Everyone is responding on their skills and what they would do.
I don't know what I could contribute
I;m an 18 year old college student
cant hunt
cant fish
cant cook
im in pretty solid shape though so I could maybe do some heavy lifting
I'm pretty good with my hands, given a little time I maybe could put a decent shelter together
All I know is that I wouldn't lay in the sun an sunbathe and bitch about things
#103 - ruped (11/17/2014) [-]
I think the point was more that they wouldn't get along, that in fighting would begin quickly. As it always does in reality shows where there are teams of men and women (Apprentice, Hells Kitchen etc).

I'm a future doctor, learned a good deal from boy scouts and living in rural northern U.S. and think I would do ok. Inafter you say inb4 to legitimate rebuttals. Yes, not everyone here is a "survivor" but 25% is better than 0.001% the SJWs have
User avatar #65 - shunkahawolf (11/17/2014) [-]
currently out of shape introvert with only self taught shelter making skills from several years ago, know how to shoot with both gun and bow, not a leader but will follow directions as long as they make sense. will do my fair share of work and probably more with no computer to take up all my time.

sign me up.
#58 - blzebub (11/17/2014) [-]
Currently in DEP pool to go SEAL.
Survival shows are the only T.V. I watch.
Working out is currently my life other than my warehouse job.
Not picky about food.
Not an emotional wreck, would be willing to kill anyone if necessary.
Understand physics, according to military I'm extremely smart.
I don't goof around till the shit is done. There's work, then there's play.
I used to build shelters as a kid. Would get bored, find a bunch of spare wood or bark, then proceed to build traps, levers, bridges, etc. Probably not normal to build an intricate death machine but whatever, it was a fun way to pass the time. I'm also sure a hobo stayed the night in one of them.
#61 - blzebub (11/17/2014) [-]
*also pretty sure a hobo*

Also I am pretty much a recluse. I only talk to people around once a day, mostly just inane bullshit. I can only focus about an hour if I it isn't important otherwise I get bored and move on to something else.

#31 - angelusprimus (11/17/2014) [-]
I grew up on a farm.
Spent summers on my grandparent's farm until I was 19.
I wouldn't even bother with grains without a tractor. But vegetables, raising animals, slaughtering, skinning and preparing meat, fishing all that wouldn't be a problem.
I wouldn't WANT to live that way. its hard, backbreaking constant work. But if I had to I could.
#28 - lexoheight (11/17/2014) [-]
I'm pretty sure I could maintain a garden, and I can definitely clean and cook a fish. A lot of us would probably do OK
User avatar #27 - aherorising (11/17/2014) [-]
I'm a computer programmer and definitely not in shape. I know that as of now I wouldn't excell at survival as much as many others, but neither would I neglect the neccessities for survival and sunbathe. I may be weak, but I'd make sure to contribute in whatever way I could. Whether it is strategic assesment of shelter locations, attempting to design traps, or simple things as just gathering wood and resources, I would definitely not sit around and do nothing.
User avatar #26 - ninjaroo (11/17/2014) [-]
Given shelter, running water and a source of food? I think I'd be okay, honestly. I wouldn't be happy and I'd fuck a lot of shit up, but I'd be okay.

Actually, the source is Neil Gaiman's "The Sandman" Comics, in particular, a comic in the first arc called "24 hours".
A deranged villain with mind controlling powers holds the people in a diner hostage for 24 hours, over the course of which he drives them mad and causes them to kill themselves/ each other.

Jeez, somebody failed their white people test. You need to review chapter three. It's all about how everyone's race and privileges (or lack of them) are the result of their own hard work and good character (or lack of it). I know, it *seems* like maybe we're born into a system with built-in inequality, but you have to train yourself to ignore that.

I mean, the indignation and insults like "retarded" are good start, but they're just not enough to make you a fully Qualified White Person.

I wasn't complaining about oppression.

Just the fact that they've complained about stupider things makes it seem incredibly likely that they'll complain about this too.

At first I was just trying to figure out what this actually had to do with misogyny, but then we got to talking. I'm just really bored with all of the "grr argh feminists are so awful" posts lately.

I'm not an academic on the subject, but enough that it unnerves me how much the term gets bashed on the site. It's like they've come up with a terrifying construct and are scared they'll find it under their beds, like how people used to feel about communists.

I don't know *why* it picked up on that - I wouldn't think google was tailoring it to show me those results as it's not really my thing.
I was actually reading recently an article in Forbes that said there's actually a lot less of the internet that's porn than everyone thinks, maybe only about 4%. But I didn't get a chance to finish reading it so I didn't get their evidence.

