DEDHAM, Mass — If Massachusetts ever becomes the land of the living dead, Bay Staters are probably doomed. And not just because the Dunkins are closed.
A new report found that Massachusetts is one of the least-prepared states for a zombie apocalypse. The Bay State is only the 38th best state to survive a zombie apocalypse in, according to insuranks.com.
Three New England states did make the Top 10 though. When it comes to a zombie refuge, Rhode Island, Vermont and Maine all rank as better than average.
According to the report, the least-populated states are your best hope. Mountainous and rural states like Wyoming, Alaska and Vermont allow you to set up a defense against a zombie hoard already smaller than the ones you would see in major metropolitan areas.
California is cited as the worst state for surviving a zombie apocalypse.
More than 10% of the 1,000 pollees said they have food stored in case of a zombie apocalypse. A further 24% say they don’t think it is weird to prepare for a zombie apocalypse.
Knowing how to kill a zombie is a vital factor in surviving an apocalypse. Over half, 53%, of Americans said they know how to kill a zombie. On average, wannabe apocalypse survivors said they could kill 39 zombies a day.
When it comes to killing, the most popular weapon of choice is a shotgun, the survey also said.
