Zombie Apocalypse is possible
The Impending Zombie Apocalypse
The danger of a Zombie apocalypse is real. Yesterday, I read a news story in Popular Science on why scientists are obsessed with zombies.
Ok. So the story was really about modeling disease epidemics. Apparently, scientists occasionally model zombie scenarios. They do it as a means of understanding the dynamics of REAL diseases.
“The entire east coast will be zombified within just a few days after the zombie outbreak.”
The take away is simple. Move to Montana.
Yup, it’s true. Those of us who live on the densely populated coasts are toast. When (not if) the zombie pandemic hits, city dwellers will be feasting on each other’s fleshy parts within a week. The entire east coast will be zombified within just a few days after the zombie outbreak.
No need to choose between Atlanta, Boston or San Diego. By the way, San Diego just lost its NFL team to Los Angeles. As if LA was more immune to zombie infestation. Geez. The San Diego Chargers. Misinformed.
Anyway, back to Montana. It seems, according to the CDC, that it will take many weeks for the zombie plague to reach Big Sky Country.
Is moving to Montana a smart Pre-Zombie Apocalypse move?
You have to consider the smarts of moving. Do you want to hang around long enough to see all of your friends, families and neighbors eat each other and be eaten? These sorts of conundrums keep brand strategists up all night.
But back to the REAL issue at hand. Montana tourism and relocation.
If I were Montana, I would consider CVB campaign built around zombie avoidance. Based upon Google searches, the idea of a Zombie Apocalypse is THE NUMBER one search term. Now in full disclosure, I just made that number up. But I will deny doing so when pressed. I want you to be more interested in my intent (heart) and less interested in what I actually say.
However, this change in population size (before they become last to join the walkers) would make them the big kid on the block. At least the big kid in politics.
Montana would quickly take the crown in the Electoral College from California.
Suddenly the Montana primary would become more important than New Hampshire (states that currently share the same population size).
What the Zombie Apocalypse REALLY means?
It means we can all forget Brexit, Russian influence in the US election process, educating the needy and feeding the poor. We can concentrate once again on the important issues of our time. Bad luck. Friday the 13th is bad luck.
