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.

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.

MALES
Football Player - Strength and good DNA most likely.
This is why many women are atracted to muscle, it
usally means good breading
Scientist - This is brains, someone who can see things through if they went to collage 6 to 8 years. Could help with radiation poisioning
Naval Officer - Best of both worlds, brains and he is fit. Naval officers I am assuming young one here, are smart, fit men. This is good for breeding.
College Professor - Brain power for bloodlines, also might have some smarts as to how to re-build.
Musician - Need some sort of art to pass on. a song for people to get behind and focus on and not thier pain and suffering.


FEMALES
High School Cheerleader - Young fit and ready to birth.
Teacher - Brain power to help come up with plans and filter into DNA pool
Architect - Re-building and someone who can see things through
Air Force Pilot - Same as Naval Officer
Housewife - She has new life. This will be born in 3 months then she can do it again. We know she is working up till now. No Guarentee on the others.

The kids, I am sorry to say, bring nothing to the table but chaos, and fear for them. Grant it the wife will fear for her un-born baby, but no one else can see or hear it's cries yet. This could make a big difference in 3 months in the tank

See, who wants to spend 6 months cooked up with 2 8 year olds in a bunker? Have you tried having one in a car let alone in a large room? What're you going to do "heres a doorknob, go amuse yourself"

Atleast some of us we can agree with our choices, but obviously there are a lot of people in the group that are pretty much useless anyway you look at it.

Policeman with Gun, whoopty fuckin doo, the cop has a pistol. Do you really want one guy armed in the bunker for 3 months, 3 months is a long time to be in close quarters with 11 people (10 people plus you) do we really need to factor in a gun. Plus pistols pretty much suck when it comes to protection and hunting.

Truck Driver, yup driving a truck is one hell of a skill for being in a bunker for 3 months. When you do emerge, how the hell do you even know if any trucks actually survived. What about fuel and logistics, pretty much screw this person.

8 year old kids, probably couldn't handle being in the bunker for three months. Emotional and mental trauma will probably make functioning in the new society difficult. Kids are high a lot of work and use up a lot of resources while bringing absolutely nothing to the table. More or less a liability and have a low chance of survival after the bunker opens.

Grandmother, old, senile, past her prime reproduction wise, like the children she has a low rate of survival and really a liability. You've lived a long life granny, why not take one for the team.

Lies. Why else would I carry my handgun? I run .40S&W hollowpoints, and I'd like to see anything take one or two to a vital area and keep coming.

Yeah but after 5 0r 10 shots you got yourself a purdy lookin paperweight. For close range protection they're great, but for combat they pretty much suck balls.

Apply this mofo, if the only (known) surviving bullets are left for your gun are in your clip you really don't have all that much protection, especially since you'll be out of ammo soon.

Not to mention you may not have any bullets left after staying in a bunker with two 8 year olds and a grandmother for 3 months.

ass
