In this last season, someone cries in every episode.

The living humans, apparently, are immune to things like staph infections and tetanus since they never sterilise anything prior to a medical procedure. This is very well evidenced by the leg amputation Rick performed on the doctor. He used the same blade he'd just killed a hallway full of walkers with to amputate the leg, without cleaning it.

The writers have never gone camping and don't know anything about rudimentary survival skills.

Walkers don't smell, since no one ever seems to be able to smell them coming or when they're close. Even though a rotting human body is not something anyone would ever mistake.

Pistol accuracy is increased in the Walking Dead by both distance and speed of firing. Where-as calculated shots often miss.

Most six shooters have 10 - 20 rounds in them in the Walking Dead universe.

If everyone is already infected with the virus, why does a bite kill someone yet just living day to day does not?

Even in the middle of no where, where no humans had been living, there will be a gathering of walkers directly proportional to the number of survivors. This ratio is usually 3:1 against the living.

Why don't people throw marbles on the ground when being chased by walkers? Actually, throwing anything that would make them stumble would greatly increase the chance of getting away without incident.

Where does all the gas come from that runs all the generators we've seen?
