Zombie Apocalypse is Nigh? Blog Post Lays Out the Evidence

zombie apocalypse

A zombie apocalypse is almost permanently on the lips and keyboards of web users worldwide, and for some reason the trope of impending armageddon is one that remains firmly entrenched in our collective psyche.

Zombie apocalypse is just one doomsday scenario of many that we consider (nuclear accident, plague and pestilence, or the election of Donald Trump to public office are other potential world-ending precipitates), and despite its relative implausibility, it’s one to which we return to plan our arsenal, bug out bag, escape route, and potential and sex-guaranteeing rescue of an object of our affection. (See Shaun of the Dead.)

So it was with no small measure of nervous giggling a series of zombie apocalypse-esque stories have been trending on social media in recent weeks, and despite the gruesome nature of many, Facebook and Twitter users can’t help but make references to the seemingly imminent arrival of Z-Day.

The most zombieriffic story to trend this week of course was that of the face-eater in Miami who continued eating a man’s face even after he was shot once by police, police who presumably have watched Zombieland and know to double-tap.

Then there was the man in New Jersey who began throwing bits of his own entrails at police officers, and was not subdued by pepper spray.

Pepper Spray Police Placed On Leave

Two stories that really do sound like the start of Jersey Shore of the Dead to be sure, but wait, there’s more. Also in Florida, a doctor was arrested and began spitting blood at the officers taking him into custody, also impervious to standard methods of restraint.

Also, there is the radioactive sushi. I don’t know about you guys, but if a police chief that looks like George Romero gets on the news and tells me that reports that the dead have begun walking are internet rumors, I’m stocking up on baseball bats and scythes and heading up to Woodstock, who’s with me?

You can read a collection of all this month’s terrifying, zombie apocalypse signaling news over at this guy’s blog, via Gawker.

    Reading these comments leads me to believe that Zombies can talk and type…Let me help out the masses that don't get it. This article is a JOKE!

    7 Scientific Reasons a Zombie Outbreak Would Fail (Quickly).

    #7. They Have Too Many Natural Predators.
    #6. They Can't Take the Heat.
    #5. They Can't Handle the Cold.
    #4. Biting is a Terrible Way to Spread a Disease.
    #3. They Can't Heal from Day to Day Damage.
    #2. The Landscape is Full of Zombie-Proof Barriers.
    #1. Weapons and the People Who Use Them.

  9. Daniel Platts

    You are assuming that the disease would be spread only by biting? What if it were an airborne disease affecting thousands daily. The spread wouldn't be controllable.

    A Zombie apocalypse is more likely executed among "Lipstick anarchists, Anti-War, Occupiers, Union members, Environmentalists, Bonafied Communists and Progressives hell-bent in world homologation, equality and domination" as groups like these have an historically proven way of moving large groups of people in sometimes violent ways. Current examples like riots in Greece, France, Occupy Wall St. are evidence that "Zombies" don't have to eat your flesh but act in a collective manner in which can figuratively "eat the brains of others" and let's say protest violently if "they don't get their way" or loose their "messiah" in the White House. Hence to be prepared for such is not so crazy as people may think as large demonstrations like these can disrupt the distribuition of food and essential supplies that come into cities daily causing further public upheaval. Think Mob Mentality!

  14. Laura Merlyn Klongland

    Hahaha. You know the trade off between zombie popularity and vampire popularity, right? Vamps typically get popular when Democrats are in office: Cruel, beautiful, hedonistic, full of self-importance. Zombies get popular when Republicans get in: "The unwashed masses", so to speak, mindless, tattered, and always starving.

