Another suggestion[edit]

End of the world bingo:

  • Asteroids/Nibiru/Planet X/astronomically invisible star orbiting the sun
  • Computer related (including grey goo, and Y2000/Y2038 problem)
  • Assorted radiation-related topics
  • Reversing the (magnetic) polarity (inside or outside a police phone box)
  • 'An excess of predictions of the end of the world' (whether or not involving lampreys)

Any more? (And how many points for each?) Anna Livia (talk) 19:32, 10 January 2018 (UTC)


This page seems to have become a favorite target for vandals. Is there a reason why, or is it merely a trend? ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 01:03, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

Another prediction[edit]

∞th century[edit]

'I assume this end-of-the-world-scenario will not cause the Universes (yes, Universes( to be everlastingly empty, but will end the Universes, so can we change the specific part of the the section ?’-- (talk) 16:43, 18 November 2018 (UTC)


Is this list 'a bonfire of the apocalypses'? Anna Livia (talk) 20:21, 25 December 2018 (UTC)

More possibilities[edit]

Trump gets his wall started off, and 'five days after Brexit finally occurs.' Anna Livia (talk) 17:09, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

Fictional End of the World?[edit]

Could we add stuff from fiction, like the great journey from Halo?Tanker One (talk) 16:40, 31 May 2019 (UTC)

No, this list is for doomsday "prophecies" made by people in the real world. The point is to compile all the failed/probably going to fail "predictions" in one place in order to illustrate the absurdity of it all. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 16:46, 31 May 2019 (UTC)
We have a few jokingly fictional ones already in the list, but those tend to have articles anyway. Zero (talk - contributions) 16:52, 31 May 2019 (UTC)
