Anyway, because I didn't start this blog to outline the specifics, I'd like to turn this to a more general topic: Zombies. Seriously though, it seems as though some of you people just can't stay dead, and I'd like to explore why that is. We all know the Tall Guy likes hunting his prey for a very long time before moving in for the kill, some people have gone years before finally being killed, now I have several theories on why that is, but I'm not exactly at liberty to discuss all of them, so we'll just focus on how this effects someone's survival chances in other high risk scenarios. It seems like many times He will just leave someone for dead rather than killing them himself, giving them a chance to survive exclusively through the force of will. I believe that being hunted by such a fear inducing creature gives people a sense of determination that fades only when faced by the Man himself. It is this new found determination and desperation that allows people to push through events that would have left them helpless and resigned to their fates prior to their stalking. In short, because they have already been through so much, surviving some of these incredible circumstances isn't as big of a leap as it once was.
Right, so I'm finally updating this, good for me, I need to get a cookie later to celebrate. But first I'd like to go ahead and reiterate what some of the comments below have already said: Many times we have no way of knowing weather or not a person really died. Heck in the Messenger's List of the Deceased there is a second list filled with people who might be dead. It can be difficult confirming the death of a hunted (new term of mine, it's faster than typing runner/fighter, this is the only time I'll clarify), so many people are spread out, and when the one unifier we have is the interned it can be tough finding someone who actually identify the body. Also I'd like to refer you back to the sacred Rule #1, while this is for me, it is important to remember that just because one person says they saw someone die doesn't mean you can trust them on that. It's things like this that make it hard to be sure of a persons death, and thus make it more common to see such people return.
Also I'd like to address the possibility of supernatural resurrections. Yes, yes, let us all sigh and roll our eyes at this thoroughly absurd notion, in fact, lets do it in unison 3 ... 2 ... 1 ... go. Good, now that that's out of the way let's all remember what we're dealing with here: a supernatural creature whose origins, motives, and powers are largely unknown. Things like someone genuinely coming back from the dead should surprise none of us at this point, as virtually everything else has been done already. Of course the ramifications of such developments should not be taken lightly, either, anyone who has truly been revived has likely undergone a tremendous psychological metamorphosis, regardless of weather or not that was the intention of the resurrector.
Well, that's all I've got, sorry it wasn't full of danger, excitement, and intrigue, but hey, this is an analysis blog, not an action one. I promise if I ever decide to be interesting again I'll let you guys know. I hope it was at least informative, and not mind-numbingly boring.
See you around
