• 'What would you do if the lights went off... and never came back on?' -from the cover of 'Dies the Fire' by S. M. Stirling, over which I gushed here. A note on that review: I've finished the 2nd book, 'The Protector's War;' and in the end, it left me with a much more positive impression than I mentioned in that review. Might as well plan on getting it right away! And impatiently awaiting the next installment, like me. :)
  • This test is based upon the events of the Change, a mysterious pheonomenon that suddenly leaves the planet without electricity, internal combustions engines, and gunpowder. Think for a moment about how dependent your life is on a combination of those. Better yet, go read the book! I'll wait. ...
  • On second thought, take the test now, then go read the book! (Then take the test again?)
  • This is my first test, (though I already scrapped one version!) Feedback/suggestions are welcome! My biggest concern is that I may have been too accurate: I fear almost no one on OKCupid will survive! Let's see whether you'll live to tell future generations about life before the Change...
  • UPDATE: The scoring so far was turning out about how I thought it would, which meant very few survived! Unfortunately, that's not much fun; so I tweaked the scoring slightly, sacrificing a bit of 'realism' for another handful of survivors!
