Welcome to Friday. Today we have a particularly gruesome post (literally). This was inspired by an NCIS episode we saw, sometime in the 8th season.
Zombies are a peculiar lot. Not wanting to limit our analysis to the living, we have begun to examine the undead.
In this clip (there are many available), we note that a common characteristic seems to be partial paralysis of an lower and/or upper extremity, along with the peculiar behavior of keeping their upper extremities in a flexed posture, similar to a stroke. They also seem to have an exaggerated gag reflex and difficulty with phonation (talking). We believe this is a neurological phenomenon, based on the fact that the only way to truly kill a zombie is to kill their brain.
Have a great Friday!
