Lake Worth, Florida Has Been Accidentally Sending Out Zombie Alert Messages Since Hurricane Irma.

Yup. You read that correctly. However in reality, this is both funny and not funny. When you think of things that shouldn’t be messed around with, one of them is DEFINITELY public alert systems.  Unfortunately, warning systems haven’t had the best year, ranging from the false emergency alert from Hawaii accidentally informing the public of an incoming missile that didn’t exist to the Department of Justice’s Amber Alert … Continue reading Lake Worth, Florida Has Been Accidentally Sending Out Zombie Alert Messages Since Hurricane Irma.

The Longest-Delayed Game Sequel Ever (Nope; it’s not Duke Nukem Forever)

“ZombiU” is actually a sequel to prior game in the series…

Chances are now that many of you fellow gamers are enjoying playing your brand new Wii U system that just came out this past Sunday (if you’re curious about the system, CLICK HERE).  One game in particular for the system, Ubisoft’s ZombiU, is actually a sequel to a game released 26 years, in fact, many people don’t even realize that it’s even a sequel at all.  At first is may seem that the oddly-spelled title was a reference to Nintendo’s console — as with their history of adding “Super” in many Super Nintendo games, “64” at the end of Nintendo 64 titles, “DS” or “3DS” in some form on Nintendo DS games, and “Wii” to many Wii titles — but it’s actually a reference to its predecessor, entitled Zombi.

Actually, there’s really no need to go into any further detail into what this nice little toy is about.   Continue reading “The Dismembering, Freaky Zombie Plush Doll; D’AWWWW!”

Learn Geography….based on a possible Zombie Apocalypse!

Sorry fellow nerds, but no “The Great Gatsby” hat-trick/triple crown today.  However, I think this will do just fine.

Hockey and horse-racing terms aside, when it comes to education in America, we certainly can do better; we are declining in science and math, and many of our citizens are unable to even point out familiar states, provinces and countries on a map.  One could assume that this decline could in fact be the first step to a probable zombie apocalpse, and if so, thank goodness for educator David Hunter.  Hunter, a fan of geography AND zombies, developed a full middle school geography curriculum taught in the context of a Zombie Apocalypse. His project combines textbooks, teaching plans, and creative role-playing simulation to engage learning.  Teachers and students will be able to learn real world geographic concepts by learning and applying their knowledge to survive in a world flooded by zombies with help of the curriculum’s books and learning materials.

WARNING: NEVER Invite Zombies to Your Wedding

AUURGH!! ZOMG!! ZOMBIES!! OH NOES!! These are the engagement photos of a couple, Juliana and Ben, taken by Amanda Rynda. I have seen engagement photos take themes that were common/typical/traditional, but I’ve seen some more original (or less common) themes such as: college campuses (i.e., Texas A&M), football stadiums, video games, and more. I must say that this is the first time I’ve seen a … Continue reading WARNING: NEVER Invite Zombies to Your Wedding
