YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE...MAYBE TWICE!
Wow, I haven’t posted anything in a really long time. College takes up 99, if not 100% of my time, frankly. But today I couldn’t help but make a comment on something. See, today in histology class, we were discussing the gastrointestinal tract, focusing on the stomach at the point in time when I gained this piece of information (surprised I gained anything from that class). we pointed out that within the layers of the stomach wall, there are two nerve plexuses:…Continue
I haven’t posted anything in a while, because exams have been taking up most of my time. So anyway, I was walking to school one morning, and these Jehovah Witnesses stopped me and handed me this little booklet and suggested I read it. Of course, the title of it captivated me- Doomsday: Fact, Fiction and Fantasy- so I decided to read a bit. It was the Awake! September 2012 edition, and as I read I came across a line that said: “There seems to be no end to…Continue
Wow, haven't been here in a while :P Ok, so I've been thinking right, and being a medical student and all, I think I have a pretty good idea of how the human body (in terms of physiology in relation to gross anatomy) should work under ideal circumstances. Any changes to the regular morphology or function of even the tiniest part of the body (DNA sequence) would alter the way the body works, and since the body won't be at "optimum", it wouldn't have the capacity to function for a very long…Continue
Ok, so today I was at school, in biochem, and I had an asthma attack. I had the flu for a few days now, so I guess that triggered it. But after walking across from med school to the ER, I had to sit for a while, so I had time to think. About where a zombification outbreak may initiate. Swear, I was TOTALLY aware of the other sick people sitting around me (I'm a bit of a hypochondriac) and eventually, after feeling as though I had caught TB or H1N1 or something, I couldn't help but thinking:…Continue
Ok well i wont be here too often, since i'm waiting for my netbook to be returned so that i can continue blogging in peace (curse this piece of junk that i currently use). anyways, i'll try to come online and continue our very educational (and scary, slight) discussions, since i love this site and you guys so much :3 lolz. if the Apocalypse happens and i'm not online, fb me. Komrad Vanessa (i believe) has me as a friend, so find me! haha ok im out niqqas.
This thought came to me while I was cleaning my closet. Now the obvious thing is that the entire body is controlled by action of the brain/central nervous system. What people may think is that zombies are brain-dead, as in, their brain is no longer functional, so they are practically walking dead people. That may not be the case, because the only way the body can even work is by command of the brain. This means that the brain of a zombie isn’t dead, it is simply…Continue
Today in class, we were studying embryology, and at one point the lecturer mentioned that when a woman has a child after the age of 40, it's very likely that the child would be born with Down syndrome. Now this is a genetic disorder, caused by changes in number of chromosomes. Basically, it's a mutation, and it causes physical abnormalities. My hypothesis for today is that zombification can be caused by genetic mutation, much like Down syndrome or sickle cell anaemia. What if there is a…Continue
Um, check this link first please. It's my blog post previous to this, and it's very relevant to this:…Continue
I have a hypothesis zombification could be as a result of a highly infectious virus. This does make a lot of sense, from a biologist’s point of view. Let’s call the virus ZAIDS. With this hypothesis, the virus works just like the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), where it enters the bloodstream, attaches itself to the white blood cells and releases its genetic material into the cell. Basically, the white blood cell would now begin to produce the DNA of HIV, and so more members of the virus…Continue
Ok, yes I said “fun”, but they’re not really that fun, more like freaky.
I’ve been looking through a couple stories that people have brought up about certain persons displaying zombie-like behaviours in the past couple years. I’d heard the stories before, but being the person I am, I overlooked them. But…Continue
This is my first post, and usually a person would formally introduce him/herself to the readers. I, for one, won’t do that. All I’m going to say is that I am a believer. In zombies, that is. Not many people (at least from what I know) could say that, but I can’t say I’m a part of the masses. Now, I’m not here for popularity, and I know there are chances of my blog not even being read by anyone, really, but…Continue
