Your survival rate is 81% and your "certain death" rate is 0%.

There are likely only a couple extreme scenarios that you don't know how to handle. You have made very few, if any, fatal choices. Any group of travellers should be very glad to have someone like you along for a trip.

My test tracked 2 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
You scored higher than 95% on SurvivalRate (Damn depressing if you ask me)
You scored higher than 1% on DeathRate

I feel marginally redeemed for my abysmal performance on the zombie survival quiz. However, I find it extremely depressing that I (with no particular training) evidently have more common sense than 95% of people in my demographic niche.


See, being more clever at stuff than 50% is pretty easy - and more clever than 90% is not shabby at all considering that most people seem to have the naff badger-ridden-kipperedness of a pre-frosted string bean. It's those last ten percentile points I usually consider worth gunning for, and - yay! - you're doing pretty well.

That said, my mom was an EMT for 26 years, and her stories of non-survivor-friendly human behavior are far out and happy. We're talking about a significant portion of the population who might eat glass or try to cure HIV or blindness with home-electroshock therapy here.

It is thus that I keep expecting the human race to do the big ahn woon - and thus that I'm so bloody nervous about my fellow earth-dwellers. We're statistically just not that clever.

Top ten percentile in something survival oriented? Rock on!
