Just in time for Halloween: zombies are possible!
In a dry-erase reveal of potentially mammoth proportions, the eggheads over at AsapSCIENCE have determined that the condition of a zombification-type disease is a plausible one. While highly unlikely that the zombies would be the “walking dead, risen up from the grave,” they determined that a neurological parasite could in fact bring about the symptoms atypical of a zombie and that said symptoms could be transmitted through bodily fluids, i.e. saliva, semen or blood. At least, I think that’s what they explained — you see they tend to draw a lot of colorful (and distracting!) pictures while talking.
The guys, who seem “sciencey” enough for me to believe them, have a host of awesome videos breaking down all things biological and chemical. And if that is not enough for you, NMR HAS AN INTERVIEW WITH THEM DROPPING SOON! Is that scientific enough for you, poindexter?
You mull over the awesome potential of that interview; I’m going to be building a motherfucking flamethrower to roast some zombie ass!
