    Hey this is different from the post-live streaming Q&A right? This is your next official podcast episode, Red Beard? I'm glad you guys are still going to keep recording episodes even after the show is done. Can't wait to listen to it and to find out what your and Mick's ratings were. Well, I guess I already know yours since they've been the same for each episode. But Mick better start handing out those 5.0 ratings again. He's been quite stingy with them.

    I think using any form of logic, we can derive that whilst Ink made LA and the surrounding area pretty awful, there would have been similar archetypal characters across the globe. It seems almost of though Ink was more like an obsessive rather than a genius that saw it coming. There are plenty of these around (all the end is nigh types) along with all of the actual geniuses or people with slight genetic defects that would make them almost immune from the virus (28 days later). I would almost bet that each continent would have its own special types either from environment influence or from the regions own 'Ink'. Lets face it, as soon as anything happens, people love to experiment with it. And we all secretly have the maniacal laugh hidden away.

    Not so sure about that. Look at all of the things that took place for Ink to take advantage of the situation.
    1. The smarter you are in life..... Ink was one smart cookie. Extremely smart. A LOT of that held over into his transformation. Million to one odds.
    2. He just happened to have the one symbol tattooed on him that that would protect him. Seven billion to one odds.
    3. Smart guy? CHECK. Protection symbol? CHECK. Determining that one of your protection symbols actually worked? What are the odds?
    4. Smart, able to manipulate other zombies AND create Super-zombie zombies.....


    To sum up the odds against this happening elsewhere I'll offer a lame joke told to me by a Math professor: When a statistician passes the airport security check, they discover a bomb in his bag. He explains. "Statistics shows that the probability of a bomb being on an airplane is 1/1000000. However, the chance that there are two bombs at one plane is 1/1000000000000. So, I am much safer..."

    First off....great joke and pretty sensible if you ask me.


    Yes Ink was amazingly smart, not smart enough not to be caught by the cops it seems but smart non the less. There are/must be many much smarter than Ink, yes odds of these surviving due to well lets face it most genius generally are not fit enough to survive the apocalypse, to go along with the "the smarter you are in life" phrase that must be mean that there are some extremely smart zombies running around or rolling around in the case of Prof. Hawkins. Potentially smart enough to not need the symbol tattooed on them but smart enough to cause plenty of issues for any local survivors. From what is seems that zombies are able to learn and adapt, rather than just being mindless animals or else they would not be able to take orders from Ink in the first place. Therefore genius zombies would again be able to learn perhaps beyond the point of needing the symbols at all. Its a working theory I know but one that I feel has some evidence within the WA world. (zombie hiding behind the counter when they try to tag them or the radon labs guy trying to jump Saul, Angel and Burt) I agree that the odds are pretty prolific, but then again we have to remember that according the theory of infinity, all things are infinitely possible. If one version of Ink exists then it is infinitely possible that some other form exists. To quote the great John Hammond (Jurassic Park) "Life will find a way"

    During the finale Q/A, I think KC said his preference is to write about places he knows about firsthand, so any WA stories happening in the UK would need to hold off until he gets a chance to visit there. How about a place he does know about, like Iraq? Even though the U.S.'s formal involvement there is over, there must still be military personnel stationed there. Having a zombie story take place outside of the typical first world settings would be novel, especially in a place that already is unstable to begin with. I totally could see a way to tie it in to the main story as perhaps the side story could be told from the perspective of a friend of Michael's stlll in Iraq at the time of the infection being released. Of course, now would not be the best time considering the real world horrors going on over there in the Kurdish region.

    Can someone(Or thing) learn beyond the symbols? They can. In fact, Randy sort of did. If he was the one marking them- he would have to have some semblance of control over it.

    I should have remembered Randy! Thanks KC, But then I ask, why did Randy have the control over it? He was not shown to be extremely smart before or have any indication towards knowledge of these things. I would assume that Ink gave him the ability to think for himself and then taught him the importance of the symbols?
