People are fascinated with the possibility of a zombie apocalypse occurring at any time. Friends and loved ones who turn against you, an enemy that refuses to stop, and they all want your flesh. A world in which the dead do not remain dead. However, we are told that zombies are fictional creations, and have little or no scientific basis. But this does not prevent several government organizations from revealing themselves to be preparing for a zombie apocalypse over the years. For example, the website of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides information on zombie preparedness.
The posts on their page include links to a zombie preparation blog and strategies to prepare against the undead. In addition, it provides a brief history of zombies with a list of items for an emergency kit. But the CDC is not the only organization that prepares for the zombie apocalypse. In 2011 (coincidentally, the same year the CDC began its zombie preparation campaign), the US Department of Defense launched a strategy to combat a zombie apocalypse: CONPLAN 8888-11. The plan consisted of combat strategies for what could be the last battle against humanity. Be that as it may, it seems that the zombie apocalypse is more real than we think. Or at least that is what many Internet users believe after seeing how a piece of raw meat moving by itself on a table.
This is the strange moment when a piece of raw ‘zombie’ meat seems to creep out of a restaurant’s food plate before falling to the ground. The video was posted on Facebook by Rie Phillips, from Florida, two weeks ago and since then it has become a viral phenomenon, with more than four million views.
The video shows a piece of raw meat on the plate in an unidentified restaurant. Suddenly, a part of skinless meat moves forward, crawling out of the plate. When he falls on the table, he turns and the woman he is recording screams. The meat again has jerky movements, which causes it to fall off the table before the woman screams again. And how could it be otherwise, Internet users have come up with a lot of theories about how the meat moved, some suggested it was false and others suggested that the nerve endings in the meat could have allowed it to move.
However, most skeptical believe that someone put a piece of thread to the meat to move it. But there were also people who assured that this video shows that the zombie apocalypse and that it can happen at any time. Moreover, they recalled a study conducted in 2015 and published in the prestigious British Medical Journal, in which researchers from Kent State University in Ohio used a zombie virus to demonstrate exactly how such a pandemic could be spread by the world and the devastating effects on humanity.
The study entitled “The Zombie Infections: Epidemiology, Treatment, and Prevention” used as examples the Solanum virus, the rabies virus, and the spread of the Trixie virus. The researchers discovered by surprise that certain infections could cause a true zombie apocalypse, such as black plague or mad cow disease, and that the spread of Yersinia pestis (bubonic plague) and cordyceps fungus (mad cow disease) they are viruses that could be transmitted more easily through bites.
But this is not the only study on the subject. In 2003 the “Zombie Survival Guide” was published, where they offered recommendations to prepare for a large-scale infection of bacteria or viruses with the ability to transform people into true living dead. The guide was developed to help governments around the world cope with the reality of zombies.
Who knows if this piece of meat moving could be infected with some kind of zombie virus. It’s a possibility.
What is your opinion about the zombie meat of the video?
