(sound of feet racing for the hills, to launch in my Orion spaceship - only $1 billion to you sir, very fast take-off, trillion mile range takes two hundred people - and flee it all.....)
And where are all the nuclear submarines?
And the ships that rode out the waves in the deep sea?
And the people flying above it all in their hot air balloons?
And the tens of millions who noticed nothing, because it all took place in America?
So many options.
I'm thinking of my own alternative script... "The Other End Of The World."
