gearing up for the zombies?

so i have been working very diligently lately on my BOB then i see this CDC "fake" warning about zombie and its really creeping me out. I just bought 500 rounds of Winchester ranger for my glock and am getting a couple hundred of something for my 9mm soon. i got 200 feet of para cord and started stocking up on some canned goods.


I maybe over reacting but when i read that it really hit home.

A few friends and i are getting together this week to organize a grouping and escape plan/route incase something happens.

You know zombies aren't real, right?


I'm more concerned with the impending Dragon Wars.

If you seriously believe there will be a zombie apocalypse, you need help.

Really? You must not be watching the news. I can't go a week up here in Minneapolis without hearing a news report about a zombie-related drive-by shooting.

Actually zombies are real. At least the voodoo kind. Ever see the movie "The Serpent and the Rainbow"? About zombies in Haiti? It's based on a non-fiction book. Voodoo witchdoctors secretly poison people with either blowfish toxin or frog venom and it slows the heartbeat and breathing until people think the victim is dead. They bury the person and everything. Afterwards, the voodoo people dig up the victim, who is then half retarded with brain damage from the lack of oxygen. They're turned into slaves. Zombie slaves doing the bidding of evil voodoo witchdoctors. And that's happening as we speak. Craziness.

So do you also believe 911 was a conspiracy, and bin laden is still alive? How about the world's gonna end in a year?

Except that the Haitian zombie thing is real.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wade_Davis

n 1983, Davis first advanced his hypothesis that tetrodotoxin (TTX) poisoning could explain the existence of Haitian zombies.[2] This idea has been controversial and his popular 1985 follow up book (The Serpent and the Rainbow) elaborating upon this claim has been criticized for a number of scientific inaccuracies.[3] One of these is the suggestion that Haitian witchdoctors can keep “zombies” in a state of pharmacologically induced trance for many years.[4] As part of his Haitian investigations, Davis commissioned a grave robbery of a recently buried child.[5][6] (Dead human tissue is supposed to be a part of the “zombie powder” used by witchdoctors to produce zombies.) This has been criticized in the professional literature as a breach of ethics.[7][8]

The strictly scientific criticism of Davis’ zombie project has focused on the claims about the chemical composition of the “zombie powder”. Several samples of the powder were analyzed for TTX levels by experts in 1986. They reported[9] that only “insignificant traces of tetrodotoxin [were found] in the samples of ‘zombie powder’ which were supplied for analysis by Davis” and that “it can be concluded that the widely circulated claim in the lay press to the effect that tetrodotoxin is the causal agent in the initial zombification process is without factual foundation”. Davis’ claims were subsequently defended by other scientists doing further analyses[10] and these findings were criticized in turn for poor methodology and technique by the original skeptics.[11] Aside from the question of whether or not “zombie powder” contains significant amounts of TTX, the underlying concept of “tetrodotoxin zombification” has also been questioned more directly on a physiological basis.[12] TTX, which blocks sodium channels on the neural membrane, produces numbness, slurred speech, and possibly paralysis or even respiratory failure and death in severe cases. As an isolated pharmacological agent, it is not known to produce the trance-like or “mental slave” state typical of zombies in Haitian mythology, or Davis’ descriptions, although one might consider the effects of set and setting in combination with the drug. However, Wade Davis did not suggest that the zombie powder containing tetrodotoxin was used for maintaining "mental slaves" but for producing the initial death and resurrection that convinced the victim and those who knew them that they had become zombies. The effects of Fugu tetrodotoxin poisoning in Japan agree with the reports of zombification. The zombies, such as Clairvius Narcisse, were kept biddable by regular doses of the poisonous zombi cucumber, Datura stramonium which produces amnesia, delirium and suggestibility.[13]

I think Zombies taking over is less of an issue. Being that we're in an economic slump, the bigger concern should be zombie-related welfare fraud.

Haven't you played Nazi zombies? The pistol and knife are only for the first round, 12 ga is where it's at.
