Alert!!! Instructables HQ attacked by Zombies! Mass Casualties Reported! Answered

A horde of zombies just broke into our office and attacked!

Many, if not all, members of Instructables are seriously injured. Bilal and the Robot have been taken captive, and are presumed to be infected with the zombie virus. We are too afraid to attempt a rescue at this time.

We bravely fought them off using marshmallow guns and pirate swords, but the tide only turned in our favor when one of the zombies hooked up some speakers and played "Thriller," at which point the rest of the zombies joined in the dance.

We recognized many of the members of Three Rings and think they may have been experimenting with something more sinister than Puzzling Pirates. Perhaps our recent swashbuckling raid on their fortress led them right back to our HQ?

It appears the zombie apocalypse has started. Prepare as best you can.

Update: Maybe we should have warned the zombies they really didn't want Bilal?

Update 2: We got Bilal back! Unforuntely, he returned in zombie-form, so I had to cut his head off.

Update 3: The zombies sent pictures of the robot in captivity! More pictures of the zombie lair and robot here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/grow_power/sets/72157606960332823/

Update 4: Live action video from the event was found and uploaded to youtube... what a horrific day:

Update 5: The zombies have sent their reply video. Dancing, carousels, and brains. This video exposes it all. Here it is: Three Rings Zombie Attack on Instructables

LOL... did they do this without you knowing, or were you a zombie, too?

I do not see you in the pictures...

We didn't know they were coming. It was a complete surprise.

Yeah, I would be surprised too, if twenty-some zombies burst into the room all of the sudden! LOL, nice vid!

Hmm, keep them away from the main computer.....no sense having THAT become a zombie emailer :-)

yep...*sets up main pc to be mine thus protecting the system*

Has the robot been retrieved yet ???

Do you guys do any work?


I challenge you to try and get work done when 20 zombies pile into your office! It's a good thing they didn't reach the servers...

the zombies will pay...

pay.. with uh... pain of marshmellows! filled with LEAD and uh... URANIUM!!

Would we really want radioactive robot-stealing zombies running around?

but who cares. Let's do it anyways!

No, not if we kill them when we shoot them. If they don't die, who cares?! it'll be a challenge to live :P

and fun...

bte, i think that would be cool if i could be there :D i have a powerful airgun, which might shoot marshmellows...

I am deeply sorry for your loss :P

Ungh... oh... ah... Feeling... terrible... turning... into...

ah... Run... before... they get you... like they did... *gasp*... to me...

Ideas for next attack: - Ninjas - Dinosaurs - Aliens I hate to say it, Instructables, but they kinda owned you with the zombie thing. They even brought food. Their attack was very well organized and downright frightening. You gotta STEP IT UP.

i have found THE De-Zombiefier> mix hydrogen and oxygen to get H2O.one shot on the zombie will get them back to the human form

"playing rock band!! Robot says: This beats the instructable office hands down." You guys haven't been torturing it, have you? It seems like it would be able to play rock band...

Whatever you do, don't re-open the Hive!

it would have been cool if they had followed the game for the story of the first on and apocolypse

Shite! if the zombies danced, the robots just sat there making sad faces?

Blast! See this is why you need me as an intern, I could have eliminated the zombie threat in a very shirt time...

But no worries! I'm on my way

*grabs flamethrower, collection of large dangerous knives, sword, and bow. legs it to highway and sticks thumb out. is promptly arrested*

Erm uhh... maybe later chaps...

Hehe, I thought you were trying to put a subliminal message for a prize or something in there.

My advice? Regroup and attack... as NINJAS!!!!

They already did. But nobody saw them. DAMN those leet ninja skills!

I thought you were going to find an atomic pimple to pop, well at least threaten to...

They all look slightly embarrassed to be zombies.
