You're watching TV and all of a sudden, the program interrupts with a breaking news story about how a zombie apocalypse is spreading to where you live. What do you do at first?

Tell yourself that it isn't actually true, but the next day when you start to hear a strange
growling noise outside your house you finally throw together a pack with "necessary
supplies" if you leave.
You are filled with dread and you bury your head in a pillow for a few hours, but finally
prepare a pack with "necessary supplies" if you leave.
You panic, but then decide to board up all your windows and prepare a pack with
necessary supplies if you leave.
You quickly board up all your downstairs windows (Let's say your house has two stories)
so you can keep watch upstairs and prepare a pack with necessary supplies if you
leave.

What's in your pack? (Serious weapons will come later) Be honest...

What's in your pack? (Serious weapons will come later) Be honest...
Many bottles of water, pocketknife, a few jars of iodine tablets in case you need to
purify water from another source, a first-aid kit with rubbing alcohol, lots of bandages, ointment, fever
medicine, etc, a lighter, a big supply of dehydrated food like dried
fruit, sunflower seeds and dried meat, a canteen, a small sleeping bag, a pocket knife,
and a flashlight with lots of spare batteries.
Many bottles of water, pocketknife, a few bags of crackers and dried meat, a flashlight with lots of spare
batteries, a lighter, a canteen, and a picture of your family.
Bottles of water, a few loaves of bread, a flashlight with spare batteries, your phone,
and a picture of your family.
A few bottles of water, a box of cornflakes, a flashlight, your phone, a picture of your
family, and a book about Plants vs. Zombies which might be useful

How well can you run?

How well can you assemble and fire a gun or shoot an arrow with a bow or crossbow? Aim is considered.

How well can you assemble and fire a gun or shoot an arrow with a bow or crossbow? Aim is considered.
I can assemble a gun and put an arrow to my bow quickly and effectively. My aim is
highly accurate and I know to pull hard enough on the bow and the bowstring every
time so that the arrow will go as far as it needs to.
I can assemble a gun, but slowly, and I am getting quicker at it every day. I can put an
arrow to my bow at a reasonable speed with few mistakes. My aim is accurate enough,
and most of the time I can pull the bowstring and bow hard enough so that the arrow
goes far enough.
I can sort of assemble a gun since I haven't done it before the apocalypse. I can put an
arrow to my bow at a reasonable speed, but many times with mistakes. My aim isn't
very good, but okay for close combat, and sometimes--only sometimes--I don't pull the
bowstring and bow hard enough so the arrow doesn't go as far as it should.
I can't assemble a gun. I make many mistakes when I put an arrow to my bow, slowly.
My aim is pretty bad, and most of the time I don't pull the bow and bowstring hard
enough so that the arrow doesn't go far.

Do you choose to go in a group, and if so, how many people will be in it and ideally which kinds of people?

Do you choose to go in a group, and if so, how many people will be in it and ideally which kinds of people?
Yes, I will travel in a group of 3-4 people tops, including me. Preferably there would be an experienced
survival-skill teacher, an experienced soldier, and perhaps a friend from home. All of them would have to be
both physically fit and mentally prepared.
Yes, I will travel with my family and my friends, and maybe my friends' families will come along as well, who
cares about the number of people.
Going solo!

Where do you (and your group if you have one) reside for most of the apocalypse?

It doesn't really matter, as long at it is suitable for survival and has little to no zombies. I/We could camp out
in the forest for the first few week or so, beside a clean source of water for drinking, animals for hunting,
and edible plants/roots/berries pointed out by our survival skill expert if we have one. Then when the city's
cleared out and the forest is full of people and the zombies might encroach on us, we would raid the last of
the non-perishable food and weapons left in the city and go back to the house for a while, which should be
zombie-free since all of the people are gone.
I would love to stay in our house, but it isn't safe there. Maybe we could take the last of the food and
weapons in the city, then get somewhere safe and stay for the rest of the apocalypse.
The forest. I heard that there's edible plants and stuff there, and a clean source of water, and that zombies
don't like it!
In the house for the whole time. It brings such good memories, and I can't leave it...

