In a post-apocalyptic world, there are people who thrive and fight for survival, and then there are others who slow the whole pack down - find out which one your zodiac sign is.
Our obsession with the end of the world is evident in the popularity of the apocalyptic film genre with the general public, with a number of terribly written novels mysteriously become overnight best-sellers due to their theories on the end of the world.
Whether it was widespread panic about the world ending in 2012, the incredible interest Yellowstone volcano has generated due to its immensely destructive potential, or the gazillion zombie apocalypse movies, there is no doubt that the world is suffering from apocalypse mania.
The topic intrigues us, too, so we decided to look into the kind of survivors each zodiac sign would make, the roles they would play in a post-apocalyptic scenario, and eventually what they would succumb to.
Instantly takes charge of the people remaining and barks out orders, bullying anyone else who tries to reason with him/her into silence. Makes impulsive decisions and eventually gets everyone killed by opening a door that lets all the water in.
Raids all the grocery stores in the area and hoards loads of food at home, refusing to let anyone in or share his/her supplies. When the water supply eventually runs out, either dies of thirst or reluctantly allows people with water to help themselves to his/her stores, and eventually dies of thirst any way.
Has all the survival skills necessary to make it through an apocalypse, and can easily adapt to a new world order, but doesn't live long enough to demonstrate his/her survival skills. Gets killed in a freak unrelated accident the moment he/she steps outside.
Sets up a safe house and takes in all the orphaned children. Finds a way to get supplies at great personal risk, and makes sure that everyone is equally provided for. Unfortunately if attacked by aliens or zombies, is too terrified to fight back and gets killed.
Is the first to take charge when an Aries isn't around. While Aries may be busy getting things done, Leos are busy setting up their new kingdom and ensuring that they live in the lap of luxury in a secret underground lair. Not afraid to be a part of the action, but gets stung by gigantic mutant bees and dies of an allergic reaction.
Is the reason for the survival of whichever group he/she is in. Always checking perimeters and entranceways, scouting for breaches and danger zones, ensuring that no one does anything to endanger the rest, and eventually gets killed because Aries opened that hatch they weren't supposed to and let all the water in. The lucky ones get to live to a ripe old age and found a new civilization.
Becomes second in command and enjoys the adulation and perks of being in charge. Tries to keep the mood friendly and tells everyone to relax whenever a fight breaks out. Eventually gets trampled by a horde of dinosaurs while trying to convince everyone not to panic.
Turns into a lone ranger who goes from group to group telling them stories about the outside world and teaching them how to hunt rats. Eventually succumbs to radiation sickness due to too much time outdoors after the nuclear holocaust.
The reckless one in the group - always willing to run off to look for resources, especially to places no one would even dream of going to. Usually, the one who is believed to be dead but returns in a helicopter to rescue everyone. Walks too close to the edge of a ravine and falls into a bubbling river of lava below.
Finds a safe place to tide out the apocalypse, and then emerges once the coast is clear. Mocks any Aries or Leo in power for their stupidity and eventually humiliates them into stepping down, before taking over the group. Eventually founds the first post-apocalyptic city and becomes president of the new world order. Overdoses on a new recreational drug and dies.
Responsible for devising new technology to reverse the effects of the apocalyptic event that started it all. Finds a way to kill the alien parasites taking over people's minds, but his/her body rejects the medicine and he/she explodes.
Sits in a corner cowering and whimpering in terror. Is always blubbering and needs to be carried around. Eventually comes face to face with a ten-foot-tall spider and desperately chants "It's not real. It's not real. It's not real. It can't be real," until it becomes all too real and the spider wraps them in silk and slowly sucks their juices out.
Let's hope that none of us live to see the end of the world, or even witness a disaster on the scale of an apocalyptic event. In case you do survive an end of days event, well, you know what your chances of survival are.Disclaimer : This article is for your entertainment / infotainment purposes.
