About this quiz, mine is 76%, so I'm calm.
What about your's?


Hope you enjoy with fun!.

Only 63%…but they don't seem to take boom sticks into account ? evil grin

Personal logo x42brown Supporting Member of TMP29 May 2012 10:56 a.m. PST

63% this seams to be becoming a constant.


VonTed29 May 2012 10:58 a.m. PST


Even better:
You could flatten 119 annoying hipsters with a giant steam roller. That's pretty good.

Twisted Metal Inactive Member29 May 2012 10:59 a.m. PST

55% :( Maybe the zombies will eat the velociraptors …

jpattern229 May 2012 11:00 a.m. PST

So far, 100%.

darthfozzywig Supporting Member of TMP29 May 2012 11:04 a.m. PST

76%, but like Wolfshanza, I note there is no provision for firearms.

Scott Kursk Inactive Member29 May 2012 11:06 a.m. PST

Wolfshanza is right, the poll did not take boomsticks into account. You know, I'm starting to think that these web polls are not nearly as scientific as they lead you to believe.

Dynaman878929 May 2012 11:06 a.m. PST

0% but I have this great, all natural product, that keeps them away by sprinkling it around the peremiter of the house – I know it works since I have never had a Velociraptor in the house.

darthfozzywig Supporting Member of TMP29 May 2012 11:09 a.m. PST

Oh, and regarding that note that grape juice might be velociraptor repellent, I can tell you that is false. Juices of any sort just seem to infuriate raptors.

Poor Kool-ade Man. We'll miss you. :(

Yeah, my first thought was who'd want a Velociraptor proof home? They probably taste like chicken.

79thPA Supporting Member of TMP29 May 2012 12:04 p.m. PST

I'm at 55%. I think plenty of guns and ammo is better than multiple kitchen knives…

Personal logo Endless Grubs Supporting Member of TMP29 May 2012 12:20 p.m. PST

76% but the last velociraptor we had (as a pet) crapped everywhere and ate most of the cat.

Patrick Sexton Supporting Member of TMP29 May 2012 12:54 p.m. PST

76% also.

They probably taste like chicken.

You can even do basic velociraptor proofing tests with chickens, as they are only about half the size of velociraptors. Swans would be closer to the right size.

Proofing for Utahraptor or Deinonychus is another matter entirely. Deinos can reach doorknobs and Utahraptors have enough mass to kick in the door.

82% – and it would be higher, because to get to my house those danged things would have to cross over 200 yards of wide open short cropped grass – an we have plenty of guns and ammunition. Plus, in a pinch we can block off the internal staircase and cut off the outside stair case leaving all windows up about 18 feet from the ground.

let's see a velociraptor is breaking into my 55% house, do I grab a kitchen knife or plug it with a few rounds of 7.62?

T Meier Inactive Member29 May 2012 7:04 p.m. PST

chickens, as they are only about half the size of velociraptors

I thought they were about the size of wild turkeys. That would be two rather big chickens.

Definitely if they are going to bring back anything it should be more impressive, something that would give me an excuse to go and buy a nitro express. I've always wanted a nitro express.

76%…but we live in the states. We may not have a collection of samurai swords, but we have guns!

Grimmnar29 May 2012 11:14 p.m. PST

63% as well. I needs to get my samurai sword collection to up my percentage. :-)


Norman D Landings Inactive Member30 May 2012 4:53 a.m. PST

63%… although if it comes down to knife-fighting a raptor, I'm pretty sure I'd be 100% Bleeped texted.

Tango0130 May 2012 11:50 a.m. PST

Well, it seems that we are pretty save!. (smile).
But agree about guns and ammo.


Narcisista02 Jun 2012 4:34 p.m. PST

76%. Good enough…
