My theory is that society won't collapse instantly like all the stories say it does. I imagine the governments would react immediately and most likely succeed in qeulling the outbreak before it spreads too far.
User avatar #33 to #7 - Mahazama (11/12/2012) [-]
Right? You would think that with all of the zombie lore in pop culture, more people would seem to understand the threat and take intelligent action against it. Then again, it's not like the disease is going to play out exactly like we expect it to, but still, most people have some idea of what to do (going for the brains, no matter what the situation, is probably going to be the safest bet. [unless contagion is possible simply by proximity, in which case you're completely ****** ]).
User avatar #67 to #7 - Crusader (11/12/2012) [-]
World War Z is probably the most accurate.
Society didn't collapse, but there were 3 waves of immigration in North America to Northern Canada. And of course there is the fact that in the scenario int he book, this all started due to China's black market organ program, that means 1 infected person could infect 50 people due to their heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, skin even, a heart would reanimate almost instantly, what about a piece of infected skin, a day, a week, imagine a month after the black market surgery, you're in the grocery store of Everytown, USA, suddenly you collapse, you go to the hospital, if you make ti that far, you might reanimate in the store, and attack people there, zombies rushing out after people infecting the town. If you do make it to the hospital, all it takes is for you to reanimate and scare one of the paramedics, he jumps back and his blood soaked hands touch a counter, then other people touch it. Maybe he doesn't get a chance to put gloves on and was dealing with one of the victims, now his hands have this infected blood soaked into them, skin absorbs 80% of all liquids that touch them, he helps out someone that maybe wasn't bit, his skin releases a bit of that toxin, suddenly BAM, infected.

Sure the government might be able to suppress overt outbreaks, maybe quarantine a town, if it is just that town, but what if they don't know what caused it, and suddenly it's happening everywhere, busting down the door.
Think, with all this immigration, someone sneaking an infected family member in a trailer could easily take the infection across the continent, you might think it's contained, but suddenly cases are popping up all over, not to mention the fact that people will be hoarding what they have, and therefore a lot of service jobs will be useless and that means the economy goes down the tube.
Then there are the people who think they should leave the USA and become city-states and try to secede.
It might take a while 5 years, but in the end,

what if it's a government planned outbreak
#61 - Fgner (11/12/2012) [-]
Okay, let's discuss this realistically. For a zombie outbreak to occur, it would require the transmission of a virus, bacteria, or fungal infection. Now, in order for this outbreak to gain any momentum, the infection would have to spread rapidly.
The first option for such explosive growth is a dormant bacterial infection (as bacterial infections are virtually always contact based). The bacteria would lie dormant until death, where it would assume control. It could spread throughout half the planet before the first activation occured, and by then it would be to late to isolate it. However, bacteria are often very easy to kill, so the elimination of the infection could be as simple as some sanitizer bombs and antibacterial pills.
The second option is an airborn fungal infection. This infection would be similar to the ant mind control fungus, that assumes control of it's host by hijacking the nervous system. Fungi also tend to grow and divide rapidly. However, fungi have a nasty habit of killing their host themselves and have rather short lifetimes. So this must be ruled out.
The third option is an airborn viral infection. This infection would splice the genes of it's unfortunate victim, similar to the Chimera virus in Resistance. Viruses are so tiny, that filters from gas masks would most likely not even prevent the infection. Therefore, no way could possibly prevent the infection of anyone downwind of any viral outbreak. Also, because it works on a genetic level, and viruses can mutate much more rapidly than any other organism (well, they aren't living, so they aren't really organisms), they could assume an adapt and survive method unbelievably fast. By modifying the way the host breeds, grows, etc. the gene could make it's host virtually indestructable (numerous hearts, turn the entire body into one big brain, grow plates of armor, etc) This is the most likely event. CONTINUED
#63 to #61 - Fgner (11/12/2012) [-]
But, looking at the requirements of this virus and it's ability to mutate the body and adapt to it's environment, as well as the rate of infection being so high, nothing could stop it. No humans could be sent in, as it bypasses all filters, no bombs could destroy it, as it would only cause forces that spread the virus even further, and viruses can lay dormant for virtually forever, ensuring future outbreaks no matter what humans do to clean it. We would be ****** no matter what the moment the first virus came out.

You are right. If self-replicating nanotechnology were to come out and machines gain enough sentience and decide to become the rulers, the power of the cognitive functions would be total dictators as to the victor. However, if the machines were really that far ahead and humanity was too stupid to augment themselves past the machines, the machines deserve to become the primary race. After all, they would be clearly superior, and because of their ability to feel emotions and make cognitive thought, they would have souls just like humans.

