I remember the stories about people showing up at the shelters for Hurricane Katrina. Despite multiple public service announcements that the facilities were no-smoking and evacuees should bring food, meds, etc. they were showing up with a couple of bags of crisps and four cartons of cigarettes.

Regarding a zombie apocalypse, I’m amazed nobody has realized we can completely avoid that just by tying the corpse’s Shoelaces together before funerals.
