    My reason of death will be a self inflicted mistake rather than lack of plan or operational weakness. I would live on a yacht, stock it with food every month from a coastal shop and every hour or so shoot my gun for attention, light up fireworks in deep water, they will keep coming and drowning, and also leave a firework at the coast in case anyone saw my firework and wanted to respond.

    What would you do if professional scientists told the world that there would be a Zombie invasion in approximately 5 months? And 50% of the population would surely die. Where would you go and who would you be with?

    A team at Leicester University have warned that mankind would last 100 days if a Zombie apocalypse was to happen.

    This was concluded under the assumption that Zombies are able to find one person a day, with a 90% success rate of infection. This would make a Zombie outbreak more infectious than the Black Death!

    You can read more on the story here

    How long would you last in the Zombie apocalypse?

    Question: Are we talking walking dead type situation where everyone that dies becomes a zombie or are we talking just bitten by zombie = zombie,

    Because surely without the walking dead situation we'd just have to hold out until the flesh decomposes and they're functionally useless... :3

    If you can get hold of a suit like this then it'd take a large amount zombies or overwhelm you. You wouldn't be totally impervious to them as there are some weak points but armed with the right weaponry & a team wearing similar kit then you'd be very difficult to bite.
    The thought of wearing a suit like that = :sexface:

    I probably wouldn't even realise there's a Zombie Apocalypse until the wifi goes out and I have to leave my room to fix it.

    Yeah, but they've got me on sheer numbers - there's only one me and lie 7 billion of them

    You see, they apply maths and science to things; but when instincts are involved they go out the window; so personally I'd guess humanity on earth would last nearer 200. As for those in the ISS, I don't know.

    Myself, I'd salvage the remains of military ammo - find a specific female (and a couple of my mates) get us all to the JPL labs. We'd hold out there and botch together a rocket capable of traveling to the moon and attempt to get there, and survival ideas on the moon are currently based around the film The Martian.

    That's your plan?
    To go to the moon and wait for the whole thing to blow over, while the friends and family you didn't take are attacked and destroyed by zombies?
    That's a stupid plan!
    Go in guns blazing, man!

    Good point, should be somewhere with some atmosphere left so we can develop technology better.

    But yeah, I don't have too many friends so it's easy enough

    It's the kind of thing departments do so that they can issue an amusing press release and via that, hopefully draw attention to their more serious work. I haven't checked into them, but presumably they are epidemiologists studying the spread of pandemics and the like and it was neat for them to apply the tools to a zombie plague.

    I don't see the harm really, why shouldn't science be funny sometimes.
    Well ok, but I think it's a bit irresponsible of them to spend all this time on something completely fictitious when there are real diseases affecting real people that they can work on.

    I'd build a underground house far away from the city. Then I'd buy a life time supply of food.

    A youtuber scientist has done that. He built a underground shelter which is bomb resistant. It's mad. I think his youtuber name is ColinFurze or something like that if you wanna have a look.
