Illinois #2 Ironman.

How many work those kinks out at the Manhole or Steamworks in boystown afterhours.

In zombie movies the gay guy always gets it first.

Colorado is 3rd? They are already zombies.

They've got TX as 26th? They got more fire power than brains! Plus, they are spread out. I'm not sure how far a zombie can walk without eating brains.

And TN is 44th? That don't seem right.

I suspect a zombie threw this together.

DC is 51st in gun ownership?????? I don’t think so. Maybe REGISTERED gun ownership.

Clothes and body parts would soon clog a corn picker up stopping the head from working.

There are much better implements to use.

The military personnel/veterans numbers make NO sense, nor the gun owners for that matter. I’d like to see sources.

When they are “very” zombies,

they are “MUY” zombies.

And that’s what we’re really talking about.

Worth some consideration.

The Texas thing is questionable, but the Redoubt states rank well.

“Oh sure, faggots in Massachusetts surviving better than we Alabama rednecks. I don’t think so.”

I completely agree with you. This list is garbage based on Mass. being ahead of Alabama. Anyone with common sense would choose Alabama instead of Mass.

Alaska would be first due to their location but I wouldn't want to live there. I'm in Texas but I see no reason to argue about where we are on the list since Mass. being ahead of Alabama, trashes this list for accuracy/common sense.

Exactly. 5 miles is good but 10 miles is 4 times better.

It is known that people will not walk 5 miles to much of anything. Most not even 1 mile. 10 or 30 or 100 miles, forget it.

That’s not reflected in the diagram.
The “zombie” vectors we’re talking about have a limited length.

Dying form a zombie attack is most likely directly related the proximity to zombies. Zombies are concentrated in large urban areas, so it follows that survival will be greatest for those most distant from the threat.
Most survival experts consider the highly urbanized areas as most likely to be unsafe after a collapse.

Once you get past Alaska the ranking on this list is a joke.

North Tulsa, Oklahoma City will be Zombiefied. The rest of the state can handle the situation well.

Great quote easily applied to the Zombie factor.

No doubt.

Cept where my Mom lives, in the middle nowhere, on the border of Sperry.

Pretty much think Zombies will run out of energy before they ever reach her place and the ones that make it will get mowed down with .270 and .357.

My Mom loves parades and her property is on a hill. She can watch the whole thing from any vantage point and pick em off at will...until she runs out of ammo, which won’t be til the twelfth of never...

I dunno. Staggering, groaning, half-clad people with blood all over looking to devour everything in their path - in Idaho that isn’t known as a zombie infestation, it’s known as “Saturday night”.

I went to horseshoeing school at Sperry. Must pass though North Tulsa to get there. Does it still flood when someone spits in the creek?

“Whart the hell is a zombie apocalypse?”

Really? Oh well, it was bound to happen....

You see, Zombies are the “Walking Dead”. Infected by a virus of some kind, when they die they come back as flesh eating creatures with a special taste for brains. Only way you can send them to Zombie Hell is by destroying their brain. Specially the Cerebral Cortex.

The Apocalypse comes when the Zombies become a significant part of the population and the humans become the hunted. Civilization collapses. Hence “Apocalypse”

You’re welcome.

Because the list was predicated on metrics decided upon by Video Generation idiots who don't understand skill at "Shaun White Snowboarding" confers absolutely zero skill on a mountainside.

Don't take it too seriously. It has become a popular euphemism for a societal breakdown caused by mindless, soul-less, pitiless, agents driven only by the desire to consume those who are not one of them.

Get it?

So how would you create organizations and strategies without running afoul of those you’re creating them to defend against, Mr. Reality?

Don’t assume something is stupid just because you’re not familiar with it.

“Take your organizations and shove them up your backside!”

O.K. Calm Down!!!

I'll let you in on a little inside joke.

Every time, on every Forum I've ever been on, someone will start a Zombie Apocalypse thread. And every time, and I mean every time, someone will not know what the Zombie Apocalypse represents and they will have to ask. Then when they are told they'll come back with “ya’ll are a bunch of crazies” or “WTF is wrong with you? How can you believe this shit?”

This time, you're it.

Zombie Apocalypse is merely a euphemism for the collapse of civilization from whatever means. Nobody, at least most, actually believe in Zombies.

Get it?
