    I think we need a team of committed individuals.

    perhaps the model we need to use is something along the lines of "the a-team", the television jewel from the 80's. essentially 4 guys bombing around town in a panel van taking care of business.

    (i'll be "mr t", because I'm white, don't have a penchant for wearing jewelry and enjoy flying, especially in turbulance.)

    someone has to constantly smoke a cigar for the role of 'hannibal' though, so possible lung cancer is one of the pitfalls to this idea.

    do you know any smokers ?

    does saragossa know how to drive a ford transit van? I can steal one from work, so a decent vehicle won't be a problem.

    I think I do but he is a bit of a Groucho wannabe and kinda nutty

    don't know about that, but Lawrence is a good cook and a long distance runner, he also uses me as target practice in Chess!

    Ace your understanding of our undead counter-parts within society today impresses me alot. Unfortunately the situation has switched and now we are the minority!

    Now usually in this situation we would try the old "but we came good in the end" to try and stop them hunting us, unfortunately they have the mental capacity of a stuffed iguana. They simply can't comprehend anything other than fresh brains.

    Shaun of the dead proved that if you are willing to spend vast amounts of yime with an individual zombie then you can spend time with it and enjoy eachothers company.

    Restraining orders aren't nearly as fun as pipe bombs and swords XD and if you can make a pipe bomb you are in the top percentile for survival! I know JAK can throw a grenade like a regular commando so both of you are welcome on my team. I don't know of any vans but one of my teachers has a really expensive 4WD, it looks pretty tough and I can weld with a few spare hands. Perhaps we could make a new team?

    As for the third part of my plan I have done a little bit on paint to show the kind of situation I'm in but I'm still tweaking the invasion plan. Over and out comrades.
    And still, no one has satisfactorily proven, that it isn't opposite day.

    I still think ingenuity can win out in the end. I have just developed a brand new plan and it may well be my best one yet.

    indoctrinated dyslexia.

    teach midwives and obstetricians a method of forming dyslexic tendencies in all new born zombies so that when the zombie is fully formed, instead of desiring brains it will desire 'brians' instead.

    obviously the majority of the population will then be left unhindered and if you happened to be called brian you can always change you name by d pole to martin, quentin or even carmichael.

    an elegant solution to a complex problem.

    ok for "Brian", what about "residing" though?

    a caveat in the pedagogy of zombie dyslexic indoctrination would state that the method prescribed is only used to remedy the situation involving an individuals (zombie) desire to consume anothers brains.

    Its not a system devoted to absolute dyslexia, but is developed to manipulate a singular word (brains) or multiple words (if a situation arises that deems this suitable).

    I can see that there would be confusion with a system that imposes an unnecessary bias on an individuals ability to communication. complete dyslexia is superfluous to the original indiscretion of brain consumption so the streamlined format I propose would avoid such misunderstandings as confusing 'residing' and 'desiring'.

    thanks to your help j.a.k., I feel this policy is quickly gaining in stature

    Numbers are a flaw in your plan, I agree, had you been here right at the start of the zombie infection and had you implemented this at the start all but the brians would be safe (and we would be one chess book retailer less XD) but in the later stages of the plague we simply don't have the numbers to mke this sort of plan effective. Ah well back to sneaking around with tomahawks

    I'ts time to rumble.

    who will be accountable?

    ##thanks for changing the name kevin, if in fact it was you. ##

    That ain't fair TPL, you included me (St Kilda) but you left out A/C (Byron Bay) can you make sure some Zombies visit there, but then again they might like him!

    that's Gunner territory unless Garv is from the capital too (highly unlikely)!

    I don't know about Perth, but that's definitely Kev, TD and Lawrence territory!

    it seems that there is no realistic way of running and hiding from the zombies so why not become one?
