In all honesty, I'd probably give it a week or so to see if we could actually have some kind of possibility of containing and curing it. But if too much time has gone by and society is starting to crumble I'd probably just put a bullet in my head. I'd rather go quick than being ripped apart by zombies or fighting other humans for survival.

**** logic. No offense.

Dead is dead, whether it be by a bullet or being torn apart by a zombie. I would try to prolong my life as long as possible, if for no other reason than see how long I can do it (gamer mentality). Besides, the pain of being torn up by zombies would be worth the extra time.

I've always wanted to go to an Eskimo Community if a zombie apocalypse ever happens. It'd probably be too cold for most zombies, and them Eskimos probably know how to survive in the cold for pretty much forever.
#46 to #20 - dontread (10/25/2013) [-]
Wouldnt that just slow the rotting and help preserve them even more?
#119 to #46 - thegrandexemplar (10/25/2013) [-]
nah, cause like most zombies probably wouldn't remember to wear a jacket, and would just straight up get frozen. Sure, they'd be preserved for some later generation, but they wouldn't be able to kill me any time soon, being frozen solid and all.
#126 to #119 - dontread (10/25/2013) [-]
ah probably. Though it wouldn't happen right away. So you'd have to be pretty extra careful for the first couple of months before you could relax about all that.
User avatar #69 to #20 - KayRed (10/25/2013) [-]
Where is your proof that zombies are affected by cold?
User avatar #118 to #69 - commontroll (10/25/2013) [-]
Because they still have a human body, and humans have to have a lot of gear and experience to survive the cold like that. If they're undead, their blood will freeze and coagulate and they'll be unable to move because the dead do not produce their own body heat.

If they're alive and infected (which is the only thing that makes sense, a brain requires all the vital organs we need now) then just like a human who runs into the tundra, they would die of hypothermia just like you would if you were out there in shorts and a t-shirt with no heating to go into for a day, much less several days.
User avatar #127 to #118 - KayRed (10/25/2013) [-]
Need I remind you, Zombies are a work of fiction, thus their physical traits are arbitrary. I mean **** , I can could write a story about space zombies that can survive extreme temperature, and can survive in a vacuum, and it'll all be legit.
User avatar #128 to #127 - commontroll (10/25/2013) [-]
And I'm speaking on a scientific level. If it's an infection that simply reduces pain receptors and such, then they will die from the cold. And that's the most likely thing to happen.
User avatar #129 to #128 - KayRed (10/25/2013) [-]
"If" being the key word. The infection, like the zombie can have any trait, because, as I've said, it's fiction.
User avatar #130 to #129 - commontroll (10/25/2013) [-]
Yes, but we're discussing as if this is not fiction. Thus it's illogical to say "Hurr, fiction, so I can make it up!" We're discussing this as a hypothetical and theoretical thing. Because of this, rules of logic and reality are needed.
User avatar #131 to #130 - KayRed (10/25/2013) [-]
My point isn't that it's fiction so you can't talk about it scientifically, my point is that you're talking definitely about something that is arbitrary.
User avatar #133 to #131 - commontroll (10/26/2013) [-]
That's what you do with theoretical logic. You reason as if it wasn't fiction, so you then figure out how it would work. The human body can only withstand so much, not to mention, it wouldn't be an apocalypse if they weren't very strong.

#35 to #30 - thegrandexemplar (10/25/2013) [-]

User avatar #40 to #35 - commontroll (10/25/2013) [-]
Eskimo is actually a racially slur given to them by the Vikings. It's saying they smell awful (like bad fish if I remember correctly).
#120 to #40 - thegrandexemplar (10/25/2013) [-]
Oh **** , actually? Guess I'm probably not gonna be very welcome in the Inuit tribe eh?
User avatar #121 to #120 - commontroll (10/25/2013) [-]
I know it's for sure a slur, don't remember if it's that though. But yeah, they'd hate that.

