Connecticut unlikely to survive zombie apocalypse


When it comes to surviving the zombie apocalypse, location is everything.

And, if faced with attacking hordes of brain-hungry corpses, Connecticut would be the zombie equivalent of an all-you-can-eat buffet.

That’s according to Estately, a real estate blog that ranked the Nutmeg State 46th on its totally scientific list of “U.S. States Most And Least Likely To Survive The Zombie Apocalypse.”

The website, which based its finding on “11 metrics that measure fighting ability,” placed Alaska, Wyoming and Colorado at the one, two and three spots, respectively.

Metrics included number of active military personnel, people with guns and people with knowledge of zombies. Estately also factored in the number of laser tag and paint ball enthusiasts — because, you know, lasers and paintballs are really effective ways of killing the undead.

Behind Connecticut at the bottom of the list are Georgia (sorry, ‘Walking Dead’ gang), New York, the District of Columbia, Mississippi and New Jersey.

Here’s Connecticut’s zombie preparedness profile:


Residents of Connecticut should either begin playing laser tag or start seasoning themselves because if the zombie apocalypse started today they’d get eaten up as appetizers.
