Chances are, according to where you are in the world or what you faith is, you don’t celebrate Christmas. Another holiday might take its place for you. Or, you might celebrate it differently: in Japan, it is celebrated as a couple’s holiday, much as Saint-Valentine’s day. You could also celebrate it, but without paying any attention to its religious origins.
To conclude a series of 5 posts about the apocalypse, I have collected my favorite artistic renderings and photos that allow of to imagine what a post-apocalyptic world would look like.
The apocalypse is feared for many reasons: on one hand, it might completely destroy Earth, and therefore humanity. On the other, should it leave Earth intact, it would most likely bring deep changes in humanity, be it the collapse of governments, a massive drop in population, social chaos, and so on. At least that’s how it goes in the movies.
Let’s think back to the various apocalyptic scenarios we’ve heard people talk about in the last 20 years. There’s the zombies, the Nostradamus prophecies, the alien invasion and the planetary alignment, to name a few. Through history, fears of impending doom have manifested themselves in even more various forms.
Should zombies take over the world, popular culture will have given us some preparation. Watching movies and TV series on the topic, you might have learned a trick or two about hiding from, killing, escaping and controlling zombies mobs. Many books, like the Zombie Survival Guide or the Zombie Combat Manual have been released to provide you with more detailed information. Zombie survival kits, Zombie crime scene tape and emergency response operations packets are also available for your convenience.
