Thanks for the post.
LOL@the bit about such life running amok.
Even if it did, how many years would it take for it to develop such a capability? Thousands to millions?

I guess it depends on when they turn the amok gene on.

Most probably it was a reference to the movie, "28 Days". It would be funny if you were correct, though.

Didn't see it. The last zombie film I saw was 'Shawn of the Dead'. Classic!

'Shawn of the Dead' was cool.

The new 'Dawn of the Dead' was awesome, too!
