I'll just stay in Canada, thanks.

also, wtf, space flamethrower? fire requires carbon and oxygen to burn, and produces H20 and CO2 as products. yes, these are the rules of combustion no matter what. in space, unless you have carbon AND oxygen present, there will be no combustion. you may get heat from a pure oxygen torch (as in, a blowtorch), but no actual burning.

Second, flamethrowers vs zombies is not the most practical idea. You need to destroy the brain, and while destroying the body is indeed good, it won't kill it and you may have a wall of burning zombies shuffling to you. According to the Zombie Survival Guide, you'd be best off with a rifle.
At the same time, the problem with fighting zombies on the moon is that you're either outside fighting them on the barren moonscape, where a rip in your suit might kill you, or you're fighting them inside, where a stray bullet could vacate everything inside to the outside. Shotguns in a moonbase. Big no no.
Third, I'm in the midst of reading Max Brooks' "World War Z," and while freezing zombies may temporarily solve the problem, it doesn't solve the problem that is human attacks from others that know you have food. Perhaps if you Canadians used bladed hockey sticks...
