It wont be a terrorist attack. Terrorists are getting less and less effective at trying to do anything that really scares people into not living their
lives. Hell they can kidnap someone and videotape their execution, it just doesn't faze as many people as they'd like.
Financial meltdown maybe, but I have a feeling people are a little bit smarter than that. Media circuses will still perform, but thats only because
they need good ratings. If the stock market crashes, I'll turn off the damn TV and take a walk.
I believe that the human species is too damn scared of actually using a nuclear weapon now. Hence it is now just that, a scare tactic. Say you have
the capability and you do not have to prove it. People listen to you.
The next great worldwide emergency will be either a natural disaster specifically involving higher than imaginable flood waters, possibly coupled with
an epidemic of a disease that no one can cure, or the cure cannot reach because the floods have knocked out all communication and travel.
It may not be original, but seeing how floods happen every year, why not it happen bigger than usual? If such a disaster were to occur in an area
where I am affected, I'd let my instincts lead the way. I do not think I am prepared to survive right now, but I damn well will be when it happens.
