I'm selling my stocks in the seafood industry. Perhaps I will buy into the Apocalypse-Proofing and Nutjob-Humouring industries?

I'm going to need more than just some dead animals to convince me of an impending apocalypse. For one thing, instances of mass death among animal populations are hardly rare; they are only getting so much news coverage because of the timing of these events. They just happened to occur with a few days of each other, which causes people to form connections that aren't really there. It's called the clustering illusion; people see patterns where none exist. The events are far too widespread to have a single cause, and therefore, are unrelated.

However, if the apocalypse were to occur (and I wasn't just killed instantly) my plan is to fall back on my zombie apocalypse plan, more or less. Grab several of my friends, hit the gun shop up for some weaponry, and then take over Costco for food and fuel purposes. Hold out as long as I can.

Neither the gun shop nor the Costco are at malls. Both are fairly removed from the rest of the major shopping centers. Costco itself could be seen as a major shopping center, hence why the backup is important, and we hit the gun shop first.

Besides which, this is only my current zombie plan/general apocalypse plan. Once I manage to get a decent paying job, or save up some money, I will carry out my much fuller, safer, and more detailed plan.

The downside to this plan, is that it is everyone's plan. You'd arrive at the gun shop to find a huge crowd of people, or it already completely looted. Then you'd head off to Costco to find barriers already in place by the same people who got to the gun store before you. Personally, I'd hijack a Semi, acquire a very large fuel tank and somehow get it filled. Load up on chickens and maybe a couple cattle. Haul ass to Baja California and hopefully live alone, or with loved ones picked up on the way, on a beach with a self-sustaining farm.

Hence why it is plan B, with plan A being out of my broke self's price range currently. Besides, I have weapons, it's just the ammo part that is difficult to stockpile with no money. Since the looting and panic don't ever set in right away (people, despite their talk, always half faith the government will rescue them up until it doesn't) I have time to hit these places before people can react properly.

Yesterday, I got told that the item directly to my left was now my chosen weapon in the apocalypse. That item was my walking stick.

The item directly to my left is a brick wall. I'm not sure how to wield that as a weapon. Unless it means a specific brick from the wall. In which case, I'm not sure how to remove that brick in order to wield it. To my right is my beating stick, though. Seems much more useful.
