    Samantha & Hope

    I do not feel like a Lizzy & Nick Rivers link is too far out there. Although it could be misdirection for people like me that grab every lose thread and try to link them, but I do not think it is another Puck & Puck incident.
    Never gonna let him live down the two Pucks, eh? And that was just a simple name fuck-up!

    Hmmmmmm..... this would help support the close 'family ties' that seem to be evident in the story (and implausible, given the population, at least initially), but contradicted by evidence such as Victor freaking out on the gas near ground zero, while Saul was not. But you did say partial resistance...

    Interesting theory, but too far down the rabbit hole for me at this time...

    I can't wait for how intense the tunnel situation is gonna be. Man oh man nothing freakier than a tunnel full of zanies pitch black. My guess there are gonna be tunnels under the colony Dunbar Kane hospital all over.

    Sounds like Datu is experiencing dissociative feelings, or a detachment from his own self, when he talks about watching from the back of his mind.

    Just for kicks
    : There is an interesting connection to Haitian Voodoo zombies and dissociative drugs. One ingredient found in the zombie powder by Dr. Wade Davis (The Serpent and the Rainbow) was tetrodotoxin, found in puffer fish. The other was the plant datura or jimsonweed (Zombie Cucumber). This plants can make a person prone to suggestion in addition to dissociative feelings. http://zombie.wikia.com/wiki/Zombies

    Now, just waiting for someone to make a connection based on the fact that the first four letters of datura are d,a,t and u.

    Assuming I get out of work on time tonight, I'll have a metric butt ton to say on the fan cast live feed tonight. I've been reserving most of my thoughts for that. But, since you want to be a jerk about it...

    your again, taking my words to literally. Tell me what author you can jump on a forum and easily interact with? Tell me which ones you can say you talk to in a forum chatbox pretty much everyday if you really wanted? I'm not saying any of this is bad, and were getting drasticly off topic here...but my opinion "knowing" the author colors your opinion of the material. Period.

    Do I remember correctly that the baby is due in three weeks? If that's the case, the baby should be fully "baked". I'm a father of three (plus one in the oven), and I can assure folks that doctors and midwives tell parents that at 37 weeks (3 weeks before full term), the green light is given. Any time after that is not considered premature.

    Two other points not yet brought up:

    Michael's Not Stupid!
    He makes this point twice to Victor when voicing his plans about the church surveillance, which kinda makes me think he is overcompensating for some inner doubts about his leadership skills. I noticed this was similar to how CJ several times makes the point about how 'selfless' her actions are, perhaps because of accusations, but also perhaps because of some inner doubts of her own in terms of whether or not she is a selfish leader. In this sense (the self-doubt), Michael and CJ have something in common.

    To then to kick it up to a Meta-Psycho-Analytical framework, I would say that, given his status as the author and director (i.e., 'leader') of this story, and given that his two central 'leader' characters are both plagued with self-doubt.... I posit my theory that Kc himself is a depressed and lonely man possessed with self-loathing and inner torment.

    Multiple Zombie Languages?
    Anyone else notice that Datu only responded to CERTAIN Zombiglyphs, but not all of them? Grog has probably got ten thousand tin hat theories as to why, but here's mine: certain glyphs are oriented as commands towards certain types of zombies-- runners, jumpers, behemoths, little ones, etc. They don't all speak the same language, but rather different variants of Zombiglyph language... Chew on that one for a bit, you wearing bastards!

    Or a Snickers. Those work too.

    It is for this very reason that when I am doing my research, that I can and do get a little fast and loose with facts and figures. I don't recall any particular specifics, but it has happened more than once. I will be chasing down and following paths of research through Wikipedia and various other outlets online and occasionally hit a wall of mights, kindof's, sortof's, and/or maybe's. Given this is in a fictional context... #becausezombies, I try to not feel bad about a little fudging when I try to contextualize my information in a way so makes sense in the story and forms a consistent and coherent hypothesis.

    Hey, get a load of this. Guess who started writing again and has a spot in the fan fiction subforum?
