Friday Morning Cartoon: How Geography Could Help You Survive The Zombie Apocalypse

Because there's never a bad time to update your zombie survival plan. You do have a zombie survival plan, don't you?

Pop quiz, hotshot: If tomorrow found the streets of your town crawling with human corpses shambling around in a horrible mockery of life, what would you do? If you don’t have a hideout planned to answer that question, your priorities are just way out of line. Luckily, TED-ED scholar and geography wonk David Hunter has some handy tips on using geographic concepts — like movement of people or resources and identifying push and pull factors that could make a location more or less desirable — to plan your getaway.

Look, the mall is a classic place to hide out in the event of a zombie attack, but let’s face it — everyone is going to show up there, which means that the place is likely going to turn into an abattoir before the walking dead even arrive. Just a little reasoning — using simple geographic cues — can help you land a much cozier perch from which to watch the world end. And really, isn’t that all any of us are looking for?
