Lately, talk of zombies and a zombie apocalypse has been everywhere.  No longer merely content for ghost stories, video games, and sci-fi thrillers, this topic is drawing consideration by more “academic” circles.  For example, last week The History Channel aired a two-hour documentary called “Zombies: A Living History.”  On May 16th of this year, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a post in their Public Health Matters Blog entitled “Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse” in which the author detailed an emergency preparedness plan that every American should consider adopting in the face of a zombie threat.  It also discussed how the CDC would respond to such a cataclysmic event – particularly if caused by a virus like solanum.  Since the U.S. Government takes this threat seriously, we, as a thought leader of the intimate-apparel industry, feel a moral obligation to do the same.  So, what follows is what may be a first-of its-kind consideration of the types of underwear every woman should have on hand, should hordes of the undead rise and destroy civil society as we know it.

July 20th has been a pretty busy day in the field of space exploration over the past five decades.  In 1969, humans walked on the moon for the first time.  In 1976, the Viking 1 Lander touched down on the surface of Mars and marked the start of human exploration of the Red Planet.  And, in 1994, the world watched as at least four of comet Shoemaker-Levy 9’s twenty-three fragments crashed into Jupiter’s southern hemisphere, producing one of the most memorable cosmological events of the twentieth century.  Given the importance of this day as it relates to outer space, it seems the right time to devote some of this blog’s attention to the types of underwear a female astronaut wears on her inner space when performing work that’s simply out of this world.
