#2 I need to stay away from animals and tornados. How come no earthquake questions?

#3 15 out of 17. But then, I've already encountered a lot of these. Guess my life is a little more extreme than most. didn't think so before this test.

#4 I didn't think this test gave the best advice. It was like, "you are damned if you do. You are damned if you don't. Which should you do?"

#5 You shouldn't stare down a dog (which I've done successfully many, many times) but I'm supposed to do precisely that with a freakin' shark? This test sucks.

#7 I picked "charge the dog and rip his neck out with your bare teeth" and I'm wrong?? worked for me in real life, dammit

#8 I call BS on this test. I "missed" the aggressive dog question (have both winged pebbles towards the mutt and stared it down and never got bitten. Works with a coyote, too, BTW).

Gouging a shark in the eye or staring it down? Has the guy who came up with this ever seen a shark in the wild, or just at Sea World? C'mon....you can get a good hit in the snout a hell of a lot easier and it's effective.

#9 Sorry, DB, but I'd be more inclined to accept your opinion if your name were Pago Pago Blondie or Kaua'i Blondie....

#10 Hey, GG, got the c-cards (basic & advanced), got the rescue diver certification from NAUI, signed the legal waiver and did the shark dive.

Trust me on the shark punching. ;)

(The "Desert" part refers to my hometown of Phoenix....lots of divers and boaters there. You'd be surprised.)

#11 I agree, this is not realistic, you're bigger and meaner than almost all dogs, attack him, 99 out of 100 will run away. The other one you shoot with your gun (You do carry a gun, don't you)

I once started to rescue a lady menaced by a growling dog, before I could get there she had dropped what she was carrying (Mail) and crouched in a fighting stance facing the dog, he left, and shortly thereafter I saw her come out of her house going to work, wearing a cop uniform.

Sharks, I stay out of the ocean, no problem.

Tornados, I watch to see which way they're going (Seen Many) and none have come my way yet.

Air crashes, follow the stewardess instructions. Pray if you're so inclined, me I watch everything going on, might need to know later.

Me too. 4.5 inch automatic knife helped too.
