I think it wil end via "Alf". If anyone else saw the final episode of Alf, than you are well aware that Alf and his people will be wanting revenge on the earthen people at some point.

For the poll - what do I fear the most, Black Hole especially if it's a slow eventual death as the world gets engulfed.

What I love to see - Zombies I love the idea of a Zombie apocalypse.

So I guess this is two different questions? The thread title is what we WANT to happen and the poll question is what do we FEAR will happen?

What I'm most afraid will happen? First, I ain't scared homie, take me today, I'll stare that alien in the eyes as he takes my life. I'd be scared of a long, slow death where we witness suffering.

What I would prefer happen? Anything instant. I don't want the world to know and have final moments of panic. I don't want suffering over time. I just want a flash and it's over. I think that would be best. Gone before we knew what happened.

I don't know. I'd like to realize what happens and then go like "Well, **** me." and then everything gets bright and stuff like they do it in the movies.

Not me. No panic, no confusion, no buildup. Just poof, game over.

What I WANT to happen is zombies, depending on what type of zombies you are talking about.

Are they Shaun of the Dead style Zombies? Since zombies aren't real and there are multiple types of them in different movies/entertainment, I'm going to go with that style, in which case they are slow moving, dumb, easily killable creatures. It would be interesting and dare I say somewhat exciting to survive and live in a world with those type of zombies.

What about 28 day later Zombies? The thought of THOSE zombies are terrifying.

I haven't many zombie movies but the most plausible form of zombie would be the "infected" kind. Maybe the "I am Legend" style zombie. But most likely it would be some kind of disease causing the "zombies".

You would go with the Black Hole option then. From my calculations it would take an eternity before the planet would be entirely engulfed by one. It could be millions of years before a star spirals into one, but once it reaches the event horizon it'll probably take a millisecond.

Nuclear war is your option as every other option would be a fairly slow death.

Excellent question. I ran out of poll options so it's clumped into one category unlike the Alien category. So, you can use your imagination. Personally zombies should NOT be able to run like maniacs. I'd imagine they're a headache to deal with as is.
