Question How do you want to go out?

The bad news: The world is going to end within five years. Nobody will survive. The good news: You get to choose how we go out! What do you choose?

Here is Wikipedia's writeup about various end of the world scenarios: Risks to civilization, humans and planet Earth - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

I chose zombie outbreak -- we might as well have fun killing zombies before we succumb. Otherwise, maybe something quick like an asteroid that nobody sees coming.

Knowing that there is 0 chance of survival, then something like the asteroid hitting earth/get it over with fast.

If there were even a 1% chance of making it, then bring on the zombies or some other monster battle.

I was thinking in the Lions scenario, the world would actually blow up .1 second before the Lions clinched victory. Calvin Johnson would be going up for the winning reception and then *blam* the world explodes.

Hot or Not doesn't need a Trout option.

I went with the Lions' Super Bowl option.

Zombies for sure. However, it would be fun to try and take down a few T-Rex's.

I'm really torn on this one. Lions winning the Super Bowl vs. zombies... Lions winning the Super Bowl vs. zombies... Lions winning the Super Bowl vs. zombies...

It's like Sophie's Choice, this thing.

I think it'd be pretty interesting to be around for the end of days. So I went with asteroid/comet, and actually would hope that I would still be around for some of the resulting chaos once there's no more sunlight and so forth.

How about the worst? Locusts for sure (with famine a close second.) Famine would have to be the most suffering but how scared shitless would you be about the locust attack before it all ended.

That's how it is for Missouri fans; if we ever win it all, it's the end of the world as we know it.

I went with the black hole for this reason -- like James T. Kirk, I don't believe in a no-win scenario. All of the other options pretty much lead to a know conclusion: aliens kill everyone, Jesus judges us, solar flare kills all, etc. With the black hole option, there's a chance of keeping the dream alive because we just don't know what happens inside a black hole.

I might have gone with rip in the space time continuum, but there's too much of a risk that the alternate universe would be worse than what we have now.
