This was a fun discussion Josh and I once had, inspired by a question Josh got in a consulting interview.
You find out that in one week, a virus will be released that will quickly spread all over the world. You stumbled upon this secret and absolutely convincing information, but unfortunately the evidence was lost/destroyed as soon as you saw it. You know it’s too late to stop this virus from being released, or the subsequent rapid spread. This virus will turn everyone it infects into a zombie, who will then try to basically turn normal humans into zombies, and kill/eat normal people. Other than that, you don’t really know what the zombies will be like (whether they’ll die after some period of time, be stronger/more durable, retain intelligence, etc), but it’s highly likely that the extent of the pandemic will reach apocalyptic proportions.
What would you do given that information? Post what your plans would be, and at the end of the week we’ll post what we came up with originally.
Follow-up post here.
