"Why Zombies?"

Andy Fletcher writes:


Well firstly, the Zombie narrative has been around for just over 200 years... My perspective is that a 'zombie' or 'zombi' as originally written is the re-animation or revival of a corpse. 


Do I think there are zombies roaming around somewhere in the world? No.


Do I think there could ever be zombies? Well, given the events of the last few years, whereby a pathogen of unknown source could catastrophize the entire planet; I think anything is possible, especially when there are existing examples of zombification in the insect kingdom (most predominantly highlighted in the videogame-turned-television series "The Last of Us").

And if events ever unfolded into such a nightmare scenario, would you want to be lost to history due to a lack of training, or would you want to be a survivor? I know (and I think you'd accurately guess) which camp I'd rather be in!

I guess my question back to you is "Do you want to be a survivor too?"
