Zombie apocalypse scenarios are discussed too much. What would you do in the following scenarios? Feel free to just answer as many as you want.

1. A supervirus with a 100% mortality rate that is highly contagious and airborne begins to wreak havoc on humanity. There is no cure. What do you do?

2. Vampires now emerge at night to feed on people. Survivors of their attacks become vampires. Vampires are stronger, faster, more intelligent, and more deadly than people. They are also able to use technology and have heightened senses. Their only weaknesses are decapitation and sunlight. What do you do?

Consider: Vampires go into a bloodthirsty state when hungry. Humans will turn after being bitten so donating blood to the vampires is the only way to sate their thirst without doing too much damage to the human population. Vampires must feed on around the same amount of blood as food required by humans daily. Other vampire types and races may also exist: jiang shi, aswang, etc. Whether the vampires choose to work with humans, they are going to lord over humans.

3. Werewolves now roam around at night. They are even stronger and have a even better senses than vampires. They regenerate quickly, are tireless, and have the ability to howl so loudly that nearby creatures become disoriented. Survivors of the attacks become werewolves. What do you do?

Consider: Werewolves lose their higher brain functions when in wolf state. They cannot think or control their actions with human thought until they become human again. They are not weak against silver bullets. Silver is just another metal. They do not need to feed on humans but will kill them if they encounter them. Other animals become were-creatures if they survive a werewolf attack as well, not just humans. Were-creatures are less likely to attack one another.

4. All non-human animals on the planet now become much more intelligent and work together to kill all humans. What do you do?

5. Robots become sophisticated enough to gain awareness. They can learn and each robot can send its knowledge to other robots. They are able to learn how to repair themselves and create better, stronger future models. What do you do?

Consider: Humans are inferior, inefficient, and harmful to the planet according to the robots. The human social system is cumbersome and useless. They will not negotiate unless the reason is REALLY good.

6. The real world becomes a Minecraft world. What do you do?

7. All people become mers. We lose our legs and become weaker and a bit smaller. Our access to our land technology is gone and all we have are primitive handheld weapons and must live in sea water. What do you do?

8. Humans are now less than a foot tall on average. Insects and arachnids have become ten times bigger. What do you do?

Consider: The oxygen levels in the air have become comparable to that in prehistoric times during which such large insects and arachnids existed. They will not have difficulty breathing.

9. All the prehistoric creatures are back and the human population of the world has been reduced by 90%. You are a survivor. What do you do?

1. I'd probably try to live in the wilderness by myself and away from people and end up dying from something other than the virus, but dying all the same.

2. I'd probably try to find a group of well-armed survivors with a fortress and try to hold out there. Or I'd attempt to go to a remove area to attempt wilderness survival.

3. Same as 2 but I'd stay with the fortress.

4. I'd start buying guns, fortify my house, and stock up on insecticides. Might be easier to hold out in a place with friends. Preferably a place that is hard to reach, like at the top of a hill. Birds might be a problem, though. The house and entrances must be heavily fortified, and cracks must be sealed to prevent the bugs from coming in.

5. Live in some sort of underground city for as long as possible before the robots become too advanced to beat, track us down, and kill us all.

6. Live in some city/village. I'd probably go cave diving and end up lost and dead somewhere near the bedrock and never be found again.

7. I would freak out and live near the beaches in shallower water so the big sea predators have a harder time attacking me. During a storm, I will have to dive deeper. That's the scariest and most dangerous part.

8. I'd build a new house out of stone with some friends. I am pretty into entomology so I probably know how to deal with many bugs. It would suck if something like a snake or a mountain lion came along, though. We would have no chance at all against them. Falling into a spider web would be certain death.

9. Stock up on guns and arrows, live in a high place, like a tower. I will need allies around so we can actually sleep and throw out enough firepower to kill anything.

Zombie apocalypse scenarios are discussed too much. What would you do in the following scenarios? Feel free to just answer as many as you want.


1. A supervirus with a 100% mortality rate that is highly contagious and airborne begins to wreak havoc on humanity. There is no cure. What do you do?

Hmm I think the most important thing to determine here would be how long the virus can survive without a host. With a 100% mortality rate It will kill off it's means of reproducing itself relatively quickly a uninfected group in a hermetically sealed environment may outlast it. If It can lie dormant in the air indefinitely that's tricky potentially we could look at developing a vaccine with a weakened form to treat the as yet uninfected, long term we would need to look at altering the human genome to provide a artificial resistance. We would probably start by looking for animals in which the virus is contagious but non lethal as a starting point. If all else fails start creating a knowledge vault for any sentient species that may arise after us.


2. Vampires now emerge at night to feed on people. Survivors of their attacks become vampires. Vampires are stronger, faster, more intelligent, and more deadly than people. They are also able to use technology and have heightened senses. Their only weakness is decapitation and sunlight. What do you do?


Negotiate, if the vampires are truly more intelligent than us they will see the long term risk of having all their food turned into competitors for food. Likely some accommodation could be reached as unless they wish to spend the rest of eternity as human farmers they are going to need to limit their population, and having humans giving blood rather than having to attack them and turn them into vampires in the process makes allot more sense.

3. Werewolves now roam around at night. They are even stronger and have a even better senses than vampires. They regenerate quickly, are tireless, and have the ability to howl so loudly that nearby creatures become disoriented. Survivors of the attacks become werewolves. What do you do?


I'm assuming werewolves can eat other foods than humans, and the werewolves look like normal humans by day(or at least can change at will). In this case I'm inclined to embrace werewolfdom it seems like a upgrade.

4. All non-human animals on the planet now become much more intelligent and work together to kill all humans. What do you do?

This really depends on how much more intelligent the animals are and weather they posses/can develop a common language. Most genus's would struggle to utilise our tech so we would have a initial advantage. Negotiation ultimately may be the best option unless they are suicidal and pursue a war of extermination that would likely leave them with no humans and a radioactive wasteland of a planet to die in.


5. Robots become sophisticated enough to gain awareness. They can learn and each robot can send its knowledge to other robots. They are able to learn how to repair themselves and create better, stronger future models. What do you do?

Give them equal rights, treat them as sentients and hope for the best. Chances are we would hit the singularity fairly soon with their help after which the difference is moot.

6. The real world becomes a Minecraft world. What do you do?

The same thing we do every minecraft game, try to find diamonds and fall in lava doing so.

7. All people become mers. We lose our legs and become weaker and a bit smaller. Our access to our land technology is gone and all we have are primitive handheld weapons and must live in sea water. What do you do?


So well this is awkward, try to adapt and maintain our written languages/knowledge base. Then rebuild our industrial/agricultural society underwater I guess at least there's plenty of room down here.

8. Humans are now less than a foot tall on average. Insects and arachnids have become ten times bigger. What do you do?


Laugh as all the wasps suffocate, attempt to save the bees.


9. All the prehistoric creatures are back and the human population of the world has been reduced by 90%. You are a survivor. What do you do?


Turn to 80's cartoons for advice.
