... chained to a bunk bed with a Velociraptor?

I would last 44 seconds. Shocked

47 seconds.

But the test doesn't specify whether the velociraptor is hungry or mad or not. If the velociraptor were calm and not hungry, I bet you could survive a lot longer.

Umm....35 seconds?

All it would have to do is slurp up Squee's splatness... Sad

Wait ... if Squee is a splat, how did Squee get chained to the bunk bed in the first place ...?

Inquiring minds want to know!

54 seconds!

Maybe Squee was in a jar that was chained to the bunkbed?

51 seconds. Though it doesn't specify whether that's every time, or just the first time. Might get better at it after a while, or the raptor might just corpse camp.

Of course, eventually the raptor would starve, 'cause when you put yourself back together with the original bits, it ends up having not eaten anything.

But that's enough time to die a few thousand times...

1 minute 6 seconds.

Quite impressed with myself actually, considering my complete lack of strength at all!

I'd still die though.

I took that test once and always clicked the answers which I expected to be the "perfect" ones (instead of those that were appropriate for myself).

That yielded a result of 1m 44s.

I did the same thing JackAce, but my answer was 1 min 60 seconds.

Whoah! you almost made it two minutes... Razz

Now I'm wondering which of my answers were sub-optimal... Confused

Question one I answered: I wrestled in college

2: Very tall (6'3 or taller)

3: More than a foot.

4: No

5: Punch him in his raptor man area.

6: Yes I've had years of training.

7: Yes

8: The top bunk

9: Yes

10: Take the arm back and beat the raptor with it.

And it said I would last 1 min 60 seconds. Of course, many of those are a lie.

I received a rather suspect result. Supposedly, 1 minute 35 seconds. I kind of doubt that it takes into account the reaction speed of a raptor is probably a thousand times that of a human. They're natural hunters, we're foragers/scavengers. Generally speaking, they're going to be able to make much faster reaction to change than we are.

Jus' sayin'..
