I just red the headlines to the stories...(not the majority of the content)...and I am really upset by all of this...as I know many, many members of ATS are too.
I can find no humor in any of this at all.
The fact that it is happening a lot lately...makes me wonder...why? Also...lately there is a lot of increased gun violence.
Ah, chillax. It's just an outbreak of cannibalism. #, the economy is bad. People gotta eat
Really...are we safe anymore? Can we really fully trust...our neighbors...spouses...friends...acquaintances?
The 4th line down is yours.....I did not say that....somehow you embedded your reply into my original post.
You said: "Ah, chillax. It's just an outbreak of cannibalism...#, the economy is bad. People gotta eat."
I don't agree with what you said...and please don't misrepresent me again.
My original reply is on page 9...if anyone is interested.

'It is pretty stunning when you just replace the DNA software in a cell and the cell instantly starts reading that new software and starts making a whole new set of proteins, and within a short while all the characteristics of the first species disappear and a new species emerges.
Brushing aside the ethical concerns of his work, Dr Venter wrote in his autobiography that it would allow 'a new creature to enter the world'.

I am not aware of any TSE that causes rage or aggressive behavior.
Kuru, KJD, and other TSE effect mobility, coordination and memory. Could the same thing cause the aggressive behavior in a carrier? Interesting to note though that with a recession people may be getting food from less than reputable sources. If I am not mistaken all of the "zombies" were from lower level income populations. The lack of inspections of meat and butchering environments could lead to a prion disease being spread.
What is unusual is that the strain appears to have mutated so that foxes and skunks are now able to pass the virus on to their kin—not just through biting and scratching but through simple socializing, as humans might spread a flu.
To combat the spread of rabies, researchers are catching skunks and foxes, vaccinating them and then releasing them back into the wild. They also have dropped oral rabies vaccinations from planes hoping skunks and foxes will eat them.
