Because that is mainstream. And this way, you can be Vincent Price, Charlton Heston, and Will Smith. At the same time.

You missed my reference, I meant you could be the last man on earth. Though I guess Will Smith doesn't count, depending on whether you count a child and a woman as "man".

A question rose in my mind: what if I was the only one actually wanting to join the undead horde? Would that make me an indie or a mainstreamist? Because, while I would be independent from the mainstream of thoughts of the living, I would belong to the mainstream of the undead (should there even be such a thing...)

If you don't count women as 'man' then I will be in my room, praying for every other man on earth to be struck dead simultaneously.

I think we would all be screwed if there was a zombie invasion...

...with vampires leading it!

That would be the ultimate undead senario.  Did they ever make a movie like that?  I know there was that scene in Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust where the vampire attacked the hunters with a bunch of ghouls/ zombie vampires.

In the event of a plain zombie outbreak I am near enough to rural areas to make it to a wilderness/protected forest area where there should be no other people around.  I am betting that the bigger outbreak would hit somewhere else first giving me a chance to grab a crapload of supplies.

And, despite my avatar, I would not be dumb enough to try to use a chainsaw on a zombie.

I dunno if any of you have heard about this or if there has been a thread about it, I just read about Humans vs. Zombies in the washington post magazine. This has got to be one of the most awesome things I have ever seen.

I found this at the bottom of a cave last week.



I was convinced that it was going to rise from dead and trample me to death in a horrible zombie cow death scene. I really fucking hate cows.

I remember hearing about that, read a topic from a college student whose campus was shut down when someone was walking around with a "realistic-looking" nerf gun, it took more than three hours for the people in charge to discern that it wasn't, in fact, a real gun, and even longer for them to announce an end to the lockdown. At least, we can assume they figured it out in three hours, because that was when they sent out messages saying that evening classes would be taking place, which I don't see them doing if they weren't sure yet.

Vampire-wise, I think our screwedness really depends on what kind of vampire it is. If it is one of the Bram Stoker kind, we would be really screwed, but if it is one of the more modern and weak ones, all you need is either silver bullets or old .303 surplus, even, if you can get the kind with wood tips rather than aluminum tips.

Ha. That Humans vs. Zombies thing started at Goucher College? That's one of the small private colleges near Towson, where I go to. Know a lot of kids from there.

After 16 hours of Castlevania I have to agree with this. My friend, you took the words right out of my mouth.

It's all well and good to have survival plans and material needs mapped out, but how exactly would you emotionally hold up? I mean, there's a certain point where, no matter how mentally tough and prepared you are, the human psyche just breaks down. It'd be pretty damn hard to live indefinitely in the wild while also fending off flesh-eating creatures who could very well bear the visage of your family and friends.

That is part of why the first order of business is to keep as far away from them as you can, if you can't see them well, you can't pick them out as someone you know.

I suppose it would be similar to shellshock, people would continue operating, but many of them just wouldn't be there, lights are on but nobody is home.

I'm certain that I'd lose a lot of family and good friends and even just "Hey let's get a beer and look at girls" buddies. It'd fuck me up something bad, but I have made cross-country or international moves once every 2-4 years or so since 3rd grade. I'm pretty used to never hearing from people ever again.

I used to be able to get attached to people really easily, but after a majority of my life has been spent the way it has, I really don't have that anymore. So while it sucks for me in the normal world, in the zombie apocalypse, I'd be set.

Shell shock would be a blessing compared to everyone you ever knew becoming a flesh eating monster. Sure, the Germans and the Japanese would bomb and kill us, but they were enemies, not once-friends who are trying to eat our flesh. As far as if I really had to think about it I'd go batshit insane if I had to tough it out alone, despite that being the best damn way to stay alive. After the Zombocalypse starts, connections to people only makes it harder to put them down when they become infected.

Wait, Patrick, so the fact that you don't have very close ties to people and have moved every few years means that you wouldn't eventually lose your mind after living in the fucking boonies while every vestige of humanity is slaughtered, devoured and annihilated around you? No matter how isolated of a spot you go to, sooner or later they'd catch up with you, and probably in large numbers. You'd really be able to remain calm and unemotive? Even if you didn't feel some kind of sadness, your brain's generally unavoidable reaction would be to drown every fiber of your being in adrenaline and scream at your body "HOLYSHITRUNYOU'REGOINGTODIETHEWORLDISENDEDANDYOURECOMPLETELYFUCKINGALONEANDTHERE'SNOWAYOUTEVER!!"

I bet Kim Jong Il would survive a zombocalypse. Or start it.
