Just a question that floated through my mind whist watching a rather average movie called"contagion " today.
If you woke up and your loved ones were all dead , your whole neighborhood was dead, and then you realised the wholeworld was dead except you.
How long before you killed yourself?
Would you go to the bank , get all the cash, and have a bath in it, you know indulge yourself....then kill yourself.
Would you spend the rest of your life burying the dead?
Or would you in almost immediate despair throw yourself over a bridge?
I honestly think I would do all the things first..ie take my clothes off and just walk naked throughout the cities, collect a hundred milllion dollars in notes ect, drive a ferrari, a lamborghini, a porsche.
Ride a different harley every day for a week or so.
I don't know , the grief would be almost unbearable, but the prospects enticing.
How long would you go?

I would spend the rest of my life building a huge momement to human existence. I would go world wide and gather all the info I could and compile it near the momument for anything in the future to find.

Forever and ever and ever and ever and.... ah well you get the point. I like me some solitude. If anyone has some acreage they'd like to give me then shoot me a PM and we'll work it out


I would start by being pretty devastated by the loss of all my loved ones, and would venture out into the woods to get away from the impending smell, and infestation of scavengers and insects. I would make a priority of gathering equipment to build a nice bug-proof home for the next year or so, since their population would no-doubt skyrocket before dying of starvation shortly thereafter.

After that I'd probably live George-of-the-Jungle style and build myself a nice tree-mansion, and live off the earth.

But in all actuality I would probably be eaten by wolves before I got three steps in the wilderness, or would starve cause I'm not skilled at determining edible plants from poisonous ones, or perhaps I would cut myself accidentally while building a shelter and die from infection.

To answer your question a bit more accurately; I don't think I'd last very long, but I'm sure I'd have a blast doing all the things that have heretofore been considered against the law, such as jaywalking, and throwing rocks at buildings.

I would set out on an adventure to somewhere tropical that has a pre-existing mansion in it that runs on Wind/solar energy.

I'd do the same thing right up until the gun shop. I'd go there but that would probably be my final destination. Now, if I could just have one girl with my in the empty world, I'd be happy to stay awhile. Boring as hell by myself. Rather off dead.

Well, the punishment of being the only person alive and being immortal to live alone for the rest of eternity would be ok as long as there were other living things around to talk to. I wouldn't like loosing all my love ones at all but would not take my life. If I was stuck in that situation I would suffer through it. I would also think god was punishing me for something I did.

To build something that would last, that would be difficult. It would need to be really big, like say, oh I don't know, perhaps a big Pyramid!!

As long as I'm not like the guy in an old Twilight Zone episode who is the last man left ..and he LOVES books...and happens to find himself at the Library of Congress outside and surrounded by the love of his life. All the time to read them and nothing to distract .....then he drops and breaks his glasses reaching for the first book.

Seriously? Travel is the first priority. Must get myself a Ferrari Testarossa for that running around locally...you know, those are such a killer on fuel mileage. Then a Bobtail truck for those long drives. 400 gallons and a bed in back comes in handy without a trailer to kill mileage there.
Then it's off to teach myself how to fly...and plot plenty of airports by driving in advance to insure fuel is there! Oh, the devil is in the details, isn't it?

Then...it's a world tour. I'll start on the West Coast and work east ... Lets see.. I've always wanted to see the facility in the mountain above Los Angeles.... then Edwards ...and Area 51.
(Travel might get MUCH easier after that stop) I'll probably have my fill of 'truth' by then so heck... Grand Canyon, Rushmore (Gotta check for that vault!
) and whatever looks nifty across to New York. Just think of me as the last explorer. Yup...Someone's gotta check it all!

You would need to find a way to fix the gas. That corn gas would all be bad in six months to a year.

Until I got bored at six flags.

I would blow stuff up until I got bored then find something else to do. Race tracks seem appealing. Fly fighter aircraft. Visit area 51.

You would need to get clear of the cities for about ten years or so. In the meantime, find somewhere idyllic. A huge lake, great fishing and hunting.

I don't know that i would off myself, id just run down to the nearest nuke bunker,
set up shop there, most of the big ones are equipped with everything you would
need to survive for long enough to set up cultivation, then i would probably try
to find ways to entertain myself, and if i ever did decide to off myself, i would
do so by standing in the exact middle of the country and spelling out LOL with
nukes, go out with a bang.

Why would you collect money if you could just do everything for free.

After I got done with six flags, I'd probably go to NASA or some other space station and try to contact the iss. If they were all dead too, then I'd get some food, get on my rocket ship, and fly away.

Maybe you could also harvest a dead persons reproductive material and put it in a petri dish and see what grows.

I would gain knowledge. As much as I could. Read, read and read some more. You would have to learn to survive without electricity and most modern stuff as there would be no one running it. So you would have to learn to survive all over again. Death is not on the list of things for me to do (I assume it will eventually happen but its still not on my list) so I would not kill myself. I would learn to communicate with the animals if I could too.

As it is, I live a pretty solitary life anyway. I'm a loner by nature. So, if one day, I woke up to find that everyone is either dead or has been 'spirited away' and I am the only human left (assuming animals and such are still alive) alive on planet Earth, it would just be another day in a sense. I don't think I would off myself right there on the spot after coming to this realization. I could see myself gathering food and supplies from wherever I could, and set out on a journey across the country first, see whatever I see. I could walk for awhile, then drive a car unrestricted by "laws" or regard for anyone elses safety at high speeds, maybe a bike, hell, maybe a pogo stick. I could see myself taking in a dog or two for companionship and maybe some extra protection (I would also be armed) from 'wilder' life. When I've had my fill of my native country, then comes something I've always fantasized about doing if I had super/cosmic powers or otherwise unrestricted means of doing so: raid the Vatican Library. I've always wanted to see for sure what they were hiding from us. Who's gonna stop me? If by any chance, I came across any information that's truly 'out of this world', there could be a chance I could leave this planet once and for all for a planet I hadn't grown tired of, even before Earths "great extinction". I might possibly even come across some way to bring the dead back to life, of which I would do even if I were to leave the planet. Have another chance "on me" human population. What would I care, I'm outta here!
