1) You have typed "apocolopse" instead of "apocalypse". That's a huge minus in your credibitily.
2) Why would I want to -survive- The Apocalypse - getting freed from this prison-planet is one of the biggest joys of a possible apocalypse! Finally, not having to endure this completely screwed up world and the horror of living in the physical realm. The whole point of Apocalypse is that there are finally so many ways and possibilities to die, that the likelihood of getting permanently away from this wretched place is very high. To "survive" the Apocalypse would be like wanting to stay in prison although you could be freed.. pure madness! What would anyone have to look forward to, living in a post-apocalyptic world? A high-raise career in the corporate world? A nice mansion of their own in southern France? A good, healthy and joyful life? WHY would anyone want to survive the Apocalypse? Even in the movie "War Games", the professor marks: "We will be spared the horror of survival", and I completely agree. No survival for me, thank you!
3) Don't panic? If I am not allowed to panic in THE APOCALYPSE, when is appropriate, then? I mean, isn't that one of my options? Isn't that a PERFECT time to panic? What could be a better time to panic than in The Apocalypse, for crying out loud? If I am not even allowed to panic then, when am I EVER allowed to panic? Fyck that - if something like THAT happens, I think "panic" is a perfectly healthy, viable and natural option, that everyone should be free to use. Sure, a small office fire might be something not to panic over - but The Apocalypse? Are you seriously saying that it's completely wrong thing to do to panic in The Apocalypse? I would say that's the perfect time to panic! I WANT to panic in The Apocalypse (rather than survive anyway), and you can't stop me from doing so!
