What are your chances of surviving a zombie apocalypse?

Recommended Posts

I know some of you fools watch the walking dead...

 

I also am willing to bet some of you fools are into zombies.

Personally im a huge fan of zombie noir and movies.

 

Back in the day I read the Zombie survival guide and WWZ(The book is 1000000x's better than the movie) both are good reads even if you're not an undead enthusiast.

 

That being said, and the lack of new threads I thought id post this here.

 

My homie who is an even bigger zombie head than me made a questionare that is pretty

good about asking zombie related shit.

 

I scored an 80/100. If you're bored or into zombie you should take it and post your score.

have also read both!

co-signed that world war z is great. first time i read it, it actually kept me up at night - it was a fun read and i would recommend.

 

took the quiz and didn't get a score out of 100 (did i take the wrong one?), but it said i'd live a few weeks to a few months. that sounds about right.

58/100

You made it past the intial outbreak but you don't possess the skills or mentality to make it in an undead world. The good news is you only have had to see a few of your friends and loved ones die, the bad news is after a few days they'll be putting a bullet into you.

67%

 

I took the every man for himself options and the avoid zombies instead of fighting options most of the time.

 

 

I used to love the orig Dawn of the Dead when I was a kid. 28 days/weeks was the only zombie movie to ever freak me at least a little, it just seemed a bit more realistic than most others. I am Legend was fucking stupid.

@ Injury, that is just the time assessment answer, if you scroll down it gives you a number out of 100. I think you got the 3rd best total out of 6 or 7.

 

@ Schnitzel, so far you are the lowest score of the four of us who have taken it :p

 

@ Hua/Christo, I was the same man. Aint no love in a zombie outbreak. I can't really ride a horse and I don't workout daily but otherwise I think my answers were solid.

 

80 is still the number to beat. My friends have been doing fucking horrible, 40's and mid 50's.

someone gotta die first......I just don't have the long term attention to detail that would be required of a post apocalyptic life.

Haha...atleast you're cowardly enough to admit it.

 

I'd try to survive just to kill as many things as possible.

Damn, congratulation. You're the new second place.

 

80 still the score to beat, but 75 was the previous closest second.

I listened to WWZ and I am Legend audio books on youtube recently. Enjoyed both.

I got 97%, but I answered like I thought they would want, not as I would actually do.

 

That completely defeats the point. Im sure I could get a 100% but im not going to say im an expert horse rider or a gym rat when im not.

 

You should try to take it seriously, being ex-military(aren't you?) you would have advantages most people would not.

That's still a top score, the average right now after atleast 50 people have taken it is a 56.

 

My homegirl got a 75, and most of my boys are getting 50's and low 60's.

Womp womp.

Of the 57 unique test takers...

 

Percent Chance of survival:

52%

 

 

67% scored higher,

8% scored the same, and

25% scored lower

 

The unique bit tickled me. Only 57 people took the test so far.

 

I like to think I would be a diff person in those circumstances, but maybe wanting being too nice got me all killed. I'd def get crazy about protecting kids, for one.

 

Oh well.

I took the horse question as a trick, TBH. I'm not a rider but I figured a horse seeing a strange person sprinting towards it would bolt and an experienced rider would know that. So I chose differently.

 

Went AR over shtty as well. Shotty may require less accuracy but there was no mention of mag capacity and if it was not pump or semi then you'd be reloading after every two rounds where the AR has 30 rnd capacity.

I chose a hunting rifle. I have never fired a gun. I figured (my only 'exp' being video games) that I could use the rifle to shoot from a distance, for distraction, 'sniping' etc.

 

I am way too small to fight off a zombie one on one. Really I should have taken that into account haha.

 

I am interested to know how your friend worked out the scores, Cunt. Any chance of asking him and posting an explanation? It's cool, well thought out, so I'd like an insight :)

 

Wll share.

@ Hua/Christo

 

 

The questions are scored considering all factors.

 

The horse question wasn't a trick question, but if you said ''Ive never ridden, get on it anyway'' that's the worst answer over just trying to run.

 

The AR-15 was a good choice, but the best was the Hunting Rifle. Consider weight, availibility of ammunition afterwards etc. etc.

 

Like with the Vehicle question, about 70% of the people say a Truck with offroad capability...which sounds great, but the Truck would be loud as fuck, bulky and poor gas mileage. Thus it's a mediocre to poor answer.

My homeboy and I are one in the same :wink2:

I didn't directly say I made it in case I left some trace of my name or something on it,

but ive looked it over and my identity is safe.

 

Im glad for the warm reception, I appreciate you guys taking it.

 

TDB, what do you want to know exactly?

Each question is weighted for different reasons.

 

Most of them I considered ever factor possible, long term and short term.

 

If you have specific questions id be happy to answer them.

I got a 56% but I did answer honestly, and being from the UK there are no guns/gunshops/ability to shoot moving targets hahahaha

I am pissed off at question one. The implication that I would 'grab a firearm' to 'try and escape' is fucking dumb. Stand and deliver. I will do it though, but yeah, #1 annoys me.
