hey guys, can zombies swim? and if not, what are the pros and cons of living on a river, and just going up and down it, or just all over any of the connecting rivers? but never out to sea. think about other humans too.

Lots and lots of variables to deal with here! Exposure is a serious problem that a living and healthy mammal would have to deal with but a body that is sort of alive but decaying? It would erode so much faster in water but it would almost certainly make the water polluted forever by being in it for even a short time. So Depending on how fish would react and animals of the water in general... Yikes, one of my least favorite issues of the subject in general.

Shambler 12/11/12(Mon)20:33 No. 4000 ID: 822be8

so since the water would be polluted, if most of the earth's water becomes polluted, would that make polluted rain too? or just that all fish would die along with every other animal eventually?

With out hard evidence to work with, it comes down to the thearetical constructs. For example, what caused the zombie issue and how does it spread or infect? If it's from bite only, water is still fucking screwed and rain may well be infected and everything in the long run along with it. But what it water is not aluring to zombies, or even that it may repel them? This kind of plays into what I mentioned before about variables and it comes down to this; what on Earth does not want/need water and what on Earth does not in some way touch or interact with water? Water comes in so many forms and is a part of so many things in so many ways that the infection or what have you is the catalyst of how this would either be a similar "as is" scenario, down to a threat or blessing.

in your opinion. how fucked are we if there were zombies. pick a type of zombie that is the most convenient because most people i talk too all say one thing.
in the end were fucked

DR.zomberg 12/11/13(Tue)10:36 No. 4007 ID: 056e85

it depends what type of zombie/creature it is. like in ops pic, with rage infected? fucked to the max, good thing its not airborne.
romero? undecided. no one ever turned by anything other than bites and dying wiouth brain damage. then again, we never saw them curling down a river and filling a bottler or drinking directly from it.
walking dead? safe, they have been exposed multiple times to zombie fluids and didnt turn. not saying you should make zombie blood flavored kool aid but sticking your head in a river and swallowing until youre full wont kill/turn you.
resident evil zombies? fucked. the virus does affect water, see raccoon city for more information.
there are other "categories" but i need to research a bit more.

Pretty much the short version of what I would have typed.

The characters in The Walking Dead are actually all already infected, they just won't turn unless they die, it was a plot point in season 1. I think it said the virus is airborne.

hey Shambler 13/06/18(Tue)05:32 No. 4673 ID: c0873f

according to the new investigations, zombies are able to canoeing

zombies lack the necessary coordination to 'swim.' That said, their gas-bloated, decay-ridden bodies will make for fine floating vessels capable of fording any body of water.

Shambler 13/06/28(Fri)06:18 No. 4694 ID: 9b53dd

They'd need higher cognitive abilities of reasoning and planning to swim. But if they're truly dead and barely functioning muscle memory and minimal coordination, then no, they couldn't swim, but they can just keep right on walking through the lake or river and come out the other side, or pile up on top of each other underwater to reach you if you're in a boat over their heads on the surface. Since they're already dead, they don't need air to breathe, and they're too stupid to know not to walk into water after you.


Your safest bet is drifting about on Lake Superior, where you'll have an endless supply of fresh water to boil & drink, and fish to eat. ...unless the fish are zombified, in which case you're fucked.

The ocean would be a good bet, cause any Z's would be pretty quickly torn to pieces by the saltwater, turbulent surf, and shitload of predators therein. But, good luck getting an on-board desalinization kit to work indefinitely.

Perhaps an Aircraft Carrier or biiiig Sub out at sea when the shit goes down will remain somewhat safe (unless the virus is airborne and a breeze gets it). Some of those motherfuckers are functional cities capable of self sustaining for up to a year. They'd probably sooner blow your ass out of the water than take a chance of letting you anywhere near their vessel though.
