Why the zombie apocalypse would be good for me

Getting out the house. Finally getting some exercise. Spending time with lots of like-minded people. Eating out.

I would do well as a zombie.

People say exercise is good for mental health. I wouldn't know. Maybe I should try it some day. I'm not even playing my DS much these days, so even my thumbs are out of shape. When you're noticing your thumbs have love handles, maybe it's time to do something about it.

Maybe. But probably not.

Ah, who am I kidding? I'd never be a zombie. There are very few things in life I'm good at. Very few things I know about. But surviving a zombie apocalypse? I've done the research. I've got it all worked out. The only essential survival tactic I don't have ready is locating and flying a helicopter. I'm uncomfortable enough in a car and have a long way to go before I reach helicopter.

But everything else I've got covered.

You should buy a Wii in order to have some exercise.

You could even play "Dead Rising: Chop 'til you Drop". Best of both worlds, and good practice for the things to come ;-)

I bought that game for the Xbox, but I got too frustrated. There were just too many god-damned zombies! And the boss battles were a real bitch; they didn't have a partial save, so if you died in the middle of the battle, the game returned you to your last save... and you can only save by taking a leak in the bathroom! The sandbox style was fun though.

If Homer Simpson could be a Zombie (he ate Flander's brain) and Charlton Heston could fight them....

No doubt you could be a Zombie. i just don't think a Zombie would be caught dead (pardon the pun) drinking a drink with an umbrella. Well, maybe a girl Zombie. But not a boy Zombie.

As for the Wii-just write to Santa for one. I am sure he can find your place and drop one off under the tree

Bitter, you have GOT to see this video!:

Isn't this amazing?? Had you heard of this Rhonda program? I sure hadn't.

Can you imagine if you could create animations with a software like this? Is this perhaps the "missing link" that can bridge the gap between CGI and 2D hand-drawn animation?

I hadn't seen that. It looks amazing. I imagine it takes a long time to get to grips with it - like a different way of thinking. I'd love to have a go.

I loved Dead Rising. So many zombies!
