I could survive for 1 minute, 13 seconds chained to a bunk bed with a velociraptor

Like many children, I was sometimes scared of monsters lurking in the closet or under the bed when I was young. What I would have done if one came after me, I don’t know, but thankfully the issue never came up.

A new online quiz gives me some idea how I would fare in such a situation, though. Placing you in the unenviable place of being chained to a bunkbed with a Velociraptor, the quiz isn’t about whether you could defeat the raptor, but how long you could last against your toothy adversary. Apparently I would barely survive long enough to call for help; how would you fare?

And as an aside, I hope this doesn’t inspire a reality TV show…
