There you go making sense again! Cut it out! It confuses people!

Ooh please lay off the dramatic.

Bites do kill, there's bacteria in their mouth that hasten the infection thus killing the bitten victims all the faster which upon dying activates the zombie infection. Hence my original and now blown out of proportion post about how despite having cuts and being covered in zombie goo, they don't get sick from it as they would a bite. Rick did cut off the leg to stop that infection from spreading and killing Herschel. That's why I said you are half right, bites don't always result in great blood loss. It's the infection of their bites that kills them.

Exactly.

Remember the guy in Season 1 Jim who got bit, hid it from the group, started to have zombie dreams and acting irrationally (digging several graves) He started to turn but very slowly.

Jim did get bit but that was after he was digging the graves. After the big battle he started going downhill quite quickly with his fever and puke bucket. Then he couldnt stand the pain of riding in the RV and asked to be left on the side of the road.

they cut off Herschels leg to stop the infection that the zombie bite introduced.

Are newborn babies also already infected? Meaning if they die, they will turn?

We don't know for sure since it hasn't been seen, but Lori was worried when she was pregnant that if her baby was stillborn that it would turn inside her. I think that would have been a more "fun" way for her to go. (Ha! I wasn't a Lori fan at all if you can't tell).

Dang! That IS rough! I wasn't a Lori fan either, though, and wasn't sorry when she died.
