RexTalionis: Fun fact - the whole point of the stake/rod through the chest isn't to kill the vampire. It's meant to nail the vampire into the ground so it can't get up.

Slaves2Darkness: Meh ... in some of the original vampire folk lore a vampire only lived for about 40 days. You know what else only lives for about 40 days? Somebody infected with rabies.That is right a vampire is just some asshole with rabies and delusions of grandeur.

Alpha Sierra Foxtrot: Does anyone really believe that the whole vampire thing started with Bram Stoker?PSA for those of you considering reading Dracula the Un-Dead by Dacre Stoker: Don't. Just go read the original again. You'll feel more accomplished.

verbaltoxin: The only way I'd write something about vampires is if I used some of the old, weird Slavic folktales; such as ... emptying a bag of coins on the ground will stop the vampire, because it will obsessively count each one while you get away.

Tsar_Bomba1: I was reading a criminal profiler's book and he suggested that the legends of vampires and werewolves could possibly come from serial killers way back then. People finding bodies that were slaughtered in some horrific manner - that may have been the way the populace dealt with crimes like that. So far removed from out of the ordinary...
