So im reading these threads and I go off into a day dream. Then it hits me... are zombies go be slow moving (land of the deadish) or the fast movers (dawn of the deadish) ? I mean, the slow movers could be fun to toy with but I don't think im ready for those fast movers. Just something to think about.

I would think and vote for slow movers. But who knows, I guess we will just have to wait and see. :twisted:

They're going to be totally motionless, because zombies don't and cannot ever exist.

By the by, in the original Dawn of the Dead, the zombies are some of the slowest zombies ever on film. Believe it or not, those zombies are actual live people, actors, done up in makeup and acting to be a reanimated body. Hard to believe, right?

Oh no, did I just tell the kids that Santa doesn't exist???!!!

zombies will be slow, when moving in general, but they will move fast when near a victim. it's a way of conserving energy

Yeah I think the slow movers would be more fun and easier to deal with. Just sit up on a roof picking them off all day, like the gun shop owner in Dawn of the Dead (2004).

Fast!
Zombieism will be a disease causing mindless aggression and biting... not so much lurching corpses.

I've have been known to be a realist.

One the other hand, a virus situation, like in 28 Days Later, is totally plausible. And it pisses me off when people call 28 Days Later a zombie movie. It's not. A zombie is a dead person who is reanimated. In 28 Days Later, the people never died, they are simply infected with the "Rage" virus.

I'm more curious as to how zombies process all the flesh they eat. Do zombies poop? They are dead, so their digestive system doesn't work, so where does all that meat go?

On topic, however, I'd much rather slow zombies attacked.

According to Wikipedia:

According to the tenets of Vodou, a dead person can be revived by a bokor, or sorcerer. Zombies remain under the control of the bokor since they have no will of their own.
I see them every time I go into the office or downtown.

So, my plan is to expect fast movers and hope I'm wrong. With that in mind, I know many are preparing for SHTF and zombies from a weapons perspective. How many are prepared from a physical fitness standpoint? Are you all doing what it takes to be able to move and shake like the situation would call for? I mean if you had to run for your life for several miles to escape harm and tote family members and gear, would you be able to do so without having a heart attack? Would you have the stamina to save your families life? If the answer is no, it's something to think about.

Sorry if this is high jacking the thread.

I don't know. I think they will be much like the 28 Days Later "zombies".

I mean they already exist; they just might not realize it yet. The "Entitlement Virus" might lay dormant for longer than previously thought. Or, maybe it doesn't make the "zombies" as violent as previously thought.

Either way, the hive is in D.C. We need to make sure we prepare for the "zombie" uprising. ;) :D :shock: :(

In Japan they have created a bio-engineered mosquito that can deliver a "vaccine" against malaria. True fact -- google it up. Wait until some lib-tard socialist do-gooder decides unilaterally to "cure" rabies the same way and accidentally creates a mosquito borne zombie disease!

That's the worst of all possible scenarios! Fast zombies like in 28 days later and you can get it from a mosquito bite!

They should be slow but they never get tired and in mass they are still deadly!

Whoever said zombies can never exist can just shut up and get a life right now because they can and do!

This is gonna be one of the deciding factors of who survives.

I think next to fiscal preparedness physical fitness is the most overlooked aspect of prepping. I think on a scale of who thinks about/acts on prepping what it goes:

1. Guns and ammo (Every one....or at least every one that actually preps)
2. Food and Water (Most)
3. Fuel, spare parts, Hand crank radio....(Some)
4. Financial house in order (Few..it's not fun to think about let alone due when you are in debt)
5. Physical fitness (Almost none)

Look at Jack Spirko on thesurvivalpodcast.com, he's super prepared except for being fat. Diabetes isn't a good thing to have in the PAW!
