I think you need to read less fiction and more science. Thanks.

I have just read this thread through, and would I be right in assuming that it has taken 3, nay 4 pages to conclude that the whole thing is absurd, and based solely on the fact that someone got confused between a genus of plant and a fictional virus? My head hurts.

Solanum is actualy a real virus.


Hahahaha. *Smashes head despondently against laptop keyboard* Proof, witnesses, evidence, victims?

Speaking of zombies, is anyone watching Dead Set? Bring on the gore! tongue.gif

I know bat_fish, the fact that the OP even said oops my bad and he was ignored is very funny. He's started something that no-one can finish! Well maybe if there was a zombie invasion but I'm not holding my breath.

BTW Yea and its great, rock on Davina zombie!!

I know, maybe one day we'll all be proved wrong by there being a zombie invasion, and someone will finally declare this stupid thing closed, but until then, might as well argue with a nice talkative brick wall. tongue.gif

Go Davina!Zombie !
Although, me and my friend had this conversation before, I thought she was one to start with! tongue.gif

No one knows what botox like injections shes having, or whats in them, HEY it could be Solanum! But I'm starting to think everyone should stop arguing over who's right and who's wrong and start giving more evidence instead of voicing simply opinions which don't have any evidence. ASK WHY not HOW!!  

Ok rant over tongue.gif Can we please close this now, can we safely call this thing a draw and move on tongue.gif

OH MY GOD DAVINA MCCALL IS HAVING SOLANUM INJECTIONS!
Now there's a proper zombie thread I want to see.  yes.gif

Yes I agree, our lives would all benefit from the end of this thread, or at least some real, unrefutable evidence for or against the topic. The whole, does a Solanum-like virus actually exist, not this vegetable-genus-become-a-zombie-through-eating-a-tatie bull****. If people stopped wanting to prove others wrong on principal, rather than the actual subject matter, and arguing over who's right and who's not, we might actually get somewhere.  thumbsup.gif

ok, signed up specifically to reply to this because I've been a non believer, but still paranoid about, the existance of zombies. Yes, I read the book, and spent hours researching the "Solanum Virus" in government, scientific, and research sites.  Solanum is a plant genus, but the various viruses that attack the plants, causing mottling, lesions, "bleeding" wounds and various other "zombie-like" qualities typically associated with the movie **EDIT** are in fact real. The virus described in the book does not claim that "solanum" is the actually name of the virus itself, only that a scientist called it this, probably assuming that it was a mutation of the viruses affecting these species. I do not endorse this as proof that the book is real, however, there are many virus that can mimic the symptoms of zombism, and anyone with half a mind knows that viruses do mutate on a constant basis.  I encourage all of you to learn to think for yourselves rather than simply accepting that there is no threat or that there is based on what the god in the tv tells you. I, before my daughter was born, was majoring in genetics in college before being forced to drop out. Knowing viruses mutate is what caused my own fears, not some hollywood hyped up horror movie. As far as a giant government cover up, not likely with something so supposedly wide spread. But being lied to about what's really going on, it's happened time and time again. Propaganda is an evil thing. Only knowledge can defeat it. Turn off the tube and open a damned book.

Welcome aboard, Mystic.  I hope you enjoy your stay at U, and I know you will find lots of topics in all sorts of field that may strike your fancy.

That said, perhaps you might find more discussion in a more current topic, rather than one that hasn't been responded in since last year (although oddly appropriate for a zombie topic).

It is not a real virus.

The only real Solanum in science is the plants known as nightshades, horsenettles and relatives

The truth you all have been looking for is both yes and no. also pardon my spelling
the truth is that you can make such a virus. sienctise have been working on how the brain can live even after the body has died.
and how such a thing can go into there research on how humans can live longer and can make one immortal.
It is possible to make a virus as sience has shown in the years. and it is possible for one to be immortal.
for a virus can change RNA And DNA And can have various effects on the human body. as i will tell you now.  if you can make a virus or gentically engeneer a virus which sience has proven. then you can make it where it can help the human body stay rejuvanated on a dayley basiss.
also some virus can replace and kill the human bodys cell. but if you can make it where it can help but kill your red blood cells only or not and works like the red blood cells. like that hting they take from unborn children. but if you could make it hlep keep you alive or even make you immortal then you have a imortallity serum. also you would want to make it where it will die if enters another person. so you make it copy or change the type of blood sample one would need for a transfusion like it can change the blood type inside the human body to one like lets call it F and it won't beable to be transfered to any one without that type of cell thing. and it could have both negative and hlepfull effects on the brain. so there must be alot of testing befor selling it to tose with the money. and soon a cheap knock off of such a serum will have many negative effects on one mind if it was stolen dureing the early stages or if it was made from a to bit sientist which make people or recently dead people come to life that have not had there body fulids drained repaired and do's infact bring a need to feed process into the mix but have the ability to think in some degree. and is able to effect any one it come in contact with.  also i could still have the effect that they need to eat to live or not. and shoting them in the head could work to maybe. but remmeber that such a thing could be tested in africa. which noone really cares much about. and can be easily contained. ifthe host do just need to eat to live. and there is something in the human flesh that makes canables want to eat humans and there a parasite that can make ones blood coagulate and cause zombiefication in a sence you kindof dead but not and you do you normal things that you always have done. and nothing else and don't talk as much or anything. but its rare for one to get such a parrisite now a days unless your in the amazon of africa.
