Humans vs. Zombies

Just a quick shout-out to the HvZ kids. They may be sick weirdos, but this game is way cooler than anything I was a part of in college. The Washington Post is running a nice story on the game and the players. The game is apparently very addictive and growing but drawing the ire of some who feel it is insensitive to run about your college campus armed to the teeth with guns (albeit, toy guns) in the wake of the Virginia Tech shootings. Making the whole thing just that much more bizarre is the fact that the first day of the next round of HvZ is April 16th, coinciding with the one year anniversary of the Virginia Tech shootings. Game organizers have decided to make the first day gun-free in observance of the tragedy.

I would wanna be on the side that hangs with girls. Zombies or humans, I don't care, I just wanted chicks when I was in college.

I wish I was back in college. I may have never left Pitzer if this shit was going on.

Insensitive? We are such a nation of pussies.

Bradda: I don't think you would want to be on the side with the girls. Do you really think that any girls that play zombies would be worth a shag unless you were doing backstroke in a bottle of Jack? Oh wait my gf would play this game. Fuck!
