Yes! I'm not the only one! Maybe the only one where I live, but NOT THE ONLY ONE! Okay, anyway, I was wondering if anyone had any kind of idea of when the outbreak might happen? Dumb question, but some websites offer what look like random dates and not a one of them are the same. There shouldn't be any set date, right? So why do they give apocalypse dates? Erg.

Resident Evil 5 annoucement
Lovely news in the zombie gaming realm! It has recently been let out that Resident Evil 5 is due for the PS3 and X-Box 360, date of release still unannounced. What I've seen of it so far is amazing.
For me, RE was the door to the world of zombies, and something still dear to my heart.
I don't want to spoil anything (although little info has been released). More information can be found at:http://media.ps3.ign.com/media/734/734381/imgs_1.html Current Mood: excited

Firstly hello to all. My name is Pos. I am very glad to have found a community of like minded individuals. I'm not sure about the rest of you but the rising of the dead is a fear which I have had for many years. With modern viruses, genetic manipulation and the general state of the world today. I am truly open to the possibility of the dead (or seemingly dead) becoming the major population of the world. I have taken initial survival measures and I have an immediate plan of action which I would carry out. I have had some long term considerations however I was hoping by coming here to find a long term plan which involves like minded individuals. Finding a safe haven, supplying the survivors pushing back the threat and recovering our world. Current Mood: predatory

Hi! I've never written much of anything before, and I can't sketch my way out of a soggy paper bag. I guess this strip is the end result of a lifetime of Nintendo and cartoons... I typically update twice daily, one morning and one evening.

Right now we're having a fiasco. Apparently Kevin Fairbanks (the guy who hosts our website), didn't pay his bills this month, took all his customers money, and vanished off the face of the earth. No warning, nothing. Everything got taken off line.... email.. websites... client lists. A bunch of the companies who use his hosting got together and paid his bills for him so they could rescue their data (by no means a cheap endeavor), so the site is temporarily up right now, but will not be for much longer.
The bad news: ozort.org will be unavailable until i find a new host
The good news: i managed to save all the files, and i'm providing a mirror of the site in the meantime.
if you cant connect to http://ozort.org
, i now have it partially Mirrored
. This location will not be updated, but does have a lot of the basic data stored there. you should be able to access links, email, and the mailto from there.
oh, and a special message to Kevin Fairbanks:

Land Of The Dead
Yo. First time poster, but have long time respect for this kind of community. Ever since playing Resident Evil 1 on the Gamecube, the undead have become a obsession and phobia for me. And the threat of zombie takeover strikes me as very possible, if only a little bit improbable.
So, speaking of zombie world domination, I recently saw a trailer for George Romero's Land Of The Dead
. And as far as zombie movies go, this one looks promising. They've gone beyond the cliche of a simple outbreak into the close handed future of an apoctalyptic world where humans live in walled cites with the constant fear of zombie on their front door. The only thing to be curious about is whether the outbreak is unexplained or has a corrupted virus behind it. I hope its the latter.
The release date is set for late June. Hopefully it will be as highly anticiapted as the trailers make it. Current Mood: impressed

After reading the comment that flamethrowers are illegal and hard to come by, I did some research.
As evidenced by the following .gif:
Flamethrowers can be built. In fact, at the SomethingAwful Forums, is the thread devoted to this thingy
Still not sure about the legal thing, though.

I had a dream about zombies the other night. I'm sure anyone who has put any serious thought into zombies has had dreams or nightmares about them at some point or another, so this would be a good place to share them.
Last night, I had a dream that me and 2 of my friends were having a great difficulty getting away from a rather small number of zombies. We were in a building that had a few wayward zombies lurking about, and we didn't have any weapons. I remember searching frantically for my quarter staff (blunt or not, i can ruin a few zombies pretty quick with a quarterstaff). I found several chunks of branches and whatnot, but nothing suitable. I finally got my hands on a pair of spears that were about 3 feet long each and very sharp on the tip. I was able to impale a zombie with them, but repeated attempts at stabbing through the skull were not working. The spear would glance off, and because of the length, it was a little too difficult to point and thrust properly.
I finally ended up pushing the zombie back and impaling it into the ground with the spear, which made it difficult for the zombie to get up, and was able to use the time to run to a vehicle and drive away.
the thing the dream made me realise is that to stab through the skull, you need to be able to score a DIRECT hit. which is a big "duh", but using a weapon thats more than about a foot long, it's going to be wobbly and hard to line the point up for a stab (imagine hitting a pool ball with a pool cue... very easy to push too hard and miss off to the side and just clip the ball... i do that every time i try to hit too hard).
As for weapons, focus on getting a weapon that is sharp, but short and handheld. 7 inches is plenty long enough. I never thought about using an ice pick, but that might be an ideal weapon. they're sharp as hell and really durable, and small and hand held, not to mention totally legal.
my 2 favorite weapons are now the hammer and the ice pick.
crowbars are great, but i've handled a few, and they're just too heavy, plus the long end is always curved, which probably makes it run a high chance of glancing off (as hard of a time as i have hitting a pool ball squarely, i have a harder time doing so with a crooked pool que).
i'm off to the hardware store to get an ice pick.

