You know it’s coming. The zombie apocalypse, that is. So if you already live in Boston, then good for you, and if you don’t – better make plans to load up the U-Haul and move there. Once just the best place if you wanted to dump your tea into a harbor, according to a study from job site, CareerBuilder, Boston is now the best city you can be in if you want to survive the zombie apocalypse based on factors such as population density, industrial resources, skilled labor concentration and medical facilities.

In the study’s hypothetical zombie outbreak scenario, your “standard, flesh-eating virus” is released into the population and is “transmitted via biting or contact with infected blood.” Cities with particularly high concentrations of military, law enforcement and security personnel – fared well in the report’s rankings.

Not surprisingly, tightly packed urban cities like New York, Chicago and Philadelphia are good for zombies but bad for virus containment – cities that are more spread out are deemed much better for stemming zombified virus-gone-wild scenarios.

Of course, as any survivalist nut worth their nutball status knows, you will need a good supply of food when the Nazi zombies invade and you’re safely in your bunker. In a somewhat perplexing development, Grand Rapids, Michigan – not exactly noted as the breadbasket nor the garden spot of America – comes out on top as the best place to bury yourself underground with a bunch of food.
