Apparently, some Canadians got SO bored, they decided to actually create a mathematical model on how a zombie outbreak would spread, and what would need to happen to contain it.
They concluded that the outbreak would have to be dealt with "quickly and aggressively" if it were to be contained. Any other method would not work, and spell the end of civilisation.
Or, to put it another way: Canadian mathematicians have WAY too much free time on their hands.
What I really want to know (besides why the fuck they thought this was worth doing) is why this is on the BBC's website. Hell, it was even on the TV for a little while! If that's not the criteria for a slow news week, I dunno what is.
Any Canadians want to share their views on where their tax dollars have gone this time?
