So, this conversation happened earlier and I laughed until I cried.

Me: LARP seems like a geek thing but I have a theory that it's really education
Because homeschoolers graduate and are like, man, what am I going to do with these military strategy and leather working skills mom let me work on for extra credit...

Hunter: hahahhaha when the zombie apocalypse comes.
we will all be happy we dedicated hours to sword play, armoring, and small unit tactics.
cause lets be realistic here.
guns will be nothing but stupid and bullets will be rare.
and to be honest it doesnt take too much to stop some rotten teeth from penetrating your clothing.
get some light leather armor combined with some small sheets of chainmail for weak points and you're set.
also the fact that i essentially know how to build a castle is super useful too.