According to the WarZ novel it took the government over 3 years to almost erradicate all of the zombies, humanity almost reached extinction. Mainly because China covered the issue and then the virus spread through the black organ market. The US did not do much until it was too late.

User avatar #59 - Crusader (11/12/2012) [-]
I don't think that it would work that way, there would be too much pandemonium for the government to keep everything together and they would either have to give ground, or shoot everything which would cause more people to fight and die and would leave few people to govern over.
Honestly, the most realistic scenario I can think of is in World War Z where they try to hide it, go behind the Rockies, get everything together and 10 years later go on the offensive and gradually work their way across the USA and Canada. And later would gradually work through other countries.
User avatar #72 to #59 - Lulzilla (11/12/2012) [-]
You see, People act as if America or any country for that matter is just giant city after giant city. No, Most of america is small towns and trees. Facing a foe that cannot be beaten normally without weapons humans will naturally hide and flee. People aren't that dumb that they'll just stand out in the open. They'll go back home. People might invade shopping centers but that can be controlled. American forces aren't stupid either. They know the threats and dangers before being sent so they know not to get close. If so retreat. They'll figure out that the head is the key and start shooting the head. They don't practice countless hours on the firing range for nothing. The enemy will most likely be slowed down due to the muscle fibers being destroyed from attacks, and trying to pry things open. They will essentially destroy themselves by relentlessly putting 100% of muscle power the human body can do. Short streaks of using 100% of your muscles capability can seriously destroy your muscle fibers and connective tissues. Zombies will be pretty easy to beat.
User avatar #75 to #72 - Crusader (11/12/2012) [-]
Ah, but you must remember that humans won't be the only zombies, how many horses, cows, dogs, cats, wolves, bears or even birds are there going to be?
not to mention that the scenario in World War Z also includes that this outbreak originates in China due to the organ trade, every major city would be infected reasonably quick, and then people fleeing and hiding infected friends and family would also end up smuggling infected out into those rural areas.
Not to mention that the infection, by it's very nature preserves body tissue, meaning that muscles wouldn't deteriorate, and for the most part, the only natural effect that would stop a zombie is freezing.

You'd only have to survive until winter or summer started (depending on where you are). At which point they would freeze, or melt. Unless what ever zombifies them also mummifies them. Also they would be eaten by wildlife. Also, if it's spread by bites, there's no way it'll cross oceans. How many people are getting on a plane after being bitten? Also, what the hell are zombies going to do against tanks or APCs? Helicopters?

>at which point they would freeze
And then thaw out in the winter. Who says they'll decompose?
>also they would be eaten by wildlife
The zombies would kill a lot of the wildlife, and what if the virus is toxic to everything besides humans?
>how many people are getting on a plane after being bitten?
What if it takes days to turn? What if you've heard rumours of what happens to bitten people, and everyone is saying that there's a cure in the West? Why would you stick around when there's zombies everywhere? What if some Chinese organ farm sends infected organs overseas and they get transplanted since they can't scan for something they don't know exists?
>what the hell are zombies going to do against
Better question is, what are tanks going to do against zombies? Tanks use HEAT or SABOT, or maybe even canister shots. They're designed to take out other tanks, not massive amounts of people. Plus, you're trying to destroy the head, not blow them up; all you're doing is creating a bunch of crippled zombies that will just sneak up on you later. The zombies would swarm the tank and if a hatch is left open, they're done. Plus, tanks don't exactly carry a lot of food or water, and having 50 zombies banging on your big metal coffin would probably drive the crew insane or make one of them want to escape and open the hatch.
Same **** as the tank, they're designed to fight enemy infantry, not zombies.
Rockets and machine guns, but you don't have infinite ammo, nor do you have infinite fuel. Once again, designed for the wrong purpose

Because in most wars the enemy ran towards the US army without any sort of tactical plan.

There's no way the army would last more than a few weeks. They're used to having everything they need ready. If you're cut off from supplies, and you're there just shooting zombies over and over, while the sound of the gun attracts more, it's not going to end well.

Not if they tried to hide it, not even the government, just normal people.
Can't grasp the fact that their brother/sister/husband/wife/son/daughter/etc. is now dead, but still walking around, maybe they lock them in their old room, something happens while they are at work, the zombie gets out, out on the street it attacks someone, maybe it doesn't attack someone buts falls in a river, treatment plants don't have the chemicals to kill this new disease, and because of that everyone that gets that water in a wound (washing out a cut from a bread knife, a scrape from tripping, just taking a shower or drinking a glass of water with an open sore) in theory could be infected.
How many people rely on that plant, a thousand, a hundred thousand, a million? Within days you could have a theoretical hundred thousand zombies roaming around town, not to mention that they would go to the hospital, where other people that are not infected, are now sitting next to them in waiting rooms, in the hallways, imagine surgeries where the patients dies, and comes back to bite the surgeon.

