You'd probably appreciate Rural Dead by Bret Hammond. It's in the style of a World War Z-type interview.

Was Atlanta ground zero for the infection? Something at the CDC itself? If it was still contained and they really had wanted to destroy it in its early stages, “nuke it from space; it’s the only way to be sure."
Atlanta was a refugee center. It turns out shoving tens of thousands of displaced people together like sardines in a can may not have been such a great plan.

Also nukes are only really good at killing living people. Outside the relatively small area of incineration you'd have the awesome new threat of radioactive zombies.

Here's another question. Why doesn't the zombie virus also affect the animals?
Why does the bird flu mostly only infect birds?

Presactly. Though I would guess that chimps or certain other primates might be affected if one were to check out a lab or zoo due to the amount of DNA we share with them.

Good point. It seems as though the authorities are powerless to stop the spread of the infection.

Ugh. Did Darryl actually snack on a zombie? That's so awesome (you want redneck roadkill, this is redneck roadkill!) that I'll overlook the illogic that you can eat zombie flesh and not get infected.

And this is why we don't give guns to women. Now go finish that laundry, Andrea.
Gotta admit at that range it was a hell of a shot.
Andrea's got talent, that's for sure. Not her fault that Darryl decided to snack on a zombie. How did he explain all the blood around his mouth or maybe everyone figured, "I'd rather not know..."

Temis, you and I must have seen a different episode, because I thought that was a squirrel, or some other critter, that he'd bagged after skewering it with an arrow. Or was that a different part that I missed?

Oh okay, I do remember the squirrel, maybe that was just wishful thinking because it would have been grossly fun. Didn't Darryl say, "that guy had the right idea"? I thought he meant the right idea was cannibalism, and he turned the tables on the zombie.

This show needs to learn how to write its women better.
Definitely been a problem, but at least Andrea is showing some signs of becoming a more interesting character.

Daryl did go hard core with the ears, though. Maybe that was because of his delirium.

It was the ears that made me wonder what he'd been eating.

Best line in last night's show IMO. Andrea, " I cannot believe I shot Daryl." Dale, " I think you're being to hard on yourself, everyone has wanted to shoot Daryl one time or another."

I think Darryl meant Merle had the right idea about his wound being easier to bind once the arrow was out, that's how I understood it anyway,

This episode wasn't on On Demand yet this morning, so I didn't get to see it yet. Still no Sophia, I guess. Did we find out who was living in that house?

I obviously need psychiatric help.

By "that house," do you mean the whole farm property? Yes, yes we do.

No, I mean the house that Daryl found, where somebody was living in the closet-- maybe Sophia, or maybe not.
