Talk about some intense family drama: TVLine claims to have the character descriptions for AMC’s upcoming spinoff to The Walking Dead. While the latter focuses on a group of strangers coming together to survive the undead apocalypse, this spinoff will instead focus on two close-knit families as they struggle to overcome the zombies hordes. Oh, yeah, and the families are led by a couple of single parents and Andrea. No, no, not that Andrea. A different one.

The season 4 finale of The Walking Dead left everyone in pretty dire straits, but in this deleted scene we get to see just how ready Rick Grimes is to kick some ass. Actor Andrew Lincoln drops the F-bomb that the scene deserved in this alternate ending that never aired. Now, since this isn’t on AMC there’s a chance that it’s a fake—but we doubt that’s the case given how convincing it is.

I’m not really sure if we should all feel safer or more scared because the US government really does have a plan for handling the zombie apocalypse. The fact that they came up with CONOP 8888-11 “Zombie Counter Dominance” makes you wonder what they know that they haven’t told us about.
The plan was part of an exercise a few years back at U.S. Strategic Command in Omaha, Nebraska. The idea was to come up with a plan to protect us all in the event of an attack and since there are already plans in place for things like biological and nuclear attacks, they went with zombies.
They say it was just an exercise, but just in case, I’m gonna tuck this cricket bat, shotgun, and crossbow in a nice safe place.

Hopefully taking along the family pet is part of your plan for the zombie apocalypse, but in the heat of the moment a pet might get left behind. That’s what happens to poor little Stanley the Corgi in this short by CalArts student John Cody Kim titled Steadfast Stanley. Will he find the little boy he loves, or will the zombies get him first?

Florida Senator Dwight Bullard decided to make a rather funny point when he proposed an “undead” update to a bill that had been introduced back in 2010. The bill originally stated that Florida gun owners without the proper permits can carry concealed firearms during a state of emergency—an idea, as pointed out by the Huffington Post, that’s supported by the National Rifle Association but opposed by the Florida Sheriff’s Association. Senator Bullard added a little extra detail in order to clarify what constituted an emergency:
In title, delete lines
2 – 3 and insert:
An act relating to the zombie apocalypse; amending s.
790.01, F.S.; providing
In other words, there’s only one situation that calls for that sort of untrained gun-wielding: an overwhelming attack by the undead.
Senator Bullard explained further:
“For me, as laughable as the amendment might seem, it’s equally laughable that people who haven’t gone through the proper training, the background check, the license to carry — we’re saying because of a hurricane or flooding or sinkhole, these individuals have gone from gun owners to concealed carry permit holders. I’d argue a crisis is probably the last instance in which you want someone who is not a concealed permit holder to carry a weapon.”
You might have your escape route and secret stash of supplies all ready for the zombie apocalypse, but what about the rest of your state? This map is the work of real estate blog Estately who has done an analysis of every state to determine which are the most ready to fend off the brain eating hordes. They took into account things like military personnel, access to weapons, the physical fitness of residents and even their access to laser tag for target practice.
If you live in Alaska, you’re looking good, but if you’re in New Jersey, you might want to think about relocating.
