Okay, so I'm sure we all have the certain someone in our lives that chooses to believe that there's actually an inevitable zombie apocalypse coming soon and has taken every precaution to prepare for it.
Maybe not, but I'm sure you know the type.
Alright, I personally believe that ^this^ is a bit, well, overcautious, to put in the most polite terms possible.
I highly, highly doubt there is an actual zombie epidemic on the brink of being set free.
But I question you: Is there any chance that something akin to what we see in the movies could happen in the real world?
No, I am not one of those psychopaths who keeps a survival shelter in my basement. I was wondering, if the factors were just perfect, something somewhat like that could *possibly* be made.
It doesn't have to be exactly like the big outbreaks we see in the movies, but I was wondering if there's a possibility that something that alters the mind; like, say, rabies; could be modified, it could make humans somewhat aggressive and zombie-like. It doesn't seem like the most plausible thing, since the virus would have to have a way to be transmitted to a lot of people to have a considerable effect, and then said 'infected' would have to move the virus around enough to create a considerable 'epidemic' kind of scenario.
Even given the immense implausibility, could a considerable zombie-like scenario be created, if all the factors were just *perfect*?
Could a 'zombie virus' possibly be created with just the right conditions?
