Y'know, I'd do it, but I don't think my character could reach. Wink

Having a boat during the zombie apocalypse could be a very good idea. You could avoid the highways and the zombies and have a source of food and water.

As for avoiding the gun store, I have that covered. Wink

Good for you for recognizing my psychic powers, though.

At least we're consistent. Wink

And the deed has been done. You're welcome Padme', I know you were waiting with baited breath for the ball(s) to get rolling. Wink

Survival Scenario: one of your friends is hopelessly surrounded by zombies. Do you rescue them at near certain doom for yourself...or leave them behind?

That is a toughie. My first instinct is to wade in and help them, though I suppose I should really listen to my brain in that scenario and end my friend's life with a (hopefully) well aimed headshot.

Also: saw the post. Absolutely brilliant Laughing

Thanks Life!

As for Skul's question: it would depend on the scenario. Is the friend performing an act of self-sacrifice to allow the rest of the group to escape? (they don't need or want rescuing) Or did they just have great misfortune to fall behind? Of course it all depends on whether they've already gotten into melee combat in which case it might already be too late (no point rescuing them if they're already overwhelmed and the more merciful thing is to put a bullet in their head).

Assuming for the moment that they aren't in melee combat yet and that it is the latter scenario my loyalty instinct would take priority over the instinct of self preservation. Particularly in the case of it only being the two of us. In that case the danger of rescuing them might be outweighed by the benefit of having someone to watch your back (take shifts during sleeping etc). Overall I'd rather go down fighting beside a friend then go down by myself.

After watching "Judge, Jury, Executioner" (The Walking Dead episode), I really think I might be that idiot with a bunch of books in my backpack rather than survival gear, trying to preserve civilization. I'd probably bring my Bible, my giant book of Western Philosophy, and some fiction (probably Narnia with a few classics) to keep those ideas alive. I'd be dead within hours.

Or I might become a broadsword-wielding maniac, who knows? Wink

Maybe you start off with all those books, loose them when you barely escape death, and the loss of all those books causes something in your head to snap so you become a broadsword wielding maniac?

You NEED to watch the movie "The Book of Eli."

Hahaha. Reep will be the new Eli, but slaying zombies to preserve his copy of the Bible.

But don't discount books in a survival situation. Would be a good idea to have some survival books (like how to treat moderate wounds, dress game, and what plants you can eat).

@Salaris: I could easily see that happening. Razz

@Taral: I should.

@Skuldren: Actually, yeah, that's a good point. I'd probably bring my survival book too.
