Cthullu (pbhn) says: Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, though He advises that you shouldn't expect any more mercy than the insincere when He gets around to re-establishing dominance. Elder Evil and all, right?

And the winner for busting through the dreaded Snuffaluffagus wall is...... Couchfort.

Congratulations, Sir, you get a cookie!

Only time will tell if Zombies really can exist!

Cthullu (pbhn) says: Time has nothing to do with it. Zombies exist because He says they can and when He decides it's time for us to meet them we can kiss our tasty kiesters goodbye.

Elder Evils. Immortal entities that do not like to share the spotlight. This should not be a surprise, given their reputations.

I TOLD YOU SO! I'm just saying it right now forum monkeys, I told you so.

Also flies eat roadkill. Zombies are roadkill that can still chase after you some. I don't see how it could be any other way.

That's the thing I have a problem with. Zombies are mindless eating machines. For lack of a better term, that's part of their charm. Jenny's comic strikes me as something of a video game zombie apocalypse and less the more Wlking Dead kind.

By adding intelligence to zombies, you reduce them to more or less cannibal humans with a contagious skin condition. The herd instinct, to me, isn't so much hivemind development as much as one sees you and moves and others see it move and then move.

To me, the magic of a good zombie tale is that the zombies serve as an environmental stress that forces a rapid societal evolution into a new form as a result. Most all of the survivors think their way is the best and so miss the simple truth that the society that survives does so by changing with each and every new member until it's usually too late. The zombies are the only survivors that cannot change.

It's almost as if the human survivors too stubbornly kling to the pasts they can never have back. Instead they must evolve through natural selection until they luck into enough reason to break that cycle once again.

Ok, I've been thinking on this some since a trip I made to a Native American reservation and I think there is a way that this could work.

After learning about the Great Ghost Dance, zombies might be possible if the power of the Great Spirit was invoked to trap the spirits of the White Devils in their bodies after death to suffer decomposition as punishment for the past sins of the America's theft of the Land and their disrespect of it since.

Being forced to suffer decomposing would drive them insane and thus make them homicidaly violent. The whole biting thing could be a compulsion to consume endlessly as further punishment. Any humans they kill would then be trapped in their bodies in turn, restarting the cycle of punishment.

Who knows, this whole zombie thing could really be the work of a few really devoted and somewhat demented shamans looking for that big get even. Screw Orcus, zombies could be a spiritual Little Big Horn on the whole damn planet.

Somewhere in the Happy Hunting Grounds, the spirit of Crazy Horse smiles.

I had a cousin who had stress induced psychosis, she heard and saw things differently when she was under pressure and had wild ass mood swings. It was from a chemical imbalance in her brain after a car crash. In her recovery she always talked about little things, because there were no big steps in her life anymore. It was all about the little things that added up to mattering, as she would put it.

Even if the comic doesn't come back for a while, maybe random ass postings from strangers on the interwebs that are too stubborn to quit will make some small bit of difference, yknow?

What? It's as good a reason as any.

Still no further communication from our fearless leaderette, but do not let your hearts be troubled friends, imaginary or otherwise, for I am still here.

Though I will have to admit that I am starting to sometimes  get that Forrest Gump feeling of standing in the rain screaming Jennnaay!!.....

So...should we be boarding up the windows, if we live in his neighborhood?

Romero's early zombies swarm like old people fuck, slowly and rather painfully to watch. You would have all afternoon to carefully cut boards to fit as they shamble aimlessly about growling menacingly. They won't even start crossing the lawn until at least sundown and the dramatically clawing at the door won't start till around the time Fallon comes on.

That could very well be. It's summer here so the state sport has become 'Hide From The F@$kin Sun', so I don't normally get out till way after seasoned citizens go to bed.
42  General Discussion / Random Stuff / Re: Elected Zombies on: July 11, 2017, 10:07:34 pm
I live in Arizona, John McCain country. A zombie would be both an improvement and most likely better preserved.

Only if being delicious, nutritious and habit forming count as defences.

I was watching a NatGeo program on the insect world and was struck by a realization that we may be looking at a 3 to 4 week zombpocalypse at the longest.

The larva of the common house fly consume only decaying organic matter. As your average zombie is 100 percent decaying organic matter, they won't last long against them. In fairly short order there will be nothing left except piles of bones and city sized swarms of insects that know how good we taste.

Screw chainsaws, katanas and baseball bats, I am stocking up on flypaper, mosquito netting and Raid, it kills them dead.

To start with, I am in the zombpocalypse can't happen camp. This would sum up why: http://www.cracked.com/article_18683_7-scientific-reasons-zombie-outbreak-would-fail-quickly.html.

As far as the spirits part, I see it like this; all the stories you hear about spirits usually revolve around the reason or reasons the spirit has to hang out here. Without that emotional tie to our plane or a bioelectric field, I don't believe they have the power to manifest let alone have the substance to be studied.

Also, your Swedish friend has it wrong. That spike in the head thing was actually early attempts at neural/mechanical interfacing. They weren't trying to make better soldiers, they were attempting to make pilots who could operate vehicles on a more instinctive level. All they ended up making were brain damaged test subjects. The human brain has a very low tolerance to foreign objects inside the skull. Especially if they are harder than brain tissue and don't move with it.
