View Full Version : Zombies and Brains

Okay, this is going to be a bit of a rant--

So, there's all this zombie stuff with 'BRAAAIINSS!!!' on it, and quite a few zombies who groan 'brains' in haunts, zombiewalks, and all kinds of places, Right?

Well, zombies don't eat brains. Not intentionally. Not deliberately.

Ever try to bite through a skull? You can't. You're not built to. Even with all the negative response pain receptors in your muscles gon(which would allow you to use your muscles at their peak) your jaws just don't have that kind of strength. Okay?

But there's more. How do you kill a zombie? Destroy the brain, right? That's the classic method. Everyone uses it--even the idiotic movie series that started all the brain nonsense. But that aside for the moment, if zombies went for brains then the zombie plague would end pretty quickly, no?

Zombie re-animates, shuffles to victim, eats brain......so no new zombie. End of 'plague'.

Return of the Living Dead gave us this brain thing--and, in the first movie, it worked, because brain or no, those zombies kept moving--any flesh did after exposure to tri-Ox. But then, as the series went on, sometimes the head shot thing worked....and sometimes it didn't.

But you've still got the jaw strength thing to limit zombies eating brains.

So zombies don't eat brains.

There, I got that off my chest. What do you think?
