Hello. This message is written as a salute to the universe from the human race.
I don't know how
the world ended, well I should be honest and say it was destroyed!!!
, but the fact remains we are going to be extinct
in a few weeks, when our part of land hits Mars, in 3, maybe 4 weeks...
I always thought I would die an anonymous death with a low cost funeral, but instead, I will die an anonymous death at no cost. But definitely with
I wish I could see it from a far. Maybe I'll cut my rope and let the land crash on Mars. I could be killed by raising debris afterwards, or be
brought into the atmosphere by gravity. Or I could stay in orbit and starve to death...
After thinking about it, I will keep on board and die crashing. It's much safer and faster that way. Or maybe, just maybe, we have been lied about
a planet gravity laws and we will come down as soft as a feather. That would be maddening if I was to remain in orbit while it landed... I wish
we had a cinema with us.
Stan, my neighbor, will marry the cashier from the supermarket the day after tomorrow. I keep teasing him by hoping his honeymoon won't be one!
But I doubt they will ever divorce since we do not have much time left.
Good for them, I say. The Gifford living across the street are scandalized that he weds less than two weeks after his wife's death, but, hey!
Nah! I won't swear in case Aliens, that is nice ones
, find this and read it...
Wow. Talk about the weirdest wedding ever... While swashbuckling with the knife to cut the wedding cake, what's her name from the supermarket cut
Stan's rope and before we could do anything, he was long gone into space!!! We can still hear him damn his new wife as his speed finally stabilized
near us. Well, near enough for us to hear, but not enough to bring him back... Poor Stan. We decided it would be stupid to let the occasion go,
and I agreed to wed Stan's new wife... We had a lot of fun, despite Stan's constant yelling.
I guess I should begin to write the story of how we all got to be sent to Mars, free of charge.
At first, there were official reports with pictures and videos of an Alien arrival. All I know is... not long after, the Earth... ripped apart. But
here's the thing, we now know there was a bunch of lies told to us, humans, about space... First, there is frig-ging BREATHABLE AIR
Space!!! And it's only as cold as fresh summer night!
Anyway, once the Earth ripped, lots and lots of surfaces remained intact. We were fortunate enough to have two supermarkets on ours. We are about
40 plus survivors from an initial hundred.
Many thought they were committing suicide by jumping off the plate of land we stand on. They are now human moons as they follow not far behind.
We... decided to shoot them so they would not starve. The job was done by a retired sniper we have. Alas for poor Stan, we are now out of bullets...
We hear him less yelling, but his moaning is still reaching us. Its kind of a downer and many wish he would shut up now. Mars is getting so big in
front of us now!
As I was saying before, the Earth ripped, and for some reason our part of land managed to be thrown somewhat intact into space in direction of Mars.
At first we didn't know, but it became evident as we got closer to it.
In the first hours, the speed at which we were sent flying got us all stuck to the floor. Gradually, we could sit and raise. In less than a day.
For some 4 months, all was fine. Then small things, like Miss Jodorowsky's dog began floating. We ended up installing a complex set of ropes around
town, but before that, we managed to find out we were resting on a 16 kilometers squared plate of land. Many other debris from Earth are following
us. None showed life.
We were... blessed, some here would say. Two supermarkets, 3 video clubs, one medical clinic, a lake, and 5 gas stations. We found generators and
reunited everyone in the same neighborhood to facilitate water, food and electricity distribution, thanks to our sniper who was also a Major, thus
knowing how to set up camp, and lead.
He's been chosen to be
Ha! Less people are now saying we are blessed as a fire broke out and destroyed on of the supermarkets... The one who contained the freshest meats...
We have cats and dogs who reproduced... We are looking into farming them for the last weeks to have a bit of meat before the end. We thought we
had a weirdo when Mr. Fudd ( we call him that because he looks like Elmer Fudd. Not that a reading Alien would know... ) began planting seeds. Well,
what do you know, it worked! We will have fresh tomatoes and cucumbers this week-end! Ha! My mom would have a fit if she saw me smiling at the idea
of eating a cucumber...
Everybody's angry at me. I messed up when closing the lake cover we built and we lost a third of the lake's water by a small leaking because I
didn't close it correctly. My wife supports me through this. It feels strange to say I have a wife, even after a few months... We get along pretty
fine. I'm surprised we never got to know each other at high school. The planet had to be blown for us to find one another, that's freaky. I'm
glad Stan died. While he was nice, I prefer the company of a woman at night. They are getting a little colder, now.
Lake is now ice. It's like late fall. Everybody feel like crap now. Food is rancid for the most part. We all have seen a hundred times the
movies in the video clubs... Floating in space is great for five minutes but is lousy after a few months... I think I can honestly say I literally
three quarters of the world, now. 30 out of 40...
Mars is so big in the dark sky, now! We think we have less than 24 hours before impact. We all pretend to make peace, but I prey to God my body
parts don't get mixed with some of the morons here...
Yeah. Famous last words of a dying race... Scrw the universe
Aahhh! Can you believe it? Instead of crashing into Mars, we turned a bit around it and are now going into the void! No!... noo...
