Why Orlando Would Be An Awesome Location For A Walking Dead Spin Off

“The Walking Dead” is a nearly unstoppable cultural phenomenon. The television show is setting unprecedented records, and now the undead nightmare can’t be contained to simply one show. A second spin-off show, set in a new city, with a new batch of survivors, is on the way.

So, all of the alive and breathing folks at the Movoto Real Estate Blog decided to throw AMC a bone and use numbers and math and all the luxurious tools people can use when they don’t need to fight for their lives, to help narrow it down a bit.

And what do you know? There must be something magical—or unlucky—in the water in Florida, as their fleshy, undead metrics have chosen Orlando as the perfect location for the next show.

Check out the map and details below on how they came up with this location:

We’re talking, of course, about the question of which is more popular: cats or dogs.
Here at the Movoto Real Estate Blog, we think it’s high time to end this stupid battle: dogs are the more popular pet, hands down, no questions asked, final answer, period.
Now before you get all hissy, allow us to explain.
For this map, we went from state to state, noting the number of Facebook Likes for each of the five most popular pets: dogs, cats, fish, birds, and reptiles.
Overall, dogs were the most popular out of the five in every single state (that’s 50 points for dog people!), but we wanted to take a closer look at America’s pet preferences. After all, we love helping people find homes, but we love animals just as much.
