You left out many of the more valuable skills. A carpenter may be much more valuable in a shtf situation than a physist. Welder , Plumber , Hunter, Farming. All these have a great value when they are needed. I would much rather have an Army Medic/ Navy Corpsman with me in a post Katrina/Sandy setting than a microbioligest a mineraloligist , or an IT professional. I am not trying to be mean just practical

too bad 10 is the maximum amount of options, i would like to have 17 or something. i think i have noted it on this site though. no idea why so small max number of options.. mabe i create my own website for this. language skills would be good too, health status and what not. also some categories could have been split at least.


A carpenter is like anyone who knows some mechanics.. and something about what wood does. Wood rots bacteria eats it. have to protect wood from such with something. woode is more easy to eat when wet.. so

My first post here..
By trade.. IT Professional.
Previous trades: Ex military.. Snipe in the army (means- that if it was on a boat or vessel- it was ours to fix- except perhaps the radar. ). So that covers damage control, electricity, HVAC, Engines, transmissions, generators, sewage systems, water purification systems, plumbing, carpentry, ....
Prior- Surveyor. Prior to that- janitor...

One of my best general purpose skills or traits-- troubleshooting...

Although there would be a need for all of the choices in the poll, I agree with everyone in the comments above. You would have to have experienced poeple in a LOT of areas dealing with everyday survival. People that have lived in rough climates and know what to do for the basics on up. With just knowing what a book says to do may not get it if you are out of your comfort zone. I think I would be lost trying to make a radio work though, so what can I say.

I would have to to check the 'none of the above' box if there is one. I know a little, about a lot, and a lot about a little, but only a modicom of knowledge of those listed.

Is this a trick question? Is Homeland Security poling for slave laborers?

I can sneeze, fart and belch at the same time.

Plumbing, carpentry, electrical, HVAC, welding, lite to med. usage. I'm one of those Get r Done kinda guys. If i haven't done it that don't mean i can't do it, its just means its gonna take a little longer before its up and running. One things for sure if it broke an i have to fix it it, most likely it wont break again, as i tend to over build/modify to what it should have been to start with.
I fail at a fix infrequently an usually i know its a vain effort to start with but i usually learn something in the process of failing.
No computer skills hardly at all, hello i don't even know how to post a picture on here???? I got some good game pics, and bowfishing gore to share but I'll have to get my grandson to show me how to do that.
