Zombies 101

For those of you worried about future zombie outbreaks this might help. Who says learning can't be fun?

Suspension of disbelief aside...
Zombies supposedly live forever if the brain is intact. But, to make the body move, they have to expend energy. My schooling in physics says you cannot expend energy without taking it in. (It's called starving to death!)
Sunlight usually is either of no consequence, lethal, or just irritating to the zombie; so that's not it. Maybe electro-magnetism?

Zombies derive their energy from tapping into all the wasted energy that we the living put into zombie threads on the internet. Just know that we are all pawns in their game.

Yeah I hear you - the zombie threads can get tiresome (not to mention strengthens the zombies). But a University having a lit class on zombies? That's pretty amusing to me anyway.

Does a university in Baltimore count? How is their football team ranked?

In a zombie apocalypse, I'm convinced that the zombies will all just get in their cars and drive. After all, isn't the zombie genre just a critique of unthinking consumerism? What's more unthinkingly consumerist than driving a gas guzzler?

After a zombie apocalypse, cyclists will inherit the Earth.

Nope. They've got a good law school though - Probably not a coincidence with the interest in zombies now that I think of it.
