*** I myself thought that the zombies in the film were living infected people like the ones in 28 Days Latter, wasn’t untill recently that people told me that they were walking corpses, so yes, the movie is pretty unclear about that regard. The “avoiding the sick” would’ve make more sense in a TechnicallyLivingZombie scenario.

**Also, there are Arab-Israelis too; some of them hold office in government and many, if not all of them, have Palestinian relatives. It will be difficult for practical purposes for the Israeli government, no matter how right-wing (except maybe if the religious ultra-Orthodox are in power) to save only the Jews, what about the Druze, Christians and Muslims that are already Israeli citizens? And once you’re saving everyone Israeli no matter the ethnicity then the next logical step is to include the Palestinians as the difference between them and most non-Jewish Israelis is thin, especially for the practical reasons mentioned above.

*How did that guy in Korea pull out his teeth with his fingers? That is literally impossible, your teeth in your mouth are extremely smooth, and it's impossible to get a grip on it with just your fingers. Seriously. Try, right now, to pull out a tooth with your bare hands, try as hard as you can. This troper guarantees it's impossible to even hold on. If you actually manage to pull out a tooth with your bare hands, I'd like to talk to you about the Avengers initiative.

*Why did they need Gerry to travel around the world to figure out that zombies ignore terminal patients? Considering the ridiculous amount of people with HIV, AIDS, cancer, and other terminal illnesses just in America, you'd think someone would notice that most their friends had been killed by zombies, but their entire support group was just fine. How did nobody notice this? And don't say the cases were too small to be noticed by anyone large scale, considering all it took for Gerry to figure it out was seeing one sick looking kid not get attacked.
*Small one, but how did Gerry hear the counting toy perfectly over all the screaming and rioting in the beginning? That thing should have been pulled from the market for permanently damaging kids ears, because it has to be LOUD.
*Why are both of the children so horrifyingly stupid? In a terrifying situation, a kid is going to react by shutting up and listening to their parents, especially if they know that the parents are the only way out of it, and need to focus. So why is it that when they're trying to get out of Philidalphea, the younger idiot starts distracting her parents by screaming for them to get out of the car, go around to the trunk, and get her blanket, while the older one UNBUCKLES HER SEATBELT WHEN SHE CLEARLY KNOWS THEY ARE VERY LIKELY TO GET IN AN ACCIDENT. That's Darwin Award level stupidity, especially since she looks to be about twelve or so. And how did Gerry remember to grab his younger daughters counting toy, but couldn't take five seconds to grab the inhaler instead?
**And why the hell did the younger one wander off when they were in the apartment building? Any kid that age would be superglued to their parents by that point, but no, she's decided to go off and yell at a door. While standing for some reason with perfect posture several feet from the door, and yelling in a calm monotone. I mean, if they're trying to show that she freaked out and bolted, then she she should have been banging on the door and panicking, but no, this young child ditched her parents to calmly yell at some complete strangers. She's got a death grip on that idiot ball, that's for sure.

*While we're on the subject, why the hell did the solider girl go with them in to B-wing? She was a recent amputee! Her hand got cut off three days ago in an unsterilized, unanesthetized, unprofessional amputation, why is a building full of doctors letting her get out of a bed even? I mean, I get that she's the only solider in the building, but come on! Hell, she should probably be bedridden with an infection, considering Gerry chopped off her hand with an unsterilized instrument, and then she was running around with the wound exposed to air for a while. Whose idea was it to send her straight in to a potential battlefield? Every single person in that lab clearly slept through most of their classes in med school.

*** This troper would like to point out that the Zombie Survival Guide goes over the process of turning literally on the third page. For anyone that doesn't remember, or hasn't read the book, it says that for a standard 23 hour infection, within five hours the victim has a fever, slight dementia, joint pain and vomiting, with numbing, a higher fever, loss of muscle control and increased dementia forming before it's been ten hours. So unless the victims got a really slow burn, they won't be in any state to do anything very soon. Seriously, even if you knew you were terminal and dying, if you had severe dementia, a high fever, couldn't feel your extremities, and was throwing up everywhere, would you be able to run out with an axe and kill some zombies? Even if they were ignoring you, it takes a fair amount of strength and some aim to split open a skull with an axe. Good luck doing that while you can't feel or control your arms, and can't actually remember who you are or what you're doing out there.

*** Or, for that matter, about traumatized survivors deciding the world is doomed and trying to shoot themselves inside a pressurized airliner.

* In addition, what about the thing that led to the zombies swarming? They know the zombies are attracted to sound. Yet the soldiers not only let the people sing loudly, they let one of them take over the loudspeaker to do it even louder! You can't get on the PA at a Wal-Mart that easily. Let alone a military-controlled bastion of humanity where they know sound attracts their greatest threat.
