    Cover up! No other explanation. This is all Umbrella's doing. The zombie apocalypse has begun.

    Well, if the zombie movies have taught us anything, it's that we should start worrying when they start officially denying stuff...

    If you were to get trapped in a building where would you wanna be trapped by Zombie's? Here in the Tri-Cities, I think I would want to be trapped at Ranch and home. They have food, lots of containers to store water, roll down doors at the front, Lots of guns and ammo, tools, fresh clothes, generators and camping equipment. plus a really high roof so when you cook with propane indoors, there would be enough of a draft. No other windows and all cinder block.

    Exactly! This one gets it. The more they deny it, the more danger we're in!

    Bah. Any REAL zombie killing partner proposal includes agreements to shoot the other in the head if they get infected!

    There is a gun store down the street from here, then Camp Something Or Other out on 95, not far from here. It's a training facility, so they've got enough tanks, keeps, troop transports, guns and ammo to go around. At least enough to get us to Ft. Hood anyway.

    I don't think that even Cabela's would have enough ammo. Also, that big glass storefront would be a serious weak point.

    I would think that a small island would be ideal. Clearing a set area and having a big moat protect you would be ideal.

    What I'd really want to do is raid Troy Hurtubise's workshop.
    What sort of man would put a known criminal in charge of a major branch of government? Apart from, say, the average voter.

    I believe in freedom, Mr. Lipwig. Not many people do, although they will, of course, protest otherwise. And no practical definition of freedom would be complete without the freedom to take the consequences. Indeed, it is the freedom upon which all the others are based.

    Yes but what most people don't know is that Cabelas has A large metal grate that covers the front doors during the closed hours. and the gun vault is huge with only two openings. about 12 x 100 ft. and they have A lot more ammo than whats on the shelves they have several thousand rounds in reserve inventory.

    Small island is better then a store front, but you'd have to monitor hunting very rigorously to prevent wiping out the local game.

    Zombies don't need to breathe. What if they figure out they can just walk there on the sound floor?

    Perfectly reasonable. Whether or not zombies can walk long distances underwater is still a matter of conjecture, but personally I'd rather not take that risk, and trust a nice big wall

    Just try walking underwater. Despite "land of the Dead," getting to an island 1/2 a mile or more would require swimming or a boat. The level of thought or athletic ability would be well beyond a zombie. At best, a zombie might wash ashore with other flotsam occasionally.

    About ten years ago, when I was stationed at Singing River Island Naval Station, a friend of mine had decided that Fort Gains on Dauphin Island would be the perfect place to set up in a end of days situation. His thought was that it would provide two layers of protection and that food would be readily available.

    I just thought we'd beat this to death (ha!) in the other thread. Twice.

    My official answer is that it depends on what sort of zombie we're facing.

    This is a whole separate modifier.
    ~ The slow mulling 1980's "undead" zombies can be a pain in numbers... but the 2000+ (28 days later) Fast scrambling "Virus" zombies could be a serious problem one or two at a time. Unfortunately, i see the later virus/chem zombies as a way more probable scenario. Some cure for disease-x mutates and becomes contagious through contact.
    We laugh, but hell, look at what these "bath-salts" create, granted it is an ingested drug, technology and strange things are invented underground at every turn of histories pages.

    I remember reading an article not too long ago on the plausibility of a "zombie" virus. Reanimating the dead is still the realm of fiction, but a rage virus like in 28 days is well within the realm of reality if you ask me. Viruses already do some pretty weird things biologically, and there are fungi that take over the nervous systems of insects and basically turn them into zombies. Wouldn't take much, chemically speaking, to overdrive the brain's anger functions while shutting down everything else.

    The upside to that is, since they're actually alive, all those "rage zombies" would probably be dead in a month or two from starvation.

    Debatable, i think several factors would come in to play.
    - Do they eat only the un-infected, or would they turn on each other as well. Would they eat old rotted food/flesh? - Would they retain any pre-cognitive functions that allow them to use tools, search for and eat other forms of substance? i.e. would they search for and eat regular food in the act of self preservation? If their only drive is to kill, then yes they'd starve fast... If they are driven by primal instinct to eat "anything" and recognize anything as food (including you and me), then it would be a long slow process.

    - How much survival instinct would they retain in general? What would the level of intellect be after infection?

    A virus zombie that would eat anything, and retained a small portion of it's re-cognitive self would be a formidable oponent... especially in hordes.

    These factors could be the difference between a two month incident, or years long episode.
