Widespread Invasion Mapped in the UK

We have been advised of a major zombie infestation in the UK. Here is the message that we received. It was somewhat garbled and was cut off before its conclusion:

On behalf of our client allfancydress.com, and in the spirit of Halloween, we at Crafted have designed and built a “Zombie Invasion” microsite. The project comprises an interactive map that displays “zombie infestations” across the UK (using data collected from allfancydress.com sales data, with customers represented as zombies on the map), and some fun survival tips for lasting through the oncoming zombie apocalypse. With Halloween almost upon us, this could be a great feature to share with your readers via a placement on your website.

A link to the Zombie Invasion site is below:

While the cover story may be that this site is tracking sales, we have contacted friends in England who tell us that there are more zombies than usual out and about.  Our relatives in Sotterley, Suffolk report that they are safe, however reports of zombies in the surrounding areas are increasing.  Shamina in Sidcup, South of London tells us that she and her family have been trapped in their home for the past 72 hours.  We have asked our operative Paul from Dartford to assist her.  He has extensive military training and a high level security clearance and is in contact with government officials.  Our former home in Bexleyheath has been overrun and our landlord is now evidently a zombie.  The role that allfancydress.com has played in the epidemic is unclear, however photos and information on their site indicate that they are encouraging people to turn.

The Pentagon Has a Plan to Stop the Zombie Apocalypse… And Here It Is

The U.S. military has a document called CONOP 8888. It’s a zombie survival plan that details how to neutralize the undead.

“This plan fulfills fictional contingency planning guidance tasking for U.S. Strategic Command to develop a comprehensive [plan] to undertake military operations to preserve ‘non-zombie’ humans from the threats posed by a zombie horde,” CONOP 8888’s summary reads. “Because zombies pose a threat to all non-zombie human life, [Strategic Command] will be prepared to preserve the sanctity of human life and conduct operations in support of any human population — including traditional adversaries.”

Here is the text of the plan to assist you with your own planning activities and to coordinate with US Armed Forces:

Zombie Attacks Continue in Florida

According to this story by WPTV News in West Palm Beach Florida, apparent zombie attacks are continuing.  The last attack took place in Manatee County.  The suspected zombie, according to a Manatee Sheriff’s Office report, ate human flesh and wouldn’t go down without a fight.  It is unknown whether his victim has become infected.

Previous to this attack, two others have been reported in Florida.  A face eating zombie was taken down by police in Miami on May 26, 2012.  Another attack was reported in a Naples hospital on June 16.  A similar attack was reported in Lafayette, LA in early June.

Baffling illness in Africa turns children into ‘mindless zombies’

World Health Organization is on high alert about new Ugandan outbreak, cause is not fully known.

As reported by CNN and DailyTech, Africa may be ground zero for the latest confirmed zombie outbreak, with a disease outbreak in Uganda.  Symptoms will sound familiar:  seizures, violent behavior in some (debated), personality changes, and a host of other unusual symptoms.

According to DailyTech,

The Uganda infections, though, are a new outbreak — a troubling sign.  The jump into a new region could be pure coincidence, or it could indicate the disease has become more virulent or found a new transmissions vector.

 

Infected Areas in Africa

Infected Areas in Africa

Even more tragic, this outbreak is infecting mostly children aged 5-15.  The cause is unknown and attempted cures have proven to be ineffective.  The likelihood of transmission globally is unknown.  Given the highly globalized environment in which we live, it is entirely possible that this outbreak will spread beyond Africa.  Exotic diseases have spread from this continent to the rest of the world in the past.

The DailyTech correspondent goes on to say,

Yet the WHO and CDC are not fully sure what is causing the illness, which cripples children and turns them into mindless, violence-prone zombies.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization along with a variety of relief organizations are venturing into the area to study this outbreak, to provide relief to the stricken, and to hopefully find a cure.

Ancient Irish Zombies Discovered

It would appear that the coming of the zombie apocalypse is nothing new.

Archeologists have discovered two skeletons that they characterized as belonging to the ranks of “the walking dead”.

The bones, which date back to the 8th century, are almost entirely intact and would be otherwise unremarkable examples of decomposed bodies, except that these had large stones forcibly inserted into their mouths.

Discovery News reports:

The “deviant burials” were comprised of two men who were buried there at different times in the 700s.

One of the men was between 40 and 60 years old, and the other was a young adult, probably between 20 and 30 years old. The two men were laid side by side and each had a baseball-sized rock shoved in his mouth.

“One of them was lying with his head looking straight up. A large black stone had been deliberately thrust into his mouth,” Chris Read, head of Applied Archaeology at IT Sligo, said.

“The other had his head turned to the side and had an even larger stone wedged quite violently into his mouth so that his jaws were almost dislocated,” he added.

Archeologists have seen this practice before. Stones have been found in the mouths of other ancient corpses, but in those instances, it was always in an effort to prevent the body from rising as a vampire. At the time these bodies were buried, there was no such mythology in place (vampires don’t appear in lore until the 1500s), so researchers believe that these particular corpses were suspected of being zombies.

More specifically, these two dead men are suspected of being criminals who society feared might continue their evil ways beyond the grave. In ancient Irish folklore, after a person dies, their soul escapes through the mouth, leaving an empty vessel. If the spirit (or another evil spirit) were to return to the body, it could reanimate it. By placing a rock in a dead body’s mouth, the corpse is sealed off from intrusion by other spirits.

It would appear that 8th-century Irish farmers had more challenges than planting fields and tending livestock.

Zombie Invasion Reported by Newsweek

There are some who doubt that zombies pose a serious threat.  For those doubters, we point out that Newsweek, a credible source of information, reported massive zombie attacks in a June 11, 2010 news article on their web site.  Newsweek took this information down shortly after it appears.  We believe this was done at the request of U.S. Government officials to stem mass panic.  The government has been slow to react to the growing zombie menace.  It is only recently that the CDC has started to advise the populace on how to prepare for the zombie apocalypse.

A Newsweek spokesperson later claimed that this was a practical joke perpetrated by their staff.  She said that programmers had hidden an “Easter egg” on the site to have “a bit of fun” and that “now that we’ve all had a laugh, we will be removing it.”

While Newsweek may be silenced, we will not be.  Here is a screen capture of the article as it appeared on the Newsweek site before the pages were taken down:

Zombies Attack!We must ask — What other news is being hidden from us?  How serious is the zombie menace?  We can only urge you to remain vigilant and be prepared for the worst.
