    Oregon woman arrested for 'zombie game' assault SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - An Oregon woman was arrested for breaking into a home and attacking a woman resident, while claiming she was playing a "zombie game," police said on Monday. Sheriff's officers arrested Jessica Rocha, 27, at a home in the coastal town of Lakeside, said Sergeant Kelley Andrews of Coos County, adding that she was charged with criminal mischief, assault, unlawful entry, harassment and attempted burglary. "She was making comments about playing a zombie game,'" Andrews said, "I've never heard of that." The Coos Bay World newspaper reported that Rocha pushed...

    <p>MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) — Some Central Michigan University students are getting schooled in the undead this semester, thanks to a religion course that's exploring apocalyptic themes in biblical texts, literature and pop culture.</p> <p>Philosophy and religion faculty member Kelly Murphy says she always wanted to teach a course on apocalyptic literature, and she is a fan of AMC's TV show "The Walking Dead." The result is Murphy's class, which is called "From Revelation to 'The Walking Dead.'"</p>

    ‘Zombie Obama’ Target maker debuts ‘Gun Lobbyist’ and ‘Al Sharpton’ models According to their website, Zombie Industries, the same company whose reactive targets resembling President Obama made a “big splash” at this years National Rifle Association’s convention in Houston, has debuted two new products: Gun Control Lobbyist and ‘Al Sharpton’ target mannequins. Riding the crest of the billion dollar ‘zombie wave’, this San Diego based company has brought shooters life-size targets that bleed for the past couple of years, routinely turning heads at gun shows and offending delicate sensibilities (the target maker recently renamed a female target, “Alexa”, originally called...

    TEMECULA: Driver claims zombies chasing him after big I-15 crash A Tennessee man, 19, is accused of taking a big-rig Saturday and causing a crash that injures 7 people A big-rig crash that blocked Interstate 15 in Temecula for hours Saturday evening, April 6, was caused by a 19-year-old driver who claimed he was on the run from the walking dead, authorities said. “He said zombies were chasing him and he had to get out of here,” said Officer Nathan Baer, a spokesman for the California Highway Patrol. The crash was no laughing matter. Not only did it cause a...

    The Walking Dead is all about blood, gore – and gun control • Despite its violence, The Walking Dead mirrors moderate US attitudes on gun ownership and background checks The Walking Dead finished its third season in a flourish of gunfire and guts, sticking to the pillars of its ratings dominance. While nobody's much surprised by the extreme bloodiness of a show that merges two violent genres – post-apocalyptic horror and the classic western, – what is surprising is that The Walking Dead actually reflects moderate, popular US views on gun control. That might seem like a ridiculous statement for...

    Oregon school cancels zombie survival classes, ensures students will be eaten Armand Larive Middle School had what is perhaps the greatest junior high social studies class ever: Zombie Survival Skills. But the killjoy parents and administrators put the kibosh on the post-apocalyptic class, feeling that undead studies were not appropriate for growing minds. The East Oregonian reported on Rich Harshberger's zombie survival classes at Armand Larive earlier this week, a class that focused largely on real-world survival skills and also had a reading and writing component. Apparently, parents were a bit surprised to learn the school was teaching a class...

    Zombie-scented perfumes make you smell less attractive to the undead Usually a person dabs on a bit of perfume in hopes of attracting someone else's attention, but could a zombie-scented perfume repel the affections of the flesh-craving dead? Demeter Fragrance Library, purveyors of all sorts of offbeat scents, have come up with a pair of undead-themed perfumes that could come in handy during the zombie apocalypse. No, the perfume doesn't smell like decaying flesh. Instead, Zombie for Him combines dried leaves, mushrooms, mildew, moss and earth, while Zombie for Her is a more feminine version, adding "a touch of Dregs...

    Zombie Survival Kit features real tactical ax and a spork Be prepared for the dead to rise again with a zombie kit containing a tomahawk, snacks, zombie crime scene tape, and a spork. You have options when it comes to zombie-slaying weapons. Loud guns may attract unwanted zombie attention. Baseballs bats can require several swats to work. Chainsaws need gas. A tactical ax, however, is portable and effective. ThinkGeek's Zombie Survival Kit features a stainless-steel SOG Tactical Tomahawk, suitable for close combat or hurling from a distance at the undead. Zombie crime scene tape helps you alert other survivors to...

    For Only $23,999.00 ... the Ultimate Zombie Apocalypse Survival Kit Your last hope: The $24,000 zombie survival kit Don't expect big firepower from this gear collection, but it does have a few tools that could keep you alive among the undead. My preparations for the coming zombie apocalypse came down to one thing: a baseball bat. But this kit from OpticsPlanet makes me think I'm being terribly naive. The Z.E.R.O. (Zombie Extermination, Research, and Operations) Zombie Kit is the mother of all undead survival kits. For a whopping $24,000 you get oodles of tools, protective gear, cases, and weapons accessories....

    "Zombie" attacks continue: Naked man arrested after biting Fla. man Despite assurances from the CDC that zombies do not, in fact, exist, strange things keep happening in Florida. The Center for Disease Control says we have no reason to fear a zombie virus. But that hasn't stopped a series of strange events, including one in which Rudy Eugene brutally attacked a homeless man, biting off chunks of his face. Perhaps 22-year-old Jeremiah Haughee found Eugene to be an inspirational figure. That's our best guess for why he was climbed naked onto the roof of a St. Augustine, Fla., home, bit...

