Preparing for a Zombie Apocalypse
Guns, barricades, and the walking dead, OH MY! This could be daily life by the end of the year 2012, but only some believe that the cause will be from zombies. Only the strong will survive and those who prepare are the strongest. It is necessary to start preparing for the upcoming zombie apocalypse that will ultimately cause the impending doom of the planet and life as we know it.

He predicted that “Appearing at the time of the great games of slaughter. Not far from the age of the great millennium, when the dead will come out of the graves” (Nostradamus Prediction 1). This prediction set off the fuse for many believers. They believe the “great games” refer to the 2012 Olympics. 2012 is only twelve years after the start of the new millennium, which started on the year 2000. The only part left is for the dead to rise from the graves (Nostradamus Prediction 1). The Zombie apocalypse...
