I've never heard of that. What is it?
User avatar #104 to #103 - garaichu ONLINE (06/22/2013) [-]
Fallout. Ghouls are people who's lost a lot of skin, hair and such because of nuclear radiation, but at the same time that same radiation keeps them alive. Feral Ghouls are ghouls whose brains have deteriorated so far that they've gone completely off their rocker.
User avatar #106 to #104 - pokedigimon (06/22/2013) [-]
That sounds terrifying.
User avatar #107 to #106 - garaichu ONLINE (06/22/2013) [-]
It is. Many ghouls ingame are swell guys, but going feral is a one-way ticket to crazy man-eater.
You can't get "infected" per se by them though, so bites aren't necessarily a death-sentence.
User avatar #108 to #107 - pokedigimon (06/22/2013) [-]
Not being bitten by them, just the idea of them. Someone that's still technically human, but one who looks terrifying and eats you alive.
User avatar #109 to #108 - garaichu ONLINE (06/22/2013) [-]
Oh yeah, that's true. Worse yet if you knew the ghoul and he/she ended up going feral.
User avatar #123 to #108 - fuzzyballs (06/22/2013) [-]

Hmm, then surviving would be a lot harder.
User avatar #59 to #58 - pokedigimon (06/22/2013) [-]
Exactly. I'm pretty sure that if a scenario like that actually happened, then every single human would be dead.
User avatar #60 to #59 - lolfire (06/22/2013) [-]
Well, there are a lot of bunkers capable of surviving the nuclear attack. As long as enough people could breed in them, sort of like the fallout vaults then maybe humanity might stand a chance.

Most of the surface population would die and then it's just standard search and supply squads for a few hundred years until most of the radioactivity has subsided.
User avatar #61 to #60 - pokedigimon (06/22/2013) [-]
The clean food and water they had would run out after only a couple decades, so they would simultaneously dehydrate and starve to death.
User avatar #62 to #61 - lolfire (06/22/2013) [-]
It depends how big the nuclear fallout is.

I mean the entire world can't be nuked. There will be areas left untouched, at least by radioactivity. Canned foods and vault hydroponics should suffice. At least until a more permanent solution can be reached. As long as crop seeds are stored in the bunker before the end then they should be fine.

Also, the hydroponic systems could act as water filters so that things like shower water and urine can be recycled.
User avatar #95 to #62 - pokedigimon (06/22/2013) [-]
You do have a point, there is the Svalbard Global Seed Vault in Norway, so I guess humanity could survive underground long enough until all the surface radiation has sunsided, but by that time, there would be so many genetic deformities in humans and animals that they probably wouldn't survive much longer. Also, if the humans didn't have deformities, then the animals would probably still attack them as soon as they smelled them.
#96 to #95 - lolfire (06/22/2013) [-]
Now that is the question.

In a zombie apocalypse, is it just humans affected or do animals zombify.....
I mean I'd be pretty tempted to opt out if dogs were infected...
User avatar #100 to #96 - pokedigimon (06/22/2013) [-]
Well the zombie scenario I'm thinking is that a lethal virus starts to mutate at a much quicker rate than normal because of the radiation, goes into the sinuses and affects the brain (like in this video: ) and causes them to have the same symptoms as in the video, than it could infect animals too, hypothetically.

What if Zombies wandered into rivers and dams and lakes and then their blood from open wounds and such seeped into the water, thus contaminated all drinkable water and dooming humans to a slow, painful demise in which we watch each other turn into Zambies.

Don't forget that you can't go outside after a nuclear apocalypse for a few generations.

User avatar #63 to #54 - odonnell (06/22/2013) [-]
I hate how Zombie Apocalypse scenarios (Either in Films, TV shows, or video games) ignore food scavenging as one of the main priorities.
Water would be easy enough to acquire (Assuming you don't live in a desert and have fresh water steams and lochs in your country)
Fuel could be acquired from gas pumps as usual, if they've been drained, then abandoned cars would have some (Assuming it doesn't dry up)
Armour, weapons etc would all be easily to loot from local shops. (Even if it is only a kitchen knife and t-shirt).

Food would be in abundance for the first few weeks, but once it starts to pass itself by date, it could make it harder for you by risking food poisoning.

Yes, I over think things, i have next to no social life.

