Story Bits for 6/28/2008 – Water as Protection

June 28, 2008

Plot Point: a malicious high-frequency signal that turns people into zombies/vegetables/drones, but is stopped by water.  Water would absorb enough of the signal to nullify it.  Most of the population falls prey to this signal, but a small handful of people escape its effects.  That handful eventually realize what they were all doing at the time the signal was first sent out – bathing, swimming, etc. – all things that involve being surrounded by water.  To defend themselves from future transmissions, they construct houses which have an outer wall filled with water.


And yes, this idea did, in fact, come to me in the shower this morning.
