Concurring Opinions » Artificial Agents, Zombies, and Legal Personhood

Zombies look like you and me, and indeed, from our vantage point they are indistinguishable from human persons. But there is one, very important difference: Zombies lack “consciousness.” Zombie neurons fire just like ours. Zombies laugh at jokes, go to work, write screenplays (unless they are on strike), get into fights, have sex, and go to Milk and Honey for drinks. Just like us. But zombies do not have a conscious experience of finding jokes funny.

Top Ten Headshots in a Zombie Movie

Top Ten Headshots in a Zombie Movie | Zombie Mania | Scoop.it

What is the best part about a zombie movie? Some say it’s the fiendish way in which the living get torn apart and eaten by the dead. Those in favour of the human race will say it’s the creative and gruesome ways that we dispatch the re-animated. Personally, I don’t really care, as long as there are copious amounts of gore and bloodshed. However, in deference to the living, I present my list of top ten headshots in a zombie movie. Some are not the traditional bullet or shotgun blast, but they get the job done.
