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

First off, I don't know how much faith I put in spears, but your defense is your concern.
I assume, since you are conducting good research, that you can handle yourself, so I won't
lecture you here. Your theory is "testable" insofar as that when you displace the head, you
remove the threat -- good, good. However, a virus needs a living host to replicate. Now,
the zombie MAY be alive and this is a retrovirus that knocks out the immune system -- hence
the putrefaction. This, I doubt. We may have more or less the same scenario you describe,
but with a bacterial agent, acting with a hive mentality. Here's my speculation: this thing is
fungal. Fungi can go anaerobic under the right conditions. A fungus can also navigate a
stagnant bloodstream. Finally, fungi always work collectively -- no cell walls, many freely
swimming nuclei. This hypothesis is "confirmed" by a few facts, as was yours. First off, I
could see that the fungi could nourish itself by the decomposition of the body. Filling the
gullet of the corpse with flesh just prolongs the putrefaction which has been powering the fungus.
This explains the hunger. Perhaps your mechanism of reanimation is the right one, though.

Do you need us to come pick you up?
How many of us are still on LJ?
Should I get back on?
