Dart Boards. Kitchen ware and gardening implements. (upon entering a room i assess the feasibility of everything as a zombie fighting weapon. Kitchen Shops and DIY stores too)

Among the banned items are leaf-bladed swords, katanas, cavalry sabres, certain seaxes, scythes, machetes, etc.




The one thing that makes me raise an eyebrow is the "etc." So potentially EVERYTHING then? Rather sharp frisbees? Pointed stilletoes?

On another note, my eighty-seven year old grandfater has a machete. He uses it for cutting his peas. Edges are needed!

"the pub! she is closing too early!"

"you nay talk politiks! silence"

there should be a "gross stupidity" rule, mainly to stop people sueing over things that they've done, like triping on a pavement and sueing the council, or breaking a window, getting cut, then sueing the owner

While I would support the addition of "Being Bloody Stupid" to the statute books, I feel the comment of a certain Vimes is relevant: The Police wouldn't have time to deal with anything else...

Zombies. I feel a tow strap with a few bow shackles on one end would make a rather lethal mace-type weapon.

Hmm!!! Only four?

I feel some song titles comming on.

Alternativly, Anyone want an argument?

Right, that's it, sign off this post immediatly and start another one!








Yes, That's what I'll do.

I am reasonably certain that by the time zombies reached the wilderness of Wales, there would be some form of volunteer zombie-bashing force around. However, as many residents of this town differ from zombies only in their still being (in some cases barely) alive, it would be somewhat difficult to tell the difference. Possibly the zombies have already arrived? It would explain the terminally confused people doddering around the town centre and taking three years to do anything.

You're fine if it's a straight edge or a curved edge of less than 50cm.

Von Gast, do you need a hand when They come?

Does he use the machete for cutting his pea plants, or for splitting each individual pea?

It might well be useful. There is after all a limit to how many zombies I can squish single-handed in between running for fresh supplies of diesel.

I would say that cutting your peas is taking refined table manners a little too far, were it not for the fact that it's done with a machete.

Big respect to your grandad

Zombie bashing is going to be a bit boring if they ban anything that can be a weapon...
