Title: Why? WHY? WHYYYYYYYYYY???
Post by: Dodom on June 13, 2011, 05:04:48 pm
You tried to fight, you tried to run, you tried to hide. You tried everything, but it wasn't enough. You're curled up in a corner, surrounded by zombies, you may or may not still have a weapon, it doesn't really matter at that point. The blood loss makes you worthless, you can barely see and forget about standing. At least it's making you numb enough not to feel too much pain. You're not in shock yet, so you can still think, and with great frustration, you realise that the gaping bite wound on your arm was no twisted whim of Fortune; while chance certainly did not favour you today, this would not have happened if not for your own weakness. Everything is getting darker now, while the zombies are getting closer. Death. Your last thought is for cursing yourself, because deep down inside you knew it would end like this.

In this scenario, you die, no other option. What, of your weaknesses, is the most likely to have gotten you into such a situation? Bad luck alone could do the trick, but lets say you did fail at some point. Which point will it be?

(If you think you have no such weakness at all, don't bother posting. :P )

_______________________________________
Dodom's deadly weakness:
My not quite average sense of observation would probably kill me first. I'd be all succesfully fighting off/escaping zombies, and then get bit by one I didn't notice. It's not so bad that I wouldn't have a chance to survive, but it's the most likely way it would go if I did die.
Then there's the non-existent social skills, but dealing with fellow survivors only becomes an issue after a while, plenty of time to be eaten before.

'Would have trusted someone I shouldn't have. They probably either abandoned me or actually threw me to the zeds.

Unbelievable soul-crushing pessimism. More than four show up and I'm crying and eating a gun.

Probably a lack of preparation. I am often too much of an optimist. In the early day's I would probably believe that the situation was under control rather than bunking down or getting ready for the probably inevitable end of the world as we know it. Then if I survived the initial outbreak, I would probably end up in this situation because I was desperately trying to find everyone I care about to make sure they were safe, rather than looking after myself.

Probably because I'm too stuck on the thought of what the zeds were before they were cannibal corpses.
"No! aunty! why?!" nom nom nom on me.

Chances are it would be trying to save someone. Ie I see them from the safety of my barricaded home but I rush out regardless of the horde of zombies to try to help them. Either that or it would be while clearing out a house which is probably the most dangerous situation you can put yourself in during a zombie outbreak.

Trying to use impractical weapons, or just fucking around too much in general....  :slowpoke:

Diabetes  :slowpoke:

Otherwise, I'm way too nice. I wouldn't be able to let someone die or leave them behind, and if I was just walking along and I heard a scream for help or something, I wouldn't be able to just shrug it off and go "every man for himself," I'd go out there and try to help.

Lack of preparedness, hands down.

You can always rely on Dodom for unabashed optimism and cheerful posts  :P

For me it would probably carelessness.  I'll have done something 100 times before: checked the grounds, gone to the same place for supplies (firewood, whatever), gone from point A to point B, etc.   Then I'd loose focus, get careless just once, but once is all it takes.  Didn't watch my step, check a corner, close a door, something like that.

Asthma. >.>

My asthma has gotten a lot better over the years, and sometimes when my asthma is bothering me I can even just wait it out for a couple hours and it'll eventually go away without using an inhaler. Every now and then though I do have an asthma attack so bad in which I need medicine, and even with medicine I feel like I could pass out if I don't make a conscious effort to resist it.

Yep. Overconfidence too, probably.

have you considered using marijuana for the asthma? I know it sounds bogus and your probably thinking i'm a ridiculous pot head, but I used to have VERY bad asthma, I couldn't even catch a bus if I wanted too, but I started a reluctant treatment about a year ago, I did it for about half a year or so.  I don't use it anymore because I have much better lung function now.  I can even hike now. Maybe you should talk to your doctor about it, see if it can help you.

at least now I know i'll die because i'm a major sap and not because breathing was too hard.

Very poor physical condition. That's why I have always slower friends around who, if someone has to go, will go first ^^

For me it would be a couple of reasons.

Trying to help people.
Putting the trust in the wrong people.
Overconfidence would probably be my biggest flaw, I would accidentally neglect to do something and then a zombie would show up and I won't be ready.
Maybe even not knowing that the apocalypse had happened quick enough.

im bad at making quick decisions. if you give me 5 minutes to think, im quite smart. but on a seconds notice? if im given two good options, ill choose the third, bad, one;/ this also makes me terrible at wining arguments, which is annoying.

For me it would be for trying to help other people somehow. That or being betrayed by somebody.

Its a lose lose situation when you are being betrayed. Either you betray them first and if you dont kill them then they will certainly come back to kill you or you think everything is fine and they stab you in the back. Why is being evil so much easier than being good?

I know its gonna be my best friend who does it. He ALWAYS betrays me in video games, especially Left 4 Dead...

Probably opting to go alone when travelling in a group does have its benefits. You who are alone in the beginning are the only one looking out for you and I am confident we will see robbers and such very quickly in such a situation. If your prepared to the max, but you get strongarmed by 6 punks with rusty pistols that might not fire but might actually fire your still as fucked as the guy who did shit all and booked it.
