There are 5 viruses in existence that can cause a human body to undergo internal and external transformations that are similar to what we consider zombies are.
Yes, The Poison of the pufferfish Is one I believe...
I believe so. I'd research into it again but I'm lazy.
I'll just let the curiosity of those who disagree google it. :3
its called Tetrodotoxin, and its also found in the venom of blue ring octopuses as well as lion fishes, its a neurotoxin that when combined with a few other compounds would be able to put one in a zombie like state, cited from a few zombie websites.
but as for forming an army or going solo on the whole apocalypse thing, its really down to personal opinion, would you rather not have to share any of your resources with anyone, but be under constant threat because no one to back you up? or would you rather have people to back you up and look out for each other but have to spend time after time looking for new resources like water, food, guns ammo, medical supplies and such.
i personally would prefer to have as little people with me if zombies were to roam the earth, for various reasons such as being able to conserve resources as well as preventing emotional pain when others die by limiting how many others there are. it also enables us to move more stealthily.
but if we were to either join or form a relatively large force of people, i would encourage that people move in groups of atleast 3, and one must be armed at all times with atleast a gun, the other two can carry a machete or hatchet or anything that could be used for meleeing and cutting.
and constant scouts for resources would be necessary, so that we would be able to stock up on supplies for when we needed them. as for the "fort" itself it would most likely be a small town that we have placed a reinforced wall around with constant 4 hour shifts of patrolling the wall, we would also erect 4 sniper towers for medium to long distance coverage. pretty much akin to the town in the walking dead. except with keeping walkers alive and putting them to fight against unarmed humans for fun, or keeping their heads in jars.
and in either situations i am benefitted so it doesnt really matter
as long as i get to shoot zombies im fine.
