After us...

Just a thought (inspired by the imminent end of the world date 21st December...), if/when human race vanishes, which species do you think would take over the world?

My guess would be rats.

  • ants..........i read today that ants can survive in a microwave as they can avoid the raysimage

  • But there wouldn't be any microwaves.
  • It's gotta be the age old theory of cockroaches, they can survive anything!!



    Although if truth be told evolution would take place (eventually of course) and who knows what would become
  • I'd like it to be bunnies!

  • Dolphins.  I might start a new conspiracy theory that they're already at it, and have been responsible for the rising sea levels for years.  Not sure how they're doing it, but then that's their idea I guess.

  • Cockroaches will be the dolphins' lieutenants on land, with the owls in the air.

  • Elli the rats need humans to feed them and keep them cosy!

    Dolphins.  I might start a new conspiracy theory that they're already at it, and have been responsible for the rising sea levels for years.  Not sure how they're doing it, but then that's their idea I guess.

    Dolphins have been secretly controlling scientists, politicians and high ranking military officers via telepathy in order to get them to develop special machines that have been placed in strategic locations in the Arctic and Antarctic to melt the polar icecaps and raise the sea level to the point that large parts of land are flooded.

     

  • Sheep. They can train all those dogs to run round after them.....
  • I think it will be chavs. They have already sent some to our planet and mingle amongst us, trying to blend in. They think we havent noticed their rediculous behaviour but we have. We need to exterminate them before they get chance to take over the world

  • we dont have chavs. up here they are called neds.

    i admire them in a way. or not admire....envy. i envy them. they just do what they want.

  • Are you telling me that not all Scottish people are NEDs ?? image

  • not all. the duke of argyll isn't. and me.

    but apart from that.

  • Assuming that the end of the world does away with only the humans, then rats will (after they've eaten any dead humans) start to decline, as their food supply will dwindle without our waste.

    Cockroaches too.

    So I guess it will be the dolphins!

  • cockroaches will never dwindle, they dont need us to survive, they have been around for millions of years!!

    dolphins do sound like a good choice, but only downfall is land??

    why not the humble termite? they are pretty much bombproof?

  • Yes, cockroaches have been around a long time, but many of them live in human habitation now, eating what we drop down the back of the cooker.

    Without that food supply, the numbers would reduce.  I'm not suggesting they would disappear, but the numbers would drop as the food supply dropped.

  • no really - its Apes and they can ride horses and use 70s style guns, and they'll pull down the statue of liberty. I've seen it all in my dreams.

  • You really should give up smoking opium, Barkles!

  • ( cough cough)

  • Cats - ones with opposable thumbs.

  • Chuck Norris.

  • You trying to apply logic on here???image

  • That'll be me that survives ... thats who !!

    ... oh how you all laughed in the 90's when I started building that 'space ark' in my garden .... not so smug now are you eh eh !!!

    Now then ladies if you'd like to form an ordely queue I'll begin interviewing for positions in my "new Earth re-population" programme imageimage 

  • Pop! Modern Mayans say their ancients have been misunderstood. The world will not end only the current period of 144.000 days. We start counting again on Saturday.image

    Come on now people - if the world ends, there's no more anything! No insects, no animals, no humans, just a void. 

    You've been to Sheffield before then !