Personally, I would go for the opposite, the jungles of Central America. Thorns everywhere, predators and heat, those zombies would get wrecked from it all. Plus I could farm and such in there, and wall off my land from everything else.
#122 to #121 - thegrandexemplar (10/25/2013) [-]
But what if zombie jungle predators?
User avatar #123 to #122 - commontroll (10/25/2013) [-]
That's if it is even compatible to afflict anything other than humans. Viruses can only genetically effect certain species, and take a lot of adapting to jump to another species. So who knows what might happen. I'd be more terrified of a zombie walrus or whale than a zombie jaguar.
#124 to #123 - thegrandexemplar (10/25/2013) [-]
Maybe... but are you willing to take the risk? Cold for sure is safeish, Heat relies on nature being a bitch.
also, z- zombie whale?
User avatar #125 to #124 - commontroll (10/25/2013) [-]
Terrifying honestly.

And honestly, I already live in an incredibly hot area with plenty of thorns. I'd be willing to take the risk personally, especially since it's closer for me.

Though my favorite plan is to go to a small mountain town and wall it off and get power, running water, etc. and become a trade hub.

User avatar #43 to #42 - jellybaby (10/25/2013) [-]
They couldn't leave straight away, though, because they were all old boats abandoned on the shore (I think), and the zombies were right behind them.
The water was shallow enough for someone to stand up, but also deep enough for someone to drown, and the zombies just clambered up the ropes and stuff.
User avatar #53 to #42 - huntergriff (10/25/2013) [-] land of the dead...The zombies pretty much fall into the water and walk all the way to the city in the movie and proceed to **** **** up
User avatar #115 to #53 - gabrielcortez (10/25/2013) [-]
Yup, and in Survival Of The Dead a bunch of them are standing on the floor of the ocean near the harbor and jump up to grab a hold of the guy who fell in the water.

And in uh.. Zombi? I think it was Zombi, there was a zombie fighting a shark.

So yeah, water isn't going to do much towards zombies. They can just walk along the floor of a river/lake/ocean though eventually they will be carried away by the stream, even then they could just turn up on a beach somewhere and continue walking.

Only problem with water is the pressure at a certain depth.

User avatar #101 to #100 - machinimax (10/25/2013) [-]
Because he trust his family and cares only for them.
You gotta prove yourself to him before he takes you for anything.

I always kinda figured I'd crack almost immediately, especially in a hospital. I have a phobia of them. In any other location I thought I might stand some sort of chance, I'd at least try to move or find somewhere safe but if I was ever in a hospital, I'd most likely sit in a corner and cry quietly to myself until I was eaten.

I'm a very sick person right now though and that sickness actually taught me something about myself.
A part of what I have involves very intense, horrifying hallucinations. Once I was actually put in the hospital specifically for people to observe these hallucinations. While in the hospital I "woke up" so to speak to find myself in a hospital filled with monsters. Not exactly zombies, these were more disoriented and disfigured. I got up and actually tried to escape the hospital, apparently under the notion of wanting to get to and protect my family. Naturally I was caught almost immediately. The doctors and nurses came to get me but in my state of sheer panic and terror, I didn't register who or what they were and fought against them in an effort to break free and reunite myself with my family.
There's not too much to this story. The doctors and nurses eventually got me back under control and put me back in my room. I came out of it, went back to normal and they informed me of what had transpired. It wasn't really a big deal for them.
I a small part of me was proud of myself when I heard the story.
I managed to do the one thing that I always figured I wouldn't be able to do in literally one of the worst situations I can imagine. Yeah I got caught. If what I imagined had been real I would be dead almost in an instant but that's not what I focused on. I got up and fought when I thought I wouldn't and for that I was proud.

Realistically I'd be dead. I've got kidney failure, and I have to have dialysis to stay alive. The odds of a dialysis center running during a zombie apocalypse are pretty ******* slim. But that would also mean I had nothing to lose if the situation became totally ****** . I'd see how many of the many many bullets I have I could put to good use. I may have kidney failure, but I'm still an olympic level marksman.

