Scientists Confirm Zombies In Ants, Why Not Humans?
Scientists Confirm Zombies In Ant Colonies In Brazil
Scientists have recently confirmed that there are four types of fungus on the jungle floor in Brazil that can infect the brains of ants and turn the ants into zombies. The fungus takes over the host body of the ant and it kills the ant when it wants to.
Scientists say that the devastation caused by zombie ants can be horrific. The fungus destroys entire ant colonies wiping out the ants and leaving an empty ant colony. When the fungus infects a ants brain it wanders off into the jungle where the fungus eventually takes over its brain and kills it. If another uninfected ant feeds on or bites a dead ant the live ant almost always gets infected with the fungus and the process repeats turning another ant into a zombie ant.
About a week after the ant gets infected it dies and after it dies the fungus grows on the ants head and then it can infect other ants.
It's a scary thought but if a fungus can turn ants into zombies why not humans. What if the same fungus some how got started growing in humans. Would it turn the human into a zombie.
What do you think. A similar fungus is decimating the frog population in some areas.
It is thought by the scientists that originally the fungus is airborne and that it falls down from the air onto the ants and that is how the infection process gets started.
This sounds very much like what happens in the new zombie movie World War Z. What if a fungus like that infecting the ants were to start infecting humans. World War Z could really happen. Now that would be scary.
Zombie Apocalypse: Jerimiah Hartline Claims Undead Chasing Him Caused Big-Rig Crash
Zombie Apocalypse: Jerimiah Hartline Claims Undead Chasing Him Caused Big-Rig Crash
Jerimiah Hartline, 19, is definitely not on our team when the real Zombie Apocalypse comes. He told local police that several very fast moving zombies were chasing after him screaming for his brains and that is what caused him to jack knife and crash the big rig seen in the above wreck.
Jerimiah Hartline is accused of stealing a 18 wheeler truck on Saturday and that he drove down the highway at speeds of over 100 miles per hour before he crashed the truck. Along the way he caused several wrecks and destroyed five vehicles.
His excuse for why he did all this was you guessed it, Zombies. He said he was chased along the highway by several very swift moving zombies and that they were chasing him screaming that they wanted to eat his brains. Maybe a zombie has already sucked this boy's brain out with a straw and that's why he's so stupid.
Seven people were injured seriously in the wreck and no one saw the zombies but Hartline. Though the local police said there was unknown blood and tissue on one of the rear doors of the 18 wheeler truck that Hartline had stolen and later wrecked. Two of the seven people struck in their vehicles by Hartline were injured seriously.
The 18 wheeler truck that Hartline jacked at a weigh station was loaded with strawberries.
After Hartline wrecked the truck he attempted to carjack a van but several people including the van's driver held Hartline until the police arrived.
Zombie Attack In Texas, Two Zombie Attacks In Two Days. What Is Going On?
Two Zombie Attacks in Texas In Two Days, Zombie Plague Spreads.
On Saturday June 22, 2013 a man who's friends said he was high on synthetic pot went wild and crazy. He stripped off his clothes and ran around the house on his all fours like an animal growling and screaming. At one point one of his friends locked the back glass screen door when the man went outside and the man screamed and then leaped through the locked screen door through the glass in the upper part of the door. He cut his chest and legs badly and was bleeding badly. He was scooping up his own blood with his hands and pushing it into his own mouth eating it.
His friends terrier dog came into the kitchen and the screaming man beat the dog down with his fists and then tore it apart and ate it hair and all. Before the police and paramedics arrived on the scene the man had consumed most of the little terrier dog.
The police had to use tazzers on the man to finally bring him under control. They strapped him down to a stretcher and transported him to the mental ward of a local hospital in Houston Texas. They said the man had lost a good deal of blood from his self inflicted injuries and a police spokesman said that no one should smoke synthetic pot because it appears the product is really driving some people over the edge. He identified the man as 33 year old Michael Daniels of Houston Texas.
Second Zombie Attack Sunday June 23 , 2013, Houston Texas
This is real. Yes let me state that for the record. Something serious is going on and it appears it can be traced to the synthetic pot that some people are smoking.
Police were called to a house on the south side of Houston Texas early on Sunday morning and they found a scene right out of a horror movie. The first officiers on the scene said that Otty Sanchez a Mexican Female and a citizen of Mexico was setting on the couch with her throat slashed and bad cuts to her hands and arms. She was screaming and when they finally figured it out she was saying she had killed and eaten part of her 18 month old little boy. A search of the bedroom confirmed this. Police were also able to figure out that the knife wounds on the woman were self inflicted and that some of them were really bad knife wounds.
The womans husband was finally located hiding at a neighbors house. He said his wife and her friends had been smoking synthetic pot and that it always drove her crazy but this time she went totally over the edge.
The woman was transported to the same mental ward at a local hospital where the man from Saturdays Zombie attack had been taken. On Sunday afternoon the Houston Police Chief said that the synthetic pot was driving people crazy and that everyone should avoid it. He said that Otty Sanchez had been placed in a medically induced coma and that she would be in surgery for a number of hours on Sunday afternoon. He was asked if there had been other zombie attacks but he refused to answer this question. He said that there would be an update on Monday or earlier if anything happened to either Sanchez or Daniels. He said both were expected to recover fully from their injuries but refused to comment about what type of criminal charges would be filed against either of them in the future. And we will be sure to come back here and update when there is more to the story released by the Houston Texas Police Department.

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 throughout history there have been many other stories of zombies wondering around long after they were buried.
St Augustine Zombie Attack
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 graveyard 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.
Man Claims To Be A Zombie And Asks For BrainsClick thumbnail to view full-size
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. An 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.
There Are Scientific Reasons A Zombie Apocalypse Could Happen
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.
