Zombies Could Actually Exist! (Sort Of)

The zombie apocalypse would almost certainly be the saddest way for the human race to go. But is it actually possible for us to rise from the dead as a self-cannibalising horde of mindless killers? Well, yes and no.

As ASAPScience explains, we might not ever actually come back from the dead and eat each other's brains, but a 28 Days Later-like zombie virus could potentially bring the whole human race down. [ASAPScience]


    While (thankfully,) human zombies are the stuff of fiction, a certain type of fungus is known to infect ants into a zombie like state: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ophiocordyceps_unilateralis

      I think we should genetically modify said fungus to make super soldiers that in turn start infecting everyone and only a handful of charismatic hollywood types survive

    aren't the charismatic ones the first to get eaten?
