Lyssa X (noun): Lyssa X (also called "Lyssavirus X" or "Rabies X") refers to a mutation of Rabies with a much shorter incubation period of several days, as opposed to several weeks. Rabies, one of many similar viruses in the Lyssavirus Genus, is characterized by causing those infected to become highly aggressive, irrational, and unresponsive to attempts at communication. Other than its rapid onset, Lyssa X is otherwise identical to Rabies. Rabies is kept from rapidly spreading because it can take anywhere from 3 weeks to 2 years to affect it's host, but Lyssa X has overcome this limitation. The term Lyssa X was originally coined by OZORT, and is considered a fictional virus. It is also considered a zombie virus by zombie survivalist groups, as this mutation could very easily lead to a widespread zombie outbreak.

If Rabies ever mutates into Lyssa X, we're all fucked.

A group of survivalists who plan for ANY national crisis, using as a worst case scenario the theoretical idea of a zombie outbreak as a benchmark to ensure preparedness for any situation whereby government or society collapses. They are a large organisation and can easily be found on google or any other major search engine.
People often mistakenly think that OZORT is about killing zombies because they use a zombie as their mascot.

A virus that does not actually exist, but is a possible mutation of an existing virus, or an entirely made up virus that can possibly exist without defying medical knowledge. Examples of fictional virus include Lyssavirus X and Filonecrosis. The movie entitled "Outbreak" was a good example of a fictional virus.
Despite the fact that they don't exist, it's important to be prepared for fictional viruses, since viruses are known to mutate to more potent forms all the time.

A Theoretical Virus is a fictional virus that is based on a real virus, but does not actually exist. They are used as a benchmark for viral preparedness. A good example of a theoretical virus is lyssa x, which is a relative of rabies. Web groups such as OZORT are geared toward preparing for worst case scenario viruses like these.
A Theoretical Virus can be just as dangerous as a real virus if you aren't prepared for it.

Noun (zee day): A term probably coined by Max Brooks which refers to the war between zombies and mankind. Derived from the word D-Day, which is a British term used to refer to a variable day on which a combat attack or operation is initiated. Z-Day is marked by a sudden attack on mankind by zombies, which will lead to a widespread zombie outbreak. There are a number of zombie survivalist groups worldwide (largely in the US, UK, and Canada), that are already planning what to do when this day comes.
Z-Day will catch mankind completely off guard, and the lack of preparation will lead to countless casualties.
