Get tickets on the last plane out and grab your machete because Michigan State University is offering an online course in zombie preparedness from May 12 this year. Of course, they're saying publicly it's only for MSU students, but anyone who can't get past some old Registrar when armed with a blood drenched machete doesn't deserve to survive the end of the world.
Open Culture says MSU “brings together the latest thinking on how and why humans behave during disasters and catastrophes. Why do some survive and others don’t? What are the implications for planning, preparedness, and disaster management?” Along the way, students will form survival groups whose goal is to escape death, endure catastrophic events, and preserve the future of civilization."
I'll be doubling up on the practical classes in converting common garden tools into zombie killing threshing machines, and skipping most of the sociology lectures.
Do please join me. My undying (geddit?) thanks to Kym Charlton and Sue Lappeman for bringing this to my attention.
