How would you do in a zombie apocalypse?

Be honest and evaluate your true survival skills in a zombie (or any other kind of) apocalypse. Can you build things? Forage? Hunt? Make a fire? Outwit and evade dangerous people and animals and whatever else?

Me, I like to think I have some cunning, but honestly, I'm pretty sure I'd be one of the first to die. I really have no useful postapocalyptic skills. I can't even run very fast.

But how would you do?

First thing you do is move to the country, cities are death traps in an apocaylpse.

Correct. nod

.

Also, if you're from the southern region of the USA, get the hell out of south and travel up north as soon as possible. Zombies cannot survive in ice cold winter season weather conditions.

Back in school so I used to run a 100m in under 11 seconds, so I would be pretty quick to get away from the zombie bastards (who are slow as fuck, by the way).

But after that I'd be knackered, so the next zombie I'd meet would have little trouble eating me alive...

If I was in my old condo I think I’d fair pretty well, for a while at least. I was on the 9th floor and also had access to a rooftop party room complete w/sink, stove, dishwasher, fridge, bathroom and so on. Also a grill outside. And I could wave for helicopter help from there. And in the base of the building is the global market with a small grocery store, Mexican market and lots of restaurant places including one with a bar. I could make trips for supplies when I needed to.

Now that I’m living in a house w/my boyfriend I’m probably doomed. He’ll do well, but I’ll probably die fairly quickly.

I could emulate the zombie walk & groan really well, so hopefully I could walk among them relatively safe.

I would be killed either a few months down the road or I would last the long haul.

I'm good at hiding and I can go for long periods of time without food without being hungry. I'd probably get a gun, some food, and hide in a bank safe for as long as could

There would be a lack of oxygen. No power to circulate air. Plus, it would be sweaty hot.

I'd do okay. All I'd have to do is cut one of my legendary farts... dead zombie!

Freaking great, because there are no such things as zombies.

let's be honest - zombies are not very scary. more like, amusing in a gross way. they are not fast moving, don't seem to be able to perform critical analysis or intellectual functions, they are soft and splatter apart when you whack them with a baseball bat, and the only thing that makes them dangerous is sheer numbers.

i think i'd build a fortress with a moat and assorted other zombie traps to keep them busy enough they'd never notice they weren't eating brains right up until they fell into the zombie pit.

It depends on which zombie rules you want to go by.

.

If you're using the George Romero's original Living Dead series rules, then it's about human flesh in general.

.

If you're using the Return Of The Living Dead series rules, then its about brains.

Apparently you haven't seen the new trailer for the new Brad Pitt movie. In that movie the Zombies move faster than a regular human being.

well that's a game changer eek in the case of fast moving zombies, i'd have to hire the zombie pied piper to drive around town dangling brains from the back of his SUV, leading the fast moving zombies at a good clip out of town and surprise! into the zombie pit
