It is not zombies or oversized monsters like Godzilla.

It is ourselves.

 

We have always been our own worst enemies. Where have you been for the past 250,000 years? Get down from that tree!

Oh, I was just pointing out common future tropes (that were said to happen in this century) and comparing them to our actual reality.

History tends to repeat itself roughly 4 times per century and this one isn't quite a fourth of the way through yet so I think we have a little time. 

First thing most will think of is the Covid pandemic coinciding timewise with the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918. Almost exactly 100 years in between. 

If things follow along previous events, stock market crash should be the next major event so the next Black Tuesday will probably occur within the next 5 years.

Figures. The next Great Depression will start right before I'll be eligible for full retirement and SS.

Thanks a lot Gopi.*

Now move over and make room for me in that tree. 🥴

 

*I mean that in a teasing way.

To change everything drastically in my life, I only need one lottery win.
And whatever others say, I'm one week closer to that goal than last week.  😆

I'm sure you'll make it within the next 1000 years. 😁 Question is: will the world last long enough so that you can make it? 😎

Speaking for the other aliens present, we’re the LEAST of your problems 🙂

But…in the interest of total transparency, if you guys

…nuke yourselves

…kill your biosphere

…”woke” yourselves into starvation or non-reproduction

…otherwise depopulate your planet

We are SO swooping in and renaming it “Our Summer Place” even though it will be a fixer-upper.

Make your enemy your friend, then pour him a drink because he's such a nice guy and carry on.

Oh and go out and do something for the environment :P

The Old Ones were, the Old Ones are, and the Old Ones shall be. Not in the spaces we know, but between them, they walk serene and primal, undimensioned and to us unseen. Yog-Sothoth knows the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the key and guardian of the gate. Past, present, future, all are one in Yog-Sothoth. He knows where the Old Ones broke through of old, and where They shall break through again.
