Discovery Channel prepares you for the zombie apocalypse

"It's scientifically plausible for humans to contract a virus that changes them into a Zombie."

"Prepare yourself with 'Zombie Apocalypse Tuesday' on Discovery."

Are you ready for doomsday? Or a zombie apocalypse? Discovery Channel introduces a group of ordinary people prepping for a zombie takeover and examines the science behind this end-of-the-world scenario in the new one-hour special documentary Zombie Apocalypse, premiering Tuesday, December 18th at 10PM ET/PT as part of Discovery Channel’s “Apocalypse Tuesday”.

Ivy League professors and scientists speak out in this special to give evidence for this scenario.

Diseases can move very quickly thanks to our global infrastructure – cars, trains, subways and if such a virus were to become a pandemic, the results would be immediate and devastating.

This event isn’t all imagination. Dr. Steven Scholzman of Harvard Medical School explains that it is indeed plausible for humans to contract a virus that changes them into something resembling a Zombie.

zombie things like this dont scare cause i know it cant happen. i mean there could be some virus that could make you go crazy and be like "BRAAAAAIIIIINS" but rising from the dead? idts

and the dec 21 thing is so so so bogus, like seriously now, the Mayans didnt even account for leap years

It's going to be annoying as fuck seeing people on here and on fb freak out over this.
cloudynitemare 7th-Dec-2012 06:29 am (UTC)
Already sick of it tbh.
chuk_is_dazzled 7th-Dec-2012 06:34 am (UTC)

atrum_silva 7th-Dec-2012 06:29 am (UTC)
If the zombies are coming (assuming I don't turn into one myself), I'm just going to off my pets and myself. I wouldn't last 15 min in a zombie apocalypse.

I was just wondering out loud. I was like if the world ever comes to an end- is this really over for us, every living beings, every known life sources, for the entire planet? is this the epitome of game over? lol pssh le sigh

The earth will still be here, its us humans that will have limited existence.
ohwutevernvm 7th-Dec-2012 06:49 am (UTC)
yes, even if the earth would gradually cease its existence. the universe remains everlastingly bright and sleepless... alas, humans are no more but ashes gone with the wind. pity. It seems so depressing. The end of the world has to go and ruin everything~ lol
nevermademe 7th-Dec-2012 06:34 am (UTC)
wow like all of ontd is going to off itself. so i guess it's just going to be me and a shit ton of nra members left
rocksaltme 7th-Dec-2012 06:39 am (UTC)
haha Yes. It's going to be like all suicides/homicides and there will be all of a dozen people killed by actual zombie attacks. It's like comedy-horror up in here.
one_hoopy_frood 7th-Dec-2012 06:58 am (UTC)
I feel like I wouldn't off myself right away just in case some sort of solution was found. I feel like I'd be the person who would die and then it would be fixed the next day.

I'll still be around, I hope. I'd have to take so much shit from all my conservative friends (if they still exist) over my ~gun control positions
rocksaltme 7th-Dec-2012 06:35 am (UTC)
Some of you people need to have bit more confidence. Ready to off yourself and your family upon the first zombie sighting, what if the zombies are taken care of in like 2 days? lol
myblackass 7th-Dec-2012 06:42 am (UTC)
I'm really hoping the Key & Peele sketch about racist zombies is true.
chvnel 7th-Dec-2012 06:43 am (UTC)
tbh i'm more worried about something like Contagion happening...
chuk_is_dazzled 7th-Dec-2012 06:48 am (UTC)
yeah now that stuff is freaky because its actually plausible
beatlebug_2 7th-Dec-2012 06:44 am (UTC)
Whatever if the world really does end on the 21st I really need to get laid before then.
ohwutevernvm 7th-Dec-2012 06:51 am (UTC)
lol truth

There is going to be a second baby boom come September 2013, mark my words.
