DailyDirt: Zombies!

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

There are plenty of zombie movies where viruses decimate the human population with diseases that turn infected hosts into crazy, blood-thirsty undead bodies. Biotech research reports (and maybe even the CDC!) make some of the premises for these zombie movies sound plausible, but mother nature itself has created a few zombie phenomena as well. Here are just some examples. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Something to remember...

    1. Make sure you know your zombie, is it a fast mover or a slow walker. Either way, don't under estimate it.

    2. Decapitation is the only way to stop it. You MUST separate the head from the body to stop the creature.

    3. Pick your favorite zombie movie for research. I prefer Shaun of the Dead (I REALLY like Lucy Davis) but feel free to go back to the classics.

    4. Pray to your G*d.

    did not need to know this.

    And on these notes, I will now be spending the remainder of my workday shuddering in a corner.

    Fungus-controlled ants are compelled by their mold-masters to die in nice neighborhoods for spores to thrive.

    An early experiment by the MAFIAA which escaped into the wild...
