I have been watching that History Channel Show, 'Life After People" and I gotta say, after everything, our toy collections prolly wont even last ten years.

And hypothetically the roof on my home would rot, moisture would get into my glass case, causing mold to build up on the figures, the paint would fade, and then the roof would collapse and destroy my glass case, and Lions that have wondered in from Africa would eat the mold laden figures for sustenance, further extinguishing all traces of human existence (and JLU) wouldn't it be funny if the only figures that survived were the ones with warped legs, that would be ironic...


thoughts??

I keep my collection hermetically sealed in a iron vault. I think it's safe after man.

That show is so dumb, imo.

Why does anybody care? We won't be here.

Of course crap is going to fall apart and go to heck. Who would possibly think that wouldn't be the case.

Just look at these pictures from Chernobyl and you'll see what looks like when humans are out of the picture...

The Chernobyl seen in Call of Duty 4 is very well done after seeing those pictures.

I'm sure there will be landfills full of millions of extra-articulated JLU Supermen, Batmen, Flashes, and GL's for alien visitors to find when they explore this planet in the future.


And I'm sure in the future some explorer from another world will come here and do an "Indiana Jones" and find all lost Secret Society and Legends of the League 6 packs in some old burried Mattel warehouse.

I don't know about the show but I did read the book "The World Without Us" by Alan Weisman. I found it fascinating. He covers a few different scenarios and locations and describes how exactly things go to hell with no human intervention. Sounds like the same premise as the show?

Plastics will have a long life, though. The compounds will breakdown but it'll take a while.

FYI, this came off way more harshly than I intended. Apologies if I caught anyone the wrong way.

I'm reminded of a scene towards the end of Grant Morrison's run on Animal Man. Apparently a nuclear war decimated one of the many earths in the multi-verse. In order to protect their collections the humans of said world transported their comic-books to another universe. One of the characters in the story then comments "Collectors always make sure their collections survive." I laughed my ass off and since then I have had that in my mind as a way to save my toys.

We watched the tragedy unfold
We did as we were told
We bought and sold
It was the greatest show on earth
But then it was over
We ohhed and aahed
We drove our racing cars
We ate our last few jars of caviar
And somewhere out there in the stars
A keen-eyed look-out
Spied a flickering light
Our last hurrah
Our last hurrah

And when they found our shadows
Grouped 'round the TV sets
They ran down every lead
They repeated every test
They checked out all the data on their lists
And then, the alien anthropologists
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
For our sad demise
They logged the only explanation left
This species has amused itself to death
