You finally reach a point in life where science fiction suddenly becomes reality!
I guess this really can't be classified as science fiction, but no matter what you call it...it is truly something out of the ordinary!
I'll withhold my judgement until I see what's on this woman's menu, ya know? After all, we all know the diet makes a true zombie, right?
You have to admit, this is one bizarre story! Made even more so by the fact that it's real!
Woman thought dead was not

A Severna Park woman police reported dead after finding her blue and not breathing in her home was actually alive.
Police were called to check on 89-year-old Ruth Shillinglaw Johnson on Oct. 1. According to a report, officers found her motionless on her bathroom floor, and one officer noted an odor "similar to a decomposition smell."
But officers did not check for a pulse. Instead, they called Johnson's adult son and told him his mother was dead, according to an account first appearing in The Capital newspaper of Annapolis. The man said Johnson planned to donate her body to science. A State Anatomy Board employee arriving to take the body three hours later heard Johnson take a deep breath and saw her move her arm.
Johnson was rushed to a hospital. She was discharged Wednesday. Neighbors said she has been moved to a hospice.
Now, I don't know about you...but if anyone ever finds me like this, I don't care what color I've turned I want them to check for a pulse! Seems to me that ought to be standard procedure! But what do I know? I'm no medic!
Let's get some fresh coffee, my friends, and sit outside on the patio. We can discuss how to avoid any future "zombies" caused by stupidity!
