25 Things You Should Never Do During A Zombie Apocalypse

Kill it with fire! (a moment later) Okay, so in hindsight maybe that wasn’t the best idea…

Set a zombie on fire.

Set a zombie on fire.

Yes, being chased by zombies sucks. Why make it WORSE for yourself and stupidly decide to set one of them on fire? There's nothing more horrible than running from zombies who are also walking torches. Let's just put the flamethrower away, okay?

Rely on a gun as your only weapon.

Rely on a gun as your only weapon.

You're going to make a hell of a lot of noise shooting down every zombie that comes in front of you. Plus what if you've never fired a gun before? You're going to run out of bullets either way and then what will you do? Go back to the gun store that's surrounded by zombies to get more ammunition? It's always better to find quieter weapons that are also more efficient, like a samurai sword.

Have long hair.
