    Ever Feel like You're Surrounded by Zombies IRL?

    Maybe not as self-explanatory as it sounds.

    Do you ever feel like the world is already overrun by zombies?

    And that instead of violently chasing you down, everyone, your friends, family, co-workers, random people on the street are slowly turning against you to destroy you very slowly and systematically rather than quickly and bloodily?

    Sometimes I think real life is more brutal than being chased after for your vitals.

    I'm surrounded by zombies.

    Is anyone else?

    I get that at WalMart pretty badly. You can actually see people not thinking.

    Never? Not even a place like Walmart? We do not have Walmarts in the UK, but we have our equivalents.

    I like it when 2 trolleys cannot pass each other and neither will move aside. stubborn and stupid.

    I'm not sure about actual zombies, but I do know a lot of people who seem to be completely brain-dead...

    ...And most of them are WoW players.

    Are you socially withdrawn? Do you have blunted emotions? Do you often lack motivation or focus? Does your family have a history of mental disorders?

    If you've answered yes to these questions OP then congratulations you may be a good candidate for paranoid schizophrenia! I'd recommend you proceed to the nearest psychiatric institution, however I doubt you find that a good suggestion as those people are also out to break you down slowly.

    Big city syndrome.I noticed too that inhabitants of big cities look/act like zombies.1 of the reasons why I prefer to live in a small city(we have everything whats needed and life is so much better).

    Nah, it's reciprocal. I'm not saying I don't have the same effect on other people to a small extent. I was kind of waiting for someone to mention mental health. I'm totally fine, it just seems like absolutely everyone is doing very real albeit small things to undermine me. I'm not being stalked by aliens or receiving death threats from government workers in suits or anything like that. It's more like everyone is blowing me off lately for no legitimate reason, friends and family included. Maybe it's just the month of the year.

    Or who knows, maybe I'm just missing a neurotransmitter. I'm coherent at least...

    O well, time to watch some more Kubrick...

    I can go Zombie mode too.

    I put on my earphones, browse through the music and locate DUBSTEP.
    Then I zone out of the real world, and zone in again when I'm done wasting my time buying stuff in a mall or travelling by public transport.

    Drones unite!

    Well, I see a lot of bored people that act like zombies, but with the life that we usually have in a city, full of routine...boring stuff...can't blame them =/

    As for the savage part. Yeah...this is a jungle. In work they'll try to eat you alive to get a promotion, and most people don't think twice before screwing someone over...even "friends". That's the sad part :S

    I go zombie mode in the morning. The first hour or so after waking up...I'm just auto pilot.
