The Jester wrote:Well... If we conduct a threat analysis, we find that it could very easily be worse. The zombie didn't stop eating it's first victim to go after the police man who hailed him, and didn't even stop eating when attacked and shot. If subsequent zombies follow this same pattern, they pose a virtually insignificant threat.


Not necessarily. Consider that with the level of intelligence normally attributed to a zombie, a police officer with a firearm likely wouldn't be discernable as anything more than another meal. They'd probably be unable to link the firearm with the pain sensation from being shot, if they could discern the pain at all.

Therefore, from the zombie's perspective, it has two targets, both good prospective meals, one is closer than the other. If it detects pain at all, it probably associates it with the closest of the two targets, rather than the firearm-wielding one farther away.

Since the zombie doesn't have the intelligence to have a concept of death, it would most likely focus on eating over self-preservation, especially when confronted with a potential hazard that it can't recognise, like a firearm.

Now, if the zombie didn't already have a meal item, it probably would have attacked the officer. So we reduce everything to the age-old saying "I don't have to outrun the zombie, I just have to outrun the slowest survivor".

This message brought to you by a man whose teenage years were almost entirely subsumed by zombie movies.

A friend of mine suggested PCP as the cause, which seems likely considering the history of that drug, but still...

This reminds me of the Greyhound decapitation/cannibalism guy. I believe it wasn't a drug thing but a mental health thing.

Your not wrong, though I'm not sure if should blame the zombie chewin' on my noggin' or this core lit assignment.

Edit: It's not just me either. It's just coincidence that I'm leaving the country now...

If the zombie apocalypse actually starts, I'd probably not fight. I'd be too damn lazy and heavily pessimistic.

The victim of the vicious flesh-eating attacker on the MacArthur Causeway on Saturday has been identified as 65-year-old Ronald Poppo, The Miami Herald has learned.

Poppo remains in critical condition at Ryder Trauma Center with horrific facial injuries.

His attacker, killed by Miami police at the crime scene, has also been identified as Rudy Eugene, who as a teenager in the late 1990s played high school football at North Miami Beach High.


And then a picture of the man's face afterwards. Which is too gruesome to post here.

Its because they aren't bath salts at all. Just marketed under that name to keep the DEA off their case. It'd be like marketing marijuana as a textile.

No, I get that. It's just a weird name. It sounds like a nick-name that a guidance counselor made up to prove that he's "hip to the scene."

I keep hearing Graham's voice speaking the words "bath salts" as a censor in that article over anything potentially objectionable, like >BATH SALTS<, or >BATH SALTS<.

...I don't know if that's good or bad. :?
