The owner of the newly opened Zombie Survival store in Florida said the shop carries everything a customer could need for an undead apocalypse.
Kurt Josephs, owner of the store in an Orlando strip mall, said the store's wares include surplus supplies from the U.S. Army and Navy such as gas masks, books, camouflage gear, backpacks, machetes and MRE rations, the Orlando Sentinel reported Friday.
"Zombies get people excited," Josephs said. "It's a craze right now."
The store offers zombie-related merchandise including zombie shooting targets that bleed when hit, zombie-related books, severed zombie heads, table cloths featuring fake blood-spatter and zombie garden gnomes.
"If you like zombies, we got zombie stuff for you," Josephs said.
The safest place to hide from a zombie apocalypse? Cornell researchers say head for the Rockies (but admit 'we're all largely doomed')
Researchers from Cornell University created a simulation of a zombie outbreak using techniques for modelling real diseases
They found that cities would fall quickly, but less densely populated areas could hold out for months
With fewer humans to bite you, rural areas create zombies at a much slower rate
Their advice is to head to the Rocky Mountains
However they conclude that using realistic parameters in their simulation 'we are largely doomed'
L.A. riders bail on Metro trains amid ‘horror’ of deadly drug overdoses, crime
Matthew Morales boarded the Metro Red Line at MacArthur Park as classical music blared over the station loudspeakers.
It was rush hour on a Tuesday afternoon, and Morales made his way to a back corner seat and unfolded a tiny piece of foil with several blue shards of fentanyl. As the train started west, he heated the aluminum with a lighter and sucked in the smoke through a pipe fashioned from a ballpoint pen.
Doors opened and closed. A few passengers filed in and out. A grain of the opioid fell to the floor. He concentrated on trying to pick it up, then lost track, as his body went limp. His shoulders slumped and he slowly keeled forward.
By the time the train arrived at the Wilshire/Western station, Morales, 29, was doubled over and near motionless, his hand on the floor. The train operator walked out of the cabin, barely glancing at him as she passed — as if she encountered such scenes all the time.
