Imagine someone infected with a disease, and acting differently. Different than they were before this infection. The disease would fuck up the brain, and could be spread. Does it sound like a horror movie? Well, my friend think again. There are plenty of chemicals, parasites, fungus, and chemicals in the world that affect the brain and could cause someone to become a Zombie. In real life, this “Zombie” wouldn’t eat brains or ant gross shit like that but it could spread the virus. We all know that a virus CAN mutate into something really fucking bad.
Let’s talk about the walking dead.
The origin of Zombies began in Haiti as some sort of voodoo slave labor. This is what would happen: the chosen man or woman would be force fed a mixture of the skin of toads and puffer fish. Sometimes, they would even be rubbed with it. The skin of toads can actually kill people but interestingly enough,it also works as a kind of pain killer. The puffer fish is really fucking poisonous. It puts you in a coma in a near “death” state. The poisoned “dead” person would then be buried, and would be in the ground for about eight hours. They would then be dug up, and fed Datura, a plant with crazy ass side effects. Datura fucks with your reality, and then destroys your memories, so you don’t know what day it is, where you are, and can make you forget who you are. These “zombies” are in a state of induced psychotic delirium.” The brainwashed and once “dead” people, would then be sold into slavery and do what they were told without thinking about it. They couldn’t think for themselves. Symptoms of Hatian Voodoo work: delirium or dementia, blurred vision, changes in the way you walk, hallucinations, lack of coordination (stumbling and falling), muscle twitching, muscle stiffness, myoclonic jerks or seizures, jumpy feelings, Personality changes, super confusion, disorientation, sleepiness, and major speech impairment. Don’t let any creepy people feed you, or rub anything on you if you’re ever in Haiti. And that’s my story of the first Zombies.
