Zombie pop culture widely pervades now, and has for the past 45 years, at least cinematically speaking, ever since George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead (1968). This puts the zombie pop culture phenomenon at about the same vintage as the earliest forms of Ethernet and DARPA's first forays into developing the nest of wide-area data communications technologies that would in short order breed the phenomenon now fondly known, but especially at Halloween, as " the World Wide Web." Recently, certain primary cultural news sources have pinpointed scientific reasons whereby a zombie apocalypse COULD actually happen.

Therefore, we modestly propose to you these top 13 essential cabling skills and/or tools for the coming zombie apocalypse.
