Zombie attack in small-town NH. As I live nearby, I have begun the laborious task of barricading the doors and nailing boards across every window. My cats are furious with me. Oh, and this comment from my friend, who once had the accused zombie as a student: "Travis Saulnier was a student here. At the time of 6th grade, he was already over 6ft and looked well on his way to being the next Leatherface. Not surprised."

See, I knew there was something unnatural about Keene, NH. Gad I moved!

Any follow-up news on why the guy was making those noises? Stoned? Seizures? Insane? Actually a zombie?

I forsee a series of anti-PCP ads directed by Sam Raimi.

He could probably smell the delicious hufu they were cooking inside the house.

Charges against Saulnier include: attempt to commit burglary, trespassing, possession of burglary tools, possession of marijuana, resisting arrest, loitering and criminal mischief.

Well, I suppose they had to charge him with possession, but this doesn't seem like pot-head behavior. This seems more like PCP induced zombification.

Ahh, PCP induced zombification - those wonderful college days.

Zombification, you say?

Hold on; I though tetrodotoxin was the zombie drug.

mmahaffie : Any follow-up news on why the guy was making those noises?

Sorry, no info yet. The speculation thus far in town is that he was mixing alcohol with some other substance(s).

Just go down to Lindy's and get a bite to eat and let it all blow over.

Is it just me, or did the opening line of the article make it seem as if the guy kept trying to force his way into the house after having been shot?

They should have shot him without hesitation! Don't they realize:

Every dead body that is not exterminated becomes one of them. It gets up and kills. The people it kills get up and kill!

well, if you douse pot with ammonia (carefully) the result is essentially the same as PCP laced pot.

semi-off topic: Last week at E3 at some zombie game developer's booth they had a couple of professional makeup artists that were turning anyone who wanted into a zombie. Sores, grey skin, bruises, the whole lot. By the end of the show, there were more than a couple shuffling around.

I am consistently amazed and disturbed to discover just how many people have visited or lived in this shithole.

They called them "burglarious tools" when I was arrested.

Add me to the list of people who have spent time in Keene.

And as a Vermonter, well... I have to say... (insert tasteless and probably unfunny joke about New Hampshire being solely populated by zombies here.)

I'm guessing it didn't involve zombies, but don't stop there, Mulp. Lay the rest of the story on us.

I had a run-in with a zombie once in Northern Arizona. I made short of work of him without even calling the police. The key is to realize they're not human and you must take any and all actions to stop them. Also, cutting up the body into 13 pieces in burying them randomly along the interstate helps.

Apparently the Keene Sentinel also has a zombie on staff in the copyediting department, or else there's some local custom called a "door jam" that I never heard of.

/strikes off on own tangent

Wait one second there Shmegegge, one can douse pot with ammonia?!?!? Huh? It can't possibly be worth the risk.

I so freaking wish I knew how to get my stupid keyboard to display an interrobang. Anyone?

oddman, not following. is there something about ammonia I don't know? (highly likely) it's not something I've ever tried, just something you read in various "counter-culture" pieces of "literature."

I hear it works on banana peel scrapings, as well.

Also if you take an aspirin while you drink Coke your stomach will explode. Or is it pop rocks, I can't remember.

Nixerman, and by "zombie" you really mean "hitchhiker" right? I make that mistake all the time too.

Well, I'm sure glad I have one of these!
