The best way to survive the zombie apocalypse

The unofficial zombie apocalypse returns this Sunday with the season 6 premiere of "The Walking Dead."

Christopher Ingraham from the Washington Post is ready for the show's return and a potential zombie invasion, which is why he created a definitive guide for how gauge your area's "survivability" for when zombies strike.

An ideal setting for suvival has the following features: low population density, guns, military forces or experience, terrain difficult for zombies to navigate and bodies of water.

Appropriately enough, areas in the south (and Atlanta, where the show is filmed) have a low to very low risk of zombie survival whereas areas in the north and especially the west all have high zombie survivability factors.

Luckily the zombie apocalypse isn't actually real, but that makes it especially fun to discuss the "what if" and how to be prepared.

You can adjust the settings specific to your surroundings here, which is also where Ingraham explains his analysis for each factor and the data he used.

Facebook's new emoji feature 'already feels normal'

In case you missed it (or were working productively Friday), Facebook announced it is rolling out six new emoji (smiley face) icons that can be used in place of 'likes' on updates.

The rollout started in Ireland Friday, and one person wrote about the first day for Mashable.

First things first: The proper term for the emojis on Facebook is the Facebook Reactions feature.

Second, to use the feature, users must "long tap" (i.e. hold) the 'like' button and to "be greeted by an emotional Rolodex," Marie Boran says on Mashable.

While the emojis can be used on posts, they cannot be used and returned in comments, she says.

And while Facebook's latest feature was rolled out to counteract the passiveness and perceived inappropriateness (i.e, 'liking' a status about a tragedy) of its universal thumbs-up, Boran says it still didn't feel appropriate to use an emoji on an update about a friend's relationship ending.

Still, the use of emojis is slowly but surely finding its place for the right moments and "already feels normal," according to Boran.

And the need for human interaction still hasn't been completely replaced. Go figure.

Boys missing from Kentucky campsite found safe

Two boys, ages 5 and 7, who got separated from their family at Kentucky's Red River Gorge campsite were found unharmed Friday afternoon.

They had been missing for about 20 hours, according to a local news report.

Nine search and rescue agencies hunted for the two cousins, who wandered off as the adults were setting up the campsite, according to another news report. Overnight temperatures were mild, the report said.

Unharmed, the boys only reported symptoms of hunger.

The parents were worried, but one of the boys, Michael, told WKYT he saw the incident as an adventure and was proud of his survival instincts despite not being old enough to join Boy Scouts.

The boys were located fairly easily because they stayed within 5 miles of the campsite, according to WKYT.

Nearly 130 people were involved with the search.
