God, he even looks like Bill as a vampire. And not in the sense that Bill and this Vampire were both played by Alex Winter, but that a vampire bit Bill and turned him.Todaty I learned that Alex Winter, perhaps best known as Bill S. Preston, Esq. in the Bill & Ted movies, was also in The Lost Boys.
On a video not entirely dissimilar to this one, someone opined "you guys go ahead and stock up. I'll be by with my gun to take what's mine." I asked why he thought nobody else would have a gun. His response: "I'm pretty sure I have better gear than 90% of them so I'll be okay."I suppose it’s bound to happen at some point -
Ever notice how many zombie movies like to portray zombies as the background threat and other humans as the real danger? It's because civilization is a game we all agree to play by the rules until our lives are threatened, and then all bets are off.During the 2021 freeze in Texas, we were without power for +48hrs, some were without for much longer. In the first 24hrs, every gas station had run out of gasoline. There were lines of cars a mile long waiting to get gas at the few places that had it. People began fighting in line, no regard for each other. You could feel the tension. Every grocery store like HEB was empty. The shelves had nothing. When they restocked, people could only get one gallon of milk and one pack of meat per purchase. People began fighting over the food. It’s astounding that in such a short amount of time, society here was on the brink of collapse. This was 2 days of no power. Imagine a week?
Not saying your wrong, but you also have to consider that freeze came during the height of the pandemic, so it was a bit of a double-whammy strain on our collective sanity and reason, i.e.: 1.) we had to stay home, and 2.) home had become uninhabitable. I lived it; it wasn't a fun time. We ran out of firewood, and had to rely on the kindness of a dear friend to bring us loads of his own supply (which is substantial to say the lest; he normally keeps about 4 cords at the ready year-round.) But yeah, it doesn't take much beyond a mild inconvenience to prove out the savage in a lot of us.Ever notice how many zombie movies like to portray zombies as the background threat and other humans as the real danger?

There's truth in that, but it depends on the community. A lot of people will work together in times in crisis. Now, it's vitally important to be seen as part of the community and not as an outsider, but if you are part of the community in a place that is community minded, things might not be so bad. If you are in a "hell with you, I got mine" place, you are in trouble even before the disaster hits.So basically if SHTF it’s best to be as far away from people as possible, because when the dust settles the glorious human race itself will be the biggest threat. In a way there’s a certain amount of irony here, seeing as human ambition might very well be a direct cause of our undoing followed by human desperation as an even uglier effect.
