    Zombies... Fast or Slow

    Been thinking on this for a while now... On one hand you've got your classic "Night of the Living Dead" and "Walking Dead" types and on the other hand there's "28 Days Later" and soon to be released "World War Z". (not "if" but) WHEN the zombie apocalypse finally arrives are we going to be dealing with slow meandering types or rabid wild animal like with heightened speed and strength?

    I'm a huge fan of zombie movies!

    I would have to say that they would be slow. Doesn't make much sense that they would become faster and stronger after they're dead.

    I heard someone say "I'm SO over zombies and bacon."

    That's just crazy talk IMO.

    After the Zombie Apocalypse failed to occur, most people lost interest. In zombies... not bacon.

    Way to delete your post when I had a great Timothy Leary pun in the making.

    Unicorns are smarta$$es. Don't trust 'em. Zombies, OTOH, are at face(eating) value. You know where they stand/shuffle.

    hate to admit it - but I think they'll be fast, strong, mean ... some alien race intent on taking over the world will create a virus that will create zombies out of 99% of the race - these zombies will only have a half life of about 180 days... as long as they don't feed on anything living. Unfortunately the virus will be airborne and everyone will have it - some just wont turn, or like Walking Dead turn only after they die. It's gonna be a mess for about a year. After that it will be somewhat safe to come out of your doomsday bunker and carry on the race with the other 1% that's left. The only major change would be that now everyone will need to sleep alone because if your partner dies in their sleep you'll end up as the next meal.

    Isn't there room enough for both?

    Keeping in the spirit of the poll I am going with fast.

    If they are traditional "risen dead" zombies (not deities), they could be fast at first (but no faster than they were when alive) then they should slow down as their muscle and nerve tissue rots.

    +1. I've never understood (apart from exiting movie making) why zombies would have enhanced strength, unless lack of nerves gives full potential, but this would rapidly diminish as entropy takes over. Sorry, I know it's boring but I like to think of the 'why' of things. Of course given how much aliens are already responsible for they would find a way around this.

    I think the "pain" synapses in the brain would be non-responsive. There for they would have no perception of pain, or limits. We've all heard of the "miracles" of some granny lifting a car to save a pinned child. Or the LSD freak who took 32 bullets and 5 story fall before he finally stopped. These zombies would have that "switch" turned on at all times only they'd also be hungry for "Brains... BRAAAAIIINSS!!!!!"

    Fast or slow, I'm gonna barricade myself in my room and play guitar til they get in and kill me.

    Wonder if I can still play if I'm a zombie?
