End of the world discussion: A geeks survival guide to the end of the world

This is it everybody, the final day. Tomorrow, on the 21st December 2012, the world as we know it is supposed to fall into complete collapse, wiping out every known life form, including us. We’ve got a few ideas to help during the chaos and if you have some ideas too, lets hear it!

Don’t worry though, there’s a few things you can do as a Geek to live out the end of the world! Here’s how!

Keep Setting Your Time Back

Since you probably spend most of your time on your computer, you have ultimate control over what time it is. Just go to your clock settings, and set it back a day when the time reaches 23:59 tonight. This will allow you to live the day all over again. A plus side to this is that you’ll never age, either!

Download the Survival Kit app

You’ve probably got yourself a rather expensive smartphone right? If so, you can probably spend a dollar on one of the MANY Survival Kit apps in the App Store, on both iPhone and Android. Sorry BlackBerry and Windows Phone, you’re going to have to use REAL TOOLS this time round. A little warning to iPhone/Android users, be careful when using the app, you don’t want to cut your finger off accidentally, you’ll need that to continue typing when you undoubtedly survive the chaos!

Load your iPod with EPIC MUSIC

You know what’s better than running through an exploding city with buildings falling down all around you? Listening to Two Steps From Hell, Hans Zimmer and other great Artists while running through an exploding city with buildings falling down all around you! Artists like that make EPIC MUSIC which can help when running from your life, seriously!

Buy a Laptop or Tablet

If you use a desktop PC, you won’t be able to carry it around with you when the world ends. Instead, buy yourself a Laptop, it allows for easy portability when jumping from building to building after the apocalypse. If you already have a Laptop, then don’t worry, you’re all set! Bonus points if you have a Surface RT tablet, but you will need to find apps in the Windows Store to help you with your survival.


Get yourself a video camera and VLOG the whole thing! You’ll probably enjoy watching it back after you survive it all. You can also upload it to YouTube, where you can hope to get dozens of hits, as not everyone is going to have access to a PC or internet connection anymore.

So there you have it, a few tips from someone who knows what they’re talking about. Good luck tomorrow, and DON’T. STOP. RUNNING! Do you have any survival tips? Post them in the comments below.
