This toes the line of too serious to make light of. He did nearly kill a guy...
OT: Zombie Attack in Miami
And even if it is...I've seen and had to deal with guys.....well..you just really don't want to live without a face. That's not even dark humor. It's as horrible as you'd imagine.
The thing I'm still trying to figure out is how were they BOTH naked?
As a future doctor, I am going to diagnose this as Excited Delirium (Syndrome) (Future Doctor = a joke haha lol lulz HALOL. I am not near being a doctor but am in the field and will be one one day). How crazy though. To be shot and continue to gnaw at another human's flesh. I know this is easily a story to poke fun at, I've done it a bit, but this really is scary. I sure as hell don't want to come across somebody who has literally lost control of their mind and body. BTW, if this really is an ED(S) case, in my humble opinion he most likely would have died anyway.
So, once his high is done he dies?
How in thee hell is this flamebait?! Good Lord some of you suck.
"Officials also believe that Eugene carried out the grisly attack after he was high on LSD. Officials say he portrays symptoms of "excited delirium" - a syndrome that turns drug users into raging "incredible Hulks". "I'm going by similarities in other cases of excited delirium I've researched in the last couple of days," said Aguilar, president for the Fraternal Order of Police."
That statement at the bottom of the article, from this link:
I'm not sure if you know or not, but is LSD use related to Excited Delirium?
Excited Delirium mostly comes from drug usage; I would think the nasty drug LSD could and would lead into an ED type behavior.
...Bath salt high. Similar to the guy and the goat:
My first thought was that it sounded like the guy was high on PCP. This case is eerily similar to the Big Lurch case.
File your link under my, "shit on the internet I wish I didn't see or read."
Don't ever click any links in a "face-eating assault" thread. I actually stumbled across a (alleged) photo of the victim's face earlier today. I couldn't close that tab fast enough.
Until I read about it earlier today. How bizarre. (I, of course, also stumbled across a "Free Big Lurch" website; classy people, stay classy.)
A new form of LSD and bath salt.
I'm not usually taken aback by anything I read anymore, but that is some seriously freaky shit.
Saw the pictures on reddit earlier today. I've seen some fucked up stuff on the internet before, but those are in contention for the most so.
What is reddit? I can't find it anywhere on the AOL. Can someone please post straight-forward instructions on how to view the zombie nom nom pics IN ENGLISH?
I stopped and paused right before clicking on it. I thought to myself that this is one of those "where were you when you first learned of the Zombie Apocalypse" moments. Oh well. I'm sure if/when the Zombies take over, MGoBlog will come through.
if he really was a zombie (I've watched too many movies to ignore that possibility), at least the police didn't get too close. It always spreads when an innocent bystander trys to restrain the zombie.
In all seriousness, eff PCP, why would anyone use it? One hit can ruin your life.
And did they double tap?
Who is going through this thread, being an ass, and negging everything but your comment is funny; even on this oh-so-"sensitive" subject.
Jenkem; drug of choice
So it begins....
You made me laugh out loud and I woke my wife up. Please guys, don't make me lose my morning iPhone in bed blog reading time.
I've refused to click. Just reading the title "Police shoot naked man eating someone's face" was way, way too much for me. And now someone posts it here at mgoblog, a sanctuary from such lunacy.
The site that invented flight tracking athletic directors? A site that photoshops (or more likely MS paints) the heads of UM students and bloggers into famous moments in history?
Mgoblog is many things, but a sanctuary for lunacy it is not.
The "alleged" photos of the guys face are pretty bad. Definately not something you want your kids to see. It is wise not to go hunting for things that will disturb your dreams.
I was in the back yard with my son this past weekend and we were chopping out the stump of an old rose bush with an axe and a pick-axe. Not the most elegant way to go about it, but effective. Anyway, the axe I was using was my father's and the head started to losen and began the process of sliding off the shaft. We remediated it with some shims and once we were done I had him hold it. I then said, "You know, you could just stand up with that axe, take one swing, and kill me." He nervously sat the axe down and I said, "and that, my son, is why you keep weapons away from the criminally insane, they can be one impulse away from ending your life." I know its dramatic, but he was asking about the face eating zombie and I tried to explain how much trust you have to have in complete strangers every day, the social contract, etc and when people aren't bound by those conventions, you have extremely dangerous conditions.
