  • The Sky is Falling

    A US spy satellite has lost power and can no longer be controlled. It will fall to Earth in late February or March. No prediction of where.

        The Zombie War? Wow, I didn't know they knew how the infection began.

          It's one of the offered explanations in the Romero zombie films.
          (It's heard in the background of both 'canon' versions of "Night Of The Living Dead" that a crashed satellite or Venus space probe has leaked radiation into the atmosphere)

          In World War Z the book there is no real explanation offered but according to the associated "Zombie Survival Guide" the virus seems to have been on Earth for millennia but held in check by the environment and secret societies and rituals (like cave burials in China).

          The flooding created by the construction of "Three Gorges Dam" may have been the cause (by allowing the pre-existing virus and infected corpses to occupy the flooded areas) but it may also have been Chinese germ warfare experiments.

              It does get dismissed in the same sentence that laughs off the possibility of it being caused by monkey's infected with Rage.
