True, but on the long run the reactors will fall apart eventually and leak, if no one repairs them ?
Yeah, so they'll release a little radiation... But the reaction will have been halted and they won't vaporize or explode, and therefore it will only affect anyone in direct proximity to it (unlike Chernobyl, which affected a HUGE area)
I think it's really fascinating that despite the OP unambiguously stating that you'd be the last person on Earth, most people's plans include looking for other people. It might just be that people aren't taking the OP at face value, but it might indicate some kind of common psychological need. I'm sure this means something, but I'm not sure what.
i was thinking along the lines of
"how can we be sure...if I survived, then chances are that someone else did too..especially some who live in hardened shelters/military personnel(like the ones in Norad)"
What if you woke up tomorrow and found out you were the last person on earth?
What would be the first thing you would do, how would you try to survive in this post-homosapien world?
First I'd find a thick pair of coke-bottle glasses and put them on. Then I'd assemble a huge stack of books out in the street, grab the top book and sit down. As I opened the book I'd let the glasses fall off my face so that they broke on the pavement.
Then I'd waddle down the street with a cane and laugh like the Penguin, while saying, "You can do it Rocky. You gotta eat lightning and crap thunder!"
The next day I'd get bored and so I'd look around at various things and places I could get into that I couldn't get into before. After a few days the weight of everything would hit me, and I'd mourn the loss of humanity. Then I'd go back to exploring, because that would help me get over it.
