Bangor, which coincidentally is home to Stephen King, could possibly be letting its morbid imagination run wild. Or maybe this is just a fun simulation that allows first responders to brush up on their basics in dealing with potentially pandemic outbreaks (such as SARS or H1N1) while mingling with role-playing actors gussied up in fake blood.

 

Or, you know, maybe it's time we all took a hint from the headlines and started putting together our zombie-proof snow-plow-cum-school-bus rigs and practising our head shots. Better safe than sorry.
