Okay, so last night my wife and I were romping and wrestling about. We commonly enjoy attacking eachother like zombies until we can infect one another with a well placed bite.

...Yeah, we're wierd, but you know...carrying on.

I was going for the winning bite, the classic zombie-on-the-floor-ankle-bite, so I grabbed ahold of her leg and bit into her ankle. She started laughing and screaming and trying to get away, but I made sure to have my jaws clamped on nice and tight and...well, I won.

But as I layed there on the floor, my teeth clenched to her ankle, I stopped and thought "You know...denim is pretty damn tough." I'm quite certain that if I had bit as hard as I could, there was no way I could bite through her pants. Infact, I'm willing to say the pressure of the bite it would take to get through the denim would damage my teeth before I actually punctured the denim.

Any thoughts on this? Anyone here ever...well, bitten through denim?

It made me think that perhaps in areas with a low infestation count, one could go searching for supplies with a bunch of denim on, keeping in mind that although a zombie could rip it off with enough time, a bite may not be too much to worry about.

But then you would like like a broke-dick loser walking around with a full denim outfit on, like it's the 80's and that shit's still cool. (That was cool at one point, right?)

Hey now, those denium jackets with harley like eagles on the back were bad-ass and if you could get the popped collar going with some feathered hair.  Oh yeah, the chicks were all over that action.

Of course, you could end up looking like Jay Leno.

Hmm.  I would say different before wierd.  No, wait, I wouldn't.

Well, if you had actually gone in for the killing bite, then you would've bit harder and, regardless of denim, go into the skin.  I can't really explain, as I am really tired, but the jaw muscles--coupled with a pair of sharp rows--would be able to get a sizable chunk out of a person.

I would imagine.

well since zombies dont really "feel" pain per se, they wouldnt stop because it made their teeth hurt. but it wuld be harder for them to bite through. so i wouldnt say zombie proof, but perhaps zombie resistant, like leather, except less.

If a zombie bites into your leg while you have on heavy denim jeans, don't automaticely assume that you are infected.  Kill the attached zombie or knock if off your leg as soon as you can and after the fight check to see if the bite broke through your skin or not.  I don't really think that they could bite clean through denim, but would create a pressure wound and infected saliva/blood might seep through and get you...

And people say I'm crazy. Ha!  I have visual proof that the US is equipping it's field agents with denim.  Below is a field agent at a meet with an undercover monkey operative in preperation for the zombie invasion.



This kinda of truth cannot be made up, or hidden.

Peace out.

During the zombie pandemic, the army will start issuing out Canadian Tuxedos.  Oh yeah, by the way, you're very weird to play zombie games with your wife.  Might wanna get that checked out.

4 things...

1. I'd rather be eaten by a zombie, than wear full denim.

2. Getting your ankle bit is for nubcakes, cuz you should be wearing combat boots, or another form of lower leg protection.

3. Denim would probably protect from a zombie bite, if you were to be attacked by a shuffler. They don't really maintain muscle strength, and really can only rely on (a) sheer numbers; or (b) element of surprise. Of course, there is never an excuse for becoming shuffler food. Sprinters on the other hand, seem to retain use of their muscles, and are can be seem even stronger, because of their lack of pain. They will never have to bite you on the ankle, cuz they will be all up in yo grill, munchin' on yo face.

4. When wet, denim is probably the heaviest fabric there is. It also will suck the heat right out of your body. Do yourself a favor. Get some leather and chainmail.

Hahah, it's a good way to keep unchecked aggression under wraps. After the game goes on long enough, if your significant other stays in zombie mode for long enough and you've got them pinned in a no-bite position you start to get creeped out by thoughts like "What would I really do right now if she was infected?"

I'd have to agree with ya Phil, aside from the whole chainmail thing. The owner of our tattoo shop brought in some kind of crazy chainmail suit because she's all crazy about that renaissance era stuff. So I strap the bad boy on and I gotta say...aside from looking like a total dick-hole, I noticed my running speed was severely compromised. But i'd assume one could build it out of a good, sturdy but lightweight metal instead of...whatever heavy ass metal that was.

just chiming in for a moment begging your collective pardons, i own a shirt of chainmail out of battle ready steel and while the whole weight thing is a bitch at first, wearing it in for a couple days sorts that right out, i wear mine to university so much that its like a second skin (dont ask why), plus if you layer it correctly with clothing it actually keeps you warmer while remaining breathable plus its easy as hell to clean (rust, corrosion etc). another good note is that it helps excersize the load bearing shoulder muscles so you end up fitter for your troubles.

in short wear it in like a pair of new boots and its all good


on a side note aluminium chainmail is available but at roughly double the cost of regular chainmail around 150/ 200 quid and its really not as durable

A Quid is slang for a Brittish Pound which with current exchange rates £1 = $1.44

I thought it was too, atleast when I was in London back in September it sure seemed to be worse.  Website I looked up the rate on might be wrong, or maybe with this economic meltdown has brought the rate a bit closer.

I always thought the proper name for British currency was 'sterling pound'.  At least, that's how it used to be reported in Mexico when I was growing up to differintiate it from other pound currencies.  Or maybe it was to differintiate it from the measurement of weight?

Man, I remember years and years ago, when I ordered my first CD offline because it was nowhere to be found in america...the CD (Cradle of Filth; Cruelty and the Beast) was going for like 20 pounds and that amounted out to $9 american. Funny how it flipped completely the other way around.

You may not.  Wasn't there some grumblings recently about Italy and Germany both pulling out of the Euro currency and going back to their own money.
