Staff Q&A: Which end-of-the-world scenario do you most fear?

"Contagion" hits theaters Friday, so we asked staff: Which end-of-the-world scenario do you most fear?

•••• Human cloning + Kardashians. Luke Broadwater, managing editor, b

•••• I think I would most fear an invasion by aliens who use us as appetizers, employ us as shuttlecocks for games of badminton, or otherwise cramp our style. Anne Tallent, editor, b

•••• The one where everyone gets out of their cars and R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts” is playing on a constant loop. Wesley Case, reporter, b

•••• Where inbred hillbillies take over and discover you hiding in your basement. What? I’ve seen it on History Channel specials. Jordan Bartel, assistant editor, b

•••• Whatever one is in Chris Brown and J. Biebs’ video for “Next to You.” There are fires, earthquakes and chaos, and all they can do is dance. Not counting on them to save my life. Jan Diehm, designer, b

•••• Being trapped on a deserted island with Bachmann, Perry, Limbaugh and birthers. I’d gladly inject myself with a killer disease or be infected by a killer zombie rather than spend one good minute talking to this crew. John-John Williams IV, reporter, The Baltimore Sun

•••• After the last few weeks we’ve had, a GIANT HurriQuake that knocks out Baltimore! Mick Lee, Z104.3

•••• Those mile-high tides that form if an asteroid hit the ocean look terrifying. Imagine standing at the base of a wall of water like that. Would you be crushed or just drown? Either way … yikes! Olivia Hubert-Allen, community manager,The Baltimore Sun
