zombies, zombies, zombies

lets admit it – the zombie phenomenon has gone huge and beyond popular.  

the days of slow moving zombies have been replaced with the scary quick and running dead.  there’s huge disputes of how zombie speed should be interpreted, you have folks on both sides of the fence.  i personally don’t discount the idea of a quick paced running brain eater.  rigamortis only lasts for so long before the body goes limp again – so why wouldn’t they be able to sprint after a few hours?

but lets look into how this scenario will most likely happen.  a burger infected with a strain of mad cow disease that mutated into the zombie infection could happen, but The Oatmeal also has a pretty good idea of how it could happen:

one novelty i found that was pretty snazzy was by mathmatiks on etsy – the Zombie Survival Single Gasmask Pendant>
