According to a couple of Canadian researchers, the human race could never weather a zombie uprising. Pfft, speak for yourselves, Canucks -- I'M A SURVIVOR!
Based on models of rampant infectious diseases, say researchers, civilization would be doomed if we were ever attacked by zombies.
If society were ever attacked by zombies, we would probably be doomed, and quickly. That was the conclusion of two university researchers in Ottawa, Ontario, who set up mathematical models hypothesizing zombie attacks as infectious diseases with the well-known characteristics of zombie biology from popular fiction. In fact, according to a July BBC News report, zombies are more threatening than virulent diseases because they can regenerate (unless decapitated or incinerated, of course). More troubling was the researchers' presumption that zombies move slowly, as in older movies, but in recent fiction, they're super-quick, making them nearly invincible.
Oh man, as much as I do respect a couple of Canadians with calculators plugging away at a mathematical model they created using the info they gathered from Shawn of the Dead and Zombieland, this is one blogger who isn't succumbing to the zombie apocalypse. Robot, sure, but not zombies.

Thanks to Gideon, who isn't going out in any sort of apocalypse. Except perhaps a sexpocalypse. Just kidding!
This rescue robot, the red-headed stepsister of this beast, was designed to rescue humans from areas firemen can't easily access.
Apparently, the seemingly unnamed robot can not only carry a 110 kilogram person over difficult terrain with ease, but monitor the occupant's vit... / Continue →
Hyundai teamed up with The Walking Dead comic creator Robert Kirkman to create a "Zombie Survival Machine" version of their Elantra Coupe, which will be unveiled at next month's San Diego Comic Con but not available for retail purchase. *eying picture* WELL DARN.

Note: Slightly larger version HERE for those of you with eyes in the back of your head that have to use a mirror to see the monitor.
Will you survive the zombie apocalypse? I dunno, I guess it depends on what kind of zombies you're dealing with. Because I'm gonna be honest... / Continue →
