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)

As I said it's give or take. Its your own freewill to believe it or not. The complexity of the human mind can never be totally understood. Even by our own selves, because we are unlocking secrets and abilities we have as beings every day and night we live. Human lifeforms are continually evolving. Therefore we become more complex. The meaning of death varies upon every one. It can mean dying and never returning and that's that, or it can mean dying and returning as another lifeform/humanbeing. Complicated to explain but it's all a part of this world. Live or die I will stand and fight my damnest to survive.
