Important Message to All Methobloggers:

Please, whatever you do, nobody tell John about this.
I don't want to be responsible for getting him riled up.

Zombies are, thankfully, very stupid. But the speaker's claim that one needs 75 million zombies to kill one human is even stupider. Yes, all you have to do is shoot them in the head. But that's a really hard shot to make. What do you do if you don't have a gun? I keep a baseball bat next to the living room couch for just such occasions, so I could probably kill one zombie. Maybe a few if they all waited in line to attack me. But that's not real life, folks. Zombies don't take turns attacking you -- they just all come at once.

Why do people ignore the zombie threat? Sure, in theory, they seem harmless. Whack'em with the bat, and and they fall over. Whack'em until their skulls pop, and they're dead. But if a zombie gets a single bite on you, you're dead -- and a threat to everyone around you.

What are you going to do if a zombie bites your wife, she dies, and then comes back as a zombie. Are you going to have the cojoles to kill her? Because that's what you're going to have to do if you're going to survive.

People confuse real life and action movies. Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenneger make it look easy -- just calmly butcher the enemy. But in the stress of combat against a supernatural horror with no real plan for escape, most people will crumble in shock, sink to the floor, and let the zombies devour them.

And because most people won't take the threat seriously and will be turned, then the zombie threat will get even larger.

This kind of stupidity is worse than that of the zombies themselves. Zombies, at least, know how to kill.
