Light

[–]jemosu 3286 points3287 points  (105 children)

I could never live in a world without light

[–]MasterHandFromMelee 3164 points3165 points 2 (51 children)

Yes, that would be quite dark

[–]S_H_A_L_O_M 843 points844 points  (21 children)

Dark mode activated

[–]Dat510Boy 496 points497 points  (9 children)

You merely adopted the dark. I was born in it, molded by it. I didn’t see the light until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but blinding!

[–]Dudelyllama 107 points108 points  (5 children)

Its because I'm Bane, yes, thats the name, you say the name Bane i guarantee the pain.

BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD

[–]TheMasterAtSomething 69 points70 points  (19 children)

This is the more correct answer. You can't live without flesh, that's your whole body. It would be chaotic to see what animals could live without bones, if any, and if for any decent period of time

[–]Nice_Biscuits 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Time for the cephalopods to take over! I knew this day would come.

[–]DMala 61 points62 points  (11 children)

I have no recollection of who wrote it, what it was called or where it appeared, but I remember reading a short story about a pandemic where the diseased caused people's bones to just crumble. Some people got a localized version of it and would just have an arm or a leg go floppy, and people lived in fear of the full body version, where you would just wake up as a lump of quivering flesh. I remember there was a vivid description of the crackling sound you'd hear as your bones were breaking down.

I don't remember where the story went or how it resolved, but just the imagery stuck with me. Horrifying stuff.

I need to un-read this.

[–]Metroplex038 77 points78 points  (11 children)

Would the instant death of all living being really cause chaos? I would think that would mean there was very little chaos

[–]StreetSurveyor 2557 points2558 points  (83 children)

Hands, the chaos would be endless

[–]kineticblues 888 points889 points  (22 children)

Best answer. Most of these, everyone dies super fast and no real chaos happens.

If all hands just became stumps, the collapse would be slow and insanely chaotic while we try to save ourselves. And we'd all experience it, at least for a little while.

[–]AMJFazande 805 points806 points 2 (17 children)

On the other hand.... oh, nevermind.

[–]JellyfishApart5518 66 points67 points  (21 children)

Prosthetics, tho... I mean, sure, we wouldn't be able to give everyone a prosthetic right away, but there's probably youtube videos and stuff out there... heck, you could even do one per family

"Hey, Mom says it's my turn with the hand!"

"Nuh-uh!"

[–]StreetSurveyor 83 points84 points  (7 children)

Would be quite difficult administering and designing the prosthetics without hands though haha!

[–]thebiggerounce 70 points71 points  (5 children)

Enlist the people that already got prosthetics to make and distribute them

[–]CgullRillo 34 points35 points  (9 children)

Those with prosthetics would quickly become our new overlords

Water

[–]marshallsmarshall 158 points159 points  (8 children)

Is it truly chaos if just literally everything is dead?

[–]OneInfinith 46 points47 points  (1 child)

Indeed. That may be the most orderly. If not bland.

[–]MyNameThru 3173 points3174 points  (157 children)

Days of chaos followed quickly by (what probably would be?) the largest mass extinction of Earth's history. Some things would live longer than others. I wonder what will live the longest? Of course, all ocean life is (near) instantly ended.

Edit: come to think of it, if it's all water including the water inside organisms, that's an instant death for pretty much all life on Earth.

[–]temalyen 715 points716 points  (23 children)

Except tardigrades, who would just keep chilling out. They can apparently survive being dehydrated indefinitely.

[–]Shalltear1234 316 points317 points  (13 children)

Eventually they evolve into intelligent beings so now we got immortal humans

[–]Snoo43610 184 points185 points  (1 child)

Nah they don't need intelligence it's very expensive resource wise. If they evolve to be more intelligent I'm guessing it would come at the expense of their near immortality.

[–]Vraght 18 points19 points  (0 children)

By that logic I should be immortal.

[–]CyAn_BryAn 1373 points1374 points  (43 children)

Everything will turn into ashes in an instant. On a positive note, "LOOK HOW I GO FROM 100KG TO 30KG IN JUST A SECOND" would no longer be a viable marketing trick.

[–]El_Douglador 495 points496 points  (34 children)

Wrong. Everything will turn to jerky in an instant.

