      the guy got one thing wrong. nowadays there defintely are on site test to determine whether or not the individual is infected. these methods are commonly lab on a chip systems. ive worked with a couple of professors on those. goal was to improve the speed of mrsa diagnosis i.e. for hospitals.
      but somethig everybody knows is an almost instant "contamination" test if you will. A natural flow test we can buy: a pregnancy test

    i want Brian to do a break down on Dead Island. that game is by far the most real thing that gets close to real zombies and the way the viruses spread

    Brilliant insight calmly delivered. And to think this guy would love to be involved if alien life forms were detected just to see what kind of pathogens and viruses they might bring with them. These people are amazing - rushing in to fight against contagious diseases when - to be honest - most of us would run in the opposite direction. Heroes.

    "Contagion" is the best and the only one truly accurate movie about viruses.

    I'm sure it's already been said but about the ET thing. I was thinking where he mentioned they wouldn't really need to decontaminate before going in but rather going out. What if the point was so no human pathogens would be brought in rather than just alien pathogens getting out?

    10:50 'The part were they decontaminate before going in doesn't make a tremendous amount of sense' - That's how you wipe out poor ET's species with some common human cold virus!

    I've seen some videos of psychologists/therapists analyzing psychoses in patients/clients- but what I really want to see are therapists/psychologists analyzing the THERAPISTS in the movies. As a trained therapist, I have seen many in movies and TV that are terrible. A few were pretty good. But mostly what TV therapists do are completely inaccurate to what real therapists do.

    I am in makeup school and in my film and television class we are not just learning about makeup on a set but every department that we as to make artists will have to come in contact with. And the scene with nurses one wearing an eye mask and the other isn't. That's continuity in the wardrobe department.

    I guess when it comes to E.T, you would want to decontaminate before aswell. Our germs would be dangerous for the alien aswell, so limiting that risk would probably be a priority.

    I would think scientifically speaking in the ET reference, a pre-entry decontamination would take place to protect the alien's health ... not just our after contact.

  • FoempThe

    On "World War Z": yes, the virus doesn't choose. But I heard about someting infectious in mice which makes them overly brave, which leads them being eaten by cats, further spreading the virus. So it's not that the virus is choosing to make the mice overly brave, it's that natural selection selected that brave-making virus over another. Could that still not be a valid explanation for these zombies only infecting healthy hosts? Even if in the current form of the virus it doesn't really matter (they are really fast etc), it could be a vestigial evolutionary remnant.

    It's been about 40 years since I saw ET, but I thought the decontamination on the way in was to protect ET, not the other way around.

    You would want to decontaminate yourself before entering to avoid spreading disease to the alien and kill it.

    I am actually terrified of zombie/infection pandemic movies because of this right here. Not the infected themselves or becoming a zombie but the insanity it would cause and its much harder to escape a virus than an actual zombie. Watching this was nightmare inducing, great video!

    Can you do political scenes, high level interviews like how the investigators and all behave while interviewing powerful people or officials and how accurate the procedures are like in House of cards and other political shows and movies.

    Should have asked if cutting of a infected part or area will severe the bond between the virus/disease and the human host. most likely answer is no but would be cool to see him explain the world war z scene when the girl loses her arm

    Zombie movies are fictional but I virus most likely could infect and active it’s effect very quickly once inside your blood stream. Their are real plants, insects, animals, and viruses out they are now in real world I can kill you in less than a minute or even seconds.

    That was fun! Mainly because I didn't know some of these things. As well as I bet people believe what they see and hear in these movies and shows because the presentation is done in such a convincing way. And, most of us aren't experts or even novices when it comes to knowing about diseases, viruses and the tech used to identify them.

    He keeps saying how they would never lock people up against their will which is true now but in these crisis situations where humanity might be at risk I wouldn’t be so quick to laugh it off.
