    Contained???

    "Cambodian officials say that the desease has been contained and that there is no need to worry."

    Return of the Living Dead. :evil:

    If true, there is PLENTY of need to worry. Mosquitos (and viruses) TRAVEL!! :evil:

    NO WAY! This has to be wrong. This is way too much like a zombie movie.

    Time to stock up on OFF and ammo.

    That is a beautifully made fake!

    Heh. I've seen a similar thing for CNN where you could input your own text and upload a picture. It looked exactly like CNN's site. The tip off is the url in the address bar.

    :)

    :confused: Other than the absurdity of the article, what gives this up as a fake?

    This hoax is obviously a ploy by the intelligent zombies to make us believe they don't exist. So they can catch us unawares and eat our brains.

    I'm betting that there are people here who are disappointed that the story is a fake. :D

    Shoot. I started getting my Zombie Cache open and degreased when I looked at the HTML. Oh well. :(

    Some day, my zombies will come, some day, my time will come
    And how thrilling that moment will be
    He'll whisper "brains" and steal a bite or two.

    The format of the URL (address).
    The link to the fake article - http://65.127.124.62/south_asia/4483241.stm.htm
    shows a different format from a legitimate article on the BBC website - http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/4489411.stm

    Since the fake showed a different format, I decided to look up the IP specified. 65.127.124.62 shows in ARIN (American Registry for Internet Numbers) as one of Qwest’s IP addresses. They are a US based company and it would be unlikely that the BBC would be hosting with a company that would use a Qwest IP.

    Looking in the RIPE (Réseaux IP Européens) database, the European organization that records assigned internet addresses IPs, shows that the BBC is assigned the range 212.58.240.0 - 212.58.240.255.

    Great spoof! I especially loved all the valid links.

    Thanks for the explanation
    I wondered at the lack of BBC in the URL but I'm not real internet savvy

    Apparently I'm one of the people Cracked Butt was betting on... My new scope (wooo, illuminated reticle!) for my PSL showed up today in the mail at the same time as my zombie graphic novels from Amazon. My wife demanded a peek through it, then declared that if I hadn't ordered it, she would have bought one for herself. Then she admitted she was lying through her teeth, but still, it was pretty cute.
    Seriously though, I have to ask myself, what is it about my job that makes zombie apocalypse seem like a beautiful dream in comparison?

    Exactly!
    I don't want to see something as horrible as zombies, I want to see rampaging hordes of evil monkeys. They actually have problems with rampaging hordes of evil monkeys in some parts of the world. :evil:

    Maddock gave you the evidence that it is a fake. A good and quick rule of thumb is to ALWAYS try to find the article from the other end as well. Whenever i see a linked article that seems odd to me, i go to the front page of the source and try to find that same article from there.
