World War III has erupted. Twenty-six people have arrived at your bomb shelter that has room for only ten people. You must decide who will be allowed to enter the shelter. These people will stay in the shelter for three months. You must select 5 males and 5 females. When the shelter reopens, they may be the last humans on Earth. The future of the world may depend upon your decisions. Make sure that skills are not duplicated to make the most effective group of 10.

MALES
Historian
College Professor
Janitor
Football Player
Accountant
Shop Teacher
Manager at McDonald’s
8-Year-Old Child
Musician
Scientist
Preacher
Naval Officer
Policeman with Gun


FEMALES
Secretary
High School Cheerleader
Sales Executive
Truck Driver
Teacher
Chef
Artist
8 Year Old Child
Architect
Psychiatrist
Air Force Pilot
Grandma
Housewife (6 months pregnant)


This is a critical thinking assignment for me and thought it would be fun here since i haven't seen a good debate in awhile.

Well, can't have a preacher and an 8yo in the same place, so I decided that we'd need a man of the cloth...

Another tossup was the teacher or the Archetict, but the archetict won... Mainly because we had a college professor in the other group...

Standings:
MALES
Historian - Someone who knows the past, what other reason?
College Professor - He should know his shit, or he'll be voted off the island
Musician - Music is the gateway to the soul
Scientist - if I need some meth, who else do i need to turn to in the group?
Preacher

FEMALES
Secretary - We can get a little "you want a raise" action
High School Cheerleader - She'd be a HS student, thus young and able to be able to have a longer lifeline after the incodent (theoretically)
Chef - We need someone to cook don't we?
Artist - Art, art, and more art! Art of the destruction mainly ...
Architect - We'll probably need to rebuild no?

I picked shop teacher as builder though, cause a shop teacher could build a shelter and not care about esthetics

Yeh, but the shop teacher would build a house and leave out the bathroom; the archetect could teach everyone how everythign SHOULD be

Why? And You can't duplicate skills so if you have one 8 year old you can't have the other. I would pick the 8 year old girl over the boy if anything because the men can continue to reproduce a lot longer than women can, there fore the 8 year old girl when mature can help repopulate more than the boy child can.
Also Remember This could be the satrt of a whole new world we are talking about, so emotion should play no part in it. It should be the best for the human race not just for your feelings.

That is why I would suck at that. Let someone else pick and I'll cry in a corner somewhere.

She has no productive skills in my circle of my new world order...

And I am heartless, the little girl and the pregnent mother have no skills besides being able to be uNFed; women want equality, learn a trade...

Interesting....very interesting.

MALES:

Football player (strong, manual labor, follows orders)
Shop teacher (practical, can build stuff, patient leader)
Musician (creative, people need music)
Scientist (would be necessary for a new world)
Manager @ McDonald's (leader, manangerial skills but without authority complex)

FEMALES:

Artist (creative, people need art)
Housewife (6 months pregnant) (2 lives in 1, motherly role)
Air Force Pilot (navigation and transportation, follows orders)
Architect (knows how to build stuff)
High School Cheerleader (young, fertile, can survive without assistance unlike a child)

My first thought was of survival as opposed to rebuilding a new world. You should think about the group dynamic. Can't have too many leaders or too many followers. Chose those who wouldn't conflict (a preacher and a scientist might not be good, which is more practical?).

Good topic.

(PS, why no doctor?)

If there were 10 people that were going to start over, wouldn't there be severe inbreding after the first few generations? If the human race ended up like Appilacian Hicks, I'd rather they'd die out and the lizard mutants take over.

But anyway, here's who I'd pick:
Males:
Historian, someone's gotta have a record of the past to know where we came from.
Scientist, depending on the field, can keep the sciences and development going and possibly medical stuff if they are trained as such.
Naval Officer, key leadership role, plus has nautical and military skills. Also can tie knots.
Shop Teacher, builder and craftsman, also capable of doing maintainace of the bomb shelter.
Preacher, this is more of a moral choice, faith can get people through tough times and can also be a councelor/confidant for people in the new era.

Females:
High School Cheerleader, what can I say, I have a lolita complex.
Artist, the world needs creativity and badass tribal designs.
Chef, food preperation and sanitation, food = morale.
Housewife with child, 2 lives in one, plus the child will easily adapt and be socialized in the new world. Housewife would be capable of acting as a midwife for future children later down the road.
Teacher, only if she's a hottie or a milf, someone has to be able to teach the younger generations.

There we go, my list of people to restart the world.
