An oncoming asteroid, comet, or other such Extinction Level Event (E.L.E.) is rapidly coming ... what do you do? Well, a survey by Ziji Publishing to mark the U.K. release of "Cloud Cuckoo Land" by debut novelist Steven Sivell showed a variety of responses.
The survey of Brits indicated the majority, 54%, would spend it either with or on the phone to their loved ones. 13% would kick back with a drink, 9% would spend it in the missionary position (sex), 3% in prayer.
2% would eat really, really bad food for themselves (why not; indulge yourself) while another 2% would loot.
Thing is, this is pretty similar to "Last Night," a great movie addressing this same issue over a few hours. I particularly remember the one man who was trying to perform all sorts of sexual acts, including sex with a virgin and sex with an old teacher. So this apocalyptic novel isn't really that ... novel. But the survey results are.
