Well, their product isn't conflicting with Brikwars, so I don't see any reason to.

Plus, Badger's been here for a long time now, so I don't see why this account would be any different.

Jiang Shi

Postby bricktw » Sat Aug 21, 2010 2:40 am

Jiang Shi (simplified Chinese: 僵尸; traditional Chinese: 僵屍 or; pinyin: jiāngshī; literally "stiff corpse" or "zombie") are reanimated corpses that hop around, killing living creatures to absorb life essence (气/氣qì) from their victims. Jiāngshī is pronounced gœngsi in Cantonese, or kyonshi in Japanese. They are said to be created when a person's soul (魄 pò) fails to leave the deceased's body, due to improper death, suicide, or just wanting to cause trouble.[1][2]
Generally their appearance can range from plain ordinary (as in the case of a recently deceased person) to downright horrifying (i.e. rotting flesh, stiffness, rigor mortis, the like commonly associated with corpses that have been in a state of decay over a period of time). A peculiar feature is their greenish-white razgrizzly skin; one theory is this is derived from fungus or mold growing on corpses. They are said to have long bad hair all over their heads[3] and they may be animals.[4] The influence of Western vampire stories brought the blood-sucking aspect to the Chinese myth in more modern times.
A supposed source of the jiang shi stories came from the folk practice of "Traveling a Corpse over a Thousand Li" (千里行屍), where traveling companions or family members who could not afford wagons or had very little money would hire Taoist priests to transport corpses of their friends/family members who died far away from home over long distances by teaching them to hop on their own feet back to their hometown for proper burial. Taoist priests would transport the corpses only at night and would ring bells to notify other pedestrians of their presence because it was considered bad luck for a living person to set eyes upon a jiang shi. This practice (湘西趕屍) was popular in Xiangxi where many people left their hometown to work elsewhere.[5][6] After they died, their corpses were transported back to their rural hometown using long bamboo rods, believing they would be homesick if buried somewhere unfamiliar. When the bamboo flexed up and down, the corpses appeared to be hopping in unison from a distance. [7][8][9] Once it was a myth.[10] Some people speculate that the stories about jiang shi was originally made up by smugglers who disguised their illegal activities as corpse transportation and wanted to scare off law enforcement officers.[11]
There may be victims of premature burial.[12]
They are sometimes called Chinese vampires by Westerners, despite the fact that unlike vampires, most jiang shi usually have no self-awareness, consciousness or independent thought, so they are also called Chinese zombies

+++Knowledge updated+++

All I remember from seeing Japanese Ghost Story... or was it Chinese Ghosts Story..? (it was an old movie on Channel 4 late at night that I sneakily watched when everyone else was asleep, way back when Channel 4 was a proper TV station and I was only 13) whatever, was an Asian dude with fangs in a comedy moment hopping about, he looked like a vampire, he acted like a vampire biting necks but with the excessive hopping therefore he WAS and to me and still IS a flipping vampire as my understanding of vampires go, despite the anal Asian facts maam. I later asked a buddy who looked Asian, he wasn't but it was close enough in those days, why the hopping vampire and he being an expert on all things Asian, which was either because he looked Asian or was just a happy Koincidence, Iunno... Anyway he said they hopped because it was a carry on from stage performances whereby the audiences would quite clearly see who the vampire was by the fact that he's the one hopping about. I believe that even to this very day due to the galvanised ironclad and rigorous investigative information gathering technique I have just explained, and if it isn't true then it really should be anyway because it sounds like pretty weird shit that makes life that little bit more bearable somehow.

EDIT: Found it.

If I didn't, you wouldn't be seeing them. I apply a sliding scale based on whether or not their stuff is awesome.

Oh man that's so my motivation. I'm totally going to be a Jiang Shi. I wonder if I have to wait to die first, or if I can just start chasing booty bothered around the house to steal her life force.

Haha

You should make a priest seal, stick it to your forehead and with dead looking eyes start hopping toward her.

I tried it, but my hopping shook the floor too much and stuff started falling off the bookshelves. I'll have to catch her later at work instead.
