OOOooooooh, scary right?
Google Zombie Apocalypse and you’ll see a dozen different articles pop up from the last week, alerting the public on some very strange, yet violent, things going on around North America. The scary part is the results don’t accompany worldwide results.
On Saturday the media was horrified and riveted by the story of Rudy Euegene in Miami who ate eighty percent of a homeless man’s face. It took four bullets and several police officers to get him to stop.
Then Sunday a Hackensack man, Wayne Carter, was reported to have cut off pieces of his own flesh.
But Carter didn’t stop there. He then stabbed himself and cut out a rope of his intestines to throw at the police. He disemboweled himself and was pepper sprayed by the officers who responded, but still, didn’t
stop. He didn’t even stop after they emptied the second can of spray. No, he stabbed himself over fifty times before SWAT was brought in to subdue the man.
Then Tuesday, reports of a man in California, Jarrod Wyatt, a cage fighter, were reported where he attacked his training partner after he drank some sort of mushroom tea. Wyatt ripped out his partner’s heart, tore off most of his face, and cut off his tongue as he believed him to be “possessed by demons.”
It doesn’t stop there.
Oh, not even close.
That night, a Baltimore man, Alexander Kinyua, admitted to killing his roommate and then eating his heart and brains.
The stories just continue to grow…from a pet murderer in Canada to dismembered body parts being sent by a former porn star.
One can only ask, what in the world is going on?
Rumors are flying about, being fueled by the media and fanatics that a “zombie apocalypse” is here. Well, I don’t know about that and I can only laugh in good fun when hearing that term, but there is nothing funny about how they've gotten to that alleged conclusion. But what I do know is that there are so many questions left without answers.
No links exist between any of these incidents and the only conclusions so far have been speculative suggestions such as drugs, bath salts, and mental illnesses.
So in chatting with the old man tonight, I asked him what he thought. A common shrug, as if he didn’t care one way or the other, had me wondering even more what the world would do should said apocalypse be coming. He motioned towards his side arm and stated he’d stop them from fifty years away. *Cue James Bond music*
In my world, as a writer, I exist in strange worlds, fantasize about zombies, vampires, demons…oh my.
But in the real world, these things haven’t existed, or at least not to my knowledge. *Cue scary music*
