I've had this thought ever since I was a child and we were given Empty World to read in our English class.

What would you do if you were the only person left alive?

As a teenager, I used to think I would take a nice car, break into a nice house, get all the nice food and watch good movies forever. As recently as last week, I had the same discussion with a colleague where I professed I would try to "get" all the information that had been kept from me by the government, by breaking into Government offices, trying to get to the Vatican library, Pentagon etc.

But now I sit and think about it, would I?

Would there be anything (knowing there was no one else out there to like, to love, to hate, to talk to) that would make you want to "carry on" until nature took its course and you died?

Being the last person on earth.What benifit would any accomplishment be?
If you knew all the secrets,who would you tell? If you had the fastest car,who else but you would know?
I would be lonely,and I would probably end it all out of sheer dispair.

thats pretty sad
i'd be entertained for years
lots of time to read

imagine exploring the Vatican's secret archives or Area51?
Heck I'd take one of the man made UFO's and go explore the universe.
I wouldnt be lonely for long

Kill myself so the earth can be rid of the useless human species...the plants would shut themselves down on their own.....

I would probably become an Arkansan and find me a couple of good looking sheep.



Seriously, I would find me a talking parrot so at least I wouldn't go crazy talking to myself.




My apologies to anybody from Arkansas if offended by my joke.

My experience tells me that if this was to occur, that those I have met in the past would find or already know a way to populate selected areas of the earth with another species or something inbetween. The biblical story was of a controlled area and sanctuary. Probably than a new genesis?

With the past stories of suggested visitors from other worlds, no doubt they would be very interested in a piece as well, if not already.

Apparently it would seem that we already had our chance and blew it. That's not my opinion since it also appears we've been manipulated and dumbed down.

I seriously doubt I would be alone in that respect.

If all the people were gone, I'd guess then it'd be easier to weed out the aliens.

I'd be lonely, definately. But, on a lighter note, it wouldn't be as bad as being stuck on an island. With so much to occupy myself with, I'd be alright for a little while.

I probably would actually make some sort of effort to find information on all that was kept from us. Maybe I wouldn't have anybody to tell but at least I would be able to possibly find a better understanding of how I came to be the only person left. Just because the people have disappeared, doesn't mean I have nothing to live for.

I imagine before long I'd probably tap into a much deeper spirituality than I had up to that point. Lots of meditation and contemplation.

I can only imagine that at some point I'd find a way into an area 51 type installation if I could. Find out if we do indeed have the capability interplanetary travel, perhaps if so I would try to contact another planet if able. If I can and I can communicate with another planet, I would likely request assitance.

In the scenario that we actually do not have contact with other planets, I like to believe I would take the years of reading and understanding to and learning to either build a craft capable of interstellar travel, or learn how to fly the ones we have should they exist. Then I'd leave, I wouldn't worry about shutting down plants or anything because they'll do that on their own. By the time I'd be able to leave, if that would even be possible, nature would have taken the planet back like in one of those Discovery Channel specials. I'd stock up on as much food, water, and general survival supplies as I possibly could. To survive as long as possible, hopefully i'd be able to pull it off for a long time. Then I'd explore. This planet has nothing left for me after awhile so I may as well go see the rest.

It'd be nice if that were possible. But that's kind of the point of this excersize right? Use our imaginations and all that.

I'd probably learn to farm too.

watch thetruestory "into the wild" the lead character a free spirit named chris mccandless heads into the alaskan bush with a.22 rifle and a fishing rod and survives awhile but finally writes in his journal before dying,(paraphrasing):"hapiness is nothing unless its shared "...
things don't make you happy...

As long as there were animals...... I would never be lonely or find myself not wanting to live! And plants... oh my obsession with plants!

Plants and animals = plenty reason for happiness!

I would post a thread about it on ATS and then wonder why I am getting no responses.

OMG, the last person on Earth? Why, I would probably die within a week. Who would give me a job? Who would give me a bailout? Who would grow my food for me? Gosh, who would cook it for me? Who would give me credit to live beyond my means upon? Who would cloth me? Who would make electricity for me? Who would be my socialist leader? Who would take care of me? Who would wipe my butt for me? Who would provide me with all my necessary rights and entitlement? OMG, I'm scared. You're freaking me out. Oh no, I couldn't handle it man.



Oh, I'd have one heck of a party, that's for sure.

I would probably gather as much porn as I could, and go live in a mansion with monkeys and lemurs.

My answer really depends on the specifics of the event causing me to be the last man on Earth.

If I woke up one day to empty streets, empty buildings, I would have a desire to find out what happened. Would I really believe I was the last one? I'd probably spend the first year or so looking for other humans. Eventually I'd have to set up a homestead of sorts to provide food, shelter, and other such necessities of life as the infrastructures fell into disrepair.

How long would the power stay on? Surely the internet would be down in a week. I could find nonperishable food supplies (at military surplus stores etc) but I'd quickly long for real food.
