Zombie Apocalypse Simulator Proves That You Should Leave The City When The Dead Walk

Thanks to Cornell University researchers, we can now simulate the spread of a zombie disease outbreak.

And thanks to their new zombie apocalypse simulator, we can confirm what we already knew: Stay out of cities if you don’t want to get infected.

The researchers will present their study, “The Statistical Mechanics of Zombies,” later this week, and reportedly prove that the best place to escape should zombies take over is the northern Rockies.

Their simulation is awesome, and you can try it by clicking here.

The Atlantic explains how it works:

[It] draws data from the 2010 U.S. Census and depends on the SIR model, an epidemiological model sometimes used to predict the spread of real-life infectious diseases like measles and rubella. In the SIR model, individuals are either susceptible (S), infected (I) or recovered or immune (R) from a disease. But with zombies, of course, there’s a bit of a twist: Once a zombie, always a zombie. There are no R’s here.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told HuffPost Weird News that there are no known viruses “that would reanimate the dead or present zombie-like symptoms.” If there were, however, things would —> Read More Here

Ancient City, Once Home To A Long-Lost Civilization, Found In Honduras Rainforest

A team of archaeologists were searching for the fabled “White City,” also known as the “City of the Monkey God,” in the Honduras jungle. But during the course of their hunt, they say they may have stumbled upon something far more remarkable: not merely a long-lost city, but an entire, unidentified civilization.

The story of this discovery begins in 2012 when an aerial survey of a remote valley in La Mosquitia, Honduras, revealed evidence of the ruins of a pre-Columbian city. As National Geographic notes, some experts thought the ruins might be part of the legendary “White City.” This “mystical, Eden-like paradise,” which has captivated explorers for at least a century, was described in indigenous stories as a place where Indians were said to have hidden from Spanish conquistadores.

The site of the “White City” has never been confirmed.

Trees are still thick within a pocket of jungle in the Mosquitia that is home to the ruins of an ancient civilization.

With the support of the Honduran government, the team recently embarked on an expedition to the surveyed area to discover firsthand whether or not the “White City” had actually been located. What —> Read More Here
