Every OT needs a zombie thread <_<
Alright, imagine you're sitting here posting on forums talking on AIM ect. Now a zombie busts through your door, you have 5 seconds to grab something and defend yourself with.
Look around you, what item could you use to save yourself that is at arms distance and how would you use it?
For me I got a baseball bat close so I could knock his head off. I also got a heavy metal case that I could use to knock him out.
Now OT, how would YOU survive?

The only thing within arms reach of me is my mouse, keyboard and a metronome. I guess i could just drive the zombie crazy with the constant clicking of the metronome. Not sure how effective that would be though.

Jeez, just use your computer chair to drive it out. The real question is figuring out the easiest way to get to your favorite pub.

I wouldn't have enough time to grab something to fend myself because I would use the 5 seconds I have trying to figure out how the hell zombies really exist.

God, I really have nothing close to me that could be used as a weapon...my PS3 controller? I guess I could strangle it with my chain wallet. :( I'm usually prepared for this sort of thing, being such a big zombie fan.

I have some options. I could:

a) pick up the stack of blank CDs on my desk and chuck them at the zombie in a Dead Rising esque fashion

b) pick up the computer duster, spray it in the zombie's mouth, and hope it kills it

c) spray the zombie with an "antibacterial disinfectant spray" and hope it kills the parasite that has taken over the zombie. if it fails, at least the area will smell pretty when I die

d) run out the back door. it's only about 2 1/2 arm's-lengths away.

Why not chuck your PS3 ...or better yet, your Wii!!! I mean...that's pretty much the best use for it.

Because the Xbox doesn't cost as much as those. Plus 360s are backwards compatible. And you know, maybe the zombie came over to play the Wii with me. :P

My door is about ten feet away from where I now sit in the corner of my room.
If a zombie burst in, it would probably take me close to a full second to process just what the fuck was going on.
So now I have four seconds left.  A quick glance to my left and right eats up another second but shows me that, in terms of weapons within reach--the best being a pair of scissors, a glass beer mug, a pen, and a floor lamp--I'm quite royally screwed.  With my last three seconds I would reach out and pull over a set of crates and cinder blocks that my 360 is sitting on (sounds ghetto as hell, but they're old wooden crates and old painted cinder blocks so it actually doesn't look too bad) to partially block it's course, then stand up and kick my huge computer chair in to the mess of zombie, 360, crates, and cinder blocks.  Now this would buy me possibly five or six more seconds, and with that time I would sidle between the bed and my wall (keeping my bed between the zombie and me) to grab the baseball bat I keep laying propped up against my night stand (which is a huge carboard box on its end, also ghetto, I know, but it's between my wall and my bed so you can only see what's sitting on top of it).  Now either the zombie can reach over my bed (twin size) to get at me, or navigate the mess I made for him and try to follow me behind the bed (about a foot between it and the wall).  I like to think, that with the severely limited processing power of the zombie brain, my attacker would see the open walkway of six or so feet along the outer side of my bed and opt for just reaching or crawling over to get at me, instead of taking the longer, narrow, and blocked path behind the bed that I took.  So when he leans over to reach for me, or crawl on to the bed, he'll be presenting his head much as if we were playing a game of teeball.  Home run?

I have a pen, Headset, Lamp, Phone, Ipod, my laptop, and an extra chair...
Actually I have an easy way out no matter which way the zombie comes from so whatever, assuming it's a slow zombie, I'm outta there.

That is crazy talk...a Zombie isn't capable of the extensive moves needed for Wii games...especially if he's not using WiiMotion + or whatever that garbage was called.

My initial reaction would be to grab the chair next to me, but I do more damage with my banjo. I would disorient it with a cranium shot, then try to bust a knee cap, rendering it floor-bound. Then I would get on my bed, jump over the zombie, and escape.

Well, this is a pretty awesome thread, and here is what I would do...

I would grab my glass cup in one hand, and I would grab my digital clock and yank it out of the wall. I would smash the glass into the zombie's face and then I would prolly smash my clock on the zombie's head and wrap the cord around it's neck and choke it.

Afterward I would prolly take a leak on it.