User avatar #88 to #63 - robbyarcane (06/22/2013) [-]
play the last of us.. it's really good in details like that, sometimes that's all your looking for is food. and if you listen to people in the background, they talk about how starving they are and what not.. it's a super good game, and i'd recommend it to anybody!
User avatar #113 to #88 - odonnell (06/22/2013) [-]
***Spoilers Ahead***
I've got the last of us. I never noticed much of food. I did hear the AI talk about starving etc and seen the graffiti complaining about rations etc. But in the actual gameplay, i spent the majority of my time looking for crafting materials for shivs and melee upgrades. As for health etc, there wasn't much for food, it was mostly just health packs.

It was a great game though, i like how they made it possible to sneak through most of the game, like you would try to do if you were in an apocalypse. Also by limiting the ammo it made it more real, other than some mindless shooting like in COD etc.

The ending was pretty emotional, i had a lump in my throat. The way Joel busts in to save ellie and then runs with her in her arms, like he did with his daughter in the beginning. This was the first game i've played thats made me feel feelings.
User avatar #214 to #63 - johananas (06/23/2013) [-]
Water would only be drinkable in bottleform, because the people who kill it is ... Well ... Zombies. So that is a valuable ressource.
User avatar #82 to #63 - fuzzyballs (06/22/2013) [-]
because looking at a guy scavenging for food and water for half a movie is boring, you don't want to see that
User avatar #116 to #82 - odonnell (06/22/2013) [-]
Not really. Thinking of the risks involved of being attacked while looting food from stores, cars etc would be quite tense. Every corner the survivor would turn would be tense in the expectation of him getting jumped.

Also, it wouldn't need to be the majority of the movie, it would only need to give it recognition. Thinking of how sparse food would become, giving quotes like "We've not had a decent meal in days now" etc while they're wandering. If it was a traveling group of survivors (Other than trying to settle down, because we all know how well that works especially if the infected have improved hearing and smell, you'll be surrounded withing a few days) then finding water would come as part of the journey (Well, if it was based in any Northern Hemisphere country) they would pass by plenty of burns and lochs.
User avatar #65 to #63 - lolfire (06/22/2013) [-]
Don't worry, I'm a stoner. I've sat for hours thinking about retarded things like this.

I never understood why people in zombie films never siphon fuel out of cars by using the hose and suck method. Though I did see something quite brilliant in The Walking Dead. Masking tape. You don't need armor if you have masking tape. Just a motorbike helmet and tape up every bit of exposed skin. They can't bite through the tape. And as long as you have ski gloves on then you're fine.
As for food, as long as you can set up a reinforced greenhouse with that plastic glass they have at banks then you're pretty much sorted for food. Just filter your urine and all excess water through the greenhouse so that you are recycling all usable water and you've got a pretty self-sufficient food source.
User avatar #125 to #65 - odonnell (06/22/2013) [-]
Yeah, the greenhouse would be a good idea, but it would be growing enough to keep you going until the next harvest. The fastest thing I can think of for growing is watercress, but that still takes about a week to grow, and its not very filling. The best opportunity for farming would be to have a few farms (Spread a nice distance apart to stop too many infected hoarding onto them). So say 5 farms, maintain each farm to grow a produce (Probably wheat to produce flour and eventually bread). Harvest one farm, replant, move on to the next farm while using the recent harvest to feed the people while you repeat for the next few farms.
User avatar #69 to #65 - omfgitsstsix (06/22/2013) [-]
Here's something to ponder when you're stoned next time:

Why does all the popular culture centered around zombies NEVER exist in a zombie apocalypse?
#78 to #69 - lolfire (06/22/2013) [-]
Actually I just thought of a movie where they know what zombies are....

Shaun of the dead.
User avatar #343 to #78 - cazabrow (06/23/2013) [-]
"Zombieland" better example
User avatar #71 to #69 - lolfire (06/22/2013) [-]
I was actually thinking that as I was marathoning my way through The Walking Dead.
Not once do they say the word Zombie. Nobody seems to have any idea what is happening. If a zombie apocalypse happened today then you would hear people screaming the word zombie all over the place.

I think maybe it's the writers disbelief that a zombie apocalypse could ever happen. So they set the movie/tv show/game in a universe where zombie culture has never existed.
User avatar #74 to #71 - omfgitsstsix (06/22/2013) [-]
A zombie apocalypse could easily happen.

Imagine if Justin Bieber demanded human sacrifices?

