Re^2: The worst case scenario
in thread The worst case scenario
Thanks for the info, but I still stand by my original choice.
I would think that, as a Christian, you would think that the Apocalypse is the best-case scenario, as it constitutes the fulfillment of the divine plan. What could possibly be better?
While this is true it sort of leads to mixed feelings. On one hand, I would get to meet my Lord, but on the other, there are so many souls that are yet to be saved.
I could see your point, if the poll question implied that the event was imminent.
The moon would crash into the Earth
The moon would breakup at the Roche limit
The wire would turn the Earth into a giant electromagnet
The Earth would turn into a giant yo-yo.
The moon would orbit every ~24 hours, significantly changing the lunar calendar
The centripetal force would rip out the Earth's core
All man-made satellites would be destroyed, causing great havoc
Moon landings would become significantly easier
The rope or wire would break, no matter how strong it was
The Vulcans would show up for First Contact causing yet another revision to the timeline
The Galactic Police would snip the rope and put the Earth on probation
Some idiot would get terrible, terrible, rope burn
We finally get those golf balls back
