Post What skills do you bring to the post-apocalypse?
for instance:
I am qualified to operate heavy equipment, I can drive anything with wheels, I can tie knots, I can repair electrical devices, I can operate and repair many firearms, I can fight (with a knife and without), I can run for half an hour+, and probably some other stuff

note: your answers will definitely not be recorded, sorted, ranked, and filed. nope.

I am fairly good with bows, though :>

Well, I can go without food for extended periods of time with very few negative effects. You could qualify that as a post-apocalyptic skill.

I'm good at keeping the morale up.

Does that count?

I will ensure not one person is able to feel good enough about themselves to even consider taking a leadership role.

Democracy.

I can drive, I can use pistols/shotguns/semi-automatic rifles fairly well (ie hit stuff, know how to load and operate most firearms, but no skills in maintenance), I can cook pretty well even with limited resources so long as I have a source of heat, I'm decent at fixing stuff (nothing "technical" though, so anything that uses electric power = nope) and I'm in pretty good physical shape- I can bench 200+ lbs and run for 3 miles without stopping (on average- lower if inclement weather and difficult terrain, higher if "ideal" conditions) I guess I'll put up "can fight," too, but I'm not pretending to be like "LOL HARDKORE STREETFIGHTER / MARTIAL ARTS EXPURT" or anything: it's just that I'm big, can hit hard, and know- at least in theory if not so much in practice- a lot of the basics of hand-to-hand combat.

Essentially, I can pull my own weight and can do a little in a lot of areas. Decently more useful than the average Joe, in other words.

Post Re: What skills do you bring to the post-apocalypse?
My skills do not reside in physical ability. I am able to walk long distances but not run them, and my fighting ability is sub-par. In a situation that requires leadership, I work best as a "right-hand-man", because although I lack the strength to prove myself as a leader, I can converse well and get points across easily. I'm good with people and getting them on-side with a sensible discussion, recruiting, I guess. If you need a group of idiots kept in line without laying a finger on them, you'll want me on hand. Every point a leader makes needs to be outlined and repeated for clarity, broken down into simple points. I'm not afraid to question a leader, but will always respect their final decision. Some people have the skills but can't convey their thoughts to a group, and I feel that my true ability is doing that for them.

I would be pretty useless. I mean, I know some very basic survival things, and I'm pretty good at like, lifting things.
But besides that?
Dead weight.

I can shoot and load most guns fairly accurately, shoot a bow well, and cook. Not that that would help any of you. The second apocalypse comes, I'm putting on a hockey mask and changing my name to Lord Humongous.

I laughed my ♥♥♥♥ ass of in a couple of seconds when I read this.



Also, I'd like to team up with Roast. He seems very competent as an apocaliptic survivor with a group of random survivors.
