    • Billy,
      This is probably the most interesting post I’ve read on this website. I really like this post because you aren’t making this topic into a joke, but it is in all seriousness. And I agree with you! I think pandemics and epidemics will eventually get to the human race. Our vaccinations and shots are starting to create super-viruses that our bodies won’t be immune to (especially through the antibiotics found in meats). I also heard the flu epidemic going around right now is “killing 4000 people a week” (which I highly doubt, but it is still really scary to think about because maybe it isn’t a flu but a new virus with flu-like symptoms). Also, the movie Contagion comes to mind when I read your first paragraph about pandemics and I recommend watching that movie! Here is an article you might like: https://www.motherjones.com/food/2012/07/antibiotic-use-vaccines-factory-farms-creating-new-pathogens/

    • Billy, I absolutely love posts like this I have spent a considerable amount of time thinking about our Earths demise and how we will become a single blip in time. There are so many crazy theories to how we might die some more realistic than others. To be honest I would like to see how some of these theories would play out. We may still be alive when our world comes to an end but I doubt it. Because of this I will never see how the World ends and I would actually be very interested into how it does. If I could take a step back and watch many different realities of the many apocalypse you spoke of in your article like a simulation I would. Keep doing research I would be very interested in what you find. Heres a article that might help you.

    Jaylin, though I do not know you personally, I think that they way in which you express yourself in this poem is simply beautiful. By describing yourself through things you love and enjoy, you portray a sense of individualism that is unique from any other person. Please continue to create works such as this one as I found it very beautiful,…Read More

  • Ed, I find that your analysis of age limits for certain things such as voting, drinking, and being eligible for things such as war very compelling, as not many people consider why these ages were set in the first place. I am very interested to hear more about this subject because I often wonder why someone can give their life for their own country…Read More

    • Billy,
      I find this topic very interesting. I have seen scientists and meteorologists in shows who discuss this topic and they mention a “cap” to human existence meaning that eventually the human race will get to a point where we can no longer survive on this earth.

    • Dear Billy,
      I agree with the fact that the human race is the one to blame for the affects we have caused to planet. Maybe you should look for articles on climate change and the damages it has done around the world, which is a leading cause to the change in weather and potential extinction to animals on earth. You could also look for the over grown population around the world, as to why in certain cultures having a big family is a good thing but the impact it has on earth it isn’t. I am interested in to what else you will add to your topic, good luck!

    • Billy,
      This topic was very interesting to read about. This link will take you to an interesting article I read about why we should colonize otehr planets. https://futuretravel.today/why-we-must-colonize-space-ea7d54e2deb6
      I have heard this topic before that there is a cap to how much we can take from the earth until there just arent enough resources. Hope you find what you were looking for.

    • Hi Billy,
      this is a very interesting topic that you have chosen. Your topic concerns all of humanity, and plays a huge part in our future generations. I often wonder how long it will be until we kill off our species, or we destroy all of our resources and food. A good resource/video i think you would find interesting is linked to this comment. I think you should check it out if you have the time.

  • Maxwell, I found that your article on assisted suicide was very interesting and I am glad that you brought this subject to light. Though it is an uncomfortable subject to talk about, it is necessary to discuss as it happens on a daily basis. I also learned new information as you explained that it was not technically a treatment but instead…Read More
