Someone once worked out that there are roughly 5000 zombies to 1 living person, which is a hell of a ratio to try combat... plus it's really a TV show so has poetic licence....

In the walking dead comics they come across Cannibals and people that murder others for fun multiple times. Disease is easier to come in contact with and harder to treat. Like somebody has also said, There are people that are mentally unstable, Elderly people, Physically handicapped people, Children, toddlers, babies. Whats stopping zombies from crossing borders? Definitely not the deceased border patrol. In 28 Days/Weeks later the zombies are incredibly fast and it takes only seconds for them to turn. Wildfire. One room full of 100 people would all be turned within 5 minutes.

I wouldn't call the infected in 28 days/weeks later zombies since they aren't exactly dead.

That stat doesn't take into account the feeble and the noncombatants though.
User avatar #9 to #1 - coustify (11/15/2013) [-]
Probably because they would be the zombies.
#52 to #1 - greenbracelet (11/15/2013) [-]
or the fact that maybe more than 99% are zombies, or smaller group sizes. or people getting picked off.

with this wide of an out break, and this logic, I'd give it 4 years.
#96 to #1 - gerfox (11/15/2013) [-]
Neither takes it into account further casualties.
#127 to #1 - Sampsy (11/15/2013) [-]
It also doesn't take into account that zombies would fall to pieces and die in a few days and that they would not require damage to the brain to be killed, because that is stupid.

User avatar #12 to #1 - dreamcast (11/15/2013) [-]
It also doesn't subtract any human fatalities during the year. With the amount of zombies half of the living population could be wiped out in a week. He also didn't consider that some of these people may even be trapped like those old people in season 1.
User avatar #30 to #1 - twofreegerbils (11/15/2013) [-]
The feeble and the noncombatants are probably already zombies. The only people who would survive are the ones capable of defending themselves or the ones lucky enough to have someone badass enough to defend them.

A year late to the party but the achievment says 53595

That's from Left 4 Dead, it's a reference to the achievement in Dead Rising.

Well I killed 53,594 AND covered wars, ya know. I've also Ridden in a helicopter, killed a Hispanic man, along with several other psychopaths, and I've even fought a bald military badass on top of a tank while surrounded by a cock ton of zombies. In other words, I'm so fresh you can suck my nuts.

yea but some people may kill more some may kill less its an average
also if you add in starving since zombies would still need some form of energy to prevent their felsh from decomposing and them effectively dieing
even if its a long time a few zombies would be unable to find people to eat due to you know scarcety

Collapsing structures, gas leaks, weather effects (eg. struck by lightning, tornadoes), etc.?   
I was referring to accidental human deaths, but accidental zombie deaths would be equally plausible and as such still have an effect on numbers.

Walking Dead shows them falling/walking right into traps. They have no regard for personal continuance -only their next meal. Seen with the wooden barriers on the town, prison, as well as them falling into the ditch and continuing to reach upwards even after being set on fire.
#97 to #93 - crazymannequin (11/15/2013) [-]
Shouldnt environmental factors also be considered such as heat making zombies rot, bugs eating zombies, etc.
User avatar #103 to #97 - noideawhatimdoing (11/15/2013) [-]
Depends on your take on zombies, some say yay they rot, others say nay.

The walking dead shows decay... but not death by environment for the walkers.

Same with the bugs and such -zombies arent shown with clusters of flies, maggots, or other decomposers on them for the same reason(s). Either not "dead" to them, OR avoiding the walkers on instinct due to the infection.
#104 to #103 - crazymannequin (11/15/2013) [-]
true enough but I dont think bugs care about diseases
User avatar #119 to #104 - stifflimb (11/15/2013) [-]
Most creatures does care about infected meat, although even infected meat does decompose by bacteria and such. In the walking dead it's hard to tell, it could be they don't classify as "dead" since they are moving and got a minimum brain activity and therefor don't decompose, but also in the last episode I saw, there were two dogs eating of a zombie that could not move so most likely whats making people go zombie don't affect animals in the same way at least.

