Mine are 56%... I think the fact that I've never handled a gun before turns out to be of importance in case zombies get unleashed >.<

Hmm, I must have done something wrong. I got 74%. Maybe I got an age bonus.

I have a 56% chance of survival...the fact that I am an excellent sharp shooter and don't own a gun may have been my downfall:)

Um. They seem to have an obsession with brains. Not exactly fast food (and when did you ever see a zombie carrying a chainsaw or axe or anything sufficiently heavy, to crack open a skull)?

I think these quizzes are composed by some "black ops" outfit. Then they monitor all we input (+IP addresses) :)

sparky. I actually did underate my origional score. ie I said I don't own a gun. I do but but it's not here. But within 2-3 minutes I can get hold of a rifle and several shotguns (thus I updated).
And I marked myself as disabled. When I can actually run a mile. (slowly). But outrun any Zombie :)

We need more young women with high scores. Else we will die out over time anyhow.

In actual fact. This world does not need men at all. Women can produce babies without us!

OK OK,I believe you,then maybe I should have been a scumbag and said every man for himself,and run off without trying to help out some strangers.

That's what I did in the quiz,I stopped to help the strangers,otherwise I'd probably have a higher score.

If you are all alone. You will not survive. Unless you live in the mountains. Or a high level security house in the city (with a garage big enough for a tank)!

I mean.. I believe under the right circumstances any of us could survive a zombie apocalypse.. for only some time.. I mean...

What if the zombies eat all animals? what would you feed yourself of? (This sounds like such good news for vegans) or if you ran away from cities where would you run to? mountains its ok but air is thin, and if zombies dont make it up there neither will anyone living =P would you go living to a deserted island? can zombies swim? would we need to take a ship to mars? O___O...

I guess that's why WHS has taken pictures of mars... =P

Ahhhh,but I have a secret weapon,Cruiser the Boozer.He loves to slurp on my beer,when I'm not watching.All I need to do is whisper in his ear,about the Zombies going after the beer.Move over Old Yeller,watch my Yeller dog in action.When he was 4 months old,I left him in the car with a bowl of water,I came back awhile later and all my cans of beer had puncture marks and the beer gone.He didn't even touch the water!

Hey, my little dogs like that. When a crowd of of us were sitting around in a circle (beer bottle on the ground next to you), my dog would gently nudge the the bottles over, and drink! And one night, a very large whiskey.

I had a 72% chance, but if I had to choose between saving people I dont know and living, I CHOOSE TO LIVE!
