Zombie Apocalypse: Face-Eating In China (Pics)

Recommended Posts

While I realize that sometimes news stories can get blown out of proportion once the national media gloms onto them, I?m not sure what to think about this latest one.

The newest ?zombie? story to come out is from China, where a bus driver reportedly stopped his bus in traffic, blocking a woman?s car. He then got off the bus, climbed up on the hood of the woman?s car, and began beating at her windshield. When she got out of the car in a panic, he jumped on her and began chewing her face. Allegedly, several people tried to pull the man off, to no avail?although someone had the presence of mind to snap pictures as it was happening. Thank goodness for bystanders! Police eventually responded and took the man into custody.

The bus driver is said to have only been under the influence of alcohol during the attack (although why he was drunk and driving a bus is a question I hope is answered soon). The woman, who was only identified in the Chinese news story as Du (her surname), survived the attack but will undergo surgery to repair her nose and mouth.

Unless you?ve been living under a rock for the past month, you?ve probably heard about Rudy Eugene, the man who ate 75% of a homeless man?s face in Miami over Memorial Day weekend. A toxicology report was recently made public after Eugene was autopsied, and even though police and the media took the whole ?bath salts? story and ran with it, Eugene was found to have no synthetic drugs in his system at all, only marijuana.

That fact, coupled with this latest story, is enough to make me wonder what we?ll see in the coming days and weeks, and whether we?ll ever know exactly what is causing this attacks.

This probably happens all the time, it's just getting attention because of the florida attack that happened in a public place that lots of people saw. It's amazing that people take zombies seriously after the funny punchlines and jokes.

Michigan State University offered a 2 credit class in conjunction with the US Centers for Disease Control called "Surviving the Coming Zombie Apocalypse ? Catastrophes and Human Behavior."

Zombies are a popular metaphor for apocalypse both in popular culture and mainstream academic pursuits, even being used by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for teaching emergency preparedness. This course uses current research and science on Catastrophes and Human Behavior together with the idea of a Zombie Apocalypse to learn about the nature, scope, and impact of catastrophic events on individuals, families, societies, civilizations, and the Earth itself.

>

The question at the center of this course is, ?How do humans behave in catastrophic times?? Does their behavior change in the midst of trying to survive and the decisions they face? We will examine major catastrophic events from the past, look to potential future events, and consider a concept for increasing our chances of survival.

The course begins and ends with a ?Catastrophic Event Simulation? (a Coronal Mass Ejection Incident has caused a Zombie pandemic). Students are assigned into Survivor Groups located throughout the United States and must face the challenges of living and surviving together during a catastrophic event.

In times of catastrophes some people find their humanity, while others lose theirs. What will you and your group do?

And that's why he went crazy and had a psychotic breakdown.

Correct, it had nothing to do with drugs or bath salts. He only had too much to drink.
