OK, well in English class we are supposed to tackle an issue that is important to us and mold it into an essay. So, naturally, I decided to write an essay on zombies. Its in its very rough beginning stages and most of the detail must be cut out since it is only supposed to be a few pages long. Here is the skeleton of the work. Tell me what you think. I got a review from one of the other students in my class, who suggested that I list some "other skilled zombie hunters like Will Smith". You could imagine my expression. ANYWAYS... here it is:
What are zombies you ask? Well, the simple explaination
would be to state they are the re-animated bodies of the deceased,
most of whom have some sort of hunger for human flesh but not that of
other undead. These vicious creatures are completely unbiased - they
eat anyone and everyone. Apart from the initial pain and eventual
death from being continuously chomped on, a simple bit or scratch will
be sufficient to turn your own persons into a zombie. Whether this be
explained as a scientific viral type thing or left as mystery, tv end
result is the same: you will pass and turn into the living undead.
For the most part, zombies are easy to identify. They are
characterized by the same decaying grey flesh, milky eyes and stiff
motion (no doubt due to the rigor mortis). Because zombies are
deceased, they feel no pain and therefore can sustain injuries.
These injuries can be severe and display clearly - a missing limb, a
jawless face or a ripped out ribcage. In addition to the strain of
motion after , there is natural issue decay. Luckily, this brings
us to our first point.
Zombies are slow. For the most part, they shuffle rather slowly and if
in an open area with only one other undead it is easy to stay ahead
and avoid any . This could also apply to a group of undead.
However, in tight spaces, such as a house or enclosed builings, it
will be far more difficult to avoid injury. Zombies have a tendency to
be fairly quiet, with the occasional gutteral moan, until they attack.
Many zombies employ the technique of lunging open mouthed at the
victim; a method that proves effective time and time again. The best
chance is when running, do it in the open, away from various
the undead can pop out from. When a secure location is found, it is
best to baraxade oneself inside and be armed. This of course brings us
to the next point.
Zombies can be killed. Again. Its a fairly simple concept. Just like
humans, zombies need their brains to function (small electircal
impulses are still generatedafger and all). The best way to rid
of a zombie would be to destroy the brain or remove it from the est of
the body. Severing the top of the spinal column or massive trauma to
the brain are key. Hits to the rest of the body will slow it down, but
ultimately, have no effect. In these situations there will always be a
fool who attempts to shoot a zombie in the chest, hoping it will go
down. However, the only certain method of these creatures is
the afore mentioned method. The tools themselves do not matter, though
some are more helpful than others.
