The Zombie Map
by Perry Michael Simon on September 28, 2011
I know this has been making the rounds of the Net, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t post the map showing where people are Googling the word “Zombies”:
It’s the creation of the University of Oxford’s Oxford Internet Institute, which makes all sorts of interesting maps and graphs. This one shows that the U.S. and Europe are particulary zombie-centric. Actually, what it really shows is that searching for zombies is prevalent where there are a lot of people speaking English, which makes sense. It’s not that the rest of the world doesn’t care, it’s that they don’t speak English. Or that they’re already zombified. I don’t know. Maybe our resident zombie expert Jonah Ray can explain.
