    Ok so you are going to be one of the last survivors of the Human race...


    Ok so you are going to be one of the last survivors of the Human race, but here a the catch you have to pick 5 Other people to restart the human race here are your options.


    Group 1: Has a Medical Doctor, Supermodel, Clown, Walmart Cashier, and Drug Addict.

    Group 2: Has a Farmer, Computer Programmer, Business Man, Actor, and a Rapist.

    Group 3: Has a Solider, Film Director, A Priest, A Social Media Influencer, and a Cannibal.

    Group 4: Has a Physicist, A Palm Reader, A Trucker, A Banker, and a Serial Killer.

    My Pick is going to be group 2. The reason and logic is because the farmer to me is the most valuable, the Computer Programmer works on tedious task that require problem solving and coming up with solutions. The Business Man because It's important to have a plan for resources from the beginning. And the Rapist because of all this is one of the worst, but benefits outweighs the risks.


    Ok which group would you pick and Why?

    (There are no right or wrong answers, but question is about your reasoning and logic.)

    Why does each group have unevenly portioned skill sets? I bolded the ones that may potentially have a very useful skill or varied skill sets. This poll is silly.

    Depends on what you have in mind for rebooting the human race. What might be considered an advantage in one area might not be so much in another.

    keep in mind you are restarting the human race, whatever that means for you in your mind. Someone is going to have to do the heavy lifting, and what one might assume say for example in my selection Computer Programmer. A Computer Programmer might not be good for anything I imagine. In Fact it could be the biggest disadvantage. The Actor is likely going to be the worker along with the rapist.


    However I do have a Business Man, but how well does that stack up against a A Banker, what about influence or or inspiration Palm Reader vs?

    Either group 1 or 2 because they have the doctor and the farmer. I'll go with group 2 since I think farming will be the most important thing for restarting civilization.

    I agree totally, something to be said about salt of the earth types who have a skill set specifically for growing one of the most important resources. Knowing agriculture is invaluable in my opinion it's not always as easy as sticking seeds in the ground and waiting.

    Knowing weight, textures and grades of soil, being able to estimate crops and growth. Although Group 2 might have some ugly kids, I'd bet they have the best shot to survive.

    You're missing a huge factor - Is all of our existing infrastructure still intact (like did 99.9999% of humanity get abducted by aliens?), or has it been wiped out due to meteor / zombie horde / other random catastrophe? Too many variables left unknown to make an informed choice. Describe the scenario man!

    Could be any one of those scenarios, the idea is to see what you naturally come up with without molesting it. The only restrictions are really what is laid out. Giving more scenario or instruction would be treading too close to manipulating answers rather than seeing what people figure out and deduce on their own.

    Hahaha, well I never specified anything concerning their physical traits outside of the Occupations. But Yeah, I think inspiration is going to be important. I think the Actor could do that for the group I picked.

    The doctor will come in handy. The druggie could be a concern depending on what they're addicted to. I'm not going to lie, if it's something that could put the rest of us in danger I'd "take care" of that person permanently.

    Group 2 has the least amount of people who won't contribute.

    Are you sure, keep in mind their roles as they exist now might change, their skill set might fail in very key and important areas.

    I kind of toyed with the idea of the Anchor or Last pick in each group being UNKNOWN as a rule, but it to bias the results.

    Group 1 has a drug addict. Group 2 has a rapist who could still be productive? Group 3 is worthless with having a Film Director, A Priest, A Social Media Influence, and a Cannibal in their group. Group 4 is just as worthless as group 3 with A Palm Reader, A Trucker, A Banker, and a Serial Killer.

    Soilder could be a natural leader with and introducing civility and order. I thought about making him a cop instead but might seem too authoritarian.

    Soilder could be the back bone leadership, survival and ability to work.

    Just as an example meaning I think all could have their advantages.

    What does this world we are restarting civilization on look like? Does it still have leftover infrastructure, or is it flattened/radioactive/wildlands. Is this a 99.99999% of the human race just disappeared, or was there massive planetary damage that went with it. What climate are we starting in? What does the flora and fauna look like?

    Do we get a chance to get any more information about these guys then their profession? Like Gender, age, and other skill sets, which are rather important in this scenario. I mean many of these professions are so vague as to be useless. Is the Soldier a signals private that washed out of high school, or a multi-talented Special Operations Soldier with two PhDs? What kind of specialist is the doctor? Because honestly you just need general medical knowledge, you don't need a spinal surgeon. And what the hell does the Business Man do?

    So there isn't enough information to choose here, if this is all the information I have, I would take group 2, because it is the only one that seems to have mostly sensible options. Group 4 in particular is silly, because the Truck driver looks like the only person with practical skills in the whole group, and the serial killer seems like the biggest liability, since those are generally actually mentally unstable, with no chance of rehabilitation.

    Odds are extremely against the "group" to begin with. And it'd be a zero chance of repopulation if none are women.
