7 Scientific Reasons a Zombie Outbreak Would Fail (Quickly)

Let’s pretend for a moment that zombies are real (as if half of you weren’t already daydreaming about that very thing). Have you noticed how most zombie movies take place only after the apocalypse is in full-swing? By the time we join our survivors, the military and government are already wiped out, and none of the streets are safe.

There’s a reason the movie starts there, and not earlier. It’s because the early part, where we go from one zombie to millions, doesn’t make any sense. If you let the creeping buzzkill of logic into the zombie party, you realize the zombies would all be re-dead long before you even got a chance to fire up that chainsaw motorcycle you’ve been working on. Why?

    • David,

      I agree, it wasn’t my intention to copy and paste the entire article, I just thought it was a great read and wanted to share it and I always post the link to the exact page. Since the time of this posting back in August of last year, I have been trying to take my blog in a different direction and not just copy and paste entire articles; but talk about them and explain them more and simply give a taste of the article as opposed to the entire thing. It is always a problem with time constraints. I’m doing this by myself, and I work and have a wife and house and pets. No excuse, but I highly appreciate the message, I’m a huge fan of Cracked, I read it almost daily when time permits after (or during) work. Also, I think when I get a chance (either today or later tonight) I will go and remove the entire article and just post the link with the opening paragraph.

      Thanks for the message and for keeping me entertained.

      –Marcos Cosme
