Please people for the sake of argument let's agree that there are totally "sane" people out there that model their behavior after vamps. of literature and/or movies and even drink blood of donor. That is their life style,their mental mind-set, maybe from 7:00P.M. to midnight and after that they go back "home", go to bed, get up and go to work until they adopt their vamp. life style for another night on the town.The ones that worry me are the ones that kill for blood, feed on the spot, and vanish as quickly as the came. They do exist whether one chooses to accept it or not.

what are you even talking about?!

grown people working 9-5s, that when they get home from work, don some black leather, some make up, and go hang out with other like minded individuals and listen to techno and drink each others blood....but gotta be home by 12am so they can get up by 8am to make it to the office on time?

people that just do this might be choosing some percieved "lifestyle"...but they are still committing an act of cannibalism.  and even worse, being a poser.  those individuals that didn't get enough hugs as kids and ACTAULLY "think" (that is read, "play pretend") they need to dress up and be vampires all the time and they "crave" and "drink human blood", yet are unwilling to acknowledge that the whole vampire mythos has only existed a couple hundred years....and the sexy blood drinking variety for barely over a century; those individuals are so lost in their self absorbed pseudo-reality, they fail to see why most "rational" people think they are behaving irrational in their "fantasy" world.  but the "sane" people that only want to "live" in this world when "they're out on the town" because the allure of imbibing human blood is such an attractive and exciting idea .....that's just absurd, man. :no:

During the first four seasons of the show, he works as a private detective in a fictionalized version of Los Angeles, California, where he and a variety of associates work to "help the helpless" and to restore the faith and save the souls of those who have lost their way.

She also faces the prospect of a potentially deadly reunion with her beloved that is a far cry from the one she'd hoped for.

So, theyre not real.
Also, where is your source for all of that? http://www.hellhorro...ry_of_vampires/ This it?

But as for
140
"Reign of Longinus, Rome's Vampire Emperor.
773
Charlemagne defeats Quadilla the Vampire thus saving Rome"

That doesnt even make sense, and isnt true in the slightest. Probably because Romes ruler at that time was antoninus pius. Also, charlemagne (wanna be ruler of them) and his story of fighting that vampire isnt anywhere for me to see.
Id really check your sources next time, as im sure much other parts of it are flawed.

Wow that is a massively messed up list. I think I broke the "Didn't Happen" button.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Just because you're obsessed with something doesn't mean other people have to respect that. Nor does someone finding a donor negate the fact the eating or drinking of flesh or blood of your own species is cannabalism. It just is. Just because you find the term cannibal taboo, doesn't mean people can't use the term. Have some respect.
I'm not obsessed with anything, and I've got to agree with the drinking of blood to be cannibalistic to a certain extent. I do not find the term taboo, and if you knew me, you'd find me to be very respectful.

You took my post entirely the wrong way. :rofl:

i have read quite a few storys about these "modern day vampieres, but i think there is no such thing, as i have yet to see one with the typical fangs, that come out and they can retract at will...
i think people that claim to be a vampire are attracted by the whole 'loner, mystic and romantic air' around them.
the mind is a powerfull thing, and i think if someone hasnt got alot else in their life, people can convince themselfs to be allsorts.
i have read before, there is even 'clans' of vampires, that feast on each others blood, or a vampire that has a "spechial" person they feed of. to me that is more bdsm than anything else....they never break into a strangers bedroom, and carry them off etc..:OP o.0

i do know there is "enegy vampieres" tho, that try and feed on your enegy. if you let them, is up to you. :)

Wow, Just the name "Modern Day Vampires" makes me NOT believe. If they are like anything u see on tv they're probably fake. I seriously doubt a real vamp would come out to us. And if they were real i just doubt they would even look human. The whole design of our bodies was mostly made to excercise and be healthy with lots of water,(some of us can over eat yes,)but over drink BLOOD, actually it would be dangerous, specially if ur body is that of a human design. if vamps were real or are, I just dont think they can look like us and "live amongst us" and never age. its just not realistic to me. we live to die. why would a creatures body be designed to live forever? to be immortal and beautiful,to never age, those are all the things a human wouldnt mind; because its what the media has fed us on tv, magazines,celebrities. A vampire seems like the perfect pill to take, to avoid reality if u ask me..mann i used to be so into this crap when i was like 15 :devil:  lol i even wore those fangs that look real lol :w00t:  i feel bad for real adults who actually into this still, theres so much to life still.. :blink:

Were not IT..were just the other side, the empty unimportant consiquence trying to be a problem and solve itself..we are stuck, we are shadows, an echo of reality.

I could tell u how to make a true vampire. the truth is that a true  vampires can exsist if u make it exsist. AKA Gentic enginearing.  make what u want and make it happen. look at the blood drinking bat. it needs blood to survive. which is explaned but i don't want to look it up at all.  but aging the so caled immortallity serum which cna be made. but u can still die. if shot. or sikeness. but there's many things i have studyed and immortallity is one of them. and it is a possibllity. oh and myths come from legends that come from stroys which are from truth. like romeo and julleit. that stry was to be based of of a legend of two lovers and in 2008 they found the bodys of both of those lovers with a dagger and a cup in one of there hands. burried togheter. now i tell u this. u can't say if its true or not. if u look for it then it will eventully show. if u desire it then it will show.  now that u metion it. i could be considered a mind sapping vampir. one that can cause mental harm. but i don't feel anything when i do so. LOL just kiding or am I? one cannot truely estimate the impact if they found out that the goverment is studing vampieism. or how to make a supersolder from such research. i point u to the nazi rageim of hitler. 25 years far move advanced then any othere nation back then. with many supernatuale expriments one which was for a super solder that can fight for him. some of the research which are still hidden and not found of yet to date. with vage stroys about the locaton of such research faccilitys. it is possible aging to make a vampier and a possible immortallity serum. and if u say such negative things u will never know if its true or not. if u look for it if u seek it u will find it. if in the best case or the worst case u will find it. if u get up and look. no one will do it for u. look for it in scriptures and in old books. which alot where burned or destoryed by the nazis in europe.
