Things that Burners and Zombies have in common

Post by Rusted Iron » Wed Apr 01, 2015 8:05 pm

1). As evidenced by several episodes of The Walking Dead, zombies love the flames... Light something up and they will come a shambling. Hell, even road flares will distract them for a little while.

2) Sunday night, we learned that loud music and sparkling disco lights will do the same. Lured a whole zombie hoarde into semi trucks trailers.

3). Pink eye....

Anything more?

They both share a penchant for post-apocalyptic environments, too.

Since we've only seen zombies on TV or movies, we don't really know if zombies smell like bacon or poo poo dookie-icky.
Burners could be either...

Off playa..
They both wander through Walmart and Home Depot having disconnected thoughts.

They both grab things that would be useless to them if used as intended.

On playa...
They're both wearing evidence of their most recent meal.

They both have an injury requiring medical attention that they aren't going to get.

They both wander for hours looking for that special bar, restaurant, person that was 'right here'.

both are fond of giving unsolicited hugs.
had a long conversation on playa about how fucked we would be if the zombie apoc. started at BM, half of us would be infected from giving hugs before we realised.
I did give PSAs about not hugging members of zombie camp, as it never ends well
