The world is going mad!

Discussion in 'Off Topic' started by SpunkiSpirou, Jun 2, 2012.

  1. Seen a few boards about people eating people and cutting each other up into bits, here's another one from the front page of Yahoo:

    http://uk.news.yahoo.com/canadian-psycho-killed-chinese-student-police-050526530.html


    My only question with this article is what or where is the 'toronto suburb of scarborough' ?

    Just that the only Scarborough I know of is Scarborough, North Yorkshire. >>Feeling slightly worried<<

  2. It's in Ontario, Canada.
     
  3. I am starting to become mildly concerned. Odd things are happening!

    I mean when a man is caught chewing another mans face and is unaffected by a gunshot.. you can't help but think zombie apocolyspe?! Haha
     
  4. I wouldn't group this killing with the recent "zombie attacks". It's definitely odd; but, your typical "zombie" doesn't film the killing, chop of pieces, and mail them to the government.


    @SpunkiSpirouSpunkiSpirou - I don't really see any reason for concern. He's not a known serial killer, and he's now supposedly in France. There are probably 10,000 other ways that you could possibly die that are more likely.

  5. I'm pretty concerned now... but I wont be worried until there are over a dozen total incidents such as this. These are only stories that people have been able to tell, so you can imagine how many times this may have happened beyond the camera and news companies...

    And I should also state that the world has always been mad... so "going mad" isn't the term I would use.​
     
  6. I'm getting tired of all the "zombie apocalypse" bullshit.

  7. I agree. So fucking much.
    All of my social networking is just flooded with bad zombie jokes and shit like that.

    People everywhere after the face-eating incident seem like they're looking for straws to grasp at and call a zombie apocalypse.
    I don't understand how an obviously mentally imbalanced, cannibalistic man was warped into some sort of zombie fetish that's being milked for all it's worth.
     
  8. I really dislike those who are excited that there may be zombies. Yeah because that would be super awesome. I understand over reacting and "preparing"; but, some people just can't wait for it to happen.
     
  9. Hahahaha well... it is 2012 afterall. ;)
     
  10. I apologise if I have somehow irritated people by using the words "zombie apocolypse", it was just a joke! :B

    I think I will now resolve to go back to lurking instead of putting my foot in it!

  11. Think of this... each of these incidents are isolated and are not related to one another.
    Zombie apocolypse? People just jumping on the bandwagon or overreacting.

    I'm sick and tired of the whole "zombie apocalypse, it's so awsume!11!!!111" thing.

  12. The guy sniffed bath salts from what I know about the face chewing incident. So unless somehow there is a bath salts factory that explodes and they dissipate into our atmosphere so we all end up breathing it in, there's a very unlikely chance the zombie apocalypse is gonna happen. Aliens would visit us before that would happen or that would seem more likely.

    All these new stories of incidents are now popping up in the main-stream media because of the guy who chewed off the other guys face. It's just how the media works. They want to milk this out more.

    I can understand preparing just in case if anything bad is to happen, but really, I don't want to hear people all like 'YO THE ZOMBIES ARE COMING!!!!!!1!!!! Get ur gunz readyz!!!' since it's quite ridiculous and as I said, very un-likely it will happen.

    I might be a fan of zombie video games or zombies in general (as are many people) but if you come face to face with an actual one, you're gonna be shitting your pants and running away screaming for your mother when it comes running after you (that is, unless you can actually go ahead and kill it, I mean, I can see an instinct coming in but really, I don't think many people could stomach killing something that was one a human or a person they may have known).

    EDIT: Just saying this right now, I probably would not even survive a zombie apocalypse because I would be one of those people running away, screaming for my mommy.
     
  13. @SirkowskiiSirkowskii, I just have to correct you on one point - "when it comes running after you" - zombies don't run, they shuffle. :)
    (Everyday I'm shufflin' shufflin'). OTL But if they do run then we're more screwed. But glad that zombie apocalypses aren't gonna happen, right?

    Rofls. If they just shuffle, then we're okay. If they are runners...dear god...Let's not go hide in an amusement park lols.

    But yes, let's be happy it won't happen.

  15. If we hide in amusement parks it will be for the zombie's amusement xD
     
  16. Bath salts are an over the counter cocaine... Admittedly, I've done them a few times. I'm not a cannibal. Yet. :| reading about these people's actions and having an experimental drug as the reasoning makes me feel like they can't explain why these people did what they did ... So as always, drugs are the automatic reason. You know, not that he was a cannibal beforehand or had any preexisting mental imbalances...

  17. It could be very well likely that he did have some mental imbalances. Florida isn't the best when it comes to health care, especially care for those with mental problems.
     
  18. lmfao im really bugged by the use of the word psycho in that news article idk why
     
  19. That makes me feel better now. I thought we had another killer in NY. The only other killer I think we ever had was the Yorkshire Ripper.

    @SirkowskiiSirkowskii Some years back there was a dog fight in Harrogate where one dog ripped off another dogs face. Maybe there's dog zombies for years and people have only just started doing it themselves.

    Personally I don't believe in zombies, I don't think their real.

    I believe in vampires, werewolves, ghosts and faeries, but not zombies.

    In a game I would probs kill a zombie, if there were zombies in the game. I can't think of any zombies in games I play though. I've killed people in games with different types of weapons before, but I wouldn't go out in the street and attack random people and kill them. Well, if certain things got said/done THEN I would defo beat the crap out of whoever directed it.

    @NeonNeon What is OTL?

    @BexxyBexxy Oh wow never knew that, is that why US kids take them? I just saw something about it on Russell Howard once where he was talking about teens sniffing bath salts to get high and then the following week they were sniffing nutmeg or something and he said "Who's their dealer, Mr Kipling?" dead funny.

    All this talk about Zombies and the apocalypse just makes me think of Shaun of the Dead, such an awesome film!

  20. It's simple, the United States teens/kids are on probation and want to get the "Feeling" of being fucked up. People that have been throwing out products have been trying every way "to mimic" other drugs in society. It makes them a lot of money. Do some research on "K2-serenity" and similar shit, its the modern-day weed for those who are on probation, the laws seem to block/make people stop selling certain products, then a new product comes out that is very similar. It's been going on for years. Bath salts have been around for what, the past year or two? @BexxyBexxy


    I won't hide at all, I'd go to war with these bastards.:cool2:


    This.:thumbup:


    My buddy Brandon has a full run-down of it http://admin-talk.com/threads/6943/#post-45730


    Just like they said 2000 was going to be the end of the world, right?
