Why are there so many zombies when every time they catch someone, they eat them?

They often show someone completely devoured by a huge pack of them. If that's what they are doing to the people they catch, how could there be thousands or millions of zombies?

Why don't the surviving humans just migrate to northen Canada? Wouldn't the Z's freeze up? They have no way to keep warm.

You turn into a zombie once you're bitten. That's why some walk with limps, because someone tried to eat their femur ;-)

(Not meant as an attack on your post, your post just reminded me.....) I'm sick of hearing about zombies and the "zombie apocalypse". When/why did this become a phenomenon?

True, but some movies show that there is nothing left to get up and walk.

Millenial angst, or something. One theory is that people who obsess about it actually, deep down, wish it would happen.

Why don't they obsess over some other fantasy.....like the Cubs winning a World Series or something? smile

It's also our own arrogance. We fantasize that we'll be able to say, I'm the only one in my town who survived, or who saved his own family. All those other people who turned in to zombies? Bunch of chumps, they were. Should have been more awesome, like me.

There's money to be made off of Zombies.

Zombie marketing.

In a world where everyone's turned into zombies, why would you want to be the one left alive anyway? That sounds depressing.

And Raitch, have you heard about the tropical fungus that infects ants and turns them into zombie slaves?? Someone could weaponize that and apply it to humans! Because you know, we've got a lot of evil geniuses out there that want to destroy the world.

People like disaster scenarios, for whatever reason.

The best way to combat zombies is to lure them to the ocean and have sharks with laser beams attached to their fins finish off the walking dead.

For me, I think the frightening thing about the zombie fantasy is, even in death there is no rest.

Because every dead person who ever lived and died has turned into a zombie. They're billions and billions of 'em.

See "I Am Legend". Almost the same thing.
