  • Not to be rude and I know these theory's are opinion based and for fun, but this one is flawed. Your food logic is sounds very accurate and there's nothing flawed in that but, you didn't accountant for hygiene. Showering, washing, and keeping bacteria away from you is important to your survival. So, if this Evan is gonna survive for around 63 years, he'll need to find a way to keep diseases away.

  • It's 2052. The end times are upon us. I've had to watch as all my loved ones are slaughtered around me. I'm running through the smoke and rubble looking for anywhere to hide from my imminent demise. A large shape begins to appear through the haze. Getting closer, I'm hit with a wave of relief as I see the local grocery store is still standing. Miraculously the store seems untouched and I seal the doors behind me. Wasting no time I frantically start smoking and curing meats, dehydrating vegetables, and preparing compost for my mushroom farm. No time to grieve the lost when there's meats to smoke. Society may be gone but I still have mushrooms to take care of

  • Plot twist: Theorista was a mad scientist staging the invasion, and was the one to tell Evan to stay inside Stater Bros. as a rendezvous trying to find out the maximum length of time you can live inside a grocery store. Extra Plot Twist: Theorista was Matpat this whole time. Matpat in our current timeline was so unable, and tired trying to find out the exact maximum time before you would starve to death, so he resorted to creating a time machine called the "Epic" from his past research on a 10 year old video on time travel from the game "Chrono Trigger" To conclude his research in an alternate timeline, where then he can bring his studies back to our timeline to then make this video here. On this channel. Yes. Because Evan left a comment on Matpats channel, he has created a catastrophe in a whole other universe.

  • I actually have daydreams about a scenario like this but with all the utilities still working and some way to get garbage out of the store so it doesn't end up filled with rotting food. Ideally this would take place at a Walmart so you would have just about any non food item you could possibly want but the regular grocery store would work too.

  • To all the people who didn't watch or understand the video or are just going by the title and say why didn't he break out or go out the open window it's because he isn't locked in and trapped in the scenario the video gave. He locked himself in on purpose to hide from the alien zombies. Why the zombies aren't noticing any smoke or smells or noise from that open window or going in it after him I don't know.

  • I love this theory!!! I've said for years that if a Zombie Apocalypse happened I would make the grocery store my home! I even know how to can and preserve foods just for that reason! I have no complaints with this theory although I would sprinkle in a few extra details. Does the store have any backup generators and how long they would last? Could the sprinkler systems produce any type of drinkable water? (probably not but filtration would be nice) Does the store have a take-out section where you could buy cooked food? (Besides more food to store and actual cooking supplies, some industrial freezers that might deter pests.) And lastly, what about pests? What measures could be taken to deter rodents and creepy crawlies, or is it better to attract animals to hunt for food instead? Yeah I thought waaaaay too into this!

I mean it wouldn't really matter to the final results, but it would make the farming a bit easier as you wouldn't have to move any shelves, just pallets with the handy pallet jacks.
