The zombie apocalypse

You know how many of the zombie apocalypse stories start off with a drug - usually tested for the military - gone wrong?

A friend of mine sent me a link to this story, about how the military are trying to figure out a way to delay dying on the battlefield... by creating a type of "zombies". Of course they're starting with pigs - but is that better?

I don't see how this idea can end well. When I first read the news article, my first thought was of this other story... where no one could eat the undead animals. Then I thought about zombies in general... created by a drug trial gone awry.

I guess if the zombie apocalypse is on the horizon, it's time to start getting ready. I'm going to re-read The Zombie Survival Guide. If you don't have the book, you could ask for it as a gift this holiday season. Just in case.
