If the end of the world HAS to happen, what is your ideal apocalypse scenario?
Nobody truly WANTS the world to end now (okay, maybe some do), but if you must live through the apocalypse, which of the many possible scenarios would you most likely thrive in?
The best one will be collision with an asteroid. The planet will change but eventually adapt to new changes. Survivors would have a chance to start better human civilization.
Wait, Wait Wait! The end of the world was supposed to happen last month. Didn't anyone get the memo that we are all dead?! They swore it was going to happen on December 12, 2012.
What ? ! ?
Thrive ? ! ?
You've seen too many Hollywood disaster movies. Do you really think anyone alive right now in the US would thrive if there were an apocalypse? OK, the Minnenites and the Amish, maybe. But I'll admit up front, I'm spoiled, lazy and used to the highest standard of living on the planet. When the apocalypse comes my best scenario is to be killed in the first wave. I don't like being cold, I love my air conditioning and being able to go into a grocery store and pick out delectables from all over the planet. Plowing, herding animals, making my own clothes, no indoor plumping and going to bed when the sun goes down 'cause there's no lights to see by is not a fun way to live.
And, considering the wave of religious hysteria that would roll over most of the survivors I'm thinking, not a good time to be a surviving woman. You know, the religious leaders would find some way to blame it on the women or whoever else they want to get rid of. And since I've never been good at social interactions I'd piss someone off right quick like.
So I don't think I Must survive through the disaster. But if I do I would make the best of it. You can adjust to a lower standard of subsistence living if you have to. But would you want to?

I've heard a lot of speculation about the end of the world upcoming on May 21, 2011 - but.. what if it doesn't happen? What will happen to those people who fervently believe that the end of the world is nigh? Will we see many people jumping off bridges as they struggle with the loss of their...

What will happen on December 21st, 2012?This is the end of the Mayan calendar. Some people think it will be the end of the world while others think it will be the start of big change. What do you think? Will anything change or will it be life as normal?

What if you only had 120 days left to live (2012 Mayan Apocalypse)? How would you spend your days?The Mayan Apocalypse is just 3 months away from today (8-22-12)!, which to me means nothing more than the end of their Long Count Calendar,.... but, thinking along the lines of "Carpe Diem",...

Would humans really be savage and brutal in a post-apocalypse scenario?In most post-apocalyptic scenarios you see, (Mad Max, Fallout, The Road, etc.) people band together in violent groups that live only to kill and raid. Do you think this is realistic or do you think people are more inherently...
