Pre-Apocalypse Fun: Impact Earth

While I think the apocalypse will arrive as a result of us blowing ourselves up or allowing a fancy new designer virus that turns everyone into zombies to fall into the wrong hands, I’ve always been partial to The End coming as a result of an asteroid impact. (Well, that and alien invasion. What can I say, I’m a science fiction geek.)
I think it puts the human race in a slightly better light, since we wouldn’t have offed ourselves as a result of someone’s inability to play well in the sandbox. However, I also don’t think anyone’s going to be able to drill a hole in the middle of this large flying object and put a nuke in it so that it blows itself up (yes, Armageddon, I’m looking at you).

Likely Apocalypses: A list

With the Rapture in the news a little while ago, Char asked all our readers what their apocalypse looked like. I commented (as did many others) but thought on it a little more. I spent quite some time thinking, and eventually, I came up with a list of apocalypses, from least likely to most likely. Then I thought of what you and yours could do to survive them.

The Rapture

Today either is, or isn’t the Rapture. Let’s face it, probably ‘isn’t’. We’ve been getting a huge number of new visitors from Rapture based searches, and I just wanted to say: Hello, Fellow Paranoids!
Regardless of whether the Rapture has occured or not, there is still a lot of survival based stuff to learn. We hope you stick around, and figure out how to survive a more likely apocalypse. Like hyper-intelligent animals, or cats with thumbs. Or genetically engineered plants.
Take a look around, figure out your best survival techniques. Our archives are listed by topic down the side there. Start with all the posts listed in ‘Basic Survival‘, and if nothing’s kicking down the door to your house, read the rest. And if you can think of something we haven’t covered, and you want to write for us, please do contact us at info @ incaseofsurvival .com.
Don’t forget to join the facebook group, ‘like’ the official facebook page, and follow us on Twitter.
Note: If the Rapture has happened and you’re still here- God has abandoned you, you may as well start looting.*

What does your apocalypse look like?

I have no idea how I missed this, but apparently, the biblical Judgment Day (a.k.a. The Rapture) will occur on May 21, 2011. That’s right. The Rapture will happen THIS SATURDAY. The world will end (by fire) five months later, on October 21.
Well, according to some people. But that’s not the point.

Post-apocalyptic Video Game: RAGE

Set for release in September 2011, Rage embraces the notion of a chaotic, violent and indulgent future. It has a similar vibe to the Max Max or A Boy and His Dog universes. It’s some how dark and dangerous while still being light and fun.