    People live in a fantasy land after watching too many Zombie movies. It would never be like that anyway, because real people are far smarter than the idiotic characters portrayed in the movies. A real life 5 year old could easily evade zombies, but the adults in the movies always seem to be outsmarted by the brainless walking dead.

    zombie APOCALYPSE is no joking matter; especially if it turns out to be something more like 28 days later; or cabin fever. Madness because of food shortages can bring the worst out of westerners; unfortunately; it would only take an Katrina LA riot situation for the worst in humanity to show up. In china they are already forcing abortions in N Korea they are already executing people for cannibalism. That could be everyone; cause everyone will become a zombie to you eventually; if they want what you have and desire to take it without asking.

    zombo apocalypse? AAAAAAAAAH! I think I saw one walking down the street the other day. it's true! I saw it! oh well, my home town here is full of zombos so I'm used to it. and boy do they smell bad.

    wasn't it Criswell who predicted a zombo apocky in Pittsburgh back in the 50's. when we were kids there was a book of Criswell predictions we had and it predicted it would happen in the 70's or 80's. AAAAAAAAAH!

  29. Stephen Mandel Joseph

    I agree with you that the true "zombies" of society don't eat our flesh. They devour us in other ways and methods. But you left out the politicians and rich men during the Bush Administration who devoured the U.S. Treasury and drove the dollar down. Who also deceived people into unnecessary wars against the Middle East, Who use the real WMDs, which are greed, power and control. The Zombies of propaganda and media who strive to manipulate the mindset and functions of human societies. Those, my friend, are the real zombies. And those who are brainwashed by their policies are their meals. Those who steer their nation toward immorality, Welfare, confiscated taxation, the pursuit of materialistic wealth, the abandonment of religion, the destruction of the Middle Class, and that God is dead and men are supreme are the real Zombie state of our society. Movements like OWS and others are only "reactions" to sinister "actions" by evil and selfish men bent on leading our world into its own apocalypse.

    I know that, sweet. I read the article of what happened to that homeless guy in Florida. My comment, if you read it, says that not "everyone" is eating flesh physically, some do it mentally. Not all Zombies are physical flesh eaters. Also, a Zombie can refer to a person who is just as "mentally" dead as they are physically dead.

    Can't take the heat or cold? You seriously don't understand zombies do you? They take shots to any part of the body (except the head) and still come at you. I think they'd be able to limp through 100 degree weather. Zombies outbreaks usually occur by an airborne virus. So the moment the outbreak happens, humans are out numbered.

    Also, sweets, when I said "no one was getting their faces chewed off" I was responding to Rodney's comment, referring to the fact that the Zombies we see commuting aren't chewing off faces here in NYC, instead, most of the Zombies here are lost souls who are either spiritually or mentally dead. And those are the worse Zombies out there.

    The only logical way a "Zombie" could be produced, is if a recently deceased body was taken over by a parasitic life form. The Life form would devour the entire body, and reproduce an exact copy of it. The more it eats, the more it produces. So the [Prototype] approach is logical in most ways, excluding the Tendrils of fear and the Blades of OMFG.

    You have to understand what a zombie is. It is essentially dead, rotting meat. Take a pound of hamburger and set it outside at 100 degrees and see what happens. It will fester and rot. The point here is that zombies will never happen.

    It's humor, people! Laugh! Have a few giggles over it! I saw a post on Tumblr similar to this talking about the flood of crazy events over the past few days in Florida. Here's the fantastic response one person had: http://birthrightandburden.tumblr.com/post/24023455306/zombie-apocalypse-coming-soon.

    We've seen WAY too many movies. Like the comedian Paul Mooney said: "People believe what they see". "The Exorcist" came out, people were crowding into church. "Jaws" came out, no one went to the beach. And we can NOT forget that lovely little number that debuted in 1968 that started this whole Zombie ball rolling (if you don't know what movie I'm talking about, leave this page right now heathen!). In closing:

    Actually, scientific research on zombies has been extremely difficult because the limited outbreaks generally end with total annihilation of the region, and little post-outbreak study. It's still not completely clear if they are, indeed, just rotting dead meat. To assert that they are rotting meat then make conclusions on that assertion is not scientific.

    This doesn't mean zombie apocalypse, this means that there was some sort of rash in a school. A fucking cannibal in Miami.
    and a doctor forgot to wash his hands after helping a patient, and for not acting human? Well they are obviously sick or maybe they just DGAF.

