Default The Human Race is...

As the options say.

I tried to give a range from bleakly pessimistic to rosily optimistic.

But I think it's not brilliantly worded. I've used 'clever' for instance, when some people might prefer adaptable, or clear-sighted or some other term to express the idea that we might be capable of deciding the right course of action. Of course, what that right action might be is a whole nother matter. But that's not the point of this poll, it's to guage what the feeling is on the totality of the world situation.

Seems to be working now - for me at least.

I dunno, there may be rules against polls in this forum, I didn't check.

Its workin fine now Orc. Threw up my vote. I sit in the middle ground. I think our civilization is having some serious issues right now. I think we can pull through it fine as long as we work towards achieving that goal.

I think if we don't find another planet or live in spacestations, we are utterly screwed. We have killed this planet.

Doomed. Simply doomed.

'At two minutes to eleven, opposite the South African Brigade, at the eastern-most point reached by the British armies, a German machine-gunner, after firing off a belt without pause, was seen to stand up beside his weapon, take off his helmet, bow, and then slowly walk to the rear.' -John Buchan

I pick option G: Going to be blown up by Dirge Eterna with a single antimatter-tipped RPG-7.

Seriously, though, I find myself growing disgusted by humanity. The thing I find most disgusting are the people that drive Escalades to a meeting, then whine about how gas prices are high, and the ozone layer is melting their iced cream, and wha, wha, wha.

Seriously, folks, time to get up, shut up, and live life so it actually isn't a detriment to everyone but yourself.

That's just my opinion, however. There's always exceptions to the rule.

We are in a bad way. I wouldnt call myself misanthropic (yet) but i must say my faith in humanity continues to be shaken. We seem to be only in it for the short term. Only a very select few look to the future.

A great tactician knows that victory is one part planning and nine parts faith

The Human race is killing itself in the most entertaining way it knows how to! I think it's funny we're all gonna die.
nothing's going to change until we realise that there's too many of us, wipe out three quarters and we should be fine for a while, not that thats going to happen.
