Okay,so ofcourse nobody would want to live through any of these options, but if you had to choose one which global disaster would you most want to live through?

My favorite is Alien Invasion, without the probing. Coming in 2nd is Biblical End Times.

Zombie shooting would be awesome and I have several secret rooms in my house

Definitely zombies. Bullets can't fight off alien ships, disease or nuclear fallout.

I would die a happy person knowing that Aliens do exist.

I'll go with Mass Infertilization. It doesn't result in suffering and it ensures that there aren't any annoying little kids around. I'll get to live out my days in peace.

Nuclear War: Holy crap that was a bright light! Cannibals!
Alien Invasion:"Human Scum #758,596,996,7474 ,Line up for your probing!"
Race War: "Kill The White Devil...except the women!"
Mass Infertilization: "last one alive, remember to turn out the lights"
Zombie Apocalypse: "Brains"
Biblical End Times(Judgement Day(s)): "Is that a trumpet I hear? Satan!"

So my choices are:

Fallout War of the Worlds Turner Diaries Children of Men World War Z, and Left Behind?

I would go with Fallout. I've always wanted to roam the wasteland.

I wouldn't mind a zombie apocalypse at all compared to the other options. Most of us would be at least somewhat prepared for all situations thanks to movies, tv, and video games. Plus I wouldn't have go to work...

I voted for it. Time to get all the pent up anger between the races. Let's just get it out of our systems, beat the hell out of each other and move one.

Black vs. White vs. Hispanic vs. Asian vs. Arab in a Royal Rumble type thrown down.

Okay, here's the deal.

Nuclear apocalypse. This is the worst-case scenario. First, there's a good chance that you're going to be dead within the first hour. If you survive that, you're going to be sick a lot, and the food supply is going to be poisoned and nothing's going to grow for a while. The survivors will be fighting for food and it's going to be unpleasant. Rank: 6

Alien invasion. Will it be interesting? Sure. Will it be enlightening? Sure. Do you have any chance of coming out of this in a positive manner? No. If the aliens are here, they're way more advanced than we are. Worst case they just nuke us from orbit. Second-worst case they come in, study us, and make us salt-mine slaves on the scorpion world of Xyorn-3. There is no positive outcome other than maybe seeing Xyorn-3. Rank: 4.

Race war. I'm assuming this is race and not nationality. Therefore, this answer depends on your race, I guess. If you're in America and you're not white, you're screwed. You're outnumbered. By the time your Chinese or Zimbabwean or Aboriginal allies arrive, you're dead at the hands of some North Dakota farmer. If you're white, yeah, you have to kill your minority friends, but other than a few strongholds like Detroit and the Bronx and maybe some Navajo reservations in Arizona, you're going to win. (Which brings up the question of whether it's also an ethnic war - do whites and Hispanics fight, too? If so, Texas, Miami, and southern California would get bloody.) The only downside of this is whether it also becomes a nuclear war due to the Chinese, but my assumption is not. Rank: 2.

Mass infertilization: While this seems like it would be a graceful failure, I think it wouldn't. With all of the other things, there's an assumption of some long-term redemption. With this, there's not. If people are no longer building toward the future, I think you get a lot more selfish behavior. People will do their own thing, spend all of their money, government will go haywire, and all sorts of stuff. Even so, I think you have lots of planning time available, so perhaps reason could rule. You just don't want to be around at the end when it's nothing but Alzheimer's people running around, which would more or less resemble the zombie apocalypse but you'd be aiming at hips more. Rank: 1

Zombie apocalypse. It really depends on whether it's the zombies that stop when you shoot them or the ones where the pieces keep advancing. If it's the latter, this is a really bad one. If it's the former, I think humanity wins pretty easily. Slow, dimwitted opponents? Maybe they take over Afghanistan and some of those equatorial African nations, but not a big deal. However, there's still some risk. Rank: 3

Biblical End Times: This is a tough one. Do non-religious people just stay on earth and convert the churches to gyms and community centers? Or do we get sent to fiery hell? I'm not very well read on the subject. And is this just the Christians who go? If it's all religious people we could get all of the Middle East problems solved really quick and convert it to sheep and goat pastures, and the world would be much better off. But if we go to the fiery hell, or if all the Christians leave and we still have to deal with the Middle East, it wouldn't be good. Not to mention having to admit I'm wrong about religion regardless of the outcome. This one is risky. Rank: 5.

Is this a contest?

Zombie apocalypse in a walk. None of the other options have even the slightest potential of being enjoyable. Zombie apocalypse, OTOH, could be highly entertaining for a couple of days, until a zombie rodent scratches me or something.

In the meantime, however, going to town on a bunch of slow-moving undead with an AR-15 would be a freakin' blast.

I'm within three miles of FermiLab. If it's nuclear war, I'm done. And I'm good with that.

Anything else, I'll at least have a chance to fight back. If I'm going down, I'm taking a few with me.

I'd feel right at home killing zombies, just like "Tallahassee" in Zombieland.

I'm with you. I'd rather deal with aliens though. Fucking zombies creep me out.

This is the obvious choice. Despite the fact that we don't have a "Mass infertilization", it seems the behavior you predict is already happening.

Though Zombies may seem like the easiest to deal with, there is the chance you'd need to put a bullet through your undead Mom, Dad, Brother, Sisters, Son, or Daughter's brain.

Could you do it?
