Preparing For Emergencies

Neil Gaiman's Journal links to a UK site called Preparing For Emergencies. I think they missed two vital points. In the event of zombie attacks, zombies can be disposed of not only by removing the head/brains but also with fire. Also, if an alien invasion is under way, the first thing any person should do upon meeting an alien is to say "Welcome to Earth!" and extend a handshake in friendship.

Two quotations. Under "Preparing for an emergency - What you can do:"
Look, it's an emergency. How are you supposed to prepare for it? It's in the bloody dictionary. "A serious situation or occurrence that happens unexpectedly and demands immediate action." If you expect it, it's not an emergency, is it? Honestly.
And under "Things to Remember:"
If you are involved in any emergency it is important to: (1) Run like hell, particularly if you caused the emergency. (2) Trample all others in your desperate attempt to escape. (3) Loot on the way out.
Words to live by.
