    If you’re gonna do the conspiracy thing of thinning the heard, at least tie it into the Hong Kong protests. The virus started just across the border from HK.

    If you wanna get super weird, SARS started in 2002/2003 and there were protests in HK in 2002-2003 over a new law about prohibiting treasonous acts against China. Sound familiar? And SARS started in the same region as this new virus... just across the border from HK.

    Putting the tin foil hat away, that region in China sees the most random number of ships from other countries, is the fastest growing province (****** construction due to how quickly they grew), and is known for their large open air markets with fish and other goods just sitting out for days. It’s just a bit dirty and needs some health standards to reduce these kind of outbreaks.

    imo, pursue a dual pronged approach with a virus to take care of the elderly and then prescribe a bunch of opioids to take care of the young poor. Booyeah

    They wouldn't be the only government that's been theorized to plant things to make sure those on the bottom stay there.

    Maybe a plague, but not a zombie situation.

    Need zombies for that, and unfortunately, this isn't it.

    How do you know? Maybe this is just the start. A new contagious virus let out in public meant to kill a certain percentage of the population has unintended results. Isn't that the plot of about a dozen zombie apocalypse movies?

    Yeah...except zombie movies have people that have died or close to it, that are going around eating humans or biting them and turning them into zombies.

    A virus going crazy is more of an 'Outbreak' kind of thing, I think. Or that one with Marky Mark where everyone catches it and kills themselves. That would be pretty fascinating to watch happen too.

    I want to see the zombie apocalypse just to see how it all goes down. Like, would it really spread so fast that our technology/weaponry wouldn't be able to stop it?

    Nice knowing you, everyone. We're doomed. it's going to spread so fast now that it's reached a place where a weekly shower is considered going overboard.

    This sounds more like The Stand from Stephen King than a zombie apocalypse. Now, where is Randal Flagg?

    Did they catch it at the airport when screening incoming passengers?

    That book was so well-done I couldn't finish it. It was just too overwhelmingly depressing.

    Liked the movie. Bit cheesy compared to the book/subject matter but good.
