When the fuck did he say any of that? Also, he said if you can't destroy a staircase, then put a metal sheet or a door on it so it makes a slanted surface and makes it difficult for zombies to climb. World War Z was a brilliant book, and so was Zombie Survival Guide, that's why both books are bestsellers.

I dunno boss, brilliant book? Maybe we gots different criteria fah brilliance chief. You know, might be we don't see eye to eye. Might be you gots different ideas about fallacies too. Because appeal to the masses is a nice big god damn fallacy.

Sure people have different opinions, but if 99% of the population likes a certain thing, then obviously they're doing something right. I think weege is just nitpicking and thinking about this stuff way too much, that's the problem with people today, everyone's a critic. Unless the problem is blatantly obvious or conflicts with the plot or some shit, I don't give it much thought. Just shut your brain off and enjoy.

A bestseller is more like 5,000 copies in a week, not 99% of the population. As for the "something right" it's called appealing to the lowest common denominator.

I'm not trying to cut you down I swear, but this kinda "logic" is no bueno man. The general populace of America at points has thought that slavery was a good idea, down here in the south up until 30ish years ago black people were still treated like shit by the general populace, same goes for non-christians down here just nowhere the extent that black people had to endure. That line of thinking walks hand in hand with genocide and ignorance on a large scale.

And it's not to say that people who are individualistic are always right either but you have to at least give them the credit for trying to think for themselves and worrying about what they want for themselves instead of whether or not people will agree with their ideals. It's cool and comforting to feel like you belong somewhere, but you shouldn't be changing yourself just to fit it and just because everyone at the Jonestown party is drinking the special kool aid doesn't mean you should either.

But these are my opinions and you are entitled to yours. The only flaw with my above logic is that it sounds like it could permit murderers/pederasts, but my other moral principles dictate that if someone's actions will harm others then those actions are not to be done. Murderers/pederasts need to keep that darkness in their head where it belongs and if you're too weak to control yourself and you want to do some activities that shred you of your humanity and turn you into a rabid animal then you can be dispatched just as easy as one.

OT: I didn't really dig a lot of the Survival guide and I haven't read any of World War Z so I have no frame of reference for that. The thing that made me hate the guide though early on was when I first joined NMRiH back when the snes had just come out and everyone was quoting the fucking survival guide in here over and over and fucking over, I thought we were gonna change the game into Zombie Survival Guide: A HL2 mod. Reaperman would do that all the time, like talk about zombies as being these black and white things that only logically functioned if they functioned like they did in the book, period. This was back before Left for Dead was even out and I was talking about bloat like zombies and fast zombies and making it so players could be zombies and use their puke as a scent guide for other lesser zombies to swarm to (I was a sucker for A v P and wanted more human vs player controlled monsters). But they would keep saying the same shit, zombies HAVE to be slow they HAVE to be this and they HAVE to be that...does a made up creature HAVE to be a certain way? I mean it's not a real thing, if I said zombies develop a protein on reanimation that causes testicle like growths to form on their earlobes, how could anyone prove me wrong? They are what we want them to be. That Survival Guide...

I meant they were doing something right as in something that appealed to the general public, I don't mean that it was particularly good, like the slavery example you mentioned, but thankfully enough people didn't like it (the North) put an end to it.

Are you sure they weren't talking about the common George Romero zombie? The book was mainly based on that, the only part of the survival guide I didn't really like was that severed zombie heads would still be alive. But then again they ARE zombies, they have no heartbeat, it's fiction.

Oh well, can you blame the business for trying to make money? I see Max Brooks is generally hated here, but opinions are opinions.

I also have no feelings good or bad for Max Brooks, I'm just bitching about people using the Survival Handbook as a bible is all.

I hope the 2nd season will be fun.

I just finished the first season. I still find it incredibly stupid yet it's strangely compelling. It's like they hired the same bullshit writers that tricked me into watching 6 seasons of Lost.

If Redneck Boondock Saint's brother doesn't come back with a chainsaw on his stump I will be incredibly disappointed.

i heard that they gave the show double the episodes but only half the budget (per episode) this time around, and that is why frank darabount has left the series.

the first episode of the second season was pretty good. i did find it funny that as the episode goes on the commercial to show ratio shifted more and more, but luckily tv jesus invented dvr.

I wanna have your sex, Charles. I get a massive erection when people agree with me. Or disagree with me. Or when I get junk mail. Anything, really.
