This is the forum to get to know your fellow pilots and the ONLY place to talk about everything else not really relevant to sci-fi movies, including your personal loves and interests. A true pilot doesn't discuss these issues while on duty.

How would YOU want it to end?

Imagine the whole world coming to an end, either due to some cataclysmic disturbance or to nuclear weapons.

OR...Imagine the human race continuing on, being foolish, doing more harm to the planet than has been done already, eventually going out with a whimper rather than an enormous disturbance.

How would you like to see us go? You don't necessarily have to pick from the options I've given, it's more of a general question of how you would like it all to end. There's also the fact that we (That is, the current inhabitants of the planet) may not see the end of the Earth. Don't let this keep you from answering the question. You do not have to be around when the end happens!

Also, if you choose the third option on the poll, I would appreciate a reply as well as an explanation.

I want it to end, when I shred this frail human form and ressume my true form as diablo, and destroy all you puny mortals,

failing that... with something totally ironic.

Yup. I'd sure like to see something ironic. By all means I'd like the earth to end.

But by all means not now.

For example, for all of you who have read the hitchhikers guide, I'd definitely like the ending of the planet that sent all of it's telephone sanitizers away only to be wiped out by a telephone virus/disease/something (can't remember exactly).

I'd like the world to end in some way that would make me laugh, is all.

Zombie outbreak, as seen in Romero's films.

I think I'd have the best chance of surviving.

Blown up by aliens who want to build an interstellar highway and find that we are in the way.

If not, then I'll settle for zombie outbreak.

Zombie outbreak? To hell with that. Being eaten hurts. And its not like you die quick either. Just laying there, hearing your tortured screams mixed with the sounds of your flesh being stripped from the bones. Not for me. I like the earth being stalingrad. Hey, that would mean we win to. Awesome.

Re: How do YOU want it to end?

In the words of Woody Allen, 'I don't want to achieve immortality through my work, I want to achieve it through not dying.'

I WANT the human race to last forever and soar above our pathetic current state and crush the entire universe under our iron fist of megalomanic domination.

But the reality of the situation ia that we'll all be wiped out by our own governments stupidity and near-sightedness. All I can hope for is that it doesn't happen in my lifetime, and that I don't have kids it'll happen to.

What is it with you people? Are you afraid of dying?

And why should it end?

You make it sound like being held down by a group of zombies and eviscerated isn't cool.

Re: How do YOU want it to end?

In other words, you are afraid? If you seriously want to die soon, and want an End of The World, then you feel uncomfortable and afraid. Am I right?


Oh, yeah, I like zombies as much as everyone else, as long as we win in the end. (Not The End, I mean the end. Of the zombie outbreak.)

Re: How do YOU want it to end?

Bare with it. As time passes...new opportunities arise

As for the end of the world...I voted for something but I can't remember what so I guess I'll have to make something up...

Erm, we should just wake up one day, and there's nothing there...no explanation, no nothing.
