I kinda liked the Warm Bodies movie about zombies. It was a cute concept.

Me too Sci. Disclaimer: I think it was based on a book, which I haven't read.

Yeah, Sci, and no animals were shown being harmed in that movie, either. (If I remember correctly).

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

So every grave opens, and they come climbing out? Maybe. But that explanation doesn't work with the flicks that base transmission on a bite or a virus (say, Shaun of the Dead, among many others). Nobody gets dug up and bitten in those movies.

OK
Maybe the two thoughts will be combined: zombies will one day become the Chicago Cubs and win a World Series.

They only come climbing out to the extent they are able to escape and have the ability to actually move. Zombies can die from starvation (I'm told), so most of the zombies that live in graves will never see the light of day.

The thing is, people *assume* a bite from a zombie transmits the disease, but that's not the way it works. See, the film "Fido," explains that the zombie disease came from the trail of a comet through with the earth passed. The comet trail infected the atmosphere of the planet. Everyone is a zombie now.

That would explain much that afflicts our nation in this generation.

This generation? What about the preceding generation that has delivered so much violence and misery upon the world. They were not only the "greatest" generation, they were also the worst.

Research how many people were killed or oppressed during the 20th Century.

Historically, there have been worse "zombie-fied" generations than the "greatest generation." Much worse. No generation has the market cornered on being virtuous zombies.

being one that does not have TV in the house it is scary to hear all my friends talking about all the dreck they fill their brains with turning them into unthinking consumers.

Yea, Wolfy!

We have a TV, for watching old films on DVD. It has no antenna, no subscription to broadcast service.

We love avoiding modern television as it is served up to viewers these days.

Zombies are the PC version of mobs "upset" by something so they have to loot and destroy to feel "justice" was done
