If you're like us, you lie awake each night wondering, "Am I properly supplied in the event of a zombie apocalypse?" If your answer to that question is anything other than a resounding, "Yes!" then maybe you should consider getting the ZERO (Zombie Extermination, Research and Operations) kit. For a mere $23,999, Optics Planet will outfit you with an exhaustive array of supplies, including first-aid stuff, weapon accessories, and even lab equipment (so you can look for a cure to the zombie plague, of course), notes CNET.

One glaring omission is the guns themselves, but hey, they did include some special knives for when you run out of ammo. We're gonna go out on a limb and say they're not expecting to sell many of these—if you click "Check Availability," the site says, "Will ship before the zombie apocalypse!" But the comments section appears to be taking the list very seriously. "Um, you need to research more into zombies," one person writes. "Zombies DO NOT FEAR KNIVES." (More zombies stories.)
