*** Confirmed as of S8E5, ''The Big Scary You.'' Negan lampshades how dangerous the "guts trick" is, asking if anyone has gotten sick from it, and the end of the episode shows Gabriel with some sort of debilitating illness likely from having to do it.

** WordOfGod is that The Walking Dead takes place in a world where Romero never made films, and as a result zombies never entered mainstream culture.


Added DiffLines:

** They do. For the majority of the series, the prime threat to the survivors are ''other survivors'', not zombies. There are multiple communities that are virtually entirely zombie-free, other than the occasional wandering walker that makes its way in.


Added DiffLines:

** The group doesn't know what Canada's condition is like. For all anyone knows, Canada could be ''worse'' than the US. And while the cold slows down zombies, it would also preserve them as well. Many zombies in Virginia are already reaching a point where they are decaying so much that they are falling apart, but in the colder parts of Canada that likely isn't happening, meaning zombies will be a threat for much longer.


Added DiffLines:

** Disease. You'd be covering yourself in rotten human blood and gore; there's a massive number of very fatal diseases you could pick up from such a thing. Not to mention any blood-transmitted diseases such as HIV. It is a huge risk to your health to cover yourself in that kind of gore, so it is only used when absolutely necessary.


Added DiffLines:

** The bite disease and the reanimation disease are two different diseases. The bite disease is only transmitted via bite from a walker, and everyone is already infected with the reanimation disease. Having sex with someone who was bitten would not transmit anything.


Added DiffLines:

** Some people are just naturally larger than others. Regardless, we don't see many truly obese people in the TWD universe; the only notable one was Fat Joey, who worked for the Saviors, which is a community that allows people to purchase items with points earned. He was free to eat as much as he could afford, and it was nobody else's business because it was how he chose to spend his pay.

* How did Michonne get her katanas? The comic explanation makes no sense, the katanas that a regular teenage boy would have would be very brittle and shatter after the third blow. And the TV show gives no other explanation on how Michonne got her katanas.

Added DiffLines:

** A couple reasons. Firstly, without zombie media in their world, the creatures haven't been analyzed by weapons experts who can think up the best devices for killing zombies, not people, which the more common weapons are better at. Also, even if you did know a spear or bow would be more useful, you'd still probably gravitate to a gun or sword out of seeming conviencence.

** Key word is airborne, meaning it was inhaled. It would need to infect people before their death, for them to be infected with the virus. If you dug up a body that had died before the virus, that had not inhaled the virus when they were alive, that dead body would not be infected by the virus (and thus rise) because that dead body could not inhale the virus and could not be infected by it. By the same reasoning, IF there were someone somewhere that was somehow able to be in an airtight structure from the outbreak until the current time of the show, and thus were not infected, if they died in that airtight structure they would not turn. AND if their body was found and then taken outside where the virus is floating around in the air, they would still not turn, since they were not infected before death, and could not inhale and process the virus.
