Now you can enroll in a university course to survive the zombie apocalypse

Until the zombie apocalypse is truly upon us, it’s fair to assume that us humans will never stop flogging the undead brains of zombies. And now, the University of California, Irvine, is introducing the eight-week Society, Science, Survival: Lessons from AMC’s The Walking Dead course.

Starting from Oct 14, the course promises to cover science and survival topics from The Walking Dead, such as nutrition in a post-apocalyptic world (“are squirrels really good for you?”) and stress management techniques in disaster situations (“what’s the long-term effect of always sleeping with one eye open?”). We are definitely signing up for this.
