It’s The End Of The World Meme As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)

A new, sobering meme created by JDC.

I was tagged by Jin.

The question is:
“You wake up tomorrow and every person on the planet has vanished.
What do you do?”
The replies are:
Day One
Week One
Month One
Year One

Day One:
HOLY SHIT.
Have some lunch.
HOLY SHIT.
Ride around a bit.
HOLY SHIT.
Dinner.
HOLY FUCKING SHIT.
Try to sleep.

Week One:
I’d probably already be stocking up on supplies. How long would there be electricity? Without people running things, how long would things keep running? I would be thinking about these things, assuming things were still running.

I’d take daily trips (probably multiple trips) in search of others. My mood would alternate between panic and a deep dark depression, I imagine.

Month One:
I start to realize think there is no one else but me. Still taking trips, scanning TV/radio. At this point I would have scrounged up a HAM radio and tried that, too.

I would be completely stocked with food (mostly canned goods) from plundering various grocery stores. I would be contemplating growing my own food as well, but might not have started yet.

Would there be animals? I’d probably like to have some kind of dog so there would be someone I could talk to. It’s likely all the animals in the pet stores I would visit would be dead (maybe not).

Year One:
I have a garden where I grow vegetables. I have lots of food and water. I watch movies, I read books. If I have a dog, I play outside a lot with it. I still check for signs of human life from time to time, but my heart’s not in it.

I exercise a lot. I get firearms and practice shooting. I try to enjoy my life. I watch sunsets.

FAIL Meme FAIL

I think I saw the first FAIL pictures very soon after they started popping up on the web (a year ago? a year and a half?).

I thought the first ones I saw were sort of funny, but then these kinds of pictures started appearing everywhere.

Next, a few sites sprung up, devoted to all things FAIL.

I really started disliking the whole business, because:

1) Most of the time, it wasn’t funny.
2) It was often mean-spirited.
3) I’m tired of people lazily shitting on other people/things for a cheap laugh.
4) I’m tired of people lazily shitting on other people/things in general.

It’s okay to make light of others on occasion, etc. (hey, it must be okay if *I* do it!), but for something to have sneering at anything and everything else as its sole purpose — well, it’s just too much for me to take.

For this, FAIL meme, you fail.

The Impossible Truth Behind Snake Plissken’s Eyepatch

Ladies and Gentlemen! Children and Literate Animals!

Today, I draw your attention to a disease not often discussed – COMPULSIVE WINKING SYNDROME (CWS).

CWS afflicts tens of Americans every year. It is a silent killer, or at the very least, a silent annoyance.

Did you know that CWS caused the tragic suicide of Superman George Reeves?

Look it up!

How many times has CWS resulted in a dangerous misunderstanding?

Ask former President George W. Bush!

But now there is help.

Man’s man Snake Plissken suffered just as the tens of you out there have suffered, until his years of sneering, tough comic book dialogue and intense studies resulted in the invention of the Snake Plissken Wink Concealer ™!

The Snake Plissken Wink Concealer ™!

ACCEPT NO SUBSTITUTES!

P.S. Thanks to Piper for this delightful meme, and to SamuraiFrog for tagging me.
