    If it is the end of the world

    I would like to suggest we have a good post-apocalyptic Earth rather than a terrible one

    So not anything that you would see in the X-Men for example

    I was making plans for god-king JC Denton in the event of apocalypse.

    Also, changing my name to "Lífþrasir" when things really start going bad.

    Oh, sure, people will mock, but when I'm alive cowering in Hoddmímis holt, and they're dead by Fenrir, well, who'll be laughing then?

    Here's the thing, GG

    No one believes it (except for my crazy coworker), but they'll definitely reference it for jokes

    And no matter how much you explain it, people are still gonna refer to it that way

    Trust me, trying to inform people about a misconception will only end in you wanting to tear your hair out

    I think your coworker is actually Nicolas Cage from Knowing.

    Depends

    Is Nicolas Cage actually right at the end of Knowing?

    Not everyone dies. Some get saved by aliens.

    Then no

    My coworker is not Nic Cage

    Because my coworker is crazy and misinformed and actually incorrect

    The New World Order is an Old World Disorder, these so called Elites are Sick and need to be dethroned from their Pedestal, they want to Eliminate 100% of Humanity, these Sick Elites need a wake up call and it will be up to Humanity to step up to the plate and stop them.
    If we don't expose them to the World , if you don't stop their Agenda, we are all dead.
    These Sick People must be stopped if we are to survive as a Human Race, this is serious shit.
    It is the Rothchilds , the Windors and the Romanoffs as well as the Rockerfellers.
    They mut be stopped before it's too late.
    Billions will die if humanity doesn't wake up!.

    The best end of the world would be if our Fictions, dreams, and legends came to reality and started to battle each other. Cthulhu vs. Batman vs. Kligons vs. Smoke monster vs. Tea Party Jesus vs. "real" Jesus vs. etc.

    It is one of the most amazing books I have read.

    The concept of rebirth and resurrection has always fascinated me. I think it's why I kind of have a soft spot for phoenixes. To be completely eradicated and still rise from the ashes anew is an enviable trait at the very least.

    Anyway, less on the literal meaning resurrection, thinking about the repercussions and eventualities in different situations in which the human race is nearly wiped out but manages to persevere can be really interesting and thought-provoking

    but talking about what you'd do if zombies were real is borin' as hell

    hi5

    redfenix has been my moniker for like, 10 years because of the classic mythology behind the phoenix
    to be fair, i made in like high school, and it predates starcrafts's fenix dude, and the damn gears of war guy
