I last three months.
I can't run or walk. If the temps drop below freezing, my body goes rigid and I can't move at all.
Wouldn't be able to contact anyone without a phone.
I have plenty of food, water and used to not eating much
It didn't ask if you would have enough medication. I can't get more than a 3 month supply. None of them are to keep me alive, mostly for pain. I'm on an antidepressant and would have to ration those and wean off or I might go nuts!
Basically I'm screwed.
50 years, im the dog in independence day...

I have asked this question, and been told that the nuclear power plants are designed to shut down.
They have to store spent fuel rods under water for years to wait for the radioactive elements to break down to less radioactive forms. There is no clean 'off switch' for nuclear fuel rods, once they have been fissioning for a while. They purr along at a lower level of heat output (than they produced while operating under a continuous chain reaction), no matter what you do with them, because of the production of all those unstable isotopes in the wreckage of uranium atoms. This is one of the things that makes dealing with the waste from reactors so much of a long term problem.
