Choose Your Own Apocalypse

This article invites you to determine what you think will cause America's downfall. I'm highly amused, though unfortunately the "Power Law OF DOOM" isn't mentioned among the 144 possible causes of our downfall. (Actually, this is somewhat related to the possible cause of "complexity", but I prefer to call it the Power Law OF DOOM.) My choice of apocalypse placed me one box to the left of the average reader and almost all the one to the top of the chart (close to two full boxes above the average reader). Note, however, that I only chose the "Rod of God" option as one of my five favorite apocalypses because it was damned amusing.
