Welcome to the end of the world, where the only thing more uncertain than tomorrow is the air quality.
But don’t fret, because this post is here to guide you through the treacherous terrain of this barren and desolate realm.
Here are ten ways to know you’re in a post-apocalyptic novel.
1. The only clothing available is made from duct tape and old tyres.
2. The only way to tell the difference between a human and a mutant is that the mutants are slightly less human.
3. The local super-market only sells irradiated food and water from questionable sources.
4. The only form of transportation is a shopping trolly with a “borrowed” engine.
5. The only thing more dangerous than the mutants are the other survivors.
6. The only thing more scarce than food and water is toilet paper.
7. Every conversation starts with “I can’t believe this is happening” and ends with “We’re all gonna die.”
8. The only form of entertainment is staring into the abyss, also known as the “great outdoors.”
9. The only jobs available are “scavenger,” “raider,” or “cannibal.”
10. The only way to win is to not play (or to have a really good bunker).
