Physicists prove vampires don’t exist (I’m still carrying my garlic)

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.

So there.

Other interesting ways to become a vampire include:

    Just thought I’d pop in. I like it! Back to my book now, I promise.

  2. “…it takes three bites for a human to become a vampire.”
    AND then the human has to drink some of the vampire’s blood.

  3. I agree, the scientists haven’t studied the legend. I haven’t really read any book with the philosophy of a vampire changing a human with one bite. Pfft! =)

    These physicists are a tad outside their area of expertise, no? Seems to me that they’ve done math, but not physics. 😉
