Greetings all,

OK, say you are a scientist and you have discovered that the end of the world is coming. How could you tell the rest of mankind that it is real and you are not a nut???

How would we know?

Just like any other scientific statement -- show us the evidence.

What exactly are you trying to ask ?

Anyway, this is what i would do -

1 - Go into a cave and come out once in a while. While I am at it, write a book on how the world will end.
2 - Say nice things to people and become popular.
3 - A few days later, declare that i have had a vision that the earth will be destroyed. Show them the book also.
4 - Relax and watch the people i mentioned above spread the information.

Better plan: But it only works if you have a year or two between your discovery and the end of the world.

1) Write book, in secret. Bury it under a rock near a cave.
2) work a month or two at your old day job.
3) then disappear into a cave.
4) be popular
5) claim vision that takes you to the book
6) have people read the book, which says that the end of the world is near.

Its worked before.

Build a spaceship just big enough to carry your only son. Find a nice low-gravity planet to send him to, so he can leap around and stuff. If you have enough time, send recordings to educate him during his trip.

Oh, and make sure there aren't any criminals with a vendetta against your family, who will track your son down for revenge.

Yes, and it can work again. Wine is wine. Most people don't get tired of wine for nothing beats the comfort of drunken stupor. Even if it is same old wine in a new bottle.

I know! We'll use the Facebook! But first, let's split up.
