So, scientists have proven vampires don’t exist.
Basically, their argument is that if vampires had “started” on January 1, 1600, there would be no humans left by June 1602.
This article on io9 discusses the issue:
I haven’t read the scholarly paper, but it’s based on the philosophy that when a vampire bites a human, that human becomes a vampire. By that process, the scientists say, “Apparently, whomever devised the vampire legend had failed his college algebra and philosophy courses.”
Clearly the authors of the paper failed their high school English courses–Dracula clearly states that it takes three bites for a human to become a vampire.
Other interesting ways to become a vampire include:
- Die without apologizing to Mom and Dad for not cleaning up your room (or die single)
- Be born still in the amniotic sac
- Don’t have a proper funeral after you die in India or Greece
- Be made out of poo
- Be born on Dec 25 in Greece (the bonus fact)
