What would you do in the event of a zombie outbreak? Cornell University researchers took time out of their apparently not too busy schedules to determine the best course of action in the event of a zombie invasion. Based on models of the spread of real diseases, they found that major cities could be toast within days, but less populated areas could be unaffected for weeks. However, they found that your best bet would be to head to the northern Mountain Time Zone, which they say could be safe for months. They reason that once the zombies invade more sparsely populated areas, the whole outbreak slows down because there are fewer humans to bite, and therefore zombies are created at a slower rate.
