Math And Zombies?
Do you stay up all night worrying if you could make it through the zombie apocalypse? First of all, what are you watching before you go to bed? Cut it out. Read a nice book of poems, drink some warm milk, relax. Second, you can find out for sure with this equation, according to University of Ottawa math professor Robert J. Smith, who developed this math model to predict a person’s chances in a hypothetical zombie pandemic. Got a pencil? It’s (bN)(S/N)Z=bSZ. You calculate with N=total populations, S=number of susceptible people, Z=zombies and b=likelihood of transmission. The equation shows there’s no chance for co-existence: We either beat the zombies or become the zombies. So if a zombie pandemic does break out, we suggest you throw the calculator out the window and find either Brad Pitt or a chainsaw.
Scandal in Baseball
Any time now, we expect to hear the announcement that as many as 14 Major League Baseball players, several of them All-Stars, will be suspended for their use of performance-enhancing drugs supplied by a now-closed clinic called Biogenesis.

Why Does So Much Weird Stuff Seem To Happen In Florida
A columb in Slate argues that Florida is not only the home to Walt Disney World, but also to the weird. Author Craig Pittman says maybe the reason so much weird stuff happens in Florida is because of its population– the state now has 20-million people. Additionally, 80-million tourtists visit the place each year. All those people combined with a subtropical climate that has creatures like alligators and boa constrictors and you’ve got a recipe for disaster. Florida’s Panama City is the divorce capital of the U.S., while the state also is the number one state for mortgage fraud and identity fraud. There’s even an entire Twitter feed dedicated to “Florida Man” stories. (Yahoo)
