Notes on the Inevitable Zombie Apocalypse

From Nick Mamatas:

You are in a mall when the zombies attack. You have:

1. one weapon.
2. one song blasting on the speakers.
3. one famous person to fight alongside you.

* Weapon can be real or fictional; you may assume endless ammo if applicable. Person can be real or fictional.

1. The Traveller-vintage Fusion Gun: Man Portable. Given the situation, there's no kill like an overkill.

2. "Mars: God of War" from Holst's Planet suite. It's reasonably long, so I won't get sick of it in ten minutes flat, while at the same time being unbelievable kickass.

3. Shane, from Shane. I don't think he missed one shot in that entire film.

Hm, tough choices.

1. Maybe a phaser from Star Trek. Those things are darn versatile.

2. Baba Yetu, the theme song from Civilization IV. I can listen to that all day.

3. A red shirt, also from Star Trek. If only one of us is going to live, I might as well stack the deck in my favor.

Can you stun a zombie?

A red shirt? I guess I was making a lot of assumptions about the script...
