Zombies are all the rage, and they have been for a few years now. The inevitable zombie apocalypse has inspired more products and designs than we can count, but none of us actually think a zombie apocalypse is possible, right? Scientists have come out many times and said that it would be impossible for our bodies to walk around after we’re dead moaning and craving fresh flesh and brains. I mean, sure, after we’re dead a body part might spasm for a moment or something, but that is light years away from how we would imagine ourselves zombified.
I recently read an interesting article here on Primer Magazine called 5 Reasons The Zombie Apocalypse Will Never Come To Pass. It was insightful and somewhat convincing, but at the same time, I’ll admit that television shows like The Walking Dead almost make it seem so realistic that you might start to wonder. So, maybe a zombie apocalypse is possible after all. This new video by AsapScience has been creating quite a stir over the past few days. It gives a brief explanation for how zombies could actually exist and be scientifically accurate, sort of.
The thing is, zombies in the sense of dead people coming back to life are not possible. However, very alive people who exhibit a zombie-like state is possible. It would have to be caused by a very specific virus, and that virus would have to enter through our noses since our noses lead to the part of the brain which would have to be affected in order for us to transform into super hungry brain dead beings who don’t recognize friends or family. Before I explain it all wrong, just watch this video. It will blow your mind, and then you might think a zombie apocalypse is possible after all. If aliens wanted to wreak havoc on our planet and change life as we know it, they could put this virus into the air for us all to sniff up. I know, it’s a long shot, but you never know…
