Ok, put away your guns and machetes ... Its officially not a Zombie Apocalypse !



While we're certain the dead are not rising, the past week has seen some of the most disturbing instances of human behavior imaginable.

It's all over facebook as well, probably just a test from the media to see how stupid the public are and how propaganda spreads like a wild fire.

Imo it's just the people using the chaos as an excuse to release all of their bottled up anger.

Well, as the good professor in the linked article also said;


Fact is, horrible crimes happen all the time.

"This is all nothing new," said Scott Talan, professor of public communication at American University, with a long work history in public relations and the media. Bad news attracts attention, he said, and when it happens in bunches, people like to attach a name to it, hence, "zombie apocalypse."

You posted a link to an opinion and didn't even make the effort to form your own. Further, it adds nothing to the growing discussions already ongoing here

These events, while apparently sudden, are simply media hype.

There is no doubt in my mind that there have been even more bizarre events than these happening all around the United States & the world, which have not been reported by the media.

What you are seeing now is the proverbial “band-wagon”. The media companies know they can profit from these crazy acts, and proliferate the stories by reporting on any bizarre events they can stumble across that seem related.

This is a type of fear mongering, which the media is known for.

The face eater had a bad drug, or lost his mind. The same applies for the other people who did the same acts.

It would be prudent for a well-educated person to realize that this is nothing more than hype, than to give into the sheep-news and be lead to believe something extraordinary is going on.

Sorry, I just wanted to share with you guys. I invested some time in a thread this morning after reading about the Canadian seal clubbing thread about hate that was very ill received, just figured you guys wanted the facts. I was cruising CNN reading about various things when I saw this, thought you guys may like it.

Actually, I thought it would add to the current discussions as just despicable human behavior and not an apocalypse, my apologies if I didn't point that out in my first post ...

Well
Judging by the various widespread attacks
and many attacks lately in Florida
And I am currently sitting in Florida...

It makes far more sense for my local news station to teach us how to survive a zombie attack than a terrorist attack.

Just sayin...

Yes, and that is why I posted the article, I tend to agree. All these people were cannibals not zombies anyways ...

Actually, I did ... If you had read the thread at all or the article, suppose it is easier to be a critic tho ...

I was not trying to be rude in my post, although I do feel as if you was trying to be but that's ok. If you had read the thread you would know that people have already got on me about that and I guess you thought it wasn't sinking in enough and had to tell me too, uhm ... Thanks.

Fact is I didn't want to "spoil" the read to much, as for the T/C I snipped a portion of the article, linked to it and named the thread the same as the article ... Like you said I am a "newcomer" and obviously forgot something so now you cannot contribute to the thread, other than of course straightening me out, thanks again ...

I suspect you have an issue with the actual topic and that's fine. It's basically an article about zombies being a hot topic, the dead are not rising its just crazy people, some doctors are quoted, links to various stories, something about the cdc, blah blah blah

I'm waiting for the ET/UFO hype. This zombie thing....is a set up for the big show. I bet things start getting even crazier, the closer we get to December. I wonder what's going to happen next week, when Venus passes in front of the sun? Surely, there will be some kind of ritual.

Crazy stuff like these stories have been going on for a long time, my question is this; why are the news picking it up and running with it and everyone else? Perhaps an agenda for distraction or better yet, psychological conditioning for the implosion of the economy this fall/winter.

Ever seen the movie "The Road"? Yeah, it's about to get scary.