Granted, that'd be more like The Crazies--and they'd all be 12 year old girls--but you get my point.
#76 to #74 - lolfire (06/22/2013) [-]

#311 to #69 - amonomous (06/23/2013) [-]
I heard somewhere that people who make zombie movies and whatnot are placed in a different universe(?) in which people have no idea what zombies are.
User avatar #242 to #69 - roflsaucer (06/23/2013) [-]
I'm pretty sure it's because if the whole zombie culture existed, the zombie apocalypse wouldn't happen. For zombies to be a threat there needs to be a large number of them, and if the culture existed people could easily recognize zombies.
User avatar #212 to #69 - kingrayne (06/23/2013) [-]
it did in World War Z's book and The Walking Dead comics
User avatar #120 to #69 - fuzzyballs (06/22/2013) [-]

I wanted to buy a PS3 but with the PS4 coming out soon and seeing as it won't be backwards compatible. I don't want to wait several months to years, and that's even IF they decide to re-release the old games like Jak & Daxter, all the Ratchet and Clank and a few others as well.

That's something that nobody seems to think about when it comes to zombie apocalypse scenarios. Not even Max Brooks:
What about nuclear power plants? If they are not being looked after that usually means that their cooling systems will fail quite soon after, resulting in worldwide MCAs. Some of the reactors will just melt down into their collecting shells, but most of them will explode. That would result in a massive radiation of the whole planet, huge quantities of radioactive particles being dispersed in the atmosphere, leading to a drop in temperatures around the globe, that will be filled with radiating zombies.
With their density of nuclear plants especially Russia, the US and France would be highly radiated zones, making survival even harder or rather futile.

Or am I completely wrong with this theory?
#2 to #1 - rtokuj (06/22/2013) [-]
The goverment might deploy a lot of soldiers to protect the power plants and get a lot of people working there.
User avatar #3 to #2 - thepastryistrue (06/22/2013) [-]
Yes, but according to You need to login to view this link 'a lot of people' is always a bigger risk of being overwhelmed by zombies. If you have a group of 6 people and half of them are being 'turned' it's only 3 zombies against 3 humans. With 200 people it's 100 zombies. And everyone bitten will turn. So the advantage in numbers is actually a bigger risk.
Still, the amount of technology and manpower that has to be uphold in order to maintain the cooling systems (like fuel for the emergency generators and a constant water supply) is certainly too big to be managed in a scenario, where the 'initial attack' was not contained.

That issue is addressed in Day by Day Armageddon. Pretty good zombie book written in a diary format. In that book the radiation from the exploded plants cause the zombies who ventured into those zones stop decaying and emit radiation and exhibit different characteristics then the other zombies

Okay, There are like 15 different types of Fission reactor currently in use around the world, but they all have some basics in common. I'm gonna be talking about closed circuit pressurized light water reactors here because they are the most common.

So, worst case scenario here, like no one is there to take care of the reactor, all people are suddenly gone.

NPPs have automated fail safe systems to keep the reactor cores from overheating.
The systems slow the reactions to as low a level as possible, to keep the cores cool, but it still needs plenty of high pressure water circulating around it to keep it from overheating. The automated systems may have enough power to keep it cooled for about a week but then the fuel rod will overheat and meld down into a liquid mess which will react violently and heat up to insane temperatures. This will likely burn a hole though the 3 foot thick steel pressure vessel, If this is still pressurized (which it shouldn't be in case of a melt down, there are systems in place to prevent this) vast amounts of radioactive steam will explode out of the reactor and blow out the whole building. If it's a new building it has a thick concrete lining which will contain the radiative particles, but if it's an old one it might blow out the roof and spread radioactive fallout in the wind.

This is however pretty unlikely, and here is a more likely scenario.
**** goes down, and people realize the NPPs are a potential danger.
The military stations guards there as technicians start powering down the reactor.
It takes about a week to power it down and take the fuel rods out.
The rods are stored in a pool of water and are left to cool off.

