America, China, Russia, Britain, and whatever nuclear countries are out there are currently involved in a full scale, all out war. Russia decides to use nuclear missiles, creating a deadly chain reaction that ends up wiping a majority of our population on the planet. I use Russia purely as an example. It doesn't matter who fires the first nuclear missile, as we are all screwed anyways. But, you are one of the few who survived, along with 1 billion others scattered across the planet. How would your reaction be? Would you be satisfied, or happy? Would you be angry? Explain your emotions. Some people think that humanity is currently a joke, and that if many of us were killed, that would be a good thing. Do you feel the same way?

Angry, but also thankful.

Sad, but also hopeful.

Distrought, but also optimistic.

Now, I realize, that world can continue more equally than before.

BTW: Dont you think 1 billion is a lot for a full scale nuclear war?

1 billion people is still alot, so you would be able to find alot of people in your area still alive. Depends on how screwed up the world is, if the world is okay, IE only cities got blown up, then Id be okay with it, not angry. now because it gives the world a new lease on live. now if massive amount of animals died, IE a whole species being wiped out then id be pretty upset.

I would be pretty upset. As for the thing you said about humans being a joke, that's really true. We are basically killing ourselves with all kinds of crap.

I think maby it would be a changing thing. Look at september 11. The nation poled together to help and support eachother. We tryed to forget are everday problems and worry about some one else. Maby the hole world would be like this. Maby the goverments would get killed :) and citizens would take over and stop the war. Or maby the countries would get mad at eachother and start a full scale WW3 with solders, tanks etc... I think it would be a wake up call to people that go to there schools and jobs without thinking of the rest of the worlds problems. My point we would all be in the same boat. The usa might be as devistated as a 3rd world country.

Whoppee! Most of our advanced technologies, the civilisation our ancestors died to construct, the very network you are proposing this idea on... all gone, not to mention the billions of people who for the most part have done nothing worthy of being nuked on anybody's scale of sin. What kind of question is this? The only people who think a nuclear holocaust is a good idea are also the only people who should be killed in the event of one! The radiation, the projected nuclear winter, the lack of food and medicine... there may be survivors, but not many, and mostly not for long. Anybody who thinks this is a good idea needs to see a psychiatrist. It is the primary instinct of all animals to survive and to keep their species alive, i.e. procreation. What you are suggesting is the obliteration of our species.

As for me, id fell a few things

1. so upset and distrot and worried about life and god knows what id commit suacide

2. happy, alot of the scum of the world would be dead. useing up of earths reasorces would be reduced only 1 billion alive, so not much used, solve alot of problems like houseing food shortiges and hunger, less wars and people would be to scared of what happened last time, and of course with only a billion ppl there would be more room.

3.thankfull i am alive but i would feel empty

o and yes and just so you can understand the kinda numbers here, the population of india is ruffle 1billion

theres about 24-50 billion on the planet right now so thats quite a lot dead.
