Default The object to your left is your weapon of choice in the upcoming zombie apocolypse.

What is it?

Inspired by the post here:

Looks like the best I have is a pair of scissors. I might be able to get two or three before I'm overwhelmed.

Really? That's all I get?

Maybe I get to call in an airstrike or something.

Wait, no. Pandora - I can start playing Thriller. Then I can walk away from the dancing zombie horde.
It's a long story... and trust me, no, you really don't have time.
There are some things you really just shouldn't take very seriously... Like everything.

Either a computer chair or my cat.

I'm gonna go with the cat. He is a Bengal so he should do some damage. I've felt it.

Um, I have a small plastic water cup, a crappy old cell phone, a highlighter, and a small box of paper clips. I guess I'll use the cell phone? I'm screwed.

It's either my cell phone or my english/swedish dictionary. I'd say my prospects are not looking good.
Wait, there is a red pen on the dictionary. That might be the best option.

I can either use A) a small steno notepad or B) an 18" long stainless steel ruler.
I choose B.

Well, I can either pummel them with a three hole punch or I can drop a small file cabinet on their heads

I'd have to choose between a roll of Scotch Tape, a stapler, some paper clips, and a street sweeper... hey, the water cooler line can get competitive

a (paper) coffee cup or my ipod.

I'm fucked.
Internet justice is swift and brutal, though not always applied equally or accurately. Still, the value of incinerating someone in a public forum should not be underestimated.

From nearest left to furthest left, I've got nothing.

PC Speaker, tower speaker (at least the small one can be thrown?), TV (good for one dead zombie), and a box fan (maybe another?).

There's a baseball over there somewhere... I've got a good arm but can't guarantee a shot to the face from afar, which is where I'd prefer to be with a baseball.

I have a hammer, some hard drives, and an old dead precision laptop. I figure I could throw the hard drives and the laptop, then beat them with the hammer. I might survive longer than most of you
