What will destroy us first

Recommended Posts

Whilst a virilent disease could devastate the human population, it would be highly unlikely to wipe us out (all to do with population density distributions and evolutionary genetics). However, if we were to suffer a double whammy of a cataclysmic event (cometary impact, massive volcanic activity, ice age etc.) on top of a devastating pandemic we could be in real trouble.

I've hope that there's some massive orgy at the end of the world with millions of sexy girls. Unfortunately I won't be here to participate....

What if the meteorite brings a bacterial virus with it? One that we have no defence for.

I expect to leave this world within the next 50 years so 5 billion is somewhat out of my reach.

But I wish you all the best of luck :D

The world will not end in 2012 because in my fridge I have a yogurt and it says on the top that it will last until Feb 2013 !

Barman: Did you say the end of the world is coming? Shouldn't we all lay down on the floor or put paper bags over our heads?

Ford Prefect: If you wish.

Barman: Will it help?

Ford Prefect: Not at all.

Can't you escape the Daleks by going upstairs?

The M31 collision will massively disrupt the present system of orbits operating in both galaxies, so starbirth, supernovae, asteroids and comets... wheeee!!

It's much simpler than any of the suggestions:

Bureaucracy.

Ultimately, as paperwork breeds paperwork, we will pass a paperwork event horizon (once we transit the Parkinson radius (after C. Northcote Parkinson)), and everything collapses into a black hole. I have done several pasta - anti-pasta collision experiments which all lead to the same conclusion:

WE ARE DOOMED.

by Bureaucracy.

Came across this quote from

An Apollo astronaut after seeing the earth from the moon

❝You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch.’ ❞

— Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell
