    This is Tiger Log Cabin's £70,000 (~$113,000) Zombie Fortification Cabin (ZFC-1). That cost is just for the materials though, you have to assemble it yourself though or pay another £13,000 (~$21,000) for them to come do it for you. I suggest letting them do it though. You tr... / Continue →

    This is a video from Novosibirsk, Siberia, of a bunch of beach-goers running for their lives (or to at least prevent bruising) after it starts hailing in the middle of a 99°F (37°C) day. I would have just stayed underwater. Still, God must be angry. Probably at something I d... / Continue →

    Note: Strong language. Turn up the volume and tell your boss it's a nature documentary, which it is. This is a video of two oil workers in North Dakota filming a tornado as it comes barreling towards their trailer park like a bee to honey. They're not really sure what to do ... / Continue →

    Because what good is accidentally causing a zombie apocalypse if you don't also have a plan to suppress it, the Pentagon has a strategy to deal with an outbreak of the undead. I do not trust it. In the event of a zombie apocalypse you should do the OPPOSITE of whatever the go... / Continue →

    In rare good news, astrobiologists have determined the earth should be habitable for at least another 1.75-billion years. For reference, that's 1.75-billion years minus 50 years more than I care about. The research was led by Andrew Rushby, from UEA's school of Environmenta... / Continue →

    I actually wrote about the development of RoboEarth almost four years ago, but since a lot of you weren't even born yet I thought I'd touch on it again. Touch = beat with a croquet mallet. RoboEarth: basically a real-life "central brain" Skynet that's being tested so robots c... / Continue →

    Google confirmed on Friday that they purchased Boston Dynamics, the robotic company behind such killers as BigDog, ATLAS and Cheetah. Google plans to harness the power of the killing machines to take over the planet and herald a new age of robotic glory. You know who made the... / Continue →

    Listen: I'm sick, so bear with me. And not sick like somebody who will eat food off the ground, sick like on meds and my brain feels like a cloud. It's even harder to think than normal (which was already near impossible). This is a video tutorial by Youtuber CrazyRussianHack... / Continue →

    On display at the currently happening State Fair of Texas (where else?), Chevrolet exhibited this Silverado 'Black Ops Concept'. What makes it so apocalypse ready? Hopefully more than just the custom graphics and yellow accents like I suspect. "Luck favors the prepared and t... / Continue →

    This is a shot of the fallout bunker built in 1978 below 3970 Spencer Street in Las Vegas. Above ground is a normal looking two story house. But 26-feet below the home (accessed via hidden elevator or stairs) is a 15,200-square foot basement room containing another full house... / Continue →

    What are we gonna use for currency after the zombie apocalypse arrives? Will it just be a barter system? My roommate says we're gonna use human teeth but he's one of the stupidest people I know. This is the Zombucks™ Walker 1 oz silver round. They cost $22 and feature a zom... / Continue →

    University of Ottawa mathematics professor Robert J. Smith? (who really spells his name with a ? at the end because he's A F***ING WEIRDO eccentric) has developed an equation for the rate of zombie transmission. And that equation is (bN)(S/N)Z = bSZ, not to be confused with B(... / Continue →

    I'm just short of halfway through 'The Last of Us' and already hate Clickers with all my survivalist heart. I don't mind fighting them outside in the light but I hate fighting them in the dark because 1. I'm a sissy and 2. I'm a little baby. I can still remember the horror I ... / Continue →

    This is an Instructables guide about how to make your own 'In Case of Zombies' tool shed tool rack decoration. SPOILER: Stencil and a big Sharpie. But that's not what I came to talk about, I came to test your zombie survival skills. Now let's say you and I are having a barbe... / Continue →

    This is a video of a couple zombies impressively parkouring around a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Obviously, if real zombies turn out to be this nimble, everyone's getting their brains eaten. Except me. I'm throwing myself into a volcano like that little troll at the end of L... / Continue →

    Note: Their online store (which has a bunch of other Fallout gear as well as stuff from their other games) started erroring when I was pulling the pictures so if it's down just try back later. Bethesda Softworks is taking pre-sale orders for these Fallout Vault 101 sneakers. ... / Continue →

    How do you make a BigDog quadruped robot even more terrifying? Simple, add a cinderblock-throwing head attachment. It can actually chuck them pretty far too -- probably about as far as I could. So if it ever comes down to a cinderblock throwing duel to the death, it could be ... / Continue →

    In apocalyptic news, a meteor exploded above Russia this morning, injuring hundreds, and sending at least one blogger thousands of miles away into the makeshift survival bunker he built in the hallway closet. I'm not gonna lie, there's little more than coats and a vacuum clea... / Continue →
