Fire and Ice
by Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

This is exactly what the poll made me think of.

I read a great interview in a Spanish version of Geo in which an ecologist was basically saying "look at the Mayans--their world ended". That changed my perspective on the whole process.

I chose change, but actually it *will* end when something happens to the sun.

I suspect humans will end "mired in our own stupidity." The world will just change until the heat-death of the universe.

My real answer is that worlds end all the time, for all kinds of reasons, and are born all the time. I live in many worlds, and they will end in different ways.

But I clicked zombie apocalypse, because hey, zombies.
