Who would win in a war between the human race and the zombies?

Since it has now been proven beyond reasonable doubt that mathematical models are infallible (Al Gore et al.), so much so that even political decisions affecting billions of people and involving trillions of dollars are taken based on their results, I feel compelled to draw your attention to an even more momentous prediction than global warming disasters or climate change Armageddons: who would win in a war between the human race and zombies?

It is possible to successfully fend off a zombie attack, according to Canadian mathematicians. The key is to “hit hard and hit often.” Oh yes, somebody actually did a study on mathematics of a hypothetical zombie attack, and published it in a book on infectious disease. So, while we still don’t know what to do if a deadly asteroid takes aim at Earth, an unlikely but technically possible situation, we now know what to do in case of a zombie attack. “An outbreak of zombies is likely to be disastrous, unless extremely aggressive tactics are employed against the undead,” the authors wrote. “It is imperative that zombies are dealt with quickly, or else we are all in a great deal of trouble.”

There is hope yet.
