What things would you miss if the civilized world as you know it came to an end?

I'd miss pizza from many restaurants like pizza hut and little caesars, chicken from chick fil a, mocha frappachinos and fresh french fries.
There'd be a lot of food I'd miss.

I'd miss the internet as well.


Edit: Okay, some peeps are missing this idea of this thread. It's not YOU ending. The civilized world is gone, poof and you're still around. A survivor. Hope I made that clear. :wink:

I would miss getting to listen to singers like the following:
Dmitri Hvorostovsky
Bryn Terfel
Rene Pape
Thomas Quasthoff
Hayley Westenra
Anna Netrebko
Enya
Renee Fleming
and so on...

I would also miss the beauty of sunrise in the mountains of Colorado during the summer, or sunset on the beach, and things like that, as well as the women in my life (mother, sisters, girlfriends).

I hope the world doesn't end. That's where I keep all my stuff.

Everything. If the world ends, there won't be anyone or anything to miss, and no one to remember that it, and we, were here.

I would miss the video games, written porn fiction, coffie, and restaurants. I wouldn't miss the bullies, bigots and jerks.

Nothing. You can't miss anything when you're not alive anymore.

if I was I wouldn't be thinking of what I miss which may be air or the ground, but then I wouldn't really have that issue for long would I

Well let's assume you're still around after civilization ended. Like in Zombieland where that guy only wants to find a twinkie.

I'd miss hot showers too, but I could find a way to heat some water if I wanted to.

I'd probably miss central air and heat and working toilets too.

Not much. I'd shift into either suicidal/fatalistic, or determined survivor mindset (which is about as far from the normal "me" as it's possible to get, but it's my hunch or fantasy as to what would probably happen :lol: ), and in either I wouldn't be thinking much about the past. Except possibly as something requiring vengeance to be wreaked, which would rather depend on the nature of the catastrophe. :wink:

Losing the internet gridlink might do me good. :?

assuming there is an afterlife, I would miss nothing because everything good about the world would presumably either be in heaven or have an even better replacement for it.

assuming there is no aterlife I would miss nothing because my mind would no longer exist.
:wink:
