Is The Zombie Apocalyse Here?
Zombies and the Zombie Apocalypse are in the news because Miami Zombie Rudy Eugene ate over 80 percent of a homeless mans face on the side of a Miami freeway and he even continued to eat after he was shot by police. It is believed that Eugene may have been high on bath salts which are said to give you a high similar to cocaine. It will be several weeks before toxicology reports are in however.
Adding fuel to the fire is another incident in the last week in New Jersey where a man Wayne Carter had boarded himself up in his home and when police came after they were called by a concerned neighbor Carter begin to stab himself in his own stomach and cut pieces of his intestines off and threw them at the police. He was finally subdued by members of the local Swat team who downed him with bean bags that were shot from shot guns. Could it be that the Zombie Apocalypse is upon us.
I for one don't want zombies crawling through my bedroom window so lets explore further and see what the possibilities are that zombies could soon be running down a street near you screaming for brains.
The Zombie Institute for Theoretical Studies
Believe it or not but it's a real institute run out of the University Of Glasgow in Scotland. So it seems that at least part of the scientific community believes that a Zombie Apocalypse is possible. There is actually a Z.I.T.S. team that researches what would happen in the event of a Zombie Apocalypse happening here on earth.
The CDC Published A Paper On What To Do If A Zombie Apocalypse Happens
Yes you read that right. On October 11th 2010 the Center For Disease Control released a report on what people should do in the event of a Zombie Apocalypse. While the report does not say that a Zombie Apocalypse is likely to happen in the near future it does furnish information on what you should do if it does happen.The report from the CDC warns that in the event of a zombie attack that you should have your escape route well planned and thought out because hungry zombies are only after one thing and that is your brain. Yes your brain. Zombies eat brains. Do you have any ideal as to what you should do if zombies started appearing outside your door.
1939, Zombies Found In Miami Florida
In 1939 a 14 year old girl was found wandering the streets of Miami Florida. It appears that she was in a trance like condition and could not speak. A few days later a woman came forward who said the girl was fourteen years old and that she had died four years earlier and been buried in a near by cemetery. Police investigated and discovered a sunken in empty grave where the girl was said to have been buried. The young girl later recovered to the point where she could walk and talk normally. She later married and had children.
Man Was Buried Twice In Same Grave Years Apart
Nine days after the girl was found wandering the streets a man was discovered as he repeatedly tried to walk through the wall of a building. His clothes were hanging off of him and it was clear after looking at his nails that the man had been digging in dirt. His nails were torn and some were missing. He was sent to a local mental health home and later it was discovered that he had been buried about five miles from where he was found almost six years before. At the time of his death he was 39. He lived in the mental health home for a couple of years and was then sent back home to his family. A few days later he walked out in front of a train and he was reburied in the same grave where he had been buried years earlier. Hopefully he really was dead this time.
And down through out history there have been many other stories of zombies wondering around long after they were buried.
The Zombie Of St Augustine Florida
In the early morning hours of the 12th of December 1963 a man and his wife were awakened to screams from their nineteen year old daughters room down the hall from their room. The daughter had been laying on her bed when she saw something at her open window. When the teenager approached the window she saw a man whose eyes were sunk in and his gums were pulled back from his teeth.
He was attempting to crawl through her window. She later said that he stank so bad that she could hardly keep from throwing up. The girl slammed the window on one of his arms and it came off at the elbow falling into the room with her. Her father got into the room and to the window in time to see the man stagger off down the street towards some woods. A neighbor man across the street ran into the street after hearing the girls screams and he saw the man to as he staggered off down the street and into the woods. The police were called and they searched the rest of the night for the man. Just at daylight the next morning the man now dead and minus his arm was now laying in some woods about a half mile from where he had attempted to enter the girls room.
The police investigated the incident and immediately thought some one had dug the man up from a local cemetery where he had been buried five years before. You see he was 61 years old when he had died and he had died in the house where the man and woman now lived with their daughter. When the police went to the grave yard it looked like someone had dug their way up and out of the grave.
When the local medical examiner looked at the dead mans nails the mans nails were dirty like he had been digging and he was also missing a finger. The missing finger was later recovered from the cheap cardboard coffin the man had been buried in. Officially the local police said someone or possibly several people had dug the man up and put him where he was found. They would never admit that the man had walked back to his old house on his own. Police said it was a prank but the people there that night said that not only had the man been up and walking but that he was also growling. How this could have been possible no one can say. This story is told by the ghost tour operators on ghost tours in St Augustine Florida to this day. They say it's a true story that really happened. If so it's a spooky story indeed.
Bizarre Screaming Man Kept Screaming, I'm A Zombie I Need Brains
Man arrested after rampage and attack in St. Augustine. He kept saying he was a zombie and that he had to have brains. Police said they had no ideal why the man from a town thirty miles away showed up and attacked the house, lawn furniture, a truck, and the two men who lived in the house. At one point witnesses at the scene said he had no clothes on and he was on the roof of the house trying to stomp his way through the roof. He broke all the glass out of a second story window cutting his own leg badly before he leaped on the top of a truck and then onto the ground.
