Left 4 Dead 2 Bodycount

The Left 4 Dead Blog has some startling statistics on how many zombies have been dispatched since the launch of Left 4 Dead 2, Valve's zombie shooter sequel. Word is:

In the first two months of Left 4 Dead 2's release, 28,981,249,043 zombies have been shot, bludgeoned, chainsawed and killed or, for our younger readers, taken to a farm where they can frolic and shuffle around forever.

You read that correctly: 28 BILLION. To put that number in perspective:

    • The entire population of the planet has been zombified and killed 4.26 times.

    • With the average height of a zombie being 6 feet, if you stacked them end to end they would circle the globe 1,322 times.

    • If you placed 28,981,249,043 rulers end to end, they would reach 28,981,249,043 feet in the sky.

In short: That is a bucketload of dead zombies. Nice job, everyone.

All those 12" rulers have about 1/8" extra at each end, so they are all 12.25" long. That means the figure is short by 603776021.72916666666666666666667 feet or 114351.51926688762626262626262626 miles! ;-)

Still, this is pretty funny.

God: Why not ask the book about your actions on Earth and how they impacted your loved one?

William David Reynolds: In a minute. Book, if I made bricks out of all the poop I ever pooped out and built a 6-foot high wall out of the bricks, how long could I make that wall?

[The book displays 2.7 miles]

God: This is ridiculous. Book, tell this man how many moments of happiness he gave his friends and family.

William David Reynolds: Boring! Book, could I have filled the Empire State Building with my own poop?

God: Don't answer that, book!

William David Reynolds: I want to know!

God: No!
