This months question is:
Which situation or event that is currently happening do you think most easily could result in the apocalypse?
Alien invasion, of course!
Not really. Despite what I like to write, I believe there is a 0% chance of alien's actually invading earth. There are plenty of ways to end the world that are more realistic (and keep me up at night if I think too hard about them). I'm going to go with an oldie but goodie (or baddie):
Global Thermonuclear Warfare.
Did you know there are more than 17,000 nuclear weapons on the planet right now? That's just insane. And it's not like world governments are all that stable. *shudder* I'm sure I don't have to outline all the effects a nuclear war would have on the planet. We've seen enough movies, TV shows, etc. to already know.
I don't really think nuclear war is imminent or anything, but I do think it is the most likely way to trigger the apocalypse.
