Bonus Post: How to survive the apocalypse
The end is coming, one way or the other. Whether we come to a sticky end via zombies, giant aliens coming out of the Pacific Ocean or something more realistic like a shortage of fossil fuels, something will eventually happen. Maybe. Hollywood would like us to believe so, anyways. So, when (if) the end eventually does come, here's how you can survive it. (And note that all of my experiences with the apocalypse come from movies (and a little bit from Marcia).)

Something tells me it may not be the safest. Source.
1) Identify type of apocalypse. This could be very important. Are you battling angry zombies who have a shortage of breath mints or a tsunami? You'll have very different types of reactions. If it's a real world issue (in other words, not vampires) I would watch Doomsday Preppers (both for laughs and for preparation) and for a zombie apocalypse, well, Hollywood has got you covered. (If a vampire apocalypse, though, I would simply get a skylight.)
2) Get food and water. This is so you don't die of starvation and dehydration. (Obviously.) I would suggest filling up your bathtub with water, if you're staying at home. (And if you live in a city, I wouldn't suggest staying where you are. The aliens always seem to launch their full-scale attacks on the cities.)
3) Get somewhere remote. Continuing on from point number one, the aliens/zombies/vampires/cranks/whatever cannot find you if you live in the middle of nowhere!
4) Set up fort. I don't know, if you can find somewhere like the maze from The Maze Runner, that would be ideal. How many cranks ever got into the maze, I ask? Find somewhere secure and settle down.
4) Get your weapons of choice. If this is a movie, there's going to be a fight one way or another. My suggestions?

(My brother was very helpful for brainstorming weapon ideas, for some reason.)
5) Wait it out. Or do something heroic and save the world. Either or, you'll hopefully survive.
And that's my advice! I'm not sure how reliable it is, though, because I've always said that if I was in an apocalypse movie that I'd be one of the first ones to get run over by the alien war ships.
Do you have any apocalypse survival tips? And would you rather face an apocalypse via zombies or shortage of fossil fuels? (And by shortage I mean there's none left at all.)
