ZOMBIES.

Cambodian Troops Quarantine Quan'sul


There has been a small outbreak of “zombism” in a small town near the border of Laos in North-Eastern Cambodia.

The culprit was discovered to be mosquitoes native to that region carrying a new strain of Malaria which thus far has a 100 percent mortality rate and kills victims in fewer than 2 days.

After death, this parasite is able to restart the heart of its victim for up to two hours after the initial demise of the person where the individual behaves in extremely violent ways from what is believed to be a combination of brain damage and a chemical released into blood during “resurrection.”

Cambodian officials say that the outbreak has been contained and the public has no need to worry.

General Ary Serey had this to say, "We have obtained samples of this new parasite and plan to learn how it starts the heart and other major organs of the deceased. We intend to use this to increase the quality of life for all."

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.

A United Nations team will be dispatched to Cambodia to confirm the safety of biological research in Cambodia.

I agree. Luckily I found out it was a hoax, after I had posted it. I decided not to take it down since so many people had all ready looked at it.

So exactly what I was thinking. If they don't think so, they should watch 28 days later.

Yeah, I read about this on snopes the other day.

p.s.

28 days later is just like any other zombie movie, good for amusement, but nothing special.

it would be kind of cool if it was true, though
don't you think?

i mean, then maybe we'd know how those folk tales started
because there's normally some sort of basis in fact, although a very distant one

yay for cultural anthropology!! hehe

It would be interesting from a sociology and anthropology angle... but scary as hell from a human angle.

I was thinking of resident evil while reading it..especially when it got to the government wanting to use it to improve the quality of life!
lol my eyes were wide open the whole time I read it. I use to be scared to death of zombie movies as a kid. Still don't go out of my way to watch them now. Opposite of you random..ghosts hold no fear for me, but zombies...ugh.
28 days later was a good movie. Of course, I'm scared of zombies so it worked for me. I want to see shawn of the dead :D I need a good joke zombie movie. On 28 days..I of course got sick of stupid people..but what scarey movie isn't filled with idiots.
