|1.||Zombie Safety Count|
Your personal "zombie safety count" is based upon how many full force swings you can make with either a bat or a machete against an upright, free-standing wood log. You swing the bat/machete against the log until you tire: the number of full-force swings is your "Zombie Safety Count", roughly how large a group of zombies you can effectively handle before you're overwhelmed.
The notion being that if a zombie apocalypse breaks out and you're not armed with a firearm, you're going to be swinging for the fences .... at least for a little while.
I went outside today with my bat, hit the log and realized my zombie safety count is rather low: 3 swings and my hands hurt beyond belief and I couldn't lift the bat any more. I'm dead meat.
