I've seen The Hunger Games - does that count?

I'm well versed on the likely apocalyptic options and have done some prepping in the past but right now all of my food is fresh meat and veg, therefore gone (or gone off) in no time

I got a year but I suspect that was because I TOLD THE TRUTH on the running question XD

The results are in! You'd survive for
after the apocalypse.
You know, that's pretty damn good for the end of the world. Well done.
You're basically Will Smith in I Am Legend.

If I change my answer to the running question I get 10 years.

I get 5 years even after telling the truth on the running question.

The irony is that the more you HAVE to run, the better you will get, so if you can stay alive for a year, your chances of surviving longer increase because presumably you'd be fitter than you are now from all the running away.... Yeah I'm thinking about this WAY too much.

Wouldn't it depend on what type of Zombie? Slow Walkers or speedy 28 Days/World War Z types (too much thinking)

I would say somewhere between Walking dead and 28 days later. Because as the tissue gets necrosis, it would get worse for movement, so would start quick and deteriorate rapidly.

Thats not what happens in World War Z the book though where the 'virus' seems to keep the Zombies going longer than you would expect a corpse to last.

The whole decay issue is the core weakness of the Zombie genre. I can get past the idea that parasites or viruses 'take over' the brain of a dead person and animate their limbs in a semblance of 'life' but as the body starts to rot, so too will the brain, quickly becoming unusable as a 'nutrition source' for the virus/parasite. Additionally the rotting body doesn't produce enzymes and stuff that are needed to digest the 'food' zombies are driven to 'consume'. I can get past this too by imagining that this is more about spreading the virus/parasite than actually imbibing nutrients but what I really can't get past is how a corpse is able to move limbs without muscles or where connective tissue has rotted - movement is a ballet, full of form and colour (sorry, 5th element ref, couldn't resist) that relies on muscles connected to bones via tendons and sinew. The muscles rely on nerve impulses from the brain and spinal column. Even the smallest bit of damage to this would result in paralysis - particularly around the neck area yet we're seeing fully ambulatory zombies with clearly broken or damaged spines and in some cases missing parts or muscles that are required to move the limbs. Sorry but I don't buy it.

Also, 28 days later was kinda clever because people didn't have to die before they 'turned' - it was an infection that took over their brain and they were killable so technically the 'zombies' in 28DL weren't undead. After all, they survived by waiting for them to die of starvation...
