    complete extinction of humanity just doesn’t have the same sting that it use to…

    What if there were some other top-of-the-food-chain species on Earth in the past that had cities and everything that went with them?  100,000 years and it’s all gone.  We’d have no idea they were ever here, other than some fossil records.  What if we had some version of civilization that long ago, in between ice ages?  Wouldn’t it be cool to find their version of a thumb drive at a dig containing many of their collected works?

    “Our works in stone, in paint, in print, are spared, some of them, for a few decades or a millennium or two, but everything must finally fall in war, or wear away into the ultimate and universal ash – the triumphs, the frauds, the treasures and the fakes. A fact of life: we’re going to die. “Be of good heart,” cry the dead artists out of the living past. “Our songs will all be silenced, but what of it? Go on singing.” Maybe a man’s name doesn’t matter all that much.”  -Orson Welles

    I just have to say that second picture looks like the cities with humans still around. I think nature taking over will be a lot greener.

    The last nuclear reactors will melt down and make a terrible mess with no one to manage the cooling.
