Dude this was so cool! In fact I have been coming up with a book idea and didn’t know what this type of stuff was called… or if it was real. Now I know and knowing is… kind of usless in battle if you get shot, but is very useful for gaining a better understanding of things like zombies!

Thanks Undead! Did you search “viral vectors”? Not sure where you were going with your book idea but it might help.

I think your stuff is awesome. I’m a undergrad student in Canada (studying immunology, virology and molecular biology). I found your information incredibly informative and super imaginative.

It made it even more interesting to learn about this stuff in such a different application. Thank YOU!

keep up what you are doing, because it is unreal!

Will there be more PotLD in the future?

Yes there will! I admit I am a slacker, but after the holidays I’ll cover prions, then sepsis, then peri and postmortem changes.