Ran out of room to reply:
Anyway, I currently live in what was my family home with my siblings and two other renters (my parents moved, we live in the house and pay rent). As for the travelling, I did a 6 month study abroad program in France a couple years back, and had the option to travel around a bit. I lived in Dijon, in Burgundy, which isn't quite as sketchy as the south.
As for Fargo, I can't recommend it enough. It's hilarious, and at times really intense. I like my humour pretty dark so it works for me.
User avatar #36 to #35 - thebestpieever (12/05/2013) [-]
That's pretty sweet. When I lived in the UK being of age I used every opportunity to travel around. Especially Italy, I love Italy. I still do that, to a certain extent. In fact I recently moved to Washington DC.
User avatar #37 to #36 - twistedwoodthing (12/05/2013) [-]
Oh cool, spent about two weeks in Northern Italy. Rome, Florence, Sienna, Venice. I went on a bus tour that was primarily comprised of retired aussies and kiwis, they were a lark.
What are you doing in Washington DC? I suppose the standard assumption is something to do with government.
User avatar #38 to #37 - thebestpieever (12/05/2013) [-]
No, my contract my then-current employer ended with and at the same time I had friction with the girl I was living with in Missouri. So, since I've been travelling all around since I was 15, I just packed my things in a container, got up on my bike and decided on a spot on the map. I'm looking for a job, but I have enough saved to live for about 10 months.

Anyways, pleased to meet you... Twisted? That sounds like an awful thing to call someone! What may I call you?
User avatar #6 to #5 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
It's a reference to a character from the Gormenghast books (if you don't know them, it's just about the strangest fantasy series I've ever read. Only the first, and maybe second, books are worth reading because the author was partially insane by the time he wrote the third). You can just call me Thing, or Chloe if you prefer.
Why did you decide to go by Thebestpieever? And shall I call you pie?
User avatar #8 to #6 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
I like Chloe; Chloe's pretty.
Well, I used to listen to watch this show where the usernames would sent in silly things that happened whilst they played videogames and the hosts would often comment on the usernames of the senders. So, I thought this would spark some nice comment.
As for what you call me, yeah Pie's fine, you can also call me Walker.
I also think I'm gonna read those books as soon as I'm finished with the one I'm reading now.
User avatar #10 to #8 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
The writing is amazing, but it's not easy going. Mervyn Peake was also an illustrator, so he describes a lot of scenes very meticulously. It's great for visualizing the enormous, gothic castle where it all takes place, and the characters he describes are by turns complex and over the top. Sometimes all the description is overwhelming and you'd give anything for a bit of simple dialogue. But I've yet to read a series that felt so much like there was an actual world behind it.

What are you reading right now? I'm always on the lookout for recommendations.
User avatar #11 to #10 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
I've been reading a book called "Jam" by Ben Croshaw. It's... It's alright. I'm about 60 pages in and so far there's been some really obvious problems narration-wise to the point where I often have to go back a few pages because I've found myself completely lost about that the characters are currently doing. The stream of conciousness narration is very well done, when it's there, but it has a very inconsistent style of narration and tone. It is a very good comedy when it tries to be one, but the more serious stuff feels haphazard and more like an attempt by the author to be validated rather than any serious story he wanted to tell.

Oh cool, Yahtzee's book! (or one of them anyway, I think he has two now) Yeah, I'm sorry to hear it has issues, although I'd like to read it. I love his game reviews, I was wondering how the sense of humour would translate to a full length novel.
User avatar #13 to #12 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
You know Yahtzee, that's co cool. I never read Mogworld, but from what I hear most people liked it better than Jam.. The humour is there, and really well done, though.
So I take it you play videogames?
User avatar #15 to #13 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
If I manage to save up for a new laptop any time in the next year, though, I'd like to play Amnesia, I love horror. I'd like to try to get a copy of bioshock, too, since everyone raves about it and my brother might let me borrow his 360 after exam period. Do you have any recommendations?

So you like games, reviews of games, reading and silly pictures in funnyjunk. What else do you like?
User avatar #18 to #17 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
Science Fiction and Horror, (both reading it, writing it, and watching movies), the Daily Show and the Colbert Report, webcomics and baking. I've only recently taken up playing MTG and Dungeons & Dragons, but I love them, and music-wise, I've got a very mongrel taste but lately I've been listening to increasing amounts of metal.
And what about you sir? Likes? Dislikes? Pet Peeves? Quirks?
User avatar #19 to #18 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
Horror an fantasy, also reading, writing and watching it. Game Of Thrones, The Graham Norton Show, Friends (The only shows I watch that haven't created a super invasive fandom that has alienated the rest of the internet) Music: Everything, really, but I'm mainly a fan of Rock'n'roll. Also a big fan of metal, though, Black Sabbath is my second favourite band. I'm also big on motorcycles: riding, fixing, looking, buying, all of it.
As for pet peeves and quirks: I can't think of any pet peeve that's big enough to mention, and I have waaay too many little quirks.
Sir, I like that; you are a very refined woman, milady.

