In researching these quizzes, I tried to find info from experts who seemed to know what they were talking about, as opposed to the other kind. And I aimed to get multiple confirmations of the facts I’ve included.

Sources I used included Cresson Kearny’s Nuclear Survival Skills, The U.S. Army Survival Manual, The Red Cross, many guides to biological, chemical, natural, and nuclear disasters, many survival and first aid guidebooks, and interviews with experts.

    FEMA: Flood Safety Guidelines says this about driving in floods:

    • Do not drive into flooded areas.
    • If floodwaters rise around your car, abandon the car and move to higher ground if you can do so safely. You and the vehicle can be quickly swept away.
    • Six inches of water will reach the bottom of most passenger cars causing loss of control and possible stalling.
    • A foot of water will float many vehicles.
    • Two feet of rushing water can carry away most vehicles including sport utility vehicles (SUV’s) and pickup trucks.

    Flash Flood Survival Tips:

    Be aware that flash flooding can occur. If there is any possibility of a flash flood, move immediately to higher ground. Do not wait for instructions to move.

    Be aware of streams, drainage channels, canyons, and other areas known to flood suddenly. Flash floods can occur in these areas with or without such typical warnings as rain clouds or heavy rain.

      After the quiz, read this article by Shane Connor to liberate yourself from the deadly myths of nuclear disaster un-survivability.

      “Most people think that if nukes go off, then everybody is going to die, or will wish they had. That’s why you hear such absurd comments as: “If it happens, I hope I’m at ground zero and go quickly.”

      “Most will survive the initial blasts because they won’t be close enough to any “ground zero,” and that is very good news. Unfortunately, few people will be prepared to survive the coming radioactive fallout, which will eventually kill many times more than the blast.”

      “Today, lacking any meaningful Civil Defense program, millions of American families continue to be at risk and could perish needlessly for lack of essential knowledge that used to be taught at the grade school level.”

        Worth Reading: Nuclear Terrorism FAQ

        Wikipedia says, “Terrorism is the systematic use of violent terror as a means of coercion.”

        Under Wiki’s “Definition of Terrorism” (terror attack) there is further comment:

        The definition of terrorism has proved controversial. Various legal systems and government agencies use different definitions of terrorism in their national legislation. Moreover, the international community has been slow to formulate a universally agreed, legally binding definition of this crime. These difficulties arise from the fact that the term “terrorism” is politically and emotionally charged.

        Under Wiki’s “Pejorative use” [of terrorism] is an even more revealing comment:

        The terms “terrorism” and “terrorist” (someone who engages in terrorism) carry strong negative connotations.[44] These terms are often used as political labels, to condemn violence or the threat of violence by certain actors as immoral, indiscriminate, unjustified or to condemn an entire segment of a population.

        “‘One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter.’ This is grossly misleading. It assesses the validity of the cause when terrorism is an act. One can have a perfectly beautiful cause and yet if one commits terrorist acts, it is terrorism regardless.” — Adrian Humphreys