wow, i'm suprised I found this place. Honestly didn't think I would found others who felt the threat existed. its nice to be here.

im prepared hell yes
Dudes i have been prepared for weeks now, i have a spear and i will kill zombies, but i have a question if the solanum virus or t-virus or whatever is transmuted through fluids how would a bite do it, since the creature is dead that would mean salvia and perspiration would not be able to transmit a virus also if the creature is dead how can a zombie carry out the muscular action nesscasary to balance its self, if you are interested i have formed my own theory. The virus creates a kinda of air bladder an organ found in deep sea fish, in the brain this organ stores adreniline glucose and a form of alcohol metaboic fluid, when the frontal lobe collapses do to the heat exerted on the brain by the virus it squezzes the fluids into the blood stream as the blood stream goes stagnat the fluids are absorbed into to deep lying tissue and forces the muscular cells in the body to reform and function in a random fashion. As far as the virus transmution, my groups studies have shown that the virus seems to be more of a protozoan life form such as the malaria disease. we have come ot this conclusion by one seeing that the virus can exist with out oxygen which is a trait among many protozoa, second it can travel through a stagnant blood stream and finally the fact that the virus seems to collectivate into a larger system similar to that of algea, anyone with an ida of how this works post i want to know

Fear of Zombies
I don't know about everyone else, but i've always been afraid of zombies. From the first time i saw Night of the Living Dead when i was 9 years old, to my subsquent introduction to the chinese zombies (not much like american zombies, chinese zombies can fly, move very quickly, and are only stoppable by affixing a rune on their foreheads, sort of like the european golum). The fear of zombies seems to be an irrational one. Why fear something that's already dead?
The possible answers are numerous. Perhaps through years of evolution, our DNA has learned that the dead cause disease and can harm you, leading us to be afraid of corpses. Perhaps it's a simple tortise & hare complex, since regardless of how long we run, we eventually have to rest and sleep when a zombie doesn't. Maybe its the sheer audacity of the dead not being dead.
At any rate, if anyone wants to share their zombie fear stories, be it reasons they're afraid of zombies, or when their first exposure to zombies was, i'd like to hear it.

Order of Zombie Outbreak Resistance Tacticians
Despite it's often humerous, anecdotal, and largely inaccurate movie portrayel, the threat of a zombie outbreak is a very real danger. Zombies know no fear, no hesitation, and no pain. They recruit their members quickly through the transference of a rapidly spreading virus, not through extensive training. An effective soldier takes months of time, hours of training, and countless dollars to produce. A zombie takes only a matter of hours to produce, and can be created simply through a bite. When pitted against a rotting, stinking foe that moans incessantly and stumbles forward with vacant eyes, seemingly immune to ammunition fire, your typical soldier lacking combat experience will shake, panic, and freeze up. Zombies know no fear.
So how can we combat such a daunting foe. Thats where we come in. We are an order of highly trained zombie exectution specialists who travel the world investigating zombie outbreak incedents, hunt down wayward zombies, and ensure mankind's survival by informing the general public, or at least those wanting to learn more, how to protect themselves from this menace.
Now is the time to make the decision. Will you count yourself among those brave enough to make a stand against these horrid foes, or will you resign yourself to the mindless, relentless, soulless existence of the undead army?
If you would like to know more, keep checking back for updates, and visit our orders website at www.ozort.org . In the end, the only thing standing between your survival and a life of indentured servitude at the hands of the virus are your delicious brains.
