Interview with the vampire

Pravda has published a interview with a real-life vampire, assuring us that Vampirism is not merely an overused banality from horror movies, but a real disease. Usually genetically inherited, it can develop because of alcohol abuse. 53-year-old Vasily Gembitskiy turned to alcohol, and then blood, when his wife died:

I loved loneliness and the night sky from my childhood, and when the wife died a strong reason for that appeared. The soul's tortures were soothed by vodka first. Then a brake came: the spirits hurt my stomach, sometimes I lost consciousness, and then my eyes and all the skin felt like burning for a few days. I jumped to bed and spent 2-3 days not going out of home. Only hunger could make me think again. On one of such days, the neighbor asked me to help with a pig. When I saw warm blood, an idea came: "Why not try this? Maybe it'll give some strength?", and I swallowed some. It tasted like good wine. I became attracted, recalls Vasily.

And if you are worried that you might be a vampire yourself, there is a simple test provided by the Vampire Research Center:

Are you skinny?
Is your face pale?
You often wear sunglasses and use sunburn protection cream?
You prefer candles to electric light?
Are you tolerant to temperature changes?
You look much younger than your age?
You have a deep, magnetizing look?
You are rarely ill, avoid medicines?
Do you judge smokers and drug users?
Do you like night-time loneliness?
Do you like raw meat?
You are not interested in sex much?
You like occult sciences?
You like dressing in black?

The more positive answers you give, the more likely it is you are a bloodsucker. From the life of provincial vampires - Pravda, 24th November 2003.

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
