The purposes of this thread is to establish rhetorical questions that have been on your mind as you watch.
You can respond to the questions, and please post your own!
BTW: If you go to Robin reads the walking dead, I will be putting content there as well that compares the TV show with the comic book: http://www.thetvcritic.org/blog/robin-reads-the-walking-dead/
* Why aren't there vultures or hyenas (who live off the dead) preying on the Walkers?
I understand the movement might ward them off, however the smell coming off those walkers must be overwhelming to draw them to at least try.
*Where are all the flies? Wouldn't so much rotting flesh bring about a more flies that what we see?
Shouldn't the walkers have flies crawling all over them?
*Why aren't the walkers swatting away at flies or trying to eat them? Flies move right? They are food.
* Why hasn't anyone taken over an old fort or newer military facility and used that as a home?
(Examples in or near Georgia: Fort McPherson, Fort Gillem, Fort Benning, Fort Gordon,
Fort Stewart, Fort Redstone, Fort Knox, Hunter Army Airfield, Lawson Army Airfield,
Dobbins Air Reserve Base, Moody Air Force Base, Robins Air Force Base, Atlanta Naval Air Station,
King's Bay Naval Submarine Base.)
* Did the president or anyone in Washington DC survive? What about leadership in other countries?
* Wouldn't places like Antartica, Wyoming or North Dakota or Northern Canada, Alaska, Eastern Russia be
some of the safest places to live?
* Why hasn't anyone stumbled upon bomb shelters or doomsday preppers that are still alive? (I keep thinking of character Burt and his wife in the movie 'Tremors'. )
* Wouldn't a slaughterhouse or vast cattle ranch be the ideal place to have food and attract loads of walkers?
* Are walkers actually getting sustenance from their attacks on animals and humans to prolong their lives?
If not, wouldn't a walker gradually rot away in 2-3 years time and be relatively harmless or non moving?
* Wouldn't the Hoover Dam be able to supply still a limitless amount of power for someone?
* Wouldn't people still be able to get power from using Wind turbines and solar power?
* Anything that operates on batteries is probably still good to use. Why aren't people modifying items to use only batteries? Anyone who took physics in high school should be able to figure out how to do some of this.
