There'll still be internet porn, right?

If there's internet: there will be porn. I kinda think it's a foundational rule.

Of course... there's something to be said for the classics... there's still quite a bit of printed material out there. Wink


Think of all those abandoned sex shops. Shocking

1st thing -- I 'd hit the hobby shop and pick up some bigassed servos and a good radio system -- then head over to the airport.....

It'd be a gas to fly a full scale RC.....

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

All the decaying bodies would suck big time. I'd declare myself the Grand PoohBah, then round up as many kitties as I can. Train them to be my army against the horde of the rat king.

George R. Stewart's "Earth Abides" (1949) is at the very top of the "post apocalyptic fiction" genre for me, in part because its attempt at realism. Great book.

I also love the melancholy poetry of Ray Bradbury's little-known story, "The Vacation," in "A Medicine for Melancholy" and "The Stories of Ray Bradbury." About the last family traveling the earth, looking for survivors.

God does not work in mysterious ways — he works in ways that are indistinguishable from his non-existence.

And if it gets out of range, you don't need to bother retrieving it.

RE: What would you do if you were alone?
As much as I enjoy solitude as sort of a reboot switch for my mind, even I need at least a couple crazy people like myself to chat with from time to time. I'd take my time getting myself set up, for sure. I'd grab my own personal arsenal, stockpile a bunch of ammo, spare guns, spare gun parts, and other shit from my unit's armory in multiple hidden fallback locations, grab a couple fuel tankers and stash them somewhere inconspicuous after I camouflage the shit out of them, make sure I treat the fuel with stabilizers so it doesn't go bad in a matter of months (they never seem to account for that in apocalyptic movies for some reason), stockpile non perishable food but rely as much on hunting/foraging as possible to make it last, and once I'm good and ready I'd start methodically searching for other survivors.

And I'd find myself a cat or something that would stay at home, and a dog that could come with me.

RE: What would you do if you were alone?
I'd rather not live without power... So I'd be rounding up tanks of fuel and stabiliser, wiring up solar and wind farms... And I guess I'd find a suitable house and keep it well stocked, armoured, and insulated. I imagine that most animals would still fear the last human, so it would probably be a fairly safe life, beyond food poisonings and illness.

RE: What would you do if you were alone?
This is really too depressing to think about.

Eventually everything I'd really need to survive would break down.

Then I probably would.

Then with my luck I'd come across someone like Chas who'd put a bullet in my head assuming that I wanted to take his stuff.

I don't think that'd happen. If it were zombie apocalypse, or there were many survivors, fighting to live... Maybe. But if you hadn't found another person in a few cities, months, or years, I doubt that your possessions would be of much interest to them. Two people in a world of things... Companionship would be more valuable than any of it.
