Ummm ok I dont understand #7... the bike? Like a bicycle or a motorbike? How does that keep you any safer? Unless you are Tom Savini... Is he referring to the motorcycle gang... oh wait probably... nevermind

I don't understand # 7 either, stay in a car and drive over them, the bigger the car the better. I also dont understand # 5 (tight clothes). Have on the thickest coat you can find, and have a few layers on. When they sink their teeth into your arm and only come up with a mouthful of cotton, you will be thankful.

Come on, guys. Obviously, a bike is better because a car is going to run out of gas sooner or later. And you need tight clothes because jackets and baggy pants get caught on things, or they weigh you down more. Jackets and sweaters make it harder to fight, because they slow down your reach and any attempts at swinging.

Anon #2 kinda said it all. The list after all is based on movie cliches so think of all the ways people have been hung up and attacked in a zombie movie: Cars dying or running out of gas, baggy clothes and long hair getting stuck on things like nails or being grabbed and pulled by zombies. And if a zombie can bite thru skin and muscle they can bite thru your clothes. They may have heads the consistancy of jello but they always have strong jaws.
