Mine said I would last 40 years and end up like a tribal god or like Kevin Costner in Waterworld, and they're sticking with me. If they only knew my age.

I had to look that up! Oh really some snot nosed kid? Damn!

I think I can make it more than 1 month sheesh. I'm resourceful after all is said and done and smart enough to make it more than a month me thinks. IDK when yellowstone blows that will be the end of things for a while.

If the main power to controls is knocked out, generators kick in. Once those run out of fuel, then there is a likely hood of a meltdown. Emergency cooling will then kick in, but it will still not be all that helpful. Seeing as these emergency systems are never tested (because if they are they destroy the reactors), and more and more of them are being converted to digital control rooms, we just assume they will work as they have been designed - however, no power to run the systems, then no power to control the reactions/steam output. In an apocalypse situation, nuclear plants will eventually meltdown. No big deal though, it's the apocalypse. If these failures don't get you, something else likely will.

Ten years.

I don't want to live for ten years after the apocalypse, I want to be at ground freaking zero.

According to that silly survey I would only last one year!

I bet my score began to plumet when I started executing the looters.

Depends what kind of apocalypse we are talking about.

Personally I don't think I'd last long at all. I have no food or water in reserve and no weapons except for a baseball bat and a big kitchen knife.

Some end of the world type scenarios are;

A zombie type virus outbreak.
A nuclear war with a full scale strike by the US, Russia and anyone else who wants to join in.
An big asteroid strike.

The first one would probably be the one which kills the least people but the other 2 could lead to almost 100% fatality. Unless you became a cave dweller and then food would be very hard to come by.

Yup think thats were alot of you tough die hards are going wrong.

One man with a AR-15 wont last long against a whole band armed with the same.

You can be as manly and as strong as you like but get into a wrong fight and your dead. Even a simple injury could be fatal.


Me I said run, run and avoid. I got 5 years survival in the test.

I was (am) a US Marine.
I'll survive right along with all my other Marines...
just fine.


I was (am) a nerd. I'll hide and die slowly along with all my other nerds (playing Rainbow Six on an improvised PS3 made of wood) just fine too.

Your test is broken....


"The results are in! You'd survive for
twenty years

after the apocalypse.

If you go out, it won't be through lack of trying. It'll be bad luck that gets you in the end.

You're basically Mel Gibson in Mad Max."

Not very long. I don't have a hidden stash of supplies and I don't think I'm physically as strong as I could be. I think it would be beneficial if someone had extra supplies somewhere and was overweight but not obese (need the fat in case you run out of food) and so on. They also have ot be physically strong and well toned. I think many of the sedentary people and/or office workers or desk workers would not do very well because their bodies would not be prepared for it. I would think the ambitious adventerous type who do well in life right now would also do well in the apocalypse.

Who does the rescuing when there's a natural disaster? Military and coast guard and some relief organizations. Those're the people who have some experience in disasters. I would think they'd be mentally and probably physically prepared.
