Zombie Cliche Lookout: Breaking Point
When people have a belief, they tend to treat it pretty seriously. There’s no point in being committed to a belief system if you’re going to be silly about it, right? Now most people can talk rationally about their beliefs, and even take a bit of good-natured ball busting from the non-believers. But then there are those people are take their believe to excited new levels of crazines. For some reason, those people also tend to stick to the less common beliefs (UFO trailing behind an asteroid, Jim Jones is God, etc.).
Should you be so fool hardy as to challenge or insult those beliefs, you’d better be prepared to deal with the repercussions, which are likely to be immediate and severe.
About this Episode:
I really had a lot of fun with this last panel. I think I took about a dozen shots of that smack from various angels and focal points. There’s nothing like a good hard slap to the face to break up the tension a bit.
That’s right, I’m a grown-ass man who spends his time making his LEGOs smack each other and filming the results. Jealous?
Discussion Question: Dealing with Irrational People
Even if the zombies never show up, we’re going to have to deal with people who behave irrationally, and there are a lot of them. In a disaster scenario, those irrationalities are just going to get turned up to eleven. So how do you typically deal with people who aren’t quite keeping things reasonable? And what happens when those same people get their actions magnified several-fold by some sort of disaster (zombie-related or otherwise)?
Personally, I like to avoid these people are much as possible. I’m generally not much of a “people person”, so I find that just circumventing them is the best course of action. Of course that’s not likely to work when I’m barricaded inside an old farm house with such a person, with dozens of zombies pounding on the doors and windows.