Suicide. Definitely suicide. Zombie outbreak isn't the same as zombie apocalypse. Any apocalypse and I'm putting one through my dome. If mankind survives at all it'll take centuries to rebuild to the point where we're at and why would I want to live on in such a scenario? No medicine, no electricity, no anything. Just right back to square one. I'll pass.
#19 to #15 - shruika (10/25/2013) [-]
I agree 100%, When i was asked that question i told them, i'd probably kill myself. I wouldn't want to live in a scenario like that and possibly watch everyone i love and care about become decomposed hungry little ***** . Rather save myself the trouble

Not to be a buzz kill but unless the zombie virus, or rage virus, or what ever the **** is turning them is airborne or blood transferred, including via Mosquito's and only a certain very low like 20% of the population is immune, then zombie virus will be killed out with in a week, month longest

We are too efficient as a species at killing things that zombies pose literally 0 threat to us, Mosquito's are more threatening to us then zombies, word will get out very quickly and America, Australia, Britian etc etc etc will rush to action

Tanks, Helicopers, Jets, Artillery > zombie horde

We really are just too excellent at killing things
User avatar #89 to #84 - hoban (10/25/2013) [-]
While thats true, for me the fear of zombies doesnt come from "how long will they be around" but more of "will they get me before the forces get here 2 kill them?" i mean if we where to think that zombies may continue decomp even when reanimated then that would mean we could just wait it out. I think its sort of a "In the mean time" fear
User avatar #102 to #84 - DrollHumor (10/25/2013) [-]
Actually I recommend reading not watching, **** the adaptation World War Z. The virus can actually spread far pretty quickly and depending upon how soon it kills and reanimates the person, the world will not recognize it to be anything more than something akin to rabies. Then there are the people who try to protect their infected loved ones by hiding them or escaping to other countries. All it takes is one zombie, and by the next day you could have a hundred.

I haven't seen the movie yet, but I knew when I read the IMDB description a year or so before it came out that they were going to royally screw it up.    
The book has to be my absolute favorite stand-alone book ever, though the survival guide does go very nicely with it to further explain that type of zombie and why certain tactics fail while others may succeed.

The Walking Dead is actually the perfect solution to that little logical problem. Everyone who ever dies will turn into a zombie, so it can't be contained even if every zombie is killed. There could be an outbreak at any time just because someone fell down the stairs or something.
#104 to #84 - thegamegestapo (10/25/2013) [-]
I hate to be the guy that argues in favour of zombie realism but what the hell:

There is no evidence to support the view that governments would respond correctly. Take a look at our response to the HIV/AIDS problem. Even so, lets assume that the governments of the world pull their heads out of their asses for long enough to mount some sort of response you've got to admit it's far from a simple problem:

1) Try explaining to the families that inevitably keep their "sick" relatives restrained that there is no cure for the affliction that we learned about the previous weekend and we need to shoot them in the face
2) We've got enough people believing the world is ending without walking corpses eating people alive
3) Muh looters and opportunists
4) Try explaining to any rational person that dead people are coming to life and they need to abandon an area. See Hurricane Katrina. Also good luck organising that evacuation effort
5) Anti-personnel weapons aren't designed to remove the head or destroy the brain. See Battle of Yonkers (exaggerated, but you get the point).
6) I know our military isn't equipped or trained to go room to room, house to house across the entirety of the British Isles plus any other country that doesn't have the military capacity to sweep it up themselves, up to and including regions of the world where the 'Great Satan and its Imperialist Dogs' aren't welcome.

And that's just if you're talking slow, bite-y, virus caused zombies. If it's Romero zombies, where everyone who dies comes back as one of them, then we're utterly screwed.

Step 1: Find best possible weapon. A large, blunt object or sharp thing. Multiple if possible.
Step 2: Find zombies and kill them.
Step 3: Die in horrific pain and violence.

I won't survive in a zombie apocalypse, I am weak and frail, I would not get far at all.
I will bring the final glory to my family and to my ancestors. I'd want to die sooner rather than later. I'd rather die with bravery than live in fear.
