[[spoiler: Except, the Spiders turn out to be sentient and point out that a lot of humans have them inside them without any adverse effects. In short, making Spider-Brain not a big deal. A quality our antiheroes aren't quite sure how to deal with.]]

* TakeThat: It's an easy shot, but the way in which Daryl's post on Free Republic conveniently edits his encounter with John is almost identical to how a lot of outside observers figure that the regulars on that forum edit ''everything'' that happens to them.

** Survivalists and people with a fetish for the apocalypse are made targets, regardless of what their particular flavor is. The zombie apocalypse fanboys are a bunch of clueless geeks who [[RecklessGunUsage have no idea how to properly handle their weapons]], and in the end accomplish nothing more than [[spoiler: killing a bunch of innocent people before getting effortlessly massacred by the real monsters]]. The Free Republic guy likes to pose as a survivalist to his online buddies, but the encounter with him shows him as a posturing fake. The militias going around town trying to take care of the problem on their own probably did nothing but kill innocent people or each other, considering that they racked up a body count in the hundreds and [[spoiler:the infection was never bigger than about 70 people]]. And the bit where David sees what happens when the US Army takes on the monsters makes it pretty clear that the idea of the Army being overrun by zombies, or ordinary people succeeding in surviving and thriving against a threat that the Army's resources fail against is really pretty laughable.
