Always nod your head to the crows you see, and they will nod back... these are not your foes.

Plant Rights Activist: I always figured that in a zombie apocalypse the thing to worry about most would be zombified little things like rats and birds.


If there are zombie mosquitoes, we are so totally farked.

Prions actually can stand up to your standard incineration as well. So by subby's logic we need to avoid brain-eating dragons as well.

Hush you; it's infinitely preferable to the Vampire (sparkly or sultry southern) crap we had to hear about before the ZA took over.

I know somebody, but he's a former bell-ringer. Is he over-qualified?

way south: /22 will do crows, but it just won't cut it for zombies.


Several zombie books disagree. They all pretty much say that a headshot with a .22 is a great way to destroy a brain because the bullet has enough power to enter the skull but not exit, so it just bounces around inside while it expends its energy. And since .22 LR ammunition is both very common and relatively light weight, it is rather ideal for any zombie survival kit.

That's what they say, anyway.

When the half-feral cat that guards my house ended up with a terrible infected wound in his paw, the vet said he'd gone head-to-head with a crow (well, beak-to-paw), because when he cultured the damn thing it was more about what it didn't have growing on it than what it did.

/Three surgeries, but the second two were on the vet's dime.
