Ok, this is taking the “lawyers are bloodsucking vampires” thing a little too far

once-bitten.jpgJonathon Sharkey has filed a lawsuit on behalf of himself and “The Vampyre Nation” against the United States government, seeking sovereignty for the Vampyre Nation. For those like me who didn’t know any better:

The Vampyre Nation herein known as -VN, which consist of several territories here in America, as well as in other nations in the world (Russia, Romania, Poland, Germany, South America, Australia…). The VN’s primary location is in Tracy City, Tennessee.

About 90 miles south of Tracy City, the ever trustworthy Wikipedia tells us that, as of 2000, Tracy City held 1,679 citizens. According to a website for a vampire role-playing game, the general rule-of-thumb is that “the worldwide ratio of Kindred to kine is 1:100k.” By that rule-of-thumb, Tracy City has 0.017 vampires, which doesn’t exactly seem like a nation to me.

Ah, but reading on, we learn that it’s possible for the ratio to actually drop to 1 in 10,000. Which means Tracy City has 0.17 vampires so, yeah, totally a nation.

Best. Jim Carrey movie. Ever.

Why are vampire fans such losers? You never see Night of the Living Dead fans trying to start a zombie nation or spelling zombie "zombye" to make it sound more mysterious.

As a Polack, I am totally offended.

alex beat me to it!
jim carrey before he became popular, then became an ass, then finally redeemed himself-- plus lauren hutton!

Quebec will take them. Hey-O!

Apparently, there is supposed to be a funny documentary about Sharkey called "Impaled: Painfully Blunt!"

I'm not positive, but I think it leads up to his crazy Vampyre Nation crap.


If it's anything as good as the crap I'm reading in the news, I can't wait for it to come out.

vampire impersonaters -are- retarded, but generalizing some made up statistic to "prove" that there are no vampires in the supposed capital of the vampire nation is at best specious. ever heard of abnormal geographic distributions?
