How to Survive a Zombie Attack (in Plain English)

Putting aside online documents and media releases, Lee and Sachi have created a new educational paper-based video that can help us all:

    […] like to suggest that, as we exterminate zombies not so much because they are zombies but rather as a tribute to the vast gap between who they are now and the humans that they once were, so, too, we should look at the principle of falling-somewhat-short-of-humanity as it applies to […]
