* Speaking of "Popular", why is Little Rock talking about HannahMontana? Shouldn't a Miley Cyrus song have been playing? Not that I'm complaining. Any excuse to hear Kristen Chenowith singing...
** In-universe answer: A Miley Cyrus song must have been on right before "Popular". Real answer: Disney probably wouldn't give the rights to a HannahMontana song to an R-rated movie.

** In any case, Rule #1 ''is'' Cardio. Presumably in addition to play WoW and eating junk food, he also hit the treadmill or went for runs some time between hanging out in his apartment or going to classes, especially if that was his ''first'' rule. It could have owed to his survival during the early confusion.

** The biggest problem with bathrooms would be the fact that you only have one exit, so even if you clear the room first, you could still get penned in easily. Maybe find a shovel instead and crap in open fields.

***So... the movie says that they are undead, and Columbus even says "You sometimes have to make sure the undead remain dead", and their look and behavior is that of walking corpses... but we have to assume they are living berserkers because...? If the movie clearly says and shows them to be dead then they are, it not the movie not taking itself seriously is FanWank having a weird theory that is never confirm in-universe. Occam's razor also apply to movies. The most logical explanation on why they survive something as destructive as a shotgun's shot in the chest is that they are traditional walking corpses and not supernaturally resistant berserkers. The mad cow disease [disregarging the fact that Columbus is not a scientist and may not even know what he's talking] does not mean the zombies are not of the undead variaty as there is even a trope for that PlagueZombie.

** No, you're just turning wherever you're using the bucket into a bathroom. When using an actual bathroom you can at least do your best to secure it first, even if it's not foolproof.

*** You missed Columbus saying that the zombie virus is a mutant strain of Mad Cow at the start of the movie. The explanation we're given is that they're basically berserkers, as evidenced by the fact that things other than a blow to the head will put them down, it's just that the brain destruction makes absolutely sure they'd stay down. Anything actually undead-like in their appearance or behavior is because the movie's not taking itself that seriously.

** Because their characters had developed beyond being selfish people that would do stuff like that? A major aspect of the movie is that everyone undergoes character development. Columbus learns that there are times you have to be a hero, Tallahassee decides that there's things worth fighting for that aren't a twinkie, and Wichita and Little Rock learn to care about someone other than each other.
