I understand that a wooden stake to the heart is the only way to kill vampires (in most forms of media at least).... but like, c'mon, who WOULDN'T that kill???
Besides Amber Heard. You can't stab a heart that's not there.
@sir killjoy, i think part of the reason is the origin of “vampires” was a dude who cut the heart out of his daughters corpse and burned it, because he thought her body was housing a demon that was killing the rest of his family (turns out that demon? tuberculosis).
not sure why a wooden stake specifically, but the whole destroying the heart thing probably comes from that
and i think to kill amber heard youd have to cut her head off like a zombie
@liviwintergirl, the wooden stake thing comes from Dracula specifically. Dracula was based off of "Vlad the Implaler" (aka Vlad III, Vlad Dracula, Vlad Dracul III) who would mount the bodies of enemies on large wooden stakes as a warning to others.
@liviwintergirl, in old times they drove the stake through the coffin at the heart to pin the body down. Hope was it wouldn't be able to get loose again.
Huh, this pencil sharpener came in my loot crate.
I want one
But with zombies you have to destroy the brain and with her that doesn't exist.
