Has anybody noticed that Zombies multiply in an exponential manner?
Btw, I'm new!
Thats because Zombies are in the rabbit family.
wouldn't they produce like a fibonacci sequence then?
A logistic model should take over, as soon as they conquer the planet. You know, zombies always kind of pile up.
I think it is mostly because it doesn't take 2 zombies to produce a new zombie. All a zombie has to do to produce a new zombie is bite a human. Where as 2 humans have to have relations in order to produce 1 new human.
Start with one zombie, that zombie bites a human and now there are two zombies, those two zombies each bite one human each now you have 4. those 4 zombies bite 1 human each, now you have 8 zombies. Repeat, now 16 zombies, then 32, etc.
I have a question! When did a "zombie biting a person produces a new zombie" pop up? I thought that was werewolves. Zombies are created by Voodoo.
Afaik zobies arise from the dead by vodoo and will infect their victim by killing it so it becomes a zombie in turn. Werewolfes cannot infect people afaik. Vampires hoewever...
Oh dang, now the population model needs to be stratified by species: humans, zombies, werewolves, vampires... What next? Age groups? Tax levels?
Sigh. You haven't seen many zombie movies, have you?
Actually you can blame Hollywood for that. Originally Zombies were just the animated dead body and slave of some witch doctor, but now a days they can infect ,such is artistic license. And werewolves infect others with a bite sometimes too, but again there usually more to do with the Dark Satanic arts. Vampires do too, but then they pretty much always have.
You are being unkind to the werewolves. That their bite is infectious is a modern invention.
Here's a bit of the legends, from wikipedia:
Thanks, Schrodinger's dog, I rather suspected that. Arildno, I hope I won't get in trouble with the werewolf anti-defamation league!
Zombies just seem to multiply in an exponential manner. It's because they use an utterly antiquated notation - it's dead, really, no one else uses it. And complicated - you really need to have eight brains to understand it.⚛
You know, it really does seem to depend on the type of zombie you are referring to.
People, people, please. We all know that zombies arose from the headcrabs unleashed onto our planet after we lost the seven hour war.
Since we are talking about creating more zombies... what is the gestation period of a zombie? If we consider their "reproductive" rate it must be shorter than that of a lagomorph to see the population explosions Hollywood depicts. We all know Hollywood would never commit any sort of inaccuracy.
Rabbit fun-fact: they are incapable of vomiting
Well, it really depends on the type of zombie.
You could be talking about the zombies in Dawn of the Dead in which a bite would make another zombie, or you could be talking about 'reanimated' zombies that do not reproduce through biting.
I'd think their reproductive time-span is quite short, haven't you seen how fast they multiply in the movies?
But I have a question, when do we have to take global warming in consideration?