You (and your group if you have one) wake up the next morning to find that all of your food is gone. Your survival skill expert (if you have one) has vanished and there is no way of telling which plants in your yard or in the woods are edible or not. You search around for a while, and eventually find a few things that could provide some nourishment. Your pack(s) only have room for one of them, so what do you take and eat?

A big bunch of those juicy-looking red berries I found growing on a bush nearby
An opened bag of bread; it might seem a little dry and moldy but the label says it's "multigrain" bread and
unusually large, about a foot wide and two feet long
A large "family size" packet of chicken lunch meat; it looks like it's been opened before.
A gigantic jar of honey, as large as your own head, which hasn't been opened before.

Your water supply is running low. If you had iodine pills you have lost them. There are many different natural water sources available, but the zombies are on your tail so you only have a limited amount of time to collect water from one of the sources. Which one do you pick?

I'll collect the morning dew off leaves. It has to be clean, but it might take a while.
A quick-flowing, clear stream. The water doesn't have time to get dirty; it is moving so quickly.
Rainwater; it is pretty clean and the sky is overcast, so it might rain and it might not.
There are a few small pools of water in some large boulders. They have some leaves and a tiny bit of dirt in
them, but otherwise look clean enough.
I'll suck the water out of clumps of moss. I heard that moss already has natural iodine in it so the water is
already purified.
A lake. The water has a few plants drifting around in it and it looks kind of dark, but I think it's clean...

How do you (and your group if you have one) plan to protect yourselves from hypothermia at night and on cold days?

How do you (and your group if you have one) plan to protect yourselves from hypothermia at night and on cold days?
Thermal blankets
Thick coats
A covering of leaves, pine needles, grass, etc.
Insulated sleeping bag
Hypothermia? What's hypothermia?

After a day or so, your survival skill expert (if you don't have one, it's one of the members of your group or one of the members of your family) turns up, and it turns out he/she was bitten by another zombie! He/she is turning green and you (none of the others in your group in you have one) have some medicine in your pack which can reduce the effects of being bitten and, if you're lucky and you have enough of the medicine, the person can be healed completely. Still, it's risky. What do you do?

I have a limited supply of medicine, and I have to save some for myself in case I get bitten, but if it's the
survival skill expert I'll give him some to hold him off while I ask him for advice on which plants are which to
eat and how best to make a fire, etc. If he isn't the survival skill expert, I'll just say goodbye to him and push
him off a cliff or something. There is no room for humanity; he/she is going to become a flesh-eating
zombie anyway.
I'll have to give him some; it's the right thing to do, whoever he is. Then, while he's asleep or something,
me (and my group if I have one) will get out, fast.
I'll give him half of my medicine, then stay with him until the medicine runs out. Apocalypse or no
apocalypse, I have to do this.
I'll give him all of the medicine, then give him some food, weapons, and water. Then I'll try to nurse him
back to health until there is no hope for him. I can't allow him to suffer.

You (and your group if you have one) is attacked by a mob of zombies! The exits to your camp are blocked by zombies. What do you do?

You (and your group if you have one) is attacked by a mob of zombies! The exits to your camp are blocked by zombies. What do you do?
As quickly as I can, I fight my way through the zombies using whatever weapon I have, being sure to
decapitate the heads of every one in my path, towards the nearest exit. My survival is the only thing
concerned right now; I can't worry about the rest of my group (if I have one).
Look frantically for the nearest exit, then, when I spot one, I yell to my group (if I have one) to follow me as
I disable as many zombies as possible in my path towards the exit.
Panic for nearly a minute, wondering whether my group (if I have one) is safe, then fight my way through
the zombies unsure of where the nearest exit is. I try to decapitate the zombies' heads, but I miss some.
I'm dead, I'm dead, I'm dead...
