    I think the word "survival" has somewhat negative vibe to it. Do I want to survive? No, I don't. I want to live.

    Exactly.
    I've always wondered, do people who talk about survival, following some major, global catastrophe, know what they're talking about?
    Let's suppose there was such a catastrophe.
    Would you WANT to be hiding in some radioactive woods or somewhere underground, fighting off other people and sundry creatures who'd want a piece of whatever you're having (or maybe of yourself), knowing that THAT is going to be your life for the foreseeable future: no more internet, no more pleasant walks in the country, no more going out with your friends for a pizza, no more of practically everything. For years and years and years, possibly for the rest of your life.

    I know I wouldn't.
    Not if I am going to die at some point, anyway.

    But I don't think we have much to fear.
    Not much more than in any usual, run-of-the-mill year on Earth, that is.
    Which is frightful enough.

    (And please, don't nitpick about technicalities: you know what I am trying to say, right? :-))
