When you're alive, your subconscious hides and disables most of you're strength. When you're dead, on the other hand...

In this comments section, several funnyjunkers explain how our body controls our use of muscles.

And other funnyjunkers complain about them using logic.

And other funnyjunkers joke about bags of crisps.

And I make an utterly useless comment.

The mind no longer inhibiting strength doesn't even make sense. Their muscles and bones would be destroyed within minutes of them using such strength and they're already decaying as is.
#47 to #44 - ainise (09/21/2013) [-]
You're talking about beings who are completely decaying, not drinking water, not eating regularly at all, resting for weeks to years at a time depending on the version, and this is your argument against it?

The mind truly does inhibit a persons strength. I don't really see how anyone can question that. There are diseases that overharden bones, a few changes to the genetic code that massively increase strength, muscle growth or bone density. There are a slew of arguments for/against this mess, and there's no question that diseases can alter genetic code. The issue I have with trying to make zombies work in the real world: Water and Food. Just few DAYS without intaking any food or water and you're in a dangerous situation.

The problem with zombies being a real thing is sustaining themselves, not destroying their muscles/bones. There are numerous reasons why zombies can have herculean strength or unbreakable bones but their ability to keep a human body running for days, weeks, months and even years without food nor water is what makes them impossible.

Diseases that break down the brain to its basis, making someone crazy and even cannibalistic, exist. Hell Bath salts can do this to you. There are people out there with virtually unbreakable bones - something like 1/800 million. With the simple duplication of a gene you can have herculean strength - 1/600 million have it in people. Rarely these come without side-effects as seen in a Germanic family who's bones are being used to help understand, and possibly even cure, osteoporosis along with other bone problems. Everything here has been seen in people - however surviving for a year without water...no.

I believe he's saying that with all the broken logic inherent to zombies, them tearing themselves apart through overexertion is a strange place to draw the line and call it ridiculous.
It doesn't really matter to me; when the zombies hit, I'm infecting myself and hugging someone I hate.

Why is it in zombie movies, the zombies aren't all a bunch of obese people who were too slow to get away?
User avatar #63 to #61 - mondominiman ONLINE (09/21/2013) [-]
I'm guessing if it's after awhile the fat zombies have been eaten by the smaller skinnier zombies.

When you are alive, your body limits your strength capacity since if you struggle to much you will damage your muscles. Sometimes, your body removes these limits when your adrenaline kicks in. One time my brother was fixing his car when one of the jacks broke. The car almost crushed his chest yet he was able to hold up about a ton of steel with his bare hands for about 10 seconds. my dad was with him so he quickly slid a block under it. However, his muscles were completely ripped apart and his entire body ached for the next 3 months. When you are a zombie, your body sets no limits.

#40 to #37 - thasmackdown **User deleted account** (09/21/2013) [-]
Right, thats more of a hypothesis, but i've heard of a few cases. Personally, I do not buy it.

Even if it was true, though, would that not mean that zombies would be ripping their own muscles apart, thus making themselves weak and useless very shortly after they come back to life and **** **** up for a few seconds

Counter point: zombies are fictional and i'm an idiot for over thinking it.

You mean like that thing when in times of stress people perceive time as moving slightly slower?

When you're alive, you're mind won't let you perform these tasks.   
When you're dead, on the other hand, you can't do 			****		 'cause you're a corpse!

Isn't that the problem though? The reason your mind restricts you is cause extraneous stress leads to muscle damage. Zombies don't even heal from their wounds, wouldn't their first mauling essentially cripple them for the rest of their afterlife?

HAH! Colin Mochrie can't rip out his rib cage! Credit to whoever made a similar comment last time ripping a rib cage out was mentioned in the content

The theory of being turned into a zombie is that the virus takes over and all it makes you want to do is spread the virus to other people. To do this it is thought to block out all brain control except for movement and eating(which isnt necessary). When this is done you no longer know your own strength or it affects your muscles in some way that gives you this strength. Either that or its because that seal on chips is air tight. Why the **** do you think there's so much air?
User avatar #60 to #55 - brokenhalf (09/21/2013) [-]
my theory on zombies is that they just over work their bodies. so when you pull a bag of chips apart and feel a slight pain, your brain stops you a bit. but since zombies are mindless cannibals they just push it to the extremes. just my theory
#21 - mordormemes (09/20/2013) [-]
bitch you can tear open a rib cage easy slip your fingers underneath the edge right next too but not on the solar plexus plant foot firmly on stomach and yank like a mofo there you are easy access too deliciious blood pumoing heart
User avatar #1 - kyrill (09/20/2013) [-]
because we dont want to spill the chips, and we don't care what happens when we tear the ribs out.
User avatar #2 to #1 - rubiksoctohedron **User deleted account** (09/20/2013) [-]
also due to not being able to feel pain zombies can use the full force of what muscles they have which for the same amount of muscle would actually be three times greater than a living human

i thought about that, then i wondered, if theyre like, rotting, wouldnt the necrotic flesh have an effect on overall power?
User avatar #4 to #3 - neverborn (09/20/2013) [-]
it would also have an effect on it's ability to be animate, but good golly gosh, the disgusting little flesh bag just keeps chomping
#5 to #4 - digitalmasterx ONLINE (09/20/2013) [-]
thats why they used to be slow, to not rip their body parts of when moving, now they evolved
User avatar #6 to #5 - neverborn (09/20/2013) [-]
zombies nowadays tend to be 'infected' rather than undead. feral living beasties can manage being fast and the increased strength feats without being corpses

the zombies you see are infected omega scum, the real alpha zombies are sipping martinies somewhere on a ship sending beta's to do their dirty deeds.

You do realize that using 100% of your strength will absolutely, completely destroy your muscles after 1 use. And I don't just mean it would be painful to use them: They would become completely useless.

Our bodies limit us to using less because using our full strength by definition means it's a one-time use, ever unless you have some serious healing abilities and even then...

A few people have gotten close because of incredible emergency situations, and it took them longer than the normal entire lifespan of a zombie. And they were ridiculously weak during that time. So if zombies used their full strength all the time, most zombies you encountered would have almost no strength whatsoever.

Thats what pissed me off with Dale's death. He was the ONLY ONE in the whole series to die, not from zombie bites or being shot, but by having his rib cage ripped open. To add to that, so many characters have been in his position with zombies but they were never ripped open.

as everyone is saying, when you can think your mind shuts down your true strength since it'd be like overclocking a computer or machine, giving a great boost at first but it burns it/ruins it if continued. Dead people just don't care.
User avatar #19 - redrex (09/20/2013) [-]
because as a zombie, your brain wouldnt give a **** about worrying about tearing your muscles
User avatar #17 - jums (09/20/2013) [-]
When you're alive your brain is like "yo don't exert your muscles"
When you're dead, your nerves are dead. No nerves= nobody can tell you what to do.
