I’m one of those people that watches Zombie flicks and mentally takes notes on how I would have reacted in that situation. Most people seem to think that this is a completely useless talent. Now, after years of torment I have evidence to the contrary!
“What’s this?” you say. Well, for those of you too timid to click the link, I shall summarize. Hierakonpolis (aka City of the Hawk) is apparently an archaeological mecca and the site of many firsts, so it was fitting that archaeological evidence of a zombie attack be found there.
Specific evidence regarded the presence of the Solanum virus in ancient times and its discovery during a previous British dig, however it was not until recently that the discovery was brought to the public (for obvious reasons).

In summary, the next time you see a zombie flick, don’t just sit idly by as the film passes before your eyes. Take careful note of the many pitfalls demonstrated through the medium of film and remember them well, for you never know, a zombie outbreak may be imminent.
