We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community about the most creative way to survive a zombie apocalypse. Here are some of their awesome responses.

2. “I’d surround my house with treadmills.”

3. “Boat. Some kind a bigger luxury yacht. Gather food and supplies (maybe some other survivors) and head out to sea. Wait for a couple of months for the zombies to fall apart. Come back and salvage civilization.”
