Playing with the End

While we wait for social mood to roll over into the coming Wave 3 collapse you can play around with other end-of-the-world scenarios over at Slate.

How Is America Going To End?
Slate's "Choose Your Own Apocalypse" lets you map out the death of the United States.
By Josh Levin
If and when America expires, we probably won't agree on the cause of death. For proof that autopsies of empires are inconclusive, consider the case of Alexander Demandt, the German historian who set out in the 1980s to collect every theory ever given for why Rome fell. The final tally: 210, including attacks by nomads on horseback, blood poisoning, decline of Nordic character, homosexuality, outflow of gold, and vaingloriousness...

Interesting to see what channels are available for the coming tsunami of negative mood to pour down.
