Raising the dead for profit

Posted May 6, 2016 into Science and Tech by John Birmingham

Philadelphia-based biotech company Bioquark, Inc. has been granted approval from an Institutional Review Board at the National Institutes of Health to complete a clinical trial of a drug to wake the dead.

Seems legit. Can't imagine a downside to messing with powers beyond our control.

The good news is that, if I've learnt anything from the zombie genre, there will be one scientist who worked on this but transferred over to Honolulu six months before the outbreak and because of her work with Bioquark we won't know whether she's a goodie or a baddie, but we suspect that she has developed a vaccine for the survivors.

Oh, and those survivors will have interminable journey from the region of the initial outbreak to Honolulu.

But at least in real life we'll know that it was those crazy people at Bioquark who started the whole mess.

Bioquark isn't a subsidiary of Cyberdyne Systems by any chance?

Totally OT, but if you haven't read this investigative journalist piece on the man who wrote trucrypt... It really is amazing stuff. Truly breath-taking.

OK, I'll go for the obvious: Hmmmm, I wonder if this would work on (insert name of living politician, living boring person, etc., here).

I was going to say something about Havok ... but then realized that they are probably using a serum derived from his adrenal gland for this stuff.
