    77 days.

    Of course, I don't buy it at all...... never have.

    If you don't have blood circulating oxygen to all body parts they don't work. Period.

    If you don't have electrical signals coming from the brain to control all the organs and/or muscles etc. they don't work. Period.

    So Zombies have always been fictional to me. If someone did "go mad"and need to feed on brains, they would be no harder to kill than any other creature. Period. Take out the heart or take out the brain. Game over.

    Plus, I never understood why mobs of Zombies are assumed to be chasing only uninfected people. Why don't they eat each other? They were dead for a while. They have severe brain damage. They don't know the difference between "good" brains to eat and "bad" brains to eat.

    It makes no sense on any level. It never has. But I know people who actually have a plan in place. Seriously, they have an escape/hide/survive plan.

    It's fun to think about though I guess.

    I was once sitting around drinking mead with a few friends when this topic came up, as it is wont to do in geeky circles. When the question got to me, I laughed. "I'll be working in the ED that night, and I'll be treating the first people, before we know what it is. I'm toast that night!"

    There was silence, and then my friend Ivan said, "Man, that's the worst Zombie Survival Plan I've ever heard!"

    I'd be interested in reading your theories about the time travel paradoxes in the Terminator franchise and how it's unrealistic that everyone easily adjusts to the atmosphere and gravity in Star Wars, regardless of what planet they're on.

    Ha, same here. I suspect I'd do a lot better if there wasn't so much running involved... :atoz:

    114 days. I hate running but am very good at it. If only there where questions related to hoarding of water/weapons/ammunition...

    Pretty sure my band has at least three dance songs and a ballad dedicated to this topic.

    With the recent resurgence of the interest in zombie-related fiction, if prog and AOR rock were the commodity now that it was in the 70s, you'd bet that every band would be scrambling to do a concept album about a zombie apocalypse.

    I guess it's still a more compelling storyline than Kilroy Was Here. *lol*

    78 days? ****, why bother? Might as well join the party.

    You can eat brains if you want to
    You can leave your friends behind
    Cause your friends don't eat brains
    And if they don't eat brains then they're
    No friends of mine
    Do the zombie dance!

    83 days. I don't run. Not that I'm a bad@ss but major back injury due to yrs in the oilfield put an end to my running/jogging days. Pretty good with a 36" pipe wrench though.

    See, that's the thing. I believe most people would run out. not many people have great aim and you have to nail them in the head. by the time most people are within the range to do that, you're probably better off with a decent hand to hand tool that has some reach.
