June 15, 2013: Dead In The Head

Move over Bath Salts users, another kind of real world "zombie" has been making the news rounds.

I first heard of the Cotard Delusion in a recent MSN article. Those unfortunate enough to be afflicted by this rare disorder feel a detachment from their bodies, which can sometimes lead them to believe they're dead.

If only someone on the internet could do a little research, and compile a list of . . . oh I don't know . . . let's say, 10 of the most unusual documented cases. Oh wait the guys at Mental Floss already did exactly that. They even came up with a catchier title than mine.
