Is the Zombie Apocalypse Upon Us? (The Internet Thinks So)

In the wake of a series of gory incidents, the Internet has been lighting up with claims that we are in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. Skeptical? Well, let’s take a look at the evidence from the last few weeks.

1) A naked man chewed off the face of a homeless guy in Miami. The attacker growled at police officers and continued eating skin even after being shot. It took four more bullets to kill him. 2) A Japanese artist removed his own genitals and served them at a restaurant to the highest bidder. 3) A Maryland man confessed to killing his housemate, chopping him up, and then eating his heart and part of his brain. 4) A New Jersey man repeatedly stabbed himself and then threw pieces of his skin and intestines at the police.

And that’s not all. Newsweek and The Daily Beast have compiled a “Zombie Instances” Google map, which is keeping track of these incidents and other “signs” of the zombie apocalypse -- such as the recent cases of flesh-eating bacteria.

Though many of the zombie apocalypse claims have been made in jest, the Centers for Disease Control issued a serious response. A spokesman told the Huffington Post, "CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead . . . or one that would present zombie-like symptoms." So, what do you think SodaHeads? Is the zombie apocalypse upon us?

    If zombies were true to life, things would not go over the way they do in the movies, fact.

    I'll grant you zombies down the south might survive, but it's the south, the bible belt, they're already zombies anyway.
    Other than that, science can reason that no, zombies wouldn't survive through the winter.

    hang on i read you reply wrong sorry i though you said if anybody thinks that they could surve the first winter of a zombie apocolypse is nuts

    Think about how much water your body consists of. Realize water freezes at 32degrees Fahrenheit. On the coldest day, a zombies body would completely freeze, what activity was left in the brain would completely shut down. Never mind the fact that while the body was slowly freezing it would cause it to break apart pretty bad

    although thinking aout ti it is living dead so they would not need blood or fluids in their body so they could easily lose it and not freeze
    also because they are dead when the defrost they could start moving again and the parts that come of that are still connected to the brain should start moving again
    it is possible
    but gauranteed

    If the body was rid of fluids then warm weather would be worse for it than cold weather. Either way you lose. Because nature is still destroying the bodies.

    If brain activated is stopped for extended periods of time, living or undead, it's just not going to come back. There's a reason most zombie movies don't depict long since dead bodies just coming back.

    hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm... what if the cause was a parasite that took over the host and caused mutations (changing into a zombie) making them attack the host
  • America... king david 2012/09/12 02:43:23
    AmericanVirus
    That's not technically a zombie.
  • king david America... 2012/09/12 03:15:54
    king david
    if the parasite kill the host in the process and drives them around it is walking dead which is what a zombie is
  • America... king david 2012/09/12 03:55:28
    AmericanVirus
    Even still, the body is not working independently, if it's being controlled by said parasite then it's not a true zombie

    The internet lies all the time, plus I am pretty sure that it's impossible. Although if it was soon to happen I must be truthful, I would be terrified.

    I don't believe that zombies will eat human flesh, but it is possible for the cerebellum can be reviewed. The cerebellum moves your body. So if it comes back, you will move. For whatever reason, Russia is in the process of bringing an athlete back to life...

    Well, many cases of these cases r linked to new (worst) drugs, but I think cannibalism is becoming a real issue

    None of these cases had any indication of an impending zombie apocalypse. Zombie fiction fans want to think so but it's clearly mostly drug related crazies. That being said, i'm going to prepare myself for the crazies and if the time comes i'll prove that a dead body stays dead!!

    If enough people take drugs (there are certain ones out there now) that can make them immortal* (I use that word, lightly, but realistcly*) then the world will assume Zombies are the only answer.

    The world knows fear of the unknown, now it can see the unkown (3 guys 1 hammer, 2 men decapitated, 1 mans head, smashed into two) These are things we are not accustomed to, they frighten us.

    Let them scare the world, go with it. Get on top of this ride and survive.

    A friend of mine describes those who are unprepared as the "walking dead". Which is probably about 95% of the population.

    In terms of economic collapse, societal collapse, things are precarious. Most people have about 3 days worth of food in their houses if that and not an oz of water other than what is in the tap.

    I am not a big prepper, but I do prepare and stock pile stuff it is just common sense..
