The Zombie Apocalypse is here

This story:

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/zombie-apocalypse-horror-movie-genre-twisted-real-life-news-headlines-article-1.1089108

is making the rounds on the internet. In fact, it’s being republished and re-blogged almost verbatim. The timing of all these bizarre things is a bit disconcerting. But before you start stock piling your ammo and freeze dried food, consider this: there are about 7 billion people on the planet. Statistically, a very small percentage of them are going to do something truly weird and creepy. Add to that another 5 billion cell phones, countless surveillance cameras and a global communications network that allows everyone on the planet to get instant news feeds – and – the always voracious and sensationalist media aching for blood and scandal and sooner or later you’re going to see a cluster of this sort of behavior.

So don’t worry. The Zombie Apocalypse isn’t happening just yet.

But keep your fingers crossed, summer is just getting started so there’s still hope.