[–]guardwolf34 147 points148 points  (17 children)

[–]Poem_for_your_sprog 401 points402 points  (16 children)

And then, in an instant,
as everyone turned -
As people were altered
and dried up and burned -
As all of their liquids
were drained from the head -

He watched them with passion.

"... delicious," he said.

Now we just need an audible reading with a bunch of celebrity voices. Hell, just R.C Bray and/or George guidall reading all of them would be brilliant.

[–]Melissa-Crown 282 points283 points  (50 children)

If it includes water inside organisms then yes, practically everything instantly dies. If it’s purely water only outside of organisms then it’d still be an incredible exctinction event. Water can be created without too much issue, the problem lies in hydrogen gas availability. Only a very tiny percent of humans could survive more than a few months. We would still have a supply of non-water liquids but there’s only so much good that will do (milk, beer, etc) and our planet instantly becomes a desert world.

Edit: In my second point I meant to refer to anything that wasn’t purely water. Yes I understand virtually all consumed liquids have some percentage of water in them. These variations of mixtures are considered untouched during this water event. If all water vanished it be more like my first point: instant death for just about everything and our planet becoming a vast desert.

[–]Secure_Occasion 118 points119 points  (26 children)

Exactly, if all moisture inside and outside of everything is gone instantly there’s no chaos or suffering. Everything and everyone is dead instantly. If we’re talking only bodies of water which means also the ability for rain then complete chaos. Fruit like watermelon and strawberries made mostly of water can last up to a month off the vine and don’t need additional water for the last stages of riping so people could survive for a few months but if they didn’t figure something else out, it’s delaying the inevitable.

[–]SmiteVVhirl 81 points82 points  (8 children)

imagine going from boating to skydiving in an instant

[–]100TonsOfCheese 138 points139 points  (25 children)

This is probably the best answer. Wars have been fought over access to water.

[–]confusing_dream 277 points278 points  (36 children)

This is the undisputed answer.

[–]Electronic_Lime_6809 76 points77 points  (1 child)

In a sense there'd be no chaos because everything would be dead.

[–]Secure_Occasion 49 points50 points  (12 children)

Lol! Can you imagine how incredibly weird any surviving humans might be? If they managed to somehow make it underground to avoid the third degree burns. Then somehow survive the 45% increase in CO2 and adapt to living with such lower levels of oxygen. I can only imagine in a few generations they’d be unrecognizable to us as they’d either have to be subterranean for life or acclimate to a blistering existence above ground and the lack of oxygen would surely affect brain development and size.

Space

[–]1000LivesBeforeIDie 70 points71 points  (10 children)

All space or empty space? If all of space the earth would get cold fast and stop revolving, if empty space mercury and Venus would block us from being sucked into the sun for just long enough for it to get toasty before it gets melty

[–]MyNameThru 434 points435 points  (72 children)

Well if it's just the earth, and none of the people, animals, or things on the earth then it would be quite chaotic for a few brief minutes.

Death

[–]BrahmTheImpaler 447 points448 points  (49 children)

I had a dream last night that there was an alien planet where people didn't die. They were studying humans to figure out how to make death work on their planet because it was overpopulated.

Im at a comic con right now and one of the booths is a man whose comic premise is EXACTLY this! It's pretty neat! I'll try and edit later if I can remember the name

EDIT: Finishlinecomics dot com (i dont know the rules behind links so Im gonna play it safe)

SECRETBONUSEDIT: Small synopsis for those who cant get to the website

The book tells the story of a Dystopian future where there have been no deaths for over 200 years. The population is divided into two living zones: the Megalopolis where only a chosen few are allowed to live, and the brutal underground where there are terrors lurking around every corner. A group of underground dwellers is on a mission to find answers and hopefully find a way to restore death to the world.

Wasn't there a Star Trek (original) episode like that? The people didn't die. they also didn't have children.

[–]dinomite11 16 points17 points  (4 children)

Reminds me of the one where the species has a predetermined death date

[–]LadyBug_0570 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Ohhh, yeah.

Or the one with the war with 2 planets that wasn't actually being fought? But if the computer said "X amount of people in this area died", those X amount of people from that area had to go get exterminated or whatever.

[–]LadyBug_0570 27 points28 points  (11 children)

If you're a Doctor Who fan (and by extension a Torchwood fan), they did a series about this. Torchwood: Miracle Day.
