College degrees to prepare you for #zombies?! Art imitates life, and life imitates art. It is well known that both literary and cinema masterpieces have proved to be harbingers for the future. Demolition Man (1993) predicted Skype, iPads, and GPS years before the word “Internet” was even formalized. An obscure comedy Americathon (1979) depicted reality television, forecast China as a global power, anticipated the dissolution of the USSR, and even foresaw America’s obsession with boutique coffee drinks. Hollywood has proven useful in predicting impending crises and innovative technology—except for hoverboards. We’re still waiting.
In years to come, we will likely look back on the cinematic achievements of shows like The Walking Dead, or cult movie classics like 28 Days Later, and Night of the Living Dead and wonder, “Why, oh why didn’t we listen?” Heed the warning friends: a threat of greater proportions than man-bear-pig (half man, half bear, half pig) is imminently upon us. Casting the rest of us into a shadowy, grave-like state of hiding, we will be left fending for our lives against the voracious hoard of animate corpses intent on our destruction. Then, and only then will we realize that maybe we should have picked a better major than 19th Century Feminist Literature.
❝If you’re ready for zombies, you’re ready for anything.❞—@MattMogk While preparation for the zombie apocalypse might seem like a waste of time, just remember the soon-to-be portentous words of Matt Mogk, founder of the Zombie Research Society, “If you’re ready for zombies, you’re ready for anything.” Seeing as we’ve already got the technology in place for “super viruses,” it’s time to face the facts: a zombie outbreak is virtually inevitable.
Thankfully, these days of horror have not yet come to pass, and there is still ample time to prepare! From re-learning basic agriculture, to fashioning weapons, to building survival technology, we here at The Best Schools have a list of majors that will ensure the survival of our race when (not “if”) the flesh-eating pseudo humans take over. You’re welcome.