Not to mention you are relying on this being a disease, what if it is a virus, a prion, where there is no cure.
#110 - thecrazyonedf (11/12/2012) [-]
here's what I think would be required for the zombie apocalypse to succeed.

1. it would have to be dormant in at least 30-40% of the earth's population and activate at the same time, the military is simply too strong for zombies, so they would have to attack them from the inside. them and the rest of the world.

2. they would have to be like resident evil's T-virus, otherwise, they would all lose their legs in a year and their arms in a few months, then we'd just have a bunch of zombie worms squirming around everywhere. because every time you DO anything, you damage your muscles slightly. this is why you become sore after working out. the T-virus regenerated damage.

3. remember that 40% most of that would have to be military AND some of the people who would actually know what to do in the zombie apocalypse, or else the scramble for supplies would cause many of us to kill each other just by depleting resources found in walmart.

there are more, but these are 3 big ones.

Does the zombie outbreak start with only one zombie? Or does it infect a whole bunch at once, starting a quick swarm of 1000-2000? Even so, it would take years to infect most of the world, by which time it would have been stopped by authorities. You could just go to wherever it wasn't infected for about a month.
User avatar #36 to #22 - gammajk (11/12/2012) [-]

User avatar #64 to #22 - Crusader (11/12/2012) [-]
Well, the base line for the zombie apocalypse scenarios are taken mostly from World War Z, a novel, pretty good.
In it it starts in China, where there are a few, but they spread quickly because no one realizes it, and many of the infected are used in black market organ deals.
So Li is robbing a store, gets bit when he runs away, gets caught, sentenced to death, maybe he killed the clerk, they then use his organs in the black market, they don't know he has some zombie disease.
It's bad enough if his heart goes to someone with a weak immune system, they would reanimate almost instantly, what about a liver, a kidney, a bit of infected skin, that person may make it home, or they may collapse and reanimate in the middle of a hospital hallway, then they have free access to other sick people right there creating a swarm, and no one knows what to do.

Let's take rage zombies, which are the alternative, the ones above are classic, headshot only, kind of slow, that sort of thing, these are the fast, still technically living, infection in seconds. In 28 days later they get infected in a government lab and escape, in a populated city,t hey run onto the street, infect someone, then infect another, soon enough, there's thousands in a well populated city in a day, millions within a 2 weeks, and theoretically, due to how long it would take to tell everyone how to deal with the threat, and mobilize the military, 4 weeks after patient 0, tens of millions are now dead, or infected.

1. Slow mindless zombies that get their heads crushed easily and it's the only spot to kill (ridiculous and not likely at all) - Just enjoy life around... easily killing any 			************		 in front of you.   
2. Super fast zombies like in L4D (not likely) - You're dead, you have time to do nothing.   
3. Zombies which retain everything a human has except their mentality (they'll move as fast as normal (hopefully since they'd be retarded they would limp, fall or not sprint fast enough) Can be killed normally but nervous system doesn't work (so they don't feel pain so shooting the head still is the most effective way, but making it bleed to death or stopping the heart will work too) &lt;-- this is the most realistic way and more likely than the invincibility 			********		 of brains destroying only people make up.   
Only problem now is, to find a disease that could spread easily into more than 90% of the world's population... all we get in this world is aids and flues that make you cough and sneeze.

In all reality, when (not if, but when) the Zombie Apocalypse actually happens, we don't know if it'll be an air board virus or what.
So it could it and wipe out over 60% of the population of the world in a blink of an eye, people dropping everywhere succumbing to the virus.
You think you'd survive that, be "immune"... but you're not. Only a small percentage of human beings would be, and even then there's very little possibility of any kind of vaccine being made for it.
And all you people with "zombie plans" who think they are "prepared" for when the proverbial **** hits the fan... you're not the only one.
There would be thousands, millions even, doing the exact same thing you would... your plan wouldn't be all that "special"

So in the event of a zombie apocalypse, do what I plan on doing (That is, if you aren't dead yet).
Pull up a chair, crack open a beer, and watch the sun set one final time... and then?
Then go out in style, take as many of those zombie bastards with you as you can.

I have like 8k round of ammunition for my ak-47's (semi auto) And about 4k for my AR-15 (semi as well) Then shotgun ammo tons of it for most any gauge but most is birdshot, last resort. however with my desolate location as long as it's not airborne, I have a better chance than most people.
