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

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Destroy the brain, thats all you need to know.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    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?
    - Solo Attack: When you attack, let the sprint group lead you out. You take no points. But when they sit up, you put your head down and hold threshold. Remember: When you see Jesus you are still about 2 minutes from blacking out. Hang on.

    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.
    1997 Jamis Aragon (converted to touring bike), two white 1974 Gazelle-built Raleigh Grands Prix, two red 1973 Gazelle-built Raleigh Grands Prix.

    All I need is a bike and a road, and to be left with the same freedom any other road user has to decide what's the safest lane position.

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