A bizarre screaming man went on a rampage Saturday, biting a large chunk out of a man’s stomach after leaping from a roof onto a truck on Palmetto Avenue, according to the St. Augustine Police Department Spokesman. A unnamed police officer said it was the strangest thing he had ever seen in his life. He said the young man kept insisting he was a zombie and he had to have brains.
After it took several officers and paramedics to subdue him, 22-year-old Jeremiah Aaron Haughee of North Central Avenue in Flagler Beach was booked into the St. Johns County jail on nine counts of battery, according to the arrest report. Six of the batteries were against police officer's , while Haughee was also charged with burglary and criminal mischief before he was released later Saturday into the custody of a Duval County Mental Health Facility.
Police were called to the scene about 4:30 a.m. to find a naked man being restrained by two men outside their home on Palmetto Avenue, the arrest report said. The men said they were asleep when they heard someone destroying their lawn furniture, then climbing on their roof before leaping onto a truck and denting its hood. The men said he kept screaming and growling and insisted he was a zombie. He told them he had to have their brains. They did not know the man and stated they had never seen him.
When the men came out of their house to see what was happening, Haughee ran in and tackled them. He urinated on the floor before biting one of them in the stomach as they held him for police, according to the police report.
It took nine officers and four paramedics with two sets of handcuffs, leg shackles, a spit-prevention hood and Taser strikes to control the out of control man, a police spokesman said. Five officers were kicked, hit or bitten during the arrest. Haughee was taken to Flagler Hospital and anesthetized to calm him down, then jailed.
There is no initial indication if he was on any substance during his rampage, police said. However he did keep screaming at the hospital staff that he had to have brains. He wanted to know if they had any brains he could have.
If you try to leave a little kid in a graveyard at night he or she will flat freak out on you even if you leave a gun with them. They know that if a zombie attack happens that the gun is not going to be any good. Guns won't stop zombies.
Do you know that living with us right here on earth are brain parasites that could cause zombies. Yes you read that right. Unfortunately in nature parasites that can cause zombies are fairly common. Much more common than you would like to think.
There is a parasite that infects the brains of rats that is called toxoplasmosa gondii and guess the only place this particular parasite will grow. If you guessed the intestines of a cat you guessed it. And about half the people on earth are infected with toxoplasmosa. Yes about half. So you may be closer to being a zombie than you know.
Watch Out For The Zombies At Your Bedroom Window
Humans and rats really aren't that different. That's why they use rats to test medicines on before they give it to humans. All it would take to turn about half the people on earth into zombies is for the parasite to evolve just a little bit and then your neighbors would all be screaming brains and trying to crawl through your bedroom window.
Have You Ever Heard Of A Man Named Clairvius Narcisse?
He was a Haitian man declared dead by two doctors and buried in a local cemetery. Now while that isn't amazing it is amazing that 18 years later he was found wondering around the local area. Can you say Zombie. Research said that Voodoo priests in the area had been using locally available chemicals to turn people into zombies and they had been putting these people to work on local sugar plantations. And as strange as it may sound to you this was supposedly true. How many people did they turn into Zombies that never did wake up.
Zombies are a part of the Voodoo culture and it seems that some people really were turned into Zombies by Voodoo Practitioners. There really does seem to be something to the zombie legend. You see poison extracted from a puffer fish actually can cause paralysis or death in humans. The Voodoo practitioner knew something to mix with the puffer fish poison to turn the person into a zombie.
How About A Super Mad Cow Disease
What if mad cow disease which is a disease rarely found in cows were to evolve into a disease that spread more rapidly and it got into the United States beef supply and before it could be stopped it turned all the beef eating people in the United States into zombies. It may never happen but it could. It's a scientific fact that parasites and micro-orgasms are constantly evolving. So it's not as far fetched as you might think for a parasite to evolve.
Watch Out For Zombies
You want to be sure that your prepared in the event of a Zombie Apocalypse. What would you do if you looked at your window one day and all at once you saw hundreds of the undead walking across the field coming towards your house. I believe I would have an escape route planned out so you can escape the zombies out looking for brains.
Down throughout history zombies have been reported. I can't tell you that they exist while at the same time I can't tell you that they don't exist. Somehow some people have at times been turned into zombie like creatures. It appears almost certainly that some people back in the days before embalming were buried and dug their way out of graves. There are many documented cases of this happening.
It has also been reported around the world that voodoo practitioners are some way able to turn people into living breathing zombies by using blow fish poison and other secret ingredients. No one really knows how this could be possible but it appears that it really does happen. How often it happens no one seems to know.
In the mean time I'll hope the Zombie Apocalypse isn't happening and I'll hope that dead people will stay in their graves and not dig out and become zombies. All I can tell you is that if you do see zombies coming run. Have your escape route planned out so they don't eat your brains.
