    It was pretty interesting, i dont believe in the dead coming back to life but i do believe that the government messes with some biological chemicals that could produce a "zombie like" epidemic. All you need to do is take away the rational and intelligent function of the human brain,just leaving the basic animalistic side... And u have a zombie

    It's long been considered in conversation within the walls of FTF that "Zombie" or "Space Zombie" would pertain not to the actual dead rising from a rotting grave, but more the unprepared civilian populace going start raving bananas when basic societal "needs" break down.

    Example:

    Katrina's Aftermath

    Roits - Anywhere

    Anywhere the power grid is displaced for more than a couple of days and people are cold, hungry and can not just "order out" for dinner.

    Many discussions have included first hand accounts of folks having "neighbors" they have never met come calling when the local Piggly Wiggly no longer has stocked shelves and the power has been off for days on end.

    "Zombie" is the really advanced version of every unprepared yuppie you know/see who can't feed themselves, start a fire from stock and don't have provisions stocked. :cool:

    Yes, but in this particular instance we are speaking specifically about coming up out of the grave, rotting eyeballs flapping on the cheek, teeth falling out, the broken leg shuffle, stepping on your own entrails and devouring the living type of zombie. :)

    And we speak of those too. FTF Preperation is pretty much the same either way when you get into the real core membership. ;)

    Basically "you've got it, they want it, but they're not going to get it." At that point, whether "it" is brains or Spam is irrelevant.

    That's all fine and dandy, but the OP was about the TV show that was on a couple days ago.

    I saw the program and found the history of the zombie legends in different cultures, as well as their links to modern burial practices, to be quite interesting. I certainly have to give the "zombie" group a big rotting two thumbs up for the way they are bringing attention to the need for emergency preps.:D But it does make one wonder, what are they really working on in those underground labs and bunkers?:eek:

    I'm not too sure about the dead rising out of their graves, except from a religious standpoint. But a virus or some other disease that would have a similar effect of a zombie outbreak is totally possible.
