Outbreak of Zombie Virus
A fake BBC news page has been doing the rounds that describes an outbreak of 'zombism' in a small town in Cambodia:

After death, this virus is able to restart the heart of it’s victim for up to two hours after the initial demise of the person where the individual behaves in extremely violent ways from what is believe to be a combination of brain damage and a chemical released into blood during “resurrection.”

It's a pretty decent looking fake news page, although the url is a dead giveaway (pun intended), as is the awful grammar. The image of the ugly-looking creature comes from a photograph by artist Charlie White that was discussed in the forum last year. (thanks to Chris for the link)

The Rage virus in 28 days later is partialy based on Rabies. And in case you didnt know, Rabies is very real, and can be caught by humans. So personaly, I dont find somthing like this to be so over the top. Though I know this a hoax, duh. Oh and Solanum is the virus featured in Max Brooks zombie books, the Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z, so the guy who mentioned it wasnt actualy being serious. I say, the people who take the people who are joking seriously are the ones who are assholes. Do a little reasearch before you start calling people dumb ass holes for knowingly referencing to a work of fiction.

well I am not sure that real but somewhere in scotland in an lab. there is an man that must actually be dead but his brains has been totally stopped working and his hole body still moves. and he is not eating or something but just doing nothing. and if u touch him you get invected and than you die in a few weeks later.

Belive me or not (most of you probebly won't belive me but it's ok you're the first to apprhend this moment!
I may not be smart , but there are over 200 sensores in a human body
1 of them is the sense of things happeing,
70years ago there were a couple of storyies about zombie attacks, which i presume were fake!
But if these storyies were fake, why right them!
Too scare people?
I say no, there are proof of such virus's like this one, but out of my instinct they are real!
Adhd (a aggresive emotion which apprehends half of you're body)


Tell me now do you belive these are real, if not then be prepared for the future,
we can cure almost everything.
But did you know that virus's also become immune to these cure's and they grow new skills etc..
such as h.i.v and aides.
What will come 3rd, a new virus which can almost wipe all humans out giving them aggresive symptoms and making them half dead!
Abit like you've just woke up, but you're body is dead.... the only thing living is you're brain And like i said, you feel half asleep which means you can't think straight and you would think you are invincble and not know what's going on!
Can this be true?
I don't know i predict so!

It doesn't take that long to catch a cold,
Or catch the birdflue
How long do you think it takes for this virus to spread and sprea through each one of us!
And the worst thing about it is that were not prepared!
quite frankely im scared myself, and no i am not prepared for what's coming because i don't know what to prepare,
People seem half dead to us already, is it catching up has it started?

It only takes a few days for a virus to take out a whole town maybe city!
I advise you to keep clear of this and probebly experiment on this due to the irrages infections which will be spreaded by touch or air!

You people that think zombies are real, you're dumbasses. I always love hearing how people Are "pre-pared." Really, pre-pared? Do you walk around with thousands of rounds, medical supplies, rations, water, etc, etc? Or is that all safetly locked up in your home or shed or wahtever? Give me a break, and what makes you all think that shooting a zombie in the head or anywhere else with a shotgun, or flare gun, or what have you is going to stop them? Is it because that is what the movies show? I'm not against having weapons, or ammo, or food supplies, to a degree. If you think that you are really surivialist, then go to the woods and live off the land for two weeks, or in a city. Really catch squerrials or birds, or eat termites. Just reading about surivialness wont amount to shit. Oh yeah, and when you do your little surival camping trip, dont bring water or food. Learn how to fliter water, cant expect that the water treatment plants and electricaly will last if a suppose invansion happens. Or that gas tanks will contiune to be filled up so you can drive to these safe areas. Give it up, "They," are not that smart, they do not have all the secrets in a folder in a cabinet somewhere just waiting for some ass to find it. THEY are not supper scientist creating such virsus and have UFO's all lined up in some damn warehouse underground.

Playing the waht if game is cool if really goddamn bored, but dont take it seriously, or you'll become one of those guys.

Lol,
That little story made me laugh raspberry

Why are you so botherd.
If zombies arnt real then why take a eppie fit upon it?
LOLLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

There is a disease that acts like zombie... search on google!

But you don't eat people or give them the disease.
Don't be so stupid aha.

And life in the open/nature isn't that hard!

I presume everyone will do it someday.

What do u think schools here for?
It's here so you can learn on how to live your future and take responsibility's.
Science praticles are the number 1 priority of helping you deduct life in the open. along side RE and Geograpghy..

my brother called me on he phone yesterday, and held the phone to the radio. it was an article about zombies. real zombies. his mom listens to nothing but NPR.
also, scientists have done research and have re-animated the dead. and they have found a virus and a parasite that creates zombies. they also linked the N1H1 (swine flu) virus to the Z-Virus.
You also have to realize that there has been evidence of zombie-ism in history and religion. also realize that almost everything in story books exists or has existed in the past. where else would we have all these stories, but human experience?
I fully believe that tis is the way the human population will be wiped out. my dad and i already have plans on how to barricade and escape from out house, and he has stared a stockpile of food. You have to prepare for it, or you'll become a zombie, too. before its your time, at least.
If you dont believe any of this is true, just do a little research. a google search will suffice. or go through all your history books. theres evidence. lots of evidence. its nothing to be afraid of. you can still sleep at night. theres no zombies outside. yet. but the zombie appocalypse is coming. you have to prepare yourself.

