5 Uses for Cables in the Zombie Apocalypse
In recent times we’ve seen our lives shift in ways we never expected. Countrywide shutdowns and fear-mongering headlines have led to unnecessary alarm and panic. All these worst-case-scenario predictions are leading people to question whether our situation may be more ominous than we initially thought.
One of the interesting spikes in searches we’ve seen is related to the zombie apocalypse. In the last 3 months, people have shown increased searches for survival guides, stockpiling food, and have even wondered whether the coronavirus is the beginning of a zombie apocalypse.
Let’s look at which states showed the highest upticks in searching for zombie apocalypse over the last 3 months as we received more updates on COVID-19.
- South Dakota
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
- North Dakota
- New Mexico
Who Has Been Searching for Zombie Apocalypse Information?
Now let’s look at the states who have recently (in the past week) been searching for zombie apocalypse related search terms. It’s month 4 of COVID-19 in the U.S. and there are probably a fair few people preparing (or already prepared) to escape the hoards of zombies.
Although I’m not sure what South Dakotans are worried about, nobody wants to go to South Dakota, not even zombies. Same with you Oklahoma. And come on Alaska, even zombies would freeze before they made it up there.

Essentials Tips: Preparing for the Apocalypse
We figured if people were actually concerned about zombies, we should help them prepare! Here are some ways you can use cat8, power cords, or any other strong IT cables to help your chances of survival once the zombies make an appearance. If you’re already prepared, consider adding some adapters and connectors to get the widest range of use from the cables you acquire. Here are the top ways cords and cables will come in handy when you’re trying to survive the apocalypse.
Let’s face it, eventually, you may need to leave your house. There’s strength in numbers and it will be beneficial to group together with other people. Or maybe the zombies will show up and you’ll have to make a run for it. Don’t be caught unprepared. Grab those sturdy cables so they can be used to bundle together your items if your backpack breaks. You’re not going to outrun a zombie with a suitcase, so you’ll have to pack light.
Communication & Technology
Without a doubt, we will defeat the zombies at some point, and technology will probably play a big role in keeping us all connected. Depending on what cables you grab, you may be able to get ethernet access, create a spark to start a fire or send a distress signal, and maybe even rewire energy sources. Let’s say you even manage to stumble upon a bunker in the wilderness, and all you need is a power cord to get a computer started for communication.
When you’re dealing with zombies and traveling in numbers, you never know when someone will get infected. You may even have some unpredictable humans that don’t have everyone’s best interest at heart, so it would be ideal to be able to restrain them. Luckily, our cables are strong, and they’d be pretty difficult to escape if tied up properly. Even an infected person would struggle to chew through these cables, and remember, we have a lifetime guarantee, so if they prove edible, we’d be happy to send you new ones once the postal service is up and running.
I know what you’re thinking, how are cables going to provide shelter? Well, if you find yourself wandering the wilderness outside of civilization, (you’ll probably be safer where there are fewer people to be infected) you’ll need to make a protective temporary sleeping situation. We would probably opt for a hammock. You can use those handy cables to help you scurry up a tree and hang a hammock where you’ll be hidden in the cover of leaves. Didn’t bring a hammock? Tie yourself to the tree so you can at least get a good night’s sleep without worrying about falling off a tree limb. Out of sight, and high up, those cables will help give you a better vantage point, out of the way of any meandering droves of zombies.
You’d probably prefer a chain saw or an ax over a cable during the zombie apocalypse but those are pretty heavy and don’t have nearly as many multi-faceted uses. So how can a cable be used for protection? Well, if you’re really handy with knots (and have enough cable) you can use these to make traps to catch zombies (or food). You can also use cables to help you tow or pull things along the ground and even as a spare leash for Fido. Bring him with as your guard dog!
If by now you’ve decided that it’s better to prepare for the inevitable return to work, we also have some safety products that might help keep you from catching any zombie germs.
