Pondering the possible ways America and its inhabitants will be destroyed? Instead of worrying about apocalyptic robots or asteroids, pick one for yourself over at Slate with Choose Your Own Apocalypse.
Slate has come up with 144 potential scenarios, and the interactive site allows you to choose up to five favorites. Some are fairly obvious like nuclear war or some form of pestilence, but there are new ones to consider like that asteroid that could crash into the earth in 2036 . Then there are the totally unexpected possibilities like: “Vermont Independence,” “Gray Goo” or an “Alien Species” that devours everything and everyone it encounters. Pick your favorite and find out what your apocalyptic choices say about you, and then compare your answers with the results of more than 60,000 other readers.
