The website for the course says you will not be given a final grade, so...I guess not.

While the geography portion is weak the "how to make cars run forever when there's no gas" and "how to go from not knowing what end the bullet comes out to being able to make perfect headshots from moving vehicles over broken terrain in one week" would be useful.

As one of "those" zombie geeks, the "brains" thing STILL bugs me after all these years!

So it's another non-credit course on which students can spend more of their parents' hard-earned savings?

Good.

Describe how infectious diseases-like a zombie epidemic-spread and are managed

They're not managed. If they were, there would be no zombie apocalypse.

Don't be black if you want to survive. They seem doomed as a race on the Walking Dead

Or Latino, there's no argument there, you get your head turned into a chopping block with no room for discussion.

Latinos have better luck then black people. If you was referring to the prisoner he needed to die.

It's free. Universities sometimes offer non-credit courses for the community at large. Film at 11.

You're fine so long as you're the only one. As soon as you see another, you need to settle your affairs.

fark UC Irvine so goddam much. It's bad enough that they waste students' time by basically treating them like cattle, always leading them along with career opportunities when in reality it's the same old bullshiat. Now they're offering classes on specific television shows? I hope they shut down the entire farking campus.

Another graduate of the American school system chimes in. Tell us Einstein, how many dollars in a "Free"?

Your teachers deserved a raise, right? /sarcasm

Where do the original "Voo-doo" zombies fit in to this apparently exacting Zombie lore?

I thought the "Where's Carl?" jokes ended with season 2. Apparently not.

The word 'zombie' comes from old Haitian voodoo legend. A movie called 'White Zombie' came out in the 30's, familiarizing the word with the image of a mindless, wandering lobotomite. In the late 60's, George Romero tried to make a low budget adaptation of 'I Am Legend' but could not secure the necessary copyright. So he changed some aspects of the story, and the modern zombie was born.

There is more to the story and I may have missed a few bits of trivia, but that is a simplified answer to your question.
