Race war: unassimilated Mexicans v. Americans.

I don't wish for it, but hell, when the radio commercials during SEAN HANNITY's radio show are about a hispanic-american women and her elderly hispanic mother discussing Uncle Luiz and ma-MA signing up for Medicare drug benefits, I have little hope.

ETA: I'm not making this up, I heard it today during Hannity's afternoon show.

I foresee people continuing to post 5-option polls, which don't work, and enabling multiple answers when they don't mean to.

In Italy, Mt. Vesuvius is said to blow at any minute. Could be tragic with all those people in Naples.

I voted for all 4.
Avian Flu is virtually guaranteed in my book.
WWIII tirggered by events in the ME as well as others is almost a foregone conclusion.

Race war is less likely but given a century....maybe
Asteroid collision? As likely tomorrow as any other day and it will happen eventually so WTF.

Interesting consideration. I could see it happening also.
I think only the first 2 are highly probable however.

WWIV and a Civil War

Well, if you are looking at it from a worldwide perpsective, one, three and four are already happening.

A large Earthquake or volacanic eruption are pretty likely in the US in the next 100 years.

I will be very surprised if a Nuke, or Biological exchange does not happen somewhere in the world in the next 20 years.

Major volcano/earthquake/tsunami event damaging a major population center or six.

I also wonder if the world economy might not collapse into a second Depression due to all the deficit spending going on worldwide. It looks like a bad ponzi scheme to me, dependent on continuous wealth creation at an ever-increasing pace.

If the right domino falls...

TEOTWAWKI

As I christian, and seeing what is happening in the world around us I would tend to belive that we are headed for the end times....ie: rapture.

And before you would start the flaming post about my backwardness I also pray that it doesn't happen in the life time of my children. I would rather see people have every opprotunity to enjoy the wonderful things of this world and experiance the joy of being a father.

But with thing going the way they are......I am preparing for TEOTWAWKI , just placing my bet on what the Bible says is the way it ends.

Flame on....

A large volcanic eruption, or several, such as Karakatoa would be devastating around the globe.

Just adding that for those that think the damage would only be local. Climactic change would be catastrophic, especially considering the limited food reserves.

If a medium sized asteroid strike occurs I will be expecting the same. But not until them.

medium sized = large enough to cause large scale damage and climactic change but not so large as to devastate the entire surface of the planet.

They're all possible except for the race war thing. I don't think that's ever going to happen. There might be a war between regions of the globe that have predominantly homogenous races (i.e., NATO vs. China/N. Korea), but there won't be a war based/organized/fought solely on the basis of race.
Link Posted: 3/15/2006 6:58:34 PM EDT
I'd go with "other."

Why the fuck do you have to assume the shit is gonna hit the fan?

It will probably be status quo for a long, long time with a few bad disruptions along the way.

Let's face it. The shit has hit the fan quite a few times already, and we are quite warm and fuzzy.

I think it will be war with the Cheenks and the Turban heads.

War to continue between Muslim Africa and the rest of Africa.
Link Posted: 3/15/2006 7:05:40 PM EDT
i think the "global war from the middle east" , and "the race war" go together.... so i clicked both of those
Link Posted: 3/15/2006 7:07:02 PM EDT
I think rather than "race war" it may be one big "religious war"...which takes us to "global war sparked out of the middle east."

Cold War with China over Tiawan.

You forgot to include the fall of the US.
