It's only a kidding thread, but it could be good to rant a bit.
If there would be an Armagedonn, who would you save?
Bruce Willes doesn't count for obvious reasons, he is the one who has to make the sacrified and I have heard that he is a Psychopath.
I'm sure I heard once that some clever NASA type people have already started thinking about this question. I think there was an idea to take a select group of people to colonise Mars or something if the extinction of the human race were ever a real possibility. I'd be curious to know who they had on their list. I'd imagine there'd be room for a few thousand people, and I'd definitely want a few exceptional types, like Stephen Hawking, Noam Chomsky, Aung San Suu Kyi. I'd have to take Barack Obama, he can lead the new society! I'd also have to take Mark Everett [E of Eels], Chris Martin, Paul McCartney, Thom Yorke and Jack White. Also maybe Derren Brown and David Blaine. They'd be fun! But then you'd want a nice cross section of ordinary people too. Nobody with a criminal record I doubt, or any other blotches on their life CV. But I'd want a lot of the minorities represented. I'm not sure who else.....interesting question.
