The closest things there will ever be to real zombies are those parasites that infect those ants in the rain forset. Those spores are so much more terrifying than any ficitional creature.

i cant see the big deal with the zombie Apocalypse, zombies are slow moving and they even fall apart after some time, and they die of they are shot in the head, and the only weapon they have is their bite, witch transforms the victim into a zombie.

but you forgot about the zombie snail:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWB_COSUXMw

The real truth is people actually avidly want a zombie apocalypse. It gives them an excuse to do ridiculous crap without the legal trouble, blow up and shoot zombies because they're no longer considered "innocent people," and in general, act like morons as they try to grab what they can, when they can.

And yeah, looks like this is relevant too.

5 Reasons You Secretly Want a Zombie Apocalypse

I love this site.

My roommate use to reference that site all the time..lol I have to agree with Neo. The major problem is they just want the action half of it. No one wants the huddled together starving in terror half of the story. No one wants the having to kill your mother, father or gf/bf end of it.

In October, I was an actor in a haunted house (I was a zombie), and honestly, people wouldn't be able to survive if they acted like they did in the house.
I'd stalk people, shriek, and pretend to eat my fellow actors. I made grown men cry (I found it so funny).
People honestly wouldn't be able to stay sane in a zombie apocalypse; it's too much pressure on people to kill their loved ones. (Going back on what NE and JD said)

I don't know why everyone wants a zombie outbreak......

Most people that think they'd survive and kill zombies would end up being the first to go. lolol

Zombies seem unlikely, but remember how zombies happen: a virus.

Something like a flu could be much worse than a zombie outbreak.

I find those terrifying XD

People always want to feel like they're important, that they're better than anything that life can throw at them. I think this is one of the reasons why so many want a zombie apocalypse, because they see zombies as slow, shuffling creatures that although scary, are easy to take out. These people are the kind of people who have never been in such a situation (who has?) and thinks they'll be the bravest thing ever, when if it were to actually happen that 'courage' would desert them and they'd be easy pickings. Honestly, no one could get through such a thing as the zombie apocalypse unscathed, emotionally and physically. You would have to kill friends, family, innocent people. You would watch your best friends die as they were devoured, and you would have an overwhelming sense of fear about whats behind the corner.
