The Power of the Dog.  All-star cast but Benedict Cumberbatch is meant to be esp good.  Haven't seen it myself yet.

DO ZOMBIES SLEEP?
Posted by: ZRS Staff in PHYSIOLOGY February 8, 2011 11 Comments

It stands to reason that zombies must decay at a considerably slower rate than humans if they are to represent a credible threat to civilization.  Now, ZRS Researcher Dave Cogan offers one compelling theory of how this longevity might be accomplished: Sleep.

Cogan sites a groundbreaking sleep experiment from the University of Chicago proving that after 30 days of total sleep deprivation, a seemingly healthy rat will drop dead. In fact, all complex animated creatures – humans, rats, sheep, cockroaches – need some form of regular sleep cycle to stay alive.

He goes on to suggest that zombies could slow their cellular breakdown by mimicking the survival techniques of the living.  However, Cogan notes that this doesn’t necessarily mean a traditional, tucked-in-bed, eight hour recharge for our undead friends:

“Think of it as the standby mode on your computer.  It hasn’t shut down completely, but rather is in a holding pattern, allowing the machine to last longer and run more efficiently when booted back up.  Many insects and fish species act similarly, and so too may zombies.”

So the next time you spot a zombie milling about aimlessly, don’t just assume its too stupid or slow to do anything else.  Maybe its just recharging so it can be refreshed and ready when the next tasty meal happens by.

Food for thought.

Check out 'Old Henry' (2021).  Looks good and violent!

Just finished it, not bad, Brokeback Mountain revisited. Cinematography was good. Not over fond of the characters that Jesse Plemons plays, but thought that he was the personification of evil in Breaking Bad.

And each one I've never seen again
I wish, I wish, I wish in vain
That we could sit simply in that room again

I'd give it all gladly if our lives could be like that" BD's Dream

I watched the first hour, boring as Fook, 'Todd' was as bad in it as he was in Breaking Bad.

The Rescue on Disney + about the Thai cave rescue. Rick Staunton and John Volanthen actually take part in the documentary. These two avoid TV cameras like the plague. Top cavers, did a few body recoveries in Irish caves.

Speaking of Brokeback mountain, I only passed one car driving from Shankill to White's Villas,Dalkey, over Killiney hill and I'd swear it was you near Fitzpatrick's. 8)

Probably, ramp central, they just keep adding more, the most hated road for taxi drivers.

I remember following that story very closely Bubba and talking to folk in the cab about it by night, and it was you giving us (the forum) the inside goss about diving and me passing it on to my customers and they almost salivating listening to your/my quotes.
Good result in the end with the 15 young lads all getting out, just a pity that 2 of the divers didn't make it.(R.I.P.)