I noticed some Dr Who on your profile (I was creeping - best way to find good stuff on Funny Junk is to browse your friends' uploads/favourites.) I likes me some doctor but I'm way behind, and I'm not sure I could ever warm up to Matt Smith. Tennant's my favourite, in part because I so respect him as an actor (goddamn brilliant hamlet), and in part because I have a fangirlish crush. Don't judge me.
Speaking of, I got some serious feels from some of the stuff in your faves, esp. "Love" and "Ancient Wisdom." that's good taste right there.
Black Sabbath is actually playing in my city next year, but I haven't heard enough of them to know if I should try to get tickets. Do you have any album suggestions?
Also, you mentioned moving to the states, and given the references to Dr. Who and Treacle, I'm guessing from somewhere in the UK? Basically, what accent should I be reading your comments in, haha?
User avatar #21 to #20 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
When it comes to Black Sabbath it comes like this:
The first two: Black Sabbath and Paranoid are masterpieces; superb albums, don't think I've hear anything like them. The third, Master of Reality is great but nothing close. Vol. 4 is good. The Fifth, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is also great. Sixth, Sabotage is also good. The seventh, Technical ecstasy is very good but it sounds nothing like what comes before or after. The eight just blows. The Ninth, Heaven and Hell is also a masterpiece but it is heaver than anything they've done. And the tenth is also great, Master of Reality level. After that, they have some good stuff, some bad stuff but nothing as noteworthy (I would suggest "Cross Purposes" "13" and "Headless Cross).

When it comes to the accent... that's weird. I was born in Spain, but I lived in the UK till I was six. Then we moved to Spain for the briefest time (like 4 months) but I was in the hospital so it might as well have been the UK. Then we moved to Mexico. Then I went back to the UK and now America. So... yeah, my accent is as if a Spaniard tried and half succeeded to speak in a midlands accent. It's a shame that the whole ordeal messed up my English accent 'cause I don't even speak Spanish all that well.

With you I guess I can imagine (Being oot and aboot with some loonies in your pocket, eh) what kind of accent you have.

On the theme of Doctor Who, I like Smiths performance but I think that most of the stories he's been in have been rubbish save for about 10 throughout his whole run.

Well in that case I'll probably start with the first two, and Heaven and Hell (I tend to like it pretty heavy, so that sounds like my direction.)
As to accent, I never used to think I had one until I became friends with some Americans on an exchange. We sounded just the same until it came to words like "out and about", whereupon they'd giggle at how I said it. The way they said it, to me, sounded like flapping your mouth open to catch flies. I actually visited a bit of England once, only a little under a week in London (and only a weekend in Spain) but I'd love to go back someday. Ever been North of the US border?
User avatar #32 to #31 - thebestpieever (12/05/2013) [-]
I'm a big fan of the way they speak in the Americas overall. From the southern states to Canada, it all sounds really cool to me. Also... I apologise in the name of the British Nation for anything you may have seen in London if you went anywhere near the east side of town.

I've been to Canada three times. My parents used to own a little house near Whitehorse, so we'd sometimes go there in the winter to ski and stuff. And just once I went over the border while I was faffing about in NYC after a work trip. I liked it, it really is my type of place. Sunny and warm locales just aren't my style.

I don't know how people can live in tropical places, the lack of seasonal change would send me haywire. I think it's a deep-rooted, physiological thing. And aside from the confusing metro system London was quite pleasant, I saw worse things in France daily.
I haven't yet been to Whitehorse and that end of the country (I'm from the east coast), but I'm trying to save to go there this summer.
As to accents, there are a lot of good ones. I'd have to say my favourite out of anywhere is a slight Indian or Irish accent, although for North America there's some newfie accents that are surprisingly musical. Have you ever seen the movie Fargo? The accents in it are exaggerated but hilarious.
User avatar #34 to #33 - thebestpieever (12/05/2013) [-]
Yeah, France is... really rough. Not exactly nice.
I had assumed you lived with your family, and, by extension you'd go on holiday with them. But apparently I was wrong; do you live on your own?
Also, no, I really want to watch it but it's on that infinite queue of "Damn it I was born in the 90's so there are 70 years of good movies to catch up on".
User avatar #16 to #15 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
Yeah, I feel you. I used to be a spoilt rich kid and a super hardcore gamer and then some stuff happened and I had to get a job and I have the time to play like a game a month, if that. I still watch all the reviews and stuff.

For PC I would recommend my favourite game: Fallout 3, the sequel New Vegas. Alan Wake, it's not perfect but it is unlike anything I've seen. Bioshock, definitely, Infitine is goot but not as much as one and you should avoid 2. If you like tactical games I would recommend Xcom. If you like Fable I would suggest Skyrim since it takes the freedom aspect to the extreme and in the opposite side I would suggest Mass Effect since it takes the narrative and customisation also to the extreme.

Sigh, sad confession bear time: I spend a lot of time on the internet, on sites like this, reading comics, watching reviews etc that have to do with video games, but my brother is the real gamer in my house. I don't think I've played anything seriously since Fable 2, and haven't been better at him at a game since Starfox 64. I'd play computer games, but my laptop wouldn't be able to handle it. So, essentially, I'm immersed in gaming culture, love talking and hearing about it, but can't play.
I am the filthiest of casuals.
