3 Big Hypothetical Questions

I love nonsensical hypothetical questions, and a recent video YouTube recommended to me was full of such questions. Here are a few of them and my answers; I may return to this in the future for more conversation fodder.

  1. Could you survive a zombie apocalypse better than the average person?
  2. Could you land a plane in an emergency?
  3. Would you rather time travel to the past or the future?

Zombie Apocalypse: In some ways, I’m well equipped for a zombie apocalypse. I’m cautious, I’m fast, and I have 20/20 vision. However, I get migraines if I don’t eat or sleep on a regular basis, and I don’t think I’m the prototypical survivalist (I don’t know how most things work, nor do I ever want to shoot a gun).

Land a Plane: I doubt I could land a plane in a flying simulation, much less an actual vehicle in the sky. Instead, I’d try to find the most skilled video gamer on board and help to get them in the mindset of landing the plane.

Time Travel: I’d love to travel to the past to see how St. Louis has evolved over the years (including going way, way back before there was a St. Louis), but I’m just a little more intrigued by what this world will look like 10, 100, 1,000, and 10,000 years in the future. So time travel to the future it is!

What are your answers to these questions?

  1. Ok, so:

    1) I am a diabetic, so my survivability is limited by how much random insulin I can find. I work in a hospital, therefore I am CPR and first aid trained, so as long as I can raid said hospital first, I will be an asset to whatever group I attach to.

    2) I have played a ton of Pilotwings on the Super Nintendo, but since the plane probably doesn’t use a D-pad as its steering device, I’m in bad shape here too.

    3) I’m going to the future, to acquire the cure for the diabetes that plagued me in question 1. Maybe I’ll get the “can fly a plane” cybernetic implant while I’m there!
