The question - of course - is not if the world is ending. The question is how.
Over the past year, I've written about a wide variety of horrific and deadly things, any of which would be more than worthy of its own apocalypse.
Out of all of the terrors that I've highlighted on this blog, however, one stands out as the most sinister, the most malevolent, the most dangerous.
100,000,000,000,000,000 ants in the world, all of them working obsessively for the good of their ever-growing colonies. The antpocalypse is pretty much inevitable, as far as I can tell.
Zombies? Bring them on. Anyone with an attitude and a sword can take on a few slow, bumbling zombies.
Ants, on the other hand? We're completely helpless against ants.
The end is coming.

Believe it or not, not everyone agrees with me that ants will be the catalyst for the end of the world. Check out some other possible world-enders at the Choose Your Own Apocalypse blogfest:
