As a hard-core vampire fan, I've been curious as to why people have started going so hog-wild over zombies. I mean, who would choose a rotting corpse?
It has been brought to my attention that zombie fans are a lot like vampire fans.
When I see the word "vampire," thoughts come to mind. I think most people are the same. These thoughts are shaped from many books, movies, TV shows and other sources. Whether you're thinking tall, thin, bald head, long fingers and pointy ears or sexy and well dressed, it doesn't matter. Both forms are now widely accepted. But there are also mythological aspects of vampires. And let's not forget about the references to human sexuality!
For zombies, physical traits can come to mind too. Some things that come to my mind are puss, sores and missing body parts. But I might be biased! Anyway, it has been brought to my attention that an underlying aspect of planning for a Zombie Apocalypse has its uses too. While a person imagines what they might need if zombies ever try to take over the world, a lot of the supplies they may take along with them would probably also be needed during a natural disaster (hurricane, tornado, other evacuation). Planning for a Zombie Apocalypse can therefore help people plan for disasters of many kinds.
If you have something to add, please leave a comment for me. You may also leave a comment if you are feeling the need to defend zombies everywhere. However, I'm pretty sure I'll be sticking with the vampires!
