If I wasn't 100% sure I was the last I'd look for someone else. I'd spend an eternity looking for him. If I was sure I was the last one left, I'd kill myself. It would be too lonely.

Assuming that all humans on earth(except myself) vanished completely, not all dying and leaving behind bodies or anything(really don't wanna think about that) eek2 :

I'd probably spend most of my time traveling around, visiting peoples houses to see what they were like. Once I was satisfied I'd probably go to Washington DC and write all my thoughts down and store them in the library of congress. Probably take up residence at a historical location for a while during my years of exploration, somewhere like the white house. Eventually settling down on a cozy farm, keeping myself busy maintaining it and tending to the animals. I'd probably not spend too much time in big cities like New York, it would be kind of creepy knowing that I am completely and utterly alone in the world. As long as I kept busy I could probably keep my sanity, maybe convince myself that there were people out there somewhere. I do have to admit that I'd get very lonely after a while..eventually I would die, all that would have to happen is for me to get an infection or a mortal wound and that would be it(although I'd probably welcome death after a while).

I suggest everyone who would swallow all drugs left on the planet to do it when they get old, because they'd die. Plain and simple.

As for myself...

At first, I'd throw a party celebrating Earth's (and maybe the universe's) cleansing of its cancer and the end of all evil. With that out of the way:

I'd help myself on the whole planet, but I'd eventually get bored of it.

It would also depend on why the rest of humanity is no more.

I'd try to get in touch with aliens, trying to get them to notice me, and ask them to take me to some other planet, or around the galaxy, who knows. Many would like to see (or study...) the last Homo Sapiens Sapiens in the universe. But I'm afraid they'd just take what's left of the planet's resources, take me as a prisoner, and perform all kinds of experiments on me. But since would be no females left, I don't think I'd be more of a curiosity. I mean, humanity is gone in some years when I die. Period. No recreating it or anything.

Otherwise, I'd write a journal, a codex in a simple script with symbolical explanations to help them decipher it, for any future visitors of the planet, explaining what happened and where to look if they want to discover what humanity was like and what it knew. Developing it would probably take all that's left of my life, if not more. But I'd still go for it. I know the feeling of discovering something about a civilization and not being able to know anything more because some stuff got lost. And it sucks.

I'd also add a footnote at the end of it all, saying it's not worth the grief.

Thats a good question. Alone in the whole planet. I would probably be wandering around for a long time, i could journey all over europe and asia and eventually settle down and ...dunno. Either I would go crazy and kill myself or find something to occupy myself with and live out the rest of my life. And yes i would rape animals:(

Provided the world is still functioning, only without people (That is, the internet is up with all sites, elcetricity, water, and such are working...)
I would interact with people in LDs, Just to keep me sane.
I would light any TV I'll see, just to feel that there are people around me.
I will cry for days and nights.
I would take a cellphone, and write the number anywhere I'll go - someone might call!
I will be sure that god, or any other supernatural being had given me a mission on earth
I will start practicing psionics and meditation
I will take many animals with me
I will build a time machine!

hmm. if everyone suddenly went *poof* and vanished, i'd probably spend the first couple months looking for people. eventually though, i'd just start exploring the world, writing down what i see as i go along. would probably find a really big truck and fill it up with supplies, so i don't have to keep looking for stuff. breaking the law doesnt seem like much of a thrill to me, since the law will be completely useless with only me around. i'd just ignore them and do whatever i feel is needed. i'm sure i would end up writing my own set of laws, as mankind should have made them. also, i'd make some nice riddles that involve key points all over the world, with hidden caches of books, records, memory sticks, blueprints, just about anything that would last a couple centuries of wear and tear. maybe someday aliens will discover earth and find the clues. maybe someone survived that i didn't know about. would be fun either way to try and preserve the history of mankind like that.

Hmm this one is hard.... shy2

Well think about this: if everyone just disapered then all the electricity would go out because there will be no one maintaining the power grids. So that would take put most of the options. Also who would take you places? Unless you can fly a plane or drive a boat you really can go anywhere and if you try anyway no one will help u when you crash. And were would u get drugs? Are you going to break into someones house and look for them? Most people do not have them. Another thing is would would u eat? All the food would go bad. And you would only be able to cook it on a fire because your stove would stop working.

If none of this happened I'd look for people then umm idk... cry
