I don't know if you keep the mentality of thinking they're no longer people that both Zombieland and Highschool of the Dead put out someone (even a regular person) might be only slightly if at all effected by killing one of 'them'

I wouldn't exactly freak out, but I would likely be scared for my life and my family.

I'd freak like something awful, but I'd have enough wits about me to try and survive.

Oh, and I'm going to have Julia have second thoughts. Maybe balance out the numbers once more and give you a jeep driver, if that's quite alright.

Livix, it's called prejudice



because you look like a kid
talk like a kid



the Fed and the Marshal are going to treat you like a "kid". You're getting no special treatment, even if you say you're ready for it. The truth of the matter is humans judge everything first.


You sadly can't change that until you can actually show it.


I know it's based of of you, someone who knows about this stuff.

But they don't, so you are getting thrown into the "woman and children" category. The group still has its humanity, otherwise we really would let you go it alone. Neil would think of it not so much as not trusting you, but protecting you from harm.


It's a natural thing to do.



Get me now?

We fear what we do not truly understand, it is natural of a human being to do so. That is why we rationalize or try to explain everything. To ease that fear of the unknown, no matter of small and insignificant it may be.

Changed my question to Jeremy a little, it makes more sense now.
- If you don't give a crap, go out and find a reason to.
- Life is as good as your current state permits you to enjoy it.
- To block out the world, I put headphones on, so I don't have to listen, to anyone.

*Announcer voice*



In a world, where zombies roam the streets. Where some would shoot, others would use small arm sized bladed weaponry. Risking their health on the line, these few choose to look cool over survival. Diving into hordes of zombies to start hacking, these "heroes" chop their way through waves of human flesh.


"Puny guns! We are too cool and edgy for that!"


They scoff at the guns,


"Why should I risk my health over my nice [INSERT GENERIC LARGE KNIFE HERE], I have to to do one thing! Cut zombies, AND get infected in the process!"


Because who cares about getting bitten or scratched in such close quarters when you have a nice [INSERT GENERIC LARGE KNIFE HERE]


About the only time you're guaranteed to come out unscathed with both your humanity and your public image, is when you fight a single zombie one on one. BUT EVEN THEN YOU'RE SO BADDASS YOU COULD BE KILLED ANYWAY.


"Uhgg. .. .gu h h. . . .Argbll. . . .ugh, ugh. .. .owaaaaah. . ." - ACTUAL TESTIMONY OF ONE COOL MOTHERFUCKING KNIFE WIELDER


"Mah. . . .awwww. . hurrrrrgh. . ." - "I GIVE IT 5 STARS FOR HELPING ME TURN EASIER!"



And not to worry, pussy [INSERT LONG MELEE TYPE SWORD/OBJECT] users, you can also participate in this slaught of innocence. Since no one is safe. . . .FROM LOOKING COOL, WHILE ATTACKING A HORDE WITH [INSERT LONG MELEE TYPE SWORD/OBJECT]!!!!

I'm done now :)
I have nothing against people who use big knives in a zombie fight
I just like poking fun at people who do
For it's all done in good taste chaps

3 things

1. Slips I guess I understand

2. Fenix my knife is just like that (the 10in blade part), 'cept it's military grade so I think that'd be expectable

3. I have 4 [INSERT GENERIC LARGE KNIFE HERE] in my room (including the one for the RP)

Well their's a reason why the two sayings exist:


"bringing a knife to a gun-fight"

and


"A man is only as good as his nest gun" (ok well not his gun, but you get the idea)



unless of course you have no gun, in that case you're as good as your best non-firearm.

lol. I agree about the knife thing. bladed weaponry can't do enough damage to the brain unless it's a sword of some type and you completely decapitate them, but after about 6 or 7 human (zombie) necks it would be so dull it would become a bludgeon, which is honestly better anyway.

also the MRE's was never meant to be a permanent solution obviously. I also knew that we were going into town (not going to bother quoting Fenix), but I was waiting on the soldier to make that announcement (and trying not to be omniscient) for whatever reason she had. As most of us would be wanting to get out of the city, especially since Glen knows that there is a small town 10 miles out of Las Vegas where we could get supplies. Just saying.

Like hell they're letting the 16 year old drive
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

Oh come on I don't want to be completely useless, and my weapons are under warranty that they shouldn't become dull in their lifetime of use I guess it's just the materials, and even if that's not true for the sword it's double edged so at least I'd get twice the use out of it

The thing about stories like this, is that eventually the characters that aren't trusted get a chance to prove themselves. The adults try to do everything by themselves and something goes wrong, when that happens one of the younger kids steps up and proves himself and from then on he is trusted more. If no one else does first, I'll set you up for it.

Also cutting through a human (zombie) neck is almost comparative to cutting through steel. The only good news is that you don't have to cut all the way through the spinal cord. Just enough to slow electrical impulses, but if i remember correctly, some of the zombies can survive even then according to fenix.

Don't you all be worrying about how to kill a zombie, I decide if it dies or not so you just worry about 1 thing.
It's brain.

Indeed, but even then the blade you are using would stop dead into the zombie you are chopping, thus you are left wide-open.


Or Grand-Master-Flash can decide from his hole in the sky. That works too heh heh

my plan was more or less just separating their spinal column from their head by slipping behind one and putting the knife at the base of the skill (where it meets the actual neck) and twisting, so even if they survive there would be no physical explanation as to why they'd be able to move, not to mention that method has you going through pretty much only nerve tissue so unless it didn't work your knife or bladed weapon in general wouldn't dull

plus if you have just the right size blade you could just stab through the top of the head (although for that method there's a good chance for your blade to get stuck)

and finally if your blade is precise enough and you have a great enough understanding of the human body, you could actually slice in between the vertebrae allowing you to only hit nerve tissue

No one in the group has that knowledge



and one more thing. I'm not good with fire-arm information, do silencers (especially law-enforcement variety) have a "one-size-fits-all" or are silencers specific objects?



I see we have multiple pistol types, it' be safe to assume we may not be able to silence them all. . .right?
(Except for the mp3's, but those are in another category all together)

I'm not sure, I wanna say yes to the silencer thing but I've never used a silencer before so I wouldn't know
