So, after a series of articles in the news, all I hear on the internet is two words... "ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE".  Sounds pretty crazy, possibly fabricated.  Though, we've had some pretty weird cases that remind me of the events leading up to Resident Evil 1 and 2 (the video games of course).  Yeah, not creepy in the slightest.  It could be people just dealing with the same old problems and other people warped on drugs... or it could be something else!  Is is just a load of superstition and paranoia?  ... Or is it?

An undead spectre occasionally returning to remind the fandom of its grim existence.

Of course.  After seeing Nash's main show on TGWTG, that seems to be an easy diagnosis for CRAZY.  But, after a series of weird, weird things going on, it's easy to hype up "ZOMG ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE, GUYS!  GRAB YER GUNS!"  But seriously, there's been a lot of strange things going on lately.  I mean, bizarre things happen all the time (fact, stranger than fiction) and people do have overactive imaginations.  Still, it's fun to pretend... right?

I'm starting to see why Nash targets Florida in his show.  It seems that crazy seems to cluster up there (no offense!)  I'm starting to wonder if some new strain of hallucinagenic is spreading.  I mean, stuff like acid makes people do horrible acts... apparently including eating another person's face.  But, on that offhand 1% chance, well...  Ever played Resident Evil 1 and get to that part in the beginning where you see your comrade, "Kennith"?

Anyways, there are plenty of interesting stories that don't even make it on to the news. This weekend a friend of mine was shopping at a Macys and two guys got into a fight in the perfume section. One guy picked the other guy up and slammed him through the display case. People just kept on going about their business while these two guys tried to kill each other.

Yes. I played it for 10 minutes and got bored.

I do, however, have one last lesson on this subject. That last one? The only build in this post that can one-shot average opponents[by dealing twice as much damage as they have HP? I would argue that it is not optimized. Why isn't it optimized? Because it's overkill. Overkill is NOT optimizing. This means that there are portions of this build dedicated to damage which can safely be removed and thrown elsewhere. For example, you probably don't need both Leap Attack AND Headlong Rush at the same time. You could pick up Extra Rage feats for stamina, feats to support AoO effects, feats that work towards potential prestige classes, and so on. However, you could also shift our ability scores around somewhat. I mean, if you're getting results like that with 16 starting Strength, maybe you can lower it to 14, and free up four points to spend somewhere else - perhaps back into Charisma, giving you some oomph for Intimidating Rage or Imperious Command if you want. You can continue to tune this until it deals "enough" damage - and that "enough" does not need to be "100%". It could easily be, say, 80% (leaving the rest to the team), if your DM is the sort who would ban one-hit killers.

Meh. I'm much more concerned with robots killing off us squishy humans.

Or maybe it's just my futile imagination wanting to be painlessly vaporized instead of mauled and eaten alive.


I think your death at the metllic hands of robots is up to Klirshon.



Machine society would eventually colonise other planets. We might as well keep humanity alive to "work" for the squirrels.


Yes, "work" for the squirrels.

You don't know? You really don't know? Obviously you have suffered a traumatic brain injury. Your carcas will be made into a somewhat nutritional wafer that will then be fed to the other enslaved humans.

No, soylent green was actually nutritional. The Buzzhorn1-wafer is only somewhat nutritional. I'm going to load it with high-fructose corn syrup, artificial coloring, artificial flavoring, trans-fats, and all the other garbage you humans love to gorge yourselves on.

Can you just make it a Buzzhorn1 Twinkie, instead?  That way, it'll stay with me forevah!

Even I am not so cruel an over lord. Seriously, what kind of a jerk would purposefully give a person a twinky to eat? A terrible person that's who!

I survived Section 4 and all I got was this lousy sig Off-topic and going downhill from there
So I'm watching the local news and there is a story about zombie-guy and apperantly he had a run-in with an ex-boxer/MMA fighter a few years ago. The news station doesn't have the interview video up yet, but when it's up, I'll link it. 

You would think that he would've run out of his innards by now.

Wrong guy.  You're thinking of the New Jersey out-testines guy.  The Squirrel lives in Miami, so he was talking about the face-eater.

Yup, and here is the video I was talking about.

She's not bad but what does the forcast have to do with anything?


She was forecasting doom!!! Doom!!!

Not sure why the video I wanted to link isn't linking properly.  


It is linking properly but just isn't linking to what you want it to. The page you linked to rotates videos since it's in the "top videos" section and whatnot.
