No, not destroying everything. Just pushing the reset button. And yes, petty existence. Working endlessly at a job that deep down most know it's
totally with out purpose only to pay bills and fund global terror through taxes and what not. Push the reset button and people will find a purpose
again. We would actually have to be productive to live. Much more fulfilling than mas producing radio knobs 12 hours a day and lining pockets of the
corrupt. It would also bring back natural selection to the human race again. We desperately need that.

No thanks. Do you realise how many people would die? Not to mention the odds are better than good you and people you know would be in that group of
people 'naturally selected against.' Sure you can pretend you could survive the social and environmental disaster that would follow; but anything
that kills the national power grid, takes out the ability for the nuke plants to cool themselves too. So rather than 3 ongoing meltdowns, in Japan,
you could add in every single nuclear plant that was online when the power grid dropped. 3 days of fuel for what ever generators that survived & boom,
all the plants likely go up like Fukushima.
While the nearest Nuke plant that could likely affect me is in Nevada, I'd still end up having to worry about it.
Then there is places like the CDC that study bio threats, not to mention the government's undisclosed labs, and research labs across the nation. Loss
of containment there would likely occur as well. Hello 'Captain Trips!'
Add in the lack of clean water supplies and the dead that no one can bury and your chances of survival drop even further.
Yes preppers and the like off, in their bunkers might have a better chance, if they can get to their bunkers. It is not like the sun is going to give
them more than 50 hours or so to get out, if the storms didn't fry the power grid with an emp like effect well before then.
But such an event is likely to impact those bunkered up people too. After all, even with 5 years of food in their bunker, do they have that much water
too? What happens when they step out to start society again? All that unseen rad waste and fall out will still be there.
Not to mention if anyone in those bunkers has a medical condition requiring medicine daily, insulin and the like; they'd have what 6-8 months if they
are lucky to live?
Then there is the question of ability, do you know what crops will grow in your area? How will you plant them? Do you have enough food to last while
the crops grow? Will you be competing with everyone else for the live game in your area? How will you protect your crops from the radiation too?
I don't want to be the one to bust your bubble, or pipe dream; but I suspect you'd rather have the crap job of making radio buttons and not starving
to death or suffering from radiation poisoning and or disease. Or watching people you know and love die from all of that.
