Man shoots girlfriend over likelihood of a zombie outbreak

Police in New York state said a man shot his girlfriend during a fight about whether a zombie outbreak as seen on AMC’s “The Walking Dead” could actually occur.

Nassau County Detective Lt. Raymond Cote said Jared Gurman…argued via text messages with his girlfriend, Jessica Gelderman…just after 2:30 a.m. Monday about the possibility of a zombie apocalypse as depicted on the AMC series…

“He feels strongly about the possibility that some military mishap could occur. She thinks it’s ridiculous,” ABC News quoted Cote as saying. “She was not taking him seriously or taking the show as seriously as he does.”

Cote said Gelderman became worried about Gurman as the argument became heated and decided to go to his Williston Park home to calm him down, the report said.

Gelderman attempted to talk to Gurman and enter his home, but he shot her in the back with a .22-caliber rifle, police said.

Gurman drove Gelderman to the hospital, where she was treated for a shattered rib, a pierced lung and a pierced diaphragm.

Gurman was charged with attempted murder.

Ever know anyone who couldn’t see the difference between movies and TV show – and reality?

When I was still involved with competitive racquet sports back East, I used to work out with a guy who was getting ready to change his name to Conan the Barbarian. Part of his preparation for metamorphosis. Till Arnold beat him to it.

    A great, and little known musician Col. Bruce Hampton has a song “bassically Frightened” where he recounts (an ever changing” list of things he is frightened of. One of the constants seems to be “…of people that think TV is real”

    The 2:30 timestamp tends to make me think either alcohol, or some sort of speed drug (or both)was involved…. (but maybe I’m just getting old- thats 4 +/- hrs past my bedtime…)
