OK, that's a new spin.  Do zombies have an anti-insect defense?

As my good friend Mola Ram would say,

It's mid-2017, and it's a really nice morning in Easton, PA.  Smack in the middle of the Lehigh Valley, there's green everywhere, blue sky, fluffy clouds, and the full moon is just visible in the western sky.

But you just woke up.

You're bright, have a nice job, read widely, surf the recent science regularly, but you're not a supergenius.  You're OK with that, generally, because generally things are going OK.  But you've been dreaming.  Just now, somehow, your brain combined with last nights science feeds, politics feeds, and 4 glasses of rather nice scotch have forced a epiphany that is clear as crystal, and you've been paralyzed for that last hour gazing out that window into the nice reality that you were expecting...trying to break the logical precision of that scenario that just fell into place between your ears.

It's still there, smugly looking at you, no doubt laughing at your horror.

The apocalypse?  No, that's not right.  Apocalypse refers to an unveiling, a discovery of a truth. Or the Truth.  What's coming should be described as a Collapse.  So, what then?  You've had an Apocalypse of the Collapse?  O, how poetic.

No, that's stupid.  Can't be.  I'm overthinking something.  I've forgotten some bit that makes this...scenario...a moot point.  For this sort of thing to happen...what?  A totally incompetent government of the US?  Isolation from its technically competent allies?  Advanced biological science to the point of precision DNA, RNA, and epigenetic manipulation?  Well, duh.  CAS9?  CRISPR? Calculated destruction of trust, combined with engineered manipulation of various violent prejudices...well, that pretty much kills off most of Civilization's natural immunities to Collapse, right there.  Then you need a slow, creeping super-bug with a delayed-blast endgame and an airborne delivery system.

Sure, but those exist.  I'm sure 2 or 3 nations have stuff like that.  Noone will use them because it would be MAD, right?  Mutually Assured Destruction.  Nobody likes that failure mode, so nobody goes there.

Until, eventually, someone does like that failure mode. 

But even so, nobody that stupid would ever be allow near that much deadly opportunity.  It's be like putting a toddler in a nuclear launch control bunker with a literal big red button 3 feet above the floor in the middle of a wall.  And telling him, "No."
No, scratch that.  Bad analogy.  These are still adults we're talking about, with experience.  Even stupid adults have limits.

You'd need a desperate, stupid adult to make a mistake that big.  Desperation enough to erase whatever integrity they might have once had combined with someone...credible..offering a one-final-way-out-that-just-might-work.  So said-sad-desperado has to have few-to-no mental defenses against blatant psychological manipulation and few-to-no friends to call for an alternative answer.

It's just a matter of time before the situational heat hits the temperature of fuse-ignition then?
Nyah.  Too pat.  An idiot like that would probably try some sort of limited-nuclear release option, figuring any return strike would take out mostly his enemies on the heavily-populated coastal cities.  Any military patriot worth the name would keep the football way, way out of his hands or refuse to follow the order.  Besides, even his limited political calculus would force him to realize he'd probably die in the exchange or be ripped apart by one of the many angry groups in the aftermath.  Or that one of his well-equipped "buddies" would send a well-funded hit squad for him.

So, he'd look into something more sinister, less kaboomy.  Something to make those pesky plebians more controllable.  Maybe that compound QI that got mentioned in that...intelligence briefing.  A biological that produces a targeted drug that degrades a neural center in the prefrontal cortex that would cause impairment in adaptability, specifically in being able to change one's belief in the face of new data.  Subtle.  Just enough to keep control of the masses using religion, bigotry, and political group-hate.

Hmm.  So much for the plebians, if he can fool enough of them all of the time.  Infecting the other powers, like Congress and the Courts, would give him a lock on power for the rest of this life.  He'd have all the marbles.  And they had the gall to call HIM stupid.

He'll show 'em.  "Bob.  Do it.  Do the QI plan."

This dream sucks.  Besides, even it is happening, what the hell can I do?  Move to Canada?  Is that even enough?
Maybe Britain?

Crap.  Man, it's nice outside.

This forum has become our collective offspring.

Defend the Offspring!
37  General Discussion / Zombie Stuff / Re: SCIENCE: What's keeping the Zombie crowd moving? on: May 06, 2017, 08:00:03 am
I'm think that there's an Intelligent Design aspect to the zombies.  Not the omnipotent design associated with religion, but some group or being that is actually running a strategy to achieve an objective here.  Or there was at some point.  It's not clear that the original designers still have control, or even ever had control.   It's also unclear what their objectives were, or what their original strategy was.  It does seem likely that this was not the original intent; however, the original evolution of the basic zombie into subtypes does suggest an initial level of control and an intent to make the zombies more effective. 

A timeline of the evolution would probably give us an insight into where/when evolution occured and possibly allow us to pinpoint the original source.

Reading this last post (below)...current shows 32 views.
Maybe the death of this forum has been exaggerated.

Maybe it is quite...animated.

Hi Folks!
Brain worm for the day:
What is keeping these dead bodies moving? 
1) Residual electrical impulses?
2) A new form of gut-based symbiotic bacteria that both a) digests stuff, and b) provides intelligence?
3) Aliens (wiggles fingers) using psionics (telepathy/telekinesis/clairvoyance)
4) Something weirder?
5) Magic.  A wish spell gone mad.  Superscience & Sorcery.
6) It's actual biblical Armageddon, and all bets are off.  Demons walk.  Who knows.

OK, I admit 2 things:
1)  These images are pretty awesome.
2)  I wanted to post in a thread started by someone claiming to be Dr. McNinja.

Also: A shout-out to Shadowgirls (that last image sort of pushed me that way.)

Well, now.
The News today was:  Haha.  Tits!

This topic seemed an appropriate spot for this news.
Indeed, tits may be an appropriate universal symbol for fun.
Not sure how this relates to surviving a post-apolocalyptic zombie-infested world largely populated by humans who plot against each other, but I'm sure that in that context, tits would probably improve things.

I really don't think it's just me, and I really want to know what happens next.

I have my theories, but...until the story happens, they're just theories.
But building a reality is hard, too.

That's why it's so awesome.

It may not be Spring....technically.  But the sun is shining longer!  And it's warmer...mostly!
That means that the frozen zomboids of the Apocalypse may be recharging from their winter slumber! Shocked

B R A I N S....

Only one woman can save us from the dead-among-us......
the mistress of the Zombie Hunters herself...

I noticed that some of the castle designs include and depend on moats or other water barriers.
Those only work if zombies can't walk, unbreathing, right under the water (and protected from attack by said water) up to a random spot on your beach or even start burrowing under the submerged walls.


If your castle is sitting on solid rock, with sheer cliffs all the way from the seabed to the ramparts, I'd think you'd be good.  Any equivalent structure of reinforced concrete should also work well.  Modern Skyscrapers could work well; particularly with skybridges that can be isolated.

Heck, the freaking Pentagon would be an awesome hardpoint.

Random insight?  Maybe?

Eh.  Pick a clever-yet-pithy comment and expand on it for a level or two.

Happy weekend.
