hmm i wonder what the coins are for…
That’s actually a Jewish tradition. Also they are stones not coins.
Those are stones. you leave them to pay respect. I believe.
its an old tradition to leave a coin (or small stone/other small object) on a gravestone as a way to show the family that you’ve been there to visit, its a way of telling the family “hey someone else cares/remembers etc”
not coins, they are pebbles, as per the jewish tradition.
Well, according to the wiki, and if James is jewish, those are actually stones (I’m guessing from that David’s star, I haven’t noticed until today, and if I did I forgot)
(Take a look at “Visiting the gravesite”)
Also, the title
James looks… manlier… can zombies grow/lose weight etc?
If they can gain weight, it’s going to be a negligable amount, since their bodies are still only struggling to stay alive. Their metabolism doesn’t quite match human metabolism, some things regenerate while others don’t.
“Remains with us even in death.”
I get the funny side of this.
Gotta say, that pun got me.
Boy, you bein followed.
I like the tradition of leaving stones. Also, so he’s 25 then… Though depending on how long it’s been since his “funeral” he could be 26 now. Nice to have a solid age. And he’s a Pisces, like me! Woot!
But that brings up the important question. Do zombies, technically, age? Do they adopt a new age(happy death day to you…)?
All these questions.
Coins are left at the head stone of soldiers, stones for Jews. The coins were part remembrance of the soldier, but also to help pay the family for the cost of the funeral and everything. It is a pretty old tradition amongst soldiers to leave a coin.
I am under the impression that zombie bodies do not regenerate at all, they just rot, never healing. However, they need energy to move around, so they must have some sort of metabolism to digest food. That doesn’t answer the question if they can store energy as fat or not, though it seems plausible that they can lose weight.
One thing that is certainly different about zombies is hydration. Without a working immune system fungi would grow on and in them fi they were too moist, so it is better for a zombie to be dehydrated and mummified; which begs the question how ATP gets to the muscles.
