    3 times today i heard men talking about having a weapon under their bed "for the zombies" or how "you have to be prepared for the zombie apocolypse" What is up with that?

      Maybe it is code for "the Mother in Law is coming to stay" ?

      Talking zombie contingency plans is really fun, I do it with my friends all the time.

      They were probably just joking about the guns being under their beds for zombies though.

      I dunno but I had a friend who use to dream about zombies so we made a plan that if the zombies came we would have a sail boat set up and a head quarters for all the survivors with food and beer and then we would just sail until they all lived out their un-dead lives.

      It's that or it's some sort of metaphor for fearing woman on their periods. lol To quote my bf, "How can you trust something that bleeds for a week but doesn't die?" lololol

    I don't think I know anyone who worries about Zombies; however, did people see the MSN article today about the car load of Zombies that got in an accident? (It was people dressed up like Zombies and headed for a party.  Nobody was seriously hurt.  smile  )

    Are these guys Christian Goths? The dead shall rise and I don't expect to be caught up in the rapture - Hopefully - the zombies will be 1950's style - real slow and stupid like 'Shawn of the Dead" instead of those really fast ones on some horror flicks.

      Actually, guys online mention it all the time, on my facebook, to each other...and my brother is seriously convinced that its going to happen.

        I don't think they seriously believe it's going to happen. It's a silly guy thing, like, having a celebrity list. You know, like the ten celebrities you get to sleep with and your partner can't get mad. Nobody's actually going to sleep with anybody on their list.

        Same with the zombies. We know they're never going to be real. It's just a fun hypothetical thing to talk about, and it lets us avoid actual meaningful conversation in a more creative way than quoting Monty Python.

    Uhhh...at the risk of embarassing myself, i'm one of those guys:-)

    I've been obsessed with the whole zombie thing for as long as I can remember. It starts with a good zombie movie - which is always in the survival horror genre. Movies like these beg the question "what would you do?" in the event of the movie's premise.

    Inevitably, guys tend to like these movies. Get enough guys together in the one spot and they'll all compare their answers to this question.

    From there it "goes viral" (pun not intended, though appreciated) throughout the internet, into increasing levels of absurdity. 

    It's not that anyone actually believes a zombie apocalypse will actually happen - just that we secretly hope it will.

    To generalise...

    Girls grow up planning thier ideal wedding. Dreaming of the day prince charming arrives to sweep them off their feet.

    Boys grow up planning thier ideal escape. Dreaming of the day the dead rise from the ground to consume the living, and what they'll do when it happens.

    It's a little bit modern film culture, and a little bit gender differences. Though I have several female friends who are as fascinated with the whole scenario too.

    Nothing so mysterious, just a bit of fun;-)

        I think a zombie walk sounds scary. I mean, even if they are just people dressed up as zombies, i think id be hiding in me kitchen under a table or something! My husband has zombie protection in our bedroom, and even has that zombie survival book.

    I think it's just a fad thing to do.

    Kind of like a popular conversation thing. It's not like they are serious, it's just a way to be stupid and have fun.

    zombies - perhaps the fear is cuz the undead so often have those perfect pointy teeth?  I know that scares me!  also they never wash, never wipe off the blood!
