The nucleus of Halley is ellipsoidal in shape and measures approximately 16 by 8 by 8 kilometers (10 by 5 by 5 miles).

http://solarviews.com...

For the sake of argument, it was nudged by a rogue object and is now on a collision course with Earth expected to reach land fall somewhere in the middle of the US.

Where would you want to be when it hits?

Personally, i would want a front row seat just far enough away to watch it happen.

Any event like this I would get the best viewing angle.

Aliens invade. I will be right there to shake their hands - first if I could

Killer comet = good drugs, and a nice hillside

I don't get the "must survive regardless how much post-apoplectic live will be". Why? So I can die later miserable after watching the worse of all possible worlds?

It's logical to assume being as far away from a meteorite strike as you can maximizes your survival prospects. I want to maximize my survival prospects.

I assume your logic is death is inevitable as the comet is so large so get it over with and see an amazing natural event in the process?

Bout half right. Let's say I did live. Let's say 30-60% of humanity die, and the infrastructure for same is destroyed. Not the worse, but damn bad. Could you life? Would you want to?

Yes I could live. It would be possible for me to adapt to the new more primitive life. If it was really that bad you could always commit suicide at a later date. I think it would be stupid just to die in the initial impact without at least sampling post impact life. After all were people in the 1800s that much more unhappy than people today?

I can buy that. I don't want to live with there has been that much suffering just to "live". Plenty of reasons to think that it might be "better" in some respects, but still I would not want it.

Now... How much would you need to ratchet it up for you to NOT want to live? Not the loss of stuff, but the loss of live. 80%. 99.999%?

You won't be safe on the other side of the Earth. So much dust will be thrown up into the atmosphere that when it falls down the friction will heat the air to oven temperatures. It will literally rain fire. The only way you might survive is deep inside a mountain with food and water for a year or more. Even then it is doubtful.

Good question. Still I think I would at least sample life and if it was so bad take action to end it later. If I was at the opposite end of the planet hopefully that's where most survivors are and the damage to infrastructure lowest. In some ways the lower number of people would be necessary as food supplies would be very limited. It's likely survivors would need to grow their own food.

Yes good idea. An underground bunker on the opposite side of the world. Yes it would most likely fail but I would try it.

Sure, but would you want to live underground in a bunker for the rest of your life? Nothing on the surface would survive, food and water would run out in a short time and you would starve. A rather dismal and painful end such that at some point, you wished you did have a front row seat to the global killing event.

Regrettably, yes. But it is, you know, a sacrifice required for the future of the human race. I hasten to add that since each man will be required to do prodigious... service along these lines, the women will have to be selected for their sexual characteristics which will have to be of a highly stimulating nature.

For the sake of argument, it was nudged by a rogue object and is now on a collision course with Earth expected to reach land fall somewhere in the middle of the US.

Where would you want to be when it hits?

Personally, i would want a front row seat just far enough away to watch it happen.

As someone who currently lives in the middle of the U.S. I'd probably want to go somewhere else.

For survival prospects, you'd probably want to be more than 2000km away to eliminate the possibility of direct blast damage, in an area containing buildings of non-flammable and solid construction to survive any resulting firestorm, or a cave for temporary shelter.

Infrastructure damage from a resulting firestorm would likely be significant, although North America would probably be a near total loss, infrastructure in the rest of the world would likely be recoverable. Saying this, in all likelihood western countries would likely fair worse than less developed countries, primarily because of the dependance on infrastructure for food, logistics, etc, and the likelihood of significant anarchy in major European and Asian cities would probably be significant. So, you'd probably want to be in a smaller town or village in a developing location that is relatively self-suffiient in terms of food.

You'd likely want to be away from the sea, and away from any active volcanos due to the possibility of induced volcanism, or Tsunami effects. You would also want to be closer to the equator to mitigate some of the effects of meteoric winter.

So, Long Kor cave in Laos is probably where I'd want to be.

Personally, i would want a front row seat just far enough away to watch it happen.

The opposite side of the world to maximize survival prospects.

You won't be safe on the other side of the Earth. So much dust will be thrown up into the atmosphere that when it falls down the friction will heat the air to oven temperatures. It will literally rain fire. The only way you might survive is deep inside a mountain with food and water for a year or more. Even then it is doubtful.

Yes good idea. An underground bunker on the opposite side of the world. Yes it would most likely fail but I would try it.

Sure, but would you want to live underground in a bunker for the rest of your life? Nothing on the surface would survive, food and water would run out in a short time and you would starve. A rather dismal and painful end such that at some point, you wished you did have a front row seat to the global killing event.

Probably true but I would try it in the hope things outside improved sufficiently after a year so that it would be possible to somehow be able to come out of the bunker and try and find a good source. I know starvation is highly likely but I'd rather die trying then just give up.

There wouldn't be any source of food as nothing would survive; plants, animals would all be extinct and it would take millions of years for any life to emerge again. You might actually be better off living on Mars.

True mars would theoretically be safer but it's easier build an underground bunker with enough food supplies for a lifetime. Getting to mars and setting up a colony is not currently possible.

Yes, and that would prove to be difficult considering the millions of people who will kill you for your bunker.

Any event like this I would get the best viewing angle.

Aliens invade. I will be right there to shake their hands - first if I could

Killer comet = good drugs, and a nice hillside

I don't get the "must survive regardless how much post-apoplectic live will be". Why? So I can die later miserable after watching the worse of all possible worlds?

I'm with you, buddy. I'll bring the "Kush-ions"
