hava fundraiser and zombie tools

(Note: This post contains images and text that contain arguably gratuitous amounts of blood and profanity. If either cause you problems, feel free to skip it.)

When it comes to zombies, my preferred weapon is something along the lines of "orbit-based kinetic strike" (a concept which, coincidentally, appears to be featured in the upcoming GI Joe movie), but something tells me that we are not going to have that kind of hardware if/when the […]
