You're the last person on Earth, what do you do?


Recommended Posts

Well, the title says it all, so what would you do?

I'd fly myself to the Bahamas and listen to Jimmy Buffet and Alan Jackson while on a beach, then fly around, and see the wonders of the world.

Last person. Not the last human. So last sentient on earth. There's probably a lot of people out there, but they're out of reach (try designing, building and launching a rocket, more or less from scratch, all by yourself). Even if there's some robotic help, soon the maintenance back log kicks in and I'm quickly out of energy. And food (ok, I can loot easily, or grow stuff. But again, on my own, without any help ? I'm a broken ankle from death by starvation. And I do not even know how to fix a broken ankle. So, falling from too high is a death sentence).

I'll probably enjoy the quiteness, just before killing myself. There's no point on being the last sentient around. And I cannot reach for the stars. Might as well stop everything.

Yeah, welcome to my world of depression people, it sucks.

I wouldn't have to grade exams any more! No more grading term papers, and no putting up with students falling asleep in lecture.

Ah, that would be paradise! So I would:

  • Find a local library with a lot of books. I love to read.
  • Stock up as much fuel, food, and weapons I can.
  • And as @Just Jim said, wait for the vampires, zombies, or aliens to try to capture me.

I would sit down and play Ksp for years until I can document all the bugs. After reporting all the bugs, I would realise that no one from squad exists anymore and that I would have to play the buggy mess forever. I would then detonate all of the nuclear bombs in the world, one by one. Soon, the world will be covered by ashes and I will be laughing like a mad scientist.

I am pretty sure that everyone would have done that eventually. I would probably get crippling depression after a few hours of existing, with no one but my dog and a few chickens. I wouldn't know what to do but sit there, walk around, be sad, and scared. I might eventually muster up the courage to kill myself.

That's what would most likely happen IRL, but if I were going by the rules these people were going by (infinite fuel, infinite knowledge, immune to sadness) I would blow everything into something, with the power of the atom, but not before exploring around and seeing if there are ALIENS IN AREA 51!

YEAH! THATS THE SPIRIT!!!! Over at R&D, someone got sucked into a portal. The last thing we heard before the portal disappeared was “ANOMALY AT AREA 51!” and a bunch of giants running up to poor Kilo.
