30 Day Challenge: Day 11

Family.

An uneasy topic to discuss, primarily because my viewpoint has been skewed  over the past years. They say family is forever which I agree on, but I have come to conclude your family is whatever you want it to be whether it be friends or your creepy collection of troll dolls. Family is what you make of it, plain and simple. We should strive to keep that family in our lives regardless of what they do, say, or think towards you because they will always be there for you in times of need; mine has and i’m eternally grateful for what they have done for me.

My sister is the closest thing I have to a twin, shes always around and hanging out with her is the craziest.
My brothers are never in sight as I have moved away from them, but the time I have spent with them are always cherished memories.
My father is stern, cold, hard-headed, and somewhat airy, but theres one thing that he will always do best. Love me.
My mother is lost in translation, nowhere to be found or heard, instead replaced by stepmothers after another.
My extended family are the ones I don’t know very well at all, I rarely talk to them and family reunions are awkward at most. Nothing much I can do, but I hope that I can come to know them better down the line.

Zombies? Or Undisputed Idiocy?

We all know the events that happened last Saturday; a man who has served faithfully in his church with a family suddenly turned rampant on the streets of Miami and snacked on one of his fellow kin’s flesh.
When taken into retrospect it sounds like something that flew straight from Resident Evil: Degeneration or even The Walking dead, but we all know of its fictional nature.

But lately we have found truth stranger than fiction.

Zombie

They might not look like this, but they’ll still be terrible at making friends.

The signs of a possible “Zombie Apocalypse” dawns nearer, but authorities proclaim the Bath Salts sold legally online are the cause of the situations…the situations that have been publicly released in a week. When it comes to probability, a number of people taking bath salts and then becoming cannibals at around the same time it seems ludicrous, but don’t start thinking that I am preparing for the worst by purchasing ammo and ballistic machinery by the bulk.
By nature I am a skeptic, one who doesn’t stick to one side untill the right info has come to surface before taking action. These stories are all the hype more so because of our modern infatuation with Zombies. (I am guilty, I like Zombies and if I didn’t, my MTG deck would be composed of werewolves and vampires {Which would be most unfavorable}.) People are now choosing friends based on the tactics that would serve better in a flesh-eating catastrophe and many of them want it to happen.

I am not one of those people, which is why I disagree with any kind of forthcoming apocalypse; I would much rather stay home, awaiting the release of Halo 4 by practicing my skills with a DMR instead of worrying about people and the possibility that they may have an appetite for my grey matter. …and then we go to the evidence.

  • Hazmat crews were called into Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport to investigate the source of an “unknown chemical”, sending a number of people to the hospital.
  • 41-year-old Dr. Zachary Bird, was arrested by the Florida Highway Patrol near Orlando, charged with battery charges for spitting blood in a officer’s face. They say he was “extremely agitated and enraged” then proceeded to repeatedly bang his head on the patrol car until he bled.
  • A strange rash was reported at a school around the same district as Fort Lauderdale. A Hazmat team was once again called in to investigate, and left without any explanation of the rashes origin.
  • A disoriented Canadian man was arrested aboard an American Airlines plane after he attempted to rush the cockpit. The plane had just landed in Miami shortly before.
  • In Hackensack, New Jersey, a man was rushed to the hospital after he cut out his own intestines and threw them at police officers.

Whatever is happening in Florida and the surrounding area seems to be spreading, not fast, but fast enough for the University of Illinois to tweet the following warning to its students one night: “Hazardous materials released at Institute for Genomic Biology. Escape area if safe to do so. Otherwise seek shelter.”
I don’t know about you but this info seems concrete enough to at least explain some of the incidents, however the possibility of a humanity-threating event is too farfetched for what “experts” say could happen–very reassuring for someone who read World War Z. It could very well be a relation to drugs such as LSD and an overdose in cocane…or the bath salts; people simply being stupid enough to take them.

So what do you think?

I’m sure that this will come to pass and the strange events will become part of a history that will certainly be printed in every Biological Studies workbook.  Let’s cross our fingers and knock on some wood. Mahogany for added measure.
