Herald of the zombie apocolypse?Follow

I don't know what it is about zombies, but to me they are the scariest of horror film creatures. It's not the movies themselves that scare me so much, I think, but the "what if this really happened" idea. I am an adult, and I know that zombies are not real... but sometimes, when it's pitch black out here and I'm alone.... Sometimes it doesn't seem so far fetched. Of course, then my husband gets home, or the sun comes out, and I laugh at myself.

Then something like this happens.

The article wrote:
One man was shot to death by Miami police, and another man is fighting for his life after he was attacked and his face allegedly half eaten, by a naked man on the MacArthur Causeway off ramp, police said.

The bloodshed began about 2 p.m. when a series of gunshots were heard on the ramp, which is along NE 13th Street, just south of The Miami Herald building. Witnesses said a woman saw the two men fighting and flagged down a police officer who was in the area.

The officer, who has not been identified, approached and saw that the naked man was actually chewing the other man’s head, according to witnesses. The officer ordered the naked man to back away, and when he continued the assault, the officer shot him. The attacker continued to eat the man, despite being shot, forcing the officer to continue firing. Witnesses said they heard at least a half dozen shots.


We're doomed....






Or this guy was really really really high. (An update on Huffington Post suggests it was a cocaine psychosis.)

That guy was on a **** load of PCP is my guess, based on a previous case I read about.

Anyway, I fear the Xenomorphs (Aliens) more than zombies, because it's almost impossible to get them all without nuking them. And then if even one survives it will metamorphose into a Queen class, and start a brand new hive somewhere else.

Of course that's the explanation. That's always the explanation. "Oh, they were just really high." "Oh, it's a new strain of the flu virus." Always some excuse to downplay the obvious. And it always starts off slow. One or two isolated cases. And then boom, full blown end of civilization while everyone is lulled into believing it was all just drugs, or a flu.

Probably because enough people did cocaine there in the 80's that it was passed to their kids.

But at least we can nuke them and have it possibly be effective. I'm more worried about Skyline style aliens(not necessarily with the brain fetish, just the tech level) since we'd be pretty well powerless to stop them.

Lately I've been watching The Walking Dead and there's a mod for ArmA2, Day Z that I've been playing, so I think I might have a good shot at surviving the Zombpocalypse.

I have to admit when I read this news story this morning I was a little disturbed. I hope the guy in the hospital does not start eating people. Smiley: eek

The big one, yeah. He can run off and make as much noise as he wants. The little one, I can strap to my back and take with me. Until he grows up a bit and learns to walk on his own. And until I need another distraction.

Add the face-eating man to this story, and it's certainly something to think about.

In essence, we have a robot reporting to us that some kind of hazardous material -- what, we don't know and can't discover -- has been released within a biotechnology research center. The Institute for Genomic Biology has a wide variety of research programs including stuff like "host-microbe systems."

Because if we're going to die, we're going to take as many people as we can with us.

There's also this story, courtesy of NoCal:

ESPN wrote:
Authorities who went to a home near the mouth of the Klamath River on March 21, 2010, found Powell dead on the couch with his chest cut open and his heart, tongue and the skin of his face removed, according to court records.

Wyatt -- naked and covered in blood -- acknowledged that he had killed Powell and cut out his heart and tongue, authorities said.

An autopsy revealed that the organs had been removed while Powell was still alive.
