BOFFINS CREATES ZOMBIE DOGS

http://www.news.com.au/story/0,10117,15739502-13762,00.html

Eerie ... boffins have brought dead dogs back to life, in the name of science. SCIENTISTS have created eerie zombie dogs, reanimating the canines after several hours of clinical death in attempts to develop suspended animation for humans.

US scientists have succeeded in reviving the dogs after three hours of clinical death, paving the way for trials on humans within years.
Pittsburgh's Safar Centre for Resuscitation Research has developed a technique in which subject's veins are drained of blood and filled with an ice-cold salt solution.

The animals are considered scientifically dead, as they stop breathing and have no heartbeat or brain activity.

But three hours later, their blood is replaced and the zombie dogs are brought back to life with an electric shock.

Plans to test the technique on humans should be realised within a year, according to the Safar Centre.

However rather than sending people to sleep for years, then bringing them back to life to benefit from medical advances, the boffins would be happy to keep people in this state for just a few hours,

But even this should be enough to save lives such as battlefield casualties and victims of stabbings or gunshot wounds, who have suffered huge blood loss.

During the procedure blood is replaced with saline solution at a few degrees above zero. The dogs' body temperature drops to only 7C, compared with the usual 37C, inducing a state of hypothermia before death.

Although the animals are clinically dead, their tissues and organs are perfectly preserved.

Damaged blood vessels and tissues can then be repaired via surgery. The dogs are brought back to life by returning the blood to their bodies,giving them 100 per cent oxygen and applying electric shocks to restart their hearts.

Tests show they are perfectly normal, with no brain damage.

"The results are stunning. I think in 10 years we will be able to prevent death in a certain segment of those using this technology," said one US battlefield doctor.


-I can't believe this is freakin' real.  Milt ! Roger! Brian Jung(porn) your zombie filled fantasies await you in the world of tomorrow!

OK, time to build our fortresses out in the Northern wilderness and stock up on ammo and MRE's.  This marks the start of the zombie attacks!  Good thing I have several copies of the Zombie Survival Guide in my personal library.

forgive me for going to this level... but I have given far too much thought to the idea of a zombie attack and have decided that a permanent command base/fortress/safehouse would best be placed in the open desert.  Assuming you had all the supplies you need for a long stay.  I say this because you will have two natural elements working for you.  First the desert sun would make the burning, stinking flesh of the incoming zombies or those who fall victim to them, an early warning system of sorts.  Second, the vultures in the area would circle in the sky when they approach,  giving the survivors in the base ample time to prepare for a skirmish...vultures are far better a tool than motion sensors, imagine that.

Ahh.. then if it's a desert fortress you are after, the thing to do is go to Palm Springs (I no longer live there so you are free to use my zombie plan here) and take over the Aerial Tramway.  Ride the thing to the Mountain Station up top and then shut it down.  Nothing will be able to climb up the sheer cliffs of the mountain from the desert below and the station has a fully stocked resturant and amentities.

Hey Dennis!

We're now in West Michigan (near Grand Rapids).  Due to the move and the fact that our first kid is due in a matter of weeks, we weren't able to make it to the summer Gathering   Sad    Which only gives me more time to train for the Winter one.  *grins*

Congrats on your first, soon to come, kid.  That is really great.  I look forward to seeing you at the summer gathering.  We'll see if having a family of your own will change your fight attitude.

Speaking of zombies, I have heard a theory that under realistic conditions, a reanimated being would only last as long as its muscles are capable of being fed the nerve impulses that are said to be the only thing that keeps zombies going.  After the muscles atrophy and rot away completely (like any other organic matter within a relatively short period of time), the bodies collapse and are useless.

So, I guess I can keep the zombie fortress low on the priority scale.  Or high, depending on some other threat that might warrant its construction.

 This is only true until they make a sequel.

I don't know how many of them it would have taken to whip my ass, but I knew how many they were going to use. That's a handy little piece of information.

Not Only the sequels, but you ahve to beware of the remakes of the sequels too.