this is bullshit. BBC news, is actually a large news network. do your homework, before you slander. anyone of you can go into any search engine, type in BBC news. after you see the website (first thing that pops on google), you go search african sleeping sickness. they have pages of news articles about this parasite. want to make it simple. type in "african sleeping sickness zombie" and the same news article pops up. Still not convinced. look up medical refrences on african sleeping sickness. Every symtom classifies urban belief of the zombie virus, including: fevers, irritability, malaise, aching muscles, joint problems, skin eruptions, progressive confussion, extreme personality changes (patients may act violent), slurred speech, siezures, difficulty with walking and moving.

there you go. seriously, you need to learn to research your bullshit, if youre going to opperate a website.

I have always played around with the idea of a zombie outbreak and have used it in many of my short stories, but i doubt there will ever be a 'natural' occurence for a zombie virus. The virus would have to be manufactured useing nano-technology or something thereof. However, an existig virus such as Ebola or Rabies could mutate, but very unlikely to such an extent that it would drive the subject to feed ravenously on the flesh of humans.

Nevertheless, it is a very good medium for many horror films and stories.
On an end note, The Zombie Survival Guide, for all of you true belivers, is in fact a magnificently constructed work of fiction.
The recorded attacks are all fictional and are quite interesting to read.

In all fairness, despite whether "zombies" are real or myth, some say yes, some say no. The ones that say yes they are real are laughed at and called nuts, the ones that say no want proof. If you dig deep and hard enough on the internet, you will find declassified military documents (with a lot censored out of them), about experiments conducted over a period of 30 years to reanimate dead soldiers to place them back in the field to keep numbers up on the battlefield. While experimenting, an untested compound was dropped in the cooler where five cadavers were being stored. Shortly thereafter, all five corpses began to exhibit basic and almost spasm-like motor skills. The incident lasted for only 86 seconds. Shortly therafter, the government shut doown the research program claiming that it was unethical. Is it possible some jerk in a lab is messing with this stuff? Of course. Is it possible that an actual zombie outbreak could occur? Of course, but highly improbable.

ok first of all you guys in normal conditions a zombies life span is about five years give or take not eleven years not 2 hours but this also depends on climate because a solanumus brain doesn't need oxygen it can survive being frozen and such basically the warmer and wetter it is the less his life span will be whereas the colder and drier it is the longer. mosquitos and other parisitic insects will ignore solanum infected beings 100% of the time and no matter what the virus is 100% fatal among all species the only ones that can be reanimated are human also they are real and so is the possibility of an outbreak in YOUR area someday so i recommend all yous guys be prepared cause if you're not you're food

You can't say the life span is 11 years, that's information that we made up for movies and games. Kinda retarded when you act completely sure...

Night of The Living Dead should be a dead give away. No pun intended, it's the only film I've noticed to say it's based on true events then at the end claim that its all false and created just for the movie excitement.And the film makers did get threatened to have a law suit filed against them if you take notice they do bring that up in the movie when in one of the scenes they are sitting at a table explaining facts to the young teenagers and even menchon the law suit and how they had to cover up the truthto avoid it. But as for a zombie outbreak, yes very possible but the only way to get rid of them is by severing the brain, strong pulse of EMP, or burning the corpses. Just hope it dosn't rain if you decide to burn them because that will cause a major problem with outbreak. Pay attention to odd news such as outbreaks of things and keep track of odd happenings that don't happen every day. Also the Zombie Survival Guide should help you. Zombie virus is not airborne only transmittable through getting bitten by an infected, and yes it is a very real unexplainable possiblility. Some things in life are just meant to have no explmation as to why or how it happens. Stock up on supplise such as food, water, clothing, weapons, and seek a safe shelter. Just look around you and take note on details of things and link them together because its up to you to figure things out because the government isnt going to want an all out panic from people. That would only cause more koas. And some things are just not going to be able to be solved logically. Up to you people to believe whatever you choose to believe. But all I have to say is there are some things that just arent meant to be explained. And some things that should be questioned and thought upon. What person can ever say they never questioned something in life they have seen, heard, or experienced? We can only wait and find out to see if things are true for ourselves. Like I say live every day like it's your last because you never know when that day might be. Whether zombies be real or fake just think for yourself on what to believe and do what you gotta do. Thats what I have to say on this. What I posted here is what I would do in the event a zombie outbreak actually did occur. For now it's just stories being told but you never know what might happen in the future. Just ask yourself this how many of us can actually say everything we have experienced or come accross in our lives make complete logical sense 100% and not even come accross one single illogical answer they might've thought upon and shake it off as it's only a story? How many of us can say we never questioned logic on things we have learned as human beings? Maybe there are some actual illogical unxplainable things out there that are meant to be left unanswered by man kind. Who knows....