    'Zombie Apocalypse' To Hit Detroit? Zombie Theme Park Hopes To Breathe New Life To City You may soon be able to pay for an afternoon of fear. Entrepreneur Mark Siwak is hoping to build a "zombie apocalypse" horror theme park in Detroit. Years of population decline has left parts of the city of Detroit rundown and abandoned, but Siwak is hoping to breathe new life into the urban landscape -- by bringing in the dead. According to the Huffington Post, the entrepreneur's idea is to build Z World, a live-action zombie theme park right in an abandoned Detroit neighborhood. Theme...

    Zombie Bullets In High Demand Following Flesh-Eating Attacks DETROIT (WWJ) – Worried about a zombie attack? Buy zombie bullets. Talk about zombies and a possible zombie apocalypse has increased due to recent gory accounts of drug-induced, flesh-eating attacks in the news. Stores across the U.S., including in Metro Detroit, are getting in on the undead action by selling Zombie Bullets, made by Hornady Manufacturing. In promoting the product on their website, Hornady suggests, “Be PREPARED – supply yourself for the Zombie Apocalypse with Zombie Max ammunition from Hornady!

    "The Government has officially denied that there is any Zombie outbreak..." The US Center for Disease Control has been forced to address the American public in the wake of internet rumors of a possible ‘zombie apocalypse”. It’s hard to say which is more ‘out there’: that people believe there might be a virus that reanimates dead people, or that a federal agency actually weighed in on the issue in earnest. The CDC has previously run a few tongue-in-cheek campaigns about zombies, using the popular theme to get the public prepared for “anything”. As the agency’s director says, “if you...

    What are the tax implications of the zombie apocalypse? The only certainties in life are death and taxes, but how do you handle the taxes when death doesn't go quite as planned? Law professor Adam Chodorow takes a stab at estate planning for the undead in perhaps the only legal paper to cite both the Internal Revenue Code and Weekend at Bernie's II. Chodorow, a professor at Arizona State University's Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, authored the paper "Death and Taxes...and Zombies," which will appear in a forthcoming issue of the Iowa Law Review. Chodorow notes that, while the...

    Russia announces plans for zombie gun, prepare your bunkers Memories of the cold war have been raised from the dead this week with the confirmation from Russian officials they are testing an energy gun that would essentially turn people into zombies. The "psychotronic" gun would not only inflict pain but also attack the central nervous system leaving enemies scrambled. The weapon, which is said to use electromagnetic radiation, was announced by Russian defense minister Anatoly Serdyukov and was confirmed by Russian Prime Minister and President-elect Vladimir Putin. It has apparently in some form been tested for crowd control. If this...

    Holy cr@p! This zombie attack bike is powered by a chainsaw I'm sorry, did you think I meant a chainsaw motor? I suppose that's understandable (after all, two-stroke chainsaw engines are often used to convert bicycles into rear-wheel-drive motorbikes), but I didn't say chainsaw motor, did I? I said chainsaw. Because whoever pieced together this unholy death machine has clearly left the power source attached to a number of other components. They've even opted for a FWD conversion so that the saw's guide blade and cutting chain could be front-mounted. 100% terrifying, 100% brilliant. Perfect for plowing through hordes of...

    Michonne’s gory Walking Dead backstory revealed in the latest issue of Playboy Stoic, sword-wielding Michonne is one of the greatest characters in The Walking Dead comic series, but before the zombie apocalypse, she was an ordinary lawyer who used swords for fencing rather than chopping off limbs. The new issue of Playboy features a six-page comic that reveals the precise moment Michonne became a badass. Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard made the short comic "Michonne's Story" for the April 2012 issue of Playboy, which just came out yesterday. It's a quick trip down memory lane with a very different Michonne,...

We all know who I’m talking about. Realistically, it could only be one of two people: Either Sophia’s mopey mom, whose name I still don’t know, or that endlessly whining bleeding heart Dale. (Alas, the screencap AMC chose for the clip embedded below gives it away.) Now that some of the dead weight is being shed, I take it poor underused T-Dog is next. Or maybe Herschel’s other daughter,...

In the feature-length film, "Osombie: The Axis of Evil Dead," a NATO Special Forces unit races to defeat zombie bin Laden and his flesh-seeking militia, while also stopping the infection from spreading to even more terrorist corpses. According to the film's executive producer, Kynan Griffin, the script was written before the real al Qaeda...

    The Capitol architect wanted to reanimate George Washington’s dead body George Washington may have been America's first president, but was he nearly America's first zombie-in-chief? If William Thornton, physician and designer of the US Capitol, had had his way, Washington's body would have been subjected a scientific experiment designed to bring the deceased former president back to life. In December 1799, 67-year-old George Washington took a ride through the wet winter rain and, shortly afterward, developed a fever and a sore throat. When his condition became so bad that Washington could no longer swallow the concoctions of vinegar, molasses, and...

    How you equip yourself for a zombie apocalypse depends largely on your personal belief systems. Are you going to focus solely on self-preservation? Or is restoring order to your country a transcendent objective? How willing are you to share your resources with strangers? And how discriminating will you be in shooting other human beings? Author Daniel Drezner tackles such moral dilemmas on a global level in his book Theories of International Politics and Zombies. Drezner is the real deal, by the way, a professor of international politics at Tufts University and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Here’s...
