MKUltra, a research used by the CIA. It was focused on mind control and apparently ended in 1973.
That should have been the end of story, except in 2010 one of the soldiers, who subsequently was a medic, returned from wars in Iraq and Afghanistan reported that there were Zombies in the field. And while the CDC still states this was just a way to get people interested in preparing for "real possible disasters" you can't leave out their official Zombie Apocalypse blog post: Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse
If you think about the possibilities of using Biological Warfare, Zombies don't sound that incredulous. What would be the easiest way to take over a country? Add something to the one thing no human can live without, water. Contaminating a water source would, in my opinion, be the fastest way to renders people helpless. I know it all sounds so doom and gloom, but I'm going to agree with the CDC on one thing here, it's always better to be prepared.
For you science researchers out there you can add the Zombie Cell to your knowledge. Called Sandia's Cellular Statuettes in Sillica of course from what my mind can deduce from this is little to do with Zombies and more to do with creating weapons that live. In either case I'd have my shotguns ready! Since I live in Alabama I'm sure we'll outlive everyone else *grins* I mean what home in Alabama doesn't have a gun cabinet full of shotguns with ammo?
Just remember to double tap! While I love to joke about the Zombie Apocalypse, honestly the thought of some insane country using it to start a war wouldn't actually surprise me much. Since we live in the country, and obviously have a lot of free time on our hands, we've actually discussed what we'd do in the event of bio-terrorism event or invasion. For the most part it's a long standing running joke around here, but if it were ever to become real, we have a plan. Obviously we support the NRA, since we can't defend ourselves without guns.
So what to do in the event of a Zombie Apocalypse? First get out of any large metropolitan area. Obviously where there is a greater population, there will be more Zombies! Find a location that has well water not tapped into the city water line, since you don't know if the water is contaminated! Make sure you have shotguns and ammo, pretty self-explanatory! Get a group of trusted friends and stick together, friends that are good shots are obviously the best choices! Remember your basic needs: Food, Shelter, Water, and medical supplies. Who says you can't learn from television shows?
I'm not suggesting that a Zombie Apocalypse is imminent, but it never hurts to be prepared. Get your Zombie plan down and then you can rest easy. By the way there's plenty of land for sale in the country, LOL!
