Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Himuradono
Review:
Lulzy alright, I think Walking Dead proves that humanity fails as a species. I mean come on, we go from the top of the food chain, the most dangerous, craziest, most murderous species on the plant to zombie chow in a manner of weeks.

That's why I always preferred '28 Days Later' kind of plague (the super rabies) than the shambling zombies who east whole cities.

Loved your one-shot.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Annadel
Review:
Now that you mention it, the fact Walking Dead doesn't have all it's zombies shambling around on all fours given their explaination of the virus at the end of season one is shoddy research. According to cannon, only the brainstem and "reptile" brain gets lit back up. It's all just pure animal instinct.

They didn't do enough research to figure out it's the cerebellum that gives us the balance necessary to walk on two legs, specialized pelvic bones or not. It's extremely rare, but there is a "throwback" genetic disorder that causes a person to be born without a cerebellum or one that is majorly stunted. They all move using all four limbs to balance. Some, usually those with stunted cerebellums can be taught to walk upright very slowly some of the time, but it's a painstaking process.

I'm pretty sure it's not the mass of the cerebellum itself that gives us the balance to walk upright. So, if that bit of the brain is dead, so are all the skills it aided in. Good catch, and thanks for the laughs.

I think the idea of zombies is really weak, so I love this

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Difdi
Review:
Heh, I remember reading that Randy Johnson's home defense weapon of choice is a bucket of baseballs. I imagine he'd come through a zombie apocalypse just fine...

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Sandi
Review:
I love the way your mind works. This is perfect. I hadn't thought of balance issues but you are right, they should have problems.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Omegaprime
Review:
Well that is an interesting way to deal with a zombie apocalypse.

I would've never imagined that a zombie would have horrible balance issues.

And the granny video was very funny idea.

Keep up the good work.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Recent Donor)DaveTurner
Review:
Interesting idea, I think you got something there. Great! Zombie menace dealt with.

To 'Skip', I saw that episode and thought exactly the same thing. BTW, if you look carefully it was an old Chieftain tank made to look like an M1.

Good little story,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from CPTSkip
Review:
Lol! Your delightful story certainly took a lot of the horror out of the zombie genre.

I was always bothered by the episode of Walking Dead when the deputy first got to Atlanta and ended up in the M1 tank. Why didn't he just stay in the tank and drive around running over the zombies until all the zombies are strawberry jam? Refueling might be a bit of a hassle, but I can think of a bunch of ways it could safely be done. Oh well. According to World War Z, panicking Humans aren't that much smarter than zombies.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from ShalaDakiri
Review:
Not a fan of zombies, but that was really funny. That Granny Walker video sounds like something someone would upload and the idea of knocking one over with a ping pong ball was great.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Aenea
Review:
And just as in DnD a ten foot collapsible pole becomes standard equipment when leaving the house. Keys, wallet, cellphone, pole.
