4 Reasons Why The Zombie Apocalypse Would Not Be Fun!

A short rant inspired by a text conversation!

Recently, I had a conversation with a friend in which she casually mentioned that the zombie apocalypse would be fun. To be specific, she expressed that she would like to have some fun before the end. Besides saying this as if it was a completely normal opinion, she was surprised I did not agree with her. Of course, a zombie apocalypse would be fun! Who would not want to be chased by dead people? Well, in case you need rationale, allow me to explain the many reasons why the zombie apocalypse would rank on the bottom of your “fun things to do this summer” list!

  1. The smell

Ahhh, do you not love the smell of rotting bodies, unwashed people, and bad breath? Oh, you do not? For further explanations, I imagine it would be difficult to keep yourself clean in an event in which people are out to eat you! Specifically, an apocalypse implies the fact that the majority of humanity has been infected. If that were the case, production of all goods would surely come to a screeching halt. Therefore, you can forget your toothpaste, deodorant, and frequent showers!

  1. The lack of food

As stated in the hygiene section, production of all goods would essentially stop. This means you can forget about eating fresh food, if you can find any at all, for the foreseeable future! Of course, any food that is left in stores or houses would be fought over by everyone. Do you remember what happened in the pandemic with toilet paper? Now, imagine if something you absolutely needed to survive was running out! Ooof, good luck not starving to death or getting killed among food scarcity and people fighting over what is left.

  1. The lack of internet 

Let us face it: we can not live without the internet anymore. Whether it provides entertainment, tools, or information, the internet is an essential part of our lives that we can not go without. Admittedly, you might not even have time to be bored when you are running for your life. Despite that, you will surely miss the conveniences that the internet brings. One great example of this would be maps, which many young people, myself included, do not know how to use. Unfortunately, google maps will not be telling you where the best spots to hide are. Instead, you will have to figure everything out on your own, and hope you do not make a mistake that costs you your life!

  1. Running for your life

If you have ever seen a zombie movie, you know that zombies will constantly be hunting you. If you have zero self-defense skills, you can kiss your life goodbye! Even with self-defense skills, however, there will come a point in which you can no longer defend yourself. Whether you are weak due to starvation or old age, there will come a point in which zombies will likely kill you. Now, try living a happy life knowing you can die any day if you do not find food, water, or become too weak to defend yourself!
