Woman shot following Walking Dead argument

Police say a Willston Park, New York, man shot his girlfriend in the back Monday following an argument about the AMC adaptation of The Walking Dead.

Twenty-six-year-old Jared M. Gurman reportedly believed a military mishap could lead to the release of a virus, triggering a zombie apocalypse; Jessica Gelderman, 27, thought the idea was absurd.

According to police, the argument escalated and even continued through text messages after Gelderman left the apartment to spend the night at her parents’ house.

When Gelderman returned to try to smooth things over with her boyfriend, police allege he was sitting on the stairs with a .22-caliber rifle; a single round pierced her lung and diaphragm and shattered her ribs.

Gurman was arrested when he took Gelderman to the hospital. She’s in stable condition with the bullet still in her body.

Glad she survived. You know, a lot of zombie afficiandoes really try for headshots. I guess her boyfriend went for center mass.

Jessica is correct. Walking dead are impossibilities that become even less possible as time goes by. Too many electrical and chemical processes have to be working for a body to remain animated. Even the zombies in the series are decaying a bit which means the series can only last so long.

The Walking Dead isn’t a nerdy show. It’s a good drama set in a science fiction environment.

A nerd would recognize the impossibility of walking dead bodies. This guy is just an idjit.

Ive never been a fan of zombie flicks but I do love the walking dead. There are a lot of good questions raised about surviving in a post societal world.

But I actually am a nerd so I couldn't pass up a serious discussion on the possibility of zombies.

I blame the fact that the show teats a redneck like a valued member of the group. Why, he's even friendly black people!

Aw shucks! You mean Rick, Lori and Shane have nothing to do with this at all?!!!

More seriously, I pray the woman recovers and is able to find a new boyfriend.

Something a bit like rabies would be like a zombie virus.

Close enough anyway. Unbridled aggression, reduced fluidity of motion, unslakable thirst/hunger, hypersensitivity to stimulus, inattention to injuries and skin infections, spread by bites and body fluids and followed by ultimate death.

I am turning my daughter into a giant pig-dog and didn’t tell my wife.

I was hired to create a graphic for a German magazine that is doing a story about people struggling against their inner pig-dog, to achieve their New Year’s resolutions.

I am no artist so I took pictures of my daughter running and am currently working to Photoshop one into a giant pig-dog, towering above our street.

My wife asked me what I am doing...

I told her I am doing nothing.

that or a disease brought on by cat feces.

If you look at his tats you can tell right off he's a moron. Tattoos are great. They instantly identify people who are not worth associating with. Along with baseball caps worn backwards they provide a reliable guide to identifying the intellectually challenged.

Along with baseball caps worn backwards they provide a reliable guide to identifying the intellectually challenged.

Baseball caps worn sideways signal: "release the safety on your weapon", or alternatively: "evacuate the immediate area".

“Walking dead are impossibilities that become even less possible as time goes by. Too many electrical and chemical processes have to be working for a body to remain animated. “

That’s why zombies aren’t science fiction but horror. The dead cannot walk because they are dead. Whatever animates them must be supernatural.

<><><><><><

Hilarious.

Did you really just list out reasons why zombies cannot be real?

Do you mean to tell me that we cannot rely on removing their lower jaw and arms as a way of protecting ourselves from zombies? Crap. What’ll we do now?

Funny, I cannot watch any of the werewolf/vampire shows, but I look forward to watching the Walking Dead.

yes the way the virus is described as working in the story is nuts, and the bodies of the reanimated dead don’t repair themselves and are in far better shape than they’d actually be.

that and the idiotic idea that a non-killing zombie bite dooms someone to die, but the same non lethal trauma - arrow thru the leg - since the all have the virus in them waiting to reanimate them when they die - they don’t die from.

yes it has interesting scenarios. anything on tv though is far less extreme as what it would be in real life. probably by a factor of 100 at its worst.

If they argued so violently about such stupid things obviously this was bound to happen no matter the details of the argument.
