Ok…for anyone that knows me, and being a native Pittsburgher and film lover, you know I love zombies like 15 year old boys love Pam Anderson. But a report I just read from the BBC (via Treehugger) scares me….in a “sci-fi most likely will never happen anyway” kind of way. But…you never know
According to a new BBC study, scientists and mathematicians determined that an attack from the rising undead, AKA zombies, would “lead to the collapse of civilization unless dealt with quickly and aggressively.” I think Obama needs to appoint a Zombie Czar to deal with the possibility of the rising of the dead. I think finding a way to stop the undead masses hungry for brains is more important than the Cash for Clunkers program to be honest. Alright, I may be jumping the gun a bit, but have you seen how fast those zombies are in 28 days later? Scary fast.
Fortunately, well, maybe even scarier actually, is the fact that the study wasn’t to deal with actual zombies, but a scenario to model an epidemic plague that would be caused by a rapidly spreading infectious disease. The kind forseen with rising temperatures due to global warming. That’s right. Keep using those Styrofoam cups and you’re going to be partly responsible for the zombie plague. Well, maybe not. But it’s an interesting read nonetheless.
