You might think The Walking Dead is heartless and gruesome, but it's nothing compared to what would actually happen in a zombie apocalypse. At least, that's the case researchers at the University of Leicester are making.
Most zombie stories are predicated on the notion that humans stand a chance against the zombie invaders, even if it's just a small group fighting for survival. The researchers have dug into what would happen in the event of a full-fledged zombie apocalypse for a paper in the University's peer-reviewed Journal of Physics Special Topics. Unfortunately, it doesn't look good for you humans.
Their findings say that 100 days after the zombie outbreak, a population 7.5 billion would be whittled down to "100 to 200 survivors." Those lonely, lonely people would be surrounded by 190 million zombies.
