The one thing I've always wondered in... zombie mythology, I guess you could call it, is... when they start munching on someone's flesh indeterminantly, at what point do they stop eating and start cooperating with eachother to eat...someone else's flesh indeterminantly?

Because clearly they can identify eachother, by smell or something, and is probably why you don't see them eating on themselves.

Erm, I guess what I'm trying to say is, at what point will they stop eating that horse's (horses'?) intestines, presumably reanimating it in some shape or form? Or will this remain the unwritten rule of zombie mythology everywhere?

But you also see corpses that were fully devoured by the zombies. I think only people who get away with a bite or scratch and get turned become zombies themselves, which makes me wonder why it spreads as effectively as it does. People just keep getting away and then infecting their comrades I guess.

I guess in most lores, you die by zombie, you become zombie. well that is unless you die being pushed down the stairs by zombie.

then again, this is an argument on lores, which is like saying "which vampire lore is sexier?" which I will always answer "naked Kate beckingsale".

I hear that in red dead redemption undead nightmares, you get zombie horse. so... there's that...

I don't know for sure, but I heard that in the comic anyone who dies becomes a zombie. Which makes a little more believable that they got this far. Zombiesm spread only by biting would work out much like in Shaun of the Dead; some panic and then the military absolutely obliterates them.


Seriously, almost all zombie films are ridiculously unlikely. We got the military, people who are trained to shoot at live humans who try their hardest not to be killed, the fuck are zombies gonna do?

Speaking of "intro", I heard about this fan made intro for Walking Dead and how it is 5000000000000000000...0 times better then the actual TV intro, finally remembered about it, and took a look.

They need to replace their intro with this fan made one.

Shocked

Seriously, though, that's excellent. Um. I would say someone forward it to Darabont, but it's a month old.

Walking dead just keeps getting better.

I'm pretty impressed by the acting as a whole.

Ok, I finally watched the first two episodes.


I'm amazed by how much I like this show. It's great.

I was not expecting an attack on the camp to happen so quickly within the series, much less the season. I thought that there would be a little more getting to know them before something like that would happen.

No. I currently don't have the money to buy them, either. Coming up on a year of unemployment on the 26th.
