Friday Funny: Preparing for the Zombie Apocolypse

Looking for a leg up on the walking undead in preparation for the coming Zombie wars? Map of the Dead from Doejo, may be just what you're looking for, writes Roberto Baldwin

Created by the folks at Doejo, a "mastermind start-up incubator think tank and production house," Map of the Dead has collected information on where to find food and ammunition and "overlays zombie danger zones and potential supply locations on a Google Map of your local haunts."

According to Baldwin, "Red areas denote population centers where zombies might graze, while dark gray zones cover parks and wilderness areas, which are most likely to be walker-free. Supply locations are annotated with helpful descriptions - liquor stores, hospitals, gun shops, military bases and cemeteries are just some of the locations highlighted."

Check out Baldwin's article for an extremely scientific examination of how well New York, Chicago, and San Francisco, "are set up for riding out the zombie plague."
