Pretty sure it knocked out the rear driveshaft too. The rear wheels weren't helping it get out of the hole.

I think I'll just pack an amplifier and some Justin Bieber CDs. I figure the zombies will simply kill themselves to stop the pain.

"Any outdoorsman will tell you the most frustrating part of hunting is when a deer simply FALLS DOWN when shot, and doesn't FLY BACKWARD into the forest."
In a movie, you can reasonably expect a gun to be able to do anything, . . . as here, throwing a normal-sized human clean across a room with a single shot. Preferably through a Sheet of Glass while it's at it.

Boxer's fist vs a Bullet?
there are massive mechanical differences between the types of collision. A bullet is a streamlined, hard object which focuses a large amount of kinetic energy onto a small area, but has relatively little momentum due to its small size in comparison to a human, meaning it has little ability to drive an object back. A boxer's fist, on the other hand, has far more momentum and a much broader contact area. The much higher pressure will cause the bullet to impart massive stress to a tiny area, causing it to penetrate rather than shove backwards; conversely, you are unlikely to see a boxer put his fist through his opponent's torso because of the very low pressure caused by the large contact area. High-powered rifles just make the bullet still more likely to go through the target rather than be stopped and have to shove it back.[

That would tend to be somewhat impressive: Just how can a member of the Walking Dead be killed? Could one (for instance) walk into a mortuary and proceed to "kill" the corpses stored there?

I agree shot placement is going to be the biggest factor but lets face it...in a Zombie attack you probably don't have a lot of time to aim carefully.

How to Survive a Zombie Attack

(Lets just stick to Zombie types 3 & 4)
Quote:
The Types of Zombies

  1. Haitian Voodoo Zombies: These animated corpses are the most harmless type of zombies, since they don't generally try to eat the living. Controlled by a voodoo master, they may try to kill you if that is what their master wants.6
  2. The Philosophical Zombie: These are every day people who have no sense of self or existence. They simply go through the motions of living and stop there.11 This breed many not want to eat your brains, but their thoughtlessness alone could be fatal.
  3. Hollywood Zombie: Your most typical form of zombie, they move slowly and love to feast on brains.11
  4. New School Hollywood Zombie: Unlike their predecessors, the new school Hollywood breed of zombie move quickly and climb buildings almost as well as Spider-Man.4



Fighting Zombies

Its generally a consensus that immobilizing a zombie (letting it walk into quick-setting cement, for example) goes a long way. But to permanently incapacitate a type 3 & 4 zombie one has to fully dismantle it, burn it up, decapitate it - or at least remove some 98% of its brain.

Many gun owners fall into the 'pride of gun-ownership' trap of believing their weapons are the best response to any threat of harm from any normal walking menace. A member of the Walking Dead is not a normal walking menace. Even Shaun's favored weapon- a cricket bat, used to 'knock a zombie's block off... is more effective.

Just hitting it in the torso with most types of handgun & rifle bullets does nothing in the long run.

You need to start your own thread . . . . something like "I like guns" but steer clear from posting, and verbalizing your key-strokes in places such as Transport Terminals and Airports.

I judge this thread to be in a different league than the ones' on "Whatever happened to white dog shit?"

But maybe YOU have mistaken this Zombie Apocalypse thread for that one on
General Bullshit

What's good is an integrated approach. Get something like the 'Scoops' from Soylent Green, and make rapid deliveries . .

But you're going step up your efficiency with a mobile solution in-one-step like . . .

Did they try to hit a pile of blocks with that plow? Or did it just happen to be in the picture... I dont think it would go through it...but I would like to see them try!

Looks to me like the driver is using concrete blocks to "park" the mechanism just clear of the ground. As he's chocked one of the wheels. Maybe the plow assembly where chipped paint exposes bare metal, if left flat on the dirt, is subject to the effects of corrosion which may be exacerbated when rock salt is used on snowed-over roads?

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .



Look's like there is railway (railroad) equipment that can be put into use when zombie hordes are blocking the tracks?

Or it had been plowing snow then it came upon the buried cinderblocks and they left the machine where it died?
