I had this little idea for a sci fi storyline, its not much but i think its ok. If it were to be made into a movie it would be about the war between the two earth sides. Anyway, here it is.
In 3033, scientists discovered the substance T.A.S on the moons inner core. The substance was at first ignored, as there was no use for it, until the great hrydrogeneric disaster, in witch the entire atmosphere was polluted with a chemical so deadly not even bacteria could survive. The earth turned into a dry baron desert land, Lying under the cover off deadly brown smog. The earth’s population was dropping thousands by the hour, until the earths scientists swiftly discovered that the T.A.S could be made into pills, If these pills were taken on a daily basis, a human being survive the poison. Soon factories began prossecing the plants into pills. There was plenty of drugs so earth’s population was soon again stable. Scientists found many more planets containing the drug, and began mining.
After 10 years of the worlds people living from a life drug, the supplies were low. The moon had run out of T.A.S. There was still some left on other planets, but not enough to supply the entire earth. After a while the earth had been split into two sides, the Terrain Orphans and the Fire Warriors (Or better names). The two sides were at war over the drug, and peace was far from near.January 24, 2004 at 3:35 pm #30619
uhm..sounds good, but it’s too generalized. it’s good as “background information” but you really need a proper story line. so far so good though.January 24, 2004 at 6:51 pm #30646
Just to let you know, 17 people die every 10 seconds. If my calculations are correct, then 102 die every miniute, and that would mean that 6120 people die every hour. So, in your story, that would mean that the death rate decreased! If you were to say hundred thousands, then that might make more since.
By the way, 40 people are BORN every 10 seconds, so that would mean that 14400 people are born every hour. So, the toal increase in population (Minus the death rate) would be 8280 people. Wow!
