Either the ratings were made by a random number generator or a 4 year old child was the reference source. This table has no merit to it's claims
@The Rainbow Dash, yep. They have both good and bad things going to the same score, and with most things being scored being good, higher scores should be good instead of bad
@The Rainbow Dash, Well New Jersey is last so this is 100% legit in my book.
@The Rainbow Dash, zombies are physically impossible anyway
@ImAFvckingDog, Guys, look at the freaking data. It's not a score, it's an order of "where does my state rank in this category". It's actual data, 1 being the top state, 51 being to worst state. It's all in order, and the ones with the lower scores go up top. Do you all understand?
@Mathgeek, yes but why do military personnel count toward the score being higher and causing it to be weighted towards bad, do you understand?
@The Rainbow Dash, no kidding. I live in Arkansas and I don't know anyone who doesn't have at least one gun in the house. And we are given a 13.
@Mathgeek, wait! Now I get it! It's the states rank based on each category therefore the higher their rank the lower the number! I'm dumb...
@Mathgeek, yup my mathematical brother you are correct. This terrible dataset places California at number 32 of 51 for 'knowledge of zombies ' statistically below the median and mean of states... Do they know about Hollywood? We Californians are sort of famous for our zombie movies.
@Taliban Stan, not necessarily. The fungi that causes the zombie outbreak in The Last of Us is based on a real fungus that does the exact same thing it does in the game. Only thing is it only works on insects and I mean things don't ever mutate to be able to reach more types of hosts right? *whispers* swine flu did....
@The Rainbow Dash, yeah theres no way in hell that Texas is 34th in gun owners, we have the third highest population and damn near everyone ive met in Texas owns at least one gun
@The Rainbow Dash, Yeah. Unless they are counting bears there is no way Alaska has the most military personnel. Virginia has some of the largest military bases in the world and somehow loses to North Dakota and Kansas.
@Whiterattler, yeah i think it's like a 'per capita' deal. So the higher ranking for military is mp to civvies ratio. I know California has some Air Force and naval bases because we rock so it's weird that Sarah Palin can defend better than an F-22 Raptor but meh *shrugs*
@The Rainbow Dash, no way it can be accurate. Georgia 47th? There are more shotguns than people here, and no hesitation about using them
@Mathgeek, I disagree with Texas being 34th for gun owners... And 33 for obesity when we had 3 of the top 10 most obese cities.
@The Rainbow Dash, I'm geussing It's per capita
@Top Tags, what's wrong with NJ
Pennsylvania 30th not bad
@SaraJean15, with Washington right behind it. But they are counting for all the people who live in the I5 corridor of the state. Those of use who hunt and can comfortably handle guns will probably survive.
@SaraJean15, PA BITCHES
@SaraJean15, Yeah, coming from a PA resident I think Pa should be much higher on this list. The zombies would just get stuck in all our potholes.
@SaraJean15, thats horrible
@SaraJean15, fellow Pennsylvanian?
@SaraJean15, I'm in Pennsylvania too ._. I'm gonna f**king die
@TheSequimKid, I guess I'm screwed. I had hope for a minute 😜
@SaraJean15, yeah philly gangsters would gun down zombies in the streets. Yes I live right outside philly btw.
And I live in New Jersey
@The Fighting Chicken, Same
@The Fighting Chicken, Same brah. What town you in?
@The Fighting Chicken, Same.
@The Fighting Chicken, same
@The Fighting Chicken, I guess I'll just stay away at college.....
@The Fighting Chicken, same here! Well, we can all come together and fight the zombies
Texas and Louisiana aren't even in the top 25, are u high?
@doritolicious, They're down low because they'd have a better chance at surviving.
@Christian Bale, dont know why downvotes... you are right...
#50 in obesity and #1 in gun ownership. 'Tucky
@Gaydolf Titler, just noticed that. Only Louisiana has more tubby bitches than the bluegrass state.
Hell yeah for here in Arizona! Probably cuz the heat will just melt the zombies' faces off.
@Harshmellows, go AZ! With the best gun laws in the nation I'm pretty sure we would be at the top, and could all just set up base in New River and be fine lol
@Harshmellows, Nice to see there is more than one other person for AZ here.
Apparently New Jersey is a horrible place to live. Oh wait I already knew that.
@John Titor, well I'm screwed then
@John Titor, hey I'm from Jersey! Say what you want, but Snooki is scary enough to keep the dead away!
@John Titor, last in the USA in laser tag, no thanks I will head to Wisconsin! Lol
@John Titor, I'll have you know I'm from New Jersey and I own plenty of guns
Are we all just ignoring the fact that the amount of U.S States this chart goes to is 51?
@Thundercus, Washington DC
@Gaydolf Titler, District of Columbia
@Thundercus, first comment to notice that
Wait this makes no sense shouldn't the higher totals be more likely?
@Pretty Sweet, Oh wait nevermind it's referring to the top 50 in those numbers
If you were in Alaska services such as heat would stop sometime after the outbreak, you would die by nature before you died from zombies
@Michael Fassbender, but the shear amount of people who survive already without technology or outside help is already fairly high
Not sure what the ranking scale is. Not sure how to judge this. But eh, it's on the internet so it must be true
@ThumbsUpMan, i believe each column is ranked by the percentage of the people in that state that fall into each category, then those rankings are added up and the state's are ordered lowest to highest. However, this seems like a terribly inaccurate way to figure this out.
