I wonder how much funding they got for this and what they actually spent it on:

Probably on watching bad zombie flicks and reading "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies".

Seriously though, I hope that no funding was wasted on this.

That is the conclusion of a mathematical exercise carried out by researchers in Canada.

Yeah, we really needed a mathematical proof of that.

Interesting that 'zombies' has now become media's catchall term for victims of any spec-fic viral plagues that prompt violent hysteria...

I don't find the study half as weird as the guy having a question mark as part of his surname.

I'm thinking of changing mine to Ali?& Little'wood!?!

Heh, probably a shitload of George Ramero films, and the Resident Evil games backcatalogue.

Someone clearly got paid to goof off.



On the other hand, it's good to see that someone is addressing completely mental fears about the fall of civilization. Who's betting we're a few days away from a Daily Mirror headline proclaiming the Zombie Apocalypse.

On the other hand, Odyssey & Oracle is an outstanding album... :wink:
