Throughout history, blood has always been known to be precious. It has been integral in rituals of all kinds. In Judaism and Christianity, the ingestion of any type of blood is prohibited because the blood is said to contain the life.
At this point, that statement has proven to be true.
There have always been stories of people that did drink blood, no matter their religious persuasion. Some might have done it in ritual for whatever purpose. Others did it in celebration of victory. More recently, people have done it for health effects.
Peter Thiel is apparently really into a technological form of vampirism. Thiel mainlines it. It’s a no muss no fuss way to pay for someone’s vitality and not kill them or cause a panic within the general community.
For a Gay, Thiel comes off as a pretty well-adjusted guy. Before Gawker outed him, he didn’t even want people to know he was gay… he was one of those. After that fact came out though, he also let it slip that he’s a Vampire in 2016.

What other blood-sucking-creatures are out there?
1 Early Western Blood Suckers, The Jewish Ritual Murder - 'Blood Libel'
Stories about the Juden go back to the time of the Greeks. It is still going on today. We published a story early on Friday about a Russian Investigation into the Suspected Jewish Ritualistic Nature of the murder of the Russian Romanovs.
The typical Jewish Ritual Murder plot involves ideally a young Christian boy being kidnapped before Passover. The Jews then poke holes in the child according to 'Holy Jewish Diagrams' etc.
The Jews will freak the fuck out if you accuse them of it. Only certain Jews seem to indulge in the practice. It seems they do it for favor but that favor comes somehow by eating unleavened bread with blood kneaded into it.
Even if they're in hysterics about how it's not Kosher, I wouldn't buy it.
2 Famous Medievil Seekers
Vlad the Impaler is the most famous. They said he had a pretty good time torturing his enemies and would enjoy a nice goblet of their blood to relax between scheduled torturings.
The Blood Countess is said on Wikipedia to have tortured and killed over 650 young girls so she could bathe in their blood. That was a Bathory from Hungary.
3 Famous Modern Bloodsuckers
In modern times, the blood eaters have become almost official lore.
Sometimes people claim their cattle have been totally drained of blood by flying saucers.
Before the flying saucer cattle mutilations, there was the fiction written of Count Dracula. Now there have been 1000 variants of that Classic Vampire.
4 Which brings us to Thiel and the like in our Post-Modern Era
Rich, famous, and fabulous, Peter Thiel really had to be some type of weirdo. That's the way the world works.
In 2017, he told Inc:
“I’m looking into parabiosis stuff, which I think is really interesting. This is where they did the young blood into older mice and they found that had a massive rejuvenating effect,” the tech billionaire and Trump adviser told Inc."
Vanity Fair used that quote too. They did a piece that featured a clinic that was charging $8k for a transfusion from a teenager.
Let's hope there were never any Kevin Spacey incidents in the place.
What is the future of Vampirism, tho?
