Zombie frogs

Tastes just like chicken.  Except I've never seen chicken dance around after it's dead.

Because, dontcha know, humans are the most powerful force in nature

I mean, there's nothing in nature, like, just tossing this one out there, the Yellowstone volcano that are capable of blowing and destroying pretty much all life in North American in a few minutes or anything.  Nope.  Only humans and our awful CO2 spewing ways that do that.

Oh, how delightful to discover that the volcano is larger than expected.  Because it wasn't like it was already going to send us all into the ZA once it blows or anything. 

Seriously, the determination by some portions of the Warmenistas to ignore natural formations such as this is enough to make one believe that they don't actually give a crap about or understand the natural environment at all.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go watch Woody stand there and watch Yellowstone explode because he wouldn't be incinerated instantly or anything.  Oh Emmerich, you do fill my life with joy.

Zombie movie, thy name is ambivalence

On the one hand, I'm excited that they're making a movie out of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.  On the other hand, Natalie Portman's vast outspoken stupidity has made it impossible for me to watch damn near anything she's in.

Via emzanotti's twitter feed.

Zombie Pigs

I for one, welcome our porcine zombie overlords...

A Pentagon study is using pigs to test a technique that would drastically slow a wounded soldier's metabolism in order to extend the "golden period" for life-saving medical treatment.

Wired reports:

The institute’s research will be based on previous Darpa-funded efforts. One project, at Stanford University, hypothesized that humans could one day mimic the hibernation abilities of squirrels — who emerge from winter months no worse for wear — using a pancreatic enzyme we have in common with the critters. The other, led by Dr. Mark Roth at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, used nematode worms and rats to test how hydrogen sulfide could block the body’s ability to use oxygen — creating a kind of “suspended animation” where hearts stop beating and wounds don’t bleed. After removing 60 percent of the rat’s blood, Dr. Roth managed to keep the critters alive for 10 hours using his hydrogen sulfide cocktail.

The next logical step: Try the same thing on pigs. They’ve got a similar cardiovascular system to humans, and TIPS researchers Theresa Fossum and Matthew Miller think they can accurately predict human results from the swine trials. Using anesthetized pigs, the doctors are testing various compounds, some containing hydrogen sulfide, to find one that can safely keep the hemorrhaging animals “as close to death as possible.”

You asked for it, you got it!!!!

Stoaty is proud to announce that the first round of ZOMBIE REAGAN!!! gear is available at her Zazzle store!!!

(Can you tell I'm excited?  I'm bouncing up and down in my chair like a little monkey while I'm typing this.)

Hopefully on its way - Zombie Reagan stamps.  Those have to go through an approval process, so we'll have an idea of which side of the aisle Zazzle falls on if they're rejected.  It's not like it's nude pictures of alexthechick, after all...

Update: Zazzle turned down the postage stamps, "Design incorporates the name or likeness of a current or former world leader or politician, or a local, regional, national or international leader, religious figurehead, or politician." which apparently was in their guidelines but Stoaty was hoping they'd get sloppy.  I don't see any Obama stamps, so at least they're consistent.

This is a pretty hilarious look at how different types of international relations theory would respond to the ZA.

My favorite part is this:

This would give states a great opportunity to cooperate on the issue by quickly fashioning a World Zombie Organization (WZO) that would codify and promnulgate rules on how to deal with zombies. Alas, the effectiveness of the WZO would be uncertain. If the zombies had standing and appealed any WZO decision to wipe them out, we could be talking about an 18-month window when zombies could run amok without any effective regulation whatsoever. Fortunately, the United States would likely respond by creating the North American F*** Zombies Agreement -- or NAFZA -- to handle the problem regionally.

I really really want a NAFZA shirt now.  Oh and the comments are fantastic as well.

Zombieland review

Go see it. Now.  It's only 81 minutes, but not a single one of those was boring, including the opening credits, which includes pasties.  Well, the post-end credits thingy was kinda lame, but you don't really have to hang around for that if you don't want to.  And the end credits were unexciting. 

I have a new crush on Woody Harrelson.  I'm sure I wouldn't be able to stand him in real life.  And I don't normally find blond men attractive.  But the dude knows how to swing a baseball bat.

More than that, I'm getting into spoilerland.  Just go see it now.  I saw a matinee, it would have been worth full price.

Oooh!

Still thinking one of the new characters is modeled after a particular commenter over at the Head Moron's, but the commenter is prettier.  From EvilAvatar.

Is anyone else wondering if you can use the chainsaw and the machete at the same time?!  How awesome would that be?!

Zombie Storm Troopers?




When the Imperial prison barge Purge–temporary home to five hundred of the galaxy’s most ruthless killers, rebels, scoundrels, and thieves–breaks down in a distant, uninhabited part of space, its only hope appears to lie with a Star Destroyer found drifting, derelict, and seemingly abandoned. But when a boarding party from the Purge is sent to scavenge for parts, only half of them come back–bringing with them a horrific disease so lethal that within hours nearly all aboard the Purge die in ways too hideous to imagine.

And death is only the beginning.

The Purge’s half-dozen survivors–two teenage brothers, a sadistic captain of the guards, a couple of rogue smugglers, and the chief medical officer, the lone woman on board–will do whatever it takes to stay alive. But nothing can prepare them for what lies waiting aboard the Star Destroyer amid its vast creaking emptiness that isn’t really empty at all. For the dead are rising: soulless, unstoppable, and unspeakably hungry.

The University of Florida is prepared

Or at least trying to get there.   Kudos on addressing campus-specific issues.

Put yer nerd goggles on

It's early enough in the morning, I'm betting very few of you are too drunk to understand this, unless you're still recovering from last night.

The survival probability of immobile targets annihilated by a population of random walkers on inhomogeneous discrete structures, such as disordered solids, glasses, fractals, polymer networks, and gels, is analytically investigated. It is shown that, while it cannot in general be related to the number of distinct visited points as in the case of homogeneous lattices, in the case of bounded coordination numbers its asymptotic behavior at large times can still be expressed in terms of the spectral dimension d-tilde and its exact analytical expression is given. The results show that the asymptotic survival probability is site-independent of recurrent structures (d-tilde <=2), while on transient structures (d-tilde >2) it can strongly depend on the target position, and such dependence is explicitly calculated.
If you are too drunk, here's a simpler explanation.

Why, yes!

They do have zombie clowns!

Below the fold to protect alexthechick's delicate eyes.

Update: You may not like clowns, but how do you feel about Teletubbies?  Unfortunately, only for PC.
