skinink: I've read the book. But obviously you haven't seen the movie previews, have you smartass? In one scene the zombies literally flow up a wall that is hundreds of feet high, and they flow up like water.. I'm specifically talking about how they move in the film previews, not the book.


That happens in the book too. See the battle description near the end of the book where they are forced to form a Singh Square, and then have a bulldozer push them out of the walls of bodies. The habit of zombies crawling over their dead to climb over fortifications and walls is described not only in World War Z, but also in the Zombie Survival Guide.

Madman drummers bummers: 1. Hack the station's server. (Don't get caught.)
2. Offer your skills to the station as a "security consultant."
3. Job security - PROFIT!


See, the fun part about what the FCC wants TV stations to do is participate in the new Enhanced EAS that talks to a central server and can include additional information such as images, or sound and video clips, to enhance the capabilities of the EAS. For things like child abductions, weather events, evacuations, etc that standard EAS just gives generic codes for.

One of the things we've always worried about is how *secure* these servers are, especially for EAS systems that are designed to be fired off *without operator intervention*. The idea is, it gets on the air faster and more reliably if master control operators don't have to punch the buttons, or decide if the info is legitimate (nuclear attack?) but that a local or regional Emergency Management authority can just drop this info onto the air to local stations *immediately*.

Works out real well if you hack their stuff, wouldn't it?

\probably done by a station employee
\\but could have been done otherwise, if we all Join with the Emergency Management Collective

Came for Anthrax reference leaving happy to go kick some Grammy bootie for screwing them out of a trophy.  Worship music is the Best metal album since The System has Failed.  IMHO.  Finally got to see them live after 25 years.

I'm more concerned with Cthulhu than zombies. I have one of his plushie children I am holding hostage for bargaining purposes. I let it sleep on my bed so it will put in a good word for me with dear ol' dad.

eggrolls: "Zack ain't in no hurry. Why are you?"


The audiobook version makes that so much more awesome, because it's a line said by none other than Luke farking Skywalker himself.

BronyMedic: skinink: But are they the running zombies or the slow shambling ones? And the ones from Brad Pitt's WWZ do not count. Zombies do not swarm like locusts.

You didn't really read the book, did you.

One zed makes a moan. Another zed a mile away hears it and moans. Soon you have a full on horde converging on you.

I find the idea of this amusing, but it only takes one or two in the audience that's already close to a mental break to freak out and grab a shotgun... Emergency broadcast/notification interference is one thing I can't condone messing with. Kind of like calling in a bomb threat to distract from a bank robbery (happened locally a couple of weeks ago).

During the Steve Wilkos show?   I am guessing 80% of the audience actually believed it.
