A Scientific Model Of What A Zombie Apocalypse Would Look Like (And Where Not To Hide) The best spots for riding out a zombie apocalypse are sparsely populated areas of Montana and Nevada, which remain untouched even four months, according to a new study by researchers at Cornell University who have developed a statistical model for simulating the spread of a fictional zombie epidemic.

A Scientific Model Of What A Zombie Apocalypse Would Look Like (And Where Not To Hide)

As The WSJ reports, with real-life applications to modeling viral outbreaks, Cornell offer dire warnings for those who live in Scranton, PA - with northeastern Pennsylvania as the U.S. location most at risk of being overrun by the undead. Highly populated areas are a bad bet in general, of course. But Alexander Alemi, a graduate student and one of the authors of the paper, notes that the most susceptible spots change over time.

Seven days after the initial outbreak, lower Manhattan, with the map’s highest population density at 299,616 people, has the highest zombie susceptibility.

Have a ratio of about 1 zombie to three or four runners initially––this will increase as runners are tagged and turn zombie too. <img alt="Image titled Play Zombie Tag Step 14" src=" width="728" height="455" class="whcdn">2Choose the runners. Have as many as you have space for, or you can do the game in rounds to give more people a chance if it's too crowded otherwise. My Dead Bunny.

Our Favorite Zombie-Themed Halloween Lesson Plans

Halloween is only a couple days away and we couldn’t think of a more appropriate time to gather our goods and share them with you! 4 Zombie-Themed Lessons from PBS These lessons, which you’ll find on the PBS website, ask students to compare the “normal” brain to a “zombie” brain. While you could use these lessons as “stand-alones,” each one follows an accompanying plot line where the world is fighting a zombie apocalypse and the best and the brightest young people are being trained as neuroscientists. The hope is that, with the proper training, students will be able to cure the zombie epidemic and save the world. To browse these four lesson plans, click here. 56B2. Ice Cream!
