    Broken Gestalt

      They learn the intricate details of one aspect of the system, then proceed to claim knowledge of the entire system. This is contradictory to everything knowledge teaches - that the more you learn, the more you realize you do not know.  The strong zombie misses this...

    They Reach That Plateau

      Even the relatively insightful zombie will reach that plateau where they'll just run out of insight.  Like a vehicle with a set of inappropriately low gears, they'll sprint to a certain speed with quickness then top out at 80 mph.  Just a hair above the speed...

    Their "circle" Gives Them Away.

    They say "even a blind squirrel finds a nut sometimes". So goes it with the words that come out of the zombie's mouth. Careful that you do not misclassify a zombie based on one or two sentences that appeal to your philosophies. There are 'strong zombies' that are very...

    Zombies Always Agree.

    Mediocre Skills Are Beyond Their Comprehension

    I get so tired of being told I need help doing something, or that some project requires x number of people, "it's too much for one person", etc. The truth of the matter is that the task would be done much more thoroughly and efficiently if I were to do it myself with no one else...

    Void Creates Vacuum

    When things are missing, the void left will create a vacuum.  This vacuum is unselective in what it sucks in to fill the void.  Meaningless things will be sucked into the void.

    Democrats, Republicans, Independents.

    They are tricked by their own insecurities. They choose the "lesser of two evils" and are proud of their choice in dysfunctional candidates. Notice me. Heed what I say. I know who's better. I am zombie. Here me babble.

    Today's Zombie 4/21/10

      As I'm leaving my neighborhood, I come upon a car.  He approaches an intersection.  He has no stop sign; the other road does.  As he enters the middle of the intersection, he looks to his right to see if anyone is coming.

    Sheeple.

    I have always called them that.  This group's icon expresses my worldview more eloquently than anything I can write.  My greatest fear is that I am becomming infected by the zombie contagion.  It's so ******* virulent.
