Canadian University Students Model Zombie Attacks

arthurpaliden arthurpaliden writes  |  about 5 years ago

arthurpaliden writes "University of Ottawa mathematics students have produced a report of the survivability of Zombie attacks. There conclusion was that unless the infection could be stopped with in the first ten days we are all doomed.

Although the authors of the model said the actual scenario is "unlikely" the resultant methodology could have real-world applications when applied to diseases with dormant infection periods. It also provides a useful framework in instances when scientists are dealing with the outbreak of an unknown disease."

arthurpaliden writes "A French space-surveillance radar has detected 20-30 satellites in low Earth orbit that do not figure in the U.S. Defense Department's published catalogue, a discovery that French officials say they will use to pressure U.S. authorities to stop publishing the whereabouts of French reconnaissance and military communications satellites.

"They told us, 'If we have not published it in our catalogue, then it does not exist.' So I guess we have been tracking objects that do not exist. I can tell you that some of these non-existent objects have solar arrays.""

arthurpaliden writes "An odd-looking Canadian quarter with a bright red flower was the culprit behind a false espionage warning from the Defense Department about mysterious coins with radio frequency transmitters. The harmless "poppy quarter" was so unfamiliar to suspicious U.S. Army contractors traveling in Canada that they filed confidential espionage accounts about them. The worried contractors described the coins as "filled with something man-made that looked like nano-technology," according to once-classified U.S. government reports and e-mails obtained by the AP."
