Honolulu International Airport is No. 3 in America…

… at potentially spreading a global pandemic, unfortunately.


Published:

An interesting piece at hawaiireporter.com describes MIT research finding that airports in New York, Los Angeles and Honolulu—because they are nodes for travelers to and from widely distributed communities—may play a role in the rapid spread of future pandemics.

If this is too creepy to contemplate, just imagine that the pandemic in question is not some ebola-type horror but is, instead, the global zombie apocalypse in which you, with your gritty determination to survive and natural leadership skills, will lead the last band of uninfected humans to safety in the abandoned Army bunkers of Diamond Head. Those zombies, they never think to look in craters.

Yes. We've been watching too much of The Walking Dead.
