    Obviously, may this guy rest in peace, but I'm all zombied out...............too much of entertainment/pop culture revolves around zombie talk. It needs to go away.

    Would you rather have more sparkly vampires Armen?

    I've heard a lot of people saying exactly that...that they're "zombied out" and sick of the resurgence of the zombie genre in the last decade, but c'mon...the whole post-apocalyptic feel of lawlessness, survival, and interestingly enough...freedom, that permeates a lot of the zombie movies of late is really compelling. It's like it's everyone's fantasy to survive the zombie apocalypse and blow their heads off like a video game hero. It's fun.

    No one fantasizes about being an immortal fruit pie.

    It does look like fun. I mean, who wouldn't enjoy a chance to rebuild society (as you see fit) while mowing down zombies?

    I'm sorry, I just don't have that fantasy to mow down zombies.

    What about rebuilding society based on your own ideals? No interest in that? You would have a better shot at getting neck beards to catch on.

    My fantasies on that subject involve a world without crappy zombies or ridiculous creatures running about. It would be just a lot less humans and a lot less land.

    Is it safe to say that Wal-Mart would no longer be an issue in your post apocalyptic scenario?

    Of course. The building's that weren't destroyed would be converted to alcohol warehouses, cigar lounges, and prostitution centers.