@Mathgeek, right, but i mean i think those tasks are based on the percent of the population that fits into that category
@FlyingAcorn, NO. It's ranked with all 51 numbers being used each column! It's a sales rating system, with 1 being "the best state in this feild".
Well I live in New Jersey... Guess who is moving to Alaska!
@skylorbooth52, Plus we hand out free money for dealing with the winters...
@DFYANT, That settles it I am moving to Alaska
Apparently Alaska is North Korea.
Nope. Not reading that, now way.
@iBoner, no way* dammit
This makes no sense, you want a lower number of military personnel and physically active?
I think Texas has a lot more gun owners and military personnel than Hawaii, though I'm not sure about the latter
@Sexy Homunculus, i kinda figured Texas would be higher up. There are like 5 guns per house where I'm from
Woo I live in Colorado!
wait, so why isn't Texas #1?!?!
Living in Kentucky i can confirm that we have the most guns
Shenanigans. Louisiana has the largest Army base, an Air force base, and a naval ship yard. And everyone owns a gun and most of the state is rural. We got this. And wildlife to eat and so on
#5 not bad.
I live in New Jersey... It's actually a really nice place it's just that it has a really bad reputation, which is understandable.
How many people on here from Pennsylvania?
@Comic Girl, yes. it should be a higher rank
Considering on the first day of hunting season Pennsylvania has like the fourth largest militia in the world, it should be a lot higher than 30th
Yay we finally got that 51st state
Ummmm you do not know Pennsylvanians. Guns and survival skills out the ass.
41st. But I live on the border of 49. Poop.
I'm really quite upset New York is 48
Will i feel safe in colorado
33rd? Hipster zombies can't be that bad, come on.
DAMMIT NEW YORK WHAT ARE YOU DOING
Actually Texas is the only state that could maintain itself in the event of a disconnect from other states (the likes of which a zombie apocalypse would cause)
Wisconsin #10 woo!
Am i the only one who noticed theres 51 listings but only 50 states???
Y is their 51 freaking states
@iceman3465, District of Columbia
...fvck. God damn it, Alabama. Get your sh!t together.
@I Have A Cat, alabama would do well. Overweight zombies and everyone has guns here.
Anyone else notice that there are 51 states
Well fvck, I'm in Tennessee
I feel this is very VERY off
This table was made so that boring states would feel better about themselves...
"I play paintball so that can be a determining factor in my zombie apocalypse survival odds."
New Mexico number 5 woop woop
Well glad I live in Wyoming right now
B¡tchin' Iowa is 15th
Nebraska should be way higher, we have offuit Air Force base, most people own guns, a lot of people live in the country and know how to survive. And you have to think about how much of the state is open land. You can fit the entire worlds population into cherry county and still have room for a gold course, and it's one of the least populated counties in the state. Nebraska would survive. I'm from Nebraska if you haven't figured it out.
Is NJ ranked last just because everyone hates us?
New York is filled with obese people
Nothin like Americans not Knowing there is 52 states and I don't see Hawaii on this list which makes 52
Then there is Canada where the moose poler bears and Trevor's (gta 5) will protect us
All 51 United States of America... wait...
A. How are there 51 spots? B. Where's Washington?
This is silly obviously the states such as Montana, Utah, Oklahoma, etc would be good they know how to farm, have land and very few people in close proximity. Then you'd have your states like Kentucky, Alabama and Texas etc where you have a large number of gun enthusiasts. The worst places to be would be New York, Chicago, New Jersey because there are so many people in close proximity and it's too cold for them to grow their own produce.
If anything this should be least to most likely unless they expect all of the people who have a chance to turn into zombies
I also don't understand why more military personnel, veterans, gun owners and knowledge of zombies would add up to put you lower on the list...what even
I'm honestly a little surprised that Alabama is so low on this list.
Florida has The Walking Dead Experience, don't tell me we aren't prepared
35th I like them odds
34th, mmmm yeah why won't I survive?
Virginia has only 8 Military Personnel? The Navy almost owns the state. Jets everywhere, ships everywhere, and military everywhere.
Texas just barely makes it pooey
Ok I think I get it. I think it's all based on rankings. Like 1 is best 51 is worst.
3rd, alright cool
Florida..... Well, sh!t....
Apparently our Hoosier State(Indiana) isn't even a state eligible for a zombie apocalypse... It's not on there
Ohio is right in the middle. I'm safe...for now
I'm going to add that California has air craft carriers and water where the zombies can't go, checkmate on basically all other states San Diego is the hub for our navy so...
Why da hell we 6 like I understand Alaska being first but really?!?
Well, Alabama's 45, but EVERYONE there has guns and at least 100,000 rounds ( I think they divide it into 50,000 for your favourite gun, 20,000 for your shotgun, 10,000 for your rifle, 10,000 for your pistol, and 10,000 extra, but don't quote me on that)
Indiana in the top 25, I ain't even mad
New Jeresy, Fvck
New York is probably going off of the statistic of the city, because where I live there's nothing but hills and trees and cold weather. I think we'd last longer than the city. Just saying.
