A bit different, but when I heard the story I immediately thought "Don't do the brown acid!"

I heard somewhere (can't remember the source, I think it was from the radio) that that "bath salts" may be the drug that's involved. And "bath salts" are apparently various "designer drugs" that are around these days.
Quote:
The DEA last fall banned three chemicals commonly used to make bath salts: mephedrone, MDPV, and methylone.

I know nothing about those drugs, though, except that MDPV is a stimulant. Time to hit up Erowid.

Another cannibal story in Md.

Authorities: Md. man admits eating heart of victim

Quote:
BALTIMORE (AP) A 21-year-old college student accused of killing a housemate told police he ate the victim's heart and part of his brain after he died.

I'd believe that or PCP. There's no way LSD or DMT would cause a reaction like that, but I guess anything is possible.

^ Yeah, I would totally go see that movie.

Actually, that's not too far off from "Zombieland," now that I recall.

Isnt "bath salts" a mixture of PCP and a strong stimulant like speed or high doses of adderall?

I have heard of 3 cases this week of canabalism...wtf?? Just when ppl are really begining to talk about ending prohibition on drugs do they have to come out with some drug that turns bible toting people into canabals.

It's a methamphetamine-like designer drug. Everyone that's taking it are basically human guinea pigs.

Drugs have been linked to only one case of cannibalism this week. What are the other two?

well the other two have not been linked to drugs or any other motive yet, but there was one case which surfaced about a man eating his friend's heart and brain, they just found the perp and all the other parts of the victim's body in a church dumpster. Then there was another case this week of cannibalism and again a cop intervened and the perp threw the victim's intestines at the cops.
I am just baffled at all the recent cannibalism...the media is either digging these stories up for some reason or there is more recent cases of cannibalism.

Over fifty years of bad drugs and nothing like this.

There have been other cases, Europe, long ago, several times. It does not seem famine related, there it is the sauage business, but grave robbing and travelers found just eaten. Not like cooked and knives and forks, but like animals.

Some were blamed on dragons, some on wolves, and some more local. Watchmen were hired to watch graves for a month.

The Greeks wrote of Pan eating shepards. Wolves and bears have fangs, this was eaten by something with teeth like a goat.

Hannibal Lector was modeled on a man named Fish, who ate the evidence.

I did read it had been traced to a rapidly spreading Virus, but that was on 4chan.

Most cannibals through time have been responsable, left no evidence, and were considered model citizens, till in the case of Fish the bones of ten children were found buried in his yard, he recycled.

We will have to wait and see the pattern that emerges.

Are you talking about what was supposed to be spreading by kissing bugs?

Zombie Apocalypse: CDC Denies Existence Of Zombies Despite Cannibal Incidents



The horrific face-eating arrest in Miami and several other seemingly subhuman acts has many people wondering what's behind this flesh-munching wave of terror.

A zombie apocalypse, however, is not what we should be worried about, at least according to the federal government.


In Soviet Russia there was a saying: "don't believe something until it is officially denied."

So, it's true. There is actually a zombie apocalypse starting. Soon, we will all be either consumed by the living dead or will be doomed to roam the Earth as them for eternity. Personally, I blame Obama for this.

Quote:
Over the years the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released a couple of tongue-in-cheek "zombie warnings," which really are just disaster-preparedness stunts. But on Thursday, the agency made it official: Zombies don't exist.

"CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombie-like symptoms)," wrote agency spokesman David Daigle in an email to The Huffington Post.

Nevertheless, recent incidents in which humans reportedly ate human flesh have the Internet in a firestorm, with "zombie apocalypse" being Google's third most popular search term by Friday morning.

The zombie craze seemed to start with an attack in Miami on Saturday, when Rudy Eugene, 31, was killed by cops while in the process of eating almost the entirety of a homeless man's face off. The victim, Ronald Poppo, miraculously survived, but doctors are having a hard time figuring out how to put his face back together.

ZOM-BIE: n. also ZOM-BIES pl. 1. An animated corpse that feeds on living human flesh. 2. A voodoo spell that raises the dead. 3. A Voodoo snake god. 4. One who moves or acts in a daze "like a zombie." [a word of West African origin] - Max Brooks, "The Zombie Survival Guide"

Then, on Tuesday, 21-year-old Alexander Kinyua of Maryland allegedly admitted to dismembering his roommate and then eating his heart and brain.

Cops in Canada are also searching for a low-budget porn actor who allegedly killed a young man with an ice pick, dismembered the body and then raped and ate flesh from the corpse. Luka Rocco Magnotta is being hunted after he allegedly mailed some of the body parts to Ottawa. He's also accused of killing cats on video and posting the footage online.

Gawker fingered a "mysterious rash" breakout at a high school in Hollywood and other parts of Florida -- which hazmat and disease control teams still can't explain -- as further proof that zombies are taking over.

Zombie-like characteristics have been confirmed in the animal kingdom, just not in humans. A newfound fungus in a Brazilian rain forest -- called Ophiocordyceps camponoti-balzani -- is known to infect an ant, take over its brain so as to move the body to a good location for growth, and then kill the insect.

Yet Daigle dismissed "fictional viruses" like Ataxic Neurodegenrative Satiety Deficiency Syndrome, noting that other triggers have been alleged to cause zombie-like symptoms.

"Films have included radiation as well as mutations of existing conditions such as prions, mad-cow disease, measles, and rabies," he said.

But recently, some have found truth stranger than fiction.

"Action must be taken now before an outbreak!" an anonymous reader told The Huffington Post. "Zombies may be subdued by destroying the brain or removing the head. It is now your responsibility to prevent the apocalypse."

Correction: An earlier version of this story stated that Gawker pointed out a rash outbreak in the Hollywood district of Los Angeles. It's actually in Hollywood, Florida. We regret the error.

What really annoys me about these Bath Salts is people think they can put a misleading label on the package and suddenly and magically, they are fine. Just put they are for cleaning jewelry and are not to be ingested or that they are a novelty. What bs! Who is going to use them to clean jewelry and how can they be a 'novelty?' People are just going to stare at the package? Are they supposed to just sit there and look pretty? It's just junk that needs to be sent back to wherever it was shipped from.
