    The meth problem in northern CO would make anyone a believer in the walking dead.

    A stalk of the newfound fungus species Ophiocordyceps camponoti-balzani, grows out of a "zombie" ant's head in a Brazilian rain forest.

    Originally thought to be a single species, called Ophiocordyceps unilateralis, the fungus is actually four distinct species—all of which can "mind control" ants—scientists announced Wednesday.

    Potential zombie infestation?

    I strongly suggest taking the higher ground and staying above the fray as long as possible. This would allow the rider to deliver well placed steel toe boot kicks to their diseased craniums. Additionally the large diameter wheels would roll easily over the ever increasing depth of finally "deceased" zombie carcasses- it's gonna' get deep out there.

    YIKES! My first thought was an "Ant-alope", a distant cousin of this:

    Which in its own right could be a precursor to the modern animal zombie........

    Watch the movie "The Serpent and The Rainbow", or read the book and you decide. 'Resurrected dead' doesn't necessarily entail said dead eating the flesh of the living.

    (am I the only one who sees the humor in that this thread started up on Easter weekend? :rofl)

    Forget dog-based Zombies . . . . you have a rational fear of dangerous dogs.

    Much - much - much more dangerous is something that you are handicapped from beginning to flee away . . . .because you may be laughing too hard. In other words, your 'laughter' can get you killed!

    You want to know how it all got started? Its like Mad Cow disease . . . feeding a species on itself creates a Feed-Back Loop!

    There is the power of the Green Lobby - - - - - conservation - - - - food shortages!

    Where's the food going to come from? Simple - - - - we'll just recycle:

    I kept it on the wall behind my desk, along with the picture of me geared up in the turret of a Humvee manning the .50 cal.

    Of course it's against policy to use it on a kid, but... you know, what kid really wants to be the first test case? :huh

    Birdshot? Not a chance. You need significant penetration for brain incapacitation; you don't want to just crater the face. Nothing less than #1 buck - and 00 or slugs would work way better.

    I'd take a quiet .22 for loners, and a high capacity 5.56 for ... anything more.

    I wouldn't recommend firing THAT with one hand, or without a glove on the front grip. Nor without "can't hear a damned thing" hearing protection.

    It must sound and look like an atomic bomb going off. :eek1
