We’ve got a pretty sweet Random Cool that begins with this Google map that displays who in the world is Google searching the term “Zombies”. The Oxford Internet Institute created the map to show just what parts of the world reference the term “zombies” by way of their Googling habits. As one can see from the map, most of the world doesn’t care about the living dead trend, though as one might have been able to guess, the higher concentration of zombie fascination is located primarily in the Anglophone world, in population areas of higher concentration, such as big cities. Interestingly, Africa barely has any zombie interested, even though that is from where the word originates. – Geekosystem.
More fun over at Buzzfeed as they’ve put on display “Dead Food,” a series of grave site imagery with animals and humans bearing a name synonymous with food. I hate pickles…
In cool fundraising news, the newly formed sCare Foundation will host its inaugural fundraising event on October 30, 2011, in the Conga Room at L.A. Live. An evening filled with entertainment, dancing and an exciting auction, the event will benefit the CHAMPION Fund at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles to support the life-saving programs of the Hollywood Homeless Youth Project (HHYP).

Lastly, and my favorite random goodness of the day, comes courtesy of FedEx. The delivery service released a “Zombie Outbreak” TV Spot that plays on the undead subgenre and how their quick delivery saves the day. Nothing like getting that anti-virus mailed overnight! Watch it below, with a behind-the-scenes featurette inside.
