If you combined it with a loss of smell maybe it wouldn't be that bad?

If found by a search party you could always pass it off like you tried to rescue her. Hope there was no autopsy.

So you take off in your personal air craft for about 3 hours. When you come back and land, to refuel your plane, you see zombies everywhere. You quickly switch on your radio and find out that the whole world is being taken over by zombies. Whats your plan of action? Do you find a place to stand your ground or do you go out and fight?

Taste! this way I wouldn't like to eat much, I would be able to eat only very healthy food as I woudn't care about its ugly taste)
I would never want to lose smell sense as I like smelling)) same with touching, hearing and etc...)

i'm not sure if eating her would be a good solution even with loss of smell, as you might regret is a few hours later after eating uncooked...

now thinking about it.. wat's the best way for number 2s on the raft?

You are Dr. Alan Grant, and somehow you have been tricked again to come to Jurassic Park. Most of the group you came with have already been eaten, and the rest that haven't, you got split up from. While looking for a way off the island you encounter a t-Rex and quickly run into a small cave. The T-Rex hits the cave with such force that it causes a rock to fall on you pinning your dominant arm and leg. After a while the T-Rex gives up, and leaves. Its been three days since the attack, and your water is on the other side of the cave just out of reach. You will die, if you cant reach the water. You decide to cut of either your leg or arm to get to it, and hopefully the others will find you before you have to cut off the other limb. Which limb do you choose?

Definitely arm. I don't think that would be that bad.

For the zombies, I'd have to scout them in the plane to see what kind of zombies they are. If they're traditional slow, stupid zombies I'd try to wait them out and maybe find some other normals. If they're like the zombies in 28 Days Later with Carl Lewis athletic ability I'd probably just try to take out as many as I could with the plane.

Choose 5 things from the list and say why.

life jacket
box of chocolate bars
compass
sextant
Map of the Atlantic
15x15 Plastic tarp
five gallon jug of water
shark repellant
rope
fishing pole
mirror
pack of water proof matches
your snowboardWink
flash light
a gallon of gasoline
a paddle for the raft
coffee filters
two way radio with a 10 mile radius
crate with a week of food rations
first aid kit
flare gun with two shots
sun screen


Survival - 5 Gallons of water
Survival - Week of food rations
Survival - Chocolate bars
Signal - Flare gun
Signal/To see how damn sexy I am while I die - Mirror

First priority is survival if there's a chance you'll be out there a while, second is to signal rescuers. Everything else can be substituted or done without even if you drift to an island. I figure if you're rich enough to own a yacht, someone will come searching for you. Unless you didn't get a prenup. One thing you didn't mention is the time of year or how cold it will be.

Food and Water for survival
Tarp for shade and warmth
Paddle to get to shore if you find an island or land somewhere
Mirror to signal someone down. 
 
I'd be afraid of the flare gun either malfunctioning, getting wet, or shooting the raft.

If I were rich enough to own a yacht and spend time on it in the middle of the ocean, I'd have enough money to have more than just rubber boat as my emergency life raft. Plus, one of the five items is obvious; who would leave their snowboard behind?

ClapI'm pretty sure your the first person who has said mirror, which would be the better option than the flare gun, and the best option from the list. being found is your main priority, then surviving. You only have two shots then your screwed. You can signal down someone with a mirror by using the sun and the moon. It may take a while for a ship to find you even after the first flare, then you would have to use your second to help pin point your location when they get closer. If they don't find you, your really screwed.

Alright Ill do another one. Your a new freshman in high school, and you found out the you have a super power over the summer. (What super power would you have?)
You were picked on all through middle school, and have always wished you could get back at those who mistreated you. Now do you come out showing off your new ability to make you popular?(depending on the super power you pick) or do you keep quite about it and get back at those who mistreated you?
oh and you have a gun and a poison capsule in your tooth, just in case.

Yeah, I'm going to skip the pregnancy one, but I love the idea of always having a gun and poison capsule. Might want to rethink keeping that thing in your mouth, but it's a good option for those people who seem intent on killing themselves, regardless of the scenario.

If I was a freshman in high school I would opt for Teen Wolf basketball skills. No need for petty revenge on my tormentors, just wait for the 4th qtr of a close game with the rival school, bust out the wolf skills, win the game and become an instant hero.

I would choose the power of Mysterion from South Park... I just can't die! and whenever i do i wake up and no one remembers i was killed. That way i can get back at the person, and If i die in the process, I would wake up and no one would remember what happened! ahahaha

Pretty sure if you're a bear you can poop any place you choose. Certainly seems more likely than the Pope converting from Catholicism.

Quick question (since I don't know where else to post it) - how do you quote a post that isn't the last one in the thread?

You are a mastermind serial killer who finally gets caught and is imprisoned in a high security prison in Antarctica. You are not to be executed until all your victims have been found and laid to rest by there family's. But to prolong your life you give the answers to there locations in riddles. It takes them 20 years to solve the riddles. Since your so far from everywhere your food has to be brought in in large shipments. To make it easy you only get one of each for the remainder of your life. To much paper work to change it. So you get to choose one type of drink, one main course, and two sides, plus you get one dessert. What would they be?
It doesn't matter about nutritional value to keep you alive,you get like a vitamin or somethin.

bottle of tequila (i'm assumthing you get water to keep you alive, and what else u going to do in prison besides drink), kfc burger meal (with veg, beef burger, chicken wings + nuggets, bread, potato gravy, chips), side 1 mixed sushi (i assume i get wasabi and soy sauce), side 2 seafood soup (incl shark fin), desert creame brule with ice cream.
and YES i can finish all that in 1 meal minus the tequila..

Dessert will be Pistachio ice cream.

It takes them 20 years to solve the riddles. Since your so far from everywhere your food has to be brought in in large shipments. To make it easy you only get one of each for the remainder of your life. To much paper work to change it. So you get to choose one type of drink, one main course, and two sides, plus you get one desert. What would they be?
It doesn't matter about nutritional value to keep you alive,you get like a vitamin or somethin.
 
I'll go with steak, potatoes, scotch, and for dessert a fine cigar.  For the other side I'd have an apple, but instead of eating it I'd stash them in my cell and use them to make scrumpy in my toilet bucket.
 
Scrumpy pairs nicely with fine cigars.
