some might say an infection could cause it but how could it move or even walk long after death even if it dose have this infection?

some might even go as far as a bug that could control the mind but how could it its imposibl for and bug to get through the skull and even if its been on the grave long enofe for their to be a hole to the brain the bran might be long gone by then

so how would some one become a zombie???

Are you serious or just trolling?

There is no such thing as a zombie. (other than members of the 60's band, that is)

i know dude...not yet it could happen

you need to keep a opened mind on things

They could tell the doctor they're depressed and get a few bottles of brain-killing medication on prescription..

I believe he is speaking hypothetically, after all he did place it in the correct forum (SkunkWorks)

I believe the leading contributer (according to most movies) to a person being turned into a zombie is some kind of virus causing a plague.
Also I think at least once the cause was a radiation tainted rain falling on a nearby city.

First, make them "dead", then make them "mad" so that their minds are malleable. Often, a local "witch doctor" secretly gives them the drugs.

He made the victim "dead" with a mixture of toad skin and puffer fish. You can put it in their food, or rub it on their skin, especially the soft, undamaged skin on the inside of the arm near the elbow. The victims soon appear dead, with an incredibly slow breath, and an incredibly slow and faint heartbeat. In Haiti, people are buried very soon after death, because the heat and the lack of refrigeration makes the bodies decay very rapidly. This suits the zombie-making process. You have to dig them up within eight hours of the burial, or else they'll die of asphyxiation.

So thats how they get all those republican votes !!!

All it is is legends from Haiti.

There are no zombies- not real ones anyway.

They claim they can raise the dead and make them walk again but they do not have a soul.

I suppose this could apply to nut cases walking the streets in Haiti.

"Look, there's a Zombie"!!!!!

It's the time of the season, baby!

It's easier to use borrachero than to go the puffer-fish route. Borrachero has the unfortunate dosing issue, though. A bit too much and you get the dead part without the zombie part.

BORRACHOS are everywhere and they aint a figment of our imagination either.

I guess they qualify as zombies.

Only if they've had enough tequila!

Seriously, there's a tree called "the borrachero" from which you can extract a really active scopolamine derivative. It's a Central American date rape drug - just dry and powder the inner bark, blow it in someone's face, and instant zombie. Or a corpse, sort of depending.

edit - or you can put some extract in someone's food, or just sleep under the borrachero for a fun night of "visions".

You said somthin about, how would a bug get in your brain... you have ears and eyes and a nose.

I see zombies all the time but, their just trippin'

Making a zombie is quite easy actually.

1/2 oz Bacardi® 151 rum
1 oz pineapple juice
1 oz orange juice
1/2 oz apricot brandy
1 tsp sugar
2 oz light rum
1 oz dark rum
1 oz lime juice

Blend all ingredients with ice except Bacardi 151 proof rum. Pour into a collins glass. Float Bacardi 151 proof rum on top. Garnish with a fruit slice, sprig of mint and a cherry.

The result is yummy goodness :-)

A few years back i heard of a case where a witch doctor somewhere was put on trial for giving someone in his family ground up puffer fish in there food and the person then was thought to have died. Then after he was buried the witch doctor dug him up and the man then was seen roaming through town like a zombie. What the puffer fish does is slow down the persons vitals to where they where not detected. Then from being deprived of oxygen , they developed brain damage in the coffin. here are a few links regarding puffer fish.

So there are some examples of how a zombie could exist. This is not just science fiction.

These are not, nor ever could be, examples of zombies.

They do not hunger for the flesh of the living.

They cannot turn others into zombies.

They are still living, breathing organisms.

Sorry friend, this is science fiction.

A zombie is not a flesh eating *muuuuuuuuuhhhh* moaning person byt the ''only'' definition.

It is ONE of the definitions of a zombie

1. (in voodoo)
a. the body of a dead person given the semblance of life, but mute and will-less, by a supernatural force, usually for some evil purpose.
b. the supernatural force itself.
2. Informal.
a. a person whose behavior or responses are wooden, listless, or seemingly rote; automaton.
b. an eccentric or peculiar person.
3. a snake god worshiped in West Indian and Brazilian religious practices of African origin.
4. a tall drink made typically with several kinds of rum, citrus juice, and often apricot liqueur.
5. Canadian Slang. an army conscript assigned to home defense during World War II.

Of course it's impossible for these people to be a zombie, it's a computer!.

Zombie Computer (often abbreviated zombie) is a computer attached to the Internet that has been compromised by a security cracker, a computer virus, or a trojan horse.

The thing about puffer fish is not a legend. Sushi chefs in Japan have to train for years and years before they are allowed to prepare the fish for the public. Needless to say it is considered a delicacy. Anything potentially lethal or impossibly hard to find usually is.

I read a newspaper story years ago where a diner was being prepared for burial when he began to revive. I think.

one would be a zombie to not have a proper thought process, just the basic eat thought, there would be no right or wrong, your brain could remember how to move but not think about what to or not to do, just eat..... brains would be the ideal choice, human brains, but you'd settle for whatever you could sink your Chompers into. dgtempe was right it all originated in Haiti but if you read about black magic it is a form of necromancy, reanimating a corpse to do your bidding!

Not to be Mr Wet Blanket here, but about the only things you can charm a corpse into doing are pretty simple: the Inflating Like a Balloon trick, the Leaking Noxious Fluids trick, and the Smelling Like Rotten Meat trick. Well, there's a decorative Turning Nasty Colors one I guess.

These are easy to do. In fact, it pretty much happens whether you use necromancy or no.

Since no one posted this answer yet, I guess it's up to me:

By working in corporate America in a windowless cubicle environment.

Thank you, you've been a great audience. I'll be here all week. By kind to your servers. Drive home safe...

Just out of curiosity why do zombies eat only brains? I never looked into it but it just stumps me.
