Neurotoxins, airborne diseases, GMO foods ... who knows what could cause the zombie apocalypse? But if it ever does happen and the world turns into Resident Evil, you'll have to acquire a weapon for your survival.
During a zombie apocalypse, one's arsenal should always include the usual: gas mask, protective gear, water-bottle etc., and also a weapon that will save your skin whenever you encounter those flesh-eaters. My ultimate weapon of choice: the freeze ray from Rick and Morty.
A shotgun, a knife or even a bat might make for some sick kills, but the open wounds and the blood splatter can give off some deadly pathogens that can infect us in the process. But a freeze ray is simple, effective and deadly. The freeze ray does two things which will definitely give you the upper hand during a zombie apocalypse:
- Prevents blood-splatter: As it is a gun, you don't have to make any physical contact. Once the zombie is frozen, you can just push it over and break it into pieces. If you cannot stomach a broken zombie, you can just walk away and let it thaw while you make your escape.
- Preserves food: The most important thing during any apocalypse is food. In case the virus is airborne or there isn't an abandoned supermarket nearby, you can use the freeze ray gun to keep your food frozen and edible. After finding a safe spot, you can sit around a bonfire with your friends and get some grub before the walkers come to get you.
Is The Freeze Ray Feasible?
In 2013, German scientists were able to to lower temperatures by 119 degrees in seconds by using lasers on high pressure gas. Fast-forward to 2015: according to IFL science, a group of scientists from the University of Washington had cooled down liquid using laser technology.
So, just in case a zombie apocalypse breaks out, you know where you should be heading. In addition to that, I'd suggest you to rewatch Joel Schumacher's Batman and Robin, so that you're ready with your ice-puns whenever you fire up your freeze ray gun. Trust me, it'll make you look very cool.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is now available on DVD and Blu-ray.
