    Well, maybe im just the dumb guy in the group, but I don't get either one of these. You could build the knife set for ~150, and how are we sure its actually the game stated? Like I said, I must be the dumbass......

    I saw this on a news article this morning around 11:30 and started watching it. It was going for just under $6,000.

    At 6:20 pm I showed a co worker and I was amazed that it was at $20,000.

    Now at 7:20, an hour later, it's over $32,000.
    The fact that it is selling for that is a "REALLY!?" subject in itself...so, yeah, I think it does belong here, lol

    There's a sucker born every minute, and one for everything ever made.

    I will never spend $30K on some old video game.

    But you better believe I'd spend $20K on restoring a FWD Cadillac if need be

    Luke with a $20,000 budget you can afford to go to Florida and pick up a really nice rust free, well cared for FWD Cadillac and still have mucho bucks left over.

    Re: Really????

    There are no Rust-Free Cadillacs in Florida.

    But I will admit, there is an abundance of FWD DeVilles.

    Too bad they're all A, FWD and B, White.

    But, given that it is Florida, we should expect this type of unnatural thing...

    No, Zombies are NOT meant as a metaphor, but most media in the Horror genre and it's subsequent marketing of film/video games are meant to prey upon some form of fear of the demographic.

    This is also why those like myself do not get startled or affected by horror films (though some of us have been known to enjoy them)

    Our demographic has no cultivated fear.

    Pretty sure that everyone in the auditorium at the Doubletree Orlando last October knew what he was trying to say. If they didn't, they should have put their mobiles down and listened to his discussion of the topic. Not why I was there, of course, but I am very aware that it happened.

    As for a Zombie Apocalypse Kit, those are useless. Zombies, if they existed in a medical fashion (without some form of unusual black magic) would be prone for destruction. Dry weather would destroy them. Wet weather would destroy them. Heat would destroy them...but so would Cold... And their only form of repopulation (to infect humans) is also their only source of food. Not only does this mean that they would eat themselves out of existence, but it also means that to do so, they must continually challenge their greatest enemy. They are destined for failure. Likewise, they would fester, rot and weaken over time. Just using their muscles would weaken them.

    Of course, I base this opinion on my extensive experience with dead bodies.

    Now, if they were magical and returned via some sort of curse or Shamanistic spell, while they would be more challenging, it's not like The Gallowglass or The Nightingales never died off and I would wage that they could handle the situation before common man was any the wiser that these "Zombies" ever came to be. They have one job, but they are quite skilled at it.

    I base that opinion on the other 15% of my lifetime experience (the part that didn't involve dead people)

    But $30,000 is still a great deal for guaranteed survival of Zombies. I suggest everyone here buy said kit.

    Re: Really????

    As of 02:51 Eastern Time, that NES video game is at $60,199.00.

    I didn't know this, but the largest single PayPal transaction can only be $10,000.00. So the guy had mentioned that he'll accept a wire transfer or something. lol

    KOT

    Edit: At 03:43 it's at $88,988.88

    I was referring to the zombie gimmick being used to sell junk like that survival kit.

    I am officially of the opinion that this is some kind of joke or spoof. There's no way a sane person would even bother.
