Since The Walking Dead is on a break, here is some zombie news to tide everyone over for a bit. What's this news I speak of?
Oh, nothing big.
Just a biotech company TRYING TO BRING DEAD PEOPLE BACK TO LIFE.
Okay, so not really dead, but braindead. And they're not exactly being brought back to life, more like back to where their brains are working a little better.
But it's a little too close, isn't it?
According to iflscience — or I Fucking Love Science for those of you who fucking love the word fuck (Negan, I'm lookin' at YOU) — Bioquark is hoping that its ReAnima project will do just that. Without jumpstarting the zombocalypse, of course.
During this project, they will be experimenting on 20 braindead patients with stem cells, injecting the spinal cord with chemicals (good ones, not bad ones), and using nerve stimulation techniques. Despite the highly controversial (and unethical, according to some) method of using stem cells, the Institutional Review Board has given them permission to conduct the experiments in the US and India — the latter being where these trials will take place.
Ira pastor, the CEO of Bioquark had this to say on Twitter on April 20th:
START STOCKING UP ON TOILET PAPER. RIGHT NOW!
