Come on, admit it, at one point in your life you have worried that our cozy little civilization would one day fall as the zombie hordes swept across the Earth. Its okay, it’s only natural to think that. In fact, there are many people out in the world who are already prepared for a zombie apocalypse, but there are many more that are not. Now, a zombie apocalypse may be regulated only to the movies, unless some rage-infected monkeys get out, but if there is a sudden increase in the undead, you will want to avoid these locations.
Okay, so the recently deceased are coming back to life and chewing on the living? Most people when they feel sick go to the hospital. So, with these two tidbits of information, what do you think will have the highest concentration of newly-recruited zombies? The hospital! This is the place you do not want to be when the zombie apocalypse begins because this is typically where it all starts. More and more people come into the hospital, and more and more zombies come out. If you are in a hospital, you might as well consider your number up because this is it; you aren’t getting out of there as a living human.
2. In A Traffic Jam
Rule number one with zombies is to stay away from any place where you can be surrounded, boxed in, with literally no avenue for escape. Zombies can easily be outrun (at least under old-school zombie rules), but if they surround you its game over. So, think of a place where you are boxed in, with no escape, and people all around you. Yes, that’s right, the traffic jam. If a zombie outbreak hits your traffic jam, you will be surrounded by a lot of hungry undead commuters. So, you are in your car as a ravenous horde of zombies begins to move around. What do you do? You can sit in your car and hope they walk past, but they won’t and now you are like a sardine in a can for them. You can make a run for it, but you won’t get far, and you can try to drive away but, well, you are in a traffic jam. Don’t worry though, in about five minutes you will be one of the undead.
You may think a skyscraper is the perfect place to be in a zombie apocalypse. Sure, you are high above the ground, you can watch the carnage below and if you have enough food and water you will be able to relax back and wait for the apocalypse to burn itself out. Well, sadly, in the long run you are not safe at all. Eventually you have to leave the apartment building, and that is when trouble begins. First, the elevators probably don’t work so you need to take the stairs and you better hope there aren’t zombies in there. Once you get down the stairs and through the narrow halls, you need to get outside of the building where you will most likely meet a lot of zombies. The other problem with being in a skyscraper is there are other people in there with you who will turn to zombies and if they know you are in your apartment, there really is nowhere for you to go but down.
