The 2012 'Zombie' Trend & The Strange Events Occurring Worldwide 7/6 Update

The 2012 'Zombie' Trend
& The Strange Events Occurring Worldwide

Well it's been a month since the gruesome attack in Miami that left a homeless man without a face, an incident that opened the eyes of the world as the strange attacks kept up and a startling trend emerged. Over the last month "Zombie" & "Cannibal" were the most used terms in social media, and with Professional entities also succumbing to the trend in the forms of college classes and mass "social experiments & games"- virtually every outlet that could use the terms has abused it  as well. Blurred amongst the thousands of repetitive articles are daily examples of the strange trend continuing at a relatively consistent pace.

Twenty twelve is apparently the year where people really ate each other up, as if the rest of what is going on in the world today isn't enough to scare the living crap out of you. So far what this year has amounted to has been nothing short of crazy. Nonexistent winter? Check. April fireballs? Check.  A bunch of rare astronomy events? Check. Horrific tornado outbreaks and strange weather? Double Check. Unexplained animal deaths? Check. Asteroids coming way too close for comfort? Check. Financial woes? Check. Solar flares? Check. Flesh-Eating Viruses, Superbugs & Plagues? Check. Early hurricane season? Check. "Zombie-like" & Cannibal attacks? Check. Leprechauns attacks? Check. Volcano eruptions and strong earthquakes? Check. 2012 is a jammed packed shitshow and  folks, we're far from done with it.

The zombie trend is one of the most alarming because we are far from primitive when it comes to our social interactions and expectations, the one area of our current world that has gone well beyond the realm of imagination. We can ignore a couple extra bad storms, use a little more hand sanitizer, and overlook the not easily understood- but people can't ignore people eating each other. We can handle the occasional horrifying news event, but when an event becomes a trend and a trend becomes a gruesome reality society just sits and stares at the wreck. Unable to process, eyes glued and not moving a bit.  It just continues, and the majority sits in a horrified awe.

Don't get me wrong, there are 7,000,000,000,000+ humans on Earth. 100+ events in a couple of months is really nothing to worry over when you do the math. Nothing to get too 'excited' about if you ask me. Regardless of the theorized causes (and boy the list really does go on) people are certainly biting each other a lot more, so I'd say now is a good time to remove 'bite me' from your vernacular. When I first started covering these events I honestly didn't think it would go on this long,  and am surprised I am still getting new events in everyday. I have decide that I will continue to post on these events until they stop happening for at least two weeks. Below are more events which are continued from the first list in the original post which can be found here: Is the Zombie Apocalypse Nigh? - June 24th UPDATE

The only question that I have in my mind is 'When will it end?'. It's an obvious answer to say that the actual causes of these incidences, whether correlated or not, are not the same. No matter how hard someone tries to find one answer for a string of events such as these the work usually proves futile. So whether the causes are- be it bath salts, synthetic marijuana, psychotic breaks in the normal realms of consciousness, a zombie-like virus or bacteria, engineered life inserted into an already over complicated equation, in the end it doesn't matter. What does matter is something I have stressed to  the point of retardation in this website. Preparedness. If you are not prepared for the unexpected, how will you ever be able to handle it? After all, people eating each other was about the last concern on my list of worrisome ponderings, where is it on yours?

P.F.S. I am currently working on an article that covers all of the possible 'causes' and theories involved in these incidents, it will be available 6/6/2012.

Gulf of Mexico - Tropical Depression Debby

Tropical Depression Debby

Tropical Storm Debby has been confusing weather forecasters and computer models all over the country. Debby, a storm with three separate turning centers has yet to allow a computer model to accurately predict where exactly she will head. I haven't seen a storm like this ever, but I have only been following hurricane season for a couple years now. As of June 25th, tropical storm warnings were issued for the Florida coast. Below is Debby's stats as a storm, which will be updated as updates become available.

  • Tropical storm Debby spawned two tornadoes in central Florida's Highland County, killing one person.
  • High winds associated with this storm closed the Florida Sunshine Skyway Bridge. 
  • On 6/25 Florida declares a state of emergency as Debby begins to soak the land. 
  • Tropical Storm Debby made landfall near Steinhatchee, Florida - 160 miles north of Tampa.
  • So far top rainfall in one area for Debby was recorded at 2 feet in towns south of Tallahassee.
  • Sophoppy FL was among one of the hardest towns hit so far as nearly 60 people phoned police for help finding their houses were completely surrounded by water.
  • The Suwannee River surged more than 25 feet in a day, which leaves it 4 feet above flood level. Another River, the Anclote- was also above flood stages on Tuesday- with water not expected to recede for at least another 48 hours. The Caloosahatche river overflowed as well, the wall separating the land from the water has disappeared entirely.
  • On Tuesday a mandatory evacuation was issued for 2,000+ homes located along the Cotee River, officials had to use boats to get the message out.
  • The storm also killed a manatee who was allegedly tied to a seawall by local residents near Tampa.
  • Tropical Storm Debby was downgraded at 8 PM on 6/26 to a tropical depression, however forecasters reported that it wasn't expected to lose its strength while it was over land.
  • Also, all warnings from the National Hurricane Center have been canceled. Only local flood warnings remain in effect. 
  • Tropical Depression/Storm Debby claimed the lives of three people in Polk, Highlands and Pinellas Counties. 
  • Debby maxed out as a tropical storm with winds of 60+ MPH

As of 6/28/2012 Debby is no longer a storm,
all warnings have been canceled and her remnants
are now an area of low pressure with a 10% chance of
forming a tropical cyclone within the next 24-48 hours.
