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

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.
