Life Lessons From AMC’s The Walking Dead?

I recently came across an article “The Official Walking Dead College Course: What Survival Lessons Should It Teach?” about a University of California, Irvine teaching the survival principles of AMC’s The Walking Dead.
 AMC, Instructure and the University of California–Irvine have announced the joint production of “Society, Science, Survival: Lessons from AMC’s The Walking Dead,” an online course that promises to explore “a broad range of scholarly topics through the lens of a hypothetical zombie apocalypse.”
So I am wondering what does everyone think would be the most valuable lesson one can learn from such a course and does it have any true value as a life lesson? Someone would argue its novelty and a waste of time, while some would argue that it could provide for a meaningful philosophical discussion on life when things become purely about survival. I have signed up for the course myself to find out and if anyone else is interested, you can go to the course site for more information and to register for free (Society, Science, Survival: Lessons from AMC’s The Walking Dead). I look forward to your thoughts and discussion.
[ update : 11/13/2013 ] As a Marine we always said, hope for the best but prepare for the worst (I’ve heard the scout’s say it too, well it’s a good adage to live by whoever said it). Well here is hoping the zombie apocalypse never comes, but can’t say I wasn’t prepared for it – and I have the badges to show for it 😉
– did I also mention that I am armed to the teeth and know how to use it?