  79. Kaylin Elizabeth Stephens

    It depends what climate they are in, I would imagine. Somewhere with a moderate climate year-round (neither extreme of cold or heat) would be a excellent place for zombies to multiply exponentially in a short amount of time. Miami's probably out of the question, unless it starts in the winter there, but England has a climate similar to that. Think Shaun of the Dead without the funny parts.

  80. Kaylin Elizabeth Stephens

    And in some countries it is illegal for regular citizens to own guns in most cases, unlike in the US, which would probably be more well-prepared for zombies in this case.
    Also, it depends what kind of zombie as well. You've got several horror movie varieties to choose from. Fast or slow zombie? Supernatural or scientific cause? Do they only attack humans or any living creature?

    If it's a slow-moving, scientifically caused zombie that only attacks humans, then you're probably gonna be ok. Otherwise, I think we're all fucked.

    @Katherine Pitts: A zombie (Haitian Creole: zonbi; North Mbundu: nzumbe) is an animated corpse brought back to life by mystical means, such as witchcraft.[1] The term is often figuratively applied to describe a hypnotized person bereft of consciousness and self-awareness, yet ambulant and able to respond to surrounding stimuli. Since the late 19th century, zombies have acquired notable popularity, especially in North American and European folklore.
    Says nothing about eating people. There is some validity to the fact that Jesus was a zombie. Just sayin…

    Brian Malkiewicz "zombie outbreaks usually occour"? since when has there ever been an outbreak? remember that time when that dog got rabies… then bit that other dog, and the next morning EVERY single dog in the world had rabies? no? well thats because it didnt happen. not saying im not totally gunning for an excuse to use all the guns and ammo ive been prepping for years but i think if it was to happen, it would be more along the lines of 28 days/weeks later. not walking dead….

  127. Jimmy Thomas

    Okay, Zombies may not exist, but what about Crazy, 'cannibals' hyped on on drags and adrenaline? We've already got that happening in my freakin' state! Faces gettin' bitten off… you apparently don't have to be dead to act like a Zombie and eat people…

    Guessing your new to zombie 101 but the virus would eventually keep things moving and flowing in order to prevent further cause off decaying… shoot a zombie in the head and its done for the inhabited body. The virus controls motor functions which invades the brain and nervous system. Extreme cold environments can be a problem because Frostbite or frozen flesh can happen rapidly – within minutes – at any temperature below 0 degrees C (32 degrees F). Extreme heat is not a problem unless sever drying out of the body occurs due to server wounds.

    I guess people talk about Zombie Apocalypse because they want it to happen in a way.If I were to choose how this world should end I would choose zombie invasion scenario.I wouldn't want to be as a zombie but I would want to run from them and destroy them.I would also like to find a group of other normal people, so we could help each other and fight for survival together.Teamwork, adrenaline and adventures is what makes zombie apocalypses so interesting.I recommend you to watch The Walking Dead and you'll know what I'm talking about.Of course I'm being realistic and scientifically speaking it's unlikely to happen but there's no harm in fantasizing about it.

    Hmmmm, if "apocalypse" is defined at the end of life as we know it, and "zombie" means a being who's alive but without a brain… then I think a prolonged period of stagnation for Western Civilization (a redundancy), combined with – as a first – all of the "solutions" being offered being simply the same bad ideas which caused the stagnation to begin with, then I think we actually are in a "zombie apocalypse." Art does imitate life, after all.

    biting is not a terrible way to spread disease(it means psychical contact like zombie blood getting your mouth,wounds) no animal would eat the zombie first BEcuz there is NO NATURAL predator becuz zombie isn't in the ecosystem yet and what ever animal eats it would turn into a zombie and we would have to worry about zombie bears which will not make the outbreak a fail and may i remind its disease so it not be easy to get rid off zombie just by waiting for them to rot and what about the people in those grave they have stuff in their blood stream to keep them from rotting

At least those people died for their ideals whatever I or you agree with them, a loss is those who die in the futility of living following the vane of living for themselves.
