You’re the last person on Earth. What do you spend your time doing?

Contestant 1

There’d be a lot of things to do if you were the only one left on Earth. You’d be excited, as well as nervous, because there wouldn’t be anyone else to guide you. You’d also be really sad because your family members weren’t here anymore, but you would have to move on no matter what.

First, being a foodie, I would go to the nearest supermarket and get a lot of snacks, particularly chocolate, without paying since no one would be there. Isn’t that the coolest thing ever?! Then I would go to McDonald’s or Starbucks and enjoy a meal there.

Second, I would just choose a car on the street and drive it – I actually don’t have a driving licence but I wouldn’t need it, right? Also, I wouldn’t need to worry about crashing into people. What’s more, I could break all the traffic rules and still get away with it.

Third, I would drive to Ocean Park and see the dolphins and sea lions. There would be no one to feed them or take care of them, so I would have to do that. I would also go to the Hong Kong Wetland Park and feed the animals there, too. I wonder what Pui Pui – Hong Kong’s celebrity crocodile – would eat. I believe that would take up my first day. The following days would pass by quickly, and then I’d end up feeling that there was nothing left to do. That’s why I would never want to be the only person left on Earth!

Contestant 2

Holy! Was there a world war, or a second Black Death, or did Donald Trump kill off the whole world except me with his orangey- and blobfish-like presence? Or did some of those cringey musical.ly stars poison the entire world by acting inappropriately and thinking the world of themselves? Wait, it could even be global warming (I told you, save the environment or prepare for doomsday!).

I think the latter three scenarios would be the most likely ones. But anyway, if I were the last person on Earth, there’d be a high chance of me dying like everyone else did, so I’d leave something behind as proof or evidence of what happened to us. This would help any aliens or future organisms solve the mystery of how humans vanished from the face of the Earth. I would record my thoughts and views on the important events or people who caused this devastation on tape and make several copies.

I would also scatter hints around Earth and leave clues, along with a map of important places, to help future investigators understand what caused our extinction (but I’d make sure only smart couch potatoes like me would be able to solve this).

I’d also write a letter, something like: “Ooh, where you from? Must be heaven! Or another planet because every person just died, probably because of Trump Phobia (thanks, Fifth Harmony!).” I’d tell them how advanced humans were. I mean, we invented #throwbackthursdays and we were so #tumblr, dude.

Those tapes would be sent everywhere, until the right person / creature figured it out. Then I would also become famous because of my contributions to history (who knows, maybe a super-hot alien would fall in love with me, jkjk).

I credit my tape idea to 13 Reasons Why ... but who can blame me, right? That show’s only downside is that you can finish it in like one day.

That’s probably why we became extinct. The show was just too short. Ahh, it’s all your fault, 13 Reasons Why. And to the people who caused the extinction, don’t go all Biebs on me and ask me “Is it too late now to say sorry?”, because if you’re hearing this tape, it really is.

DUN-DUN-DUNN!

If i am the last person on Earth,I will spend my time to go to a big stage and play guitar on the big stage.Actually,performing on the big stage is my dream but i don't have enough courage to do this.So i will use this chance to perform on the stage.I think that's very meaningful to me and i must do this when i am the last person on Earth.Then,I will go to the musical instruments shop to get a better electric guitar because mine is suck and i want to have a better one.

If I am the last person on Earth,I will go to the supermarket and take all the delicious food away.I am so glad that I don't need to pay for the food.Moreover,I will tear all the homework and books.It is because I don't really like doing homework.Doing homework make me feel stressed,especially maths.

If I were the last person on the earth, I would like to travel the entire world with a most expensive car. By the way, I have never drive and expect I will get a lot of time to learn it. Furthermore, I can try the best food in all country. Sadly, there has no chef cook that for me. I must be upset when I am boring. There is no one can speak to me. At last, I might suicide.

If I am the last man on earth , that means there are animals , I wont feel lonely .
First , I am going to gather up all the animal in one place , no matter they are house pet or wild animal even they are in zoo , because if I dont release them out , they might die from hunger , and I will left a tons of food there before i go to do another thing.
Second , I am going to drive a machine hanging a massive steel ball which is use for destruction . I am going to destroy every building in HK , but not included monuments , because i can get in there , and sleep , like the ancient !
At last , i will gather up all the food , and hide in a profound dugout , because all the nuclear power plant on earth will explode because no one go to replace the cool down water which is for cool down reaction furnace , so it explode because of overheat , earth usher in a extremely extensive nuclear winter , 90% of creatures will die . And I'm staying in a dugout with a lots of food , books and most important, advanced computer ! :D

If I were the only one person in the world,I wouldn't live anymore.Because there will no one will talk to me and being alone is the most terrible thing for me.Although I can do whatever i want,I think that is all bullshit without people's care and attention

If I am the last person on the earth, I will spend my time to eat a lot of delicious foods such as pizza, ice cream, chocolate, cake and pudding. I will try all different types of food. I don't need to pay for the food. Moreover, I will go to ice-skating because I can skate all day.If I fall down to the ground,no one will laugh at me.

If i were the last person in the world, i would know more about the nature.
First,i will visit the country park to watch the gergeous scenery.We don't have time to do that as we have to work or study every day.Now i have time to do that so i would know how they are beautiful.
Also,i would write everything i have seen.Although no one would stay in the world,i want to save this moment by my pen and it would become the evidence that human was in the world and they create cultures.However,i don't know who can read it in the future.
In conclusion,i would know more about the nature and write the things i have seen.Actually,i don't what i would do if this was real because no one can know the future.

If I were the last person on the earth, I would suicide immediatly because I could not play online games without any people on the world. Also, I could not play team sports in the world that have nobody. By the way, maybe there are some aliens invade the earth and I could not interrupt them by myself. I did not want to be a experimental subject of them.

If I was the last person on Earth,I would miss my parents and friends certainly,but I would keep on living.And I would try my best in order to live for being the last person on Earth.It is because although I was the only one left on earth,the plants and animals would still alive.Even if no one would stay with me,the plants and animals would live with me.Also,although I was the last person in the world,I would feel interested of exploring the things that I haven't known and tried.

If I am the last person on Earth,I will spend my time to find the delicious food all over the world since I am a super foodie! I also like to eat food while playing computer games. Therefore,I want to go to the computer game store when I'm full. I want to take a lot of game from the store and get free ps4 and free computer. All the things is free now so I can easily get it. Finally, I will suicide after I play all the games which I want to play and eat all the delicious food, because I will feel lonely sometimes, I will also miss my friends and parents. It isn't interesting to live alone and all the resources will be exhausted so I want to meet them in the heaven.

If I were the past person on Earth ,I would like to spend my time to appreciate to the view of the nature.Just go to somewhere that I have not been to ,like Plateau De Valenole .There are different virbrant flowers .How an awesome garden!
Meanwhile ,I would like to consume a lot of food,like the chocolate ice cream, french fries, frozen yoghurt and so on.As I did not always eat them in the past and I have no chance to eat that anymore.