Hell yeah! NJ baby. Imma live!
North Carolina 4 military personnel? You realise NC is home to the largest military installation on the East coast and has a couple hundred thousand military members? This is the worst rating chart for zombie survival...
Yay for being in colorado!
I am almost completely positive that Texas has the most active-duty military personnel (army wise, at least), especially more than Alaska and Hawaii. I'd bet my life they're not #16, so I'm calling this fake
Is this a malteaser?
"I'm moving to Utah"
"Nu'n bad ever happens in Utah!"
Oregon is a shame.... But we actually have a lot of paintball courses but the fat people.......
WHY IS WASHINGTON THE 31st
Suuurreee, only 8 for gun owners in NH XD To be fair we don't have to register firearms.
I'm confused. I'm from New Mexico. It's number 1 in martial arts, knowledge of zombies, and ironman triathlon? How do they even measure those? That sounds false. Obesity and military/veterans should be higher though.
Why is District of Columbia considered a state it's a Capitol.
Its is great here in colorado!
Wait, why are there 51 states?!
YEAH IOWA 15TH SUCK OUR CORN ZOMBIES
Preeetty sure Georgia should be higher on the list. We have lots of military bases, not very many people, rugged/swampy terrain that would be hard to maneuver in if you aren't actively thinking about your movement, and an abundance of guns 'cause 'Murica. (Gun:people= sh!tton:1)
Just curious, who here is in or from Colorado?
#39 California... Fvck
Alaska does not have one person in the military. It has 1,850 National Guardsmen there. Who made this?
@MANTHEHARPOON, there's 15,000 personnel in Anchorage alone... The zombies wouldn't stand a chance...
Saw the photo had 51 states, got pretty mad until I saw that they counted District of Columbia as one, now they're all right in my book.
Texas should be a little ways up there. Literally everyone has at least one gun. If not then other people have plenty of spares.
Dammit! I live in New Jersey! However this chart was very accurate in one particular thing. I am incredible at laser tag.
Hey, for once Mississippi wasn't dead last in something! Or first in something else horrible... My home state sucks.
@zetaprime it was a joke
I'm surprised Texas is in the red.
Oregon should be much higher. Much, MUCH higher. Alaska would be harder to live in than most places, mountains, freezing weather, few towns to raid, etc.
Almost everybody in Louisiana owns a rifle or gun. So how the heck did they come up with that number for gun owners.
Woo 18th. Vermont representing up in here, I have a feeling I'm the only person in this state with this app
Wait, their is 51 states? Since when?
Each state is ranked 1 to 51 on each column then totaled up. 1 being the best state in each category and 51 the worst. That's where they get the total. Lower numbers are better
This can't be right. Georgia is super pro-gun
WHEW MIZZOU IS TWENTY TWO BABY
Excuse me, but Texas would survive. It's country AND city, plenty of guns, and everyone's though as shiz.
Topeka, KS bro number 14
I'll accept 20th.
45th? Not so sure bout that
Massachusetts is 42nd? Have they met a Bostonian?
How in the hell is Louisiana 44th? I'd like to see those undead bastards make it past all our guns, voodoo, and attack gators!
I wonder how it would affect nevada's rank if they knew I lived there and plan on kneecapping my fellow survivors...
Illinois should be higher, I know people that would gun down kids at the sight of an apocalypse
Well sh!t im in new york on the border of new jersey (jersey sucks anyway)
Or floridians can just get on a boat and drive a mile out
I'm from VA ind I can honestly say it would probably half of our population that dies
@Atlas and Pbody, because I would kill them
The District of Columbia's a state? Since when???
I feel being an isolated island in the Pacific Ocean should be a factor.
10th I may survive!
14Th Aye! Not too bad
Number 10 all the way!
District of Columbia is not a state...
Have you even SEEN the Hawaiian fighting style? We specialize in spear throwing and bone breaking, we'd be gettin shjt done
8th!! Whoop whoop! Idk why cuz we're a bunch of desert, maybe cuz there's so many weirdos down at the strip anyways so they'd fit right in.
Why was Wa ranked 29th for survival skills. Wa has two mountain ranges that run through it, some national parks, and a whole lot of forest land. Kids are taught basic survival skills in elementary school, or at least I was.
Missouri reppin' so hard
Sh!t im from jersey...
I never got why people hate on new jersey so much.
I live in Mew Jersey.....
I'm from WV. We're definitely the 50th ranked state in physical fitness. But we got plenty of guns!
A trick to get us to move to Alaska... I'll pass
Ohio just made it. Lol.
Anyone else notice that there are 51 rankings?
@Herpes, they have district of columbia on there
I don't get how Georgia is 47?! They have a TV show set here about people surviving the zombie apocalypse!
@Brosiedon, Also how are we 37th on survival skills the southern half of the state lives on farms!
Lol Wisconsin is ranked so high in the list but also so high I'm obesity. Man I love my state.
