Let me pick your braaaaaains

All of the following is assuming a slow-zombie apocalypse that doesn't start terribly close to you. If it started too close you'd probably find out via the screaming. And if it's a fast-zombie apocalypse then survival probably isn't an option.

If the zombie apocalypse started today I suspect I would find out from

SEWIWEIC

I am _sure_ that I did not invent the above acronym for "Something Else Which I Will Explain In Comments". I am 100% convinced that I first encountered it on someone else's journal, in a poll.

And yet, Google insists that I created it.

So....
