This is one of the most hilarious stories I’ve seen yet.

“Long ago the bombs fell and the world ended. You are one of the few who is still alive. You are trying to survive by scavenging among the ruins of what is left behind. You walk for two hours and take a break. You’ve left the town you were in and are now in a more rural area. You look around and see  a farmhouse with a barn nearby, it looks like your destination.
> go inside

You enter the house and find that it’s been completely destroyed. The front door has been blown off its hinges and there’s nothing but rubble outside. Inside however, everything seems to be intact save for a few broken windows.
> look around the house

You search through the wreckage of the kitchen and bathroom and find some foodstuffs. They seem to have been untouched by the fire and you notice several bottles of water lying on top of a table. You also find a small bag of flour and a bag of oats.
> make food

You make bread from the grain and eat it. It tastes very bland though so you decide not to eat anything else until you can get more supplies.> look for more supplies

You look around the room for any sort of useful item and come up empty handed. You then think about your last meal and realize that you haven’t eaten since before the bombs hit. You begin to wonder if you should go back home or stay here in this ruin.
> go back home

You head back home with the intention of staying there as long as possible. You figure you’ll eventually run out of food and water and you won’t be able to hunt anymore either. You’ll just have to settle down and wait it out.
> look for zombies

You continue searching the house for any signs of zombies. You don’t see any of them and when you start looking through the broken windows again, you see no living people either. You also hear voices coming from upstairs which sounds like it might be someone’s.
> look upstairs

You cautiously peek out the window and see that the voice was indeed coming from upstairs. There’s another person standing there, dressed in civilian clothing. He looks at you with disgust and says “I’m sorry, but I can’t let you come in here”.”What?” you ask.
> hit him

You quickly grab his wrist and knock him over. He falls backwards and you kick him in the face causing him to fall further. When he hits the ground, you take advantage of his confusion and stab him repeatedly in the chest.
> walk in the room

You walk into the room and see that the man you killed is now lying on the floor. His clothes are covered in blood and he doesn’t even appear to be breathing. He looks like he’s dead. “Who are you?” you demand.
> go to the library

You head to the library where you read a book called ‘The Last Book’. It describes how books were once used to keep track of information, but they’ve become obsolete due to advances in technology. In fact, most of the information in the world is stored electronically nowadays.
> read it

You skim through the book and find that it does indeed describe the future. However, it also contains some predictions about the past. One of those is that books will soon become obsolete because computers will replace them.
> look for food

You search the shelves for any sort of edible substance and come up empty handed. You then think about your last meal and realize that you haven’t eaten since before the bombs hit. You also remember that you didn’t bring any food with you when you left the house.
> go to the store

You head to the local supermarket and buy yourself some bread. You also buy some milk and juice. You fill your glass with both liquids and drink them all down. The next day you wake up and realize that you’re hungry again. You wander outside and see a small shop.
> go into the shop

You enter the shop and notice that it’s very quiet. You also notice that the door is slightly ajar. You step inside and see a young girl sitting behind a counter staring intently at her computer screen. She turns around and sees you and smiles brightly.
> ask her what her name is

You speak quietly so she doesn’t overhear you. “My name is..”. you begin to say, but she interrupts you. “No, my name is… oh thank god!” she exclaims and runs out of the shop.

You sigh and sit down at the counter.
> look at the computer

You look at the screen and immediately recognize the words “Doomed City” written across it. You pause and try to work out if this means the city has been destroyed or not. Then you suddenly stop and wonder if you should go back home.
> get on a plane and go to egypt

You get on a plane and fly to Egypt. As soon as you land, you run straight towards the nearest building and start firing off bullets at anything that moves. You don’t know why, but you feel compelled to do something.
> find love

You spend the rest of the week looking for someone to marry. You meet several women and eventually settle on one named Tanya. You never thought you’d ever feel this way, but you decide to stay in contact with her. You tell her everything about yourself and she seems to really like you.
> ask her to marry you

You ask Tanya to marry you and she says yes. You smile and kiss her before leaving the airport. You return to your life as normal.A year passes…
It’s been five years since the bombs hit and the world has gone completely to ****.
> ask tanya to move in with you

You have no idea how long you’ll be able to live without her, but you need to make sure you can take care of her while you can. So you ask her to move in with you. She accepts instantly.
> travel the world with tanya

The first few months after the bombs hit are difficult. Your family isn’t exactly well off and you don’t have much money either. But over time things improve and you manage to save enough money to buy a place of your own.

Your son is born in November of 1998. He’s healthy and happy, but he does have a tendency to cry a lot. You figure he’s just going through the baby stage, but he cries a lot more than usual. You’ve tried everything to help him, but nothing works.
> change his diaper

You change his diapers every two hours until he cries less. It takes awhile, but eventually he stops crying altogether.You think you might be done with diapers now.
> feed him

You feed him every three days and then some. You don’t want him to become dependent on you. You also don’t want him to grow up thinking that food is something you’re going to waste.
You also don’t want him to grow up thinking that you’re weak.
> get a job

You get a job working as an assistant manager at a local diner. The pay is low, but it’s better than being homeless. You keep telling yourself that you won’t have enough money to support a family someday, but you’re wrong. Five years pass…

“What happened?” you ask.

You jump off the boat and onto the deck. You look around and see nothing out of place. You wonder if you made a wrong decision.”Hey! What the **** are those things?” someone shouts.
> jump into the water

You jump into the water and swim away from the others. They were probably scared ****less. You swim as fast as you can until you reach land. You look around and see nothing out of place either. You do notice something odd though. A small island appears out of nowhere.
> go onto the island

You head to the island and explore it. You find it completely deserted save for a single tree. You walk up to it and examine it closely. It seems to be made of wood, but its leaves seem to be green rather than normal leafy green.
> find love

You take a deep breath and stare intently at the tree. Your eyes meet with the tree’s. You immediately feel a strong sense of euphoria. You smile and touch the tree. Its bark feels warm to the touch. You sniff the tree and find that its scent is very pleasant.

You enter the cave and begin to breathe in the pure oxygen of space. You gasp and giggle uncontrollably. You forget all about the others. You forget about yourself entirely.
 Everything fades to black.
> contuinue

> jump into the hold

You jump into the hold of the spaceship and begin to float there. You begin to laugh uncontrollably. This is not real. This is just a bad dream. You begin laughing so hard that you fall unconscious.

When you wake up, you find yourself floating in a bright white room.

You sneak into the room and take a seat on the bed. You start to feel very strange. Your eyes begin to burn and you feel sick. You feel like you are going to die any second. You sit there for hours listening to music and thinking about the future. Eventually you lose consciousness.

You press the button down once more and the elevator begins its rapid ascent. You look at each other and smile. This was definitely worth it.
