There might be something new going on with the zombies ripping into bellies of animals and humans. Are they evolving? I wonder if that relates to why those guys were wandering in the fields last week.
I was wondering about that too. They also noticed a zombie that was affected, but did not have bite marks in a previous episode as well. Something to keep an eye on I guess...
Excellent nutty texture and delicious savoury flavour, lad.
Making it easier to rip on the Talking Dead afterwards....everyone is watching Talking Dead at midnight, right?
Maybe the most awesome summer class ever. I'm jealous.
I'm in such disbelief that I am drawing a blank with something clever to post.
I can only imagine how difficult it would be to put down your little brother if he were to be bitten.
"1960's advertising culture and feminism" as well as "extracurricular income sources for cancer stricken science teachers." i passed on "excruciatingly slow murder solving" and "1880's railroad development as metaphor for contemporary culture."
Its probably more of a human behavior study. As one fan of zombie movies knows, the movies are not about the zombies, but about the people and how the react and interact with each other.
I know ill get killed for this but I definitley would take this class....maybee ive been watching too much walking dead
I actually think this course is pretty awesome. Yeah, zombies are not really an issue, but learning and thinking about how to survive if society breaks down seems like a legitimate academic exercise.
Of course, at MSU I'm sure the first and last line of defense would be the burning of couches.
You've gotta be forth-thinking. Don't choose your method of survival just for Z-Day survival. Choose a location that will allow you to outlast it (bodies decay beyond function in a month or two) and provide easy access to supplies and equipment for the rebuild.
If you want to gamble that flesh eating zombies don't have a digestive system (or a respiratory system, as depicted in Dead Rising. Both of which indiciate "bodily" functions) then that's a pretty solid plan.
I would love to take this.
On the other hand, maybe they should offer a class on how to close out Big Ten Championships?
They just went up a step in my mind...they are on step 1.
Might as well be the ag kids in east lansing Doomsday preppers is having a real tangible effect on states course outline. By this im not shocked.
I may be alone on this but I read the headline and thought MSU was offering scholarships to the undead in the event that such an apocalypse occurs. Even then we'll still probably get them if Hoke offers.
I heard zombies may picket outside the class.
"What do we want?"
"When do we want them?"
Since the series hit the air I've bought 2 Mossbergs and an AR15.
Underground bunker is built and the dry goods and water are ready.
Chainsaw and samurai sword are next.Oh, but what about a can opener?
In Germany, American MLRS battalions were only going to last about 25 minutes against the Russians/East German forces.
I figure I can hold off a hundred or more zombies for a couple of days.
Zombie preparedness is just good sense.
Can I take it online? lol
only a 2 credit course?
I've been doing this for 35 years, where's my PhD?
they're so creative up there
Sounds like a very neat class!
It deals with many important cultural and social issues and can be a very legit academic class- sounds neat!
I can't believe there aren't any MSU riot jokes on here. Am I so old...?
They have a Zombie Apocalypse after every big loss. The class could be useful. Might save some couches.
The zombie bit is probably bait to get you to take the class. I've taken minicourses to fill in schedule gaps called Aliens and Dinosaurs here, and both of them were kind of disappointing, IMHO (although they were easy A's for my trouble).
Yes, it's good for a good laugh about academics, but it's probably as legitimate as any minicourse we offer, and honestly, it kind of sounds like fun. Sort like when Cal or UCLA (can't remember which) had a class on StarCraft for a while.
I mean it's only a summer class too, it's not like there's athletes majoring in "Zombie Survival"
we can all agree that the world is going to end via zombie, in some way shape or form. I think this class is a perfectly reasonable idea.
Nice work w the Straight Dope!
I thought this thread was going to be about Sparty needing to offer anyone and everyone in the '13 recruiting class because they're still being dominated.
This.... is even better.
....and it should be highlighted on their undergraduate course catalog. I see a "Night Of The Living Spartans" promotional video for the school in the future. I like where this is headed.
LOVE to take this class. Obviously, the zombie angle is a little goofy, but it truly would be fascinating to learn tips for survival. I'm not sure how much of the plot of the new movie Hunger Games would apply, but it's making me even more excited for that movie, as well as The Walking Dead!
Props to mgobloggers here, giving credit when it's due. This course would be wicked awesome... wish I was still a student...