Thats kinda just arbitrarily throwing in a bunch of numbers that have no actual basis in anything.
User avatar #25 to #24 - corso (11/15/2013) [-]
I dunno, 10 zombies per month isn't asking much.
User avatar #26 to #25 - Endofzeeworld (11/15/2013) [-]
For each person though? Not accounting for the elderly or infirm, children, or people who just don't have the stomach for it?
User avatar #27 to #26 - corso (11/15/2013) [-]
It's an average. Some will be trigger-happy and kill a lot more, others won't kill any.
User avatar #28 to #27 - Endofzeeworld (11/15/2013) [-]
I have considered this, but I still believe that the average would be below 10. My best guess would be 5, but again, this is arbitrary and not based on any facts.
User avatar #29 to #28 - corso (11/15/2013) [-]
Well, think of it like this. The people that don't want to or can't kill zombies, are the first ones that are gonna turn into zombies.
User avatar #74 to #28 - hellomynameisbill ONLINE (11/15/2013) [-]
There are 30 days to kill zombies in a month, and thousands of zombies in your way; you're definitely going to kill more than 10. At first, I feel like there would be a lot more zombie bloodshed due to asylum being less prominent and therefore forcing people to fight their way through to it.
User avatar #32 to #28 - drewbridge (11/15/2013) [-]
Dude, 1 guy with a gun a decent aim can kill hundreds in a very short time. I'd say they'd make up a huge chunk of that %.
User avatar #33 to #32 - Endofzeeworld (11/15/2013) [-]
From a perch, perhaps, but, assuming they only die from headshots, that's not as easy as you'd think. You also have to consider ammo, and time, and the fact that most wouldn't want to fire off a gun unless they have to, for risk of calling more undead.
User avatar #37 to #33 - drewbridge (11/15/2013) [-]
I know, I know all about that, I've read the ZSG in it's entirety 3 times, skimmed through it, hours and hour debilitating ideas with friends and myself, I even have a plan, bugout bag, nearly a dozen firearms and physical fitness preparedness. (I have a ******** of free time on my hands)

Everything is relative, but headshots aren't hard to get from around/under 25 yards, and it can be done extremely efficiently. The idea of just exterminating as many as possible isn't that bad within reason.

I doubt the circumstances in the post are that reasonable, doesn't account for accidents/disease/survivors killed/bitten and a ******** more. But if there was 300,000,000+ zombies, you bet your ass every single person would be helping kill them. Probably not within a year, though.
#78 to #37 - daynox (11/15/2013) [-]
How many people have fired a gun? Or have any degree of competence. Accuracy is an aquired skill. Theres a reason there's such high training protocols in the military etc. Its ******* hard, and even so the standard infantryman can't pull a headshot off in a dire situation with any degree of certainty. Aside from the fact that almost all gun related deaths are not shot in the head and usually result from misses to intended point. Bringing in the idea of headshots under 25/yards like you said, thats ******* close and relies on encountering a small number at a time.

Splitting into groups of 20 is a horrible detriment. Endofzeeworld is right, 10 per person a month is stupid as hell. What would happen is the people that want to kill would form groups, the rest would stay and build shelter/rebuild. The idea of 10 per person continuously is based solely around the the assumption of encountering infected periodically and in small numbers. Assuming a 99% infection rate as stated that means entire city populations would be infected meaning if a group of 20 rocked up they'd be facing thousands upon thousands at a time.

Killing human beings is simply not in people capabilities also, people go insane after seeing one person die, try 99% of the population beginning to eat other people. So many wouldn't be able to cope and others simply don't have it in them to fight. Others will go into survival mode, kill other humans, horde, steal etc. Also the simple fear, like **** . The scenarios just retarded.

Im sorry but I dont believe reading a fictional book, based on a stupidly unrealistic scenario prepares people for anything. Don't get me wrong I like the fiction and I love Max Brooks stories, but they're stories
User avatar #147 to #78 - drewbridge (11/16/2013) [-]
That makes sense.
However, even for me, comment #29 makes alot of sense aswell. The 1% of survivors aren't randomly chosen, they get it by luck/skill/living in Eastern Alaska.

