} So, somebody clued a few of you guys in on that doomsday tomorrow, eh?
} Kinda awful, isn't it? Everybody on Earth doomed inside of the next
} 48 hours? Well, normally I don't like to directly solve your
} problems, but in respect for all the many excellent tributes I've
} received over the years, I'll give you a hand. I've just sent Zadoc
} and some priests off to mail you a care package. Here are its
} * One (1) Spaceship, Noah's Ark class.
} * Ten million (10,000,000) tons of fuel, whose container conveniently
} self-powers a mass and weight reducer built into the container,
} allowing for ease of portability and storage.
} * Seventy-five (75) years of food for 100 people.
} * One (1) book, "Answers to Great Questions of the Universe," by yours
} truly. I've always sort of dodged the issue on some of the bigger
} things, but I figure you'll need something to read on the ship.
} * Five (5) helper robots, who will assist with steering, navigation,
} and general chores.
} * One thousand (1,000) miracle cure-all pills, which will fix pesky
} problems like severed limbs, acne, and aging.
} * One (1) starchart of the galaxy, along with an almanac to allow you
} to choose a new home wisely.
} * Ten million (10,000,000) galactic credits, to be used if you decide
} to live somewhere populated and civilized.
} * One thousand (1,000) rifles, to be used if you decide to live
} somewhere populated and less civilized.
} * Ten (10) nuclear warheads, to be used if you decide to live
} somewhere populated and more civilized.
} * One (1) book, "South Equitorial Martian in 30 Days," to be used if
} you decide to live somewhere populated that serves a wonderful
} * One (1) Hershey bar.
} * One (1) towel, because it's so amazingly useful.
} * One (1) PC, with Nethack installed. It's gonna be a long trip.
} The ship is filled with farming and manufacturing equipment in the
} cargo hold, so hopefully you'll be fine in the long run.
} Oh, Zadoc's back from shipping it out already. It shouldn't arrive
} much later than the day after tomorrow. Enjoy!
} You owe the Oracle your forgiveness, but do you have any idea what
} overnight shipping from a higher plane would've cost for this stuff?
