The Best Places To Go To In A Zombie Apocalypse

I’ll be honest, there’s never going to be a safe place that’s perfect in a apocalypse. No matter how many times I’ve tried to find a place that sounds perfect there’s always going to be problems with it. So keep in mind that the places I list aren’t going to be absolutely prefect and it really depends on many factors. Such as where it’s located, the type of zombies you’re dealing with, the skills you need in order to survive in such a location, the unpredictable weather/mother nature and if it hasn’t already been taken over by zombies (or other survivors – who may or may not be nice).

In no particular order these places are ideal for survival, some of them are even great for long-term survival. But the key for them being good places is how isolated they are, how self-sustain they are might be and if they have a strong structure and walls for any possible attacks.

Wizards - An Endangered Species

Witches/wizards are very rare when you think in terms of the world as whole. JK Rowling has stated that there are “about 3000” witches/wizards in the UK and there are around 72 million people in the UK. That means magic has a prevalence of 0.0042 in 100,000 people or 42 in 1 million. Given that most genetic diseases have a higher prevalence than magic (cystic fibrosis: 125 in 1 million, sickle cell anaemia 139 in 1 million), we must ask the question: why is magic so rare in humans?

This is series of essays I will explore:

  • The Demographics of the Wizarding World
  • Magical Disease and Medicine
  • War and Dark Lords
  • The Genetics of Magical Inheritance

In order to discover why the wizarding world is so different from our own and why there are so few wizards/witches.

Demographics of the Wizarding World

JK Rowling originally estimated the number of students in Hogwarts to be around 1000 [1]. Although this seems too high compared to the evidence we have in the books based on Harry’s year in Gryffindor, there is very little point in second guessing these figures because of all the things we simply don’t know.

The low number of students in Harry’s year may reflect a corresponding crash in birth rate at the height of Voldemort’s terror campaign and/or a magical epidemic. Gryffindor may be generally a smaller house than the other three. There is no reason to believe that the sorting hat does proportion students out evenly.

Rowling clearly intended Hogwarts, in the time frame that we see it, to be a big school even by muggle standards and children were supposed to represent a significant proportion of the wizarding world.

Many people will bend over backwards to disprove that Hogwarts is so large and the wizarding population so small because they wish to impose the demographics of modern muggle Britain onto Harry Potter’s world. This is entirely fruitless, as the wizarding Britain is a completely separate society developing along a completely different trajectory. 

It may looked like a developed society by muggle standards but one cannot impose the definitions of muggle development: low birth rate/death rate, and long life expectancy, on a magical society. There is no logical reason to believe wizarding society is structured in anyway like muggle Britain. 

These seemingly “skewed” figures may be the key to understanding the wizarding world.

The UN compound near Malakal, South Sudan, is now home to roughly 21,000 people. Conditions are terrible: displaced people are desperately short of space and clean drinking water, and sanitary conditions are poor. The overcrowding in the camps brings a risk of epidemics, as well as exacerbating tensions between those sheltering there. In February, dozens of people were wounded in the camp when fighting broke out between different groups, mirroring the armed clashes in town. In total, MSF and ICRC treated 152 people injured in the violence, 32 of them with gunshot wounds.

“What I love about my job is seeing the overall picture of UNICEF’s work.”

Adam Christopher Tibe, Monitoring and Evaluation Officer at UNICEF Philippines – Tacloban Field Office

If you had to describe your job to a 5 year old, how would you explain it?  

I ensure that UNICEF is on track in keeping our promise to as many children as possible. Do you go to a safe school? Do your parents and neighbours know where to go or what to do when a strong typhoon or earthquake happens?

Back to Mother Nature

“To make the world a better place, I invented a transformative water purifier. It takes in dirty and polluted water from rivers, lakes, and even oceans, then massively transforms the water into clean, safe and sanitary water, when humans and animals drink this water, they will live a healthier life.”

The South Sudanese key strategic town of Malakal came under attack on February 18. The clashes between government and opposition forces forced thousands of people to flee. The nearby UN compound is now home to roughly 21,000 people. Conditions are terrible: displaced people are desperately short of space and clean drinking water, and sanitary conditions are poor.