If you are not a good shot/good killer, you will goddamn die. If you cannot run, you will die. Literally survival of the fittest.
Just out of reason, I'd say a majority of the survivors would be adult men in their 20s-30s, likely almost entirely active duty and former military/law enforcement. Everything is WAY too relative to just say it would be over in a certain amount of time, and you're right, they will be in massive groups (hundreds).

well heres a thought(if someone could get me that picture id greatly appreciate it) you have people like you and me and joe blow thatll have to fight to survive zombies but then you have people that are actually preparing for a zombie apocalypse like Burt Gummer from tremors that are just going to go ******* nuts and rape thousands upon thousands of zombies the military is gunna take out a huge chunk of zombies also adding a substantial amount of that number back in) but what im trying to say is IT WAS A ******* JOKE
#137 - anon (11/15/2013) [-]
this is why mathmaticians are retarded. youre not taking into account variables, like who got infected and if humans are not killing themselves more than zombies.. also there is a highly likely chance most people wont be able to kill 10 zombies a month, let alone all the imbeciles who will die due to the fact their smartphones wont work anymore
#138 to #137 - awesomedug (11/15/2013) [-]
this may be true but he wasn't going to exact numbers he was rounding but this is true, the groups would consist of kids adults possibly pregnant women and overweight people whose to say that each group would be able to kill enough zombies to keep up with the variable he displayed and would there be enough ammo to kill each zombie would the zombies need more than one bullet to kill if so how many exactly ... ammo isn't infinite

except that in the series it's been about a year since the apocalypse started and they're's less than 0.1% of humanity left (so it's less than 300,000 people to 299,700,000 walkers in the US plus raiders)

Step 1. Go to France
Step 2. Invade the zombies
Step 3. Point guns at French zombies, they surrender
Step 4. Have a relaxing time

If you want to kill the zombies, you can kill them. They all ready surrendered.

I don't even get how the infected population can be that great with zombies that move at the pace of snails. Like, they should rot to pieces before they even get to bite someone. Just look at this pathetic bicycle girl, not a threat to anyone.
User avatar #77 to #73 - hellomynameisbill ONLINE (11/15/2013) [-]
the bicycle girl got into that state by getting 60 percent of her body mass eaten by walkers and furthermore decaying until Rick awoke from the coma which was a while later
#79 to #77 - asdflower (11/15/2013) [-]
Then imagine how much decay all the other zombies must have suffered in this two year period. That they're even able to walk is pretty weird.

But hey, it's fiction, and it's a great series.
User avatar #81 to #79 - hellomynameisbill ONLINE (11/15/2013) [-]
rick was only in the coma for a couple of weeks
User avatar #82 to #81 - hellomynameisbill ONLINE (11/15/2013) [-]
and being able to move around slows down the decomposition to a certain extent.

according to the zombie survival guide, it would take five years for every single zombie to die off, so the gang aren't far off from all of the zombies dying, but they're residing in highly populated areas which is the main problem.
User avatar #111 to #82 - noideawhatimdoing (11/15/2013) [-]
Not far off from the FIRST wave of them dying...
theres this flu hitting them, and likely other survivors (im an episode behind)
and people are dying and turning all the time...
so really -everyone needs to get the **** to work

it also bugs me how theyre like "THE WALKERS oh no the fence is about to collapse due to the buildup of walkers"! *panic* everyday, everyone on deck 2 hours of zombie killin and disposal.. common
User avatar #80 to #77 - hellomynameisbill ONLINE (11/15/2013) [-]
there are a variety of zombie types:
Crawlers: they crawl like the bicycle girl either due to leg injuries/decay
Stragglers: these zombies walk extremely slowly and tend to stumble around
Walkers: these are your average walking zombie
Runners: these are sometimes made when walkers are aggravated, but they are mainly caused by new zombies or people who were previously fit in their lives
User avatar #98 to #73 - deadadventurer (11/15/2013) [-]
In the webisodes you can actually see how she ends up like that.
User avatar #109 to #73 - noideawhatimdoing (11/15/2013) [-]
the element of surprise initially?
Also, everyone turns once they die -of zombie bite or not... so theres that.
