Things I don't know about Zombies

I hate to admit it, but my preparedness for a Zombie attack is not very complete yet. In fact there are several things I just don't have any clue about.

Some of them are:
Can a Zombie drown?
Is it possible for a shark to become infected by a Zombie?
Do Zombies need to sleep?
How long can a Zombie live without feeding?
Is tear gas an effective deterrent? Bear spray?
What would happen if Superman was infected by a Zombie? (This might be a FAWM song!)

(Yes, I'm treating "Zombie" as a proper noun and capitalizing it as such.)

    Let me assist.

    Zombies cannot drown, excepting when drowning would destroy their brain. The only way to kill a zombie is by destroying the brain. A lot of infections occur when swimmers enter zombie infested waters.

    Sharks no. Bears yes. Scientists don't know why this is. Probably a mammalian virus, but dogs don't zombify. There have been rumors of zombie pigs.

    Zombies do not need sleep. But they are cold blooded and they will freeze/become very slow as temps dip to near or below freezing. This is why some people still live in northern climates, so they can enjoy part of the year Zombie free. In fact, next week I am going x-country skiing/frozen zombie head smashing.

    Zombies decay at the same rate as corpses, with the exception of the brain. A severed zombie head can survive indefinitely provided the brain is intact.

    Many things will deter a Zombie, but only destroying the brain will kill it. The urge to feed on flesh and brains overwhelms any pain or fear response, however, and no deterrent is fail safe or permanent. Bear spray is good on zombie bears, to allow a few extra seconds to escape. But it also makes them real mad.

    Superman does not exist.

    Ha. No Superman? That's like saying "Zombies do not exist".