I started to post it and then I stopped. It was the most disturbing story I have ever seen. The first version I read said that they were naked and that it was in South Beach, and my thought was that humanity had reached a moral lowpoint. The next version said that they were homeless, and my reaction shifted to a guilt feeling about that level of desperation surrounded by luxurious wealth. Finally, it was somewhat of a relief to me to learn that it was a drug reaction which has apparently been observed several times already. Sounds like a good drug to lay off.
Looks like its Ray Gun time....Fuckin zombies ....
I question anything that leads off with a Huffington Post citation. I read that site and original journalism isn't a strong point.
that are highly topical in nature.
My anti-zombie oasis/fortress/lightly stocked laundry room is already full.
(Maybe just enough room to squeeze in a medium-sized undulating supermodel.)
Note to self... Next time when your at a party and they pass the bath salts around, just say "no thanks" and immediately leave the premisis.
I clicked thinking it would be a funny OT thread and find out this is f-ing real!! WTF is this world coming to? First zombie attacks, then our pets heads starting falling off? That's when the whores come in. Men laying their trick-money down. Dollars to pay the rent? Maybe instead i'll spend it on the whore.
Nice, you worked a Tommy Boy quote into a Zombie takeover thread.
"Our pets heads are falling off!" Just trying to justify smiles in a thread like this one - a seemingly funny at first glance but frightening real once you investigate further. My mind failed to calculate the reality of the situation.
This is too close to one of the Halloween episodes of one of the CSI shows. I was sorta hoping it was a hoax.
I grew up in DC in the ghetto in the 80's where PCP aka Love Boat was a very popular drug sadly stuff like this happened all the time they also called it Buck Nekkid because the user would always strip their clothes off and act crazy. There was an incident when I was a kid where an officer shot a suspect's whole chest out with a close range shotgun blast and the suspect still managed to fire a handgun and kill another officer and a pedestrian with basically no torso to speak of. It's nasty stuff but nothing new.
The idea that this was caused by LSD alone seems like a really big stretch. This guy had some sort of powerful stimulant in him.
I find it hard to see this as being LSD as well. I'm hearing bath salts too, but these all seem like red herrings to me (designed to throw us off the ZOMBIE APOCOLYPSE trail). There was one website saying bath salts is a "street version of LSD." I don't know about you guys, but how often have you recieved clinical doses of LSD? Yeah, unless you were around for the experiements in the 50's and 60's its doubtful that anything but street LSD is available. I also seriously doubt the chemical structure is remotely similar. Just terrible terrible misinformation. There's a good link about bath salts here and it states it is more similar to cat.
Until there is an autopsy / toxicology information that is released to the public its all just W.R. Hearst style fearmongering.
Unfortunately, a lot of the chemicals being developed to replace various illegal drugs are more dangerous than the original drugs themselves.
It seems there are a lot more inscrupulous chemists around these days. I blame the Russians. I read Pihkal in the early 90's and that really opened my eyes to the number of compounds that are highly psychoactive. Its insane. There's no real way to stay ahead of it, legislatively, because they (the bad chemists) can just go to a different compound with a completely different structure as long as it maintains some level of stability and is manufacturable on a commercial scale.
found nothing unusual. He spent the day partying around South Beach. Lab reports not due for a month or two, so commence the speculation. Let's hope it is not airborn.
Just plain, gross.
I thought about making a new thread but felt I would get blasted for such an OT thread. If anybody cares (in this 24 hour news cycle era where stories are forgotten in 72 hours - KONY 2012, anyone?!- most likely few do), the toxicology report on the Miami "face-chewing" incident came back yesterday. Marijuana. That's it. No LSD, PCP, or bath salts. Double U-Tee-Eff.
I mentioned last month that I thought it was a case of Excited Delirium; this still may actually be the case. Drug usage also made sense, but with none showing up out of 2 different laboroatory's testings, it's all the more bizarre a case. I still find this an interesting story, of course an unfortunate one, so I thought I'd mention the news.
