Happy April Fool's Day

Also known as the best day of the year to deploy the last phase of your nefarious world-domination plan, as nobody's going to believe anything they hear until it's April 2nd and CNN is still showing footage of cyborg monkeys plundering museums.

Remember: Paranoia is nothing but a keen sense of the repeatability of historical patterns.

Hopefully unrelated ETA: Just saw in BoingBoing these Zombie Stomper high heels:



I'm very disappointed. I'm not against the funky look, but those shoes are definitely not adequate to stomp zombies. I was hoping for something with more protection for the feet, steel or at least a nice composite material, maybe blades or a taser for those moments when a zombie grabs you by your feet.

ETA of just curious: If a vampire bites a corpse, do you get a zombie?

I don't care how impractical those shoes are for zombie stomping - I WANT. SO MUCH.

Well, you can always wear them to the post-Apocalypse "All Zombies Have Been Stomped, Thank You Very Much" party, I guess.

I could tell you, but I'd have to drink your blood.

According to the anime series Van Helsing, a vampire's victim who is drained of blood becomes a zombie, and only becomes a vampire if they drink some of the vampire's blood.

Ah. That's good to know.

Of course, I don't think that the Japanese have vampire or zombie lore in their culture, so this is just the theory of that one author. I just mentioned it because it's the one concept that links those two bogeymen.

SHOES. MUST HAVE. SHOOOOOOEESSSSS.






*coughs*
Wait, what were you saying? Oh, if vampires bite corpses you get:
a- A disgusted-near-retching Winchester (and an extra, decapitated corpse)
b- A Sparkly magical baby!!!1!eleventy!
c- And anorexic vampire.
d- A Don't do drugs! advertisement campaign targeted for vamps.
e- How dead a corpse are we talking here? Because lore would indicate you'd either get a dead-er/intoxicated vampire, a new vampire out of the corpse, or a pissed off British blonde telling you when he asked for something to spice up his blood he didn't mean grandma's ashes, so...

Wonder how vampires react to, er, less than pristine bloodstreams. There was a Batman Elseworlds in which Dracula went crazy from all the drugs and pollution in the blood of the people he had fed from.

Oh man those shoes are EPIC. I feel as though the jaunty little bow is what MAKES them, blade or no blade.

They are certainly difficult to stop looking at :D.

Ok, now I'm resisting the urge to check CNN, just in case.
And I need to own those shoes, even if just to prove they exist for reals.

Have I mentioned that I love, and am terrified by, your shiny brain.

according to the webcomic http://www.lastblood.net/ zombies are the result of a vampire that goes without feeding for too long. It goes nuts, and eventually it's magical whatever kind of breaks, and rather thereafter when biting, rather than vampirism, creates zombies under it's mental control.
