Someone posted a question online. What 5 things would you grab in the case of a zombie apocalypse.
Me, I have bad knees. But then I don't get far from my van, so I'll just make
that one of the things I take. In fairness, I won't stock the van for zombies,
so it just has what's in it regularly. Which reminds me that I need to get my
gym bag back to the van, so I'll have a towel.
Maybe I shouls also grab a bicycle in case I
run out of gas. That's two.
Three would be my dog. Four might be dog
food. Nah. I'm going to need a blanket or sleeping bag.
I don't have any
typical anti-zombie weapons around. The closest thing I can think of is a
shovel. If I get to shop around, I'd look for an old style bung tool. (That name
always makes me smile.)
Bung tools are used for opening the bungs on 55
steel gallon barrels. Back in the day, bungs weren't standardized, so the
bung tool was this roughly club shaped brass thing with various protrusions on
the end, meant to fit different styles of bungs. I had a job once that called
for me to use one fairly regularly, and I was never able to pick it up without
thinking "blunt instrument." It was a hefty, nasty looking sucker.
More modern ones are streamlined and
lighter. The brass is to prevent sparks against the steel, since a good number
of 55 gallon drums are used to store various solvents and other flammable
things. Sparks would be bad.
Heh. Bung tool.
