Welcome to Librarium Online!
I found the most interesting report about Cambodia and a very nasty new disease. Or to be true a variation on a very old one.
It seems the dead do rise from the grave. This is actually very disturbing for the people who live there. :cry:
I'm personally not sure what to think of this other than it is nasty but quite interesting for lack of a more sensitive word.
Wow is all i can say that is shocking. Cant people learn something from this to increase lifespan or something similar to that?
Also i need to get this start so a person dies then they are "revived" immediatly or soon afterwards and are fully mobile etc?
It appears after googleing it that the storie is fake. Try it for yourself.
Also 1st real post here WooHoo!!!
That story may be fake, but zombies are real!Originally Posted by SilverMane
I know because they haunt my dreams thanks to all the "documentaries" filmed by directors like George Romero. Maybe you've seen some of his work? Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, and Day of the Dead? I think there were updates of these "documentaries" on the existence of zombies released in theaters over the last few years!
Don't just take my word for it, check them out for yourself at your local video store!
The only good zombie is a dead zombie, that's my motto!!!
Man, they're creepy!
Look when the original article was posted...hmm now what usually happens on that date again??:tongue:
"US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice opposed the plan saying that the Cambodian government holds a great biological weapon and should destroy it immediately. Cambodian officials have yet to comment."
but of course...
Brraaaaaainsssss!!! *bites people*

Yeah, the first article on the so-called â€˜zombiesâ€™ is definitely a spoof â€“ not only is it hosted on a non-official news site, but the alleged behaviour of this â€˜zombie parasiteâ€™ defies all laws of medicine.
First of all, there is no natural infectious disease that has a 100 percent mortality rate â€“ even diseases such as Ebola and HIV do not quite reach the 100 percent mark â€“ and even manufactured biological weapons have difficulties reaching that high due to natural variations in the human genome protecting some individuals from the effects of certain bacterial toxins and viral infections.
Secondly, the article claims that the victims actually die and are then resurrected up to two hours after their hearts stopped beating; this is simply impossible unless the patients have been sustained by a heart-lung machine in the meantime since the human brain is irrevocably damaged after only a short time without oxygen â€“ four minutes are usually enough to cause lethal brain damage, and no one being brain dead are going to rise from the grave.
No, old-fashioned zombies in the form of corpses rising from the grave craving human brains (and why brains? Why not livers? I always wondered) are simply impossible according to modern medicine. More realistic zombies are those seen in such movies as â€™28 Days Laterâ€™ where itâ€™s a disease causing brain damage and aggressive behaviour in still-living humans â€“ rabies virus could potentially do this if it mutated to a strain with much lower incubation time, and itâ€™s also usually transferred by bite which would fit the whole zombie theme.
Also, I just read a great book by Stephen King titled â€˜Cellâ€™ which features modern zombies. Spoiler â€“ highlight to see: In the book terrorists hack the global cell phone network and use it to deliver a subliminal message to everyone using cell phones, rendering them into nothing more than aggressive and destructive monsters that attack everyone around them brutally â€“ any attempt to call for help using a cell phone only results in one more zombie on the loose. In an American metropolis the few people spared this grisly fate due to lack of phones â€“ the elderly, the poor, the lucky whose cat knocked down their phone from the table and they were just on their way to get a new one but didnâ€™t quite reach the store in time â€“ must fight to survive as the majority of humanity devolves into mindless zombies â€¦ and then start evolving once again. Dun dun DUN! Quite a scary book, I loved it.
Of course, funny thing is that while I have hundreds of arguments supporting the fact that old-fashioned zombies are quite impossible, Iâ€™m still scared to death by them. :rolleyes: Iâ€™ve even got the handbook â€˜Zombie Survival Guideâ€™ and a BB shotgun, just in case, and my boyfriend and I have spent many evenings planning what to do in case of a major zombie outbreak â€“ we figure that between a doctor and a soldier weâ€™ve got the necessary knowledge and skills to make it out alive â€¦ not that weâ€™d ever need to, of course. :shifty:

Being British, I believe we would survive an attack of 'real' zombies. For those who don't believe me, see the film "Shaun of the Dead" for details on how. Armed with the bare minimum of weapons, (12" Vinyl Records), we British will survive.....
In short God save the ....... BRAINS!!!!!

Yes it appears to be fake. My brother told me it was. I wasn't sure it was real in the first place but it's still fun. Apparently they do have zombies in Haiti. In truth what they are is people who have been poisoned and are suffering from brain damage.
