How To Survive A Zombie Apocalypse
By Heidi Wallis. In the first throes of a zombie apocalypse, you find a safe place to hole up — an abandoned farmhouse or your local pub — and wait it out as long as you can. In Hollywood, no one ever seems to be prepared for this inevitable trek, but with a little advance planning … you can be. To help you prepare for a zombie apocalypse, we did a little digging and put together the following list of survival essentials. Not surprisingly, most everything on our list would also be helpful to have in case of any major emergency.
There are all kinds of emergencies out there that we can prepare for. Take a zombie apocalypse for example. The word zombie comes from Haitian and New Orleans voodoo origins. Although its meaning has changed slightly over the years, it refers to a human corpse mysteriously reanimated to serve the undead. Through ancient voodoo and folk-lore traditions, shows like the Walking Dead were born. In movies, shows, and literature, zombies are often depicted as being created by an infectious virus, which is passed on via bites and contact with bodily fluids. Harvard psychiatrist Steven Schlozman wrote a fictional medical paper on the zombies presented in Night of the Living Dead and refers to the condition as Ataxic Neurodegenerative Satiety Deficiency Syndrome caused by an infectious agent.

By Libby Plummer For Mailonline. More than a third of the UK population 36 per cent keeps a few essentials — or a 'grab bag' — ready in case disaster strikes, according to new research. But most of these grab bags wouldn't keep people alive in situations such as a zombie apocalypse says one expert. While food, medical supplies and mobiles phones were top of the list for a survival pack, not many people listed matches or a simple bottle among their essentials, according to the research.

If — or when — the zombie apocalypse comes, those of us in big cities are in trouble, according to research presented at the American Physical Society March meeting on March 5, Starting in a big city like New York or Atlanta means you are basically screwed from the start in the event of a zombie epidemic there, according to Alex Alemi, a graduate student at Cornell University who was part of the research team. You are much better off starting farther away from people, they say, which gives you a better chance of avoiding infection. Ideally, you'd escape to an almost empty region like the Rocky Mountains. Alemi and colleagues used standard disease models to estimate the zombie infection rate around the US, assuming humans would need to be infected by a zombie bite of course. Also following standard protocol, zombies travel only by walking and wouldn't die naturally but would need to be "killed," presumably with a well-placed blow to the head.
