unanimous voices mention television shows such as "The Walking Dead" to movies such as "Dawn of the Dead" The descriptive details of undead hoards of brain eating creatures and sexually alluring men in the darkness of the night, sucking the blood of innocent women are common place. The modern views of these creatures are very similar. Both are known to be 'undead' which is defined as "technically dead but still animated" in the Oxford's Dictionary. Both creatures are driven by a instinctive hunger for sustenance from living victims. But surely this cannot be all there is to them.
The Zombie Autopsies Essay The Zombie Autopsies by Steven C. Schlozman is about an apocalypse of the human race and how all them were actually infected. They were all infected with a virus called Ataxic Neurodegenerative Satiety Deficiency Syndrome(ANSD). Dr. Blum and almost the rest of the population is already infected and the virus causes flesh-eating zombies to lunch. Other than what it causes them to do, the virus also drastically changes the way a human acts and behaves. As mentioned in the book that when a human get infected or catches this virus they would eventually be labeled as “No Longer Human”.
In the history of the world, we have had to prepare for wars and hurricanes, but how do you prepare for the zombie apocalypse? Many websites and magazines offer information on how to prepare but it may not be all you need. To prepare for this horrid time, the essentials to live are weapons, food, and the perfect hiding. First choose the best weapon. There is a vast quantity of weapons to choose from, but what can help the most when being attacked from everywhere by zombies?
In the event of a zombie pandemic the only sure thing is multitudes of deaths, confusion, and probable anarchy. Even though the popular zombie archetypes probably fictional creatures and some say due to that fact it’s unnecessary to prepare for them, I would offer the idea that it would be better to be prepared for a possible fictional zombie apocalypse rather than ignore potential danger to ourselves and loved ones. As the Boy Scout motto goes, “Always be prepared.” Considering the fact that there are a number of diseases and man-made substances which closely resembles the results of the zombie pandemic on the human body I would say that it’s quite possible that there is potential for the eventual tragedy. For example there’s the situation that took place recently in Florida involving a man behaving erratically, running around naked under the haze of delusions and anxiety leading him to attack and eat another man’s face. This event was attributed to the use of a synthetic drug one of which is increasingly used around the United States.

Ancillary One The increasing improvements in technologies slowly evolved people in our society into staggering creatures known as zombies. In the short passage, Chuck Klosterman informs to his readers how social media and Internet impairs our ability to think and act consciously. The endless advanced technologies force us to dedicate and rely our lives on technology. In order to inform the serious influences of technologies and to allow us to make changes, Chuck Klosterman used rhetorical strategies such as ethos, pathos, and logos by proposing that we are similar to zombies.

Vodun The Vodun Religion - I always associated the word Voodoo with evil, therefore in my ignorance I thought the religion would be evil also. To my astonishment when I sat in class and heard about the many similarities that exists among this faith, and other religions such as Shango, Shouter Baptist, Spiritual Baptist, Christianity and even Hinduism, I was truly enlightened and so, my thoughts were altered in a positive way. The loa named Legba, and his likeness for meat and alcohol drinks is very similar to the Shango’s reres and Powers, where alcohol and animals sacrifices form part of their offerings and ritual sacrifices. The offering of alcohol is also synonymous with many non- adherents of the Vodun religion because many of us are guilty of pouring a little alcohol on the floor at some point in time, with utterances such as ‘this is for the spirits’. This practice is so widespread that maybe there is a little Vodun, Shango, Shouter or Spiritual Baptist in most of us.
