I like to think that the virus is only able to reanimate human beings. Therefore bacteria, insects, other animals aren't zombified, but are simply killed. So the virus kills the bacteria and maggots before they have a chance to consume the corpse.
I kind of like that theory, so that's the one I use when I'm in these "type" of conversations.
On a semi-related note, my bro (police officer) showed me a photo of a deceased individual who had been found in the woods (out in the elements here in FL), & he asked me to guess how long the person had been dead. I thought it HAD to be AT LEAST 8 months, cuz there was literally almost nothing left (& most of it looked to have been just decomposition, as opposed to animal feeding). I was FRAKKING SHOCKED when he told me it was just under 2 weeks.
Yeah, isn't Florida super humid? Can't be very kind to a corpse, that's for sure.
I thought the well zombie turned out to be full of maggots when it split open, but I guess it was just liquid running across the ground. Speaking of which:

Yup, zombie apocalyse, head due north. Places like Siberia would pretty much be zombie free. BTW, reading the comics right now, there's only one man to play "The Governor" Danny Trejo.
I just suck.
"Smashing ratings success."
Dancing with the Stars is the top rated show in the United States (actually, it's one and two). Doesn't mean it's a good show.
Walking Dead is the #3 cable show in the US surrounded by football a wresting.
Yup. "Smashing ratings success." I wonder if Dancing with the Stars has apologists for it as well.
(...and I'm not saying The Walking Dead is a bad show. Most of the opinions here have been pretty thought out and informed, it's not like we're mindlessly bashing it).
