bottom line is: The biggest threat to our survival in a zombie apocalypse is the zombies. They could outnumber us by millions, maybe even billions, they could withstand things that would kill us, and keep on coming, one bite, one scratch could turn us into one, and they would know no fear, no fatigue, no pain, no remorse, nothing to stop them from pursuing us. They would be our worst nightmare and one which would require all our skills, knowledge, and will to survive against.

This is why you need to follow…The Rules.
