‘Congratulations! Your body is 42% effective as a human shield.’

The good news, however, is that I have a 56% chance of surviving a zombie attack.

[which is probably directly related to the ‘human shield’ inadequacy problem].....;]

Pffft! I'd make a lousy shield. I'm allergic to death.

My body would be 15% effective... considering that I’ve never met any adult that weighs less than me and does not have an eating disorder, I’m not surprised at all.

Is it good or bad if you’ve never broken a bone?

Lol.

I love this question:

Do you have any experience playing high-impact sports, such as american football or rugby?

When you’re small, any impact is high impact (if you’ve ever leapt for a frisbee while playing ultimate and found yourself a considerable distance away on the ground, with the guy who caught the Frisbee asking if you’re OK, you know what I mean.)

They do if they wear body armor and take hostages first.
