It’s the day after spring break and there’s an apocalypse. This is no ordinary apocalypse…it will go down in history as the balloon apocalypse. A new toy came out and the inventor was super rich already so he decided to give all of his new inventions out for free. The inventions was a personal hot air balloon. So really, he didn’t invent anything new at all. He really just took something that already existed and made them smaller. Almost every on the planet got their own personal hot air balloon and start flying around. Soon enough, the skies were filled with hot air balloon’s of all designs because people were adding their own personal flare. Every color of hot air balloon imaginable was in the air and flying around. Before long, people starting crashing into each other and people were falling from the sky in their personal hot air balloon. If this was not a problem enough, each hot air balloon also had a design flaw which made them fail after about 15 minutes of flying around. Everyone was falling from the sky and dying. This was the apocalyptic scenario.
The person I would bring from class is Margaret because she is smart, sensible, and seems to make decisions logically. Most of the time, I don’t follow the most logical path of reasoning in my decisions, so it would be good to have a logical person to help make informed decisions that I could trust. Margaret is also a great writer, and it would be fun to work on writing books with her if there were no other people left on Earth. Margaret is also interesting to talk with, and that would be important if there were only a few people left on Earth.
From the readings, I would choose Robert Nozick because he is a famous philosopher. I have read some of his work in the past and think he would be profoundly interesting to talk with at length. Just like Margaret, if I’m going to be spending a lot of time with my power trio, I would want to have stimulating conversations to pass the time and keep my brain sharp. Nozick would probably help with the writing that Margaret and I decided to do as well, since he’s a decent writer.
Thirdly, I would choose Alexis Wolfer. She’s an entrepreneur who started TheBeautyBean.com. I choose her almost randomly. I googled top female entrepreneurs because I thought I’d find some people who are innovative, driven, and fun to be around. Alexis was on some of the top lists of entrepreneurs, and I think she would be very good at solving problems. Her whole brand is also built around health and wellness, so she would help the entire group remain healthy in times of trouble.