User avatar #5 to #4 - fantomen (06/22/2013) [-]
Even if all people disappeared, the safety systems would likely still work.
The reactor would slow down. After a set amount of time the reactor would realize that no one is going to save it from a melt down, so it would slowly release the pressure from the system, this would make the melt down happen faster, but in a much safer way. The fuel rods would then melt down into a liquid and burn through the reactor vessel and insulation and burn their way all through the concrete floors and end up in a lump in the basement.
There would be no explosion or massive radiation leaks outside the power plant.
The worst thing that could happen wold be a fire, but most NPPs have very effective automated halon fire suppression systems to prevent that.
User avatar #7 to #5 - thepastryistrue (06/22/2013) [-]
I guess that depends on the construction type of the reactor, doesn't it? Older ones, like Russian or British graphite moderated reactors could still be a bit problematic, if they're not specifically looked after.
User avatar #10 to #7 - fantomen (06/22/2013) [-]
The old heavy water reactors can be a bit trickier, one the main reasons for this is that many of the old communist ones are built very poorly and shoddily. And have design flaws. For example the control rods in the Chernobyl plant got stuck when they got too hot meaning that they had no way of controlling the reactor. And they didn't have any neutron absorbers to inject into the coolant either because they didn't want to taint the expensive heavy water in the reactor.
But that also all the safety systems had been switched manual operation, and the warning systems were switched off on the request of some communist big-wig, and no one dared to question him about it even though they all knew how dangerous it was.
User avatar #12 to #10 - thepastryistrue (06/22/2013) [-]
If we compare the human failure in Chernobyl back then with a failure due to infection of the reactor personnel before the necessary steps can be taken (or considering that a lot of people would run home and try to protect their families as soon as the degree of the catastrophe becomes known), it could probably result in a lot more accidents.
User avatar #13 to #12 - fantomen (06/22/2013) [-]
Yes, there would probably be some accidents and meltdowns, but I most of them would not be nearly as bad as Chernobyl. I also think few people would run away back to their families. I think most of them would stay and do all the could to contain any reactor accident. That's what happened in Chernobyl too, the people that worked there saw it as their duty to protect the people of the nearby towns, so many of them worked hard trying to contain the accident until they chocked on the smoke from the fire or burned to death.
User avatar #14 to #13 - thepastryistrue (06/22/2013) [-]
I'd hope so!
User avatar #6 to #4 - thepastryistrue (06/22/2013) [-]

I suppose storing the fuel rods in dry cask storage containers would only work after they've been cooled down, right?
And after they're removed from the reactor core the probability of building up enough pressure to blast should be comparatively low, right?
User avatar #9 to #6 - fantomen (06/22/2013) [-]
Once the fuel rods are "powered up" they'll keep producing heat until they run dry.
You can stimulate them to produce more or less heat, but once they are up and running you'll need to cool them until they run out. The easiest way to do this is to submerge them in water with a neutron absorber in it. Storing them dry will just cause them to heat up again.

Once the rods are out there's nothing in the reactor to produce heat and turning the steam into water, so if there is no more steam pressure, there is no longer a risk for explosion.
#11 to #9 - thepastryistrue (06/22/2013) [-]
And the resulting xenon poisoning would reduce the radiation (at least for some time) even further.   
So we could reason that with a certain degree of foresight, if the necessary steps are taken, a catastrophe that'd diminish the possibilities to maintain the regular process of cooling an NPP (eg. a zombie apocalypse in a worst case scenario) would not necessarily lead to a global radiation. That's a comforting notion, I guess.

You know what really grinds my gears? The people who claim fast zombies(or infected who can take multiple gun shots) are not in fact zombies. Monsters have evolved through the ages to represent and keep up with human fears and social problems of the day. Back 80 years ago vampires were not sexy or hot or something you could empathize with(and they certainly didn't sparkle). No they were horrible disfigured undead monsters who hypnotized people and fed on them, but thanks to social changes and the media an ugly animal vampire is now a minority. The same changes have affected zombies today, and the fast zombie are here to stay. Better start running.
User avatar #220 to #177 - cullenatorguy (06/23/2013) [-]
Infected people (at least in The Last of Us) are not zombies. They're infected people. They aren't dead. The same goes for the infected in 28 Days Later. I think a zombie is described as being an undead monster.
User avatar #337 to #177 - spankyy (06/23/2013) [-]
I like the halfway point. Where vampires still seem human, but are in fact, still just trying to feed off people and further their own goals. Like still evil, but not monstrous animal looking creatures, just humans with certain...otherworldly traits.
User avatar #179 to #177 - iamthou (06/23/2013) [-]
most of the world still think of vampires that way, just stephanie meyer wanted to do a different version.

and I dont consider the infected in the last of us as zombies, mainly because they arent dead, they're still alive they've just had everything except they're animalistic instincts stripped of them.

I consider anything a zombie so long as it at one point died and came back, like jesus

maybe the zombies were caused by massive russian nuclear warfare and the radiation wave came to America and altered the genes of the people.
