    Zombie Threads: The Reckoning

    Welcome to my zombie thread. I considered posting in A&S, if only to be near the helmet thread (polls still open, exercise your right to vote), but brain buckets offer minimal protection from the ravenous undead. I was prompted to post this after the recent resurrection of Pet Sematary Peeves.

    Zombie goodness list
    They can make you laugh.
    They can still make you think. Mmm, brains.
    They can still teach you things. This one is teaching me Morse code.
    Basically, if you have something helpful, interesting or entertaining to add, you can compound their value long after the OP has turned to dust.
    They can give you a better appreciation for ancient history (however you define that on the internet).
    The BikeForums morgue is your oyster!

    The downsides I can see are when very specific or personal threads have definitely run their course; and the unedifying spectacle of pulling a dead horse out of the grave to beat it some more. But I think those would be in the minority and less attractive for exhumation anyway.

    Now that you've heard my opinion, I'd like to hear yours.

    Warning: ZOMBIE THREAD

    I like it when someone resuscitates a thread to respond to an OP who hasn't been here (BF) for years.

    Moved from General Cycling to Foo, since Foo knows zombies.

    Most zombies don't smell at all fresh.

    Isn't a fresh zombie an oxymoron?

    Zombie news: Morgan Freeman investigates the possibility of a zombie apocalypse.



    If you can trust anybody on an issue as important as this, it's the man who played a much cooler God than George Burns (who was better cast as the devil - though this guy is hard to beat).


    God is so cool He made Gilligan and put him on a desert island to have wacky adventures with a couple of Eves who verily could not tempt him. Truly His ways are mysterious.

    You might also remember Morgan from such films as Se7en, where he played a hard-bitten detective who knew there was a surprise in that box,



    and Driving Miss unDeadly
